Based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Howard Bloom has been called “next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein, [and] Freud” by Britain’s Channel 4 TV, and “the next Stephen Hawking” by Gear magazine. One of Bloom’s seven books, Global Brain, was the subject of an Office of the Secretary of Defense symposium with participants from the State Department, the Energy Department, DARPA, IBM, and MIT.
It is amazing. The writing is revelatory. Isn't the out of body experience man's search for enlightenment? Call me Howard, I'd like to have a seven hour conversation with you.

Howard Bloom is a genius . . . he's an elite storyteller and poetic writer.

I love it! A work of lyrical ecstasy and primal elegance. Tight prose, fast pace, penetrating insights, very, very absorbing, leaking, dripping, pulsating into the reader's mind this energy/thing called rock and roll. I LOVE THE BOOK!
— Mark Lamonica, winner of the Southern California Booksellers Association Nonfiction Award, photographer for Rio L.A.: Tales from the Los Angeles River
Fantastic, every chapter is an eye-opener. Amazing. exciting, secret, and unbelievable revelations. I sit here spinning. Every chapter keeps you wanting more. I eat, breath, and live your every word; I see thru your eyes; I feel thru your energy. You are able to grab my by the balls and the brain at once. To pierce my soul and my rationality in one single move.
— Suzie Dove Miles
This is amazing! What a life Bloom has led! The names in Bloom's book have really given me what I can only describe as whiplash down memory lane! What a long strange trip it's been.

Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: A Search for Soul in the Power Pits of Rock and Roll is a masterpiece. . . . It is fun, intelligent, deeply insightful, and humorous. From an author who has written about God, the Global Brain, the history of Capitalism, Islam, and of course how he invented the '60s, Howard Bloom adds another volume to a long shelf of great books. I lift the lighter and demand an encore!
