A worthwhile examination of how "gurus" develop, why people follow gurus, and what makes them tick.
At first I felt like she wasn't explaining anxiety and/or panic attacks clearly enough, but then I realized S.B. wasn't trying to write a scientific examination on anything. She was trying to discuss her nervous breakdown(s) and recoveries in a way that makes people laugh. And it worked. She's a funny chick.
Even if the Paranormal Activities are the same movie over and over again, they still scare the bajeezes out of me.
The current Batman movie franchise borrowed heavily from the storyline and artwork in The Long Halloween. Christopher Nolan gives an interview at the start of the book explaining what elements of the book inspired him and what ideas he borrowed. If you enjoyed Batman Begins and/or The Dark Knight you would enjoy taking a look at this. Many lines in the movie script are plucked directly from The Long Halloween and the characterizations of the villains are spot on from the book. Even if this hadn't been a major influence on the new Batman Trilogy, this is a fun, mysterious Batman adventure with rad artwork from the Loeb/Sale team.
This is a fascinating book that everyone should read.
