This book changed how I look at the universe. This definitely won't be for everyone. The few who will find their way to this book will love it.

Seems to work fine for an old, obsolete system. My 9 year old son is the one who uses this and he gives it two thumbs up.

Works well and sufficiently handles our cat litter-box odor issues. The clamps are very flimsy however, and one of them snapped when I tightened it. As a result I had to attach the filter to the fan with duct tape but it works fine.

This book is the most thorough history of the money/banking system you'll likely ever read. It should be required reading in every school in North America.

Anyone looking for an introduction to Buddhism should know that there is a lot to learn. This book does a great job of presenting everything you need to know in a practical and down-to-earth way. I recommend this book.

Kiss and Make-Up
Kiss and Make-Up
by Gene Simmons

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be subtitled "Why Gene Simmons Is So Great", Sept. 4 2013
This review is from: Kiss and Make-Up (Paperback)
This is not a book that tells anything resembling a detailed story of KISS. This is a total puff piece. It's all about Gene, how smart he is, how hard he worked, how successful he's been at everything he's ever tried, and how many women he's slept with. He doesn't shed much light on KISS' 1970's glory days, although I'm sure there must have been some great stories from that era that remain untold. He only goes into detail when he wants to make other people look bad.

Simmons wastes a lot of effort in deriding and insulting former KISS members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, going out of his way to paint them as lazy, volatile, alcoholics and drug addicts. To KISS fans, Frehley and Criss were integral parts of the classic lineup, and it's painful to see Simmons throw them under the bus like he does in these pages. He paints them as incompetent musicians who contributed very little to KISS' success. Gene keeps himself directly in the spotlight at all times, and shows virtually no humility. He spends more time discussing his relationships with Cher and Shannon Tweed than he does discussing the thing that made him famous in the first place, his music.

The only thing this book did for me was destroy much of the KISS mystique, which is a shame because I was a big fan.
