I have read many political biographies in my 41 years, but few better. Chernow is able to walk that narrow, tricky trail b..." Read more of this review »

The House of Writers by M.J. Nicholls
-This is a book for book people.

The Rainbow Comes and Goes by Anderson Cooper
"5 Stars! This book will forever hold a special place in my heart! I initially purchased "The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love, and Loss" because years ago I learned that Anderson had lost his father when he was 10 years old a..." Read more of this review »

This book is heavy.

No, I mean literally HEAVY. I'd say it weighs about as much as a premature newborn. It must be the high-quality paper used for the pages.

I really like Amy Poehler, because she's so funny. She always makes me laugh, and this book ma

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Kurt Vonnegut
“How nice -- to feel nothing, and still get full credit for being alive.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson in His Journals
