Reviewer Grady Harp (Los Angeles. CA United States)
"The Seed & German Seed" may be just preposterous pseudonyms for now, but with the publication of this unique, immensely readable book the true authors hopefully will step forward for a much-deserved bow!
SEED'S SKETCHY RELATIONSHIP THEORIES: A GUIDE TO THE PERILS OF DATING [HOW NOT TO BECOME A BAR REGULAR\ is a long title that even in its length doesn't even begin to suggest what is in store for the curious, open minded reader. This is not a 'self-help' or a 'how to' manual: Seed and German Seed have taken a long look at our present world condition, with a special emphasis on individual evaluation and interaction with the universe, and have come up with some very thoughtful ideas and precepts by which the reader can jump in and start over at this bizarre process we call living.
Starting out with ways in which we can alter our priorities to focus more on the preparation of our inner (and outer) self, Seed offers constructive advice without preaching. One aspect that may alter the way some readers approach the wisdom contained in this book is Seed's excessive use of a particular expletive. But as he explains so soundly, language is what it is and to fancify words can at times alter the wholeness of the concept - and certainly the comedy to be found in living life honestly.
Other reviewers have singled out portions of this book as favorites - an enviable task I find difficult at best! - but there is one recurring area that deserves special attention: Seed's manifesto about gay folk is sensitive and wise and well written even for the most committed phobic folk. He does this with high comedy (lists for women to use to determine if their men have proclivities versus full time commitment) all the while reassuring everyone that we all need is to live and let live and take care of our own variations of normal before raising the hatchet toward those of others.
After about two thirds of the way through this entertaining and at times illuminating book the authors lose focus and the last third feels a bit like a standup comic filling time. But in these pages are also suggestions that there will be more works from this duo coming down the pike and the pathways they are choosing sound most intriguing.
Get ready for a good time, put away your censorship for toilet mouthed humor, and open your mind (and yes, heart) to the shenanigans herein. It is a fine piece of work!
