I get the NY Times at home, and the Sunday Book Review arrives a day early. The book "One Way Out" entered the nonfiction best seller list at # 10, very impressive indeed for a music book, especially one about a band that is not at the top of the charts. Good news.

Thank you.

A great and rare honor... what it really points out is that my hunch that this could be bigger than the publisher realized was right on... People under-estimate the power of this band...The energy and interest around them right now is unreal...

MY WSJ Beacon preview was Top 5 viewed on their site that day and surprised the heck out of the editors I think.

They don't all know what we know.

Thanks for the support.

Congratulations. Just finished the book in 2 days, started in the daylight in my chair and noticed behind it was dark out. Couldn't stop. Went to bed last night and finished today.

Great, great book. Certainly the best one on the band and in their own words and masterfully put togther by Al.

Been following the band for 42 years, Read all the articles, read all the books, but One Way Out gave this fan so much more insight into each member and their feelings. Just amazed after reading this we are seeing them in their 45th year. A true testiment to the muisc rising above everything and thank God it did.

Important to note - Al's book is on the print bestseller list, so doesn't include ebook sales. I downloaded the book on kindle, as undoubtedly hundreds or thousands of others have as well, so the book is doing even better than what the list shows.

Congratulations Al! And thanks for a great read. Like many others who have written in, finished it in just over one sitting.

Congrats Al. I know that I said I was gonna wait until my library got it or wait for the next version but ended up buying it. Just finished it and I'm glad I picked it up. Great reading and it flows so well. nice to hear all the stories straight from the horses mouth so to speak. Nice job!
