  1. Hey Ron,

    It's very funny and it works as a review. Who knew video was the future of book reviewing?

  2. Perhaps credit to David Pogue, whose weekly made-at-home videos for the New York Times have the same humorous, witty, made-at-home feel.

  3. Are you consciously ripping off Jenny Sawyer's 60second Recap thing (specifically, her 60-second book reviews)? Or is this just one of those "accidents" that will trigger paroxysms of remorse once you're confronted with the reality of how cheesy you are?
