It's exactly what it says it isn't. Or is. A hilarious take on a very addicting game that is solely based on mechanical actions. Or not.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rex, I can't frickin' stand your book., April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
But really I didn't mind it. It's a book that is very easy to read and if you loved Pantera, you'll eat this book up.

As you can see I only gave it two stars. I know what you are thinking -- IT IS PANTERA, DUDE. HOW CAN YOU GIVE SOMETHING WRITTEN BY
ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE HOLIEST OF HOLIES TWO STARS? Hold on. Unfortunately this book has a lot of... issues. Especially with Vinnie Paul.

The title of my review is play on the first words of the book -- "Dime, I cannot stand your &&&&ing brother..." This sets the tone for the rest of the book.
At every opportunity Rex puts down Vinnie Paul, Dime, and sometimes Phil. At one point in the book he calls VP a Fat A** four times in a span of two pages. Seriously?

Rex comes across as completely arrogant - A trait of Rock Stars that I've come to accept, so I really didn't mind when he'd say things like "I would only practice because
I thought the other's needed it." That's fine, in my opinion.

So it comes down to this, according to Rex:
Vinnie Paul - A fat, moronic, sexual predator that attempts to blindly grope the second hand women that would be suckered onto
the tour bus after everyone else had taken their pick. He also drove Pantera into the ground nearly single-handedly by booking
tons of shows on tours. Oh and he's fat, right?

Phil - Couldn't put his clothes on without a needle in his arm. Great dude unless he was drunk or high, which is all the time. Only reason
he got clean was because of Katrina stealing all the heroin.

Dime - A mental midget with tons of bad ideas but fortunately could play a little blues guitar at a fast tempo. Apparently if Dime couldn't play
guitar he'd have been drooling on the side of the road homeless.

Rex - Had his problems, but was the rock. The immovable object that Pantera depended on. Never paid for drugs in his life cause that is low.

I know that you are probably thinking I'm being critical (and as one person pointed out on a forum "HE QUALIFIES EVERYTHING HE SAYS AND PICKS AT HIMSELF TOO".. Which he does at the end
of the book, and only because he probably realized he just burned every bridge he could featuring Pantera) but Rex just has this crazy hatred that comes out in this book.
I thought VP had issues with Phil... That's almost laughable if you read this book.

Go ahead, pick this book up. If you don't want to completely sour your perfect memories of Pantera (I am guilty of this) -- Then just read the notes after the last chapter. Otherwise,
I'd take this book with a grain of salt.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unapologetic look at music., April 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a member of the Indiana chapter of the Black Label Society, I found this book to be
required reading.

Zakk takes you on a tongue-in-cheek (or tongue in anus, as Zakk would probably call it..) adventure
through the music business and the Black Label Society. The humor may not be for everyone.
It is full of swearing and homosexual references, but people that love this type of music and
understand the character of Zakk Wylde will fully grasp the humor involved.

Zakk lovingly molests you through several chapters versing from what a Berserker is to the history of the
Black Vatican to how to survive while on tour as a musician. The stories shared in this book are worth the
price of admission! To find out the music business IS as bad as everything thinks it is, well that's priceless.

A hilarious read, I very well suggest this book to anyone that bleeds Black Label. Or Rock 'n Roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT book about an awesome dog!, April 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this for my mother, but I also ended up reading this book.

It's a wonderful story that grips you in the heart from the beginning to the end.
It is very well written and easy to read. As an owner of a dachshund, I was naturally
driven to read this book, but I'm certain any lover of animals will find this book
and Sasha to be an excellent read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Revan I remember, November 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Revan. A character that made a lasting impact on me when I was a child. Knights of the Old Republic (video game) was every bit as good as any
book I have ever read and the characters are every bit as memorable as anything I have ever read, watched, or played. With Star Wars: The Old Republic
on the horizon, I was very excited when the book "Revan" was released. Finally, I get to see what happened to the hero of the Republic!

From the start I realized that this book was hastily done and with barely any regards to how the characters actually were in the video game. Revan is not
portrayed as a charismatic bad-ass Jedi that has seen both sides, in this book he is portrayed as a wimp that can't figure out what happened in his past.

Most of the book follows Lord Scourge, a Sith Lord that is every bit whiny 12 year old as he is turncoat. I didn't buy this book to read about a Sith Lord named
Scourge, but that is what you get.

The story is stretched thin and while cohesive it is flat and boring. This does not have the spark that the Darth Bane series had. It is not "Jedi Academy" bad, but
it isn't even close to licking the heels of the Darth Bane Trilogy.

In retrospect this book does not live up to KOTOR or even Drew's past achievements and for this being one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe is nothing
less than a tragedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected., June 11, 2010
So I was more than a little nervous about ordering these headphones. I ordered them before I checked all the reviews based on the strength of past purchases from Bose. (I have the over-ear headphones and the Wave Radio.) While I was checking the order status I decided to check a few reviews... I was a little dismayed.

Let me put your mind to ease about some of the past negative reviews. I have had them for a week now and I use them when I exercise.

The Silicone tips that it seems everyone that writes a negative review about is completely overblown. If they had problems with them in the past, the ones I received have had this issue dealt
with nicely. They came with 3 different styles of tips and they were secured on the earphone nicely.

I started with the medium tips but it felt like it might come out of my ear, so I changed to the large tips and they fit snugly into the bowl of my ear. These DO NOT go into the ear canal. If they are, you are using them wrong. (Somehow.) I use the clip that came with them and I have not had them come dislodged or even feel like they are coming out of my ears. Very nice.

The sound quality - The website expressly tells you that these bring out lush bass sounds. To me it was a bit bassy, but that is what an EQ is for. After I changed the EQ on my IPod to accomodate the extra bass brought out by these earphones, the sounds is excellent. Exactly what I would expect from a Bose product.

Durability - These appear very well made and like I said earlier, the silicone tips are secured on the earphone tightly. If these fall off you aren't putting the piece on all the way.

While they aren't the Quiet Comfort headphones (nor do they claim to be) these are much better than I expected after reading the reviews and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to upgrade from the standard ipod earphones.
