Generation Kill - book cover picture

This book covers what we at 1st Recon called "The Best Spring Break Ever". Wright does an outstanding job accurately portraying the personnalities of the operators of Bravo company. As a member of Charlie and H&S company I can verify that he is fairly accurate in his recalling of most events our Battalion faced. The only thing I found inaccurate is that he portrays many Officers to be incompetent. In reality there was a few morrons in charge, but the vast majority were fairly good guys. This is farily standart throughout the military. Also he took a lot of the things we said out of context and interpreted it to make us sound angry all the time(except Tim B., he really is angry all the time). All in all this book is 80%fact 20%spin. Regardless, it captures the general feelings and experiences that we in 1st Recon lived through.

Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength - book cover picture

For most of us this is not the first attempt at learning more about fitness. I would venture to guess that most people buying this book already have some knowledge about what to do. Yes, we have to eat less and exercise more. We have to eat cleaner foods, do a fair amount of cardio work, and weight training. However, what Bill Phillips does is put it together in a simple and effective way so that we don't spend 3 hours per night on a treadmill or in the gym. If you think that you know everything there is to know about health and fitness and you're very self motivated, skip the book and get to it. However, this book is like taking along a personal trainer in book form. He motivates, instructs and gives us permission to fail and start again. What more can you ask for? Highly recommended.

Reclaiming Your Life : Step Step GT Using Regression Therapy Overcome Effects Childhood Abuse - book cover picture

This is a remarkable little book. It is vastly different from any of the other "self-help" tomes out there, and I've read a lot of them. Where many books explain what happened to you in your childhood and maybe even why, few give you a clue as to how to deal with the emotional issues that arise as you pursue recovery. This book is deeply compassionate and empathic, and takes you step-by-step through the process of dealing with those emotions. Reading it gave me the courage to dive back into some painful emotions I had been denying for a long time -- and the author was right, once I had done so I felt an incredible sense of freedom and relief. There's no moralizing here -- nobody is shamed or labeled "bad" or "wrong" -- there's just a lot of support, compassion and respect for what it takes to grow and heal. I hope this book finds the wider audience it deserves.

Murder Machine: A True Story of Murder, Madness, and the Mafia - book cover picture

Anyone who lives in Brooklyn (as I do) would tell you that you can't leave your car at a hydrant for 10 minutes without getting a ticket. So how did this crew run a human-butcher shop in a crowded borough for 10 years without detection, dumping corpses & body parts all over town? As bad (but fascinating) as this story is, I do believe that the whole story must be a lot worse, ie, lots more corrupt police & political involvement than what was detailed in the book. Some outwardly-respectable people walked on this one - they only got the street thugs, in my opinion. That crew had major protection from somewhere, I'm convinced of that.

Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential - book cover picture

I read the comments others were making about Joel's book. It's amazing how there are so many different views, from one book, which is what the devil wants. Joel does a fantastic job of opening the eyes of those who need to know that God loves them when they read the book, and that he wants them to realize that without knowing how precious we are in God eyes, we will not know how precious we are in our own eyes, less the term in his title "Living to your FULL POTENTIAL". I found the book inspiring and fullfilling. Many realizations came into my life and will continue because of people like Joel Osteen that has a Godly calling to help others. The book is a wonderful way to better your relationship with the Lord and is great for new Christians or those just finding God. Either way, this book is a must for those who want to Live to Their Full Potential with God and for God.

Vera Brittain: Testament of Youth: An Autobiographical Study of the Years 1900-1925 (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

As I have set myself the topic "War in English literature" for my final examination you can imagine that I have to read quite a lot of books dealing with warfare. So far, this is undeniably the best. Brittain's book really is a testament to future generations about the "Great War". The content is far too diverse to summarize in a few sentences; let us just say that Brittain managed to capture the spirit of a whole generation.I might add that I think that World War One is the perfect showcase of a futile conflict. Those dealing with world war literature would do well not just to read the literature of one side. For the American reader I can recommend Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front" or (less known) Kraus' "The last days of mankind."In fact, many of these authors (and also many of the war poets) voice the sentiment that the real enemy wasn't the soldier in the opposite trench - it was one's own general staff.

Heinlein's Best: An exploration of freedom & responsibility

Book title: Citizen of the Galaxy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Citizen of the Galaxy - book cover picture

This is Heinlein at his best: a science fiction novel that explores the meaning of freedom and responsibility both for individuals and for cultures. Many of Heinlein's best novels were written for a young audience, but with levels of subtlety for all ages. "Citizen of the Galaxy" does this through the story of Thorby, a young boy found in a slave market on a human planet that had long since split off from Earth.
Without giving away too much of the plot, Thorby moves through four different cultures, in each case playing a very different role in society and becoming part of a different "family." Thorby's dilemmas and decisions make this a proper text for any college ethics class. "Citizen of the Galaxy" was certainly an important influence in my adolescence.

The Nag Hammadi Library in English : Revised Edition - book cover picture

Further to suggestions that these books are too far removed from history and less authoritive than 1st century works, because they were written 100 years later is untrue. The canonical gospels in the bible are not 1st century, they are BASED on 1st century gospels that have been heavily edited over the centuries. This was done for theological and political reasons in an effort to maintain power for the clergy. No original 1st century gospels exist and so the Nag Hammadi gospefs are in fact older and therefore closer to history than the canonical ones.

All I Need to Know About Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger: The Shocking True Story of Troma Studios - book cover picture

This book is great. There is no other way to put it. Its funny sickening and informative at the same time. Lloyd's way of blending old movies, new movies, jokes, lies, speech that wasn't meant to be put down and information on Troma studios and the grueling pain it is to make films is genius. The book sidesteps. A LOT. He even points it out. Most of the chapters start out with a Penguin Putnam exec. and Lloyd talking about what he can't put in the book. This is everything Lloyd has put in it. But, despite everything he isn't suppposed to do, he manages to make the book, with each chapter become great and informative.

The Book of Uncommon Prayer - book cover picture

This book of poetry immediately became one of my favorites. Mosby's verse is both spiritual and contemplative. Each poem invites introspection and contemplation of the many facets of our lives. Her verse is smooth and simple while evoking beautifully crafted metaphors. Each poem is an eloquent prayer from the soul. I strongly recommend this book for any poetry enthusiast. Mosby's verse is both healing an uplifting. I have given _The Book of Uncommon Prayer_ as a gift to several friends. Michael Watkins
