Mark Morford provides a lively, succinct, and comprehensive survey of the philosophers of the Roman World, from Cato the Censor in 155 BCE to the death of Marcus Aurelius in 180 CE. These men were asking philosophical questions whose answers had practical effects on people's lives in antiquity-and still do today-yet this is an era of philosophy somewhat neglected in recent decades. Morford puts this right by discussing the writings and ideas of numerous famous and lesser-known figures. This book serves as the ideal introduction to the newcomer to Roman philosophy.

Mark Morford is a former columnist and culture critic for SFGATE. His opinion column was called Notes & Errata. His topics varied from sex and deviance to popular culture, technology, spirituality, music and politics. The Fix began as a daily newsletter, then shifted to no more than three times a week, before being discontinued.

Mark Morford has been writing award-winning columns and cultural criticism for SFGate and the San Francisco Chronicle for 15 years, as well as teaching popular yoga classes in San Francisco for nearly as long. He’s a contributing writer for numerous publications including HuffPo, Yoga Journal, The Sun, Sex+Design, and many more, and is the author of 'The Daring Spectacle: Adventures in Deviant Journalism' (released 2010) and Mark Morford's Apothecary iOS app (released 2013)

The human hip is one of the most enigmatic and alluring parts of the body. Photographer Patrick Roddie makes portraits by framing the sensuous curve and swell of his subjects to create a stunning body of work that reveals endless variations on the same shot. Hips is a collection of 250 arresting and inspired photographs of hips (some in costume, some in body paint, some in nothing at all), taken at the vibrant and insanely creative annual international arts festival known as Burning Man. Each subject is photographed in the exact same position, but the images themselves are varied and unique, providing a rich kaleidoscope of self-expression and individuality wherein conventional rules and regulations no longer apply. This highly original photographic document, captured in a chunky and irresistible package, portrays a style and sensibility that cannot be properly defined with words, and offers a visual portfolio to spur the imagination from an instinctive photographer who shoots straight from the hip.

no words just photos covering the wide range of burners and their dress or undress. where everybody's expression of freedom is expressed in what they choose to wear. expect some nudity as at burning man clothing is opitional

The whole book is shots like the one on the cover: one per page, face-on view, thigh to ribs, across the navel and pubis. Lighting, scale, and pose are constants. It's almost a controlled experiment in portraiture.

And what results! Male and female, clothed or not, jeweled or not, covered or not - and the categories don't always overlap the way you'd expect. The clothes often decorate without covering. Figures that are nude except for jewelry or paint are often more modest than the clothed ones. Each two-page spread shows two hips, one per page, often chosen for analogy or for contrast.

The pictures are fun, humorous, outrageous, silly, and lovely - often at the same time. They show a range of figures and features, but the range could have been wider. Most (but not all) display young, unwrinkled skin; most (but not all) show European skin tones. There's nothing erotic here, but it's not for the nudity-sensitive viewer. It is for anyone who loves figure and loves to see the way each individual wants it seen. And, the number of photos for the Amazon price, nicely printed and bound, is really a deal.

I've been waiting for a book like this for a long time - a Burning Man photography book that does nothing but simply focus on the many different varieties of playa fashion that exist out there in Black Rock City. However, I must admit that I wasn't expecting something quite so, um ... narrowly focused!

No, this isn't a Shoichi Aoki's "Fruits" for the Burning Man crowd. Because, in this case, all the playa fashions shown are purely limited to only showcasing the hips of Burners. Yup, that's it. Just the hips. Nothing else. No faces, no full body shots, no nothing except the right hip of 250 assorted Burning Man attendees.

But, oh, what a fashionable right hip it is!

All the photos are closely-cropped in a very similar fashion, which makes for a very mesmerizing quick flip-through. (And really, with a book such as this, a quick flip-through is what will happen every time you pick up the book - probably while sitting in the bathroom.) The beauty, however, is in that every time you flip though it, you will discover an image that you had previously passed over. Perhaps it will be a particular tattoo that will draw your attention, or a juxtaposition of colors. But there's definitely enough here to satisfy months of bathroom time - and I'm sure it's no coincidence that the book's size is perfect for sitting atop a commode!

What I really love about this book is that it's a Burning Man book, but without ever showing the same tired images of the Man, or playa art, or theme camps, or any of the usual, cliched Black Rock City imagery. In fact, this book really has very little to do with the actual event itself. Instead, it focuses on the only reason I still go to Burning Man - it's the people! But who are these people in 'Hips'? Certainly, based on the photos, you're given a bunch of clues. But there's gloriously little text, and no captions, which lends every image an air of mystery. In the end, you're simply left with a wonderful, highly-focused study of the hips of Burners - and the fashion that adorns them!

If you ever wanted to get a sense of the creativity, hedonism and otherworldly experience that is the annual Burning Man festival, the simplest, easiest and most cost-effective way to do so is to pick up Patrick Roddie's "Hips." The photographer had the brilliant idea to shoot the unique mid-sections of reveler after reveler at the desert gathering, edit his favorites and assemble them into a book. The repetition of motif from page to page may recall Warhol's use of repeated, slightly altered images, but the singular nature of each subject's body and style in Roddie's book creates a mosaic effect that amounts to a microcosmic view of the event and its participants. Beautifully designed and fun to flip through, "Hips" brings Burning Man to your home, minus the brutal sun, sand storms, rain and mud. It's also a perfect gift for any weekend Bohemian who longs to join the art tribes in the desert and just can't get it together.

It is so hard to describe the Burningman experience to some one who hasn't been there. When looking at any pictures of BM you view the experience from the eyes of the participant and in this case the artist/photographer. Whilst you can never truly understand the experience from afar, this book will give you a good idea of the creativity not only spawned by the hips (and creative minds) of these participants, but what the event spawns in the creativity that it creates in me and those whom experience what is a life changing, artistic event. Roddie, a great photographer, gives the reader a good idea and road trip of that which inspires this wild, creative epoch of BM fashion. And for those whom have been to BM, it will forever bring up a cascade of good vibes and reminenicenses.

Hips is full of...hips. Many different hips, all taken from the same position (or some what)

Interesting photos that show character.

I have been to Burning Man and these are truly images you see on the playa...so fun, adventurous and sexy.
Going again this year and looking forward to more memorable images.
The book is great - you should check Roddie's website, too [...] - he's been working for a while on burners' body details (hips, but also hands, feet) and the guy rocks!!!

(like pretty much everybody else in Black Rock City).
