The Curse of the Bambino (Penguin Sports Library) - book cover picture

I first read this masterpiece when it came out, but recently had to purchase another copy after mine disappeared in a move (coincidence? I think not). After all, what true Sox fan could be without it?The Red Sox, America's true star-crossed franchise, may someday erase the Curse of the Bambino, but until they can win it all, Shaughnessy's brilliant chronicle serves as a beacon to all long-suffering Sox fans to remind us all why we are here. I may be only 28 years old, but I died a thousand deaths that October night in 1986, and I died a thousand more when I read that chapter in "Curse."If you are a Sox fan, and haven't read it, remedy the situation now!

The Challenger Launch Decision : Risky Technology, Culture, and Deviance at NASA - book cover picture

Who would have thought that the most cognizant explanation of the Challenger accident would be written from an industrial psychology perspective? I've worked for NASA contractors for 24 years and have dealt with all of the types of various reviews and "overhead chart" engineering and management discussions and telecons she studied. I read this book when it first came out and have referred others to it as one of the best texts on management, technical decision making, and quality assurance that I can think of. Years of education led me to think that I was a "professional" but, as Ms Vaughn so eloquently demonstrates, there is no real aerospace engineering profession in the context of the NASA/Industry partnership.

HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide, Fifth Edition - book cover picture

I just enrolled in college into a multimedia program where we are learning XHTML, HTML and PHP among other things, so I purchased this book. It was recommended to me by my instuctors. I have found the book to be VERY helpful and I have been using it a lot. It has a glossary and index which I really like. Whenever I don't understand something in class I always go to the book and it never fails. It is very easy to read, and I really like how it teachs you XHTML and HTML at the same time. I recommend it.

Algorithms in C++, Parts 1-4: Fundamentals, Data Structure, Sorting, Searching (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

As a software developer hungry to learn, I find myself sorting through a large number of computer books to find the well-written ones that are worth investing my time and money in. After reading and using Sedgewick's Algorithms in C++, I consider it to clearly be among the best books on this subject. I found the examples to be well-explained and easy to understand, with lots of practical source code ready to use in your programs. I look forward to reading the upcoming Java version as well.

Chesapeake Blue : The Chesapeake Bay Saga #4 - book cover picture

I bought this the day it came out and stayed up half the night to finish it. The story fast forwards about 15 years,Seth is now in his late twenties. He realizes that no matter where he may roam, St Chris is home. It was great to revisit with Cam, Ethan, Phillip and their families. But the main story is still about Seth and how he sees himself. A part of his brain still sees himself as a scared little kid, being victimized by his mother. He would do any thing to prevent this from touching his family again, even paying his mother off to get her to leave him alone. By the end of the story he finally realizes that no matter what, Gloria will always be there but his family is stronger and tougher than her.

Funk : The Music, The People, and The Rhythm of The One - book cover picture

I recieved this book as a gift from my Fiancee, who is a FUNK musician. Many times he explained to me what FUNK is and how it began. My interest in FUNK music began to peak and I wanted to know more. I read the entire book in a 6 hour flight from the east coast to the west coast. The book was so informative I couldn't put it down. Prior to my reading this book I had no idea of the indepth history FUNK and the magnitude of its impact on the music industry. If anyone wants to know and understand the history of FUNK; I refer to this book as the "BIBLE OF FUNK". I am now a well educated lover of FUNK!!!

Pollyanna (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

When I started to read Pollyanna,I feared it would be a mushy tearjerker. It isn't.Of course it is sentimental and can reduce you to tears, but what is wrong with that. Apart from the tears there is also a grim. almost satyrical sense of humour, considerable depth and a lot of sound psychology. The portrayal of turn-of-the-century philanthropy is scathing. Pollyanna is not naive. She knows there is pain and suffering, in fact she knows all about it. She may be an angel, but she is a very shrewd angel with a real grasp of the power of her own goodness.This makes the book really funny in a way that only a really thoughtfull book can be. If you can take some Victorian semtimentalisms for granted and if you are not a cynic, you should read it, whatever your age. And if you are a cynic you may never know how much you need to read this.

Mrs. Mike - book cover picture

I had never heard of MRS. MIKE until I came across a raving review of it at I found a copy at the library and couldn't put it down. As soon as I finished reading it, I quickly purchased my own copy and as I write this review I can see it sitting on my desktop. It makes me happy just knowing that this book exists and just looking at the cover makes me smile. I am a very, very picky reader and won't suggest a book unless it is awesome. I quickly e-mailed everyone on my e-mail list about this book. My aunt couldn't believe it when she read my message. She had read MRS. MIKE years and years ago in middle school and remembered everything about the book all this time later. We talked for hours about it over the phone. That weekend she went and purchased a copy for her daughter, who, of course, loved it as much as we did. It may sound trite, but if I could only have two books, I would choose my bible and MRS. MIKE.

Naked - book cover picture

Be warned: read this book and you will get laugh-lines. Deep, permanent laugh lines.The L.A. plastic surgeons generally have lower prices for a face lift than the N.Y doctors. But you really need to explore, because cosmetic surgery in L.A. is like sushi; it's everywhere. So it might be worth the cash to go to a N.Y doctor.Although, I understand that there are some great doctors in Atlanta. My point is: research your physician before undergoing surgery.Basically, expect to pay around nine grand. But again, this depends on what you have done and where.If you really don't like the idea of going under the knife, simply don't buy any book from Sedaris.

I've never written one of these reviews, but this is one of the treasured books in my library. I've owned it since it came out and continually refer to it for advice and council. I have also given it to many customers. Kyocera's website is also an inspiring to place to see how Mr. Inamori put his philosophy to work to bring a legacy of business success worldwide. His people-practices would change the world if practiced.
