  2. Really great read from start to finish. I had no ides what it took to host a Super Bowl…let alone one that took place after a devastating hurricane. Brian Boyles nailed it — from his indebt interviews of the locals to his meetings and observations and/with the politicos. Fascinating account as to all that transpired in readying the “new” New Orleans to this historic event. Can’t wait for your next book about The Big Easy! Gin


  3. I am music editor at Pacific Rim Review of Books. I’d love a review copy of Boom & Blackout. I’ll send clips of my published reviews. Thanks, Joseph Blake 2124 McLaren Ave. Victoria, BC V8S 2P8
