    Story
    (21)

    Few of us realize how many states of consciousness we pass through on a regular basis. In this entertaining guide, Jeff Warren explores 12 distinct, natural states we can experience in a 24-hour day, each offering its own kind of knowledge, insight, and adventure.

    Donald says: "Reader apparently had somewhere to be"

    Overall

    I found some of the content interesting, but found Warren's drawn out personal accounts boring, and a little self-satisfied in tone. Though supported by research, none of the ideas sparked my desire to learn more, and his formulaic use of simile as an attempt at vivid description made me weary. Warren seemed to enjoy his book, but I didn't so much.

  • Assassination Vacation

    Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other, a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage.

    Rachel says: "extremely entertaining and informative"
    "Things I Should have Learned in History Class"
    Overall

    Thank you, Sarah Vowell, for being the history teacher I never had. Vowell offers witty, engaging and critical accounts of American history as she reveals her quirky yet endearing affection for our founding fathers and texts. Funny, informative and provocative, I like a women who loves our country while at the same time recognizes its faults, and of course, someone who deeply respects Lincoln, but can admit that J. Wilkes Booth was kind of hot. Post-modern history is here!
