Wheel of Fortune - book cover picture

Astonishing! At over 1100 pages long, I couldn't put this
novel down. The many characters all were mesmerizing. With
superb deft, the author weaves a spell around her readers who
will find it impossible to forget any of the complex charac-
ters of this intense drama. Her device of using the
Godwin family as a parallel to a past Royal family is simply
ingenius. Weaving an entertaining story within a strong moral
tone lends a depth to this novel that is all too often lacking
in today's bestsellers. Ms. Howatch's novels should not only
be read but also studied. Bravo!

BEST business book I've EVER read!

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't - book cover picture

Many business books have highlighted on some of these themes:
1) charismatic leader, 2) overnight success story, 3) a defining moment, initiative, or revelation, 4) visionary technology strategy, 5) B-school buzzwords (such as first-mover advantage)Collins explains that these traits are NOT characteristics of Good-to-Great companies, but rather practices of the laggards. Most authors describe a recent success story, but it usually amounts to nothing more than ego, charisma, opinion, or implementation of the latest fad. Collins, instead, provides references to thousands of pages of documented research to PROVE his point.Collins describes how 11 mediocre companies, across different industries and over various time periods, implemented similar practices to drastically outperform the market and transform themselves into great companies.

Fabulous makeover for a beloved classic!

Ella Enchanted (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

Ella Enchanted's a wonderful take on Cinderella, which incidentally's one of my favorite fairytales. The heroine's full of spunk, manages to hold her own against her nasty aunt and silly stepsisters, and even battles it out with evil giants! Feisty Ella's definitely NOT your average damsel in distress. If you've read the Princess Diaries or The Witch Of Blackbird Pond, where the heroines stay true to themselves and win the day (and the boy) you'll definitely enjoy this. It's a great read for girls of all ages!

Drug Crazy : How We Got into This Mess and How We Can Get Out - book cover picture

IF you're wondering how we got to a place where drug kingpins are richer than corporate CEO's, where drug gangs outgun big-city police forces, where by government estimates we have already spent $300 billion, and we still have more drugs than ever, then you'll love this book. The war on drugs is like, well...read this book and find out how with a stroke of the pen, we can get rid of the gold-chained, pistol-packing slime that endanger our cities, our children, our civil rights, and our future. This book will open your eyes, and the drug war will be the same!

Practical Handbook for the Emerging Artist - book cover picture

I gave my old copy to a friend that was starting out as a sculptor. This book is a comprehensive handbook for anyone wanting to become an artist, or one that has already started. I love that it has a section that shows how to take proper photographs of your artwork to send slides for shows. It is also nice that there are parts where established artists tell a little on how they do it and give helpful advice. It is very helpful. A must for the emerging artist.

Starts slow, but then captivates


Book title: Empire Falls
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Empire Falls - book cover picture

At first, I found Empire Falls a bit plodding, and not as laugh-out-loud funny as prior Russo reads like Straight Man. But about 75 pages in, I began to profoundly care about the Robys and to completely buy the story. It's basically a small-town, mid-life crisis tale, but Russo tells it so masterfully that this doens't feel like the same-old, same-old. That there is a Dickensian villian and a rather tidy ending seems appropriate, since this has been such a saga. It begins and ends on the river, at the Empire Falls, and this recovering English major bought it.

Made Me a Believer in the True Crime Genre

Bully : Does Anyone Deserve to Die? - book cover picture

I've always shunned true crime books, dismissing them as tabloid in nature. But Bully transcends the genre. Fast-paced like a suspense novel, it is written from a standpoint of moral absolutism so that a stinging lash of condemnation is rendered against a white upper middle class community in Florida that seems to be raising teenagers with no moral compass. The true story, the murder of Bobby Kent by his peers, is brutally shown not for sensationalism but to show how the murderers had no sense of right or wrong. In other words they were completely numb to the evil they were committing. There are some highly accessible companion books that deal with the loss of today's society's moral conscience. I'll name a few: The Wilding of America by Charles Derber; For Shame by James Twitchell (sadly out of print); and The Twilight of American Culture by Morris Berman.

Survival under stress

Shantung Compound: The Story of Men and Women Under Pressure - book cover picture

Gilkey's academic liberalism is tested by the reality of the stress he observes as a mid-20's, very involved leader under prison conditions. His insights in the complex areas of law, food distribution, justice, work (his insight into lazy workers is very good), equality, theology, among other topics makes this book required reading for all managers, supervisors, teachers, religious leaders and lawyers. His associations with gifted intellects as well as self serving persons during his incarceration allowed him to validate his presuppositions. This is one of the most insightful books I've read in a long time. I now know why he is such an highly respected, revered teacher, mentor and theologian. His insight into the original sin of mankind is worth the price of the book! This book is truly a blessing.
