A review of "Skipping Towards Armageddon: The Politics and Propaganda of the Left Behind Novels and the LaHaye Empire" — 7 years ago


If you’ve ever wanted to know just what the “Left Behind” series was all about, and what makes the people who read it tick, but don’t want to buy and read the series yourself, this book is worth a look. The author weaves themes and excerpts from the novel into a narrative about LaHaye and the movement he’s helped build. Plus, the summraries of the novels at the back of the book is another way to get some insight without having to read the whole series.

My only complaint was that there were a few too many typos in the copy I read. The publisher could have done more with copyediting.

A story about "Me Talk Pretty One Day" — 8 years ago


This was funny, but I like “Dress Your Family in Coduroy and Demin” better than this one.

A story about "Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers" — 9 years ago

Mary Roach is a bit of loon. She’s also a talented writer. It takes a certain amount of talent produce prose, on the subject of dead and decaying human flesh, that is well written enough to not only keep the reader turning pages but also wanting more at the end. (Her description of the process of human decay is at once memorable and entertaining.) It also takes a certain kind of reader to buy and read a book about the adventures of human cadavers. I’m not sure what kind of reader that is, but I’m now sure I’m one of them. For those curious about somewhat strange and morbid topics, and who also appreciate witty, intelligent writing, Mary Roach’s book is definitely the ticket. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn a few things, and you may even end up a bit smarter for having read it. And you’ll have some great new cocktail conversation…for people you want to frighten away.

A story about "The Culture of Make Believe" — 9 years ago


One of the most thought provoking books I’ve read in a very long time.

A story about "A Short History of Nearly Everything" — 9 years ago


I’d file this wonderful volume under “Science for Poets.”

A story about "THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED: Democracy, the Internet, and the Overthrow of Everything" — 9 years ago

Part memoir, part manifesto, part rallying cry. Buy it. Read it.

A story about "What Should I Do With My Life: The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question" — 9 years ago

I’m still working on answering this question for myself.

A story about "Gay Dads: A Celebration of Fatherhood" — 9 years ago

A wonderful book about the way gay men create families.

A story about "Between Parent and Child: The Bestselling Classic That Revolutionized Parent-Child Communication" — 9 years ago


A book I wish my parents had read, and one that I’m glad I read as a parent.

A story about "Banvard's Folly: Thirteen Tales of People Who Didn't Change the World" — 9 years ago

I wanted to read about the “also-rans.”
