    1. Bought this back in early '05 for $44.00. Glen's book are hard to come by but are worth every penny. This one's a bit of departure from the "Fuck You Heroes" books. Although it contains pics of your favorite East/West Coast punks, rappers, and skaters, "The Idealist" shows Glen's depth as a photographer with landscapes, portraits, wide shots, and too close for comfort nature shots.
