The Empty Mirror : Experiences in a Japanese Zen Monastery - book cover picture

I was first required to read this title in an Introduction to Buddhism course in undergraduate school. Since then, I have read probably two dozen books on Zen and/or Buddhism and I owe it all to 'The Empty Mirror.' The author has done a great job of describing life in a Zen monastery, the Zen koan, and it's a great introduction to the religion/philosophy. I'd recommend it to any student of religion, philosophy, or Zen Buddhism or anyone wanting to expand their knowledge on Buddhist monastic life. Janwillem Van de Watering does a good job of keeping the reader interested with light humor and a mix of day-to-day experiences during his stay at the monastery.

Queen's Own Fool : A Novel of Mary Queen of Scots - book cover picture

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was gripping throughout the entire story and it wa s hard to put down. I enjoyed the fact that it took romance, adventure, history, and mystery and braided them into a beautiful story. I thought Nicola, La Jardiniere, was a great character and truly had everyone's heart. Her loyalty towards the queen and the queen herself add to the story. I love this book! It is definetly on my top ten list!

The BEST Shyness book on the market!!!

Shyness: What It Is, What to Do About It - book cover picture

Stanford Professor Phil Zimbardo obviously knows his material. In a clear, and easy-to-read style, Zimbardo presents the essential details on shyness and social anxiety. While the book was written in the 70's, most (if not all) new research supports Zimbardo's founding text on shyness information. It truly is a must read for anyone who is shy, or anyone who knows someone else who is. FIVE STARS!!!

The Zone: A Dietary Road Map to Lose Weight Permanently : Reset Your Genetic Code : Prevent Disease : Achieve Maximum Physical Performance - book cover picture

I've herd alot of wonderful things about THEZONE but quite frankly I think that it wasn't written to be understoodd by the average person. One of my co-workers went out and bought the book and was very excited, I having lost weight myself was thrilled for her. The next day she came into work more frustrated, and confused, and very bitter feelings about the book. I asked if I coulc lookat it during break and was absolutly shocked and amazed at the way the book was written. I am very disapointed. I just hope if enough people request, that they will come out with "A ZONE DIET FOR DUMMIES" because I personaly never felt so stupid in my life.

Belgarath the Sorcerer - book cover picture

I had begun to read David Eddings books, Belgariad while I was studying in London during the late '80's and l was hooked ever since. Belgarath the Sorcerer explained a lot of things that had left unanswered in Belgariads and Malloreans..Like all other David's books this one have all the ingredients to make you just wanna read the whole book at one time.. It was definitely worth waiting for and l would strongly recommend to those guys who want to read science fiction book to go out and purchase Belgarath The Sorcerer right now...Go on guys you will never regret it.. David Eddings books were the only science fiction books that l had a passion for although l'd tried to read others... Hopefully there'll be another one on Polgara ...I'm looking forward to read about her... keep up the good work David!!! you got one loyal fan here in Malaysia..Is there any way l can be informed if the story on Polgara is published..I would like to get it the soonest possible..

A civil account of the civil wars.

The Civil War (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

Like his "Gallic War," Julius Caesar's account of the civil war between himself and Pompey has been called propaganda (he does speak of himself in the third person after all), written intermittently by a very busy man engaged in many other "affairs", to justify himself and his actions to the Senate and people of Rome. If this is so I would happily cast my vote for any candidate who could write with such lucidity and straightforward style, even if that candidate harbored imperial aspirations of his own.

Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs Dunphrey - book cover picture

I recently read Don't You DARE Read this Mrs. Dunphrey a few weeks ago. I thought this was a sad, yet thrilling book telling a young girl's (Tish) struggle with life. Mrs. Dunphrey assigned her English class to write in a journal once a week, but if they marked the top of their entry DON'T READ THIS, then she wouldn't read the entry. Tish gives her a few tests; then begins with her life. Her abusive father left her family when she was younger, but comes back later on. Tish must soon take care of her younger brother, Matt when their mother leaves them. She has no money, except what little she makes from a local burger resturant. I highly reocommend this story to anyone who is interested in a great book!

Monica's Untold Story: An Amorality Tale - book cover picture

Read this book!! "Anonymous" hits the nail on the head with this pathetic tale of a misguided lass who doesn't realize the fool she's made of herself. Written in an appropriate, fairytale manner, this "Untold Story" is an entertaining encapsulation of the reasons why Miss Lewinsky is a godsend to the likes of Leno and Letterman. The tragedy is, The First Intern is the personification of a society that is plunging headlong into Existentialist Hell.
