    not too shabby

    Jack B. Moore¿s book Skinheads: Shaved for Battle is written about skinhead culture in late 20th century America. It isn¿t as much of a research novel as it is a chronology of events involving skinheads. While the book didn¿t exactly grasp your interest, the information itself was rather interesting. Overall, I would have to say that while the book is not very fun to read, the information is interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn¿t mind dry reading and is interested in skinheads and what they are about.
