CONFEDERACIES OF ROBERTS

The nerve: a couple of guys named David (Rensin) and Bill (Zehme) thought they'd write about guys named Bob = thus The Bob Book . (Why don't Roberts write these books themselves? One reviewer says the answer may be that Bobs do not have time for navel-contemplation.)

Or do they? Master of his domain Bob Meier grabbed the most obvious name for his website The Book of Bob, one man's life and career online.

Composer Paul Chasman is responsible for The (other) Book of Bob - a comic satire about a 21st century prophet who takes on politics, religion and popular culture.
