Book Reviews

I, A Me-ist or The Portable Board: By Mykel Board, 382 pgs. By Keith

His writing just didn’t speak to me and I generally thought he was usually just trying to talk his way out of being a shithead.

Enchanters Vs. Sprawlburg Springs, The: By Brian Costello, 193 pages. By Megan Pants

I have always stood by the fact that I would rather read a good story rather than a perfectly punctuated one, and this definitely has a story worth reading.

You Can't Say That!: The Growing Threat to Civil Liberties...: By David E. Bernstein By Todd Taylor

Read it and get edumacated.

Answer Is Never: A Skateboarder's History of the World, The: By Jocko Weyland By Todd Taylor

Now, I'm not saying that skaters are dumbasses and should be talked down to, but large chunks of this book seem to be written readers of The New Yorker.

Dear Mr. Mackin: By Rich Mackin

He meticulously picks apart the worthiness of their products while making a complete mockery of the knee-jerkin’ commercial messages that are slavishly used to promote the mass-produced goods in question. And he accomplishes it all with a straight-faced childlike demeanor inquisitively streaking through each word.

War Against Oblivion, The:: The Zapatista Chronicles by John Ross By Sean Carswell

The War Against Oblivion is a glaring spotlight on the fact that the US and Mexican governments continue to kill the indigenous people of this continent.

Become the Media: by Jello Biafra, Audio Book By Sean Carswell

What I like about Jello Biafra is that he's punk rock's own well-respected intellectual.

Stories Hollywood Never Tells: Howard Zinn, Audio Book By Sean Carswell

Howard Zinn strikes me as an amazing writer, historian, and intellectual for several reasons. He delivers very complex information with a conversational tone, and he maintains a sense of humor when speaking of things that normally inspire outrage.
