More About R. A. Montgomery, Mariano Trod, Claudio Griglio & Andres Rossi
Raymond A. Montgomery is the founder of the Choose Your Own Adventure interactive children's book series. Montgomery synthesized all of his varied educational and game theory work in the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series, first published by Bantam Books in 1979. The series grew into a publishing phenomenon with over 180 titles and 250 million copies published worldwide in over 35 languages. The books were unique in that they appealed equally to girls and boys, to reluctant readers and avid ones. The CYOA series has been used in classrooms from early elementary school to college. At the advent of the Internet age, the series was used frequently in curricula focused on explaining the interactivity of the World Wide Web to young children. After a successful stint in the mid-to-late-90's designing games for CD-ROM, Montgomery decided to re-launch the CYOA series based on the interest he was getting from former fans. Montgomery and partners Shannon Gilligan and Gordon Troy, Esq. have turned their full attentions to Choose Your Own Adventure since Fall 2004. The series is being reissued through Chooseco LLC, in Waitsfield, Vermont. R.A. MONTGOMERY is an avid outdoorsman. He has hiked in the Himalayas, climbed mountains in Europe, scuba-dived in Central America, and sailed in Franco-phone Africa .He has lived in France, travels frequently to Asia, and calls Vermont home. His interests include macroeconomics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels, and music. He has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters.
R. A. Montgomery currently resides in Warren, in the state of Vermont.

Caution Aug 31, 2007
Growing up, I loved the Choose Your Own Adventure Series. Naturally, I was thrilled when I found them and I wanted to share them with my son. I was shocked when I found out that some of the endings include the characters being murdered in a variety of ways. I don't know if these books are updated versions or if I read the ones for younger readers when I was little. Please proceed with caution.
Very Goofy Jan 21, 2005
A very far-fetched and silly tale about two smart kids who try to solve a world wide oil crisis. At it's best, it can be a very fun read with a couple of imaginative endings. At it's worst, there are alot of cheesy sci-fi characters and environments such as jumping into an Arabian chant painting or being held trial at an intergalactic court. With the whole oil crisis, there comes a moral to the story which R.A. Montgomery likes incorporating within his stories. Also, some of the different paths are 'go' or 'don't go' type decisions which makes for a bland flow of things. Other than these shortcomings, it's silly fun. There are even a couple of violent endings if you are not careful.
