    Story

    When journalist Alan Deutschman came to the California wine country as the lucky houseguest of very rich friends, he was surprised to discover a civil war was being fought between the Napa Valley and the neighboring Sonoma Valley. What develops is nothing less than a battle for the good life, a clash between old and new, the struggle for the soul of one of America's last bits of paradise.

    Overall

    This book is insufferable. I read (listened to) The House of Mondavi and was expecting something of the same caliber. How wrong I was. This book is nothing more than inane and simplistic ramblings against anyone with a Porsche, BMW, or Mercedes. How this guy every got published is a mystery.

    Lemuel Gulliver, a surgeon and sea captain, journeys to different islands, where he meets some of the strangest creatures ever to appear in literature. His most famous visits are to Lilliput, where he towers over the six-inch, warlike people, and Brobdingnag, where the natives are gigantic, yet cannot understand abstract concepts. Gulliver also travels to the flying island of Laputa, Lagadu, a land of impractical philosophers, and Glubdubdrib, where sorcerers allow him to speak to great historical figures.

    The epitome of political satire. Swift's indictment of politicians, lawyers and the clergy are as relevant today as when he wrote them 600 years ago. This book is much to good to be relegated to a childs book.
