Reservations Recommended is a satire of the critical mind; a dark commentary on contemporary culture; a story of midlife crisis; a morality play; and a book that matches bleakness against humor, seasoned throughout with B. W. Beath’s hilariously acid reviews. We watch as Matthew Barber descends from a self-protective superiority into a species of madness, and into the dark night of the soul. “A brilliant satire.” LA Life “A merciless sendup of contemporary American pretensions.’ Janice Harayda, Cleveland Plain Dealer “Wonderfully readable . . . touching and intelligent.” Richard Gehr, The Village Voice< Less

More > trucks, the contractor trucks, the carpet cleaners, window installers, etc. No matter what happens, people always need those basic services. I looked around for an indepth vocational-trades book. I couldn’t find one. Here is my attempt at a good comprehensive vocational trades book.

The term vocational conjures up an image of some semi-stupid, unkempt kind of guy who was too dumb to go to college (at least it did when I went to school) which is why I notice that it’s being phased out in favor of the terms career education and technical education.< Less

A lot of colleges offer career programs that don’t lead to a degree but rather a certificate for the vocational field.
