1863 : The Rebirth of a Nation - book cover picture

Although one would think that every possible Civil War event had been written about ad infinitum, Joseph Stevens has managed to bring clarity and drama to twelve months in which the outcome of the war went from favoring the South to inevitable victory for the North. "1863, The Rebirth of a Nation" will have pride of place in my Civil War library. I hope that Mr. Stevens will bring his prodigous writing talents to bear on events and personalities that marked the final months of the war.

Learning Python, Second Edition - book cover picture

I was recently introduced to Python by the second author, David Ascher (who works at the same Institute as I do). I am really impressed by the power of Python and by the exceptional quality of the reference guides and this book in particular. As a former Professor of Computer Science at Harvard, I wish that all computer science books were written with this amount of clarity and humour. Everybody in my research lab is now learning Python from this book and my chief programmer is even more enthusiastic about it than I am. It has enabled him to write some image processing software in a few weeks that would have required months in other languages (and he knew nothing about Python two months ago). For myself, it has encouraged me to start programming again after a gap of many years. In summary, the Python language is extremely useful for image processing (and many other applications) and this book makes it very easy and enjoyable to learn.

A Parenthesis in Eternity : Living the Mystical Life - book cover picture

I have been a Goldsmith fan for approxiamately a year and I can most definitely say that out of the books I've read so far...this is one of his "better" ones. Each chapter brings a deeper level of understanding for Metaphysical aficionados and Truth students. This book will definitely increase one's sense of peace,inner-knowing, and joy. It is a must read for those seeking to improve the quality of their lives and it is priceless!

Giants in the Earth : A Saga of the Prairie (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

I read this book in high school and hadn't a clue as to its intent. I found a copy in a used book store recently and read it with much older eyes. It's beautifully written; even tho translated, you can see its beauty. And it addresses such contemporaneous themes--one can easily see Per Hansa and Beret today struggling thru some of the same issues of marriage and family and life.

Read the other reviews if you want to get an overview of plot. But, really, go ahead and read the book. I guarantee you won't be able to put it down.

Good Peoples - book cover picture

I have just finished reading "good peoples" less than 15 minutes ago, and I am still captivated by the storyline. I was drawn into each page of the book as if I was following a good movie. The characters were realistic and easy to identify with. I loved the way the the author used both spanish and english dialect within the text. This book is an ideal reading for the "career-minded" woman and man "bruised by love". I thoroughly enjoyed turning each page in anticipation for the ending.

The Red Heart - book cover picture

I have always loved historical novels, and especially loved James Alexander Thom's FOLLOW THE RIVER and FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA and LONG KNIFE. It has been a while since I've read more of Thom's books, and this RED HEART was by far as enjoyable as FOLLOW THE RIVER, which was always my most favorite. I felt like I really knew Frances Slocum and Maconakwa. I felt the "spirit" in this book. It was a wonderful story, and I highly recommend it. I am about to start PANTHER IN THE SKY now, and will let you know how that was!

The Pocket Oxford Greek Dictionary : Greek-English English-Greek - book cover picture

I bought this dictionary last year to replace a Collins version now some 20 years old. Although a little large for the actual pocket, it is certainly small and light enough to take with you while traveling. An advantage of the medium size is that the type is not minuscule and you need not squint. After almost one year I have encountered only a handful of words not in the dictionary (mostly technical terms). The translations seem to be accurate, with the commonest synonyms listed first, the spellings are modern, demotic Greek (not katharevousa like my old Collins), the gender of nouns is given, and there is a useful 9-page table of tenses of common verbs at the back (present, aorist active, aorist passive, past particple), which is enough for me not to have to carry around a verbs book as well. I have found no inconsistencies so far in cross-checking the English-Greek against the Greek-English translations. Definitely recommended.

Cat's Cradle

Cat's Cradle - book cover picture

Cat's Cradle caught my attention right away and it kept me interested all the way until the very end. While most authors usually mess up a book's ending this ending left me satisfied and happy. It ends with a quote from the religion made for this book. As soon as i opened the first page and read the line : "Nothing in this book is true" i knew it was going to be amazing. However, not all people would enjoy this book. If you like plain, simple, books that don't make you think or use imagination this is not the book for you.

Ramses: The Son of Light - Volume I (Vol 1) - book cover picture

Christian Jacq had trully wrote a wondeful book, which took us to a time and place when science was young yet profound. It is only an imaginary tales, but, it might be true, though, who knows what happened back then 2000 years ago. We can still find those mystical and magical religious belief all over the world. Christian is not only a gifted fiction writer, yet, he also has an indepth knowledge of ancient Egyptology. Belive me, I had to get the complete volumes of Ramses by buying them in 3 different countries, Indonesia, Singapore and Japan. Christian offered us a glimpse of Ramses's world and what he may had think and belief and what the egyptian back then belief in as we believe in our god now. I have to keep on reading some references on Ramses while reading his books and thus, widen my knowledge abt Ramses and ancient Egyptology.
