    From Stuart Smalley come calming visualizations that will take you to a safe and healing place...except for a few wrong turns along the way. Al Franken brought Stuart Smalley to prominence on Saturday Night Live, and although Stuart's not perfect (and that's okay), he offers a healing journey through the Dysfunctional Forest and other guided visualizations.

    "not funny"

  • The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the 21st Century

    Story

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    Patrick says: "Facinating, Scary and Repetitive"
    "bubble wrap"
    Overall

    this book reminds me of bubble wrap. lots of air, little substance.
    the facts are not too new for you if you have been reading anything beyond the sports pages and there are some rather silly claims, for example the author seems to think that the internet was instrumental in bringing down the berlin wall because it gave east germans access to information from the west ... which is stretching it a bit if you consider the east german information technology in the late 80s and the fact that they had access to west german television for decades...!
    the narrator overdoes his effort to present the information as new and exciting, it comes out like a children's book of miracles.
