Book Review: The Powerful Little Real Estate Book by Dave Watts

I recently read The Powerful Little Real Estate Book: Tips & Strategies for Accumulating Wealth by Dave Watts. Unfortunately, I didn’t care for this slim book about real estate investing. My biggest problem with it is the poor formatting. I spotted 10 or more formatting errors, where words are placed next to each other with no space in between them. This makes for a very distracting reading experience and it causes the reader to wonder if an editor was even hired to review this book before it was published.

Book Review: The Adventures of the Real Tom Sawyer

Thomas B. Sawyer has led an extraordinary life. With a name like Tom Sawyer, how could he not?! From illustrating comic strips to being the head writer of Murder, She Wrote, Tom’s autobiography, The Adventures of the Real Tom Sawyer, is a delightful memoir that takes the reader through all of the interesting moments in Tom’s life. Punctuated with humor and wit, reading this book felt like I was having a cup of coffee with Tom while he told me fascinating stories about his impressive career. If you’re a lover of writing, film, TV, or simply entertainment, Tom’s autobiography is absolutely worth reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I believe you will too.

A Bachelor Party For The Ages

When the best man in my wedding, my cousin Chris, asked me what I’d like to do for my bachelor party, I told him I wanted to attend Gene Simmons’ June 2 concert and do a VIP meet and greet with him on June 3 at Wizard World in Philadelphia. It all happened, and it far exceeded my expectations.
