Dr. Johnson and Mr. Savage : A Biographical Mystery - book cover picture

Richard Savage's sole claim to fame is that Johnson wrote a book about him. At the time it was written, however, Johnson wasn't very well known himself and was only marginally more respectable than Savage. Holmes does an excellent job of describing their relationship and showing us how Johnson lived before he bacame a tory sage. He provides an excellent counterweight to Boswell, who tended to play down Johnson's awkwardness and barely concealed rage. At the same time, Holmes never forgets that Johnson was a great writer and man.

Into Thin Air - book cover picture

Before encountering this book in summer of 2004 I'd never heard of Krakauer, or of the 1996 Everest Expedition gone awry, or ever climbed any mountains. Krakauer's writing is fantastic, his talent as a raconteur is unequalled, and his knowledge of the sport of mountaineering and its history is solid.

Krakauer makes you become intimately acquainted with each of the characters in his book; you will vicariously suffer the pain that they must have suffered, and you might despair over their harrowing experiences as one bad turn led to another.

In all, you will improve your knowledge of the perils and risks of high altitude mountaineering, and you will appreciate the fallibility of human reasoning at extreme altitudes. Most of all, you will appreciate the many sacrifices that Everest Expeditioners make for their clients.

A look at what the U.S. has not done for those it has used

The Debt : What America Owes to Blacks - book cover picture

"The Debt", in short, was a critical look at the result of slavery and legal racial intolerance in the US. It gave an in-depth legal look at the reperations paid to other ethnic or religious groups subjugated by their goverments, and why reperations were not paid to African Americans. It charges the U.S. to look at the color problem in this country and move to solve it by first not ignoring the still current effects of slavery. It is a book made to be read by those and only those who want the truth.

The American Prophecies: Ancient Scriptures Reveal Our Nation's Future - book cover picture

I thought the book revealed a great deal of Biblical (and political) truth. Mike has obviously done his homework; in Israel; in the Bible; & in America.

We are each directed to search the scriptures to check what we have been told with how it lines up with the word of God. Do it & you will have to admit that Mikes prophesies line up with the word.

As for his statements about out leaders, you'll either have to take his word for it or duplicate his research.

A Bend in the Road - book cover picture

I have never read anything by Nicholas Sparks before, but I felt that I have needed a change. I love the way he writes and it wasn't a book that had been "done before". I love books when you just can't put them down, and this I have to say was one of them. It is about Miles, a sheriff in a small town who has recently lost his wife. Just when he thinks he can't ever love again, Sarah comes into his life and changes it forever. Well, you'll have to read it to find out why, but I'll leave the rest up to you.

Business and Professional Communication for the 21st Century - book cover picture

Book is divided into four easy-to-read sections: relational life, work life, public life, and techno-life. Addresses such topics as listening, communication styles, workplace diversity, leadership, business etiquette, public speaking, stress and conflict, and computer technology. Handy reference for every day use. Toolboxes in each chapter provide self-analysis check list on various business communication topics. I highly recommend it for classroom, business, and for personal use.

well-researched and imaginative

Book title: Year of Wonders
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Year of Wonders - book cover picture

"Year of Wonders" is a beautifully imagined, well-researched book about a small village in England in the Year of the Plague, 1666. Told by the intelligent, observant young woman, Anna, this book will grab your interest and make you want to read straight through. Some of Anna's words, phrases, and verb forms are antiquated, although you will be able to grasp the meaning quickly, and take note in passing, of the richness of our English language. The village characters are well-defined, although each character has mysteries of his own, just like the people in our own lives. The theme is bleak and the losses are many, although there is lightness and joy as well. You'll become very familiar with this little medieval English village, and the turn of events at the end will come as a surprise.

If youre the kind of person who only reads a few books a year, STOP WHAT YOUR DOING,ORDER THIS BOOK AND READ IT NOW! This spellbindingly magnificent book is one of the only book series I have ever read. After my mom found the first book for me Ive read every book and even gone to the U.K. Amazon so I could get my hands on a copy of the newer books before they were published in the U.S..Those other books like Artimis Fowl, dont even compare, I liked the first and second but man was the 3rd twisted. I have read all the books and will keep reading them as they are published until the series is discontinued. DARREN SHAN RULES!!!!

Wonderful aid for improving movement health

Somatics: Reawakening the Mind's Control of Movement, Flexibility, and Health - book cover picture

This book serves as an excellent introduction to somatic education and the benefits available to those willing to do the exercises descibed in the manner (slow and easy) that Hanna recommends. As an educator and therapist I often recommend this book to clients who want to take responsiblity for their own well-being and hear nearly 100% positve feedback about the books usefulness. The explanation of the neuromuscular patterns of stress and trauma and how they contribute to negative aging, dysfunctional posture and chronic pain provide valuable insight helpful for sufferers as well as for the teachers and therapists who try to help. The drawback is the difficulty involved in learning new and unfamiliar movement exercises from the printed page and the pictures are not very helpful. But working with a partner who can read you the directions, repeating them as needed can be helpful. Audiotapes are available for solo work but I highly recommend reading the book first.

James Cameron's Titanic - book cover picture

I really loved this brilliant love story about Rose and Jack, and I just can't wait to read the book! Every time I listen to the cd I almost start to cry. When I saw the movie it was like I fell in love with the caracters, it's really not easy to discribe. For those of you wich have'nt seen it, I really think you should! It's one of my favorites at least! The only thing that seemed a bit unreal was that Rose survived, it must have been almost the same temperature in the water as in the air? Well, it's a great movie, and I never think I have cried so much in a movie before!
