Stephen Tyler's biography. Much like his personality, it's all over the place. He's not so burnt out that he cannot recall details (he's actually very good at this) but he's all over the road.
I'm now up to the point he and Aerosmith are making their first album. I'm hoping it becomes more focused............

Tough Shit: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good by Kevin Smith

Finished the first 100 pages or so. Very hot and cold. When he is on, it is laugh out loud funny but then he starts to ramble on about nothing and I lose interest. The chapter about his run in with Bruce Willis on the set of Cop Out and great.

Just finished "Spaceman: The Bill Lee Story", one of the better '70's era baseball exposes. Lee is an interesting character to say the least.

Now I'm reading "A Season on the Brink" by John Feinstein. Very good read. Bobby Knight is a very complex character.

Just started "Red Badge of Courage", never read it before but wanted to for many years.

And I'm halfway through "The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America" which has a lot of interesting stories in it involving everyone from Bill James to The Velvet Underground, but it's a little rambling and not the best written book.

The Red Badge of Courage is a great book. 

Are the schematics for Libertarian Land included in the other book?

There's a map to it, but it's just an arrow pointing up.

I think that's just the subtitle to Rossi's Libertarian book.

How is the book in regards to how it is written?  Same stuff from his show or more indepth?  I love how he gives hell to both parties.

More in depth but still not "superly deep" if that makes any sense.  It's not scholarly but still well thought out.  Definitely passionate.  It's decent and worth reading IMO.

Currently reading a thriller called Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott. Excellent book so far. The latest twist fooled me. A bad ending would ruin the book though.

Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughn

Started this comic series a few nights ago and ran through the first 6 issues. Good stuff.

For some unknown reason, every man in the world, except 1, simultaneously died. The women have started some Lord of the Flies shit with a group of "Amazons" cutting off one of their tits and causing much mayhem. The story so far has the lone surviving male finding his mother, a senator, and the new "President of the United States" who was formerly the Secretary of Agriculture. Word of the surviving male has made it to the Amazons. The male survivor's sister has joined the Amazons and has been given the job of finding the male survivor and bringing him to the Amazon leader.
