The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest:: A Novel
The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest:: A Novel
von Po Bronson
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fine bit of storyteling, 11. Juni 2000
I feel that in this book, Bronson has humanized Silicon Valley to an extent. The main characters in this book are actually fleshed out characters and not stereotyped uber-geeks.
Some of the other reviewers said that the book glosses over the technical aspects of computers too much. I disagree. I don't think Bronson dumbed down the computer explanations as much as summarized them in normal language. Having a lot of technical info in this book would detract from the main thing, which is the story.
All in all, Bronson has written a fine book. The book has lots of twists and turns and is a page turned until the end.


Pimp
Pimp
von Iceberg Slim
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book tries to discourage pimping, not encourage it, 29. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pimp (Taschenbuch)
Reading some of the other reviews, you would think that this book is some sort of pimping manual. While Slim does go into the specifics of how he was pimping, this is done to show what distasteful work it was and why he left that life. That being said, this is one of the best books I have ever read. It is fast paced and the way Iceberg writes, you almost feel as if you are there, with him on the corner, in the bar. I finished this in 2 days, and I'm a pretty slow reader, so that should tell you something.


Rock This!
Rock This!
von Chris Rock
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Vintage Rock, 1. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rock This! (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is a great book. It brings together material heard on all 3 of his CDs. Unlike other comedy performers, Rock's act holds up very well in paper form. Definitely read this one.


Ranting Again
Ranting Again
von Dennis Miller
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 9,52

3.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, but unsatisfying, 1. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ranting Again (Taschenbuch)
After reading "Rants", I thought that this book would be even better. Not true. While this is a worthwhile read, I would suggest reading "Rants" first. In this book, he uses a lot of the same jokes in different rants and they're just not as funny as the ones from the previous book.

Rants

4.0 von 5 Sternen Funny stuff, 24. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rants (Taschenbuch)
I really didn't have much exposure to Dennis Miller aside from SNL before I read this. I thought that most of it was hilarious, but a few of the bits could have been improved or substituted with better material. Still, I would recommend this book.


Why Not Me?: The Inside Story: The Inside Story Behind the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency
Why Not Me?: The Inside Story: The Inside Story Behind the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency
von Al Franken
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 18,31

5.0 von 5 Sternen Laugh out loud funny, 24. Dezember 1999
I didn't think that Franken could top his last one, but he did. The Campaign Diary had me rolling, and the Bob Woodward "book" was also hilarious. One of the best political satires I have ever read.


The Organ Grinders
The Organ Grinders
von Bill Fitzhugh
  Gebundene Ausgabe

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not his best work, 22. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Organ Grinders (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book was not even half the book that Pest Control was. The hero is whiny, the villain is a crazy kook and all the supporting characters come off as creepy instead of humorous. I will treat this book as an aberration and look forward to Mr. Fitzhugh's next book.


Pest Control
Pest Control
von Bill Fitzhugh
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book now, 14. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pest Control (Taschenbuch)
This book's cover is what caught my attention and I thought that the synopsis on the back was funny. After I started reading, I could not put it down. Fitzhugh created characters who are off-kilter but that the reader can also identify with. He is like a funnier version of Elmore Leonard.


Swag: The Early Life and Crimes of Ernest Stickley
Swag: The Early Life and Crimes of Ernest Stickley
von Elmore Leonard
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of Leonard's best books, 26. November 1999
This was one of Leonard's best books that I have read. The relationship between Stick and Frank played out like a twisted version of the Odd Couple. I though the character development and plot were also exceptional. Definitely read this one.
