I picked up a copy of this at the weekend. To reterate what they have already said;
Smith Journal volume one is all about the kind of guys you know and the kind of guys you probably want to know better. We talk to ordinary blokes about being a good brother, have a gander in a musos wardrobe, travel to Alaska, ask a public intellectual what he believes in, think about moving into a house made out of a boat, learn how to talk like a 19th century sailor, figure out what quantum physics is all about and wonder whether we’ll survive the coming apocalypse. There are interviews with interesting types, chuckle-out-loud opinion pieces, culture, fashion, science, history and a fair few beers in the mix as well. All in all, a bloody good read.
