    The gruesome murders of the beautiful and talented actress Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and four others that same night at the hands of the notorious “Manson family” rocked the nation. As one of the most horrific crimes in modern history, these atrocities, the trial, and the subsequent conviction of Charles Manson and his followers caused a media sensation, spawning movies, documentaries, and best-selling books, including the classic Helter Skelter.

    I have read just about every book on this case. This book gives the family's point of view. It was performed exceptionaly well, with different people reading different roles in the book. The information and details were, as expected, sad yet intriguing. A definite choice for true crime readers.

    John F. Kennedy died half a century ago - yet because of his extraordinary promise and untimely death, his star still resonates strongly. On the anniversary of his assassination, celebrated political scientist and analyst Larry J. Sabato - himself a teenager in the early 1960s and inspired by JFK and his presidency - explores the fascinating and powerful influence he has had over five decades on the media, the general public, and especially on each of his nine presidential successors.

    Story

    I was skeptical purchasing this book since no one else had written a review but decided to give it a chance after seeing Sabato in an interview on TV. The book is long and for good reason. Sabato goes into every detailed account of the events specific to the Kennedy presidency, and not just the assassination, but also the other history changing events, such as the Cuban Missle Crisis and the Bay of Pigs......then outlines the history of the era and how it effected the Presidents that followed. This book is the history lesson I never had. I can't recommend the book enough!

    Prepare yourself for all the details which outline why you should be even more angry about this case. It took me years to be able to face the details of this case again. There was so much I didn't know that it is outlined in this book. It dredged up old feelinsg and added a few more. A must read for those of you either believed in Simpson or not.

    As an avid reader of true crime, nothing bothers me, but this book stunned me. The stories, which I had never heard were almost unbelievable. Not that I doubted the story but I cold not believe what an animal this guy was. I had to read somethng else fast to get some of the details out of my head. A terrific book just be prepared for some horrific stories.

    Releasing this fall, the movie - starring Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, Jacki Weaver, and Billy Bob Thornton - follows a group of individuals making split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event: the doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital, the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the cameraman who captured what has become the most examined film in history, the FBI agents who had gunman Lee Harvey Oswald within their grasp, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson who had to take control of the country at a moment's notice.

    The book was great at outling the fine points of the tradegy and history of the details surrounding the Kennedy assasination. the only issue was, I had just finished reading "Reclaming History by Vincent Bugliosi, which I found to be very similiar. But none the less, interesting and substantial reading. A must read for Kennedy enthusiasts. The movie was great as well.

    On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still reverberating today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders traveled to Tehran....

The performance of the reader, who actually sounded like Stewart, was excellent. The stories, history and hollywood gossip made for one of the best books I've read. Treat yourself to relaxing trip down memory lane.

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

By providing a penetrating look into the mean streets of mid-1970s South Boston, the author shows how two kids from the neighborhood cross paths again years later, ending in the biggest informant scandal in FBI history.

I'll admit I ordered it without any other reviews...I'll never do that again. You like puzzles...read this one. Maybe you can figure it out.
