Finding Mr. Write : A New Slant on Selecting the Perfect Mate - book cover picture

Not many books accoomplish the task of instructing their readers without their being aware of it. "Finding Mr. Write" by Beverley East has mastered the art of doing just that. The book is very informative and written with a lot of wit. Ms. East definitely knows her stuff and did a very good job of communicating handwriting analysis to the non-graphologist. A must read for anyone looking to find out more about a mate (potential or current) or anyone in their life now. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars!!!!

Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls - book cover picture

My wife and I are both only children. When my daughter reached the age of 15, her sudden conversion from happy little girl to sullen, resentful, and rebellious teenager took me completely by surprise. I was really struggling with my relationship with my daughter when I discovered this book. I purchased and read it all on the same day. While it did not solve all of my problems (I didn't expect it to do so), it was provided me great help and solace. For the first time, I was assured that my daughter was quite likely completely normal, and not psychotic as I had feared. It offered me information, strategies, and encouragement which were all invaluable to me in learning to deal with those difficult times. I've often wished I had the opportunity to thank Mary Pipher personally for writing this book

Most useful bread machine cookbook I've found.

Book title: Bread Machine Baker
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Bread Machine Baker - book cover picture

This book has lots of rapid-bake recipes that work beautifully. I don't remember ever having a failure in one of the recipes that wasn't my fault. Several have worked well even when I had to substitute for ingredients. The recipes all make 1 lb. loaves, but as there are only two of us, this is fine for me. I have sent it to everybody I know with a bread machine. I rarely use any of the other b.m. cookbooks since I got this.

I grew up reading and rereading this book, as did all the five children in my family. It's one of the very funniest books I know on the subject of families and their foibles. Shirley Jackson is so well known for her more macabre and adult writing that people are usually skeptical when I recommend this for its outstandingly intelligent humor. Once you read this you must also read Raising Demons, which is the sequel, and every bit as good, although much harder to find.

Life Sentence: Selected Poems - book cover picture

Nina Cassian's poetry is some of the most extraordinary to
emerge from Eastern Europe in many years, and American
readers can thank editor and translator William Jay for
putting together this collection of samples of Cassian's
best work, including some translations by the author
herself. A resident of the United States since 1985, having
been exiled from her own country, Nina Cassian is a poet
who is both academic and accessible. Her fluid, easily
grasped metaphors and poetic leaps have a charm which sets
her apart from her more obscure, less emotional

No Logo : Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies - book cover picture

This book changed the way I think about my environment. I notice every single billboards, and advertisements now. It even gave me the urge to deface some big chain conglomerates that put my favorite bookstores and record stores out of business. This book is quite insightful, especially with the way the chapters are laid out. It walks the reader through the process of advertisements, buying, as well as the day in the life of garment/shoe workers. It made me aware about the impact of every single purchases I make, and the ripple effect it creates. This ranks among the most important books I've ever read.

Word of Honor - book cover picture

I could not put this book down which came at the expense of reading for law school. I served 6 years in the Marine Corps and although I love novels with a military bent, I always take them with a grain of salt. The book is true to its characters. There is no fairy tale unrealistic ending. The authors does a fabulous job of unraveling the story a bit at a time. It also is good at addressing the political issues that invade military decisions at the upper echelons.

"Masterpiece Theatre"

Book title: Adam Bede (Penguin Classics)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Adam Bede (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

If you love "Masterpiece Theatre" and all the English period novels they have produced, then this is the book for you. Why they have never done this one is a puzzle. Eliot's description of English pastoral life in 1799 leaves no stone unturned. The characters are as sharply drawn as if you had met them a few moments ago. You can literally smell the fresh country air. Yes, the character of Dinah is overdone, reminding one of Dicken's saccharine women, but a small price to pay in so rewarding a book. You will be truly sorry when you finish to leave the world Eliot has drawn so well. The morals of these people are no longer ours, and that must be kept in mind always. But Eliot has stated that the idea for this book came from a story of her aunt's, who did indeed go to such a woman as Hetty in prison. And there is a wealth of criticism on "Adam Bede", including Virginia Woolf's "Second Common Reader". A rave!

The Distance Manager: A Hands On Guide to Managing Off-Site Employees and Virtual Teams - book cover picture

Kimball Fisher and Mareen Duncan Fisher document the special skills needed for the new but increasingly common task of managing far-flung work groups. The approaches that they examine are becoming increasingly essential for all managers. Although they explore relevant technologies carefully, their human relations advice is probably more important. The Fishers emphasize the interpersonal and leadership skills that a manager needs to head a virtual team. If you read this book cover to cover, it can seem repetitive, since many of the rules and tips offered in one area overlap with those in other areas. However, the book is designed to allow you to review specific management challenges and technologies, and to ignore areas that are irrelevant to your situation. We [...] recommend this clear, practical work to anyone who leads virtual teams and to the telecommuters and freelance workers who report to them.

Into the Wild - book cover picture

This book grabbed a hold of me, shook my emotions around and then placed me back down to earth wondering what just took place....that was my adventure. I simply loved this book..and read it in one night. Chris' story is both amazing and tragic...it makes you wonder what made this bright kid tick and why he would trade a traditionally comfortable life to chase the (more) fiction (than non-fiction) of Jack London and/or Therou. What is even more interesting is how close he came to making it Either way, its a great read. As an aside, I actually wrote the author, Krakauer b/c the book moved me so, and he responded w/ a hand-written postcard answering my questions.,,....seems like a class/regular guy...I was very impressed. Anyway, I hope you like it....
