Ink and paper is dead. Long live the e-book. This day has been dreaded by publishers and authors for a decade now. Much like the passing of a cherished relative, denial is inevitable. But the printed book’s death rattle is obvious for those who are paying attention.
Douglas Preston: “As for The Sixth Extinction, these chapters seriously piqued my interest. The characters are real, the science is convincing and disturbing, and the pacing is excellent. I really liked the ominous, looming sense of disaster. Dan Clifford, the expert in scientific prediction, could be a great series character. I think you have a winner. Please feel free to use my comments when your agent submits the book.”
Robert J. Bruss, Chicago Tribune: "The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home is the ultimate guidebook for do-it-yourselfers. The outline style keeps it moving at a fast pace so it doesn’t get bogged down with boring details, yet the text is so complete it answers most of the reader’s questions. On my scale of 1 to 10, this rates a solid 10.”
Jon Land: “Kent Lester's The Sixth Extinction races from one climax to another with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance. Evoking the best of Michael Crichton, Lester has fashioned a cautionary, prescient yarn that challenges us with facts splendidly woven into a fictional landscape. Simply stated, the best end-of-the-world thriller since Lucifer's Hammer and The Stand.”
Bill Demo, Library Journal: “A workbook in the fullest sense, The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home goes well beyond the crash courses in home building and words of encouragement of similar books. An exhaustive work, recommended for public libraries serving knowledgeable amateur builders.”
