    For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism, and his excessive lifestyle, was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had.

    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    As a long-time Hendrix fan, I learned a lot from this book that I did not know before. The narrator reads it dynamically, holding my attention all the way through. I could not "put it down." I feel like I know Jimi the person much better, and enjoy listening to his music and can now hear both the early excitement and growth and his later frustration revealed through his playing. It was great to go back and watch Hendrix at Woodstock and at the Isle of Wight with a knowledge of the "behind the scenes" backstory of these events. Highly recommended.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Kristina says: "MUST READ/LISTEN"
    "Excellent telling of the story. Bill's best yet."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Killing Kennedy the most enjoyable?

    Having lived through the assasination during my preteen years, for me, Bill brought the age of the early 60s back to life in such a vivid way as to bring back all the feelings of that time. Anyone who was older that 6 or 7 at the time remembers that day - a day like 9/11 that bore into one's soul, even at a young age. Bill's use of parallel vantage points leading up to the asassination made the experience like watching a well-crafted movie. I was riveted and could not stop listening until the final act.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Kennedy?

    There were several memorable moments in the book. There were many things about JFK that I only vaguely heard about that Bill brought to light, such as the story of PT-109, JKFs many, many affairs, and the JFK-LBJ rivalry, all brought to life and told as I had never heard them told before.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole dynamic between the Kennedys and LBJ, and how LBJ handled the news of the asassination was kind of shocking. This was not discussed or talked about during that time.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could not stop listening. I usually listen in my car on my commute, and it was all I listened to for several days until it was completed.


    Any additional comments?

    Bill's best narrative.
