I only have one Rod Stewart album, but I like music biographies so I thought I would give this a go. I was pleasantly surprised. As well as very interesting, I found it to be incredibly funny as well. At times when listening I would just burst out laughing at some of the stories.
It gives an excellent overview of his life from his childhood, to his early career with Long John Baldrey, The Jeff Beck Group, The Faces and then to his solo career. Overall it is fantastic, I have seen him interviewed but he is much more articulate in this book.
I think even the casual listener would get a lot out of this book.
This is the only time I have bought a book because of the title, I was pleasantly surprised. The book is engaging and is written from the heart. It details the issues of mental illness and the ongoing struggle for sanity and a normal life. "Unhinged" is not a downer or weepy in it's story telling style, but gives an insight into the eternal struggle for people with mental illness trying to go about their day to day lives.
I like Gene Simmons. I liked "Kiss and Make Up" and "Sex, Money Kiss". This book is like an updated version of the latter. It is truthful and to the point. One the key points that came home to me, was that most projects and business ventures fail. Being able to come to terms with this fact is very important. So is the ability to move on to the next project.
He is truthful and brutally honest, so if you are after sugar coated material this might not be for you. But overall I thought it was great.
This is quite strong on detail for his post Beatle years. Overall, it is an excellent account of rock music's most enduring star.
I can't believe how much Paul has done in his career. The story is actually is actually quite epic in its length, but it managed to hold my interest over the 26 hours.
I love Ayn Rand's writing. This book (like many of her others) is classic.
This audiobook lay dormant in my library for quite a while as the sound quality was not great. It sounds like it was recorded on magnetic tape which became damaged or has aged prematurely. They should really re-record it the way they did Atlas Shrugged. It would be fantastic if Scott Brick narrated it like he did for that book.
If you are sensitive to sound quality you might find this harder to listen to.
Move over Thomas Sowell, Alfonzo Rachel is now on the scene and sugar coating the truth is not his specialty. Confronting the myths confronting and crippling modern America this is a must read for any conservative (or concerned American) wanting to know how to get America back on track.
His insights into why the media and Hollywood have been taken over by the liberal elite are also quite brilliant. He also presents very well thought out ideas on the way forward for the Republican party in post Obama 2012 victory, because this book is the kick in the butt that the GOP needs.
The content of this extremely weak. I wish I hadn't purchased it. I cringe when I think of how bad it is.
Very good introduction to lean thinking. The book is short which makes it an ideal introduction. I had a look at the Fast Cap website which also has some more relevant information.
Interesting overview of a the ultimate ABBA compilation album. It explains how the album came into existence and why it is so successful.
I wish I had the book so I could burn it. I finished it but it was rubbish.
