Book Review: Why We Don’t Suck by Denis Leary

Why We Don’t Suck: And How All Of Us Need To Stop Being Such Partisan Little Bitches by Dr. Denis Leary is a scathing and hilarious look at the hypocrisy and insanity of both the Democratic and Republican parties. It also takes a hard look at the de-evolution of modern pop culture and the current American mindset. Put simply, we’ve all lost our minds.

It doesn’t matter who you are, (Republican, Democrat, old, young) if you don’t find something funny in this book, you have no sense of humor.

Book Review: Chasing Phil by David Howard

Chasing Phil: The Adventures of Two Undercover Agents With the World’s Most Charming Con Man by David Howard is a stylish true crime story, told in a way that keeps the pages turning. Set in the 1970s with legendary characters, Howard gets to the heart of the story using a little artistic license for added flavor. With entertaining dialogue and intriguing¬† actors, I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a true crime book.

Game Review: Come As You Aren’t

Breaking all the rules here with this brand new November, 2017 release from Penguin Random House that is not a book, it’s a game, and a game for adults at that.

Come As You Aren’t is a simple concept that works like this, pick some random cards, put them together, create a scenario and set a date/time to act them out. Lots of possibilities, but beware, it could get a little weird.

Very affordably priced. The perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for the adult in your life.

Book Review: The Comic Book Story Of Video Games

The Comic Book Story of Video Games by Jonathan Hennessey  (art by Jack McGowan) explores the history of video games in super cool graphic novel style. Covering everything from the earliest conception of electronic gaming to playing games on our smart phones, this is a fun and informative, easy to read history lesson.

Making this information available in graphic novel form is a truly great idea and it is hard to believe somebody didn’t come up with it sooner.¬† Well done and recommended.
