Ackoff's Best : His Classic Writings on Management - book cover picture

A fascinating collection of writings, compiled by the author, which explores, first and foremost, systems thinking and its effects upon business and management. But beyond this, these writings delve into an astounding array of subjects including: the nature of planning; problem solving; managing; mission statements; creativity and constraints; consumer design; education; crime; advertising; design of management systems; the nature of science and methodology; objectivity; rationality; the future of operations research; and the role of business in a democratic society. This book is nothing less than a journey into the many-faceted mind of a great thinker. For those with a high level of curiosity about systems, organization, business, the human mind, and society, this collection is a gold mine, reflecting the richness of thought of this exceptional person. Highly recommended.

Simple Vegetarian Pleasures - book cover picture

While my family is not "vegetarian" we do consider ourselves "almost vegetarian". After receiving an e-mail from Amazon.com announcing the publication of this book in December, I ordered it. Since then, I have prepared well over half of the recipes - many more than once. We have NEVER been disappointed. The recipes are interesting, delicious, easy to prepare, healthy and appreciated by all. I have recommended this book to several friends and plan on giving it as a gift to others.

Stranger in My Arms - book cover picture

This book had great characters and the story was believable.I felt like I was right there with Lara unsure if Hunter was really was her husband and if a man could change that much. There was always that question in your mind was this man really Hunter,Earl of Hawksworth. It reminded me of the movie "Sommersby" with Jodie Foster and Richard Gere. I really enjoyed the book and now when I am looking for more reading enjoyment I will put Lisa Kleypas on the top of my list.

Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell, 1847 (Dear America) - book cover picture

I have started reading Dear America books recently, and when i saw this book, I knew I had to purchase it. I have become interested in the Oregon Trail- the history of it and the people who traveled across it- and I thought this book was an absolute perfect representation of it. Gregory has excellent characters, the locations and scenic descriptions are quite accurate, and most importantly, she made this story very realistic and hooks the reader from start to finish. A perfect historical read.

Surprisingly... good!

Dragon and the George - book cover picture

I'll admit it: when I got this book, I thought it was gonna be corny! I mean, come on now, dragons??? BUT I must say that as the plot unfolded, I suddenly realized that this is actually some good stuff! The humor isn't that great, but it keeps the story fresh. The plot is pretty cool, although there were some very predictable things along the way... I couldn't help but think at times that I was reading an interpretation of a plot to some RPG game. I'm not an expert on fantasy tales and such, so I don't know if this book is good if you like that kind of thing, but if you're just a casual reader with an interest, in, say, sci-fi, try it! You just might enjoy it.

The Campaigns of Lieut.-Gen. N. B. Forrest and of Forrest's Cavalry,: With Portraits, Maps, and Illustrations - book cover picture

I have read many different books written by people that lived in the era of the War Between the States, and this one has to be one of the best that I have read on one of the most audacious leaders that came out of the war on either side. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed reading this book. There were plenty of maps, and since the book was written under the watchful care of Nathan himself from his notes during the war, I believe it is one of the most complete works of this nature. I highly recommend the book to anyone. It is not just another boring read!

Guns for General Washington: A Story of the American Revolution (Great Episodes) - book cover picture

In this historical fiction book the story is told of how the colonists were able to keep the war going in the face of the British blockade of Boston harbor. The year was 1775, the Revolutionary War was in its early stages, and the colonists were out of ammunition enough to not overthrow the British out of their city. With Boston Harbor blockaded, the colonists could not gain any ammunition, so colonist Henry Knox hears of Fort Ticonderoga stocked with ammunition and devises a plan with his brother Will to bring the guns back to General Washington in the middle of winter. I recommend this book to anyone interested in a historical war book.

Prelude to Foundation (Foundation Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Can't say enough about Isaac Asimov, reading 'Prelude' was a great experience and seeing the peak of life on Trantor. What was most fascinating was Daneel Olivaw's appearance. Many of you remember him from the Robot series.Harry Seldon's adventures start here; he is a very human and fallible subject (unlike the phrophesizing old man in Foundation.) I think you will find that this is the best of the foundation series and it'll be hard to put down

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

I'm still not sure to this day if Abbott's geometry students grappled how fantastic a book it was that their teacher had written for them. First off, my geometry skills improved two-fold after reading this. Second of all, the book was a masterful satire of the times society. Women being regarded as witless beings, and soldiers portrayed as violent louts. Finally, it practically started the entire religion of modern illuminism. First, Abbott shows that even he who is regarded as the wisest in the land can be ignorant, and some "priests", or government officials, may not tell all of the facts. Lower planes may be ignorant, but with the help of a being in the higher dimension anyone can be guided. Further more, it suggests that there are limitless multitudes of higher dimensions.
