I have not read any of Bly's books and I'm sorry that I missed them. I seriously do not have a clue where this book came from... it just showed up in my mail box. I get so many books because of my review blog that I have had to write down those that I actually order. I do not remember ordering this one.
Janet, Bly's wife is a famous author in her own right. The book is good, even if there were several that went before this one. I didn't feel left out at the beginning, and that is a huge thing. You can find out more about them here.

I think there’s a cover-up going on . . . I’ll contact you there. T.R. How could he refuse a request from the President of the United States? Read More…
