What to read to read Deleuze
This book is well worth the time for anyone who cares about philosophy, who does film studies, or who simply wants to understand Deleuze. The opening introduction to Deleuze's film-philosophy is the best I've come across; the essays are superb (see, especially, those by Lambert, Marks, Canning, Martin, Alliez, and Conley); and the concluding interview with Deleuze is surprisingly lucid. This ought to be required reading.

"A Pious Bacchanal"--A Labor of Love
It would hardly be proper for me to write a true review of "A Pious Bacchanal," but perhaps a few personal words will suffice. As editor and widow of the author, Daniel Orth Bell, Ph.D., I was involved with every aspect of the book's creation, from title page to index. Daniel, myself and our daughter Katie lived and breathed the wonderful drawings of Mr. Beardsley and Mr. Flaxman for over a decade. In fact, at the age of five, the works of these fascinating, if eccentric, British geniuses were probably as familiar to Katie as the characters of "Sesame Street". But though the manuscript itself was nearly done, the tragic death of my husband at the age of 41 left many details incomplete. As a tribute to Daniel's indomitable spirit, I vowed to finish what he could not, and with Katie's help, the book went to press at last. Never before linked by any art historian, Flaxman and Beardsley are compared with skill and empathy. The health problems and deep spiritual questions these artists faced are examined in depth, and Beardsley scholars in particular will derive a plethora of new insights from "A Pious Bacchanal". In every sense of the phrase, this book was a labor of love, and it is my fondest hope that readers across the world will give it the acclaim it truly deserves. Thank you!

Lots Of Hype And Little Substance
When a book is entitled "Wheatgrass: Natures Finest Medicine" you expect the author to be enthusiastic about wheatgrass, but this book goes beyond enthusiasm and into cultishness. Other than a few tables of nutritional information, there is little factual information about wheatgrass. Nutrition isn't even discussed until the fifth chapter - after chapters extolling the great leaders of the wheatgrass movement and promoting the spiritual value of consuming wheatgrass, including comments about revitalizing your cosmic cell consciousness, and how Jesus (as recorded in secret gospels) encouraged his disciples to chew grass. Then there are the many true life stories of miraculous healings from cancer and spiritual awakenings obtained by eating wheatgrass, not to mention a lengthy promotion of various health and spiritual renewal sanctuaries and resorts. It may well be true that wheatgrass is a wonderful health food, but this book contains so much hype that even what substance there is becomes suspect.

Over the Top?
It's hard to know what to say about this book. It includes research abstracts and practical advice about incorporating wheat grass juice into your diet, but it comes close to attributing mystical properties to wheat grass, which seems to me to be a little over the top. If you are thinking of buying this book, it is probably because you or someone close to you has cancer or some other serious health problem. If you want to add wheat grass juice to a good nutrition plan and good medical care, this book will be helpful. If you are looking for a magic bullet or a miracle cure, this book might convince you that you've found it.

Wheat Grass: Sharing the news
Dear Steve, Thank you for writing this wonderfully informative and well researched book. The title is inspirational and the content educational. We were fascinated by the history section. My husband and I have both benefited so much from taking our precious "green gold" that we are committed to telling others about wheat grass and your book. We are sharing the information by loaning copies of your book to people who are part of our lives(we bought 40 copies). Your keen interest, knowledge and enthusiasm for the use of wheat grass to maintain health and prevent disease as well as it's therapeutic benefits is evident to the reader. Would you consider a sequel?
