Essential System Administration, Third Edition - book cover picture

You'd have to be an absolute idiot to not buy this book. I've never found a resource this complete, from the very useful appendixes on the bourne shell to the fantastically complete index. (O'Reilly always has great indexes) It reads well enough that you could just sit down and absorb a chapter a day just for fun.Oh, I've never really praised a technical book before, but I couldn't help myself on this one.

The Best of H. P. Lovecraft: Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre - book cover picture

This is probably the best book I have read in years. I was itroduced to H.P.Lovecraft through my love of Fantasy games(Call of Cthulu). I was curiouse to learn about the stories that the game was based on. I am amazed at just how great this book is. I'm 1/2 way through Shadow Over Innsmouth and loving every word. My only regret is not having heard the name Lovcraft sooner. Anyone that reads this document please tell the nearest person just how good Lovcraft is. Maybe one day soon he will receive the recognition he deserved.(R.I.P.) I also wish to give a warning to anyone that is interested in Lovecraft: avoid The Watchers Out of Time. Every story in the book is actually by August Dereleth despite the fact that the cover says Lovecraft. Dereleth did study under Lovecraft but in my opinion he was not nearly as good a writer. Finally I would lik to say READ THIS BOOK!!!!

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - book cover picture

I think the book, 'Hoot' was outstanding! It was as if the book was alive! The author put suspense in the story every single chapter. The story's plot is so exciting! Imagine a 12 year old boy who just moved to Florida searching for a mysterious running boy he saw one day on the school bus. The adventure never stops. I feel that this book would be more enjoyable for kids through the ages of 9 and 13. I feel thaat way because of the difficult words and the understanding of the story's plot. If you love to read, I know you'll love this book! Enjoy!

Compact, fascinating look at the currents of societal change

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference - book cover picture

Interesting anecdotal stories, theories, and conjecture blend in a discussion of how trends spread and grow. Fascinating to see Paul Revere cast in a whole new light and why his "call to arms" succeeded where others failed. Insightful assertions about Hush Puppies, adoption of smoking, teen suicide, and how these change - curiously, I found his discussions about how to "enforce change" almost at odds with the initial thesis. All in all, an excellent book for making you think and recognize cultural patterns... but if you were hoping for a road map to structuring your own tipping points, you'll have to write it yourself. (Which, I suspect, is the point.) This book won't change the world, but it may give you guidance on the path to do so. Recommended to anyone who wants to know how or why trends arise and spread.

Total Project Control : A Manager's Guide to Integrated Project Planning, Measuring, and Tracking (Operations Management Series) - book cover picture

I provide my cleints a copy of the book as part of each training and consulting engagement. It is the best reference for taking a systems view of their project environment. Expecially useful is the section on managing a project portfolio - no other book discusses it so well. My clients are now considering DIPP and "expected monitary value" of their projects in a portfolio for the first time. And, they are amazed they made decisions without them. Nice work Devaux!

The Power of Glamour : The Women Who Defined the Magic of Stardom - book cover picture

Let me begin by saying that, as a huge vintage film fan, any book that features chapters devoted to both Norma Shearer and Kay Francis between its covers is perfect in my opinion. So now that you know that I am not an impartial judge, I have to tell you this book is fabulous. Annette Tapert did not focus on the cliche glamourous women, she focuses on the often times forgotten glamour girls, such as the aforementioned Norma Shearer and Kay Francis, as well as Dolores Del Rio and Constance Bennett. The book has fabulous photographs and a detailed biography of each glamourous woman. And, glamourous they were! All of the women featured here have left their mark on film and fashion through the years and deserve to be recognized as icons of glamour!

One of the few texts I saved from college


Book title: Sensation and Perception
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Sensation and Perception - book cover picture

I have the 4th edition of this fine text, and it is a terrific reference. Any time I have a question about my senses, I turn to this book. If you've ever wondered how it is that you perceive sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, this is really informative. It thoroughly describes the "input devices" (skin, eyes, ears, etc.) and how they interact with the CPU (brain).If you don't need it for class, buy it used. If you do need it for class, don't sell it back for beer money.

The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian (Conan of Cimmeria, Book 1) - book cover picture

Incredible. Robert E. Howard is truly the master of high fantasy and epic adventure. Conan of Cimmeria is one of the greatest heroes ever written, and a prize of American fiction.

Conan is here as he was always intended: the barbarian-poet-pirate-king who leads thousands in war and destroys thousands single-handedly. Stoic and pragmatic, the late Howard is truly one of our finest authors and proves it with his earliest short stories.

The only thing that could make this collection better is gorgeous artwork- and it is provided in spades! Mark Schultz is an incredible artist and provides lush, beautiful illustration that compliments the literature and stirs the imagination. This is a must-have collection for any fantasy fans or lovers of classic American fiction.

Shows the true depth of Tolkien's genius

Binding: Paperback
The Silmarillion - book cover picture

While not as immediately engaging as "The Hobbit" or "The Lord of the Rings", "The Silmarillion" is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the true depth of of Tolkien's work. This is not so much a novel, as it is the collected mythology of a place and time that never existed.This work reveals in even greater depth than his other works, Tolkien's inspirations. Furthermore, his background in linguistics is revealed as the evolution of Middle Earth's denizens gives rise to a host of languages of amazing depth and consistency.This is not the easiest book to read. But a close reading will offer hundreds of delightful tidbits and will provide an incredibly thorough historical foundation for the events in "The Lord of the Rings".
