    If you were a fan of popular music in the 1960s and early '70s, you were a fan of the Wrecking Crew - whether you knew it or not. On hit record after hit record by everyone from the Byrds, the Beach Boys, and the Monkees to the Grass Roots, the 5th Dimension, Sonny & Cher, and Simon & Garfunkel, this collection of West Coast studio musicians from diverse backgrounds established themselves as the driving sound of pop music - sometimes over the objection of actual band members....

    Story

    I am a fan of the music from the 60's and the 70's, heck truth told there is just about no music I do not enjoy. So as to not give the "plot Away" too badly it tells the history of how the in studio music was recorded during the heyday of Rock and roll. Touches on the Beach Boys, Phil Spector and an interesting story about Glenn Campbell. it's a must read if you enjoy the ins and outs of Rock and Roll.

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

  • H. P. Lovecraft, Volume 2: 'The Call of Cthulhu' and 'Reanimator'

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, his health was uncertain from childhood and he led a sheltered early life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read omnivorously, and as a shy imaginative child he began to invent what would in his adult life become a whole macabre fantastic world of his own, peopled by creatures out of his own weird imagination.

    Story

    I had wanted to read Lovecrafts books as a kid, but never took the time. I love Horror and Science fiction and have a friend that off and on has suggested I take the time and "just do it". I am glad I did, the intricacy's of his stories is captivating and well worth the time. The use of vocabulary is thought provoking.

    The books, having been written at a time that Society was not as developed as it is today, give an insight into the past that most of us never knew. I highly recommend these stories.

    The Clockwork Universe is the story of a band of men who lived in a world of dirt and disease but pictured a universe that ran like a perfect machine. A meld of history and science, this book is a group portrait of some of the greatest minds who ever lived as they wrestled with natures most sweeping mysteries. The answers they uncovered still hold the key to how we understand the world.

    Story

    The book would have made Math studies more interesting to me as a Middle school student. Opened up the reasoning behind the discovery of Calculus.

    It was well written and showed the reader the history behind the discovery of the Math that lead to the scientific discoveries concerning astronomy from the 17th century to now.

    Also showing that the primary purpose of the work that the early astronomers was to show /explain the hand of God in the universe design.
