    Book Reviews

    I've taken my book reviews on the road, turning them into the video variety, keeping them brief but relevant. I decided for the first one to revisit The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This fable is probably better suited to younger folks, but it's still a fantastic and exciting tale. Here's my review, taped in Aruba.

    I just finished reading The Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. What a disappointment. The guy can really write. Brilliant. But the book goes nowhere, ever, and ends in a colossal dud of a scene. This 1938 NYC portrayal could have been awesome. What a shame! Here's my video review:

    Bon dia.
