Andrew Berardini | N+1 | 14 January 2011

How to meet and greet. What to expect (free alcohol). How to converse. "If
  they ask you how you like the show, try to find something polite to say. If

Laura Vanderkam | City Journal | 17 January 2011

Book of the Day

[10]Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln
    Links:
      10. http://thebrowser.com/recommended/team-rivals-political-genius-abraham-lincoln-by-doris-kearns-goodwin

  ever read. You have to be a bit careful because with somebody like Lincoln
  there is such mass of material out there, but what Doris Kearns Goodwin has
  managed to do is to give it a freshness and a depth that is very rare –
  it’s an unputdownable historical account. And there are an awful lot of
  lessons in it for people in politics today.
