Customer Reviews


Outstanding e-Book that covers Alcatraz extensively!

Having been there, I can tell you first-hand that this is the next best thing to actually taking the tour.

I found a few typos and small errors that I hope will be corrected at some point in the future (i.e. Chapter 10: "When eh got to Alcatraz" instead of "he" and p.44 "...involved in." Involved in what?, etc.). But overall, very nicely written and well done! Thank you Mark. I've recommended this book to numerous people. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
