Antiques at Home : Cherchez's Book of Collecting and Decorating with Antiques - book cover picture

"It is the loveliness of little things that imparts life to a room." This quote sums up the feeling of this wonderful book. It is filled with hints and tips on finding and caring for antiques and collectible. The joy of combing through flea markets looking for the next perfect addition to your collection is reflected in both text and pictures. The chapters cover ceramics, wood, silver, textiles, glass and paper. What ever makes your heart sing is covered in this book. A nice plus is an index listing of flea market and shop locations in both the United States and Europe. This is a book I go back to and read and look through time and time again, a keeper for your personal library.

This was my first Clive James book. I loved it. I've not yet been to Bombay, or any part of India, but having read the book, I feel like it's a place that I must (but not necessarily want to) visit. It's a sad story about the life a young boy growing up in poverty in Bombay. It is tragic, but it is told with such objectiveness that you cannot cast judgment upon any of the characters involved. This is a brilliant display of James' talent of telling things how they are, without imposing a moralistice slant. You'll even laugh a lot.This book is definitely worth reading.

Kerberos: A Network Authentication System - book cover picture

The layout of this book is extremely well considered. Depending on the reader, one can focus on the user, admin, or programmer section. The theory is also presented in a separate section with an appropriate level of background security information (you might want to read this section first if you don't have any security background).The writing is also very well done. Dr. Tung never repeats himself (unlike other technology authors) and his examples are short and to the point. The reader is even, occasionally, treated to a delightful sense of humor. I certinaly hope that Dr. Tung will produce more books.I recommend this book to anyone, period. Of course, if you are using or developing Kerberos apps, then I really, really recommend it. Any system admin worth his or her salt should read this book as well, even if they are not currently considering Kerberos.My final thought: this book would make a great stocking stuffer!!!Dr. Matthew Presley, Chief Scientist, QB, Inc.

From Here to Eternity - book cover picture

As a Woman Army Veteran, I remain true to staying in touch with the lessons of military life, through reading books like this one. James Jones made me stop to think, mull over, and think some more, as the dialogues between each character developed. I truly felt at times that I was there, wanting to shake up a few of the characters. I felt their pain, and some of their positive feelings. And, I had to remind myself that I am living vicariously through reading this book, lessons that empower me in business, in dating, in communicating with the opposite sex, and in just being more empowered.This book speaks to everyone, about change, expectations and the things that we choose to decide what really matters.

An excellent sequel to his earlier book, 'The Heat Is On.' Check out my Amazon Reviews from October 15th 2002. As I noted earlier, reading Jonathan Weiner's book, 'The Next One Hundred Years: Shaping the Fate of Our Living Earth' before reading Gelbspan is valuable because it explains the history and science of global warming before introducing current policy issues; including the heavy obstructionism by the fossil fuels industry(oil & coal) and their public relations apparatus. As Gelbspan notes, outside of the U.S. the existence of global warming is no longer debated. The rest of the world has moved on to positive and meaningful steps to deal with the problem. Quite very probably the most serious problem facing humanity in the 21st Century.

Sue & Sue have revised their book with wonderful results. This time they include a section "Clinical Implications" in each chapter, this adds to the information and helps with the teaching of this necessary subject. As usual Sue & Sue are thorough and thoughtful in their presentation. They also include the notion of Organizational Culture as a needed subject of study. I highly recommend this book for any clinican and professor who works in the field of psychology. Dr. Gabrielle M. Guedet, Ph.D., MFT

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the bard and even to those who have some reservations about reading Shakespearian plays. Greenblatt has done an excellent job in writing a book that is not only a delight to read, but informative as well. It's not a text crammed with tedious facts; instead it's a backstage pass on what's going on behind the scenes. Greenblatt stimulates your mind as he cleverly unfolds the fascinating details of the life of William Shakespeare.

For anyone with a penchant for the rather obscure, the outrageously funny, and the dazzling world of Italo Calvino, this book ranks as one of the author's finest works.The tales of a suit of armor out to vindicate himself, and a count with literally "split personalities" is colored with heavy doses of wit, and a dab of philosophical discourse. Prose flows effortlessly accross your tongue as you read. And you don't seem to notice the passage of time. The characters, especially the protagonists, prove to be very endearing. For anyone who hasn't read Calvino, this is as good as any book to start with. It gets the bandwagon rolling.

Honest to Jesus: Jesus for a New Millennium - book cover picture

I bought this book expecting to object to every page as I read it. Instead, I found myself saying "Amen" to almost everything Funk brings to the party. The church, if not Christianity itself, is in dire straits at the moment. Funk nails the problems with creedalism and antique theologies. For myself, I'd rather read Marcus J. Borg, because I find him more hopeful for the church, but Funk's opus is one that every pastor and every Christian and every seeker must read to break out of the idolatry of a Jesus who is dead. You might not like Funk's portrait of Jesus or his thoughts about Him, but a lot of people were turned off by John the Baptist, too. So, Wake Up! Take on the challenges put forth by Funk

This great book has a little of everything in it. It has sadness, intelligence, comedy, and much more. This book was incredibly descriptive. It also had unusual words that people rarely use and it tells you the difference. This book helps you learn and at the same time entertains you.
First the amazingly unfortunate orphans (the Baudelairs) are moved from their previous and ruined home and moved from house to house until now. Now they are in a boarding school and the children are still afraid that their first guardian is going to hunt them down as usual to steal their huge fortune. Thankfully the Baudelairs as usual manage to ruin Olaf's plot and keep their fortune. In this book however Olaf didn't run by himself and some accomplices. This time he took the Quagmire triplets who had a fortune of their own and they were not only friends of the orphans, they were orphans as well.
