Here's what people are saying about the book!

"It's a great read!"

"It is very impressive, so much work!  I am going through the book very slowly, I want to read every word, brings back so many memories."

"Very comprehensive as far as CKSO in all her many versions and flavours were to be.  It was inclusive of many of the broadcasting firsts by others in town.  It was also well fleshed out historically in the context of what Sudbury really was - more than your stereotypical mining town!!"

"Looks good, feels good - like the soft touch, and nice addition to my reference library."

"What an amazing accomplishment.  I just took a quick peek and am looking forward to spending many hours going through this, page by page."

"Wow is all I can say.  Job well done my friend."

"My first impression was WOW what a great job you did on the whole book.  The details were great and all the names and pictures were very good and the memories were there also."
