Interesting People

What makes a person interesting?  Is it enough to
be famous?  To be important?  To have changed the

For many years, I have written essays for "Harley
Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages" and in that time, I
have explored the lives of a great many people:
historical figures, scientists, philosophers,
musicians, athletes and entertainers.

It seems to be that we have a lot to learn from
studying such people and, to make it easy to do so,
I have created a special Web site where you can
read some of my essays.

When you visit the Web site, the first six people
you will meet are:

- Martha Stewart
- Mohandas Gandhi
- Ralph Nader
- Karl Marx
- Martin Luther King
- Adolph Hitler

Reading: Three books by Ruth Reichl

Ruth Reichl, one of the most well-known American
food writers, is the author of three
autobiographical books:

- Tender at the Bone (1998)
- Comfort Me With Apples (2001)
- Garlic and Sapphires (2005)

Generally speaking, Reichl's books are poorly
written and not worth reading.  Still, I suggest
that you may want to read them anyway.

Why do I say this?  Take a look at...
