    "I'm in denial, but I'm still hoping that the first five minutes of The New Danger were unintentional. Perhaps Mos Def, still lit after a performance of Top Dog/Underdog, wandered into the studio during Living Colour's reunion jamboree, recorded five minutes of talking, and walked out with some sort of leather-induced amnesia. How else to explain the jarring transition between Raphael Saadiq's floating keys on "The Boogie Man Song" and Dr. Know's hyper-machismo axe-wielding on "Freaky Black Greetings"? How to explain an awkward, ill-advised stumble through Durst-style rap-rock? After exactly five years of waiting for the follow-up to 1999's magnificent Black on Both Sides, Mos Def opens by rehashing the final minutes of "Rock 'n' Roll" with the less-than-subtle assistance of Black Jack Johnson. Mos, say it ain't so."

    "Do you enjoy reading like me? Are you a Dick Francis fan. If so, you need to get "For Kicks" It is a terrific suspense novel that happens to give insight into British racing, the class system and each and every character. While I have read all the Dick Francis books, this is the one that I go back to and reread every year or so. Its quiet, understated tone still builds up to suspense and excitement."

    "Dick Francis has the knack of drawing in the reader in the first few pages. This is no exception. By page three or so, I knew I didn't want to put it down. The story is complex without being unbelievable. The characters are exceptional without being implausible. A great balancing act makes for a great read."
