I like this book much better

I received the dictionary from amazon.com recently. I like this book because of the examples provided, which are clear and helpful. Compared with the other author, Robert Chapman, of a similar dictionary, I feel this author is much better, because Dr. Spears sounds very down-to-earth and he never appears showy by providing unnecessary or useless information just to make a book thicker so to speak.

I hope Dr. Spears can publish other new books that I will love to read.

Meticulous piece of detective work

The Arab Conquest of Spain 710-797 (A History of Spain) - book cover picture

It goes without saying that early medieval Spanish history is something of an acquired taste. However, it is surprising how much can be learnt about the interaction of western European societies and the Arab world by concentrating on this fascinating period of Spain's development. A reader with an interest in history but no specialist knowledge of early Spain can certainly enjoy this book, in which Collins shows himself to be a first-class historical detective!

Stephenson has struck gold!


Book title: DIAMOND AGE, THE (Bantam Spectra Book)
Rating: 5/5

DIAMOND AGE, THE (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age is one of the best books I've read in a long time. The jacket description didn't really intrigue me, but since the book was a gift I thought I'd give it a try. After the first few pages, I couldn't put it down! The story blends sci-fi compuspeak, morality, classic adventure motifs, and human interest into a mix that's like a witch's brew for rational thought processes. The fragmented storytelling keeps the suspense level high, and the sheer power of the subject matter is overwhelming. This is definitely a book to be read in small doses, but most likely readers will find that they just can't put it down! Advice from someone who's been there: Find a quiet, comfortable space, disconnect the phone, grab some snacks, and prepare to immerse yourself in one of the most engrossing, thought-provoking reads of a lifetime.

You Are Not Alone: Words of Experience and Hope for the Journey Through Depression - book cover picture

I bought this book on a whim years ago when I wanted to better understand my depression (knowledge is power, right?). It continues to sit on my bathroom floor, next to my bed, or on my coffee table within easy reach should I feel the urge to try to sink into the darkness within. It reminds me that I am truly not alone. It helps me to remember that there is hope. My copy is now well worn, but I treasure it always.

A great historical account for both the layman and scholar

A History of Witchcraft: Sorcerers, Heretics, and Pagans - book cover picture

While there are many books to choose from on this subject, Jeffery Russell manages to both educate and entertain. Taken from a stricty historical viewpoint, this book is both concise and poignant at times. The text reads more like a personal account from a not so casual observer while still managing to sprinkle in all the dry and sometimes lurid details. Having read many of the historical accounts as well as those with a position to defend or deny, I feel this book is the best I have read on the subject. While not a long book, quantatively there is more great information page for page than in any other single book I've read on witchcraft. This is not the be all end all book that "Drawing Down the Moon" tries to be for the believer. Instead it gives an excellent, engaging, account following a timeline which allows the reader to take into account the atmosphere of the time rather than remove the subject and give a disconnected sanitary synopsis of a fear that grew over time.

A highly recommended gastronomic delight!

The California Cook - book cover picture

What a great cookbook! I use it frequently, particularly for the roast chicken (my family's personal favorite), shrimp salsa, the marinades and salad dressings, the chocolate truffle brownies, and an UNBELIEVABLY sinful chocolate cake! The format is attractive, the recipes are easy to follow, and the results have been uniformly consistent. If you enjoy flavorful, creative cuisine, this is for you!

a book you need to finish


Book title: Hannibal
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio CD
Hannibal - book cover picture

The best yet I could not put it down I read it in the bath at work, I dreamed of him. In the silence of the lambs you fear and loathe him but in Hannibal you find yourself strangly rooting for him, a bad guy none the less but in a unusual way you dont want to see his downfall as an evil twisted criminal we all love to hate. This book portrays a different side of Lector, an insight into his mind and the places he goes in thought. A brilliant and engrossing book, I cant wait for number three.

A milestone in the discussion of the events surrounding November 1963


Book title: Case Closed : Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Case Closed : Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK - book cover picture

Mr. Posner's book after 10 years on the market continues to be one of the most significant books ever written on the Kennedy assassination. Meticulous research, analysis over emotion, Posner writes like a lawyer leaving a wake of conspiracy theories in his path. The greatest conspiracy surrounding the Kennedy assassination turns out to be the the conspiracy theories and the theorists themselves. It is not surprising that Case Closed has curtailed the publication flow of such books that sell sensationalism wrapped in conjecture.
