    And I hated Ginsberg's overly accentuated reading. It's a short book but I simply could not get through it. Beware!

    Is there a method to our madness when it comes to shopping? Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a Sherlock Holmes for retailers," author and research company CEO Paco Underhill answers with a definitive "yes" in this witty, eye-opening report on our ever-evolving consumer culture.

    Jon says: "Very valuable information for very little money"
    "strictly for retailers"
    Overall

    i was hoping that this would be a book that outlines some principles of business, advertising, and selling. instead, all it contains is a bunch of anecdotes and small hints on how to improve retail sales.
    being in the internet retail business, i found this info to be irrelevant.

    Sean G. says: "I LOVED it! I'm also a Type-Z!"
    "funniest motivational book i've ever read"
    Overall

    i've read many motivational books, and most of them talk about the same concepts: time management, goal setting, win-win situations.
    marc allen talks about the same concepts but with a very different tone. right off the bat, he confesses to be a lazy man. he talks through the process by which he had become rich, in spite of his laziness, forgetfulness, and disorganization. he has distilled all the self improvement techniques down to the bare essentials. this was the only way he could make himself follow it, and it is probably the only motivational book that will work out for lazy people.
    so, if you are lazy but still want to get rich, this may be the perfect book for you.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "This is what storytelling is all about"
    Overall

    The whole point of this book is not the beginning, nor the end, but the journey through the story itself: you get enough insight into Pi's character to believe his emotions and motivations, and the story moves right along across the Pacific.
    If anyone gave you a summary of the book you would think it sounds ridiculous: an Indian boy drifts across the Pacific with a Tiger. However, once you start reading, you are ready to suspend any disbelief in the plausibility of that concept. Simply amazing.
