Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There
Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There
by David Brooks
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.00

3.0 out of 5 stars No Garden of Eden, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think the case has been made for the Bobo as the finished article, more a transitional species undergoing evolution by constant re-invention but more out of boredom than from necessity of form, surviving mostly on his entertainment value.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Treadmill of Progress, 21 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very wide-ranging it leaves no stone unturned. In keeping with its subject matter, a salmagundi of a documentary with a fitting conclusion.

Victorian Babylon: People, Streets and Images in Nineteenth-Century London

Edition: Paperback
Price: 20.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Space Control, 21 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Curiously detached from its subject matter, the human race, in its treatment of the opposition of the individual's hidden desires (represented by dark, confined spaces) and the need for rewarding social interaction (represented by light, open spaces) in the context of the most self-conscious city of the nascent technological age.
