When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan - book cover picture

Having read almost all of the accounts and biographies of President Reagan, I rate this this book as the best of the bunch. Armed with her extraordinary writing skills, Noonan exposes the essential essence of this great man. In contrast to the often tedious style of many biographers, this account (story, as she calls it) is exceedingly easy to read, consistently holds the reader's interest and successfully strikes at the heart of the matter.

great book for a great language

Programming in F - book cover picture

F is Imagine1 Inc.'s new language (or rather a dialect), consisting of the actual 90 / 95 parts of Fortran 90 / 95, available for Windows / Macintosh / Unix / Linux. In other words, it doesn't have the junk (go to, strange If's) of old Fortran 66 / 77 but includes pointers and structures a la C. The F language is easier to use than C (and Java), and deserves to be the Turbo Pascal of the 2000's for statisticians / behavioral scientists / engineers / scientists, in terms of it being a great, general language (although it could do with graphics / interface / commercial numeric libraries). This book is not the sort of thing that can be read in an afternoon, but it is both very comprehensive and very clear, if you're willing to keep at it. Recommended!

Fundamentals of Biostatistics/Book and Disk (Statistics) - book cover picture

I'm taking my 1st biostatistics course in medical school, and the class is using this text. I find the book easy to comprehend in the beginning chapters, but as soon as Rosner starts to explain estimation, t-distribution, etc, it lost me.

From Chapter 6 onward, Rosner is relying too much on mathematics to explain the statistical concepts, while he does not explain the math. In other words, the concepts are never throughly explained.

I used to be a professional engineer, and I consider myself good at math, so I honestly cannot imagine someone with a weaker math background can understand what Rosner is trying to say.

Mutual Contempt: Lyndon Johnson, Robert Kennedy, and the Feud That Defined a Decade - book cover picture

I received a pre-publication review copy of this book and was just bowled over. I had little idea of the central role that RFK/LBJs mutual animosity played in many of the most important events of the 1960s, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam and the aftermath of JFK's assassination. Shesol has unearthed a mountain of new information and moulded it into a coherent, convincing and gripping whole. He writes beautifully (unsurprising for a Rhodes Scholar, more so when you discover that he is also a nationally syndicated cartoonist!!), and teases out the complexities of 60s Washington in a remarkably appealing way. Anyone with the slightest interest in US politics, the 1960s, the Kennedys, the Vietnam War, or simply a fascinating, yet previously untold, story, should set aside a weekend to spend with Mr Shesol's tome

Wait Till Helen Comes: A Ghost Story (Avon Camelot Books) - book cover picture

This is the best book I've read in weeks! I go to the library almost every week. I loved this story. It is about a family that consists of Jane (the mother) and her 2 children, Molly and Michael, and Dave (the father) and his daughter, Heather. When the family moves to an old church, everything turns upside down. Heather's mother died in a fire so the family thinks that she is just a sensitive child. I the back yard of the church, the is a graveyard. Heather later finds a ghost friend, Helen. The ghost is about to make Heather commit suicide in order to stay with Helen forever. Molly finds that it is up to her to save her annoying, bratty sister. When she does rescue Heather, she finds why Heather and Helen are such good friends. You'll just have to read the book to find out the rest.

A Kiss of Shadows (Meredith Gentry Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I too accidently ran into Laurell K. Hamilton's work. My ex husband bought it for me, assuming it was something I would like... and boy was he right!From the moment I picked up "Kiss of Shadows", I could NOT put this book down. Merry was exactly the kind of release I needed from the typical Anne Rice novel. I loved how the storyline curved in all sorts of directions and I loved the introduction to Andais and Doyle. The [physical] scenes were daring and creative and not at all like a typical romance novel. I've always been a lover of fantasy novels and Ms. Hamilton did a BRILLIANT job with this novel. I've been a VERY devoted Hamilton fan since this book and now own every novel she's written.I recommend this novel to anyone who has an open mind for fantasy, [physical activity] and magic.

Rebel Without a Crew: Or How a 23-Year-Old Filmmaker With $7,000 Became a Hollywood Player - book cover picture

Rodriguez never ceases to amaze me. This is, by far, the most inspirational book on modern independent filmmaking that I've ever read. He simply leaves the mechanics of the art behind and gets right to the soul of it. The diary is a clear illustration of this man's personal triumph in an industry filled with closed doors. Robert Rodriguez not only tells his own story in a fast-paced, exciting style, he actually motivates the reader to get out there and make movies as well. It is evident that this man's passion is film. I am still amazed at how strongly he's able to channel that passion straight into the reader's bloodstream. Rebel Without A Crew is a definite must-read for anyone even remotely interested in producing films. If this veritable shot of motion picture-making adrenaline doesn't move you to action, you don't belong in the business! Read it, love it, live it!!!

The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

The Duke and I was the first book I have read written by Julia Quinn. Let me just tell you guys something, I laughed out loud! It was so funny and refreshing! Being a mother of three and owning my own business, I wasn't able to read it in one setting, but it wasn't because I didn't want too! The Family scenes were great and funny! The love scenes were very nicely done and very sensual! The story was great! It wasn't all hardship stuff that so many stories seem to have (if you read alot of books you know what I mean.) It is more down to earth. The charactors are great people! So, if you want to read a really great book and escape to a different place for this one! After all, I am online right now ordering more of her books!

Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading - book cover picture

This is a great book in itself, and an excellent sequel to Trading for a living by Alexander Elder. The author is a psychologist turned professional trader and his writing shows his education/prior experience as a psychologist. This book deals mostly with the mentality one should have in order to successfully trade and financial/risk management...both go hand in hand. The book also touches upon technical analysis and serves as a good intro to it. You won't be dissapointed by this book.

White Oleander : A Novel (Oprah's Book Club) - book cover picture

I love this book because it has a realistic balance between joy and heartache. It tells the story of a girl Astrid, who's mother, Ingrid, tries to make her tough enough to survive the harsh world. Astrid, on the other hand, is very sensitive and naive to the world, until Astrid is left to fend for herself moving from foster home to home. Astrid and Ingrid's relationship bears heavy strains and evolves as Astrid grows up differently from how Ingrid wants her too. This book is a classic in the making because it shows when a mother's job ends in raising her child, and when the daughter must step up and live for herself. Astrid learns many lessions about life; lessons she must learn apart from her mother, and all mother's and daughters alike should read this book.
