Environmental Issues: Measuring, Analyzing, Evaluating (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

I began presenting an intro course on environmental topics, for which there is a mound of ordinary texts. It was hard to choose, and I doubted if much would be retained from set reading. McConnell and Abel's Environmental Issues, when I found it, proved to be the best choice. Though not comprehensive it sets achievable tasks for my students, gets them busy and both links several skills together and hones them. Since adopting it, I see definite improvements in interest, attention and achievement. It has even given me confidence to start adding modules from my own areas of interest, so clear is the design.

Improving Data Warehouse and Business Information Quality: Methods for Reducing Costs and Increasing Profits - book cover picture

I have been an information systems professional for several years now and I am happy to see that there is finally a focus on data as the asset it truly is. If I could put "certified data" on the Balance sheet as a separate line item, I would. I have been reading your book "Improving Data Warehouse and Business Information Quality" over the past several weeks and I have this ear-to-ear grin that some peers find disturbing. (Why does he get so excited about data?) High Quality Data=success.

Siddhartha - book cover picture

One day I was browsing through the bookstore because I had to read this book for my junior English class, and I was pleased by how short this book was. I never used to read too much, and It was this book that ignited my passion for reading. For a couple days after reading the book, I became detached from the world, from time, and from space, lost in a world of serene contemplation. The fact that a German author had such a deep understanding of Eastern philosophy amazed me. This is a must-read book!

Sullivan's Island : A Lowcountry Tale - book cover picture

Sullivans Island was an achingly beautiful,wise, humorous and tender story of a woman, Susan Hayes, who is going through a challenging time in her life. In coming to terms with all that is going on she shares her lowcountry upbringing on Sullivans Island in South Carolina, during the racially tumultuous 60's and 70's. Her mother neglects the children, feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of motherhood and an abusive husband. The children are instead raised by Livvie, a woman hired by Susan's father to look after "everything". Livvie takes charge and gives the children her heart and soul. Livvie teaches them about life and faith, in good and in bad times. This is a tale of coming to terms with who you are, how you got there and recognizing the past for what it was. This was an absolutely wonderful, heartfelt story. It is a story that touches your heart.

I couldn't put it down!

Book title: Sugar Blues
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Sugar Blues - book cover picture

I am not usually a big fan of non-fiction, self help type books, but I could not put this one down. What I liked most was the unique approach of this book. Rather than alot of abstract opinions, this is more of a history of the evolution of refined sugar and the effect it has had on humanity. The author sited case after case of illness and disease due to the intake of sugar, but in an easy to read and very interesting format. Even if you are not ready to make major changes in your life or diet, I would recommend reading this book. It's an eye opening experience!

"Billy Bathgate" was suprisingly moving...

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

I picked up Billy Bathgate expecting your typical gangster novel. Guns, molls, bullets, blood, etc. What I found was a really sweet story about a kid who falls in love with Dutch Schultz's girlfriend and ends up saving her life. That's the spine of the novel. That's it's heart. There's a lot of exciting, wonderful things mixed in there, but that's the story. And it is absolutley beautiful and stirring. Read it.

Heavy words about Light metals in a low weight format.

Book title: Light Alloys: Metallurgy of the Light Metals
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Light Alloys: Metallurgy of the Light Metals - book cover picture

A thoroughly digestible treatise on the subject of the light metals. Polmear's style keeps it relevant, concise and up to date. I bought the book for its section on Titanium, but the other sections, particularly those dealing with aluminium and magnesium, show an excellent balance of good theory and commercial application. Also pleasing to see is the 'right amount' of background information given in the right places. Five stars it certainly deserves. If you deal with light metals, it also deserves a place on your bookshelf.

Microsoft Office 2000 Comprehensive Course: Mastering and Using (Office 2000 Series) - book cover picture

I teach the MOUS certification courses for Office 2000, and this is a great text. Good mix of colorful graphics, easy how-to's and authentic projects that make the text really work. I also purchased the teachers guide and now have the powerpoints, assessments, etc., so the course can really be more effective. Hate to gush, but this is a great bargain, esp. whn you compare it to the single-category books that would end up costing you about $300.00

Thought Provoking! (5th Grade Class Combined Review)

Book title: The Giver (Newbery Medal Book)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Giver (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

This book is sad and somewhat disturbing, but very well conceived and written. It is not light fun reading, but it's worth the effort to get through it. Lois Lowry's words and descriptions made her alternate future world come alive.
A common complaint was that the ending leaves readers hanging. While it's good to make readers think, it's also nice to have a complete story. (The Giver's sequels also have this problem.)

Overall, this book was excellent for students in 5th grade or higher.
