Collected surrealist comics


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

Well, if you don't know who Edward Gorey is... Think surrealist comic book - surrealist like advertising art is surrealist: elegant models dancing with elephants, large everday objects falling on people and dogs doing clever implausible things.

The drawings are nicely done pen and ink illustrations. They are atmospheric above all else and have a distinctive flavor. The captions are matched to the drawings and may or may not relate directly to the scene shown. Together they build pretty little plots - surreal and without loose ends. Amphigorey is a bound collection of these short stories by Edward Gorey.

I recommend Edward Gorey to all. The drawings are excellent at creating an atmosphere and the stories are clever. (Obviously disregard my recommendation if you don't like surrealism.)

Spawn - book cover picture

This is one of those books that I assumed was self-published. Realy. While I didn't find any spelling errors I did fine enough logical and continuity errors to fail a freshman Lit student! The book was GREAT however!!! Read it, know it, be it!I wasn't aware that, when an abortion is performed in Britain, the fetus is sent to the basement in a basket where a depressed caretaker throws it in the incinerator!!! Well; USED too - now he does different things with those fetuses....
I'll leave Shaun to tell you about what.Anyway - loved it, didn't much manage to respect it - but LOVED it!!!

Great companion to a Java language guide

Java Pitfalls: Time-Saving Solutions and Workarounds to Improve Programs - book cover picture

This book is wonderful. It contains a bunch of problematic situations that have been documented with clear, concise examples of how not to fall into traps. It is well written, and very beneficial for a Java developer with, say, 1 year's experience and who has mastered the language syntax, but who now wants to have a better insight into the trickier bits. For example it has excellent coverage of ways to deal with outOfMemory errors, and a good section on SoftReferences. It does not in anyway replace a Java language guide, but is a great companion.

I am so glad that I own this book! I had a sick baby and had been to the Drs several times only for them to find nothing wrong... I used the book and looked up some of the symtoms that my six-month old was having and found the answers!!! I was so encouraged by the loving and intelligent approace of Dr. Sears (et all) - I would recommend this book to anyone with a child... even if it's just to have on hand for a "second" or "first" opinion!

Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher (Helix Book) - book cover picture

As a student of physics, I came to appreciate the teachings of Richard P. Feynman. In Six Pieces, the lectures he presents are both clear and simple. The book is a small sample of the larger collection, The lecture series, but in a small digestable chunks that everyone interested in how physics works will fully appreciate. As a teacher of physics now, I often brouse through these lectures to get ideas of how my lectures should flow, as did Feynman's did. I hope to see more of these lectures in small books that illustrate the true nature of how things work. J.Camarena. Van Nuys CA.

Thought it was going to be something else


Book title: Fall on Your Knees
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Fall on Your Knees - book cover picture

I don't know why, but I thought this was set in the southern United States. Probably the reason for this was that many of Oprah's picks are. I was expecting something along the lines of A LESSON BEFORE DYING or THE BARK OF THE DOGWOOD. At any rate, I was pleasantly surprised to find this was set in Nova Scotia and is basically the story of five generations. I was reminded of THE SHIPPING NEWS in some ways, but after MacDonald pulled me into the novel, all similarities ended there.The story is basically about four sisters. All are ambitious yet have strong family ties. Parts of the novel are VERY funny and parts are extremely dark. VERY dark. But there's redemption at the end and overall I have to highly recommend this one.Also recommended: THE BARK OF THE DOGWOOD--A Tour of Southern Homes and Gardens--Hysterical and harrowing. The most shocking book I've read to date.

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

This book is Julia Quinn at her best. Not only can she write a story that has both humor and wit but she can create a touching scene in just a few words. Pulling on your heartstrings in one paragraph and then making you cry with laughter in another! The friendship between Simon and Daphne was wonderful to read and the attraction from the word go was exciting to watch explode. I also think I know who the mysterious Author is but I don't want to spoil it for anyone! I can't wait to read Anthony's story ... it is sure to be a fabulous read!If you enjoyed this book keep your eyes peeled for Julia Quinn's earlier books Splendid, Dancing At Midnight (which are soon to be re-released) and Minx! Each book is funnier than the next! Julia Quinn is priceless and perfection all rolled into one!

Feeling Good : The New Mood Therapy - book cover picture

It's important to mention that this is the one and only self-help book that has empirical support. It works; it's been proven! If you have mild to moderate depression, this book is likely to be tremendously helpful to you. If you have severe depression, this book is a great addition to therapy (Burns provides a checklist to assess your level of depression).

I'm a psychology student who has been depressed on and off throughout my life. I used the techniques in this book, and my depression completely lifted in a few weeks. It's not magic though. The techniques are very concrete. This book will help you identify and change the negative patterns of thought that keep you depressed, and keep your self-esteem down. As a psych major, I can tell you this book is a great example of the cognitive-behavioral school of therapy.

Do yourself a favor and read this book! It's a great option for those who are not completely open to therapy (or who can't afford it).

Excellent book for PostgreSQL developers

SQL Queries for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Data Manipulation in SQL - book cover picture

I was quite new to SQL but had done some reading on data modelling when I got this book about 18 months ago. I initially read parts of the book and have mostly used is as a reference reading relevant material for solving the problem at hand. The text is well written and so far I have always found clear understandable explanations of whatever I need to known. The index as well as the SQL syntax diagrams in the appendix are excellent.I am working with PostgreSQL and the best thing about this book is that so far every example and SQL construct I have learned from the book has worked well with PostgreSQL. (So - five stars to PostgreSQL too :)
