The Dark Is Rising Sequence: Silver on the Tree/The Grey King/Greenwitch/The Dark Is Rising/Over Sea, Under Stone - book cover picture

I received these books as a birthday present when I was 9, and have reread them several times since. Susan Cooper's mingling of time travel, mythology, and history makes this series unforgettable. I think these books are probably responsible for my lifelong interest in Celtic mythology, Dark Age Britain, and the Arthurian legends. The Dark Is Rising belongs with Mary Stewart's Merlin Trilogy, Marian Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon, and Rosemary Sutcliff's The Sword at Sunset as a classic!

Web Guide to 3D Avatars - book cover picture

Ms. Wilcox offers a wealth of information - lots in the book and even more on the CD. After reading the respective chapters, one gets a fairly accurate idea of what a specific program or developing environment can do an what it can't. Next one can move to the demo versions provided on CD - of course, the book cannot fully document any of the programs it introduces, but as an overview of the field, it is quite comprehensive and packed with information. If you're new to the field, buy it and read it fast, before it becomes outdated.

Pope Joan : A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

I am not a Catholic, and have absolutely no stake in anything to do with The Church. So I read this book with interest, but no preconceived opinions.

I found this fascinating.

Joan is a girl of her time (~800AD) who is extremely driven and who, by a stroke of luck (good or ill, one cannot say), finds herself acting as a boy - her brother. She becomes a monk, healer, scholar, and finally...pope.

There is some historical evidence for this myth, apparently. To this day, a new pope's tested for... wedding tackle.

Whatever the amount of truth, this story was a wonderful read.

The Mystery of the Pirate Ghost (Step-Into-Reading, Step 4) - book cover picture

This book I thought was great. I would recommend this book to any kid that has a good imagination and that wants to know everything. This book would be great for kid imagination and would get it going because the book keeps you going until the end where it finally shows you the culprit. Let me tell you some about the book without ruining it for you. It's about this kid named Otto that has an uncle that has been around a lot and has been on lots of trips and adventures. Now this "ghost" has been on the run after stealing things from Boogle Bay. They had a plan to catch the ghost as they think it is but the play fails. After a bit they end up having another plan using a trumpet that uncle Tooth had given to Otto. To find out what happens next be sure to read this book its great. I thought it had good pictures and well written for kids.

After some recommendations and research of my own, I went out and bought this book. As I started the plan I found that I could study for greater lengths of time without getting fatigued and was not hungry the entire time (especially helpful for college students around finals time). Along with my regualar exercise regimen the weight came flying off. I have so much energy and my health has improved greatly. I reccommend this book to everyone that is williing to commit to a better way of dealing with food.

A Worthwhile Text

1421 : The Year China Discovered America - book cover picture

I thought this was a very good text and worth reading.I won't say allot due to many fine comments already made.
Yes, there was much circumstancial evidence in the text. If however the text is true, the future research maybe a treasure trove of information.If nothing else can be said there is allot of fine documentation and research invovled in the hypothesis. I hope to see continued scientific evidence and support for this thesis/topic. The investment in time it took in reading such a monster was worthwhile. Semper Fidelis

Isak Dinesen : The Life of a Storyteller - book cover picture

Judith Thurman casts light on the fascinating life of karen Blixen a woman who not only lived her life on her own terms but accepted life's judgments on her own terms. If you were intrigued by the movie Out of Africa after reading Judith Thurman's biography you'll realize that there was so much more to this woman than a great love affair with Denys Finch Hatton; the trials she faced in Africa were the blueprint to her growth as a writer and a woman. It is a fascinating read which only made me want to learn more about Isak Dinesen and read more of Judith Thurman on ANY subject. Highly recommend it!

An excellent introduction to pattern recognition

Book title: Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition - book cover picture

Do not be put off by the title: this book is more about pattern recognition than neural networks. Of course it covers neural networks, but the central aim of the book is to investigate statistical approaches to the problem of pattern recognition. An excellent companion to "Duda & Hart".As other reviewers have said: you will need a reasonable maths or stats background to get the most out of this book.

Ilse Witch (The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara, Book 1) - book cover picture

Amazing. There are few books that hold your interest throughout the entire story, but Terry has certainly accomplished that with THE ISLE WITCH. I could NOT put this book down! And when I had to put it down (one has to EAT, I suppose) I couldn't wait to get back to it. The story moves quickly and the characters are colorful and engaging, each with his own story to tell and problems to overcome. The plot is incredible ... it kept me guessing and wondering at every turn - the revelations and hidden agendas ... the mystery and the magic ... THE ISLE WITCH is a combination of murder mystery, drama, fantasy, sci-fi, and more! Mark my words, by the last page you will be desperate for more! Terry has pulled out all the stops with this new series in the Shannara universe. Until now, my favorite has always been the first book, SWORD OF SHANNARA. But THE ISLE WITCH (and the upcoming books in the VOYAGE series) will prove to be my new favorites by far.
