From the moment I began reading this author's collection of personal essays, I could not put it down. Anyone who is a fan of music, television, movies....or all the above can appreciate and find a relatable stoy in Hello, It's Me. There are some moments that will have you lauging and others that will bring tears to your eyes. It really is a full service ride through the pop culture of the past 30 or more years, told through the memories of a true fan. So this is definitely one to pick up, and odds are it will have you remembering some of your own experiences. Ahhh, memories.

Hello, It's Me: will definitely take you on an adventure! Chris Epting has the charm to make him (and his wonderful family) likeable to any reader! You won't want to put this book down! He allows the reader to grow up right beside him. To be caught up in the magic and the awe that can only be viewed through a child's eyes. To be nervous and excited along with him as a teenager. To be speechless and appreciative as a young adult, and to 'live the dream' as adult. (Believe me, I'd be pinching my self, too!) The book takes you on a wonderful journey. You feel the mischief, the butterflies, the grief, the fun. Chris has an uncanny ability to draw the reader in; you feel what he felt and you re-live your own memories while he tells his tales! Such an astounding compilation of one-of-a-kind stories and unforgettable memories! Hello, It's Me: is laced with tidbits on cultural icons of the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's that would never had been made known if not for Chris witnessing them before his very eyes. The 'Reflections' were an unexpected bonus! Chris not only tells an amazing story, he also gives you "the other side" of said stories through the 'Reflections' sections, an awesome idea that truly pays off. These unique experiences with some truly outstanding people range from short and sweet and pure luck, to deep and personal and heartfelt. I cannot say enough great things about this book. You'll cheer Chris on in his 'Norman Mailer' bit. You'll laugh out loud to the 'Woody, Ack and Rod' story and you'll shed a few tears to 'Dog, Gone.' --That's a lot to say, coming from someone who's generally not a dog person!-- Lastly, his final piece on 'The Rev' is truly heartfelt and hit home with me, a story that I will treasure foREVer. Thank you, Chris for allowing me to sit beside you on this wild ride that is your life. And to the reader who is undecided on purchasing this book; buy it. Buy copies for family members and friends, you will not be disappointed.

"Hello, It's Me" turned out to be so much more than a fun jaunt through the pop culture of the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's(though it was that). As someone who didn't get a chance to rock the 70's and much of the 80's it was quite a trip and Chris did seem to be everywhere! But what I really took away from this read was a personal philosophy not only of how to live a life well but also the importance of being a historian for your own life. So much more than nostalgia "Hello, It's Me" was fun, personally touching, and will no doubt have an effect on how I lead my life and become an advocate for my personal history!
