Book Review
This is one of a series of reports on professional education issues by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Accordingly, it is written for a target audience  (educators, scholars, law school and university administrators and faculty). rather than the general public. It is well researched and overall quite readable. Legal Education has undergone a tremendous shift in the past two decades, and this book is an important contributed to the dialogue about teaching and learning  the law.

The sequel to "Tarzan of the Apes" follows our hero on his journey through civilization and back to Africa. It is a story of self discovery as well as a debate of who has the more savage nature - civilized people, tribal natives, or primitive apes?

This collection of stories is Sedaris at his best. His caustic wit and self-deprecating style make him both entertaining and relatable. You can't help but root for him.

If you like stories about underdogs, read Seabisbuit. A tiny horse with crooked legs and a jockey who was half blind made the impossible possible. This is a charming story about Depression-era America and overcoming the odds.

This was a page turner if I ever read one. It was really hard to put down. The book keeps you guessing throughout, with a game-changing plot twist about halfway through. Highly recommended for fun summer reading!
