    • Not just Dean's death site, but also pop culture sites from Patty Hearst's bank to the Apple Computer birth site in a garage.Weird and wonderful moments are memorialized here.I've been close to the Bigfoot site where the famous Patterson film was shot in 1967, in Six Rivers Forest in CA. I've been to the first McDonald's restaurant in San Bernadino. Also been to Yankee Stadium, and Dealey Plaza in Dallas, as well as the Sixth Floor Museum and Love Field.I've been on the U. of Oregon campus, wher [...]


    • I wanted to like this book but just didnt. I felt like I was reading an encyclopedia. I found myself skimming it after a while, choosing what i found interesting. And honestly I wasnt too big on him declaring Marilyn Monroe's death a suicide when not even the coroner could say for sure or what he said about Fatty Arbuckle. He could have written that his statements were his opinions and not stated them as factjust MY opinion.


    • If you're into Hollywood, this is a fine book. Good photos and explanations of what was shot at a particular location around the United States. I was looking for a particular location where a movie scene was shot, and I stumbled across another interesting location of a Hollywood tragedy. I ended up writing a screenplay about it.


    • I now have a big ole' bunch of places I want to visit now! I would drive 10 hours to see the theater where Pee Wee Herman was arrested for masturbating, or the graves of Bonnie and Clyde. I may start closer to home with the MothMan bridge. I could start a whole niche travel company catering to weirdos like me who want to see the bizzare and disturbing side of things. Hmmmmm.


    • I like that each entry is accompanied with a photo but it didn't keep my attention like Micheal Largo's similar books have. I think it has to do with the categorization and possibly the choice of sites. This book would be good for someone on a road trip with these listed places in mind.


    • What a fun read !!!!! It was such a treat reading about some of the places I have actually been to, the places I had no idea about and even some of the places I really had no desire to know about. Very enjoyable!!!


    • My cousin introduced me to Chris Epting and I love his books! It makes me want to travel and go to all of these landmarks across the U.S.!
