Let Me Tell You How I Really Feel: The Uncensored Book Reviews of Classic Images' Laura Wagner, 2001-2010 Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Based upon the number of reviews that Ms. Wagner has cranked out over the years, this book is a real gem as I am getting to enjoy long-forgotten criticisms for a second time. I also got a real kick out of her fan mail (aka hate mail)that was included in this book. Not surprisingly, her readership(mostly authors) often take objection to her reviews. While I clearly sympathize with their rants, it would be nice if these people would take her comments to heart because she is invariably 100% on target.
I use Wagner's reviews in determining what I will read except for those times when I am so desperate to get any information on a subject that I will throw caution to the wind. However, I usually acknowledge that she is right.
Wagner's a skilled writer and can make a review of even the lousiest book interesting. This collection was well worth the wait and I'll be looking forward to subsequent editions in the future. I'd also like to see a volume of her celebrity profiles.
Most of the books in "Let Me Tell You How I Really Feel" are from the smaller presses. Releases from the larger publishing houses are by no means overlooked here, they get the same scrutiny, and, surprisingly, can be as error-filled and fantasy-ridden as those from the small press. Wagner intimately knows her subject, and is a champion for maintaining integrity in books related to the film/music industry. According to Wagner, all books should serve as a reliable reference for those doing research.
Wagner gets her point across with bite and humor. Be prepared for a lot of laughs. I wish her book had been much longer. If a second edition comes out, it would be a real perk to see photos to supplement the text. I'm sure Wagner has a great selection of photographs that would carry her message home.
