A passion for libraries and for all genres of knowledge is celebrated by Marilyn Johnson, who explores the lives of librarians as champions of confidentiality rights and harbingers of boundless curiosity, among other things. The need for librarians to help navigate the Information Age's limitless portals and the mazes beyond them is more vital than ever. Hillary Huber narrates the often-hilarious revelations about libraries, librarians, and readers with lively humor. Reporting on the more than 450 librarian blogs to the virtual world of librarian avatars, Second Life, THIS BOOK never ceases to dazzle. Daily struggles—of burgeoning collection automation, issues of open access and literacy, and fierce defense of the Constitution—have resulted in a hip generation of visionary, increasingly activist librarians. Everyone should listen to this book—especially when votes on the fates of libraries hang in the balance all over. A.W.
