Top Mafia hit man. Doting father. For 30 years, Richard 'the Ice Man' Kuklinski led a double life beyond anything ever seen on The Sopranos, becoming one of the most notorious professional assassins in American history while hosting neighbourhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Kuklinski was Sammy 'the Bull' Gravano's partner in the killing of Paul Castellano, John Gotti hired him to kill his neighbour and he was also intimately involved in the killing of Jimmy Hoffa. He conducted this sadistic business with cold-hearted intensity, never disappointing his customers. For an additional price, he would make his victims suffer. By his own estimate, he killed over 200 men, taking enormous pride in his cunning and the ferocity of his technique. The Ice Man is a blood-chilling insight into the mind of one of the world's most prolific contract killers.

19th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published book Awards Author: Donald R. Loedding title: The Search For The Bearded Clam Category: Nonfiction Judge: 54 Scale 1-5 with 5 Excellent\ Structure and Organization: 5 Grammar: 5 Judge’s commentary: This collection of personal experiences, droll tales of somewhat less accuracy, and a wide-ranging series of mini-editorials, journal entries, and other free-ranging commentary on a multitude of subjects is likely to engage the sustained interest of many readers. The author is remarkably candid and writes in an earthy fashion that’s often quite humorous. The smorgasbord of subjects takes in sex and love, parents and children, radiological warfare and waste, geological surveys, field trips, living and working in Latin America, Hawaii, the Olympic Games, etc. A good deal of practical information is woven into the material, and a full life is dissected in many small chapters.

A person that is not easily offended and just wants a good laugh will thoroughly enjoy this book. Along with the laughs are some truly heartfelt stories that will make you wanna cry. This collection of one man’s life adventures goes from the sublime to the ridiculous and it’s all true. Larch covers some serious topics and some for fun, all from his point of view based on seventy-five years of hands on experience and higher education of the bookish nature. A sense of humor and an open minded perspective is required of the reader, depending on the essay. This potpourri is for those who want a vicarious get away based on intelligent observations and a thumb-your-nose, can-do attitude against all odds and traditions. A fair mix of fact and fiction, he lets you know the difference. Go for it. Barnes&Noble This book is one of the most entertaining I have read in a long time. It’s not often you come across one that will make you laugh, cry and cuss all at the same time. So many of the stories are ones that you wish were you own to tell. Then there is some that if it was a movie you’d have to cover your eyes. You haven’t lived till you have read chapter three of The Search For The Bearded Clam! A very interesting and entertaining mixture of fact, fiction, and knowledge are in these short stories and articles. He has apparently had far from a boring life! With his wits, humor, vocabulary, and sensitivity, he could describe a crack of dawn as the most beautiful experience of nature or as a fat woman wearing hip huggers. You don’t know what to expect when you start reading a selection from this book. Great reading! Read it and get to know who he is.

From Hiroshima to the Iceman: The Development and Applications of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry presents a fascinating account of a breakthrough in science and the insights it has brought that would not have been possible without it. Involved since its invention, Harry Gove recounts the story of the development of accelerator mass spectrometry and its use as an ultrasensitive detection technique in many fields of science and the arts. A key advantage of the technique is that it requires only very small samples of material. The book explores the areas where the technique has increased understanding and provided solutions to problems, including the clean-up and storage of nuclear waste, the effects of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, biomedical research, the settling of the Americas, and carbon dating of many precious artifacts. Objects dated include the Turin Shroud, the Iceman, the elephant bird egg, and the Dead Sea scrolls.
