We can all rest now, a very popular cereal has finally made it possible for us to eat together because as you know, this was a problem before their ingenuity kicked in.
I admit, I like to read stuff while I eat and okay, do other stuff. Newspapers and magazines (and now online media) is great but I also enjoy reading the boxes that products come in. i.e., food, soap, toothpaste whatever. This is where the real marketing gems can be found and how these products are not just effective, but actually are changing the world, one family at a time.

Over the Edge of the World: book review by Mike.
Buy Over the Edge of the World: Magellan’s Terrifying Circumnavigation of the Globe
Over The Edge of The World Recommendation:
To all lovers of historical literature I highly recommend Laurence Bergreen’s “Over the Edge of the World”.

However, the detail Bergreen goes into regarding the geopolitical landscape of the time and the events leading up to Magellan’s voyage is impressive and may not be known to the casual reader of historical works. “Over the Edge of the World” employs impeccable research and a variety of little known first-hand accounts to weave a story that rivals any popular novel.
