The Odyssey of a Manchurian - book cover picture

I was unsure what to make of this book when I first ran across it. The title and colorful cover pulled at me, but the delightful story-telling style kept me reading.It's a sophisticated story about the adventures of a young Manchurian boy, an Oriental version of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, if you will.I enjoyed the story, but now that I have a son it takes on a whole new dimension. I'll be reading it to him years before he'll be able to read it for himself. It'll join the stories of Ruyard Kipling and J. R. R. Tolkien.Highly recommended.

Characterological Transformation : The Hard Work Miracle - book cover picture

As a graduate student in social work, I found this book enormously helpful in understanding how to integrate various psychotherapy approaches in professional practice. I checked this book out of the library so many times, I finally bought the book. His methods of how to facilitate personality growth in clients helped me understand myself in new and helpful ways. I feel I have grown tremendously from reading and digesting this book. Psychotherapy of the kind he writes about is truly a "hard work miracle"!

My Life With the Chimpanzees - book cover picture

My 8 year old was assigned to do her monthly book report on a biography. She wanted to read about Abraham Lincoln... until she found out she had to dress up as the book's subject! Regrouping with a week to go and a driving vacation looming, I rushed to find a children's biography available in audio download... and stumbled upon this gem. We all listened to the (abridged) audio version on the trip, and I do think that hearing it read by the author added a great deal. My daughter read the unabridged book with fascination when we got home, though I suspect she might have had more difficulty relating to the book had she not heard Jane Goodall speak her own words first. At any rate, the report (outfitted with khakis, a notebook, and a velcro-handed stuffed chimp) was a great success, and my daughter has met a role model of determination, compassion, and wisdom.

Crowfoot Ridge shines as bright as a North Carolina dawn!

Book title: Crowfoot Ridge
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Crowfoot Ridge - book cover picture

Ann Brandt's first novel, Crowfoot Ridge, is a truly amzaing premiere work! It is rich with imagery and deep in emotional content. Despite the fact it touches on themes such as rape, murder, child molestation, lost innocence of youth and corporate greed -- it is not a "heavy" read in the least. Crowfoot Ridge's three primary characters (Avery, Sylva and Mars) are people who seem to jump right off the page. Avery's quest to re-establish contact with childhood friends (including a first love) winds up being so much more than a simple reunion with lost kindred spirits -- it is a touching lesson that emotional closure is as much a natural cycle of life as sunrise and sunset, winter and spring, birth and death.

Emperor Mage: The Immortals (Immortals (Paperback)) - book cover picture

This is one of my favorite books. It is so amazing. Anyone who doesn't like this book doesn't have a life. Anyone who hasn't read this book had better start reading. Tamora Pierce is such a good writer. All her books are my favorites, so I have a pretty long of favorite books. I love reading her books because they make me feel like I'm in the book. Any author who can do that has got to be the best author in the world!

Influence: Science and Practice (4th Edition) - book cover picture

This book is a readable presentation of a huge body of really interesting, crazy psychology experiements and their underlying theory. It tells you where science confirms conventional wisdom from mom or the used car dealer or the sneaky supermarket. You can use this stuff to your own advantage and you can be more aware as you are manipulated. It's very useful for the interested consumer, but very practical for anyone in retailing, marketing, pricing, product design or sales.

The Big Blowdown - book cover picture

I really liked this book. It is a perfect example of its genre -- hardboiled, 40s style, film noir, tough-guy-with-no-heart-of-gold fiction. I have lived in the DC area for over 30 years so I especially appreciated the geographical nuance. There is much more to this city than politics, media and sex. There is crime, gangs and sex, too. Pelecanos knows this intuitively and gives the reader a great ride thru the "seamy underbelly" of Washington, DC. Pelecanos has a keen understanding of the racial dynamics of the city in the 30s and 40s, which pervades our lives today. Overall, this is a really good story well told. I can't wait to read another of his books.

Book title: Three Junes
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Three Junes - book cover picture

Three Junes is a lovely read, one that begins strongly and only gets better. The story concerns a Scottish family and begins in June 1989. Paul McLeod, recently widowed, takes a tour to Greece, contemplating his future, his past, his family. Jump ahead six years and we are in Scotland, where Paul's three sons are preparing for his funeral. Jump again four years, to Eastern Long Island, a weekend get together with two of Paul's sons and Fern, a woman Paul met on his trip to Greece. It is hard to do justice to this novel in a few pithy sentences. The writing is beautiful and Glass gives us characters we can care about deeply. Their lives are complicated, but without any melodrama or pyrotechnics. Her writing is simply beautiful and I believe gets stronger as the novel progresses. I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful novel and highly recommend it. Enjoy.

Gooney Bird Greene - book cover picture

Talk about a versatile author! And laugh-out-loud funny, too. Teachers in grades 1-4 are going to love reading this one in classrooms. Gooney Bird is an endearing second-grader who has a lot of practical wisdom to dispense and is able to do it with verve and self-confidence (and while wearing a tutu!) Imagination really CAN change the tone of a classroom and this charming book will show everyone just how it does.
