Richard Black


I live in Great Britain and I'm an avid reader. Sometimes I'm fascinated with sensational style journalism and the 24 hour news cycles on cable TV. I'm left amazed by how tabloid reporters and cable Networks choose to chronicle the times of our lives. I own a typewriter but it might as well be for decoration. I prefer using computers as they are a lot more user friendly. Among my other possessions are a shelf full of books, an e-reader and a fruit blender.

  • Eat A Banker on Aug. 30, 2012

    This is masterpiece in its own way. "Eat a Banker" made me laugh but besides the laughs, it painted a picture of what the world could be reduced to by greedy and irresponsible bankers and the institutions they work for. Since the banking crisis of 2008, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the world has failed to stabilise. I loved this book.
