Foushy Good Reads Returns!

What is Foushy Reads?

I’ve been trying to be a little bit more productive on my flights by using the down time to attack my “To Be Read Pile.” I gave myself a goal of reading one book per flight (on flights longer than 2 hours) and I’ve been making tons of headway! I haven’t been posting reviews of everything I’ve read because it’s been a mix of fiction, (romance, biographies, mysteries) but of course, I do try to mix in some “industry” literature.

The first Foushy Good Reads was Mitch Joel’s “Six Pixels of Separation.” I reviewed the book, and Mitch was kind enough to answer some of my questions.

Next up will be Amber MacArthur’s “PowerFriending.” Some other books that I’m writing up include “The Four Hour Work Week,” by Tim Ferris and “Trust Agents,” by Chris Brogan.

I only recommend books I like:

I really love reading book reviews since I’m always on the hunt for a juicy read. One of my favorite parts of getting through a great book is being able to tell someone about it so they can experience it for themselves. I find book reviews so subjective  that I have a hard time finding books without getting overwhelmed.

What I’d rather do is find people who have similar tastes to me and follow what they are reading. I’ve liked this approach so much that I’ve decided to do the same with my book reviews. Foushy Reads will only focus on reviewing books that I have liked and will generally have a post reviewing my impressions as well as a Q&A with the author.


I’m fortunate to count some of these very smart people as my friends and my policy towards reviewing their work remains the same. I won’t post a review unless I like it and am honest about sharing my constructive feedback. I will also make any association known at the beginning of the review.

Got a great book? Shoot me an email and let me know!

    Hey Rahaf,

    I just finished reading “The Facebook Effect” by David Kirkpatrick. Here’s my review on Amazon about it —

    I thought it was an incredibly detailed account of the Facebook Story that’s yet to be released.

    I think we have the same tastes (i.e. social media, entrepreneurship, startups), so I’ll be looking forward to your recommendations.
