"F this Test" looks at the very best of very wrong test answers. Across a full day's worth of classes, from English to the performing arts, Richard Benson has collected real answers from tests where students, faced with total blanks, took the lower road and went for the funny. Perhaps that's what the F stands for - funny? Because there are plenty of good laughs to be found in this short collection."

"The author's prose (translated from the German) is poetic and clever, descriptive and dramatic without falling prey to travelogue cliches. Engrossing as a novella, each entry comes complete with characters... Schalansky's anecdotes are so crisply detailed and evocative, one assumes that she conducted her research in person, even time-traveling to witness certain historical events...To be honest, she didn't really need to have visited the islands. By book's end (Peter I Island, Antarctica), I felt that I had traveled to all 50, my mind's wings tired from all that flapping."

"Austerity is an economic policy strategy, but is also an ideology and an approach to economic management freighted with politics. In this book Mark Blyth uncovers these successive strata. In doing so he wields his spade in a way that shows no patience for fools and foolishness."

"This is a clear and intelligent call for Americans to find the great value waiting in the many small cities across this land. At a time in history when everything has to get smaller, finer, and more local, these places occupy increasingly important geographic sites and need to be brought back to life. Catherine Tumber understands the dynamic completely and lays it out eloquently." -- James Howard Kunstler, author of the novels "The Long Emergency" and "World Made by Hand"
