Book review in today’s Observer

March 13th, 2006 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

There is a review in today’s Observer of a book called ‘iPod Therefore I Am’ by Dylan Jones.

I wrote about this myself in August last year when I read it in hardback. I have to say that I didn’t reckon much of it, but the Observer’s review is practically glowing. It might be worth bearing in mind that Dylan Jones is the editor of GQ magazine and I am pretty sure I have seen articles by him in the Observer before. We all know how incestuous the world of publishing can be so its worth bearing that in mind.

The Observer says:

…and the appendices at the back are invaluable (if rather geeky) potential playlists.

I suppose it all depends on whether you feel that 27 pages worth of the ‘100 best songs from the best jazz albums’ is invaluable or not.

By the end of the week I might have got round to moving August 2005 into proper WordPress format. Until then, if you are tempted by the book look here first. I’m not saying don’t buy it, just that the review today was suspiciously over-generous.
