My review of The Whites of Their Eyes: Bunker Hill, the First American Army, and the Emergence of George Washington via the Amazon Vine program is available at Amazon.com here. Considering all the Palin/Revere stuff lately it's not a bad idea to actually read some history instead of relying on poetry for yours.
My review of Neptune's Inferno the US Navy at Guadalcanal via the Amazon Vine program is available at Amazon.com here. It's quite a story, and a reminder that there was a time when war meant the death of thousands at a time.

My review of the Schick Hydro 5 Blade Razor via the Amazon Vine program is available here. This razor and review is the reason why you will not see my normal beard at Blogcon this year. You really wouldn't think a razor would draw 126 comments on Amazon would you?
My review through the Amazon vine program of the children book Sweet Farts: Rippin' it old School is available at Amazon.com here. This is actually the second book in a series by author Raymond Bean. If you have young kids it will certainly appeal to them.
One of the things that I've noticed in my time in the Amazon Vine program is the idea of the program is to generate buzz for a book that may nor may not sell otherwise. When Sarah Palin's book was due out, it was not available in the vine program, Michelle Malkin's books don't show … Continue reading Keith Olberman dying on the (Amazon) vine

My review of R. Emmett Tyrrell's latest book through the Amazon Vine Program: After the Hangover the Conservatives' Road to Victory is available at Amazon.com here. After reading Tyrrell's book I see why Stacy McCain likes him so much and also why he spends so much effort to link and promote other conservative bloggers.

Once in a while they are rather exciting and people rush to get them, such as treadmills, computer servers and mp3 players. When those are up … Continue reading Amazon vine review: Secret Clinical Strength, Light and Fresh Scent-Advanced Solid
