  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    The language is something you'd expect to hear at a truck stop at best. Once you get over the constant F-bombs it is a very funny book. I'm not a fan of his movies but I do like him.

    The chapter on Bruce Willis is worth the price of the book!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Story

    Very surprised to see all the glowing reviews. I loved the first book. Liked the second book alot (not quite as well as the first one.

    In Beyond Exile Bourne tries to do too much and ends up with far less. Has too many characters in too many locations that become too confusing trying to keep up with them all. The story jumps around too much without giving you a heads up the road is taking a turn. You are in a flashback before you know it. The climax isn't much of a climax. Leaves way too many unanswered questions.

    I was greatly anticipating the release of this book. Maybe reading the book on paper makes all the jumping around easier to follow. Listening to in just left me confused and wanting it to hurry up and be over. : <

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    I remember when Grisham was gold. You could buy his next book and know you were getting something great to read. Hasn't been that way for some time. : <

    GIDEON DAVIS, whose behind-the-scenes negotiating skills have earned him the role of peacemaker in conflicts around the globe, knows more about hush-hush discussions in Capitol corridors than he does about hand-to-hand combat. But his more practical, tactical skills come into play when he’s called on by family friend and government bigwig Earl Parker to chaperone a rogue agent from Southeast Asia to D.C. The agent, Tillman Davis, has promised to turn himself in— but only to his brother, Gideon.

    Thomas says: "Gordon might consider going back to Producing!"
    "Not very good"
    Overall

    I saw the referral from Vince Flynn and even Jack Bauer himself (Keifer S) and excitedly bought this book. Mostly it was dull and far fetched. Every ten minutes it seemed he was knowing he was going to die and making peace with it.

    This should have been a practice book for him to work the kinks out for the real book. Nothing like Mitch Rapp books or the tv show 24.

    When NBC decided to move Jay Leno into prime time to make room for Conan O'Brien to host the Tonight show - a job he had been promised five years earlier - skeptics anticipated a train wreck for the ages. It took, in fact, only a few months for the dire predictions to come true. Leno's show, panned by critics, dragged down the ratings - and the profits - of NBC's affiliates, while ratings for Conan's new Tonight show plummeted to the lowest levels in history.

    Roy says: "Great Story"
    "Amazing background"
    Overall

    This was one I could not put down. I like late night tv and was amazed at the detail Bill Carter put in to the behind the scenes. I'm still amazed Jay Leno was branded the bad guy when he was being pushed out in the top of his game. Carter does a good job showing all sides and not pointing fingers but giving the facts.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    This book had me driving around the neighborhood not wanting to stop until it abruptly with no closing at all. I thought maybe there was a missing book. WTF. Did he just run out of tape? Don't spend six hours with this book unless you want to make up the last five chapters in your own mind.

    In Good Day!: The Paul Harvey Story, author Paul J. Batura follows the remarkable life of one of the founding fathers of the news media. Paul Harvey started his career during the Great Depression and narrated America's story day by day, through wars and peace, the threat of communism and the crumbling of old colonial powers, consumer booms and eventual busts.

    Edward C. Charbonnet says: "What wonderful story of 2 people - Paul and Angel."
    "Should have been better"
    Overall

    I have been a huge Paul Harvey fan since I was a kid. I like biographies. This instead of delving deep into Harvey's life this book seemed more like a report a college student would write. It's nice knowing what the weather was like on his first day of work but I would have rather had more insight from friends and family.

    There would have been no KISS without Gene Simmons, the outrageous star whose superlong tongue, legendary sexual exploits, and demonic makeup have made him a rock icon. KISS and Make-Up is the wild, shocking, unbelievable story, from the man himself, about how an immigrant boy from Israel studied to be a rabbi, was saved by rock and roll, and became one of the most notorious rock stars the world has ever seen.

    Karen says: "Loved it"
    "This Rocks"
    Overall

    I wasn't a Kiss fan growing up. I liked Beth and maybe two others. I still loved this book and call myself a Simmons fan now. A little slow at the start where he talks about his early childhood but then takes off. Good book.
