Newspaper Boys Always Deliver Book Review & Giveaway


By on 3/09/2016 10:54:00 AM


As a little girl, we received our "news" a couple of times a day--usually at noon and 6 p.m. when the network news broadcasts aired. All of the important local events; however, were captured in our local newspaper--and it was always so exciting to participate in a "newsworthy" activity and see your name or photo in print! Today, my girls rarely look at a newspaper and "the news" is available at the touch of a finger. I just finished reading Newspaper Boys Always Deliver by Joseph Gulesserian--and I wanted to share my review of his book as he takes a look at the past 50 years (with a little look at the future) from a newspaper-formatted perspective.  

I received a complimentary copy of this book for use in my review. All opinions are my own. I am also pleased to join the iRead Book Tour giveaway for this book--so, please enter to win a book tour prize at the end of this post! 

Quick Summary of Newspaper Boys Always Deliver by Joseph Gulesserian. A Personal Journey into Pop and Technological change in the last Fifty Years. In Newspaper Boys Always Deliver, Gulesserian takes us on a captivating adventure by combining personal essays and historical insights for an enlightening look at how we got here, and the earlier inventions that paved the way for current cutting-edge technologies. While exploring pop-culture trends, unexpected impacts, and memorable moments in time, this collection of thought-provoking and humorous reflections paints a fascinating picture of the changes half a century can bring—and its implications for what could be just around the corner.

In just fifty years, Western culture has gone from culture to techno-culture—from the swinging sixties to rap, encyclopedia to Wikipedia, slide rule to artificial intelligence.

Newspaper Boys Always Deliver, shares a personal journey of how we got here, in a Book that delivers an eclectic plethora of knowledge, controversy and humorous entertainment in a newspaper format.

Newspaper Boys Always Deliver Takes a Unique Approach in Analyzing our Recent History. Gulesserian breaks down the past 50 years (and offers some future insights as well) in this book by utilizing the standard newspaper column headings. Readers will find topics such as Sports, Entertainment and Lifestyle leading from the 1960's toward the bulk of the book: the Business/Technology section and current times. The author does an amazing job weaving historical events and time-period activities with personal reflections and commentary through the topics of "newspaper"-like book. This book takes us from a time very different than the world so many of us know today--and guides us through toward the creation of our techno-centric, modern existence. 

Newspaper Boys Always Deliver is an enjoyable read for a variety of ages. The book contains a lot of historical information and event details--but, the memoir-like feel of the book and the aurthor's short, easy to read, essay style writings make the sections fun and quick to read. I think both children of the 60's and those of the 70's and 80's will enjoy the memories and the author's take on a variety of topics.

Would I recommend Newspaper Boys Always Deliver by Joseph Gulesserian? I enjoyed both the creative format of this book and its content. I love books that combine factual events with an author's personal experiences and perspectives. The author has a lot to share in this book and he does so in an easy to read story that is informative, entertaining and likely to please a variety of readers. It's a unique look at our lives before technology overtook our days--and at the rise of the tech "boom". Readers will even find an interesting Editorial/Commentary section at the book's end that offers up some points to ponder on our world's current state and its future possibilities. Whether you agree or disagree with the author's perspectives or lived a life of different experiences--this book offers readers a chance to reflect on where we have been, where we are now, and where we may be headed as a culture.
