True Notebooks : A Writer's Year at Juvenile Hall (Vintage) - book cover picture

One of the best books I have ever read, certainly the best this year. I feared it might be sentimental or preachy, but Salzman's approach is so fresh, honest, unexpected and funny. Strange to say about a book about juvenile deliquents, but it's totally entertaining. The characters are full and vibrant, and Salzman lets their voices come through in every chapter. The ending is surprising in its impact -- so moving, I couldn't breathe for a moment. I read this book in two sittings. I've liked all of Salzman's books but this may be his finest.

A book to get lost in...

The Shadow of the Wind - book cover picture

It just doesn't get any better than this if you are seeking living, breathing characters who you'll come to care about, high excitement and a complex and intriquing mystery. I loved this book and envy all who may be opening to those first pages right now, as they are in for a real treat. This wonderful novel really stays with you. Extremely well written and nothing appears to have been lost in the translation as even the occasional humor translates very well. I look forward to more from this author. Also recommend The Flanders Panel/ Gospel /The Quincunx /The Eight /The Magic Circle

Finder is a Political Visionary

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

Extraordinary Powers is the second in Finder's collection of four (to date) outstanding novels which, upon investigation, reveal some of the most enlightening political info and predictions of our time. His first book, Moscow Club, accurately predicted the Soviet coup just before its occurrence. His second, Extraordinary Powers, accurately predicted the exposure of a high ranking CIA mole. His third, Zero Hour, explains the pitiful security of the world's finance system (and thank God it hasnt come true yet!), and his latest High Crimes pre-dates by three years a remarkably similar tale as the one recently uncovered concerning former Senator Bob Kerrey's command in Vietnam. A truly informative and knowledgeable man with a knack for fantastic presentation, Finder's books are some of the finest around. Pick them up, and you won't ever want to put them down.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) - book cover picture

This book is wonderfully imaginative. From the viewpoint of both a good reader and a good writer, I would give it a higher 'star rating', if there was one. The woman who wrote this series is an astoundingly powerful writer. I couldn't put it down. When asked what I thought of it, compared to the other books, I would say that it is the all-around best, although the best ending would go to "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban". Teachers: Do NOT read this to your class out of order! The book sequence is one continued story, and it would be like reading the 23rd chapter to the end of Tom Sawyer, and then going back and reading the first chapter to the 22nd.

A very worthwhile summer read:

Book title: A Patchwork Planet (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
Rating: 5/5

A Patchwork Planet (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

Anne Tyler's A Patchwork Planet is one of the most charming books I've read lately. In the Seinfeld mode of really being about nothing, by the end of the book you know its main character very well and you are sorry to have to part with him. She makes you empathize with him, all the while wanting to kick him for his wrong decisions. She lets this character disclaim a number of profundities about the human condition that I will go back and reread in the future. Curl up with it on a rainy day and you will not be sorry!

The Farthest Away Mountain - book cover picture

This was one of the first books I read as a child. It plays on the imaginative whims of any young girl or boy; full of gargoyles, royalty, mystery, true love, and many other forms of fantasy that any child would adore. I would recommend this to anyone, from a 5 year old boy to a 95 year old grandmother. It is such a beautiful book, and I still own my copy that I first read at 6 years old. Parents, this book also makes good bedtime reading, and teachers, this book is perfect for story time in class.

Statisticians don't like this book - what a surprise!

Book title: How to Lie With Statistics
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
How to Lie With Statistics - book cover picture

For someone who has not read this book, the disparity in reviews is probably striking. Those literally looking for a statistics course, or especially statisticians, will be disappointed. This book is about understanding and interpreting statistics from a practical standpoint. Ignore the statisticians - they are being sensitive about how their work is abused. Ignore the students looking for a statistics book - that isn't the intent of Huff's work.This is one of my favorite books of all time. It helped me become a much more discerning consumer of news. This book is intended to help you better comprehend stat's that are thrown at you to make a point - which essentially means all stat's. Unfortunately, many times this is done is disingenuous ways, and this book will help you see through such foolishness.In short - buy this little book. It is one of the best book values you will ever find.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

If only there were a way to get the truth out in a way more than a few political junkies would read. Well, Al Franken -- with the help of 14 Harvard researchers to make sure he's got the facts straight -- does just that. This is much, much more than a fast, funny read (though it is that). It's serious stuff that will energize Democrats and perhaps even plant a seed of doubt in the minds of any "ditto heads" brave enough to read it and think for themselves.
