(film, TV, Internet, radio, book publishing, magazines, newspapers); I must
approve the book you select; if you read about technology and not history, get
the newest book possible

--CONTENT: good attention-getting introduction; summarize the main points;
talk about 2 particularly interesting things you learned from the book; good
conclusion

appears. For example, if you have 3 sentence fragments, you just lost 15 points

--do not type all bold or all italics

hand on the due date
