Best author I've read in a long while

The Highlander's Touch - book cover picture

You have to read this author! I cannot decide my favorite among her books. This books was wonderfully romantic and original. Ms. Moning's use of time travel was not in the normal 'heroine gets bonked on the head and finds herself in another time' plot format. It was unique and anything but familiar. Her heroes are to die for and her heroines are strong and intelligent. Definately worth the time and money, you'll wish you'd read them sooner.

Against stupidity, the very gods Themselves... Schiller


Book title: The Gods Themselves
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Gods Themselves - book cover picture

I read this book more than 25 years ago, and it still resonates with me as one of the best books by Asimov. "The Gods Themselves" is part of a quote by Schiller, that roughly goes,"Folly, thou conquerest, and I must yield!
Against stupidity the very gods
Themselves contend in vain. Exalted reason,
Resplendent daughter of the head divine,
Wise foundress of the system of the world,
Guide of the stars, who are thou then, if thou,
Bound to the tail of folly's uncurb'd steed,
Must, vainly shrieking, with the drunken crowd,
Eyes open, plunge down headlong in the abyss."It is from the Maid of Orleans. If you read the book, you will see why Asimov chose the quote by Schiller for his title.Read the other reviews. There is near unanimity of opinion about this book. Five stars all the way.Bob Kizlik

A good combination of theory and Application

Binding: Paperback
Practical Electronics for Inventors - book cover picture

I really like this book. I'm fairly new at electronics and have found this book extremely useful. The theory is there, complete with all of the laws and formulas that you need to analyze the behavior of circuts. The real strength of this book is the examples. It has examples on every subject it covers, and it covers a wide variety of subjects. It's expanations for some parts are a little weak, but if you work at it you can understand them. Overall it is a very good book.

Silence


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

"I am Outcast," Melinda Sordino tells us on her first day of high school. Everyone else has found their niche, some clique to fit into - Goths, Thespians, Jocks. Melinda fits in nowhere. She doesn't speak. Nobody really wants to hear what you think, she informs the reader. While this is a commentary on the many flaws of high school, with lists like The First Ten Lies They Tell You In High School and ironic vignettes detailing the often idiotic nature of the staff and traditions (the school council's continual changing of the football team's name is a recurring issue), it's also the story of one girl's struggle to deal with a trauma, and to overcome her past. Funny and touching, and possibly one of the best young adult novels out there.

BEAU LOVES AND LOSES AGAIN!

Injustice for All: A J.P. Beaumont Mystery - book cover picture

I am beginning to think that Beau will never have a good love life, everybody he meets dies. With that in mind, this was a page turning gem. I finished it in one setting. J.A. Jance is an excellent author and has a wonderful way of combining description with suspense. Beau is one of my favorite characters and I love his outlook on life.In this novel, a scream from the beach disrupts Beau's quiet vacation solitude. A crazy psychopath bent on revenge stalks the Washington State Parole Board. Can Beau catch him in time? Read the book and find out.

A spiritual guidepost

Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit - book cover picture

Ishmael came to me via a spiritual journey in which gorillas were dominant. On telling an acquaintance about this journey, she recommended and loaned me her copy of Ishmael. It has been days since I finished reading the book and I still havent reached the depths of its effect on me. This book makes entirely too much sense to me. The last book that affected me this way was Richard Bach's Illusions. That book turned my life around and started me on a spiritual journey. I have a feeling this book will do as much.

Couldn't Put It Down!


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

When this book first came out in the mid to late 80s, I was in high school. At that time I wasn't an avid reader nor did I truly enjoy reading. It was this book that changed that perspective for me. This book was wonderful and exciting to read. The details made visualizing the story easy. Now, as a 29 year old teacher, I still love to go back and reread this book. Granted, I love Harry Potter as much as the next person, but for a truly mature suspense thriller "Daddy" is a sure fire winner. Tom Clancy has nothing on the suspense and emotional investment in the characters that are developed while reading "Daddy." I only wish an excellent screen writer would take it and develop a mini-series. A long major film would lose too much detail and character development in the translation. This was the FIRST book that "I couldn't put it down! "The Harry Potter books were the 2nd, 3rd and 4th! :-)

Daughter of the Forest (The Sevenwaters Trilogy) - book cover picture

this book, along with the rest of the trilogy, is an absoloutley marvolous (sp?) book. i loved the series so much that i read them each from cover to cover consecutivley. although this may not mean much to some people i have about a five second attention span so that IS saying something! they are a must read for all fantasy fans, no matter what age! although the length may be a little hard for young readers i myself read them when i was 13 and didn't find them excpetionally challenging. Even if you aren't a fantasy fan these books, especially the first one, are worth a read anyway, who knows, maybe they'll get you hooked on fantasy like they did to me! that, by the way, is a good thing!

The Indispensible MSTie reference

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide - book cover picture

The MST3K Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, although by now a bit dated, is still a must-buy for any fan of that little old "cowtown puppet show." This book is akin to a travel guide through some of the worst refuge of cinema history, with MST3K the tour bus you stay safely inside and the writing staff your helpful (and funny) drivers. The book covers the Comedy Central years, up until the end of the sixth season, with choice words about the seventh season, the MST3K movie, and the first MST3K convention. Not a single word about the big moveover to Sci-Fi, but that's probably for the best. Enjoy the golden Comedy Central years with this book.

Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done - book cover picture

The principles of the book helped us move our stock from $1 to $6 in 2 years. I not only like the book, I now use it as a tool for my consulting business. It helps focusing on the essential and provides a template for structuring a business for success. I believe that it can be adapted to any venture.I recommend it because of its simplicity and connection to reality. If you have managed operations, you will appreciate this down-to-earth layout of how to steadily drive your business or evaluate another business. Use that approach and you are above 99% of the business crowd out there. I am grateful.
