The Plains of Passage (Earth's Children) - book cover picture

Thankfully after finishing the Mammoth Hunters, I didn't have to wait a year before finding the fourth installment. I was a seventh grader when I read, and quickly finished The Plains Of Passage. The reason: I couldn't put it down!!Like always, Jean M. Auel has put out a great amount of effort to write an interesting and entirely compelling novel. Ayla and Jondalar are now on their way to Jondalar's home. It's a long journey, filled with many dangers, and people who will either befriend them or hate and fear them because of Ayla's horses Whinney and Racer (though Jondalar rides him mostly)and her wolf simply named, Wolf.My least favorite character was the leader of the S'Armuni tribe (prehistoric Amazon women). I was so glad of how that turned out. I was also glad that the Clan received a part in the story as well. Ayla was a wonderful heroine.

The Lion's Game - book cover picture

Classic DeMille. Loved it! John Corey from Plum Island strikes again. The plot was plausible and exciting, and moved quickly. I did not like the "romantic involvement" - I felt it was unrealistic. He would have kept my attention without it. The twists were also plausible, some expected, some not. I like the cleverness, the wise crack remarks by the hero, not to mention DeMille's reference to the movie "The General's Daughter" and the numerous references to the X-Files. When I read a novel, I hope to learn something and in this case, learned some tid-bits about Mid-Eastern culture, but the racial slurs were numerous. The main character is amusing and caused some "laugh-out-loud" moments.

Holes is a great book. It was very entertaining to read. It was full of excitement and adventure. Every page left me wandering onto the next, and the next. I read most of the book in one sitting. This book grabbed my attention and kept me going throughout it. I couldn't ask for a better book. It was a very imaginative and mysterious and I would recommend it to anyone with a big imagination and loves adventure.

Amazon Diary: The Jungle Adventures of Alex Winter - book cover picture

Author Hudson Talbott presented a fascinating talk for families at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County detailing his and co-author Mark Greenberg's journey into the Amazon. His description of their trip, plus the engrossing video of the experience helped explain why Alex Winter's fictional experiences rang so true. Mr. Talbott's respect for the Yanomamis and their world is very evident, both in his presentation and in the book Amazon Diary. All in all, a delightful presentation and a terrific book!- Nancy Fox, Education Division, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

A classic, made even better

Categorical Data Analysis (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics) - book cover picture

This is a very demanding, thorough, and clear description of just about everything anyone could want to know on the subject. The second edition is considerably more rigorous than the first. Agresti stresses that logistic models are one kind of generalized linear model. This offers solid connections to many other models, but places corresponding demands on the reader. In particular, Chapter 4 is difficult going, but might be skipped or skimmed on first reading. Given the mathematical level and rigor, this is a remarkably clear book. Anyone who analyzes categorical data on a regular basis should read it and have it on his or her shelf.

A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles - book cover picture

This book is extremely well organized and the logic of thought is excellent. The issue and the core of the problem are so well defined and the single line of argument is being bulit step by step. People often argue on political issues without knowing what're the counterpart's assumptions, and this book offers a clear explaination of the source of the conflict. The same kind of conflict of visions actually not only exists in the US, as I was thinking about the difference btw. confucianism and Taoism in ancient China and the assumptions used by both sides (constrained and unconstrained visions) is strikingly similar to today's left and right's parties. This book leads me to think of things I've never thought about, and the clarity of thought is the hallmark of Dr. Sowell, whether you agree with him or not.

Great vegetarian cookbook

Moosewood Restaurant New Classics - book cover picture

I have made several dozen of the recipes contained in this book, and almost all have been something I would definitely make again! One feature I really enjoy is an estimated time required to both prepare and cook each dish, so you can easily thumb through, looking for something which fits your time schedule. One thing I did not appreciate was the excessive use of refined sugar in every single one of the dessert recipes. I assumed that Moosewood would be more concerned with making desserts and cookies with maple syrup, honey, etc., but unfortunately, I was wrong.
Overall, I think the book is great and am planning to buy it as a gift for several family members.

The Glory and the Dream: A Narrative History of America, 1932-1972 - book cover picture

Never before have I read a book as fascinating as this. Having read several of William Manchester's other works I knew what to expect, but I never imagined it would be like this. Manchester begins with the Bonus Marchers and ends with the shameful close of the war in Indochina and the beginning of the end of Nixon's Administration. Using the classic narrative prose characteristic of of all his work, Manchester takes the reader for a ride through time that runs the gamut of emotions: anger, shame, glee and a million others in between. I know it sounds corny, but I was moved to tears at times as I read this book. That is the kind of book this is and that is the kind of shared history we, as citizens of the United States, have. So wonderful. So terrible. It really puts everything about our country -- its people, its politics and its society -- in perspective. If you are at all interested in history, YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK.

I'm not ashamed to say I'm 60+ and have a Ph.D. I picked up the first book just to see what the fuss was about. It brought back memories of wanting my kids to go to bed so I could read to them. Now I can read such books any time I want. I actually have put aside three "adult" books I've been reading to finish the Potter series. And I've gotten my wife and adult daughter started. I haven't had as much fun reading in a while. Get the book and enjoy yourself.
