“Sandy Berman is one of the most original and interesting thinkers in the library field. Anything he writes–I want to read!”–Patricia Glass Schuman, cofounder Neal-Schuman, former ALA president

“For more than half a century, Sandy Berman has radicalized librarianship, improved cataloging, admonished the Library of Congress, stimulated peers, and published hundreds of scholarly works. Thank goodness!”–Robert Hauptman, editor, Journal of Information Ethics

“Sandy has the passion of a revolutionary. His righteous indignation is all the more endearing for the pomposity of his targets”–James V. Carmichael, Jr., LIS professor, UNC Greensboro

“Sandy Berman is fire for the mind. Along with heat and light, he brings unchained intelligence and a passion for justice. He’s readable, he’s revolutionary, and, by golly, he’s right!”–Rosalie Maggio, How to Say It author
