Book Description

Pressure? Did anyone say Pressure? “Big Daddy” Abel wears his heart on his sleeve, and has his “real” heart in the right place. He lays himself emotionally naked for us to read, ponder and absorb. This, is real, at times all too real. Be prepared; guard yourself, as “Big Daddy” takes you for a “real” ride into his real mind, real heart and real soul.
Hi! Introductions may be in order, yes? Only proper thing to do I think. I am Big Daddy Abel. A singer, guitar player, & entertainer. Usually my "job" is to entertain. Getting people to laugh, dance and sing and just have a good fun time. However, at times... my mind goes beyond that. It goes a little deeper and sometimes, as I've been told, a little TOO deep, (I used to be a school teacher in my former life. Shhh! Don't tell anyone.) Thank you for giving/sharing your time here with "my thoughts". I hope you feel something positive on the other end of it all.
One of Big Daddy Abel favorite quotes “"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future."
Here are some of his favorite bands/musicians: Van Halen (1976-1984), The Beatles, Aerosmith (1973-1989), The Black Crowes, Prince, Seal, Led Zeppelin, Butch Walker/The Marvelous 3, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Alice in Chains, Love/Hate, Buckcherry, The Cure, George Clinton, Mozart, Electric Mayhem, The Soggy Bottom Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fishbone, Too Much Joy, Beethoven, the kid down the street learning guitar.

Look, if you made it to Volume Three in this series, you don't need me to tell you this is fine summer reading for any Amish Outlaws fan (or music fan, really.) I recommend reading the first two prior to jumping into this one. As a trilogy, they play off each other well, yet remain solid standalone works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely keeps you wanting MORE! May 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So, I am not much of a book reader, although I should be. But when BDA came out with his first volume, I debated on reading it..more so because I didn't know exactly what it was about and I have to be interested in the topic to really get into it. So, I gave it a shot..I purchased Volume one and started to read it. (It was actually when I was at work on someone's Kindle, LOL)...I didn't want to put it down..I kept reading and reading..and by that time the Volume Two was already out (because I was a little behind on the books)...But right after I read Volume one, I went onto Volume two..I have to say they were great!! It's almost like you block things out around you to focus on his book...I honestly couldn't wait for Volume three to come out and glad it did =) You really have to read this! And if you haven't done so yet, read the Volumes one and two as well. BDA is so down to earth, whether it be going to his shows, talking to him in person-whom is awesome and funny, or reading his great books! You won't be disappointed, I promise. This is real stuff that he's talking about..I can't wait for more! Keep the Volumes coming BDA and keep me interested.

I found "Open Mic Volume 3" to be a little more serious (probably because of this installment's subject, "pressure") than the previous Open Mic's 1 and 2, BUT installment #3 is still just as funny, insightful and informative! And whenever I need to consider another persons view point I now have a visual which I know will be helpful. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-Pressure Reading May 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After having read Open Mic Volume 1, Open Mic Volume 2, and "The Jersey Shore Has Eyes" by Big Daddy Abel (the latter's a collaboration with Giovanni Gelati) and enjoying them tremendously, I of course was looking forward to reading Open Mic Volume 3. I once again was not disappointed. One part that Big Daddy Abel discussed brought me back to my days in jr. high, and as I read, I found myself hysterical with laughter many times with the way he brings his feelings/thoughts across. He is a very talented person, and reading through his perspective, one can't help but NOT enjoy reading his books. So, don't miss out on this latest installment by BDA. It is non-pressure reading, as are all his previous releases.

Keep 'em coming, Abel, I'm always looking forward to more.^_^

So after reading Open Mic 1&2 I went and read Open Mic 3 and I must say part 3 was just as good as the first 2!!! BDA hits home with his topics and his story's and it is very hard to stop reading once you start that's how GREAT his work is so I suggest all 3 of these to be a great read!!Keep up the GREAT work BDA can't wait for Open Mic 4!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars He does it again.... June 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little e-book is a fast and exciting read!! He did a great job of getting into the mind of the reader (well, my mind, at least)! BDA writes precisely. He writes to the point. His sentences are crisp and clean. He eschews similes and metaphors, preferring the raw truths of things simply said.
