"I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

It is just a sequel of trivial facts, expressed crudely with abundant four letter words.

Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

It is so long that the story becomes insignificant. The narrator's impersonation of the different characters is quite unrealistic.

Lincoln's life cannot be compared with that quite trivial of the ladies mentioned in the book. Einstein's life is not trivial, but in this book the publisher just copied the text of Meet Albert Einstein which I previously bought, Can the same text be used with no warning for two titles by the same publisher?

The text is very superficial. It hardly matches the information available on any encyclopedia. The gimmick of pretending to listen to the subject's own words detracts to the credibility and interest of such a concise text. At any rate, onc e this format was chosen, it should have shed som light of how a deaf composer managed to write such masterpieces of music.
