    A vade mecum the final few lines of Vade Mecum tell us is a guide or handbook kept close at all times and used for instruction I wouldn't go as far as keeping VM with me at all times but I did take it away with me on a long weekend and I do intend to keep it within handy reach for a while now that I'm back home even though I've finished it Why? Well the main thing it has going for it is that it's a slim but dense source of things that sound interesting and that I want to check outThis will be easiest for music in the age of Spotify there's a 12 page essay on dub as a musical style for example the longest entry in the book and I want to listen to pretty much every musician and track mentioned in itThen there's the entry that consists solely of a list of moments aspects from films without any explanation of what they have in common They're obviously bits Skinner likes attributes something to but why what? Some explanation would have been nice actually but you get the gist the films are worth seeingI love collections of criticism and comment that span different media and VM is a worthy addition to the likes of Adair's Surfing the Zeitgeist and Hitchen's Arguably It's not uite on the same level but it's a denser source of promising trails to follow and well worth keeping close to hand for that reason alone
