Baldwin-deep thinker


Book title: The Fire Next Time
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Fire Next Time - book cover picture

This book would be an excellent choice for required reading for High School juniors and seniors. It deals with the real issue of race in a responsible, intelligent manner, in a way that is easily understood, yet not simplistic. We get enough cut-and-dried morality thrown at us, as well as much pathetically vague garbage about "tolerance", but not many people in primary public education deal with the main issues straight on. Baldwin views things in terms of the long-haul, but warns that things cannot remain as they are without serious repercussions. In a time when black youths have less and less to look to in the mainstream, I think it would be a great move to get this book put into the public High School curricula.

A wry, whimsical look at the housecleaner's life


Book title: Other People's Dirt: A Housecleaner's Curious Adventures
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Other People's Dirt: A Housecleaner's Curious Adventures - book cover picture

This book made me laugh out loud more than once. Ms. Rafkin has a mordant sense of humor but she's also getting at sticky issues of class. Makes you look hard at your attitudes toward hired help. We want to think they're anonymous robots, wiping up our pubic hair and drain scum without glancing at our private artifacts or making judgments about our lifestyle. Other People's Dirt punctures that bubble. I welcomed the chance to travel through the world of those who clean up after our messes. Several of my friends have even used this as a how-to book: taking notes from Ms. Rafkin about how to be more respectful/aware of their housecleaner's difficult work. Read it and chuckle.

Awesome Story!


Book title: The Phantom Tollbooth
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Phantom Tollbooth - book cover picture

There was an excerpt of this book in my fifth grade reading textbook, and I said to myself when we had to read it, "the phantom tollbooth? Come on now, please. This is like, for babies!" But I enjoyed the clip, and liked it so much I set out to the library for the whole book. It makes you think, and see thing in a whole new light. For example, the characters are very strange, like the Whether (not weather) man, and the little guys that don't do anytyhing all day, whose names I foget. The Lethargics, I think they were called. If you like to think, and look at things in a strange new way, you should read this book!

Wrong title BUT GREAT book


Book title: Digital Designing in the Programmable Logic Devices
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Digital Designing in the Programmable Logic Devices - book cover picture

The correct title is:
Digital Designing With Programmable Logic Devices

This is possibly the best book I have purchased on this subject.
It contains a thorough coverage of logic design with Finite State Machines. Examples include various
Programmable Logic Devices from PAL16L8 to 10R8 and even ROMS.

Introduction to micro code and CISC. Address Bus Decoding is covered towards the end as well.

All in all a wonderful book - and found just in time given my interest in digital design. I am probably
going to read it a second time, before delving into my own projects.

In short you should come away from this confident enough to purchase a CPLD/FPGA board and
start experimenting.

A Must Read


Book title: Angel
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Angel - book cover picture

This is one of my favorite Lindsey novels. The characters are wonderfully real, and the hero Angel is one of my all time favorites. The dialogue is witty and their story is a lot of fun. You get to revisit some other characters of Lindsey's from Savage Thunder and Brave the Wild Wind. That's one of the things I absolutely love about Lindsey's novels; is that we get to see some of our old friends from previous novels, and see how they're doing.

The Inefficient Stock Market, What Pays Off and Why

The Inefficient Stock Market: What Pays Off and Why - book cover picture

Ever since I finished my MBA in 1985, I have suspected that the stock market is volatile and inefficient. I have studied Markowitz, the CAPM, and other elegant mathemetical models of the market that indicate the market (ex. S&P 500) cannot be beaten. This book claims it can and I believe Haugen is really on to something big.I have been a non-financial scientific and technical analyst for a company doing business primarily with the defense department for over twenty years and found the analysis techniques presented in the book to be completely rational and apparently based on a very sound statistical approach.This is the most refreshing approach to reality investing I have yet read. I intend to read the other two books in the trilogy.If you want to break out of the Modern Portfolio Theory mold, read it.

AMAZING


Book title: Deerskin
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Deerskin - book cover picture

I'm a big fan of Robin McKinley, and for anyone who is not familiar with her writing, I recommend this book as well as all of her great novels.
McKinley writes very poetically and fluidly, which results in a dramatic, moving novel that makes you laugh, cry, and really feel everything the characters are going through.
Deerskin is no different. This is darker and more serious than her other works, but just the same, it is amazing. The story of Princess Lissla Lissar will haunt and intrigue you with her valor, strength, and undying determination to live on, even after a horrible crisis. Trust me, in scary parts your heart seriously starts to pound, and in sad parts the tears won't stop from falling down. This is an amazing book, and I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down.
PLEASE don't listen to the critics... They're never good anyway. But understand, this is a must read book.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

Just finished this book, and I can't wait to read the next two! I can see already that the Harry Potter books are going to rank right up there with the Chronicles of Narnia as books that are well worth a re-read, no matter how old or young you are. No doubt, everyone will wish they could do their graduate work at Hogwarts! The characters are well-developed, the environments are detailed, letting you imagine exactly what everything must look like--definitely a fantastic debut for this new writer. I can't say enough great things about this book!

Great book, didnt think I'd like it from premis but I did

The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel - book cover picture

I had never read a Steven King book so I went to drug store because I couldn't get any further to a mall to find a good book so i picked the only thing they had even tho by reading back cover I didn't think I'd like it. Im glad I bought it It was great!! Like everyone says it was hard to put down. The book was interesting on several notes. One, of course the suspense and horror aspect. Two, It really made me think of older people you see on the street or in nursing homes and thinking of what kind of life they may have had. Paul in the nursing may seem to be just another tired old geezer but the man has lived through alot and seen alot. His experiences has had alot of impact on his life as well as the other guards. This aspect made remember to appriciate the older and wiser citizens around us our family, friends and what they have been through. Three, it made me think of capital punishment and how cruel it can be espeically if the wrong person is being executed.
