Everyone recommended getting this book to help plan our travel from Texas to Alaska, this summer. Quickly scanned the book and was amazed at the amount of information contained in it! Seems like every business along the routes is detailed with mile marker locations and services available. Also interesting items to see along the way. It describes the road conditions one can expect and and approximate mileage one can drive in a single day. I'm sure it will be of great use to us.

When noted author and New Orleans native Bruce Spizer published his final book about the American records from the Beatles back in 2007, many thought he was finished with this type of publication. Behold - he strikes again with yet another winner! This time, it is called "Beatles For Sale On Parlophone Records", an exhaustive yet informative piece of work that covers all the stories about the Beatles records released on the Parlophone label in the U.K. Just like the prior books about Vee-Jay, Capitol, Apple and Swan, this book contains full color and original black-and-white images of all known existing album covers, picture sleeves, record labels and other items pertaining to these releases. The book details how all of the recordings released by the group during that time were written, recorded and marketed in the U.K. -- presented in the same style as Spizer's previous critically-acclaimed books on the Beatles American record releases. In addition to discs with Parlophone labels, the book covers the Apple singles and albums manufactured and distributed by EMI, as well as the Fan Club Christmas discs and the Polydor releases of the group's Hamburg recordings. Covered are all 22 singles from "Love Me Do" to "Let It Be"; 15 U.K. albums including both unreleased variations of the infamous "Get Back" album and the 1966 compilation "A Collection Of Beatles Oldies"; over 15 original U.K. E.P. (extended play) records which also feature information about the cancelled "The Beatles' Golden Discs" and the aborted "Yellow Submarine" titles. Plus, an impressive 30 additional chapters about other related information on the U.K. Parlophone releases. At more than 440 pages in length, this book has it all.

The Beatles became a worldwide musical phenomenon, but this book tells a special story about how these 4 young men created the music that forever changed the world. Congratulations, Bruce!

This book is not only the wonderful classic story, but each page has a wonderfully raised furry or cloth feel that my grandson reaches for as soon as you turn the page. Touch and feel books are loved by children. This one is very nice quality.

anderson has a great easy to read writing style. his approach to dealing w/ horses is very insightful. he takes a horse whisperer approach while encouraging both ground and riding practices that encourage mutual respect btwn horse and rider. i'm a beginner (my daughter's experienced) and we both loved the book, me b/c it had detailed explanation/pics of technique, and her b/c it offered a very compassionate yet firm way to deal w/ horses

The complete Calvin & Hobbes! Unlike the paperback editions that cherry picked and passed over some great panels, this three volume set covers all of Bill Waterston's classic comic strip. I have to give major kudos to the printer for the highest resolution printing I've yet to see from any collection like this. The B&W panels are crisp and clear and the Sunday panels have definition and colour that was lost in the newspapers and in the paperback editions. All are in heavy hardbound, sewn books, which in turn are in a heavy clothbound slipcase. If you are a C&H fan, don't pass this one up!
