Reader reviews… keep ’em coming
One of the things I like most as an author is the reader review. These are from people who read my book and take the time to write up their thoughts. (Yes, I like reviews from book reviewers, too.)
A WordPress blogger — My Green Misadventure — recently wrote one such review. An excerpt:
Gold’s book is a breezy, not overly technical, account of how an obscure process to extend the life of oil and gas wells turned out to fundamentally alter the conversation about energy in America. Given how dependent our lifestyle and economy is on hydrocarbons sucked from the ground there can be few stories more central to the history of modern America.
What I like most about the review is that the blogger writes from such a personal, but universal perspective. The blog’s subtitle is “Two steps forward, one step back on the path to a greener life.” This is honest environmentalism. He is a suburbanite trying to figure out how to live a greener life. Isn’t that what so many of us are doing? We’re trying to understand more, to ask questions and live our lives in a respectful way.
Thanks for taking the time to read my book. I’m glad you liked it.
To everyone else. Keep ’em coming — and send me links to your blogs. I’ll read them and try to post links to them.
