Wall Street Meat: My Narrow Escape from the Stock Market Grinder - book cover picture

Andy Kessler is a worthy follow-up act to Michael Lewis, and his Wall Street Meat is as fun and enjoyable as Lewis's Liar's Poker. I read this book cover to cover and was chuckling with delight all the way through.It really brings us upclose and personal with the biggest rogues on Wall Street. The portraits of Jack Grubman and Mary Meeker are especially compelling. I highly recommend this book - easy to read, lucid and with a sense of bemusement only a true new yorker can have...shame we have to wait for his next book

A Compelling Story

Travels With Charley: In Search of America - book cover picture

I first read this book when I was 12. At the time I thought it an entertaining book about a man I had never heard of an his journey across America. 4 years later I reread and rediscovered the book. The years have given me a new perspective on this book. Unlike Kerouc's solopsistic and dated "On the Road", Steinbeck writes with a genuine love of this country. He chronicles details with a writers flair but without the subtle arrogance of a book like "Making of the President, 1960". Steinbeck is distinguished in his eye for detail, he movingly tells of a small black girl being walked to school, her tiny, gloved, hand clutched inside that of a burly officer. Charley provides a light tone to the book amid telling commentary on the nature of America and such social trends as our migration to the suburbs. In summary, a compelling tale told in a loving fashion about idiosyncratic, genuinely decent people.

Old Master Life Drawings : 44 Plates (Dover Art Library) - book cover picture

This book is an excellent and accessible resource for students. It has clear reproductions to analyze and draw from at a very low price. While, the entire genre of master drawings can scarcely be touched with only 44 plates, a nice selection of drawings has been chosen. I recommend it for anyone beginning their collection of fine art books, students, or someone who wants to give the subject a try without blowing a bundle on an art book. An excellent resource!

Perfume : Complete and Unabridged - book cover picture

To hear Perfume narrated by Sean Barrett is a treat beyond the imaginable. While I can see that one who is reading this novel may become somewhat restless toward the end, the experience of listening to the unabridged cassette narrated by Mr. Barrett is unforgettable. The olfactory references are truly compelling as they roll off the tongue of the precise, meticulous narrator. This book, whether heard or read, is marvelous.

Are markets rationale?


Book title: Devil Take The Hindmost : A History Of Financial Speculation
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Devil Take The Hindmost : A History Of Financial Speculation - book cover picture

Best finance book that I have ever read. It walks through the history of speculation & the development of the different financial instruments (stocks, derivatives, etc..) Chancellor does a great job in both giving a historical perspective on the financial manias that have occurred and extrapolating out the common characteristics of what created the mania and deflated it. With a lot of evidence, he builds a very compelling case to question the commonly held belief that financial markets are both efficient and rational. Definitely worth a read.

True story of grisly murders in Brooklyn

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Murder Machine: A True Story of Murder, Madness, and the Mafia - book cover picture

This book was a breezer. I read through this book in less than 2 weeks. It really sucks you in and makes you read more. The story and plots are real and that makes the book a lot better. The true story and the graphic way they explain the grisly murders catches your attention and makes you cringe. Just the way they killed people, it didn' t even bother them or make them feel sorry about what they had done. Truly, a great book for a mafia buff.

The way he makes the world and the people come to life it is just like watching a movie. I like how he vividly explains every thing in the whole book it gives a better picture.

It is full of everything you could want in any book... It took a while to read this one but I read stone of tears a 9** page book in 5 days.

THE MYSTERYS OF GROWNIG.


Book title: Dangerous Skies
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Dangerous Skies - book cover picture

The book is like a mystery. Buck and Tunes are best friends through out the story. In the book Tunes is blamed for a murder she didn't do. I think the book is boring in some parts. In other parts of the book it was excellent. The reason I gave this book five stars was the book was packed with action, betrayal,and emotion. I think the dialogue was a little boring but the rest was good. The bad guy in this story was Jumbo Rawlin. Jumbo Rawlin is a nasty character in the book. This book tells whats it's like to live near water.
