Reviews

""Jeff Kass comes closer than anyone in explaining this national tragedy that is Columbine. His discussions with Hunter S. Thompson in the kitchen over the years revealed his depth of research and wisdom of this complex story, which he finally unmasks, a decade later in""Columbine: A True Crime Story"." --Anita Thompson, wife of the late Hunter S. Thompson, author of""The Gonzo Way
""It was the kind of tragedy that defined a genuine breakdown of social cohesion in the late nineties. America and guns go back a long way, as Hunter used to remind me, and demonstrate. But this was a lack of imagination, a cold assessment of cause and effect, devoid of compassion and the action of severely damaged psyches which could never have been introduced to the ramifications of consequence. Unfortunately, these kids have had many role models, filmic but very real demonstrations from "A Clockwork Orange "onwards on which to base their ideas. I reckon that the senseless motive for violence heightens the sick thrill of the act." --Ralph Steadman, author, """The Joke's Over: Bruised Memories: Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson, and Me
""Could this happen here? The day after Columbine I was asked that question from parents, faculty, school administrators, students and police officers in Aspen. "Columbine: A True Crime "story answers all questions about the killers, the families, and victims of one of the most iconic school shootings in this nation's history and more." --Pitkin County, CO, Sheriff Bob Braudis""
""Kass has created a tour-de-force explaining not just Columbine, but the roots of all teen violence--not just an accounting of facts, but a sordid, painful, and in the end, hopeful tale that draws us in and won't let go. It will remain with you long after the pages become dog-eared and weathered." --Paul Dobransky, M.D., psychiatrist and first responder to Columbine""
