"A great American cookbook, one destined to take its place alongside such classics as 'The Joy of Cooking' and 'America Cooks' - Pierre Franey

"'Jane Brody's Good Food Book' is the ultimate, readable, understandable, practical and useful book on how to live sensibly and well. She is a natural-born educator who makes the know-how of good living by eating well a joy. This book is a primer on the 'new nutrition' and weight control and there are over 350 specially designed recipes that are impressive." - Craig Claiborne

"Jane Brody has done it again - a clearly written and scientifically valid work of art." - Gabe Mirkin, M.D. author of "The Sportsmedicine Book"

"Thank God for Jane Brody and her 'curative cuisine' of the nineteen eighties. Here, at last, is a guide book for all Americans who want to satisfy their undernourished psyches and re-tool their flaccid physiques at one and the same time." - Bert Greene author of "Bert Greene's Kitchen Bouquets"

Michael Jordan ....In His Own Words
Review Date: 4/22/2007


From the back cover of this audio CD:

"Michael Jordan is not only the greatest basketball player of all time, but also an international figure and genuine role model. Jordan's inspirational story is one of intense personal struggle and unequaled success not only on the hardwood but also as a respected actor, international businessman, a compassionate humanitarian, and a loving son, husband, and father. Michael's own voice is woven throughout with other famous voices culled from the author's exclusive audio archives; including Scottie Pippin, President Bill Clinton, Charles Barkley, Magic Johnson, and NBA Commissioner David Stern."

Book is in great condition with exception that cover came unglued at spine, but cover is fully intact, and in excellent condition as is the book itself. Guess the glue was not good.

I don't think that you have to be a fan of the Osbournes to enjoy this biographical account of their lives. In fact, I never watched the MTV show, not even once, and greatly enjoyed listening to this CD as I learned a lot about what makes this unique entertainment family tick, and love biographies generally.

It made me laugh in places as the family is not mainstream, but considers themselves to be just that - an ordinary family.

This book was written in 2003, and gives a good account of how Pam became the Pam that we all see in the tabloids and on TV. It provides insight into her teenage years, how she was originally discovered, her time as the original "Tool Time Girl" on "Home Improvement" and on "Baywatch", and much more. It was interesting, especially as Pam will just turn 40 in 2007.

This book has a 2007 copyright, and NOT 1997, that I incorrectly typed when entering it into the PBS system. I am awaiting a moderator to make the change.

This book is printed in the UK (ahead of the US as the author is in the UK) - it will, likely, be reprinted in the US with a US publisher and this is the author's most recent work. Unfortunately, it is too new for the PBS system to recognize, and you can see a picture of it at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sixth-Wife-Suzannah-Dunn/dp/images/000723242X
