The Entrepreneurial Adventure: A History of Business in the United States - book cover picture

I am the author, and Richard Panton is right with many of his comments. I eagerly await the opportunity to revise this in light of some of the 1999 (when the final editing was done)-present developments. About the only one I would seriously revise is that I expected the tech sector, even with the down turn of 1999, to come back sooner. I still think it will, but there are important structural barriers that have not yet been solved, including "last-mile" hookups, the final disposition of the Bell/Baby Bell cases, lingering effects of the Microsoft lawsuit, and the intervention of world terrorism.

I hope to get the chance to start a new edition very soon.

an excellent technical overview of broadband


Book title: Broadband Access Technologies
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Broadband Access Technologies - book cover picture

As the move of the internet towards broadband becomes ever more obvious, "Broadband Access technologies" is a wonderful book that will teach you how these technologies work. It goes through xDSL, cable, fiber, HFC, satellites, LMDS, MMDS, next generation internet, ATM vs IP and lots more.It will tell you how these technologies work, how they compare with each other, what the costs involved are, what the regulatory framework is and could become. It is a one stop book, as you don't have to go through a book on each of these tecnologies.It can be easily inderstood by a non telecom engineer (as myself) who wants to understand the battle going on in the tech world

Starfighters of Adumar (Star Wars: X-Wing Series, Book 9) - book cover picture

This book was hilarious. It was nice to see Wedge finally taken care of (I'm avoiding spoilers). It was also nice to see a Wedge being a rogue, and him having fun for once (and later kicking the bad guys' rears!). I think it's one of the best Star Wars books written. I love Mr. Allston was able to combine both his usual great sense of humor and a more serious view on everything, all the while introducing a new situation that our wonderful Rogues haven't gone through before. This is a great standalone book, however, I encourage anyone to read all of the books. It'll make more sense. Anyways, how can you say no to a good, funny book!

a real page-turner


Book title: Franny and Zooey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Franny and Zooey - book cover picture

You may have read other books by J.D. Salinger, but you're missing out if you haven't read Franny and Zooey. This story is split into two sections and is based on a dysfuntional family, the Glasses. Franny, the youngest of seven, is a college-aged girl who is obsessed with reciting the Jesus Prayer. Throughout the book we learn that Franny is in self-crisis, and how her family members cope. As a teenager I was able to relate with her character, and this made the book so much more enjoyable. Yet another well written novel by Salinger...

Flags of Our Fathers - book cover picture

What a story. A sons love for a wonderful father could only have written this book with its forceful glory. In all wars kids go and men come back they that do, and try to fall back into civilian life but with great dismay many cannot. The feel of the country, parenthood, brotherhood and patriotism are all told exactly the way it was in those days. A crowning acheivement by a loving son. I read it in several segments and never once did I get through ten or twenty pages dry eyed. They were all heroes even if they would not accept it. The men of WW2 had to endure more that any of us did in the future, we can only be proud of them and as most have passed away let us always stand strong in the face of the world to protect our wonderful country in their honor.

Superb Book on Bosnia and humanity

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Love Thy Neighbor : A Story of War - book cover picture

This is a superb book. Maass provides an extemely readable and informative history of the conflict in Bosnia. But what makes this book so fascinating is that Maass also sheds light on the nature of humanity in general, and the hypocrisy of the United nations and the United States in particular. His thesis is that any society can be torn apartgiven the right circumstances and the wrong leaders.Read this book.

Ruffian vs. Seabiscuit


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

Reading these 2 books within weeks of each other it was difficult to compare the two. Both horses were so incomparable in their time, yet both so courageous and gave so much heart to their sport. I wish I could have been there to see either of them race. I can only give my opinion after reading about them. It would have been the greatest race of all times between Ruffian and Seabiscuit - she the greatest filly, Seabiscuit the greatest colt. Different times, different courses. Who knows. Both great horses, both great books!!! Ruffian is the tear-jerker of all times!!! Get a BIG box of tissues!!!

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, Book 1) - book cover picture

This was an amazing book. It kept me thinking for a while and I was so happy that it was only the first in a series! Lyra and her daemon made me wish that I had a daemon of my own, someone who I could never be apart from and who had to come everywhere with me. The characters in the book were so well described and so interesting that I remember dreaming about them every night and predicting what would happen next. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys reading...period! You will find yourself thinking about the characters non-stop and will be influenced greatly by Lyra's wonderful adventure.

Three Weddings and a Kiss - book cover picture

Ms. Woodiwiss has a gift. She is my favorite author. I wish they would make her books into movies (they would have to be mini series). I cry,breath,live in these books. They take me away form my ordinary everyday life.. I have read all the older novels at lest two to three times, waiting for new ones. You are wonderful Ms. Woodiwiss, keep up the wonderful work. Take your time, I will be waiting :>) P.S. I've got my mom hooked on these great love stories too....

We Love You and your work. Keep writing.

God Bless &
Best Regards,

100% Fun!


Book title: Riptide
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Riptide - book cover picture

I've read other books by Child/Preston (Relic and Reliquary) and found them fun but the writing just a little rough.But Riptide, now--Wow! They have really hit their stride on this one. The pacing is great and the thought they put into how to approach the diabolically clever puzzle of the treasure pit is impressive.I thoroughly enjoyed this book right to the end, even sneaking out to sit in my car at work to finish it! In the first few pages of the book, we are introduced to the main character, Malin Hatch, as a boy, and see the gruesome tragedy that shadows the rest of his life, but that will not be fully explained until the end of the book. Then we skip forward 30 years. Ladies and gentlemen, THAT's what I call a "hook!" I was certainly hooked until the very end.I'm certain you will enjoy this roller coaster ride of a book.
