North to Freedom - book cover picture

My 6th grade teacher read this book to us just after recess. I've thought about this book many times over the last 30 years and this year decided to find it in the library. I read it and felt the same things I felt in 6th grade. My son is now 8 years old and I can't wait for him to read it. I know he will love it as much as I do. The story of David's journey will stay with your your entire life, like it has mine.

Sister Revolutions: French Lightning, American Light - book cover picture

Having read quite a bit about both the French and American Revolutions, I found this book to be a wonderfully written comparison of both the ideology underlying the movements and the continuing consequences of those ideologies. This is a very meaningful book, both for students of the two revolutions, as well as for people interested in political science and government in general. Not only does it do an excellent job of distilling the movements, but it is extremely well written.

Rhapsody: Child of Blood - book cover picture

I was completely blown away by this novel on so many levels! The characters are so well written to the point that I can hear Grunthor's deep, gravelly voice as he yells his disgusting marching riddles and see the gleam in Ahmed's eye. I've been dying ever since reading this book to get to the next in the series and it's TAKEN TOO LONG as I have missed my new friends in Rhapsody, Grunthor and Achmed very, very much!

Dark Journey (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 10) - book cover picture

Elaine has done it again with this novel. She takes a two characters that have been through great tragedies and writes about recovery. Jaina has watched what she thought was both her brothers cut down by the enemy and now much like her father is going to make the Vong pay. What better person to show her that revenge is not the answer than Kyp Durron. Who even though being controlled by Exar Kun used revenge against the Empire. He ended up completely destroying the Carida solar system with the Sun Crusher. This book brings back some old faces and integrates them well into this book. I think it has been the best star wars book focused on a few people since I Jedi.

A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive - book cover picture

A Child Called "It" by David Pelzer is a horrifying, yet hopeful, penetrating story. It tells the account of the third-worst child abuse case in all of California. When I read this book, I thought to myself, "If this is the third-worst, I'd hate to see the worst". You would, too, after you read all of the brutal and inhuman things David Pelzer's mother does to him... from brutal beatings, to ten days of nothing to eat, from shoving a spoon of amnonia down his throat, to making a "gas chamber" in the bathroom, and so many, many other horrible things she does to him.
This book opened my eyes to the real world, and enlightened my spirit (as Dave's amazing courage and confidence keeps him alive), and really made me think. This book is a great read... even for children, as they need to understand how horrible child abuse is, too (except I wouldn't reccomend it for children under 8).

As an executive coach and communications trainer, I am always on the lookout for excellent resources for my clients. Tongue Fu! is a winner! The book is easy-to-read and hard to put down. Unlike other books that are all talk but are thin on tools and tactics, Tongue Fu! provides real-world examples that any level of excectuve can use to immediately improve their day-to-day communications. The "words to use," and "words to lose," examples are especially helpful. My clients have let me know again and again that this book packs a powerful punch.

Empowering and Engaging

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers - book cover picture

Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers is a fascinating work that traces the cultural history of lesbianism in the United States -- providing a broad and thorough overview of lesbianism's diversity, its relationship to feminism, and its evolving forms of resistance in relationship to the oppressions of the dominant culture. Perhaps what is most impressive about this book is that while it is an impressively researched and intellectually stimulating piece of scholarship, it is also an extremely engaging read. Faderman draws the reader into lesbian cultural history in a way that is never clinical, but compellingly human--under her treatment, the lesbian subculture emerges in all of its varied complexity, its celebratory subversiveness, as a fascinatingly rich and vibrant culture of historical, political, and sexual significance. This book is a marvelous introduction to lesbian culture and history . . . it is entertaining, empowering, and utterly engaging.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) - book cover picture

So frequently, sequels and series never match up to the joycreated in the original. How lucky for us readers that in this casethe expected doesn't occur, and book three is as wonderful as book one. All the tensions and plot twists due to mistaken assumptions are here again in full force, and done very well. If Harry and his friends were always right, they wouldn't be nearly so endearing. Seeing them come to terms with situations they thought would be different is always entertaining. The introduction of new magic gadgets and personages also serves to keep the story fresh. And Snape is as irritatingly nasty as ever.

Antigone (French Literary Texts) - book cover picture

Why not die? For fear if God? For fear of being forgotten? For fear of not "is-ing"? For fear of worms! For fear of life eternal? For fear of night? For his warmth, we go on living -- knowing that this is not as good as it gets. What dreams may come, O Antigone! Antigone, you are a selfish vitch! PS: I am mildly manic-depressive, sometimes I eat toothpaste and at others, I gag at the sight of it...
