The Real James Herriot : A Memoir of My Father - book cover picture

Jim Wight has a warm and endearing style, revealing a fuller picture of this kind and gentle man, his father. The content is fascinating, taking the reader, again, to the beauty of the Yorkshire dales and moors, bringing tears of laughter and episodes of touching reality of simpler times that so many of us long for. Through this book, Wight shares with the reader many more events in his father's most interesting life. We come to know James Herriot more intimately, even after his death. The narrative is a beautiful tribute to a deep love of a son for a father. While reading "The Real James Herriot...", ever present was the memory of my unexpected chance meeting with him while walking along the path in front of his home a few years ago. This book reveals the gracious, polite and feeling man we were introduced to all those years ago in "All Creatures Great and Small".

History, humor and healthy recipes!

White House Cookbook, Revised and Updated Centennial Edition - book cover picture

This cookbook has something for everyone, from history buffs to healthy eaters. The authors have taken recipes from the original White House Cookbook used 100 years ago in the Grover Cleveland era, and updated them to meet the nutrient needs of people today- low in fat but high in convenience and taste. For example, corn pudding (originally made with eggs, heavy cream and butter) becomes Centennial Corn Casserole, with half the fat and calories. Also of interest are cookie recipes from Barbara Bush and Hillary Clinton, which have been lightened up. (I thought the "light" version of Hillary's cookies tasted better than the original!) In addition to healthy recipes, there is a wealth of interesting historical information about cooking in the White House 100 years ago and a touch of humor with health hints from the past (hair restorer tonic, cures for colic, etc). This book is a great recipe source, as well as an interesting read

An Ironic Icon


Book title: Desert Solitaire
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Desert Solitaire - book cover picture

Abbey's "Desert Solitaire" is a classic, and I can hardly add to the adoring comments others have already made.However, I can point out the irony the book itself represents. The people who hold the book up as an icon of the wilderness movement are often the very people Abbey would have deplored. For example, the mountain bikers who treat the Arches National Mounument as their own personal playground--who throw beer bottles around, play loud music, and leave bycicle skid marks on the slick rock--love Abbey's book and think of him as a "righteous dude," but their cavalier treatment of this natural wonder represents the very thing that Abbey condemns in "Desert Solitaire."I shed a tear everytime I reread "Desert Solitaire," for Arches has become worse than Abbey's greatest fears.

The Best Way In!


Book title: Shakespeare Stories
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Shakespeare Stories - book cover picture

These are stunningly well told versions of the plays.They give not only the story, but a wonderful sense of the theatrical - you read and enjoy a visual sensation as well as the speech of Shakespeare (all the words 'spoken' are taken directly from Shakespeare's scripts).Romeo and Juliet, for example, sweats in the heat of Verona. There is a fantastic image of wasps fighting! You go directly into the story - and moral considerations are there.The pictures support the text well- giving yet another dimension to the book.Forget Lamb!I've used these stories in the classroom for many years now - partly because young people (11 through to much older!) relate to them -but also because I really enjoy re-reading them.(There is a whole set of Abridged Shakspeare by Garfield too - and wonderful Animations done with Russian animators!)

More Naughty than Nice...

Naughty or Nice - book cover picture

I must say that I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one day. In this story, we meet three sisters:
Frankie - very much in control of her finances, has investment properties, etc, but no man. She results to the internet to find a man, but after so many bad dates (some of which Mr. Dickey made me laugh), she quits that altogether.

Livvy - married and up against infidelity from her husband. In return, she "heats" up her life as well. Her intimate trysts are very exciting and good to read.

Tommie - bohemian style and formerly battered. As a result she is finding it hard to warm up to a man. She finds one of interest though and relearns how to just let go and let a man do his thing.

This book was very good. It held my interest from page one to the end. Mr. Dickey's writing style is very easy for me to read and I enjoy how he infuses humor and drama all in one. This is a must read!

Trump : The Art of the Deal - book cover picture

This book will motivate you to succeed in business and in life. It's fairly obvious that some people will read the book and not have what it takes, but that's life. This book can teach you some good lesson if you read deeply into the deals and see what Trump did right. This isn't just a book for real estate professionals, the lessons hold true to any business. Above all of this its a great read, I couldn't put it down.

The Pyramid Principle: Logic in Writing and Thinking - book cover picture

I've used this book again and again and it never fails to yield up some new insight. It's simply the best book in its field. It's particularly good, of course, on structure; it gives you a way in to virtually every business communication. It has a very stringent rationale and fairly tough samples to go with it. Toward the end it mentions 'images' - I'd like this aspect of business writing to be dealt with in far greater depth. I haven't yet seen the 1996 edition, but I'll try to get a copy.

Probability and Random Variables : A Beginner's Guide - book cover picture

I must express how extremely happy I was when I started reading through this book and felt that I finally met a teacher who can teach statistics! This book gave me a well-rounded access to an area I had gotten sick of trying to search a proper introduction on. It helped me tremendously in really understanding the crucial fundamental concepts that are infact quite tricky, and therefore often reluctantly passed by many. With a straightforward and comfortable language along with all the appropriate maths... if it were not for this book, I personally would have probably never really understood statistics and perhaps would have just given up my interest for the subject for good.

The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity - book cover picture

This book was good from start-to-finish. It raises a lot of salient points, and I think this should be read. It is also readable, well-written, and very thought-provoking. (I had a lot of those "Why didn't _I_ think of that?" moments...)In response to the reader below, Strobel was not proving that there was a God. He was arguing that evil can coexist with the Christian God, and I think that is fair. These were arguments that were supposed to be incompatible with the Christian God, and Strobel simply showed that they were compatible.Is it arrogant to believe Jesus is the only Way? I think it's arrogant to believe you're a better person, yes...but not necessarily to believe you're right.That's about it. You should buy this book; it's quite good.God bless,Christinaphylus
