The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind - book cover picture

I cannot say enough good things about this book. This is an absolute masterpiece, one of the top five books of the Twentieth century. It is among my top three favorite books of all time. This book is remarkably well-written and very readable. It contains the ultimate combination of anthropology and neurology to explain the origins of human consciousness. Never before have I read a book in which the author combined such diverse fields as anthropology and neurology and united them into such a harmonious and complementary whole. The various sub-plots and reinforcing arguments seem to come from all directions to fortify and substantiate Jayne's main thesis. Written in 1976, this book represents the cutting edge in modern man's search for understanding in this maze of life. Forgive the hyperbole, but this is a literally prophetic work of the highest caliber and should be mandatory reading for all college-educated Americans. One of the greatest books ever written. Buy it now.

Overall, a most helpful guide to business etiquette...

The Etiquette Advantage in Business : Personal Skills for Professional Success - book cover picture

This book is a great reference tool, and sits in my office next to the classic Emily Post. It is helpful for perhaps a new college-grad, or someone entering the business world for the first time, to read it through. For those more seasoned in the business world, this book is a great tool for guidance in tricky situations. While there will certainly be tips that appear obvious to an individual with business experience, The Etiquette Advantage in Business can also be used a reference tool.

Say you are traveling abroad for the first time. This book covers etiquette on various continents and in different countries.

It is absolutely worth a read, whether you are a beginner or a CEO.

Just about the only book I know of that tells you what is REALLY going on. My favs were the U.S. presidential election and all of israel. "So blowing up buses with a suicide vest is terrorism, but shooting civilians with helicopters is not... get the picture?" I loved it. And as to the small print guy. GET A LIFE. You honestly can't find something better to do than to diss books because of the size of their print?

The most useful book available on control theory

Control System Design Guide : Using Your Computer to Understand and Diagnose Feedback Controllers - book cover picture

I have a whole shelf of control theory books, and this one is the one I use most. Ellis is one of the few people writing on control theory who actually designs working industrial control systems for a living. All the usual theory is in there: Laplace transforms, Z-transforms, and the S-plane. But this author has a much clearer idea about what actually works in the real world than most control theorists.

A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients : Fifth Edition (Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients) - book cover picture

yes this book does tell you what purposes many of the ingredients have. for example, "as an emolient", "as a thickening agent", "a preservative", etc. this book is a consumer's guide, not a text book teaching you about chemistry and cosmetic formulation, so there's no need to be too technical. i have very sensitive skin that's prone to allergies. i used to waste a lot of money on cosmetics because almost everything will give me rashes. when i was tested by an allergist i was reacting to every single sensitizer i received. now i use this guide to learn about ingredients and sort through the vast inventory of beauty products to find the right one. i just bought a newly updated version as the older version did not cover all the newest ingredients.

Little House (9 Books, Boxed Set) - book cover picture

I was given this set of books as a child by my aunt, and they are dog-eared from many years of use. As an adult, I plan to introduce my children to these stories to show them how life was many years ago, in a simpler time. I have always felt kind of envious of Laura's life - how she experienced and appreciated life to its fullest in a family of limited means. I hope my children get the same sense of the importance of family and nature and happiness, rather than material wealth.

As Polished As A Gem From Tiffany & Co.

Book title: A Certain Age
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
A Certain Age - book cover picture

A Certain Age is a novel that fits that famous line: "The book that fulfills the author's early promise." Tama Janowitz has, to state it even more simply, written her most accomplished work to date.Her story of a young professional woman's spiral down on the outskirts of Manhattan's high society is as funny as her previous work, yet it contains a mature tone that questions the artificial, materialistic values her main character worships. A tragic comedy of manners and mishaps, A Certain Age is also a social critique as spot on and effective as Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho and Jay McInerney's Brightness Falls.Ms. Janowitz continues to have great comic timing in humorous situations set at parties, shops, and auction houses. This novel also benefits from total control from start to finish. A Certain Age is a novel as polished as a gem from Tiffany & Co.

People have wondered what the fishing boat of Jesus looked like there have been many interesting drawings of what the apostle's boat looked like. The Kinneret boat (the official name for this ancient vessel) was in use around the time of Jesus and might well have represent a typical craft used by Jewish fishermen in the time of New Testament.This book has complete plans for the Galilee boat as well as a photograph ofa model of this vessel depicting what the fishing boat looked liked when afloat and in action on Galilee.

Betsy's Wedding (Betsy-Tacy Books) - book cover picture

My mother first read the Betsy-Tacy books when she was a little girl (born in 1936). I bought her all the available ones for a Mother's Day gift. I discovered the first Betsy-Tacy in our school's library and read it to my third graders. The first day they made me read the first FOUR chapters!!! I "borrowed" my mother's copies and within the course of one month, I have read all except for Betsy in Spite of Herself (it wasn't in stock)--including Betsy's Wedding in two days' time. I couldn't put it down. I have been allowed to inhabit a wonderful, beautiful world that I didn't want to leave. It makes married life sound so wonderful. Maud Hart Lovelace does an excellent job of creating an entire world--the details, the big picture and everything in between.

The Best of Many New Liberal Titles

Bushwhacked : Life in George W. Bush's America - book cover picture

If you are only going to read one of the many new liberal titles out these days, read this one. Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose have written a book that attacks the Bush administration from a new and different direction. Their aim is to explain how the President's policies affect ordinary people, so they go into areas that authors like Al Franken and Joe Conason don't. I enjoyed those contributions to this genre too, but this is a book that might might convince an independent or a Republican to vote for the Democratic ticket in 2004. Liberals should give it to their apolitical friends at Christmas time. By the time they're done, they'll be mad too.
