This was the first book of Brockmann's that I read and I became instantly hooked. I read this book until four o'clock in the morning to finish it. Nash is just what you want in a character - sexy, tough and mysterious with a bit of bad boy mixed in that just needs the right woman to bring out the good. Tess was a great compliment to Nash and the chemistry was believable. Now I am waiting for Decker and Sofia to get together! That should be an excellent book!

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly - book cover picture

I rarely read glad I am that I made an exception in this case! Kitchen Confidential is a must for anyone who likes to eat, and don't we all? It is riveting. After I read it I was in New York City and made it a point to eat at Les Halles (where Anthony Bourdain is the chef). It was wonderful! Also the bathroom was sparkling (read the book) and I peeked in to the kitchen and got a total thrill after having read the "scoop". So I highly recommend the book and I also recommend a trip to Les Halles when next you find yourself in the Big Apple.

Too Simple to believe

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

This simple form of taxation is painless. No more keeping receipts in a shoe box and missing 3 night's sleep from 4/11 to 4/15 every year! The bonanza will come from all the taxes not being collected on the "black market" economy.
Well written with adequate examples to answer most of your questions. This should be pushed ahead of the Social Security changes destined to be debated till any change would not be noticeable, and this plan would probably help the program.

River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (Science Masters Series) - book cover picture

Dawkins is one of the foremost proselytizers and explicators of Evolutionary Theory. His genius is not in just expounding on the mechanism or the methodology of evolution but how it relates to human beings in the modern world. In this short but readable work there are five essays dealing with mankind's beginnings, ancestry, traits, sex and whether a person is digital or analog (we are both - chemical and electric).One subject he returns to again and again is the timeframe of evolutionary change. Using non-technical language he discusses the evolution of the eye, the dance of honeybees, the purpose of purpose, good and bad traits. After starting at the beginning he concludes in the speculative future, reminding us of our place in the universe and the fact that we as a species have progressed until we are able to send forth probes into the depths of the heavens revealing who we are and more important, what we are.

I was a little skeptical about laying down the money for this, but I was going on a long road trip and figured I'd give it a try. By the time I was done, I had a little trouble enjoying any of my other audio books, as they suffer in the comparison.Unlike most books that are just read, this book is actually acted out [dramatized] with diferent actors for each part (not just the same person with a sound system to modify their voice.)While there are some things that are left out, they are not missed and the portions critical to the story remain. I found that the overall quality of listening to this was almost as good as reading the books, or seeing the movie.I originally owned the audio-cassette version, but I liked it so much I bought the CD set just in case anything happened to the first.

This book is exactly what I was looking for! I have always admired cartoons, and now as an adult of 28, I want to explore how I can create animation. This book goes through everything, from using pressure sensitive tablets for the first time, making homemade camera stands, using computer programs, and digital cams. It has lessons for drawing and exploring different medias, traditional and computer. The author really encourages you to explore, and you don't even have to be a great artist! If you are thinking about going into animation, this book is really for you! All the fun without the commitment and money to go to school.

And I Don't Want to Live This Life : A Mother's Story of Her Daughter's Murder - book cover picture

I first heard about Nancy Spungen from the movie "Sid and Nancy". Although I was familiar with The Sex Pistols and their music prior to the film. Nancy was a groupie that won the heart of Sid Vicious.
I picked up the book written by Deborah Spungen, Nancy's mother, as was completely enthralled. I guarantee that you will be fascinated by this true account from a mother's point of view. The book follows Nancy's life from beginning to end. Nancy was one messed up chick. She was a drug user and a schizophrenic who made everyone's life hell. Fascinating book. Read it.
I have read it about 3 times.

Everything you need to know to make your own sausages!

Book title: Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing

Binding: Hardcover
Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing - book cover picture

This is definitely the definitive book on sausage making. The explanation of how cures work and what they are for is worth the price of the book. I haven't found this information anywhere else. Add all of the other details on every possible aspect of home or professional sausage making and the book becomes a bargain! Several hints on working with the recipes: 1) I like to increase the spices from the proportions listed. Mix and then fry a bit and adjust thhe spices until you get the taste you want. 2) You can leave out the more exotic, "professional" ingredients such as soy protein concentrate. 3) You also might want to cut the recipes down. The smallest quantity the recipes are for is 10 pounds. I usually make 5 pounds at a time. If you are just starting out in sausage-making, this should be the first book you buy. There is an accompanying video that Kutas produced that is also a tremendous help.

Summer of Night (Aspect Fantasy) - book cover picture

I read this book when it was first released. It started falling apart from being read so much, so I had to throw it away. I've been trying to find this book for years, but coudn't remember either author or title. I bought and read Robert R. McCammon's "Boy's Life" at the same time, so sometimes confused the two. I'm glad to have finally found this books again and plan to buy the sequel, "Winter Haunting," once it's in paperback. This book is a good read and well worth your money.

Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth, Book 1) - book cover picture

My list of favorite Book Series: 1. Lord of the Rings 2. Sword of Truth (this one) 3. Shannara This is an excellent book. It does a bit too much forshadowing, but makes up for it with a great story with great characters and... general great everything. An example of foreshadowing is that the cover shows a scene in last 25 or so pages of the book. I was on the edge of my seat when... well I can't tell you but when you read this (which you should, and if you don't want to cause its so long, you'll do it anyway or else your entire existence will become meaningless because you'll have never read it (for real!)) So, read it or have your entire existance become meaningless because you never read this.
