C++ for Scientists, Engineers and Mathematicians - book cover picture

I have the second edition of this book, and have found it to be the best book of its type on the market (and I have bought several...). Though it may not suit undergraduates being exposed to C++ for the very first time, for research scientists and engineers actually wishing to use C++ in practice it provides an excellent grounding, and reasonably comprehensive coverage of all parts of the language. Also, unlike some books with similar titles it doesn't just present C type code with a chapter on classes (objects) tacked on as an afterthought. If I have a slight criticism, it is that perhaps there should be some in-depth examples of scientific/engineering problems programmed in an object-oriented way (i.e. as in Barton & Nackman's useful but now rather dated C++ textbook).

Shopaholic Ties the Knot - book cover picture

This is hands down my favorite book of the series. I read it on a plane and laughed aloud the whole way. I was still reading it at the baggage carousel, driving my husband insane because I was at the end and HAD to see what happens and couldn't help look for the bags. I'll admit Becky's problems are a tad unrealistic, but hey, they made me forget my own for a few hours, and isn't what books are for? I even laughed at the sneak preview of Sophie Kinsella's next book, which was at the end. I can't wait until it comes out. I love Sophie and hope she continues to write such fun books for years to come.

Welcome to the World, Baby Girl - book cover picture

Reading others' reviews, I can see how the book was simplistic and inaccurate at times. However, I loved it nonetheless! I read it in 1 1/2 days, simply because I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with the characters, and the ending was a surprise. I did wonder HOW Dena was so blind to her mother's secret, but the book made you believe that such ignorance was possible. It made me think about how times have changed so much over the past century. The problem Dena's mother faced would have never been an issue today, so the book made me thankful for the world I inhabit. It also made me think about the important things in life, such as family and friends. I reflected on the value of slowing down, and I realized that success can have too high a price to pay at times. This is a book that is good for your soul.

Luther : The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross - book cover picture

I just finished ?Luther? --WOW!! I loved it. I have a fascination with the songs of my youth and found Luther to be a treasure cove of information that will keep me occupied for sometime as I search out those songs on I-tunes and download them to my I-pod. Luther is a really fine biography. I was impressed with Seymour?s skillful and balanced writing?there were no bumps or style irregularities. Every word and paragraph smoothly integrated into a compelling and page turning description not only of Luther but the many interesting musicians who
influenced his life. When I appreciate a beautiful painting I notice how the painter?s colors and brush strokes are confidently in harmony. I felt this way about Seymour?s writing?it was harmonious and authoritative. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Neuroradiology - an excellent review

Neuroradiology: The Requisites (Requisites in Radiology) - book cover picture

Neuroradiology is a must for every Radiology resident. It is an excellent introduction to the complex and fascinating subject of neuroradiology. Unlike most medical writing, the book has humor and is "conversational" keeping the reader involved. It covers not only the anatomy and pathology involving the brain and spinal cord, but also the orbit, sinuses, and neck region. Strongly recommend to every radiology resident and any budding neuroradiologist. Awaiting the 2000 edition!

I've never written one of these reviews, but this is one of the treasured books in my library. I've owned it since it came out and continually refer to it for advice and council. I have also given it to many customers. Kyocera's website is also an inspiring to place to see how Mr. Inamori put his philosophy to work to bring a legacy of business success worldwide. His people-practices would change the world if practiced.

The Soprano Sorceress (Erde Series) - book cover picture

I enjoyed the cross-over between Iowa and the world of magic and music. Singing and breaking things is my kind of accidental, blundering kind of fun, with an intelligent level-headed woman trying to keep touch with her daughter back in her own world. It was a fast, entertaining read, because I never knew what would happen next. I am waiting for the less expensive paperback version, not very patiently. . .

Adobe Photoshop Master Class: John Paul Caponigro, Second Edition - book cover picture

To sum of us Photoshop is more than a tool but an experience. Photoshop allows the creator to expand on their vision. To grow past the limitation of the analog and into a domain that has few visual limitations. This book is a great guide to that experience. I had the good fortune of seeing Mr. John Paul Caponigro lecture several years ago ;hence, was very pleased with the completion of his book. He opened my eyes and my mind to concepts and capabilities both at his lecture and with the book. The book is detailed, insightful and revealing. However, It is not a document for the beginner but for someone that wanted to expand their creative skill to a level they did not know was there.

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

To me, it's impossible not to like this book. Better than the first. It was recommended to me by a 5th grade teacher at a used book store in Des Moines, IA. We ordered it; as the one bookstore in our town (Population 24,000) did not carry it or the first one. I loved the first one, but the second book was better because, to me, it was more adventurous and suspenseful. I can't wait for Prisoner of Azkaban(October 1999 in US) to come out. From what Iv'e heard, (I'm not positive) there are going to be seven books in the series, one for each year spent at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. The first and last parts of Sorcerer's Stone gave a bit of history, and taught a bit about you-know-who. All around, everyone needs a copy!

Whistling in the Dark : An ABC Theologized - book cover picture

The third and final installment in Buechner's lexicon-style expositions, Whistling in the Dark looks at words that might not be considered "religious" but that deal with the topic nonetheless. Hitting topics such as abortion, this book hits a bit more into politics than the previous two. Be forewarned that some of the entries are somewhat darker and even a little depressing. Although not as good as "Wishful Thinking", it is on par with "Peculiar Treasures" and superior to most "religious" books available today. This is another one to read and ponder again and again.
