Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers - book cover picture

Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers is a fascinating work that traces the cultural history of lesbianism in the United States -- providing a broad and thorough overview of lesbianism's diversity, its relationship to feminism, and its evolving forms of resistance in relationship to the oppressions of the dominant culture. Perhaps what is most impressive about this book is that while it is an impressively researched and intellectually stimulating piece of scholarship, it is also an extremely engaging read. Faderman draws the reader into lesbian cultural history in a way that is never clinical, but compellingly human--under her treatment, the lesbian subculture emerges in all of its varied complexity, its celebratory subversiveness, as a fascinatingly rich and vibrant culture of historical, political, and sexual significance. This book is a marvelous introduction to lesbian culture and history . . . it is entertaining, empowering, and utterly engaging.

REVIEW IS ABOVE. In this space are just a few questions for you, George Lucas, assuming you read these reviews. One: In this book, are you saying that the Force controls destiny, and that it is literally all-powerful? Two: Obi-wan Kenobi says that the Force "binds the GALAXY together"; what about OUTSIDE the galaxy? Does the Force exist there? COULD it exist there, if a Jedi or something spread it there? Well, THANK YOU FOR LISTENING, MR. LUCAS. If possible, please respond to these questions through a "review by the author (you, in this case)".

Williams Obstetrics (Williams Obstetrics) - book cover picture

As a woman who has had a history of difficult pregnancies (including unexplained fetal demises), Williams Obstretrics was indispensable to me in my search for the causes of my missed abortions (late miscarriages). Many doctors feel the less patients know from firsthand sources (such as this book), the better it is. But for me, Williams Obstretrics answered many questions not only regarding my losses but also in my uncomplicated pregnancies. OBGYNs don't need to be told about this book; they swear by it. I think their patients should too.

Both of Ms. Hadady's books are fantastic. Personal Renewal is my favorite. I feel her abundant wisdom is a blessing and a gift of health to us all. Her book is expressed in a concise, easy to follow manner. She addresses healing body, mind and spirit for a complete luminous you! I highly recommend this book to everyone. You will love the way you look and feel if you do. Undo the internal knots and glow!

Trollope thought it a failure, I disagree

He Knew He Was Right (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

In his autobiography, Trollope zips past this story. I couldn't put it down, and read the last 40 moving and exhausting pages aloud to my wife. The Pallisers can get a bit wearying at times, though I love them all. But there is nothing tiresome in here; this book roars with its two intersecting plots and the relatively unique idea of making a sympathetic character, one whom you truly care for and about, a complete, irredeemable fool.Several strong secondary characters, all just a little more complex than they seem, combine with a knock-out plot and vivid main characters, to make this my favorite Trollope novel. The man who will not accept the good around him but prefers to see the bad...? How's that for an eternal theme?

The Dam Busters (Pan Grand Strategy S.) - book cover picture

I first read this story as a freshman in high school and couldn't put it down! I have re-read the book several times since then. The adventures of 617 Squadron have all of the elements of an Indiana Jones movie; from the most inovative, fantastic, and bizarre ideas (five-ton bouncing bombs to ten-ton, earthquake producing "Tall Boy" bombs) to shear, white-knuckle, edge-of-your-seat danger (low-level night flying over Nazi Germany). Check out Paul Brickhill's "The Great Escape" and "Reach for the Sky." You won't be disapointed

Valhalla Rising (Dirk Pitt Adventures (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I continue to enjoy Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt series. I found this book to be up to the standards I have expected, and then some! Cussler's ability to handled multiple plots and "toenail" them into a final solution at the end of the story has made me a confirmed member of "Cussler's Crusaders". If you enjoy adventure and the good guys against the bad guys, you can't go wrong with any of the books in the Dirk Pitt series. They are easy readers without all of the techinical B.S. that seems to be used as filler by some writers. Enjoy yourself and get this book,then read the others!!!

A real good first novel

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

I just finished the book and I have to say it was well worth reading. It is a story of human determination. We get to see just about every side of humanity is this book. There is humor and loss and sacrifice and so many other aspects that makes for a real good story and all woven together in a believable main character who keeps having to push himself to be more in order to help save the Earth.

If you are a fan of military sci-fi stories, then I highly recommend reading Orphanage.

The best grad-level book on this subject I've seen

Book title: A Modern Course in Statistical Physics
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
A Modern Course in Statistical Physics - book cover picture

This is not a book for total beginners, but those with a good math background and at least a rudimentary understanding of thermodynamics should be able to bring their knowledge to a very high level by diligently studying Reichl's text. The book starts out with a couple of chapters on "non-statistical" thermodynamics and a few chapters on probability and stochastic processes; this provides a firm foundation for the equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics to which the latter two-thirds of the book is devoted. Throughout the book the explanations and derivations are very clear, and the inclusion of worked sample problems is a definite plus. Highly recommended for any grad student (or advanced undergrad) in physics, materials science, etc.

Get Paid What You're Worth : The Expert Negotiators' Guide to Salary and Compensation - book cover picture

Pinkley and Northcraft share the insight they've acquired through research on how employers positively view candidates who negotiate professionally at the start of a position and the difference this can make professionally and financially over the long run. I like the practical tips this books has to offer that I would of never considered negotiating (i.e. student loans)as well as the web sites and resources it references. I also thought the book was very easy to read and offered concrete scenarios and negotiation situations to get the points across.This book made me aware of the importance of negotiating a salary when starting a new position, but also that it's possible to negotiate a salary at any time in a job. I was able to successfully negotiate my title and salary by $10,000 by being informed of "my worth."
