Thought I was different. Read the reviews and downloaded anyways because of the lure of saving money. Entered all my info, application worked fine for a few days, and just when they tell me they found "savings" the application crashes and won't reopen. Even tried reinstalling. Awful.
I've lived in Natchez, Mississippi, for 64 years, which is about eight miles from Ferriday, Louisiana: Jerry Lee's hometown. Also I read Southern Living monthly mainly because of Rick Bragg's amazing southern stories. I've just love the method he writes. I bet he talks the same way. His review of the history of this zone (Natchez-Ferriday) when Jerry Lee first discovered the piano was spot on. My daddy owned one of those honky-tonk night clubs on Highway 84 where Jerry Lee performed at the very beginning of his career. Daddy said he kicked him out for making too much noise. All I could think of was "Bad move daddy."
Jerry Lee Lewis - a charmer, a brawler, a driven man. With God-given talent in his fingers and fire in his belly to be the best, this is the story of how a dirt-poor child from Ferriday Louisiana scratched and clawed his method out of the dust to the bright lights of success, got knocked to his knees repeatedly, and climbed back up again. Jerry Lee Lewis has lived 80+ years on his own terms, celebrating his triumphs and overcoming his private tragedies, unbroken and unbowed. Only Rick Bragg could tell this story with such insight. Only he could understand the poverty and the desperate desire to BE somebody - because he has lived it, too. No other writer could have gotten this story from Jerry Lee Lewis himself, no other writer could have place the words together to convey it so perfectly. Congratulations, Mr. Bragg, for giving us the definitive biography of one of Louisiana's favorite sons!
It is well written and gives an insight to Jerry Lee that we all suspected but now have a better understanding of. It seems that he came into this globe determined to do what he wanted to do and was willing to pay the price to go through life his own way. Those who loved him were devastated but, again, what was necessary to him was doing his life his way. I liked the fact that he was not hypocritical about anything. He truly was in love with himself doing his music. He would disagree with us today if we called his life "a sad one".
If you were around in the late 1950s and hung with rock n roll trough the '70s, tapping your polished shoes to the AM radio and 45rpm record rhythms of Jerry Lee Lewis rocking-out to "Jerry Lee's Rock 'n Roll Revival Show," or "Little Queenie," and if you're have fun reading the works of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick Bragg, you need to own this 476-page and take the rest of the Winter reading it. Then RE-read it to obtain ALL the info of the either flying-or-crashing career of Jerry Lee, perhaps the most "off-the-hook rock & roll performer of the 1960s and '70s. Ok, so the era also had Chuck Berry and Small Richard, but Jerry Lee Lewis was an entity unto its own. Had he been a NASCAR driver, he'd have been the prototype for Dale Earnhardt Sr. Leave the tournament in the your dust and throw them an over-the-shoulder smirk. Reading this book will also cause you to load up on more of Bragg's books for those long Winter days.
I love Rick Bragg and only he could have told this story. The first third of the book, the early days of JLL, would have rated 5 stars, but I thought it dragged a bit in the middle and was a bit repetitive towards the end. In any case a worthwhile read for fans of Rick and/or Jerry Lee.
A complex character, a renegade, not your normal 'nice guy', loud, vulgar, drunken, drugged. What else? Oh yes, fascinating. I recalled only two of his songs, "shakin'" and "great balls"., but my interest drove me to Utube where I suddenly remembered what an exciting artist he was. As an Elvis fan, I take problem with his contention that he, not Elvis, was truly "The King". Nah, Jerry. Elvis was a better singer, and better looking, but from the standpoint of showmanship, you were (and still are) unparalleled. A must read for anyone who remembers (or who's interested in) the Memphis, Sun Records explosion of artists.
I found this book informative and a fun read. Lewis' life has had its ups and downs but this book comes across as very honest exposing both admirable and less than admirable aspects of this rock legend's life. It also was an informative look at growing up as a not good white boy in the racially segregated deep south.
As a distant relative of Jerry Lee, and a kid of the '50's, I've always wanted to know the "real" Jerry Lee. I met him in concert in WV around 1990 and all I had to do was mention a few family names, and the name of the local sheriff, and he asked me to accompany him while he signed autographs for his a lot of fans. He was AMAZING while thanking each and every one of them for their attendance and admiration. He was genuine to the core, and that is reflected on every page of this well written bio. I would love to have the opportunity to sit with him and share his inner thoughts, but this is probably the closest I will ever get. Though, I may go see him at the ranch on one of my trips through Mississippi, on my method to Louisiana. Finally, if you are a Jerry Lee Lewis fan, this book is a MUST read!
Basically I thought this was a amazing book, quite informative. The descriptions were generally well written though sometimes a small overdone, but we are talking about Jerry Lee Lewis here. This is the only bio I've read on Jerry Lee thus far.
This is a fabulous read, capturing in full the passionate, lusty, roiling, appetite-driven life Jerry Lee has led from his earliest years. The story never flags, and neither does the writing. Just as Jerry Lee's playing and singing are inimitable, his oral recollections as conveyed by Rick Bragg are too. Like Jerry Lee, the book is simply exciting. The narrative is created even richer by the highly detailed context Bragg gives for so a lot of aspects of Jerry Lee's life, including everyday life in Ferriday during the Depression and after, life in the honky tonks and blues bars, life in the extended Lewis clan, life on the road, and life in the studio. In fact, the book could be subtitled "The A lot of Lives Of Jerry Lee Lewis".
