A Surreal Journey Through a Cute - and Beautiful World

Review: I love this coloring book! Got it as a gift for my step daughter & if she doesn't use it I'm going to!! The pictures are so detailed-the longer you look at them, the more you see. After the enjoyment of simply looking at the artwork-coloring it will be even more fun! Read more

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Review: I keep thinking I was born at the wrong time. I missed the expatriat scene of Fitzgerald and Hemingway, the Beats, and Kesey and his counterculture scene. Wolfe's book may not be as good as being there, but it does help those of us born far too late to understand and enjoy the scene. Wolfe writes sympathetically and pretty much from the point of view of the Pranksters, as if he had been there for all of it (he wasn't). Wolfe is a fine journalist, and he does a great job here. I think this is a v... Read more

Review: I'll admit it upfront. I am a Freakonomics lover! And I expected big things from Super-Freakonomics. And I received!

This book is terrific. Outstanding! Incredible!

Buy this book! This is the best book I have on my Kindle (and I have a lot of books)! Read more

The Desolation of Smaug Visual Companion - The Hobbit
The Desolation of Smaug Visual Companion - The Hobbit

Review: It is not comprehesive enough in terms of characters coverage. No information about the war between the dwarves and the dragon, no information about the war between the dwarves and the Orcs. I personally do not think it is a visual companion which cannot leave the readers especially those who have watched the film a positive impression. If you compare the similar essential visual guide published by DK for other films and other stories, DK is much much better. I hope the publisher of The Hobbit... Read more

and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are

Review: Should be required reading for anyone talking or thinking about Big Data and how it's used. This will be the first of many to make more sense of it than has been to date. It's fine to say don't start into big data efforts just for the sake of mountains of data, but have an objective, but most people haven't a clue how to begin to figure out what those objectives might be. This will help, but the future holds more ideas I'm sure. Still is nods toward the power and value of big data analyses that ... Read more

The Official Story of the Abbey Road years 1962-1970
The Official Story of the Abbey Road years 1962-1970

Review: Mark Lewisohn has put together a phenomenal and very detailed Anthology of the Bealtes recorded music. The day to day "logs" of the recording sessions shows how the Beatles progressed through their career and how they eventually took much more control of the way thing were done in the studio. A great read for Beatle fanatics. Read more

The 50th Law
The 50th Law

Review: The 50th Law is a focused and personal supplement to Greene's earlier 48 Laws of Power. Although Greene has not had the experience of whispering advice into the ears of world leaders, he understands and writes very well about the realities of succeeding in the corporeal world. I consider Robert Greene a modern day Niccolo Machiavelli and these two works are modern versions of "The Prince". Read more

An Extreme Coloring and Search Challenge
An Extreme Coloring and Search Challenge

Review: I love this book! The pictures are a lot of fun. Just make sure to put a couple sheets of blank white paper behind the one you are coloring so you dont get the print from the picture on the back on the next picture. Read more

What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures
What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures

Review: Malcolm is fun. He's got a different perspective. A super intellectual he's not (nor am I), but he's a solid writer and asks questions others don't. I'd recommend this book and his others. I'd also recommend a haircut, but that's his personal choice. Read more
