bookshelves: to-read

I've heard some interesting interviews with Barber about rampant consumerism and marketing which made me really want to read the book. But shortly after starting it a few months ago, I set it aside, not really liking the style.

Still, his pre-Thanksgiving Day interview with Bill Moyers is good stuff,worth watching.

And I'll pick up his book again shortly no doubt.

Qa'id You're right - that is a great interview with Bill Moyers. I've heard Barber on NPR and it caught my ear for the same reasons this interview retains my interest.

I hope the book can be as insightful, though it seems to be written in an un-engaging style (based on others' reviews).