I ordered this book along with my ice cream machine. After all, who doesn't love Ben & Jerry's? I had bought the pint containers from the grocery shop as a unique treat; now I can create my favorite flavors at home.I started out by making the French vanilla. It was amazing and creamy. I also have created coffee, peach, butter pecan, latest night created chocolate, and am looking forward to making my favorite, coffee Heath bar crunch. All have worked out well. The butter pecan is the best butter pecan I've ever tasted, by e recipes are extremely simple — no cooking, no pre-chilling in an ice bath, no separating whites and yolks of eggs — all processes I've found in other ice cream books. It's surprisingly simple for the product you y of the classic Ben & Jerry recipes, such as Cherry Garcia, are found here.What will I test next? There are some amazing looking cantaloupes at the fruit stand and that recipe intrigues me.I'd recommend this book to all ice cream makers, from the novice to the connoisseur.
LOVE THIS BOOK! It is amazing ice cream, and very simple to make. I took choc, strawberry and vanilla to a party, and every one love it, and why not? It is Ben and Jerry. Hello :) I end up giving the left overs away. I even create ice cream for my dogs, but I used coconut milk and cream instead of milk and massive cream in the French Vanilla recipe. Next time I will test use agave instead of sugar. I test the coconut ice cream and it was great. I am lactose intolerant, so will work for me too. I used one can each of coconut milk and coconut cream. Buy it you will love it!
Ok, this book is amazing and worthy of the hype. I've created several of the recipes using our Breville ice cream maker, and they're all perfect and relatively very simple / quick to at said, we also bought two other books -- "The Excellent Scoop" and "Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones." The recipes in those books call for a various type of "base," in which you heat the cream, use egg yolks (instead of entire eggs or no eggs), etc. In turn, that type of base leads to a creamier, smoother ice cream. So, when I have the time, I create the base from one of the other books, while using the "flavoring" parts of the recipes from this book. Either way, I seriously couldn't go back to buying or eating store-bought ice cream after making the ice creams in this book.
OK, so there are enough reviews on this book to give you hours of opinions, BUT, I am holding this book up versus several others to tell my perspective.When I bought my Cuisinart ice cream machine, I researched all the ice cream books, and ended up with four, Ben & Jerry's, and 3 others. After browsing the Ben & Jerry book, I had a few concerns, like uncooked eggs. It was also missing most of the typical Ben & Jerry flavors. I started out with the other books, and found myself scratching my head over some of the vague instructions, including obtuse measurements like "2 huge peaches." Some recipes require a huge number of cooking steps and processes, adding more ambiguity, such as "medium heat," or "4 or 5 minutes."As time marched on, I discovered that EVERY recipe from Ben & Jerry's was a success, while most of the others were either outright failures or disappointments. I believe the cause of this is inadequate testing. That said, I also discovered that you must follow Ben & Jerry's recipes EXACTLY. The Georgia Peach was the best peach ice cream I've ever tasted, but I didn't like the frozen peach chunks, so I tried again, pureeing the peaches. Changed the whole thing, and left me with an off-taste. Next time, I will just cut the pieces smaller. The chocolates are fabulous. The Kiwi Sorbet is fantastic.Another difference in other books is the desire to provide recipes that can be created any time, hence the use of frozen and/or canned fruits. IMHO, just doesn't work. Another caveat, learning about different ingredients can greatly affect the quality and taste of your ice cream. For example, in my area, you cannot search massive cream that is not ultrapasteurized, a heating process that changes the consistency and flavor, but adds a substantial amount of time to the shelf life. It also invites the addition of chemicals to re-thicken the cream, one being carragenan, which those of us with a sensitivity to MSG cannot tolerate. So, I buy my ingredients carefully. For example, Trader Joe's has two brands of unadulterated e bottom line: If you don't like using raw eggs, skip this book, but if you wish simple, amazing tasting ice cream at home, snap this one up.
The recipes in this cook book are simple to follow, even if you have zero cooking experience. You just need an ice cream maker and access to a amazing grocery shop with a lot of dozens to acquire some of the ingredients – this is amazing if you are looking for something other than your usual vanilla / chocolate or plain ice cream recipes.
This book has been my go-to for favorite standard flavors and is a amazing launching point for my personal, inspired flavor creations. I have the Cuisinart Compressor Ice Cream Maker which works perfectly. I looked at a bunch of recipe books, even bought a few, but honestly stick with Ben & Jerry's. I use totally free-range, organic eggs and have had no issues with bacteria. Happy, healthy hens produce better tasting, safer eggs. I hold looking for the eggs in a carton that are pasteurized in a method that doesn't create them useless for ice cream, but I can't search them where I live. I guess I will test the cooked custard-type of ice cream but it's such a lot of problem compared to Ben & Jerry's recipes. Bottom line is this is a amazing book for your ice cream making efforts. Begin here.
