Grab your lace shawl and top hat and get ready to twirl—this is a full-throttle appreciation of the life and voice of Stevie Nicks from one of rock criticism’s most celebrated writers.   

Best-selling author and Rolling Stone columnist Rob Sheffield explores the music and artistry of the rock goddess who has kept generations of music lovers totally bewitched and spellbound, with such classic rock hits as "Rhiannon" and "Gypsy".

This is the worst book I have ever listened to. The author admits he is a fan. As such, it is purely subjective with no objectivity. He doesn't seem to have use of any original descriptors, seemingly only using lyrics from Nicks's own songs to describe her. When I want to hear Nicks's lyrics, I will listen to her songs, which I love.

Is there a secret to happiness? Beloved comedian Paula Poundstone conducts a series of "thoroughly unscientific" experiments to find out, offering herself up as a guinea pig and recording her data for the benefit of all humankind. Armed with her unique brand of self-deprecating wit and the scientific method, in each chapter Paula tries out a different get-happy hypothesis.

I loved this book! Paula Poundstone is frank about herself and family. and she really tried some legitimate means that might lead to true happiness. Her narration is perfect. Her grammar is refreshingly very good, and her diction very nice. I loved everything about listening to this book.
