WWE Absolutely Everything You Need to Know Review

October 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

The latest book release from the DK Publishing/WWE partnership dropped at the beginning of the month, and as you would expect it’s a pretty good one. If you’re a fan of pop culture books, you may have seen some other DK’s other “Absolutely Everything You Need To Know” books for Star Wars, Marvel, and LEGO. WWE: [...]

The Power of Right Believing Review

October 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

What you believe is powerful. If you can change what you believe, you can change your life! Many today are struggling to control their behaviors and actions because they don’t have control over their emotions and feelings. They don’t have control over their emotions and feelings because they don’t have control over their [...]

It’s Time – My 360° View of the UFC Review

May 12, 2013 // 3 Comments

I am a fan of UFC and MMA in general, but not as big a fan as I once was (and even back during the time when I was a big fan, I preferred PRIDE to UFC). Anyone who has ever watched a UFC fight knows who Bruce Buffer is; the charismatic ring announcer, half-brother to legendary wrestling and boxing announcer Michael Buffer. What I didn’t know was [...]

The Treasures of Bruce Lee Review

February 21, 2013 // 0 Comments

I have seen a little of Bruce Lee’s work as an actor, but not much and I’m certainly not a big Bruce Lee fan. Having said that, I really love this book; so if I, as someone who isn’t a Bruce Lee fan, love this book then fans of Mr. Lee should be doing cartwheels over it. Really, it’s pretty awesome (as these kinds of books tend to me, at [...]

Dead Space Liberation Review

February 20, 2013 // 0 Comments

Liberation is the third of the Dead Space graphic novels (and only the second that I have read). This one serves as a prequel to Dead Space 3, a game which I do not yet have myself, but one that our Features Editor Eric W. award three-out-of-four stars to in his PC review a couple of days ago. This first I read (and reviewed here) was Salvage and [...]

Dead Space Salvage Review

February 15, 2013 // 0 Comments

Day 46 of the QDR brings us another graphic novel, video game tie-in: Dead Space Salvage. The story is set in between Dead Space and Dead Space 2 and involves a group of illegal miners salvaging the Ishimura. Is it worth reading? [...]

How An Economy Grows and Why It Crashes Review

January 17, 2013 // 0 Comments

Think you can't learn economics? Think again! Peter Schiff's book "How An Economy Grows and Why It Crashes" breaks down economics to a level anyone can understand and reveals the common sense approach that is Austrian economics. Read the review in the 17th QDR! [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 3 Accipiter Review

January 6, 2013 // 0 Comments

This is the final volume, so far, of the French comics to be released in English (all three volumes were just released in English back in October). A fourth volume came out in November in French titled “Hawk.” After finishing this volume, I really hope it doesn’t take another two volumes to come out before the series is printed in English [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 2 Aquilus Review

January 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

If you read my review yesterday of the first volume, then you know this is really where this series of graphic novels begin a serious departure from the storyline we play in the Assassin’s Creed games. Yes, the characters we met in the first game (Desmond and Lucy) and the second game on (Rebecca and Shaun) are all present but things are way out [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 1 Desmond Review

January 4, 2013 // 0 Comments

This is first volume of the French comic/graphic novel series of Assassin’s Creed books. This volume starts off with Subject 16 and an ancestor named Aquilus, but it’s very much about Desmond and Altair. It tells how Desmond was kidnapped and came to be at Abstergo, and shows some key missions of Altair’s. For the most part, this volume [...]

Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die Review

January 2, 2013 // 2 Comments

Willie Nelson is an undeniable American legend of Country-Western music. But there has always been more to Willie than his music; he’s an actor, a writer, and an advocate for several causes. He has written a few books before, both non-fiction and fiction, including an autobiography. This book is “musings from the road,” and that’s quite [...]

Review: Patriots Of Treason

November 24, 2012 // 0 Comments

Author: David Thomas Roberts This was a review copy, provided at no cost to the reviewer. It should be duly noted right out at the forefront of this review that this is definitely a very in your face kind of book as it relates to its political dealings. Unashamedly, it’s a tin foil hat wearing, ‘right wingers’ kind of book mixing elements of [...]
