Harry Chapin Greatest Stories Live Track by Track by Agent Palmer

Track by Track: Harry Chapin – Greatest Stories Live

I was very lucky to have parents with good taste in music, so when I tell you that I have revisited an album from my childhood that I still love to this day, it could be any number of genres, bands, or artists, but in this instance, it is Harry Chapin Greatest Stories Live.

Set Free Your Modern Warrior with Out of My Mind…and Intending to Stay There: A Battleplan for Life by Kurt Sussman

Out of My Mind...and Intending to Stay There: A Battleplan for Life

I don’t read many self-help books, but the distinctive factor that makes the difference between the ones I read and all the rest is that the few I have read, all come across as conversations. They all feel like a friend giving you some advice… And Out of My Mind…and Intending to Stay There: A Battleplan for Life by Kurt Sussman is one such example…

It is an easy read because it is conversational, but don’t assume it’s also a quick read, as it will make you think… In fact, that’s the goal… Truth be told, the synopsis is pretty much one of the better and most accurate synopses I have read, especially for a self-help book.

Morgawr The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara by Terry Brooks

Morgawr ends The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara Trilogy but The Four Lands Endures

Morgawr, the end of The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara Trilogy is my 10th Terry Brooks novel read in the saga and histories of The Four Lands the author created. It closed the door on this trilogy and yet, it hints that the world of The Four Lands moves on despite the book having ended, just like the end of The Sword of Shannara Trilogy and The Heritage of Shannara series.

An Authentic “Back Story: A Memoir” by David Mitchell

Back Story A Memoir by David Mitchell Book Review

You may or may not know David Mitchell from Peep Show, Would I Lie To You or one of his many other panel show appearances, or he may be someone you know absolutely nothing about, but neither knowing him nor not knowing him should deter you from reading his back story in his autobiography David Mitchell: Back Story: A Memoir.

What Mitchell has written is perhaps the most authentic and self-critical autobiography I have, and may ever, read. It’s refreshing in that way, because he’s not afraid to take the piss out of the industry he’s in or, most often, himself.
