Into The Shadows is the first novel by Lieutenant Colonel Michael Brady. It’s fast, it’s current, and it’s grounded as a thriller introducing hero Michael Brennan to the world, while he attempts to save it from terrorists, globetrotting from Israel, Cyprus, Germany, Syria, Turkey, Jamaica, Cuba, and New York City with a diverse supporting cast.Declassify >
Walk This Way: The Autobiography of Aerosmith is The Definitive Story of The Definitive Rock Band Told In Their Own Words.
I know the story of Aerosmith. I’ve read the articles, seen the videos, and listened to the interviews. Heck I even read this book, back in junior high on a technicality because the teacher said Arrowsmith, but I read this instead.
But rereading this book again, I have a new appreciation for their story, their struggle, and their triumph. I also found myself in awe of the formatting of this “autobiography” about the band.Declassify >
Sinatra: The Chairman by James Kaplan is the second of two books Kaplan wrote on the man, the myth, and the legend; the one and only Frank Sinatra. But I did not actually know this was the second of two books until I read about the first one (Sinatra: The Voice) in the acknowledgements.
Now, it did answer my one question as to why this book starts with the resurrection of his career in the mid-1950’s instead of at the beginning of his life. But as much as I can (at times) be a completionist, the book I read was the one of the two that I was more interested in.Declassify >

Close Up is about an actor, relationships, the film industry, and an author. It is an amazing fictionalized look into a world, when film was starting to reel from the expanse of television and the idea of celebrity in film stars.Declassify >

Let’s start with the cover, the inside cover, because using those words to describe the book seems better than making something up with different words that mean the same thing.
“But What If We’re Wrong? is a book of original, reported, interconnected pieces, which speculates on the likelihood that many universally accepted, deeply ingrained cultural and scientific beliefs will someday seem absurd.”Declassify >
