Data Warehousing, Data Mining, and OLAP (Data Warehousing/Data Management) - book cover picture

This book is not a common Data Mining/Data Warehousing book. It has the objective of being a complete handbook, and it is successful in its aim. It gives the readers a good background that helps in answering the common questions a practitioner has. To summarise: the authors of the book managed to describe the whole subject area, that is not so easy to find in other books on these topics. To achieve that knowledge we should read many other publications from different areas.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

Al Franken does a good job exposing "so called facts" that the right-wing puts out and backs up his positions with verifiable evidence. Some real eye-openers are the chapters on the alleged left-wing bias to the 2000 election and Operation Ignore.
Some of the chapters are hilarous as well as informative. A few of the later chapters kind of drag a bit (like "Pig Feces" and "No Child Left Behind") although the slower chapters do make decent points.
This review is based upon the audio CDs. Listening to Al read the book was an added bonus. He does some funny imitations and some parts actually play back the audio from the original source (like from Rush's radio show and Al's Clearchannel appearance).
I don't agree with Al on everything in the book but it was refreshing to hear the "other side" that you rarely hear while watching TV or listening to the radio these days.

The book that sparked my joy for reading

I Know This Much Is True - book cover picture

This is my absolute favorite book. The story is beautiful, touching, suspensful, everything a reader wants. Ever since I read this book I have really enjoyed reading for pleasure. The plot contains enough characters to keep you on your toes but not too much that an over abundance of characters flood your memory. I couldn't put this book down. I would say it's more of a chick book, but I hope guy's would enjoy it as well.

Just as a side note, I always thought guys were over exagerating the pain of getting kicked in the crotch, but after reading the description and anguish main character, Dominick, encounters, I will never second guess that pain again.

I was completely captivated by this novel. Highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Applied Software Measurement: Assuring Productivity and Quality - book cover picture

I bought this book as a suppliment to Software Engineering Economics, by Boehm, because of it's later publication date. However, once I read the book I believe that the Boehm should be a suppliment to this work. Before reading this book I was unfamiliar with function points. We are now implementing them in our company. If this book does not bridge the gap between technical and management it goes a long way toward that end.

Only One Ollie - book cover picture

The Ollie books are among my 2-1/2 year old daughter's favorites, and we love reading them to her. The simple stories teach basic premises like counting and opposites. The characters are easy to relate to, and the world looks like it would to a toddler - only with more color! The illustrations are terrific; bright and bold but not overwhelming. An added plus: these sturdy board books are small enough to tuck into a diaper bag for emergency distractions.

The Millionaire Real Estate Investor - book cover picture

If you liked The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, you are really going to love The Millionaire Real Estate Investor. Anthony Robbins, noted motivational/inspirational/self-help speaker and author has said many times, "Success Leaves Clues!" Gary Keller has taken the clues of many real estate investors and has created a book that shows you how they did it and explains how you can to. Most millionaires in the U. S. either started by investing in real estate or a prominent part of their financial portfolio contains real estate investments. This book takes you from the first investment sale to investing in many sales and clearly demonstrates how to avoid the pitfalls and going it alone mentality (no one can do it better than I can). I have been in real estate for over 25 years and can only imagine where I would be today had I had access to this book 25 years ago.

Cowboy Charlie: The Story of Charles M. Russell - book cover picture

If you have read any other Jeanette Winter books, you know the quality and content are excellent. This book is no different. Cowboy Charlie is very special! It is a true Cowboy Story...the story of Charles Marion Russell, the great painter and sculptor, who was a cowboy, too! The sweet story shares how Charlie's parents wisely supported their son's dreams of the West and his artistic talent. The book's illustrations are a rich and colorful quilt that brings warmth to the story. Your budding artist should read this. Your little cowpoke will be encouraged to embrace his cowboy dreams in a new way. This is the stuff of great children's books. Get it.

Granny Dan (Danielle Steel) - book cover picture

This was a wonderfully crafted love story with simple, readable writing. It was a feel-good story with likable characters and, though there is little detail, there seems to be nothing lacking. This was the first book of Danielle Steel's I had read, and picked it up initially for the Degas painting on the cover. After I read the dust jacket, I wanted to read the book because it was about a ballerina, but the only reason I bought it was because it was on sale at B. Dalton for six dollars. Well, I'm glad I did buy it, and I do not agree with some of the reviews I've read. This was a good story.

For those who love mysteries he provides an interesting group of detectives a knight - Ralph, a lawyer Gervase, Canon Hubert and Brother Simon. Marston deftly combines mystery, action and romance in a historical setting.

The Closers (Harry Bosch (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

This is Michael Connelly doing what he does best -- spinning an interesting crime story with careful step-by-step detection and some internal political friction. He clearly knows the LA police world (or makes it sound like he does) but I found I got bogged down in so many acronyms and department titles. It's all plot,but very well executed. There's not a lot of depth when it comes to characters, though there were some nicely drawn minor characters. It's a good read for those who like crime/detection/police procedure type books. It was a fast read that held my attention.
