Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

I am a child, and when I first saw this book, I thought that it was just another pathetic stab at a child wizard. Then I started reading it, and I couldn't put it down! J.K. Rowling takes all children's fantasies, and breathes life into them through Harry Potter. Such as flying on broomsticks, and wearing invisibility cloaks. Then Rowling takes children's everyday experience and puts them to life. Draco Malfoy is the "bully" at Hogwarts School of Whitchcraft and Wizardry, and when you read about Harry's troubles with him, you develope a loathing for Malfoy also. I highly reccomend this book, and I hope you enjoy.

Thoreau and non-violent protest against the government


Book title: The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail - book cover picture

While Thoreau was living at Walden, then President James K. Polk declared war on Mexico without Congressional approval. To protest this and the government, Thoreau refused to pay his taxes and was sent to jail. This play fantasizes on what might have been going through Thoreau's mind as he spent the night in jail: reflecting on his childhood, the life and death of his brother, his idol Ralph Waldo Emerson, what lead him to his solitary life at Walden and the impetus for his refusal to pay the taxes. I enjoyed reading this very much as it gave some insight into the great thinker who influenced the likes of Gandhi with his non-violent form of protesting the government.

Not just a great first novel...it's a great novel, period.

Eddie's Bastard - book cover picture

I started reading this book because of the interesting title at a B&N store. I couldn't put it down after the first 2 pages and found myself standing at the checkout line ready to buy a book at full purchase price (which I normally don't do).The only disappointing thing with this novel is that it ends (as all novels must). Kowalski could have kept writing and I would have kept reading Eddie's story and family history until my eyes fell out of my head. It's that engrossing. It is a simultaneously personal and historical piece of writing, the likes which I have not seen in a long time. I eagerly anticipate Mr. Kowalski's next book.

Suspense plus humor = A Great Read!


Book title: Hollywood Tough : Double (A Shane Scully Novel)

Hollywood Tough : Double (A Shane Scully Novel) - book cover picture

"A fine mess you've got me in", the chief of LAPD might have said to Shane Scully, who has been authorized to set up a phony film production company, at LAPD expense, as an elaborate sting to bring down a Mafia wiseguy who's trying to take over the Hollywood craft unions. As the budget on the film spins wildly out of control, and Shane is confronted with the insane egos of Hollywood agents, actors, writers, directors and studio executives, the book gets very funny as well as suspenseful and full of surprises. Hollywood Tough is a must read for all crime novel addicts!

Great Tools & Concepts

Marketing Management: Strategies and Programs (Mcgraw Hill Series in Marketing) - book cover picture

One of the best marketing books i've read! The authors do bridge the knowing-doing gap. Most books focuse on the strategic plan of marketing or on a specific area or buzzword, forgetting the everyday work. This team managed, with excelence to convey a lot of practical knowledge with solid theoretical foundations, this makes this book a pearl that is accessible to those not having solid foundations, minimizing the risk associated with the implementation of apparently linear concepts. For those more experienced, the cristal clarity of the presentation and some of the long forgotten perpectives will be extremely interesting. In a sentene: fit for both the neofit and the tried and tested. Excelent work - 9 points on a 0 to 10 scale.

Worth 95$?


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

"Daytrippers" by Hugh Brune is a very entertaining and odd novel about a hectic day across the chunnel in London--but I am staggered that used bookstores are selling this out of print work for close to a hundred dollars. This seems to be exorbitant. For that price you could fly to London on a discount and buy it there out a used bookshop. Worth the read for a normal price--but certainly not overwhelming or life-altering enough for a c-note.

A fun and entertaining read. Well worth buying.

Pearlman's breezy style and provocative insights makes for a great read. A great beach book and even better for subway reading. This is the kind of book that's hard to put down but easy enough to pick back up. You don't have to be a Mets fan to enjoy this book. All baseball fans and sports fans will find something here to sink their teeth into. Full of laugh out loud stories and all the salacious details you could ever want.

The Nanny Diaries: A Novel - book cover picture

This book kept me in its spell until I finally turned the light off at 5:00 am. I sympathized with Nan and wanted her to bail out of that awful job that I knew would end badly. On the othe hand I knew she had bonded with the child and could not abandon him as his parents had done.The authors were able to make the little boy come to life. Consequently, I fell in love with him and wanted to protect him from his unrealistic and confusing life at all costs.I did'nt want the story to end, and finished the book wanting to know more,more,more. I recommend this book to everyone who has ever loved a child and wants to give him/her the things that are really important in life

A Wonderful Summer book!

Welcome to the World, Baby Girl - book cover picture

Fannie Flagg has certainly done it again! Welcome is such a "welcoming" book; everyone has family like that, right? I was sorry to leave Dena, Gerry and Elmwood Springs. Can't wait to see what Fannie has in store for us next. I couldn't help but picture certain people who would be perfect for the movie, since it seemed solely written for that purpose. A quick, easy read for the summer!
