    Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust by Ken Scott and Bobby Owsinski



    http://www.amazon.com/Abbey-Road-Zig...ziggy+stardust

    Ken Scott was one of the premier recording engineers beginning in the late sixties. This 400+ page book was so much fun to read as it covers all the great albums he engineered and, later, also produced.

    The Beatles, Bowie, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Supertramp, Missing Persons, George Harrison, Duran Duran, Stanley Clarke, Lou Reed, Elton John, etcetera. Plus, he goes into detail about the mics, limiters, tape machines, boards and studios that he used.

    Just finished Cold Vengeance, Preston Child
    for anyone that's followed all the Pendergast novels it's a good train ride, I enjoyed it more than Fevre Dream. Can't believe I have to wait for them to come out with the next Gideon book before they come back to it.

    Up Against It- M.J. Locke

    A bit of "hard sci-fi" about life on an asteroid colony were disaster strikes, a feral AI gets loose and organized crime may be the cause. A pretty good read and not at all bad for a first book from a new author.

    The Fix is the most explosive story of sports corruption in a generation. It presents compelling evidence that some of the highest soccer matches in the world may have been fixed: European Champions League, Olympic and World Cup tournaments.

    Intriguing, riveting, and compelling, it tells the story of an investigative journalist, Declan Hill, who set out to examine the world of football match fixing in professional soccer.

    The Iceman Confessions of A Mafia Contract Killer: By Carlo, Philip

    An American contract killer. The 6'5" , 300 pound Kuklinski worked for Newark's DeCavalcante crime family and New York City's Five Families. He claimed to have murdered close to 250 men (sources vary) between 1948 and 1986. Claimed to have committed his first murder at the age of 13

    The Art of Intelligence Lessons from A Life in the CIA's Clandestine Service: By Crumpton, Henry A.


    For a crucial period, Henry Crumpton led the CIA's global covert operations against America's terrorist enemies, including al Qaeda. In the days after 9/11, the CIA tasked Crumpton to organize and lead the Afghanistan campaign. With Crumpton's strategic initiative and bold leadership, from the battlefield to the Oval Office, U.S. and Afghan allies routed al Qaeda and the Taliban in less than ninety days after the Twin Towers fell. At the height of combat against the Taliban in late 2001, there were fewer than five hundred Americans on the ground in Afghanistan, a dynamic blend of CIA and Special Forces. The campaign changed the way America wages war. This book will change the way America views the CIA.

    The Art of Intelligence draws from the full arc of Crumpton's espionage and covert action exploits to explain what America's spies do and why their service is more valuable than ever.

    I have a request.

    When you post the image of the book, post the name as well.

    I will re-read this thread every so often to find a new book to read or go back and get the name of book I remember someone posting from way back. Since this thread is years old there are many early posts that simply have a red x.

    or this:

    X

    Oh man this is greatest book ever! Changed my life, you really must read it!


    and of course we now have no idea what the hell book the person is talking about. So please, if you would be so kind, post the name with the book image.
