(I'm still reading)

If you've been following this blog for a while, you might be asking: What happened to the book reviews?

Answer: I'm just behind on them.

No, I haven't been posting book reviews here for a while, but that doesn't mean I've stopped reading - I'm just buried in other commitments. I have 5 books to blog, including:

  • Phillip Bobbitt's Terror and Consent
  • Timothy Ferris' The Four-Hour Work Week
  • Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom
  • Charles Bazerman et al.'s Genre in a Changing World
  • Bollier's report entitled The Future of Work
In addition, I'll be reading David Neff and Randal Moss' The Future of Nonprofits when it comes out in early May.

When will I get to these? Not sure - I really have overloaded myself with projects over the next few months, but I hope to fire off a few reviews the second week of May. Until then, hang tight. And thanks for reading.

It totally understand about being overloaded with projects. But I am very interested to see your take on The Four-Hour Work Week.

And of course, as the current president of STC, I await your review of Neff and Moss's Future of Non Profits.
Actually glad the book is not out until end of May, after the big annual STC Summit in Sacramento.
Thanks, Clay.

The 4HWW was fascinating, although it suffered from some framing issues which make it an easy target for naysayers. The Future of Nonprofits sounds really great, based on the presentation the authors made at SXSWi. Looking forward to reviewing both!

Looking forward to your 4HWW review. I have a love/hate relationship with Tim Ferris. Tell me, have you looked over his 4 H Body?

What kind of guy do you think I am, Aimee?!? :)
