I'll Always Have Paris - book cover picture

I first read this book last year after a trip to Europe which included a brief and wonderful trip to Paris. Buckwald has captured the essense of life in Paris. For those not in love with the city, this might lead to the thought that this would be a dull book. However, this book is a witty scream which left me at times reading with my mouth hanging open in amazement and at other times laughing out loud as I read turned the page. I wish I could have met him - or better yet, been able to attend one of the parties mentioned in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is fascinating, irreverent and jovial. A great read.

Touchpoints: Your Child's Emotional and Behavioral Development: Birth-3: The Essential Reference for the Early Years - book cover picture

I don't generally have a high opinion of parenting books, but someone got me this and I eventually read it. It's great! It walks you through the emotional and physical development of your child and tells you what you should expect and suggests how you should respond to it. It gives you plenty of practical advise (how to deal with picky eaters, how to toilet train painlessly) and a lot of encouragement.

I'd recommend the book to anyone committed to a child-centered approach to parenting and anyone who wants to learn more about kids needs. It's great to have around and re-read it every few month, as kids reach new developmental stages.

Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown (Betsy-Tacy) - book cover picture

I recently came across a new edition of this book. I owned it as a child back in the sixties. The first thing that came back to me was that every year, after Thanksgiving, I would read the chapter in this book about Betsy, Tacy & Tib's Christmas, starting with the shopping trip up through Christmas day. To me, this seemed to describe a perfect holiday, before it became so commercialized. It always got me in the Christmas spirit. So, when this book came into our library, I took it home & re-read it, especially the Christmas part. And you know what, it still works! If you want to feel the true spirit of a magical Christmas, read this book!

WWI Causes and Responsibilities!


Book title: The Outbreak of World War I: Causes and Responsibilities (Problems in European Civilization Series)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Outbreak of World War I: Causes and Responsibilities (Problems in European Civilization Series) - book cover picture

Holger H. Herwig's, "The Outbreak of World War I" is a wonderful up-to-date collection of essays from top-notch historians on the current historical debates surrounding the causes and responsibilities of the First World War. Books from the PROBLEMS IN EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION SERIES are designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate level European history courses. That being said, this book is not an introductory text. The authors of the articles go directly into their subjects, without providing any significant background information. Therefore, you need to have an historical base-level to work from. Nonetheless, it is an excellent tool for students, scholars and general readers of modern European history. This edition has a wonderful chronology of events, which is helpful in preparing for exams. An excellent representation on WWI scholarship

the development of genius

Great Short Works of Fyodor Dostoevsky - book cover picture

I'm almost tempted to give this collection four stars but that's impossible to do when it includes a story like Notes From Underground. The first four tales are the strongest, IMHO, the weakest probably being The Eternal Husband and then A Gentle Creature. I found White Nights enchanting but the former two seemed less developed, pale shadows of Dostoevsky's other writings. His thoughts on love are simply not as poignant or profound. But his grasp of the human impulse towards self-destruction and his ability to put flesh on humiliation and suffering remains unparalleled, The Double and Notes being the best examples. His delight in skewering Russian progressives makes A Disgraceful Affair perhaps the most entertaining of the lot.But through all his voice remains distinctive and inimitable. He was perhaps the greatest novelist of all time, and as this collection shows, he ranks among the greatest of short story writers as well.

Great story. If only it were longer!


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

This was a great little book. The only qualm I have is that it is too short. It probably could have been drawn out more. It's a good book to read on an afternoon where you've got a little free time. This book is good for young children--I would say third grade and up, or even first or second grade if your child is a good reader, but the book says reading level four--as well as adults. This is fun for an adult to read if you've got about 45 minutes or so to spare, but know that it's not going to keep you occupied long or provoke deep thoughts or anything. It's just a fun little book!

The Culture of Fear : Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things - book cover picture

This book will change the way you watch the news.Like many others, I saw the author interviewed in Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine", amd went out and bought "Culture of Fear." As a news junkie, this was an astonishing read. For years I've felt a growing sense of nervousness, manifested by the restrictions I put on my children. After reading Glassner's book I am much more aware of the print and other media's scare tactics. Using abundant examples, Mr. Glassner examines the headlines, separates the truth from fiction, and makes it clear why we are afraid of the wrong things. This book will help you avoid being mislead by the media, and change the way you look at news coverage. Can't ask for much more than that from a book, can you?

Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks! - book cover picture

I have lost 30 pounds in 2 months, a close friend lost 25. Blood pressure from high to normal in both cases, energy and general feelings of well-being through the roof. Sure, Ornish or McDougall will work too if you enjoy being a vegetarian and eating zero fat. If you do, great. But to recommend those plans to 'normal' people is a joke. Steamed vegies and dry toast? I'd rather have a 6-egg omelette with 1/4# of cheese and 4 strips of bacon, or a 16-oz. T-bone. Can you image business or social meals with no meat or fat of any kind? HA. I am also a weightlifter and have added muscle mass and strength on this program while losing a lot of bodyfat. I know a LOT of people who this has worked for - get in great shape and enjoy eating!
