Caleb's Reviews

C. Hollis Crossman was educated by wolves and Dr. Richard Caulkins. He can read and write; he wrote the product reviews in this category, and most of the curriculum reviews and category descriptions on the Exodus Books website. Any canine attributes C. Hollis exhibits are those granted him by nature.

Caleb worked for us as used book buyer and product reviewer for seven years, ending his employment at Exodus in December 2014. He moved on to a job with Georgia Tech, doing a contract for DHS, where he was researching and writing about security concerns in open source software communities. Since then, he has gone back to school, works crazy hours and spends as much time as he can with his wife and two kids (while still occasionally pursuing his quest to find the worst B-movie ever filmed).

Caleb did an amazing amount of writing while he was here, reviewing 700+ unique books, and most of the category descriptions and essays throughout the site. He continues to write sporadically for us, so this number will slowly grow. We link below to the books the venerable Crossman has reviewed; click this link to see category descriptions he's written (this is not nearly complete).

Also, you should read his blog.
