Rebooting the American Dream: 11 Ways to Rebuild
Thom Hartmann has delivered another lucid explanation of what's gone wrong in America in recent decades, and, as ever, he is brief and to the point. I read this latest in one sitting and came away with …
Hamlet's BlackBerry: A Practical Philosophy for
William Powers believes that the billion or so of us who are networked via digital devices are so mindlessly addicted to the experience that we need a game plan for escape. He depicts us as so absorbed …
Deep Blue Home: An Intimate Ecology of Our Wild
Julia Whitty has delivered a marvelous overview of the state of our oceans, a tale redolent of scientific knowledge and infused with poetry. The prospects are bleak. Taken altogether it is very difficult …
Common Nonsense: Glenn Beck and the Triumph of
Alexander Zaitchick's critical biography of Glenn Beck is well researched, revealing and tedious. You'll learn more than you probably want to know about Beck, but if you buy this book you're probably …
Welcome to the Jungle: Everything You Ever Wanted
Welcome to the Jungle is far and away the best book on bipolar disorder FOR those diagnosed with the disorder that I have encountered in almost 40 years of reading on the subject. With a family member …

Quick Tips
posted a Quick Tip about Fountainhead. October 05, 2010
Frightening. For a somewhat more serious discussion of quality, check out Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance. At least he's not a greed-head like Rand.
posted a Quick Tip about Amazon.com. September 21, 2010

posted a Quick Tip about YouTube. September 21, 2010

posted a Quick Tip about Facebook. September 21, 2010
Great social networking site, surely soon to be surpassed by the next great idea. The stupid games are a drag, but easy enough to block. Far superior to the old MySpace - though having abandoned that …
posted a Quick Tip about Blackberry Bold 9000. September 21, 2010

posted a Quick Tip about Mac Book Pro. September 21, 2010
MacBook Pro
Am typing this on mine. Highly reliable, excellent computer - as have been all of the Macs I've owned since about 1987. MacPlus, Powerbook(s), iMac(s), iBook, this one and a MacBook Air.
posted a Quick Tip about iPhone 3G. September 21, 2010
Excellent device. AT&T service is dismal in my region, and AT&T's politics are worse. They have been organizing fundraisers for right-wing Republicans. So I sold my iPhone on eBay and purchased an HTC …
