Into the Wild
Into the Wild
von Jon Krakauer
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,00

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating, 30. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
Chris McCandless was admirable in a lot of ways--he had the cajones to do what many people dream of but few people do. He did not die because he was ill-prepared (don't forget he managed to live for 3 months+), he died because he lived the way he wanted and took the risks he needed to take. I'm glad our society can still produce people like him, and not just Backstreet Boys fans . The only fault I find with him is the worry he put him family through.
"Into The Wild" is well done, unfortunately even at 200 pages it seems padded. The author adds chapters on other wayward dreamers, which were interesting, and his own youth, which was not. The book is worth reading, but there just isn't much to it.


Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times
Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times
von Thomas Hauser

Preis: EUR 13,27

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Greatest, 6. Februar 2000
Excellent Ali biography. With very little narrative by the author, it is mostly a collection of interviews by those in Ali's life from the beginning to the end of his career-- his parents, his trainers, his friends, his enemies, his opponents, his aquaintances.

von Robert B. Reich

5.0 von 5 Sternen FUN FOR EVERYONE, 31. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Locked in the Cabinet (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm generally conservative so I disagreed with 95% of Reich's policies, but he's funny with a lively style. Liberals should eat it up, but so should anybody with an open mind. Like George Snuffleupagus' book, he blames most of Clinton's political problem on Dick Morris.