I have never created ice cream before I bought this book. The recipes are SO easy, so basic, a beginner would have no issue making these recipes. If you like Ben & Jerry's ice cream, you will be very satisfied to know that these recipes taste exactly like the store-bought ice cream. The hot fudge recipe is the MOST delicious, awesome hot fudge I have ever had, and it takes no corn syrup. They even contain small stories about Ben, Jerry, and their brand. It's adorable and I love this book.
I've been using some of the basics now several time and love my ice cream. I am fresh to home created ice cream. I so much missed hazelnut ice cream which started my journey. After some you tube videos on it and this book with the primary foundation, I created the best hazelnut ice cream I've ever had and that is a huge deal to me. So, thanks for this book. Lots more to discover but got to be careful not to gain weight eating all this unbelievable home created ice cream, a risky path.
If you're wanting to create homemade ice cream (from scratch), then this book is for you!It's very little so it doesn't feel overwhelming. There is a amazing dozens of recipes and I have found myself about to search the right base to use with whatever mix-ins I wish (the sweet cream base with butterfinger bits is AMAZING).Ice cream stays well in the freezer (though a batch has yet to latest for more than a few days for me).Recipes are perfectly sized for my 3 quart Cuisinart ice cream maker. Will be buying as bonuses in the future.
Simple to follow recipes and they taste great. We have created vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter with chocolate, all were yummy and better than shop bought ice cream. Will test the more complicated flavors next such as peanut brittle, cherry garcia, and mint.
I really liked this Book, I thought it was really well written; and I could not place it down. I also wanted to search out what the story was that really happened, since I missed a lot of it. A quote, PAGE # 5 READS: ' A DEEP DIRTY SECRET HAD BEEN FESTERING IN THE MUCK FOR 15-YEARS, IT WOULD RISE TO THE SURFACE AND EXPLODE.'! PAGE #6 'THE ACTS OF DEFENSIVE COACH (JERRY SANDUSKY) ANDTHE INACTION OF LEGENDARY JOE PATERNO, AS WELL AS MIKE MC QUEARY, AND TIM CURLY WOULD RUIN LIVES; AND DAMAGETHE PEACEFUL UNIVERSITY TOWN OF 'HAPPY VALLEY.' I feel poor for any of the victims who had their lives impacted, and his wife whoseems like a very sweet person.
Disappointing. After you've read 1/3 of the book, you've read the entire book! Can't remember the latest time I've read a book so repetitious. There's an entire chapter towards the end which is basically a transcript of Joe Paterno's memorial service. Can we say "filler?" Plus, note the date. This book was rushed into publication, It ends before Sandusky goes to trial.
"Game Over" gives an indepth and thorough review of what was wrong at Penn State. It shows clearly how the most strong people at the university allowed Jerry Sandusky to engage in abuse of kids over a long period when it could have been stopped earlier. It provides amazing insight into the culture of sports mania and idolatry. The lessons learned from this experience should go along method to prevent a repetition of this kind of behavior.
When you consider the fact that this story still hasn't completely played out - three Penn State administrators have yet to see their day in court - the title is somewhat sensationalized. (I don't know whether Mr. Moushey had anything to do with the title.) Mr. Moushey injected his opinion at times - you couldn't resist the jab at JoePa during his memorial service, huh? - but it is his book.
This book was very well written, and informative. I went to high school with Bill Moushey so maybe I am biased! It told the story in a well balanced way, totally presenting all the facts in the case. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to know what really happened at Penn State.
If everything is real in the book then more things should have been looked into - the Second Mile, whys that Paterno did not follow through instead of leaving the higher ups do their thing - this according to the person that I bought this book for.
In November 2011, former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on multiple charges of sexually abusing young boys for well over a decade. In this well-written book, authors Bill Moushey and Bob Dvorchak take up the case from the very beginning and follow it through until Sandusky's e first acc of any wrong-doing by Sandusky occurred in 1998. Despite being created aware of the incident, the higher-ups at Penn State turned a deaf ear, and Sandusky's assaults continued. Then in 2002, assistant football coach Mike McQueary came upon Sandusky abusing a young boy in the shower. McQueary first told his father of the incident, then he told head coach Joe Paterno. But this was just the beginning of a heavy cover-up by the athletic director, vice president and president. Despite being created aware of this (and future) episodes, Sandusky was allowed to continue his reign of terror uninterrupted. Finally, an investigation by Pennsylvania officer Joe Leiter eventually blew the lid off of this not good is book includes info from the very beginning of the scandal up to the time of Sandusky's arrest and the death of Joe Paterno. The chilling theme throughout the book is how Sandusky was able to obtain away with his actions for so long. Through his charity known as The Second Mile, Sandusky befriended troubled youth and eventually gained their trust. He often showered them with bonuses until he deiced he could sexually abuse them. All the while, the Penn State administration failed to protect these young boys.I've followed the Sandusky case closely, and I found "Game Over" to be a helpful resource to understanding the climate of indifference at Penn State. The book is full of facts, and each step in the Sandusky timeline is discussed. Readers with interest in the Sandusky saga should read "Game Over". Highly recommended.
