How did a Mere Human Write this Masterpiece?

Mr. Mani (Harvest in Translation) - book cover picture

I concur with other readers that "Mr. Mani" stands in a class of its own. The book, which spans centuries, manages to do so while remaining riveting and vivid. That I remember it years after re-reading it, that I am now trying to write my own novel allows me to now see how truly masterful this book is. If you don't write you may not realize how much had to go into the leaping stories, the profundity of character and the great subject this author took on and completed. Maybe a few on this earth are as blessed with the gift of creation, but they are very few indeed.

The Cider House Rules - book cover picture

I first started reading John Irving about five years ago, and found myself hooked by his lyrical insight into the mindset and rhythms of the east coast. This is one of the best Irving novels that I have read because it explores the complexities of the idea of "rules", and conveys the idea that the world is not as black and white as it may seem. I am just disappointed that the film adaptation had taken such a different turn from the novel.

Simply the Best

International Political Economy: Perspectives on Global Power and Wealth - book cover picture

One will not find a better reader in the field of International Political Economy than Frieden and Lake's. Packed with classic articles from a variety of well regarded political scientists and fantastically edited with useful divisions made by topic and ideology, this reader is essential for any course at the university level in IPE. I would even recommend that international economics classes take a look at adding this text, as the political economy of free trade, the WTO, Transnational Corporations, etc. is discussed at length.

Another great Discworld book!

The Light Fantastic (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

This is the second book in Terry Pratchett's series on the Discworld--a flat world, supported on the back of four massive elephants riding on the back of a planet-sized turtle; anything hilarious can happen here, and eventually does. Rincewind, failed wizard and reluctant bearer of one of the eight great spells of the Octavo, finds himself the center of attention at the end of the world. With a party of misfits converging on him, he must keep himself and Twoflower (the Disc's first tourist) alive--and save the world, if he finds the time.It was on great books like this that Mr. Pratchett built his reputation! Terry's strength is the ability to run several stories simultaneously without losing the reader. Couple that with a hilarious storyline, and you've got a winner. This is a great book, one that I recommend to everyone!

Princess Sultana's Daughters

Book title: Daughters of Arabia
Rating: 5/5

Daughters of Arabia - book cover picture

As is rarely seen, this sequel is just as captivating as the first book by Jean Sasson titled PRINCESS, LIFE BEHIND THE VEIL! This book is so well written that I felt I knew the characters personally and really got involved in their lives. PRINCESS SULTANA'S DAUGHTERS, is like a golden needle in a hay stack, one of few books that depicts so accurately the reality of everyday life for women of Saudia Arabia. I respect the authors research in living in Saudia Arabia for over 10 years before writing these books! Perhaps if everyone read them something would be done about women's rights in the world. It is about time we do!

Crimes Against Nature: How George W. Bush And His Corporate Pals Are Plundering The Country And Hijacking Our Democracy - book cover picture

RFK Jr. has presented to his readers a picture of one of the most important challenges facing the American public and the greater world - environmental responsibility in the corporate climate. Here we can see quite clearly that the Bush administration gives the concept little merit. Particularly disappointing is the administrations' constant claim that "the science is still inconclusive" as to whether global warming exists, when every credible scientific institution in the world has said otherwise. The Bush administration will make its mark as the worst environmental presidency in history.

A great book to learn the ins and outs of servlets

Book title: Java Servlets (Enterprise Computing)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Java Servlets (Enterprise Computing) - book cover picture

This book not only gives you a great introduction to programming servlets (including hosting and configuration, chaining, etc.) but also delves into related topics such as HTTP tunneling and using introspection to simplify servlet programming. I especially liked the amount of JDBC/RMI information included in the book since many servlets written will want to interface to other Java servers or databases. Having written an article on servlets for BYTE, I was pleased to find this much information packed in the book. My only disappointment is that the author didn't include more on managing state with servlets (e.g. through cookies) and about the future of servlets (covering developments such as Servlet Beans, and the impact, if any, of EJB on the servlet standard). All in all, a great servlet book!

Gurdjieff: An Approach to His Ideas (Arkana S.) - book cover picture

Michel Waldberg writes clearly and gives a good picture of Gurdjieff's ideas. The main contents of his book are direct quotations from Beelzebub's Tales and In Search of the Miraculous, which gives an authentic impression.But the books is not only quotations it is also full of acute observations and thoughts on the teaching. Consider the following little quotation:"It is as children that we must read Meetings with Remarkable Men' - as children capable of wonder, of following where the storyteller leads, and also of identifying with the marvellous living figures whom we see. Anybody who came to this book in search of new revelations, or new methods of achieving the consciousness without which it remains useless to utter the word freedom, would be quickly disenchanted."

The book is great and having be dedicated to me is even better. As a young reader I this was one story I loved to read and I would read over and over again.
