Review Date: 7/14/2006


The author Erdman presided over the dramatic rise and fall of the United California Bank in Basel, Switzerland, of which he was founder and first president. He began writing The Billion Dollar Sure Thing while "detained" in a Swiss jail as a result of his bank's collapse. His book, however, is a work of fiction.

"Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. This collection of terrifying stories peels back the skin of daily life, exposing the horror underneath. Meet the boy who buys a werewolf mask for Halloween, only to meet a real werewolf; a bathtub that transforms its owners into ax murderers; an after-school job where you pay...with your life. Incoluding the classic Dracula and stories by Stephen King and Robert Westall, here is a book you'll never be able to forget--no matter how hard you try."

Great tips. A popular author for choosing the right college for your child. Fiske minces no words; it was a refreshing and helpful book for us. You may not agree with Fiske, but you will know what HE thinks.
