Always be wary of books that get 5 stars, yet all the reviewers are written by "anonymous" and have no other reviews

Good but not as comprehensive as other available options
This book is a well written account of the authors experience as a student and friend of the assailants at the infamous shootings at Columbine High School. Interspersed with his own somewhat self-serving personal reflections of the incident and his personal experiences at this obviously liberal school, the author devotes attention to social environment (bullying, ostracism, and favoritism) that impacts the emotional well being of students (the only real strenght of the book).Was this review helpful?

The co-writer fills in some blanks with news accounts on the incident and immediately after.
If you want a more complete account of the entire Columbine incident I recommend the outstanding book "Columbine" by Dave Cullen. It is completely worth the extra cost. Then perhaps one would want to read "No Easy Answer"

Good read of insider perspective
Eye opening. Alarming to see how school authoritues are able to turn a blind eye to the peer on peer torture happening in thier classrooms. As a victim of school bullying i understand the daily anguish and attempt to mentally lose yourself while enduring this abuse on a daily basis. I commend the Brown parents for thier relentless quest for the truth. Thanks Brooks for telling your story and helping others deal with not being accepted. Shame on Sheriff Stone. May he never have a peaceful nights rest. His actions and there lack of make it easy to see how one cannot have faith in our justice system. Kodos to Micheal Moore. Another good Columbine read is that written by Dave Cullin. By the way... i am apalled at Charleton Heston. I did not realize he was such a heartless gun loving racist.
