You write about yourself After all this is the Facebook Era enough about you let's talk about me Essentially that's Benjamin Anastas' approach except that he manages to secure the benefit of a mainstream publisher rather than Facebook as his literary forum Granted Anastas' prose is usually much better than what one finds in amateur online postings and he manages to edit his story far astutely than do most contributors to social networking websites But what he gives us in Too Good to Be True is a mercifully short 175 page boo
