    If That's Business, Who Needs It? I almost quit reading this one about halfway through. I have enjoyed the previous nine episodes so I kept pushing on, hoping that it would get better. It just got more depressing. We start with a filthy-rich teen-aged Englishman of noble birth, surrounded by every privilege one can possibly imagine, including ultra-plush automobiles, beautiful women, and the best food. Banquets. Honors. Parades. Awards. And then move on to some of the most destitute people on ear If That's Business, Who Needs It? I almost quit reading this one about halfway through.

On to dictators who murder for position and not concerned about starving millions of their own countrymen and women. To see the same tactics used in "unions" and American politics is enough to turn my stomach! If that was Nelson's purpose, then he succeeded!

    Just wondering Which parallel universe these stories are set in? Do they classify as the science fiction mentioned earlier in the series? Oh wait, I guess they would be considered contemporary fantasy. They are a fun read, the best part is like in FG you catch all the references

    A bit over the top but a fun read.q It is fun to try and find all the pop culture references in the book that Richard Jackson claim to be responsible for.

    Weak compared to his earlier Jackson Saga books. Still writing phrases taken from the ‘the stupid boy’ series. Wonder what their tie in is?

    I love the series. I would have given it a 5, but the typos, context errors, misuse/lack of commas drives me crazy. The whole series is in dire need of proof reading.

    When I read the first two books I used Kindle Unlimited but I enjoyed them so much I purchased all ten. It’s a fun read for those of us that are baby boomers. I am looking forward to the next books

    Great as always This series is one of my favorite reads. The name dropping, nostalgia, humor, and flat out good story telling makes each of the Richard Jackson books fun to read.

    Nice story, familiar characters but the story lacked iusual spark. Still a nice read but not up to his usual superior standards.

    This one was much more interesting The Queens Gambit reference was a little over the top, but all on n all it was an enjoyable read.
