Jung, Freud, and Job

The Hero With a Thousand Faces - book cover picture

If you want to get an understanding of what would happen if you crossed mythology with Freud and Jung's subconscious then this is the book to get. Joseph Campbell takes an in-depth view of mythology and claims that it is really just composed of products of the subconscious. He backs his claim up with many stories from such well known religious stories such as the bet about Job to myths told by the Eskimos. You do not have to believe what he is telling you, but his points are very intriguing ones to think about. This is some pretty heavy stuff, definitely not meant for a light read, but if you have a basic idea of Freud then you will be able to take that knowledge and expand it into the realm of mythology quite easily. You may yet discover that there is still new and intriguing stuff to learn about.

That Was Then, This Is Now - book cover picture

i was told to pick out a book to read a book for my english class, and i chose this one. overall i will have to say it was a damn good book.the book deals with issues that can relate to all teenagers and kind of makes you think about the choices you make that affect everyday life. the story explores topics of friendships and drugs amongst highschool kids that can be applied to daily living. it makes you think of friends who have been through similar situations and even your own flaws. i think this is a good book for anyone to read. it is easy to read and hard to put down.i can now say i plan on reading other books by se hinton and shall contiue speaking good about the book

If You Liked This Book......

Book title: Suddenly You
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Suddenly You - book cover picture

You might want to start reading a series about another Irishman and a very independent lady. It's the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb. It will take you into the futuristic/murder mystery/romance genre, but don't be put off by the futuristic aspect of the books. Romance dominates. The chemistry between the hero and heroine -- very much like that of Jack and Amanda in the five-star Suddenly You-- is strong enough to have accounted for something like eight or nine books so far with the couple (Eve and Roarke) as the focus. One piece advice: Start at the beginning of the series with "Naked in Death," and read the books in order. I promise you, you won't be able to put them down.

A must read for everyone interested in Mars exploration

Book title: Red Mars (Mars Trilogy)

Red Mars (Mars Trilogy) - book cover picture

If you are interested in Mars, you must read these three books. As an engineer, I loved the technical explanations and how Red Mars gets into technological feats that are not out of our (near) reach. The characters are great and reading this book has opened my mind up to possibilities I would have never imagined, otherwise. If you like this book, you should also read Robert Zubrin's, "The Case for Mars" which tells how we can visit Mars with present day technology at a reasonable price (relatively speaking). I believe that pursuing a human colony on Mars is not only inevitable but definitely in Humanity's best interest. Hopefully it will happen in my life-time.

The Unlikely Spy - book cover picture

In my opinion, beautifully written, regardless of the license taken with history. The characters were realistic and human, easily identified with. I thought the plot was excellent, with several significant parts which had sufficient innuendo to lead me to believe something else was going to happen - which didn't. I did think the end for the two main German adversaries was somewhat anti climactic, but the end of the story was excellent and showed Churchill to be a real "stinker". I have already ordered his next book, naturally through AMAZON.COM.

A fantastic short introduction to General Relativity

Binding: Paperback
A Short Course in General Relativity - book cover picture

This is one gem of a book! It's paced extremely well--the authors managed to write a book which is neither cryptic from lack of detail nor cumbersome with too much detail. It strikes me as the perfect self study book for a physics or mathematics student.You won't find the ramblings of 'The Phone Book', nor will you find the obfuscated discussions in Wald. If you like David Griffiths' friendly and breezy writing style, you'll love this book.Don't let its size fool you. While the book is short in pages, it manages to cover most of what Schutz's book covers (another great book) and in many cases, does it better.I'd say it's suitable for a motivated junior undergraduate and is certainly suitable for a graduate student at any level.It has my full recommendation.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs - book cover picture

My wife is a big collector of children's books. She has 'The Stinky Cheese Man' and several other books by the J Scieszka/L Smith duo. So when I saw this book, I had to get it. Boy, was it a good choice. I love it! Forget 'Politically Correct Fairy Tales,' THIS is the Fairy Tale book you have to get! Our friends have a 3-year-old girl who used to love the story of the three little pigs. Ever since the first time I read 'The True Story' to her, she doesn't want to hear the 'official' version. She comes over and asks for the 'Sneeze book!'

The Code Book : The Evolution Of Secrecy From Mary, To Queen Of Scots To Quantum Crytography - book cover picture

This author did a fantastic job of taking what could be a very dry subject and making it quite interesting. As the subtitle indicates, he traces the history of cryptography and cryptanalysis from the late 1500's to the modern time.Singh gives examples throughout, and does a great job of explaining them as well. You don't have to be a math major to follow what he's talking about.The end of the book contains a "Cryptography Challenge" in which he offers $15,000 to the first person to correctly crack ten encrypted messages. Don't set your heart on the prize; it's already been won. Most of the messages can be decrypted by the average (but tenacious) reader; several of the latter require significant computer skills, however.

The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest - book cover picture

"The Report on THE KAPOK TREE"

The Kapok Tree is a story that will send a message to people of all ages. Only Lynne Cherry could write a book so beautiful and yet so inspiring. This book shows kids reasons why we shouldn't cut down our forests. The rainforest is a gift to us and cutting it down would be like throwing away one of the best gifts Mother Nature could ever give. Our earth doesn't have very many beautiful non-manmade things and we should cherish what we have left of our rainforest. Like the book says `If you cut down the rainforest what will your eyes feast on?' I would honestly recommend this book to people ages 1-100. I can only hope everyone else got the message like I did. Thank you Lynn Cherry for showing people how important the rainforest really is.
