When I Say No, I Feel Guilty - book cover picture

I am a psychologist working in a college counseling center, and this is the number one book on assertiveness that I recommend to my clients. Dr. Smith begins by describing "Your 10 Assertive Rights," a reminder that we all have a right do such human things as say "I don't know" and change our minds. He then introduces various assertiveness strategies one by one, starting with the very basic skill of persistence (AKA the "broken record" technique). For each strategy, Dr. Smith presents a short dialogue vignette to help you better understand how to apply that technique to real life. Once he has thoroughly taught all of the individual techniques, Dr. Smith puts them all together and addresses assertiveness in different types of situations--ie, with your family members versus with your boss. This is a great book for anyone who is tired of not being able to say "no" and ready to learn how to change their behavior.

JUST ABOVE MY HEAD - book cover picture

From the moment I read the first page, I have loved this novel. I have read it several times and each time the characters come to life and I find myself caring about them. Hall has to deal with so many issues--least of all, is Ruth the woman he truly loves or should he be with the evangelist? Arthur-the gay gospel singer who sometimes would just as well have a drink or a man than sing the gospel, but who sang it so well when he chose to. Then there are the complex lives of their friends and parents that seem so real and yet so tragic. Baldwin created a masterpiece!

Ethan Frome: Authoritative Text Backgrounds and Contexts Criticism (Norton Critical Editions) - book cover picture

This was an excellent work of literature. The emotion of Mattie and Ethan was very evident and could be felt by the reader. Wharton's use of suspense made one on edge through out the story. The ironic ending of the story made one feel the pain of the family's tragedy.The simplicity of the novel only added to the readality and created the atmosphere that made Ethan and the others seem like a breathing soul, as opposed to a fictional character.

The Golden Book of Fairy Tales (Golden Classics) - book cover picture

My little sister and I were given this book by our mom, who was given it by her mom. The stories are EXCELLENT! I have not read fairy tales as well written as these. Some are stories I have not read the likes of anywhere else. All the stories seem original while still retaining the genre and style of classic fairy tales. The illustrations are exceptional. This is a great book to give to, and to cherish with, any child.

On Mexican Time: A Home in San Miguel - book cover picture

IBM sent me on onternational assignment to Guadalajara, Mexico for a year. I thought I spoke Spanish until I arrived. I listened to this book on tape on the drive down and remember thinking that "these Mexicans seem crazy". One year later, driving back to the states, I listened to Tony's book again and was crying and laughing the whole time.The people who gave this book bad reviews clearly have lived in the US a little too long. Unfortunately, the only way you can understand this book is to have lived down there for a period of time.I guess the real point of this book is to say, "there's a different world out there and the United States is NOT at the center of it".

She Flew the Coop : A Novel Concerning Life, Death, Sex and Recipes in Limoges, Louisiana - book cover picture

If you read one book this year, read She Flew the Coop. It's wickedy funny, but it's also poignant, written with grace and depth. Fast paced and funny, SFTC is a crazy quilt of a novel, stitched with love. The book is full of recipes, and you can really cook them! Ms. West is a modern day Jane Austen, plunked own in the American South. You have to get down on your knees to find her in the bookstores, but it's worth the effort

Ender's Game (Ender Quartet) - book cover picture

When it comes to Sci-Fi novels, there are good writes, there are bad writers, and there is Orson Scott Card. What distinguishes him from the rest is that he makes his characters strong and diligent. They are believable in the context that they are placed. He doesn't randomly pick traits from a hat, he gives birth to a new human being thats is unique in every way. And in Ender's Game, he has birthed a creature that is both all powerful, and weak. Brilliantly written, engrossing and finely detailed, Ender's Game is a MUST for anyone who believes that childhood is something that should be held sacred. And if you don't, well, read it anyway! :) It's a fun book, so don't judge it by its seriousness.

Blott on the Landscape - book cover picture

This book is one of the funniest books I have ever read. It introduces a series of characters, from self-serving politicians to their innocent victims (his wife, in one case) and people who work for them, especially Blott.
An MP who married money and land wants an excuse to sell it for redevelopment. His constituents do not want it redeveloped, and neither does his wife, so he must appear to be against development while conniving to ensure that the government will proceed. His wife, and a longtime servant (who went there as a World War 2 POW) contrive ever more outrageous defences, ending in a military assault with heavy
weapons.
I have never found an American author as funny as this, and hope someone will recommend one to me.

Comstock is a Gold Mine of Fun Reading!


Book title: Comstock Lode
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Comstock Lode - book cover picture

I just finished reading Comstock last week, when I happened to be up in the California gold country myself. I'm a garden writer, author of 5 published books, and I was in Placer County, speaking to the Auburn Garden Club. The town of Auburn, which sits in the middle of the gold rush's richest territory, is a neat place, one to visit if you get the chance. I noticed too that there is still a very busy mining supply store right on one of Auburn's main streets. There's still gold and silver being found up there!
But I digress: All of us who read Louis L'Amour's Westerns have probably noticed that while all of them are fun to read, some are certainly better than others. I thought that Comstock was darn good, and certainly one of the best of his books set in California. If you enjoy a fast-paced, action packed Western, I expect you'll like Comstock. I recommend it!

El Alquimista: Una Fabula Para Seguir Tus Suenos - book cover picture

Maravilloso!!! Este libro me ha cambiado la perspectiva en la vida.Desde que lo le? me he propuesto, dentro de lo que cabe, a hacer lo posible por llevar a cabo mi "historia personal". Es algo as? como "el peque?o pr?ncipe", una historia sencilla con un vocabulario simple, pero con mucho coraz?n, que a su vez encierra la clave para una vida plena y feliz. Perfecto para quien necesite un cambio refrescante en su vida y todav?a no ha hallado el valor para cambiarla.
