This is an anthology of articles from the "New Yorker"
magazine. For a number of years I read this weekly
magazine, practically cover-to-cover. But I no
longer do. I had read none of the articles in this book.
The writing throughout is in the high standard of this
magazine. However, most of it is out-of-date. The
articles are all loosely connected to themes of wealth,
economy, or even non-wealth. But since the latest article
is dated April 2000, nothing relates to the recession that
we still feel. So m
Profiles, trend pieces, and slices of life from the boom years of the late 1990s. It was probably more interesting to read this book now than it would've been when it came out - it freezes in time the internet boom and the country's pre-September 11 giddiness.

Read this book. It is smart, interesting, and . . . ironic.
