Schulz and Peanuts CD: A Biography
The audio version of the newest book on Charles Schulz is very compelling to listen to. With the latest wave of controversy of this book from the likes of the New York Times that trickled down to the blog-sphere. I am still a firm believer in body language and when you listen to David Michaelis and see him in the above clip you can see he is enamored by his subject and his conviction for Charles Schulz. If this book is a can of worms, let it be because I can tell you of many people in the spotlight today who have a worse demeanor than him. Good grief, all this talk about Charles and his doom and gloom character fault, tell me we don’t have that in all of us. That is what made Peanuts a household strip, we all related to it, there was a piece of it in it for all of us. Every child can relate to all the characters in Peanuts and we still resonate the effects of that childhood even today. I welcome this biography it’s a self examination of all of us because we grew up with Charlie Brown and remember Lucy with "The psychiatrist is in" routine, consider Charles and yourself sitting on that stool and give her your nickel or should I say several nickels after you buy and read the book from David Michaelis.
