I've been thinking about this for a while; however I believe it's the most relevant as of recent. Above Top Secret is now considered a 'Champion of
Literacy' promoting literacy to the youth across the world.
Wouldn't it make sense to have an Above Top Secret Book Review Forum?
I'm confident that many of the members of ATS are well read individuals. We've completed some of the most philosophical, religious, political, and
scientific books ever published. So why not inform other members about them?
The forum could be structured something along these lines:
At the bottom of General Forums
could be a forum labeled Book Reviews
In order to post a book review, members need to obtain a title much like the Research Forum, Debate Forum, and the Collaborative Fiction.
The title could be something like:
This title would of course be placed under the name of the individual who post the book review.
Each book review would be under a specific section, something like:
Mind Over Matter
...etc (to just name a few)
The sections could be subdivided in order to further categorize their topics.
Once a member has found the proper section to place the book review in, they would need to:
1.) Upload a small image of the book (which can easily be obtained off the numerous book websites such as amazon.com and www.bn.com).
2.) Give the Title of the book:
The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power
3.) The name of the Author:
4.) A short description of the book (which could be directly from the publisher):
As incisive as Eric Schlosser's bestselling Fast Food Nation, as rigorous as Joseph E. Stiglitz's Globalization and Its Discontents, and as
scathing as Michael Moore's Stupid White Men, Joel Bakan's new book is a brilliantly argued account of the corporation's pathological pursuit of
profit and power. An eminent law professor and legal theorist, Bakan contends that the corporation is created by law to function much like a
psychopathic personality whose destructive behavior, if left unchecked, leads to scandal and ruin.
5.) And of course a Full
review of the book somewhere along the lines of 500-1000 words.
6.) And maybe some type of ranking system such as...5 magnyfying glasses
7.) And here is the best part of all. A Buy here
in which members could purchase the book from a leading internet book store. All commission
proceeds go to ATS attempt to promote literacy
What do you guys think?
