Stress, inconsiderate people, sweat, delays, really strange smells, massive crowds, wearying bureaucracy, funny conversations overheard, and startling things seen…these “joys” and more are the unavoidable facts of life for millions of commuters. Author Mike Lewis – writer, people person, observer of mankind, and fellow commuter – has regularly chronicled his adventures and gathered them into a collection of snarky, humorous, and informative observations and advice. Believing wholeheartedly that laughter can help us cope, this veteran of the Commuter Wars wants to help others get through their day. Random Commuter Observations (RCOs) turns a weary, exacerbated eye to the fun and revelry of commuting by showcasing funny cartoons and real-life headlines of commuting nightmares, combined with Mike’s pithy comments. RCOs is for all of us who trudge to work every day – whether by train, bus, or automobile – to serve as a remembrance of your daily adventures. Not.

We can count on one hand the musical legends equal to Elton John (the Beatles and the Rolling Stones each get a finger). Elton John: Fifty Years On looks at the impact songwriting partners Elton John and Bernie Taupin have had on popular music and culture, and also discusses every song on all thirty albums, plus his work on Broadway, in movies, and elsewhere. • Part 1 is a bullet-pointed look at every released song, complete with insights, trivia, and meanings, including musical insights—like Elton’s favorite chord progressions, or the most notable melodies in his discography. • Part 2 is a collection of essays and interviews with musicians and music writers chatting about Elton and Bernie. Did you know? · Elton and Bernie’s revision of “Candle in the Wind” (known as “Goodbye England’s Rose”), a tribute to Princess Diana after her untimely death, is the biggest-selling single in the UK and the second-biggest selling single in music history (after Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”). · “Tiny Dancer” may or may not be about Bernie Taupin’s wife, Maxine…quotes from Elton and Bernie contradict each other. · The biggest music stars in the world routinely show up at Elton John concerts to sing duets with the Rocket Man, including Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, George Michael, Bruce Hornsby, Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Adams, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, and many more, as well as Elton’s legendary “dual” shows with Billy Joel · The background vocals for the song “White Lady White Powder” on the 21 at 33 album are sung by the Eagles. · The background vocals for the song “Cage the Songbird” on the Blue Moves album are sung by Graham Nash and David Crosby. (Stephen Stills must have been busy?) Elton John: Fifty Years On was written for ultimate Elton John fans. A browsing book, a reading book, a treasure trove of facts, trivia, insights, and commentary, it’s the perfect companion to Elton leaving the Yellow Brick Road.
