  • John Seed - From Bad Boy to Good ManFischl's new book -- which mixes autobiography, art world anecdotes and aesthetic self-justifications -- is clearly written and well argued. He had good help with the project as he worked with a co-author (Michael Stone) and turned to friends, including comedian/writer Steve Martin, to give him feedback on the drafts in progress. The book has some very frank and revealing moments, including Fischl's descriptions of his mother's alcoholism and eventual suicide. In one stark anecdote Fischl describes how he tried to "reason with her" after the family faced a financial setback: "She'd rather be dead, my mother said, than face the sterility of suburban life without booze."

    As I made my way through Bad Boy, I was struck by the book's tone of sincerity, which brought up a question for me: just how heartfelt are Fischl's works?

    If you are going to find this book convincing, you will need to believe that Fischl really has been coming from a place of genuine emotion, as opposed to tweaking the public with images that were and are calculatedly sensational. Bad Boy argues for the former. Fischl goes to great lengths to explain that his early life was painful and disjointed, and that his career and oeuvre are about a personal quest for catharsis and wholeness.

  • The FONZ - THE WAIT IS OVER!!!After I got this 32GB Asus for my daughter(6 years by way), I'm blown away how awesome it look and how speedy the processor is. Upgrade to new firmware 4.0 on day one.....SWEET!!! My daughter approve it and loves her You Tube and her Mario games on it. I never could be happy with my purchase as I load TONS of games 2500 plus games that I have install that play Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Genesis and Playstaion games. *please don't ask how to get them as for legal reason* Simply amazing tablet and hands down for Asus! BTW.....I'm a Gamer. I WANT ONE NOW!!!.....I get me a 64GB and add a 32GB micro SD to expand it for more space. Whatever the people say here, they are entitle to their opinion. But I wonder if some people know how to use it to give it a low rating?...hmmm. I have no issue what so ever and barely scratch the surface on this. Took me awhile to get use to it but I got a feel of it now and how the 4.0 does wonders on it. I do admit, it does comes with flaw like any other issue with new things in the program but nothing major like any other manufacture out there hence Apple, Microsoft and Sony. I highly recommend this a buy than an iPad 3 any other day!!! I prefer my freedom to explore on the net and make my tablet that I want it to do in ways Apple won't let you then you have to go out of your way to jailbreak it to make it what you want with flaw and void your warranty. The choice is yours! ^_^
  • MissRed - Incredible.I have found this book to be very helpful. It's made me look at things differently and helped me get out there and meet more people and be a better version of the person I was. In one way I don't want to reccommend reading it because the content is so powerful that I don't really want others to have the knowledge that is in it but it is actually really worth purchasing! Money very well spent in my opinion.
  • Colorado folk listener - It's so convientBeing a computer savy person, I didn't know anything about tablets. However, after a few days working with it, I'm finding how many things it can do! The PC at home is always in use so this is so perfect for me. Being able to get to my accounts and my email is wonderful. It't going everywhere with me even on vacation.
  • M. Wang - Good coverage of study material, with detailed subject reviewsAny of these exam preparation books would contain practice tests and various tips. What separates them is the reviews of the test subject matters.

    This one is excellent. Each major subject gets its own chapter. My son's weakness is in Geometry, so we go over that chapter together, and I really like how well the material is organized. If you are getting just one book for the SAT, this is the one to buy.
