Whittaker Chambers : A Biography - book cover picture

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the latest book about the Clinton White House and the defense of communism by the Democratic Party. Oh, wait this was the prequel to the Clinton White House. All kidding aside, the book was a pleasure to read and gave many insights into the eras that made up the thirties, forties and fifties. This book is a must reading for any person interested in history. I also found it interesting to draw upon the paralels with what happen to Whittaker and the defens provided to Mr. Clinton. Unfortunately, we have repeated the mistakes of the past by electing Clinton to the presidency. When will be learn?

A Widow, a Chihuahua, and Harry Truman: A Story of Love, Loss, and Love Again - book cover picture

This little book provided more help than any grief counseling session I have attended. I quickly identified with the author, and could not put the book down until I had come to the end, and then I wanted to start over. Having recently lost a husband unexpectedly, and soon after, my beloved cat, I, too, recently adopted two shelter kittens, and they have helped me tremendously. Not only do I feel needed in this big empty house, but they provide laughter and enjoyment as well.

Excellent Introductory Text on ODEs


Book title: Applied Differential Equations, Third Edition

Binding: Hardcover
Applied Differential Equations, Third Edition - book cover picture

This was the required text when I took differential equations back in the early 80s. As a sophomore engineering student, I found the book to be easy to read and easy to learn from. It is especially nice that the book has very few errors/typos in it. I have gone back to this book many times in the intervening years (in graduate school and beyond) and I continue to go back to it as an excellent reference. In fact, the copy that I purchased back in 1982 is starting to come apart and I was happy to see that it is still available.I am currently an engineering professor and I teach an applied mathematics course to senior level honors students. I find that I frequently go back to Spiegel's book for examples and explanations that I can present to my class when I am covering differential equations. This is still one of the best introductory texts on differential equations that I have come across.

Finally a fantasy series worthy to be called Tolkienlike

Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth, Book 1) - book cover picture

Though I am only 13 I have read many fantasy series and this is the only one that I think shares many qualities with Tolkiens best work. Goodkind's characters are mysterious, lovable, and hateable. Richard Cypher is the essence of good in this world while Darken Rahl is the demon that lives in everyones soul. As you read the book you grow and learn with the characters. This book is witty with superb effects that are used excellently by Goodkind. He brings a joy to his writing that makes you yearn for more. This book is riveting it will grab your attention right away and hold it throughout the book. I remember that when I first started the book I could literally not fall asleep until I finished it. In fact to make sure that I had grasped all the hidden meanings I read it twice and found it intrigueing. Goodkinds novel is nothing short of awe-inspiring!

Oyster - book cover picture

To the bleak setting and fast pace reminiscent of Louis L'Amour, Turner Hospital adds the philosophical depth and urgency of a Joseph Conrad. Her deft use of time warps and her creation of a sympathetic main character add drama, suspense, and excitement to what might otherwise be a dark and heavy reading experience. Unique in setting, theme, and plot, this is a compelling novel sure to captivate and hold the interest of even the most sophisticated reader.

Six Armies in Normandy : From D-Day to the Liberation of Paris; June 6 - Aug. 5, 1944; Revised - book cover picture

Mr. Keegan's style is great in the descrpition of the battles and providing appropiate maps for reference. My only complaint is that certain parts of invasion was negelected for other ones. For example,Mr. Keegan description of the US 101st and 82nd parachute drop at southern end of invasion beach was great, but their britsh counterparts got just a few paragraphs. In descrpition of the beach landings the Canadian beach got described but the American and British ones got a superficial survey. This is of course with all respect to Mr. Keegan whose many books i have enjoyed.

Acupressure's Potent Points: a Guide to Self-Care for Common Ailments - book cover picture

As a professional massage therapist, I have used and recommended this book to clients, and others, for nearly 15 years. It is one of the most well written and easy to use books, for the layperson, I have found. The index lists a wide range of common ailments, just as stated in the title. Each section describes & illustrates the point location, with a short explanation of what each point relates to. In addition are exercises to assist in releasing pain and tension, from carpal tunnel to migraines and more. As a companion book I would also suggest The Acupressure Warm-Up by Marc Coseo. And for those who would like to explore further I highly recommend The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister which incorporates the ancient Japanese practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
