Keeping her head above the water!

Bodies of Water - book cover picture

Though I must admit that I was one of the skeptical ones about how much I could enjoy this book, Rosie surprised me with her gift for writing that extends beyond her music. The book is short; only 133 pages long and contains nine shorts written about life, from a woman's point of view. My personal favorites are "The Arc of Lonliness," "Bodies of Water," "A Week At The Gore," and "Dinner." The other reviews go a little deeper into what the stories are about, so at the risk of not being repetitive, I won't go nto that. I'll only say that if you get a chance to track down a copy of this book, do not miss out. I am now seeking out her second collection!

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - book cover picture

I read this jewel of a book at a really dark time in my life. I had come to feel that no one cared about anyone else. Mitch and Morrie helped me see that I was NOT alone. Other people see the value of people/friends. My faith in humanity was restored. My experience may sound hackneyed, but I have continued to spread the "Gospel according to Morrie" and get thanked profusely by new devotees.

Fighting Back: A Memoir of Jewish Resistance in World War II - book cover picture

Fighting Back, by Harold Werner, is the well told story of a group of Jewish partisans, who instead of quietly submitting to the will of their Nazi oppressors, and those anti-semitic villagers, and there seemed to be many, who collaborated with the Nazis in their quest to destroy the Jews of Poland, decided to fight back. The author was one of those partisans. These people had all lost family members and friends to both the Nazis and to many of their neighbors who had once been their friends, and all they wanted was a chance to fight back, an opportunity for revenge. After reading many holocaust books about the camps, or about Jews in hiding, it was a pleasure to finally read one where the Jews actually defended themselves, and if they had to die, they died "Fighting Back." This is a must read.

Sandford does it again!


Book title: Mortal Prey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Mortal Prey - book cover picture

I was thrilled to see a new book in Sandford's Prey series! I couldn't wait to read it and I wasn't disappointed. This was such an enjoyable ride. I enjoyed the return of Rinker...and while I agree with other reviewers that Clara Rinker was the star of this book...with Davenport playing a "supporting role"...it was a nice change. I enjoyed peeking into the mind of the bad guy or is that bad girl? I liked the balance of Rinker's ambushes against Lucas's detective work. I didn't see the ending coming...and not too many books catch me off guard in the end.I also enjoyed the addition of new characters that it appears will be reappearing in the next books and look forward to seeing what developes as Davenport moves into his new job.All in all a great book!

Book brings ASP to life in straight-forward style

Bad Boys, Bad Men: Confronting Antisocial Personality Disorder - book cover picture

I have a shelf full of books that have bits and pieces of information on conduct disorder and the like on young men. Bad Boys, Bad Men takes all of that information, blends it together, adds to it, and spits it out in a very readable, comprehensive book that is like a dream come true to me. I mean it. And the advice to family members is so valid and honest. And the advice to the ASP person is so straight-forward. Reading this book has filled in many pieces for me in my search to understand the nature of a loved one. Bravo to Dr. Black and his writer friend. May this book be read by all the probation officers, juvenile judges, social workers and counselors alive. I truly believe that ASP is the basis for so much pain and suffering in our society.

New Recipes from Quilt Country : More Food & Folkways from the Amish & Mennonites - book cover picture

This book is awesome. Not only does it have wonderful recipes, especially desserts, which the Amish are famous for, but also has so much wonderful info. on the Amish people and their culture. I own several books about the Amish, and this is better than those other books even though this is a "cookbook." And the pictures are marvelous. Other than general info. on the Amish, my favorite part of this book is the fact that she divides the food into many different chapters and has a little story about each. An example is Baking Day, Lady Food, and the lunch bucket, as well as many other. This has info scattered throughout it about gardening by the signs of the moon, how to bake perfect cookies, and how to bake an angel food cake. I would highly recommend it.

Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith - book cover picture

Matt Stover has written a masterpiece to end the Star Wars saga. The book brilliant in all it's nuances. It gives us insight into all of the characters in ways that the movies cannot. Obi-Wan shines as a beacon of the light side and one, if not the greatest Jedi of them all. I can't wait to see it on the screen. The best of everthing that makes Star Wars great is in this Book! Read it and enjoy the Force!

David Copperfield (Norton Critical Edition) - book cover picture

I recently saw the new BBC production of this wonderful classic on Masterpiece Theatre. Since then, I have been reminiscing on how I so completely enjoyed reading the novel some years' back. I dearly love anything by Charles Dickens - he writes with amazing depth of character, substance and humour. "David Copperfield" is without a doubt my favorite by Dickens. The story is, essentially, some 40 years in the life of the indelible Mr. Copperfield - speckled through and through with a rainbow cast of characters, and they color his life. Oh, how I loved them! - Mr. Micawber and his "pecuniary difficulties," or Miss Betsy Trotwood and "the donkeys!" And I don't think I ever enjoyed hating a character so much as the despicable Uriah Heep. The book is long - as I love books to be - and, for readers with superiority of taste and imagination, it is pure entertainment from cover to cover!

Essential reading for OO management

Binding: Paperback
Surviving Object-Oriented Projects (Agile Software Development Series) - book cover picture

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in running an OO project, or for anyone who simply wants a balanced view of OO development. Unlike most other OO authors I've encountered, Alistair Cockburn is not interested in selling OO as the answer to all our prayers, but uses a wealth of case studies to show us the limits, pitfalls and negative side of OO development, as well as the benefits. Perhaps because of this, he doesn't ignore the management aspects of development, most of which are common to OO and non-OO projects. The book is also well presented and well written, and even has a sprinkling of humour. I particularly like his term "PolyBloodyHardReuse", the meaning of which will be obvious to anyone who's ever seen attempts to introduce software reuse into an organisation.
