Not sure this book completely lives up to its subtitled hype . . . Interesting, but I'm not totally down for 280 pages of "can do!" attitude without a bit of irony. And Laties prose can be a bit overblown and annoying at time . . . Still, it's an interesting perspective on indie bookselling, and if it inspires someone to start a store, or buy books from an indie store, well, then, that's fantastic.

(Also weird that Laties is from Rochester. Not that you'd recognize the city from his description in the book in which this town is an indie store mecca with three separate bookstores, including one dedicated to children's titles. Now, we have nothing but a few sterile B&N stores.)
