About Author

Ramsey Dean is one of the more recognizable names in the music business, where his career has been a lifelong study of teen culture and cool kids. After graduating college and unable to get a job in the literary field, the Alphabet City denizen pursued his other passion, scoring a job at a record label and over the years inadvertently specializing in the music of the moment, working with Metallica, Megadeth, Guns n' Roses, Anthrax, Slayer, Poison, White Zombie, Pantera, Sick of it All, Ignite, Jane's Addiction, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, KMFDM, Marilyn Manson, Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon, Ja Rule, Dashboard Confessional, Taking Back Sunday, Silverstein, Hawthorne Heights, Atreyu, Bayside, Thursday and hundreds and hundreds of other bands along the way.

Rising through the label ranks, his passion for writing only increased, cranking out novels, screenplays, short stories, and sketch comedy, where he graduated to see his work performed on the famed Second City stage in Chicago. As his writing style garnered a following with the music audience, along with many of the artists he worked with and their fans, he finally had the opportunity to release his debut novel.

In The CoolKids: An Emotional Hardcore Odyssey (Or The Pros and Cons of Maintaining Veganity in an Increasingly Carnivorous World) Ramsey takes his rich past and creates a reality based on the timeless commonalities that each generation of would-be revolutionaries possess as well as the special quirks that make each subsequent generation thoroughly original and at the same time hopelessly cliché. If you understand the title of this novel, you'll certainly enjoy what's inside.

My Thoughts

Albert Einstein as a child had an active imagination to say the least. He would day dream and dream while sleeping.  He would dream of adventures like riding on a beam of light.  He would use his imagination to follow the beam of ride light through the Universe and beyond.  He came up with some earth changing ideas thanks to his imagination.  He would write all of his ideas down then continue to contemplate on the ideas.  

The author takes young Albert as a role model and explains to children how their imagination can take them anywhere they wish to go.  He encourages children to dream big.  Yes, follow your dreams!  From things I have heard and pictures I have seen Albert Einstein he must have been a fun person to be around even as a child.  I enjoyed the story very much and I am most certain children will enjoy the story also.  The illustrations were fun, brilliant  in colors and imagination.  It's apparent to me, the author and illustrator have been inspired by young Albert!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from JSK Communications for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  This review is my honest opinion.
