Some events in history are so obscured by legend that hardly anybody knows how things really happened. Some legends are self-perpetuating and facts get ignored by certain authors or are unknown to them. In chronicling history, it appears to be sufficient to parrot what somebody else said to the point that the truth just appears as footnotes.

Smashwords book reviews by Alf B. Meier

  • Technological Cures for Global Warming on April 30, 2011

    To start with, one cannot but applaud any initiative to keep our planet beautiful. Whether the recipes are a little too simplistic or not is, at least on second sight, irrelevant. Much more important is that there is a conscience forming effort. Kudos for that.
  • Lunch Time Surprise on May 01, 2011

    Quite an entertaining conversation in the first lines, that in itself makes it worth to read this book.
  • Holidays With Sundae: Conversations With My Cat on May 08, 2011

    Sundae is a reflective and intelligent feline, a unique calico. When James, her human, realizes Sundae can converse, his life changes drastically. Thanks in part to MTV, Sundae has amassed a remarkable vocabulary. She and her human companion discuss everything from love to war. No topic is off-limits and the kitty has plenty of questions (for him) about life. Cleverly focusing on holidays, the tongue-in-cheek story moves along smoothly and effortlessly. Holidays with Sundae: Conversations with My Cat is a delightful read.
  • What You Should Know Before You Hire a Book Designer on May 15, 2011

    Short, informative and straight on the head of the nail. If most self publishing authors would have read this book, designing their cover and graphics would be so much easier.
  • The V-8 on May 30, 2011

    There are some things associated with certain myths that makes it difficult to poke fun of them, a task masterfully performed by Ernest Winchester.
