4.0 out of 5 stars As always....., December 11, 2009
there are exceptions to the rules. The 10,000 hour rule is fascinating, and makes sense. Although, Malcolm uses Bill Gates and several other prominent masters of their fields, what's left out is that all of them had ACCESS. They were people who knew people, or by family proxy. Good for them, but sucks for the rest of us who don't have the hook-ups. One has to plow through all the nonsense to get ahead.

10000 Hours = 1.14079553 Years

Include sleeping and other activities (life in general), and you're looking at about 5 years to "master" something.

I'm gonna re-read it again, it's a pretty good read, but that last portion of the book is really boring, and low energy compared to the excellent first half, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Kompendium gets it right., December 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: KISS Kompendium (Hardcover)
Back in high school I collected all of the Kiss comics that were produced by Todd McFarlane, I lost track of the latter issues, and when I was ready to scoop them up, they changed creative teams, and finally Dark Horse took over.

I gave up, so to my surprise when I saw this on Amazon for pre-order, I knew it would be mine, and would fill in the gaps that were missing in my collection.

I have not read the entire book yet, but you know you're in for a treat when you see the UPS guy struggle to carry this thing. It is MASSIVE!

I wonder if Gene and Paul will have signings for this book once they finish up the tour? For a $50 dollar book (it's $75 at your local retailer), it would make perfect sense to do so.

Btw, if you have a Kiss Army member in your family, here you go, your holiday shopping is complete.

HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is perfect for those wishing to negotiate distribution rights. Whether you want to sell your project to overseas buyers, or how much you should get for dvd rights, etc...

The author is a former Lucasfilm employee who knows his stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars ooooops., November 24, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I thought this was the actual suite, not the upgrade, I have the regular MAC edition, so I thought I would upgrade to the business edition, but I picked the wrong product.

Unless I get the initial business version, this upgrade will be useless to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Troma universe, November 24, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I needed a laugh, so I scooped up the Troma way of making films. Remember Roger Corman? Same principle.

For budding filmmakers, it is slightly recommended, mainly because it's funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Film and philosphy in one, November 19, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Okay, it does give spoilers on all of the Coen Brother's films, so just skip to the films you have seen. This book is for film and philosophy lovers alike.

There are also pretty cool drawings through out the book. They have that Tim Bradstreet quality to them.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Wow, they kind of went all out. This stompbox looks like a real stompbox for a real guitar.

If you want some effects pedals for your rockband game, this will work nicely.
