Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to oooh and ahhh over this one. I am quite serious when I name this the most important, impressive coloring book ever to reach the open market. Sure, a lot of really important ones are written, but the publishers are afraid: afraid to make waves, change minds, and start revolutions from black lines and newsprint pages. Like a fine craftsman of Zen Koans, a Greek poet of epic stature, or that guy who writes the trailers for really dramatic action movies, Earbooker weaves a story of quiet power, revealing softly lit inner truths about war, conflict, and what it means to be a real American hero. Raise your swords, because a coloring book like this does NOT come along every day. If you don't buy one now, you may live to regret the day that you could have become part of a changing tide, a part of history. You've read the review, so you can't say that you didn't know. And knowing is half the battle.
