81 CRIST, CLIFFORD (EDITOR). Playboy's Book Of Limericks.
Playboy Press, Chicago: 1972. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Dustjacket is stained at the bottom. 
A book to be read in utter privacy, with the partner of your choice (Limericks are notoriously aphrodisiacal), or with a bunch of your friends. According to the publisher, out of the 653 limericks in this volume, the following is the least outrageous: Said a pretty young student from Smith, Whose virtue was largely a myth, "Try hard as I can, I can't find a man, Whom it's fun to be virtuous with."

82 CROUSE, TIMOTHY. The Boys On The Bus.
Ballantine Books, New York: 1977. 0345270983 / 9780345270986 Fifth Printing. s Softcover. Good condition. 
Political spin-doctoring has become something of an art form in the last few decades. It was less artful in the early years of the information age, and Crouse's entertaining look at the attempts of both the Nixon and McGovern '72 campaign staffs to control the media seems almost comical, so poor were they at the image-and-sound bite manipulation that now defines our politics. Crouse is a serious-minded journalist, however, and his firsthand report on how political news is made and shaped remains important reading. Includes an Index.
