4.0 out of 5 stars Glimmer-licious 11 Aug 2010
By Cornelia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to have this book after watching a Sunday morning TV segment about the author that featured his artwork. After conducting online research and reading about his "inspiration" for his art, I went straight to Amazon and ordered the book. The cover features one of his art prints. The interior pages are filled with a hodgepodge of information, some of which is quite bizarre . . . riddles, math problems, poetry . . . I had hoped that the artwork featured in the book would appear in color, but alas, the pages are black and white. Still, the mere sight of the book has generated some rather engaging conversation, especially after dinner (mood enhanced by a glass of ruby red wine). Like him or not, this author's book is, in my humble opinion, destined to become a collector's item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall, FANTASTIC 20 Jan 2011
By Priscila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Kevorkian basically covers everything in this book. From religion to diets, to art and music. Much like a fellow reviewer, I was disappointed to find that his paintings weren't in color and lacked quality, but their inclusion in the book is, nevertheless, worthy. It is definitely worth the extra $25 to get the hardcover. It's not too thick, but it is definitely long and wide, so paperback wouldn't suit me since I'm a little rough with my books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read! 13 May 2011
By InYourFaceNewYorker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for people who, like me, would love nothing more than to pick Dr. Jack Kevorkian's remarkable brain. This book contains his wonderfully disturbing paintings, papers from the research he did as a young man, dieting advice, philosophical pieces, sheet music of his compositions, and even a short autobiography! And did I mention his trademark limericks? They bring light to the "darkest" portions of this book. The only drawback is since this book was published by an independent publisher (well, of course Kevorkian, being fiercely independent himself, would go through an independent publisher!) in New York City with limited funds, the printing was done at a low resolution and looks pixelated. But no matter. The wonderfully intelligent and sometimes goofy content more than makes up for it, and it's a good peek into one of the greatest minds in the last century.

It's a hodge podge of different subject's and end's well. The doctor is very intelligent and insightful. A good overall read.

5.0 out of 5 stars a keepsake 13 July 2011
By CXC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Kevorkian is one of my heroes. I agree with so much of his philosophy... his remarks regarding our rights or lack thereof, and his compassion. I purchased the large book in hardcover because I want it to last. It is a keepsake to honor a special man. This book is an interesting compilation of his thoughts, his wisdom, his music, his art, his idiosyncrasies(we all have 'em). I recommend the book because it reveals a very interesting, courageous and important man. As so many others, I am not afraid to die; I am afraid to live in pain! Who will follow in his footsteps?
