It Book Review:

That mysterious characteristic "It"--"the easily perceived but hard-to-define quality possessed by abnormally interesting people"--Roach traces the origins of "It" back to the period following the Restoration, persuasively linking the sex appeal of today's celebrity figures with the attraction of those who lived centuries before. The book includes guest appearances by King Charles II, Samuel Pepys, Flo Ziegfeld, Johnny Depp, Elinor Glyn, Clara Bow, the Second Duke of Buckingham, John Dryden, Michael Jackson, and Lady Diana, among others.--Publisher's description.

Playing it Queer Book Review:

Popular music has always been a dynamic mediator of gender and sexuality, and a productive site of rebellion, oddity and queerness. The transformative capacity of music-making, performance and consumption helps us to make sense of identity and allows us to glimpse otherworldliness, arousing the political imagination. With an activist voice that is impassioned yet adherent to scholarly rigour, "Playing it Queer" provides an original and compelling ethnographic account of the relationship between popular music, queer self-fashioning and (sub)cultural world-making. This book begins with a comprehensive survey and critical evaluation of relevant literatures on queer identity and political debates as well as popular music, identity and (sub)cultural style. Contextualised within a detailed history of queer sensibilities and creative practices, including camp, drag, genderfuck, queercore, feminist music and club cultures, the author's rich empirical studies of local performers and translocal scenes intimately capture the meaning and value of popular musics and (sub)cultural style in everyday queer lives.

Bad Leadership Book Review:

A provocative departure from conventional thinking, Bad Leadership compels us to see leadership in its entirety Kellerman argues that the dark side of leadership-;from rigidity and callousness to corruption and cruelty-;is not an aberration. Rather bad leadership is as ubiquitous as it is insidious-;and so must be more carefully examined and better understood. Drawing on high-profile contemporary examples-;from Mary Meeker to David Koresh, Bill Clinton to Radovan Karadzic, Al Dunlap to Leona Helmsley-;Kellerman explores seven primary types of bad leadership and dissects why and how leaders cross the line from good to bad. The book also illuminates the critical role of followers, revealing how they collaborate in, and sometimes even cause, bad leadership. Daring and counterintuitive, Bad Leadership makes clear that we need to face the dark side in order to become better leaders and followers ourselves.

And Libby, the girl who tries to keep her intellectual bent a secret, afraid no one will like "a smart girl". And the rich kid, who finds out his money will buy neither real friendship or loyalty. Yet, for all their travails, these kids come to understand their own inner difficulties and how, truly they are all the same, searching both to understand and accept themselves, as they strive to make it through four years of high school. At the heart of Makin' It are a number of monologues in which characters step out of the action to address their thoughts to the audience
