Good morning campbellsworld visitors and faithful followers everywhere!
This morning in the Author’s Corner David L. Faucheux has returned with yet another wonderful review.
This is a tad bit different from what we’re used to. So, without further ado, I give you David and his most excellent review.
Oh! Wait, before I get too carried away and forget, please do keep reading after his review so you can learn how to pick up his wonderful book.
If you think reviews by him shared here are something, you just really must see the book.
For now, here’s David!
I had long planned to give mention to one of the magazines I interact with on a regular basis. It was this issue of Wired that finally got me in gear.
This issue has interesting articles on artificial intelligence, free energy, and even a holiday gift section. Yes, a gift section. Visit http://www.wired.com/wishlist2018 to find interesting, even unusual items for that hard to buy for someone. I found an interesting puzzle, a moving sculpture, postcards with an astronomical theme, speakers, sneakers, a car, a lomographic camera, a Petronics mouse for the smart cat, and more.
Patty back to say…
Did I not tell you that was different? Not only does the man write most awesome reviews, but he refers us to places to help finish our holiday shopping.
Does it get better than that?
I’d have to say yes. Want to know why? Keep reading and find out.
One more thing before I go. Please, if you would, help me tell others all about David and his totally talented work.
ABOUT DAVID AND HIS BOOK…

What the book is about:
Friends and family. Restaurants and recipes. Hobbies and history. TV programs the author loved when he could still see and music he enjoys. The schools he attended and the two university degrees he attained. The career that eluded him and the physical problems that challenge him. And books, books, books: over 230 of them quoted from or reviewed. All in all, an astonishing work of erudition and remembrance.

May 2018: The author Peter Altschul sent the following comments to Leonore Dvorkin. He granted his kind permission to reproduce them here.
“I just finished David Faucheux’s Across Two Novembers. I enjoyed its quirkiness as it wound through a variety of topics, not least the intersection between blindness, chronic illness, food, and the Louisiana zeitgeist. I also enjoyed the editor’s notes.”
— Peter Altschul, author of the following two books:
1. Breaking Barriers: Working and Loving While Blind
2. Breaking It Down and Connecting the Dots: Creating Common Ground Where Contention Rules
