The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. It could be measured in national poetry slam competitions. But I believe the poet is only as good as his words, and there is no better showcase for the words of Taylor Mali than this incredible collection of live performances. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry. By Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, from the liner notes.

Includes I Could Be a Poet, Voice of America, What Teachers Make, Falling In Love is Like Owning a Dog, Labeling Keys, Playing Scrabble with Eddie, Religious Sex, What My Father Said of Sex, Running a Race, I Nail My Palms, How to Write a Political Poem, Coming Out Duet, The Soul Bass, The Half Tail of Winchester, Totally Like Whatever, Time and Tears Enough, Seventh-Grade Viking Warrior, Running a Race, and Silver Lined Heart.

    " Other than the fact that I'm commited at this point, I'm really not sure why I'm keeping up with this series even if in audio format. "

    " Good book, but I'm finding that the story with Abeloth is just dragging and boring now. The Other story with the Jedi Council and the politics that are facing is very interesting. "

    " Crap went down in this book! Onto the next one! :) "

    " I don't really know what to think of this Fate of the Jedi series. It seems to be dragging on so long and kind of recycling the same storyline over and over. It was okay for the first couple books, but now I'm starting to wonder if there can possibly be a pay off. Maybe I've been reading too many "gritty" fantasy books lately--I know this isn't Star Wars style--but I feel like Lucas needs to bite the bullet and let some big characters die. Maybe it'll come in the grand finale, but I'm growing a little tired of the good guys coming out relatively unscathed all the time. Allston is a good writer, the limitations given him by Lucas notwithstanding. "
