Mini Reviews

The ICFL offers some pleasant listening….

Playing for Pizza is a catchy title, especially with someone like me, a pizzaholic.  I just finished listening to John Grisham’s book and thoroughly enjoyed it.  For anyone who wants a pleasant story, combined with loving descriptions of Italian food and various fabulous locales, this is it.  Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for my waistline) there were no pizza recipes, but check out this story of a down on his luck former NFL player and the Italian team he quarterbacks.

And some food for thought, such as John Zogby’s The Way We’ll Be. From his introduction of “the first globals” tag for our eighteen to twenty-nine year olds, Zogby is looking at nothing less than what he calls a “transformation” of the American Dream. He discusses the four “meta-movements” that he sees in his polling; from recognizing limits and being inner directed to demanding authenticity and being open to diversity, things are changing.
