Cheaper by the Dozen (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

Cheaper by the dozen was a funny book about a family that had 12 children: 6 boys 6 girls. Set in the early 1900's, it is written by two of the children. My wife and I laughed on a regular basis as I read it to her. I guess the reason it was so funny is because we could see the stuff happening in our family. Although there is an occasional profanity (thus I won't let my children read it until they are older), it is ONLY occassionally. Some of the ideas that the father had I have implemented in my family. Although seemingly written for younger readers, it is enjoyable for adults (probably more so for adults).

Overdue - book cover picture

This book was really good. It started off while Kathleen was working at the library and sombody dropped off some murder books. So Kathleen thought it was a threat to her. Suddenly wierd stuff starts to happen to her friends and her. She tries telling her friends but nobody will listen. So Kathleen suspects anybody who acts suspicious.This book intrigued me. I was kind of mad at myself for not finding out the killer. And the ending was very sweet.

My friend, a gothic young man who, I guess I could say I loved, handed me the book one day and said, Raver,(which is what he called me) you gotta' read this. I started reading it on that friday afternoon. I was busy that weekend, but on Sunday night, I sat down to read it. I stayed up 'till two in the morning just to finish it. The all time best vampire book I have ever read, period. Extremely worthwhile. If I owned it, I would have memorized it by now.

Demian: The Story of Emil Sinclair's Youth (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

"Wer leben will muss eine Welt zerstoren"This in my opinion is the key sentence of one of the most fascinating books around, DemianWhat in the first few pages seems like an easy well readable story, quickly turns into a web of psycholgical intriges.Like in der Steppenwolf, Gertrud, das Glasperlenspiel, the main charecter of the book, Emil Sinclair, is not at ease with himself and is looking for something, but he does not know what.He does however find the missing presence in his life which is Arbraras.The atmosphere of the book is supreme and really Hesse like. Especially the distant presence of Demian throughout the book is fascinating. The struggle of Emil to breakout of the eggshell to welcome Arbraras into his life is described outstandingly well. If you like Hesse, you will love Demian

Getting Started in Options, 3rd Edition - book cover picture

First of all let me warn you ... "You will have to read this book atleast twice!". Not because of the way the book is written but rather due to the complexity of the subject itself. As you will see, the concept & language behind Stock Options is a bit counter-intuitive and at times weird.

None-the-less, the Author has done an excellent job of explaining what Call options, Put options are. What levels of risks and potential for profit exists in buying, selling each kind of options. Additionally, the Author has done an wonderful job of suggesting number of interesting strategies of using options in order to generate income, hedge your portfolio. The one relating to tax was really interesting and a novel idea to me at least.

The only thing I would have liked more in this book is ... more examples. More simplified & easy to comprehend examples would have made it even better.

Overall, it an perfect starting point for any beginner. Read & Apply!

Inside the Kingdom : My Life in Saudi Arabia - book cover picture

This is a wonderful read and is fascinating. This biography chronicle's Carmen's life -- from her rich tale of meeting and falling in love with Yeslam. The flavour of the 70s and her eventual move to Saudi Arabia. This is where things get interesting. As an American, it is very interesting to get this glimpse from this very strong woman's perspective on a hostile society. The stories of the Binladin family itself and her life (as a Swiss westerner herself) are riveting and very enlightening and educational. Of particular interest is the underpinnings of the corruption of the Binladin family, including Osama, and the turning of Yeslam once they arrive into Saudi Arabia. Are the Binladins all in the same hostile group as that as Osama, who she briefly encounters?

A heroic tale and a wonderful read. Highly recommended!!

An Outstanding Translation

Book title: The Iliad of Homer
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Iliad of Homer - book cover picture

I am happy to see that this translation of The Iliad of Homer has remained in print. My copy is over 25 years old and I still regard it as my favorite. Mr. Lattimore has sought to preserve the meaning of the Greek words and the didactic hexameter rhythm, including the additional phrases (such as the warlike, breaker of horses etc.) that make the Iliad poetry to be recited, not read. I like the flow of the words and their cadence, and sometimes read aloud. Also of importance is the introduction to the Iliad by Mr. Lattimore where he provides an analysis of the poem, the Iliad in the context of the story of Troy, the unity of the poem and the figures that populate this heroic tale. This book is not only an outstanding translation but is also a resource for understanding the Iliad. Many scholars have regarded Lattimore's as the finest translation of the Iliad and I think that time has proved this to be an accurate prediction.
