Free for all: oddballs, geeks, and gangstas in the public library

It's been slow at the library these past two days. Everyone's out doing last-minute shopping, the kids are at home recovering from the last week of school, and nobody's got any nagging reference questions on their mind right now. So I finished this at work today. Good but not great. Well-written but not too insightful. If you're outside the library profession you might be tickled by some of his musings, but for those in the industry it's pretty run-of-the-mill stuff.
Wow. I just reread myself--I don't mean to be so tough on the poor guy. It's a quick read that was compelling enough to finish, with lots of cute anecdotes. Enjoy!
