Cue for Treason - Best of Its Genre


Book title: Cue for Treason

Cue for Treason - book cover picture

It is rather difficult to rate one particular book as the "best" of its genre but that is exactly what I believe to be the case with Cue For Treason by Geoffrey Trease. Proof you may ask? Try twenty- one years of teaching and reading it aloud to Grade 5-8 students and never personally tiring of the story. Or, how about always having students want to read the book on their own after it has been read to the class. The story - a young boy's adventures in Shakespearean England - is so adeptly crafted that the reader is reluctant to stop at the end of each chapter. The main characters interact with some of England's greatest heroes in a manner that is both believable and exciting. There are few books in children's historical fiction that can evoke a time period and tell an adventure story so well.

With William Burroughs: A Report from the Bunker - book cover picture

The usual cold-fish attitude so closely associated with Burroughs is bowled over by a brilliant, funny-funny man who, through some divine intervention is seemingly unaffected by his "habits". This book is far better than a biography written by some wanna-be author who ran out the day before the interview and bought Naked Lunch. Observe the happenings and processes Burroughs goes through during his creative process and revel in the true glory of Bill Burroughs

A Mother Loss Workbook: Healing Exercises for Daughters - book cover picture

I found this book to be extremely helpful as I went through the process of mourning the loss of my mother. It helped in so many ways! I was able to understand my mixed feelings. I felt almost like I had lost my identity--but this book, chapter by chapter helped me work through all my different emotions. I feel like I am no longer lost-without the "anchor" of my family! I remember joyfully all the happy family times with my mother and I feel I have come to know a lot more about the person she was- I highly recommend this book to anyone who has lost their mother recently or many years ago!

Word of Mouth Success Summer 2004!


Book title: The Rule of Four
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Rule of Four - book cover picture

Everyone is going to want to get their hands on "The Rule of Four" this summer. But be aware that it is not "The Da Vinci Code". It has more in common with "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt. The writing is much more literary and I actually jotted down several phrases to savor later ("...and the needle of destiny tightened its stitch and shuttled on."). The story is not particularly unique but it doesn't matter. You won't put this book down until the end. Two young men ready to graduate from Priceton University in 1999 are on the brink of solving the mysterious puzzle of a book published 500 years earlier in 1499. The "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" is a real book and remains an enigma today. It contains coded messages and discusses "cinematic visual images" and other concepts ahead of the time in which it was written. The "Rule of Four" is totally fascinating.

Absolutely spectacular.


Book title: Eat the rich
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Unknown Binding
Eat the rich - book cover picture

This book is at least as good as P.J.'s previous best, "Parliament of Whores", a book that I didn't think could be topped. It is spectacularly funny, cogent and persuasive, and actually more than a little informative. It may be that you couldn't actually teach an economics course from it, but there are doubtless worse books to use that are being used for just that purpose; if you used this book to teach a beginning survey course in econ, you'd at least keep more of your students awake and paying attention than you would with most economics texts, and they'd certainly learn some basic principals from it.But of course, that isn't its purpose; its purpose is a) to make P.J. a bunch of money, (at which it's no doubt succeeding admirably), b) to be screamingly funny (at which it also succeeds), and c) to argue for the benefits of a free-market economy, (which it does very persuasively.)A must-read.

Nice synthesis


Book title: Decision Making and Forecasting
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Decision Making and Forecasting - book cover picture

Nice synthesis of decision making problems in a triadic framework of data collection, forecasting and decision making. The tools for decision making such as influence diagrams, decision trees, and analytical hierarchy process discussed with rich examples. The book title is a misnomer as far as forecasting techniques since it lacks any discussion of any forecasting techniques. Otherwise, it is a novel presentation on decision analysis. The forecasting aspect refers to the forecast information that will reduce uncertainty in the decision making situation. Forecasting is, thus, an information acquisition decision, the soundness of which depends on the "value of information," a recurring theme in this book. A must for all management scientists and decision analysis professionals with an inquiring mind. This book is one of my prized possessions.

e-Data: Turning Data into Information with Data Warehousing (Addison-Wesley Information Technology Series) - book cover picture

I consider myself a data warehouse expert (or at least the end-users that I support consider me one!), but I like this book for its clear explanations of terminology and concepts that I must have run into hundreds of times but probably couldn't explain to save my life (i.e. "affinity analysis"). I already understood quite a bit of the material in this book, but credit Ms. Dyche for presenting it in a fresh and un-jaded way. I ended up buying 14 copies of this book for my end-users (who I imagine are its target audience), and they each got something out of it. e-Data fulfills its intended purpose.

excellent reference book

The Biological Chemistry of the Elements: The Inorganic Chemistry of Life - book cover picture

I'm a fourth year going next year to grad school in bioinorganic chemistry. This is the kind of book I wanted to have as reference for a long time. It covers the biological chemistry of each element, explaining why different metals are used in different systems. It is the first book that I found in which it is explained why only Co and Ni form organometallic bonds and not the rest of the transition metals. It is true, it is a chemistry book, but that's what I needed. The figures and the language are great, and the references at the end of each chapter are very useful. It is updated (october 2001), something very important in biochemistry. In short, a great reference!

this book blew me away


Book title: Life of Pi
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Life of Pi - book cover picture

It has been a long time since a book "blew me away." I picked up this book because it won the Booker Prize (reliably indicates a terrific book). After looking at the cover and reading the blurbs I was hesitant to even begin reading it. It seemed like it might be sort of "corny." Well it wasn't. The ending of this book - to use an old fashioned phrase - blew my mind. Highly recommended.
