Confusion Is Next : The Sonic Youth Story - book cover picture

Foege does a great job of describing Sonic Youth from its beginnings in the early 70s until 1995. Being I was barely able to walk when Sonic Youth first formed, and not even a fan until 1995, I was eager to learn about the beginnings of the group. Seeing where the band, especially where Thurston comes from is a great way to understand their music. It also does a great job in describing the influence Sonic Youth had on the music world.Yes, 200 some pages hardly does justice to Sonic Youth. But being that there is no other biography on the band, I'd recommend that any fan picks up a copy of this book... I think I've read my copy three times.

Far, Far superior to Man in the Gray Flannel Suit


Book title: Revolutionary Road
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Revolutionary Road - book cover picture

I read it in 1990. The book is far superior to Man in the Gray Flannel Suit in terms of its character development and ending. The characters, appropriately named April and Frank Wheeler, are proto-yuppies, surrounded by shallow suburban values. (This was written in 1961 and takes place in 1955.) I found the part where they reminisce about old radio shows of the '30's interesting, putting to rest the notion that baby boomers were the first generation to indulge in nostalgia. I thought this would be a good vehicle for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

Probably the single most useful mac book on the market.

The Macintosh Bible - book cover picture

I have been using macs for about ten years and had read earlier editions of the mac bible and loved them. But after becoming an old mac hand (ignorance is bliss!) I had stopped feeling the need for newer editions of the mac bible. But last week my mother bought her first ever computer, a really sweet G3 Powerbook, and in preparation for flying across the country to tutor her I went shopping for some reference books to give us a hand. I bought the Mac Bible, the Mac OS 8.5 Black Book, and the Microsoft Office 98 Visual Basic Book. The Mac Bible is far and away the most helpful of the bunch. Easiest to read, most in depth and with valuable opinions, real life applications and a sense of humor. In fact I decided to return the Black Book and buy a Mac Bible for myself to take home.

The Door into Summer - book cover picture

Heinlein warped my mind at 13 and it's stayed that way ever since! The Door Into Summer is one of the best works of Sci-Fi ever, and definitely Heinlein's best. The excited, urgent feeling I got reading this book was intense. This isn't a book, it's an experience. If only that urgent feeling could be with me all the time...If you haven't read this book, quit wasting time and get it now!Sincerely,James Landrith

Life of Pi - book cover picture

When 16 year old Piscine finds himself in a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific, with a zebra, orangatan, hyena, and a Bengal tiger, he has to use his wits to survive. When his ordeal finally ends, 277 days later, he has to use his wits to return to society. 'The Life of Pi' is a compelling, complex, theological, thoroughly enjoyable book that will leave the reader sifting through it's many levels for a long time after finishing it. I think the interpretations of what this book really meant will be as varied as the readers. This book certainly outperformed all it's expectations for me. 5 Stars!

Halberstam brings alive baseball's "good 'ol days"


Book title: Summer of '49 (Perennial Classics)

Summer of '49 (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

David Halberstam recalls his boyhood heroes - their personalities, feats, and frailties - and spins an outstanding tale of yesteryear. Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams are brilliantly portrayed as the juggernauts they were - two generals leading their troops into an epic battle. This novel is not all fun and games, however, as Halberstam recounts the personal hardships many players endured. A note : fifty years from now, will someone be writing about how today's players toiled for "mere" millions? At the current rate, this appears likely. Make no mistake, this work reflects the TRUE "glory years" of baseball.

8 Minutes in the Morning: A Simple Way to Shed up to 2 Pounds a Week Guaranteed - book cover picture

When I decided to buy the book (I will try anything once) it occurred to me that I might do a few execises and then hide the book so that it couldn't easily be found and there would be no need for me to carry on exercising as 'exercising' is not me! But that is not what happened!
I'm very pleased to say that I am now on day 26 and have not looked back. Note that I have never before written a review but feel moved to do so on this book, because it is GOOD. Why? well it has several things going for it: 1)It takes only a short time each day. 2)The daily snippets of motivational/informational items encourage. 3)Easy to perform and at the end I feel invigorated and look forward to the next day.
This book gets my full support because it is instrumental in making a 'new me'. Buy it and do it!

The Digital Estate: Strategies for Competing, Surviving, and Thriving in an Internetworked World - book cover picture

There is a tremendous amount of hype written about the Internet today. Many of the books are written to describe why the online world is cool or simply to say that online business is inevitable. "The Digital Estate" is one of very few books that goes beyond that.


In this book you will find a serious discussion of what to do and how to do it. If you are running an Internet based firm you will be inspired. If you are responsible for your comapny's online presence, you will be educated. If you are a top level executive in a large coporation, you may be awakened. I can think of noone who is in business on the Net who will not benefit from reading this book. Many who will realize that it is time they got their act together. Chuck Martin truly "Get's it". He will help you "Get it" too.

Millions, billions, and trillions but not gazillions?


Book title: Millions of Cats
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Millions of Cats - book cover picture

I'm ashamed to say that prior to a children's literature course I took, I was completely ignorant of the works of Wanda Gag and her elegant, "Millions of Cats" until the ripe old age of 25. As it stands, the book is amazingly timeless, accompanied by beautiful pen and ink drawings illustrating each and every scene. There are plenty of details per page for kids to point out on their own and the words will not tax the average child. The daughter of a Bohemian painter, Gag was a superb artist in her own right. Nowhere else will you find this as evident as in "Millions of Cats". It remains one of the best American classic picture books of all time.
