Into the Wild - book cover picture

I gave this book a five for many reasons. One of which being the personal impact that it had upon me. Krakauers writng style made this book easy for an individual such as myself to relate to Chris McCandless. By this I mean that I, an 18 year old Senior in High School, am beginning to question the future, and my place in the future. Chris McCandless felt much the same way. However, he had more guts than I ever would to actually go, and search for his place in the future. This book made me realize that when I die, I would like to truthfully be able to say the same thing Chris McCandless did "I have had a happy life..." (199).

Toss Out the Frozen System

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values - book cover picture

Anything you know, either unfolded before your senses, or you heard about it from someone else, and it unfolded before theirs. And it keeps going, and you can't freeze it. The mind, beholding Quality, or Tao, is all there is. After 4 reads and 15 years, I finally got it. It's super-simple, yet the hardest thing to accept. But once you do, watch life's Gordians knots fall apart.
Thank you Mr. Pirsig, for your intellectual pit-bulledness in the face of Plato's inversion.
The book's highly rich parallel structure is poetically satisfying.
Why did the author collapse? He paralyzed under two fundamental reversals at once: philosophical conversion to Quality from Truth, and, moral conversion from power to "mu"?
My opinion is that if he had been in the right hands at the time, he would have pulled out ok, ie, without the shocks.
P.S.: It's Monism.

Very useful but not for beginners

Binding: Paperback
Building Linux and Openbsd Firewalls - book cover picture

I found this book very helpful and was able to set up a working OpenBSD firewall using it. I did have to consult the OpenBSD FAQs and other material on the Web, however. The only quibble I have with this book is its presumed target audience. The intro says "Knowledge of Unix is not assumed," but I would recommend that you not even consider starting a firewall building project unless you have good knowledge of UNIX, networking, and basic system administration. If you're picking up this book with that background, though, you will find it a very detailed and helpful guide to setting up your firewall.By the way, the book is geared towards OpenBSD 2.5 but the website has a lot of good updated information on the latest release, 2.7. Plus it has a bunch more examples beyond what is in the book.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

After waiting, one surely thought they might be disappointed but not at all! This book is long but riveting. And it definitely is darker than the others although no overly so. There are some lovely tie-ins with previous books, some new characters which we hope to see again and expansion of plot lines and characters. It was a whomping good read and alas now we have another year to wait for the next installment! A word to the wise - don't finsih the last few chapters on a dark, stormy night in a house all alone...

Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill Paper Dolls in Full Color - book cover picture

This is a great book. It includes an Annie Oakley doll, her husband Frank, Buffalo Bill, and Sitting Bull. It also includes a brief biographical account of Annie Oakley. The costumes are beautiful, and there are more than 10 for Annie. Each dress in the book actually existed and it tells what occasion the doll wore it for. This book is worth every penny, and is a must for fans of the Old West and paper doll buffs of any age.

It changed my mind

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

As a longtime conservative, from a multigenerational conservative family, I chuckled when a friend gave me this book as a gag gift. I read the first chapter, and though I didn't agree with the contents, it was quite humorous and entertaining, so I continued with the rest.By the end of the book, I felt disillusioned, and began questioning the moral superiority I had always assumed conservatism had. Through a soul-searching process that extended over several months, I began realizing that most of my true values are closer to liberalism, and it has only been the constant, deadening rhetoric of the right that had kept me from this realization.In short, while I approached this book with a snort, it ended up transforming my political views. I was expecting just a nasty polemic, and was pleasantly surprised to find positions backed up with evidence, embarassing revelations of conservative moral hypocrisy, and a really funny read.

Number the Stars - book cover picture

I loved this book. Lois Lowry does a wonderful job of creating characters you become attached to. The plot is so captivating; I could never put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to see what might have been a real-life experience for someone during the Holocaust. If you enjoyed 'Anne Frank,' you will enjoy this book; while they share a common subject they are each wonderfully different in their descriptions of how the Holocaust changed these girls' lives.
