Milk in My Coffee - book cover picture

I began EJD's novel with lots of preconceived notions about where he would go with "Milk In My Coffee." I was wrong! I enjoyed this book so much that I quickly bought "Sister, Sister" and "Friends And Lovers." Then I finished those as well. What a ride, this brotha can write. A prior reviewer was dismayed that the "one drop' theory with Kimberly was unbelieveable. Believe it honey, it happened in my family. And, my cousin who passed for white, ended up with a brown skinned baby, much to the surprise of his wife and inlaws. He's now divorced. Can't tell him from any other caucasion in town! Eric Jerome Dickey, keep up the good work and I look forward to many years of reading your work.

Secrets of a Summer Night (Avon Historical Romance) - book cover picture

Lisa Kleypas never lets me down and SECRETS OF A SUMMER NIGHT only lifted me higher! Adding the "class struggle" between Simon and Annabelle gave the book a realistic tone without taking away from any of the charm and romance of the story. I can't wait to read about the other Wallflowers! I can't imagine the research that must go into a book like this, but Lisa always gets the details right and makes it look easy. SECRETS OF A SUMMER NIGHT probably won't be a secret for long once it's discovered by more avid romance readers like me!

Playing for Keeps: Michael Jordan and the World He Made - book cover picture

David Halberstam, a great writer, has brought to life the story of the greatest athlete of all time, Michael Jordan. From Michael's youth, when he used to compete against his brother Larry, to being cut from his high school team, through the regimentation of Dean Smith and the University of North Carolina, Mr. Halberstam goes deep into the life of Michael Jordan and helps explain how this amazing individual brought professional basketball to what it is today. A fascinating account of all aspects of sport, it is timely reading now that the lockout has ended and the NBA tries to figure out which of its wunderkinds will be the next Air Jordan. I recommend any parent with a child, boy or girl, should read this book and underline the highlites to impress upon their children of the necessity of hard work, perserverance and just being a nice guy. Thank you Michael. We will miss you.

In a Sunburned Country - book cover picture

I'd rate this somewhere between a 4 and 5. I read this book before a recent trip to Australia and found Mr. Bryson's comments about both the country and the people to be right on the mark. Additionally he has a great sense of humor. I saw Australians reading the book, perhaps the ultimate endorsement. Althought I only went to major cities, Mr. Bryson made me want to go deep into the continent. A great read.

Waiting in Vain - book cover picture

Colin, Colin, Colin...Sweetheart. Do you mind if I call you that? You have baked this one to perfection. The richness and thickness and sexiness of your story is reminiscent of authentic southern cooking...the kind that sticks to you and makes you sleep with a smile coyly dancing on your lips. Ian and Sylvia and......FIRE are wonderfully almond spiced and beautifully interwoven. I suddenly feel a certain craving for mango juice....If this is only the beginning, I will indeed stay hungry for more.

An excellent source of reference

Book title: The Professional Chef, Seventh Edition
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Professional Chef, Seventh Edition - book cover picture

This seventh edition of a Culinary Institute of America classic is an excellent reference guide and source of recipes for the serious chef/cook. Note I said "serious" because it is most definitely not intended for the beginning chef or cook. The recipes are written with the intent of providing large quantities of prepared foods and can be quite complex.
Ingredients may not be available in all areas and the "average" home kitchen will not have all the equipment necessary to produce some of the recipes. That said, the basics of the book including sections on nutrition and ingredients were a more interesting read than I had expected and I learned a great deal. The companion study guide helps to reinforce the information learned. Covering all facets of cooking from sauces to desserts The Professional Chef provides an amazing amount of information in one text.

The Mitten - book cover picture

Jan Brett's beautiful and intricately detailed illustrations bring this Ukranian folk tale to life! In the story, a young boy drops a white mitten in the snow. One by one, various animals squeeze into the warm mitten to keep warm, and every time, the mitten stretches even more. Finally, a small animal moves in, and causes another animal to sneeze, sending the entire group flying from the mitten! Later, Nikki finds his mitten, and hurries home to his grandma, whose expression is the best, as she looks at the stretched mitten! Wonderful story, but evern more wonderful illustrations!

Phase-Locked Loops: Design, Simulation, and Applications - book cover picture

I had to write a software simulation of a PLL, and I didn't know much at all about PLLs. Someone recommended this book to me. From it I learned what I needed, and successfully simulated a PLL in Mathcad to prove that I'd understood the design formulae, and then implemented it in software.
I really appreciated that the important stuff was in the text, unlike some books that leave the interesting cases to be solved by the reader.

What A Great Book

Book title: I Never Promised You a Rose Garden
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
I Never Promised You a Rose Garden - book cover picture

Out of all the books I have read, this is one of the few that I already want to start reading again. The author takes you into the double world of young, confused Deborah. Through Deborah she shows all the little things that are taken for granted in the world by even the lowest class of people. These are simple things such as clear senses and being able to have feelings. This is definitely a book that you have to concentrate hard on and if you decide to read "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" for a school project don't cram the book into one night because there is no way that you will get the emotionally moving feeling from the book that it should give. finally Deborah proves to us all through her struggle that we have the power in ourselves to heal the hurt we feel and the sickness we exhibit.

Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine : 108 Ingenious Shortcuts to Navigate the World of Wine with Confidence and Style - book cover picture

I discovered this book even before I read its glowing feature in my Business Week magazine this week. The cat is now out of the bag -or, forgive me -the cork is now out of the bottle. Oldman's Guide gets to the point with down-to-earth and useful information. It really is all about "shortcuts to a connoisseur's confidence," to borrow a line from the BW review. The organization of the book is the most helpful I've seen in a wine guide -with crisp, funny headings and clear charts. My wife and I have had a lot of fun mastering many of the book's "secret alternative" wines -buying up great and very affordable versions of Barbera, Dolcetto, Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, Viognier and even Chinon, the crisp French red. It has also begun our love affair with Pinot Gris, done best in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, a perfect wine as the weather gets warmer. We refer back to this book endlessly for its sound advice and accessible approach.
