  • Heavier than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain

    Story

    When Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994, it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it.

    Richard says: "Great story - missing chapter 12"
    "Kurt the Person"
    Overall

    Not having been a fan of Kurt Cobain or Nirvana
    for that matter, my appeal to this biography was to answer my question. What drives us as human beings to the place of suicide?
    With that said, I came out of this story with the depths of my soul being forever touched by a man I only read about. Such a human side to this very misguided genuis.
    The book is filled with more foul language than I normally will give place to, but I wasn't reading Mary Poppins. Oh, you may need a barf bag @ times due to the graphic story line.
    However, it never takes away from Kurt. The human, tender side that is there. You just have to look for it, you have to want to see it. But he is there.
    Just like all little boys he needed nourturing, protection, he needed to know he was o.k.
    Kurt, love ya man. You the person, not all the rock n roll drama. But you were a shining star even without a guitar.

    Seattle Customer says: "Try Unabridged Version"
    "Don't Leave Home Without it"
    Overall

    I have this in paper back, audio cd, and ipod.
    This man has done his homework. It is almost an instruction manual on awareness. Very intense is the author in his presentation to equip and educate. I have given this book to many of my friends and they share with their friends.
    Definately recommend.

  • Boys Adrift: Factors Driving the Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men

    Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, they are less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

    Kirt says: "Startling, well-researched view..."
    "Don't Forget Our Boys"
    Overall

    If you have an interest in successful children, in this case boys, this a must.
    It takes us into their world, their minds, their needs as youngsters so we can produce better adults.
    If you are looking for some insight into the little boy of your life, this I highly recomment.

  • A Saint on Death Row: The Story of Dominique Green

    Story

    A Saint on Death Row will introduce you to a young man whose history, innate goodness, and final days you will never forget. It also shines a necessary light on America's racist and deeply flawed legal system. A Saint on Death Row is an absorbing, sobering, and deeply spiritual story that illuminates the moral imperatives too often ignored in the headlong quest for justice.

    "Listen with your heart"
    Overall

    I must adimit I love people's life story. This is a compelling story of a child's trauma and suffering. The aftermath of a neglected human being, an uncared for child that started out on a bad note should open our eyes as to what needs to be our focus.
    As I listened to this story, I was struggling with some unforgiveness myself. But listening to the attitude and outlook of a man on death row brought me to conviction within my own soul. When a man on death row can talk about being thankful for so much, what on earth did I have to complain about.
    Would love to see this story on film some day. Incredible.

    Dr. Ben Carson's Gifted Hands is the inspiring autobiography of an inner-city kid with poor grades and little motivation who grew up to become one of the world's most renowned and important surgeons.

    Philana says: "A Great Book by a humble man"
    "Amazing, simply Amazing"
    Overall

    This is a must read. Such a success story of this gifted man's life. A story to share with children of all ages, especially those which fail and those that dream big. All walks of life could be touched by this story.

    When Tony Dungy became the first African-American head coach to win the Super Bowl, he did it in the shadow of a great tragedy. But even through hardship, his fundamental decency and faith in God was readily apparent in everything he did.

    Dan says: "Awesome"
    "Better than Good!"
    Overall

    This book by far exceeded my expectattions. I am not a sports fan, so wasn't too sure what to expect.
    I am lost for words to describe the magnitude of inspiration, admiration, and over all compassion for this man and his life.
    Made me want to join a football team!!
