This Is Indy By Ross R. Olney
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Motor racing is a dangerous sport. If you win, you can get rich, and live a comfortable life. But everyone doesn't win, and sometimes, but not too often anymore, a driver pays the ultimate price when... More > he tries too hard to win. This book is about the Indy 500, written by an experienced writer who has raced, and a complete fan. He has driven on the track at Indy, and although his nickname at his local track, used with affection, of course, is "Rollover Ross," he does love auto racing, and has written a number of books about it including his popular "Daredevils of the Speedway." Racing at Indy is exciting, very dangerous, and attracts hundreds of thousands of fans from across the world and nearly four hundred thousand at the track. And many millions of fans on television. This is a gathering of what this author thinks are some of the highest, most dramatic moments at this one race, the once every year Indianapolis Speedway Race.< Less
This is INDY! By Ross R. Olney
Paperback: $17.00

(1 Ratings)
The "Indy 500" is the most exciting auto race, on the most famous track, before the largest in-attendance audience for any sporting event ever in history. Every driver wants to win this... More > event, assuring him or her fame forever and probably a huge amount of money as well. Drivers at Indy seem willing to take that "extra chance" to win, such as Rick Mears did in his chapter in this book by going high into even more danger instead of the low, less risky line on the track. The author has driven on the track at the Speedway in a race car, and has covered the race more than forty times as a reporter. The 500 is, he admits, one of his favorite topics about which to write in his over 200 book career, and he has written several books on this subject. He always looks forward to it every year on Memorial Day, either at the track or on television. He advises that everyone should see this great race in person at least one time, but that it is possible you can see more of the event on television.< Less

Manhunt!! By Ross R. Olney
eBook (ePub): $4.00
"They will catch you sooner or later," could be the theme of this book on famous manhunts. Some are memorable, some have been forgotten, but in each one a desperate fugitive is trying to... More > run, and generally failing. From famous killers like John Wilkes Booth, who murdered President Abraham Lincoln, and John Dillinger, who killed many others, and including one of the worst of all, Theodore "Ted" Bundy, who killed and than raped the bodies of many pretty young women. Some are now on death rows in prisons, where they belong, and some are in prison awaiting the next meeting in court. And some, like Michael Goodwin, who was convicted of arranging the murders of speed king Mickey Thompson and his lovely wife Trudy, swear they are innocent and are only waiting for a court to free them. Each of the stories in this book is different, but all are gripping.< Less
Manhunt!! By Ross R. Olney
Hardcover: $40.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
"Sooner or later they'll catch you," could be the theme of this book on murderers, rapists, and other bad people who have been chased down and brought to justice, like John Wilkes Booth, or... More > buried as an "unknown," like young Joey Spears, in the forword, or in some other way handled, like Bonnie and Clyde, who were shot to pieces or Ted Bundy, who died in the electric chair. It is difficult to even imagine why an unthinking parole board will turn these killers loose to murder and rape and kill again, but it happens often. And, please be careful out there, it will happen again.< Less

There are seven women who will never be forgotten, according to this author. They are the epitome of everything in entertainment, in politics, in medicine, and in charity and good will. Some became... More > wealthy, some spent a life in poverty, but each one of the seven accomplished great feats in science and leadership. And in other fields such as entertainment, in the case of Marilyn Monroe. Should she be in a book alongside Mother Teresa and Joan of Arc? This akthor feels she should. You decide.< Less
Imagine That!! By Ross R. Olney
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Even modern science admits that in the future, hundreds of years from now, most people will have the ability to move things with their thoughts, and do many other wonderful things. You won't have to... More > say, "pass the salt, please," you will just "think" the salt shaker to come across the table to you, and it will. Right now, we are on the very edge of this great power. We know the basics, covered in this book. And sooner or later, one of us will learn how to cure cancer by thinking about it. We'll just order it, or heart disease, or other ailments, to "go away," and it will. Even science now agrees that the "think system" con of "professor" Harold Hill, in the great show "The Music Man," will really work. Hill saw it as a scam, but we learn in this book that it is real, and will eventually be a part of our lives. Hill's rag-tag band shocked everyone, especially Harold Hill himself, when they played an almost recognizable rendition of "Minuet in G." Read this book to see how they did it, and how you can do it.< Less
Imagine That!! By Ross R. Olney
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The time is coming when we will all have the power to order cancer, or any other life-threatening disease, to just "go away," and it will go away. In this book "Ortho" discusses... More > it, and remarks about how backward we, here today, are. We can't even order a bad cold, let alone cancer, to go away. But then his buddy, "Dontist" points out that the cavemen were even worse off, and had to worry about becoming lunch for some hungry creature waiting outside their cave. The Music Man, with one of the most famous and enduring scams, might turn out to be prophetic according to many of today's experts on the subject. "Professor" Harold Hill thought he was using a great con on the gullible folks back in River City, Iowa, but in the mind of brilliant author/composer Meredith Willson, he was just doing what is in our own near future, and should work just fine. Hill's "think system" is now accepted by many imagery experts, and you can use this to better your own life. You can be a winner, all you must do is believe it.< Less
