Learning to Play God - book cover picture

Dr. Marion holds nothing back in his memoirs of medical school and residency. He is able to show us the fear and inadequacy he felt as a young student doctor without trying to explain away mistakes that he made (refering to the "NICU from Hell"). Every medical student and resident has experienced feelings of sheer terror and complete exhaustion during their training, but Dr. Marion is one of the few I've seen who was willing to tell the public about it. A must read for anyone in or around (family/friends) the profession of medicine.

Self Help - book cover picture

This book is totally a put on your favorite pajamas, sit in your favorite chair with ice cream and read cover to cover then rush to have coffee with an old friend kind of book. I love love it. I read it every year. I discovered it around the same time I started writing and this book brings me back to that time when I felt I had so much to say but oh! how to say it. I read "Ahmal and the Night Visitors: A Guide to the Tenor of Love" in a collection of young writers and was so touched by the lush feeling of the world she was in and the thoughts she was having. I think of that story often. I certainly recommend this book to women- it saves the cost of long-distance gosspiy, weepy, funny phone calls to old friends, and has the same warm effect.

The Attractor Factor : 5 Easy Steps for Creating Wealth (or Anything Else) from the Inside Out - book cover picture

Although I thought that Mr. Vitale engaged in a little too much self-promotion in this book, this small complaint was overwhelmed by the useful advice that can be found here. I enjoyed this book immensely and found the 5-Step process of attracting what I want into my life to be easy and straightforward to implement. After just a couple of weeks, I can already notice a difference in both my perceptions and the external world around me. There are also several other references in the book to other resources that are extremely useful. If you've read extensively in the Self-Help arena and are still looking for the key to start the engine, this is a good place find it.

Holes (Readers Circle) - book cover picture

If you are adventurous, you will enjoy reading Holes. Sachar combines the experiences of friendship and suspense into an incredible book while uncovering a "big" secret in relation to the history of the novel.The Yelnats have a history of bad luck, and Stanley's conviction for a crime he didn't commit sends him to a juvenile detention center at Camp Green Lake. He reaches the camp and discovers it has no lake at all and has been dry for over 100 years. The boys in the camp have to dig holes for punishment, and the warden claims this builds character. Stanley suspects something more and takes the reader on a incredible journey.I would recommend this book to anyone, but it would particularly appeal to our reluctant, young readers who can relate to the thoughts and experiences of Stanley's journey which go from having "bad luck" to becoming our hero.

Don't judge a book by its cinematic trailer!

Book title: The Postman (Bantam Classics)
Rating: 5/5

The Postman (Bantam Classics) - book cover picture

A reader of the book will see that The Postman (which is not related to the "Il Postino" movie of a few years back) illustrates the power of memes over brawn. From the indications of the advance trailer, Kevin Costner is butchering this book by turning the physically and intellectually weak protagonist of The Postman into a Mad Max hero of the Reformed USA. "Waterworld goes Postal," indeed, from the catcalls and jeering evident in the theatres where the trailer runs, the movie is set to be as well-received as Waterworld. In the book, the Postman is merely a catalyst - to turn him into a heroic leader utterly destroys the meaning of the story. Can anyone tell me if there's some wonderful story that got perverted into Waterworld?

The best book I ever read

Book title: The Autobiography of Malcolm X : As Told to Alex Haley
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Autobiography of Malcolm X : As Told to Alex Haley - book cover picture

This is by far the best english book I ever read and also the first english book I read until the last page.
I am not a native english speaker and I was not familiar with black people strugle in america. But I got a chance to know about Malcolm X from Spike lee's well made film about the man. After seing the movie, I could help but want to read more about Malcolm X and read his autobiography. And I simply couldn't put it down.
Alex Haley wrote an interesting introduction about the man and how he involved in making of this book. He reveals to us how important the role of malcolm at that time for many of balck american.
It is no wonder this book has influenced many black american or other people from various races, because many what malcolm said and belief are universal and 'ring with truth', even though we may not agree with everything what he said. The biggest lesson from him maybe is that we take our own destiny and we can change the world by start changing ourselves.

a well written funny look at journalism and Africa

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

Evelyn Waugh's is at his best here. He takes on the press barons, foreign correspondents, the world of diplomacy and 1930's Africa policy. It is a world where virtually no one in power tells the truth. And nobody is what he seems. Through a mix-up the wrong Boot is sent to cover the war in Africa. Eventually "Boot of the Beast" gets the big headline.
After you read this, the phrase "up to a point" will have new meaning.

Conversations with God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 1) - book cover picture

Our planet is facing a great challenge now. I believe that the Walsch books have been given to us to help change how we live. We Are All One is not just a beautiful concept...we are invited to live this greatest of Truths in every moment of our lives. Unless we do this, I believe that we cannot survive as a species. Each of us has the opportunity to demonstrate with our lives the Oneness that we are, and to re-mind everyone else that, although we can be different, we can never be divided.
