New York Daily News picks overrated books of 2011
The New York Daily News and their recently launched book blog called Page Views has added to the deluge of literary year end lists. However theirs is scathing, if not a little pompous, and I like that.
They chose The Submission by Amy Waldman, You Deserve Nothing by Alexander Maksik, That Is All by John Hodgman, That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back by Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum, and last but not least Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson as the five most overrated books of the year.
Also if you are interested in something less snide (I’m certainly not), they have also chosen their picks for the best books of 2011
