Under the Cherry Blossom Tree : An Old Japanese Tale - book cover picture

My three-year-old daughter and I happened across Under the Cherry Blossom Tree by Allen Say at our local library. It was different from any other kids' book we had read--strange, funny, and maybe a little disturbing. (Face it. We're talking about an old man with a tree growing out of his head.) But because of the humor, the beautiful illustration, and the poetically just ending, it soon became our favorite.One problem was that the library wanted it back. The other problem was that it was out of print.You won't know just how happy I was to find that Under the Cherry Blossom Tree had been re-printed until you read this book for yourself.

My first approach to Human Resources

Book title: Human Resources and Personnel Management

Human Resources and Personnel Management - book cover picture

I am studying Bussiness Administration at the Universidad de los Andes, Santiago Chile. The thing I liked the most about this book is it's great amount of examples aplicable to all scenarios, including our Latinamerican environment, and the chapters' content, follows a practical and logic sequence. I strongly suggest that the author should publish an addendum to be sold separately, with his best advice on the solution for the problems-cases proposed at the end of each chapter. It is amazing how important is the human resource, professionally managed, for modern and successful organizations, even in Latinamerica, where due to low foreign and local investment and high unemployment there is a surplus of qualified professionals.

This simple books makes Zen accessible to the non-Zen

Book title: Zen Fables for Today
Rating: 5/5

Zen Fables for Today - book cover picture

I have found that many books on Zen are written for other Zen practioners. Unfortunately, many of these books seek to dazzle the reader with the paradoxes of Zen rather than stripping away the intellectualization and lay bare the simple (and beautiful) essence of this ancient philosophy. Most important, this unassuming book suggests valuable parables for today, for our everyday lives. Segments have been reprinted in local Zen journals and it is in use in seminars. Within its simplicity lies is power; within its currentness lies its usefulness for today. Like a box of chocolates, it is best savored slowly... a bite at a time.

Meet Harry Potter's Predecessor -- Matilda

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

It's only fair that this book be mentioned in comparison to the Harry Potter books, since this book is similar in tone, character, and sheer genius. In fact, MATILDA is probably the predecessor to Harry Potter, and deserving of as much praise and admiration.Matilda is a girl who doesn't jibe with her parents, is despised by the school principal, Ms. Trunchbowl, and has a wonderfully sweet teacher named Miss Honey. Oh, and Matilda just happens to have special powers. This book follows Matilda in her search for friendship, approval, and the key to her magical powers. The tone in this book is whimsical and magical, with a huge helping of humor and outrageousness. The characters are strong and entertaining, and the story is engaging. This book is a must read for fans of Roald Dahl's other books, specifically CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, as well as fans of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Highly recommended!

The Gods of Eden - book cover picture

I bought this book in a used book store on one of my recent adventures and read it on my way home via Greyhound Bus. It's one of those books that throws a lot of information at the reader very quickly, and it's information that I wasn't familiar with at all...but it made me think. What was Buddha's real teaching? Who was Jesus? Was Ahura Mazda (Zoroastrian) really an E.T. in a space-suit? Those questions interest me since I study religion, but there are also questions dealing with ancient Egypt all the way through modern America. If mind-bending questions interest you, you might just want to pick this one up.

You know, every now and then, something occurs that really gets the mind thinking.

And I know you probably don't want to have to sit and read a super-long essey of a review, so I'll cut to the chase: Why, in the name of all that is good and pure, hasn't one of our presidents picked Tom Clancy as their National Security Advisor>

Film Directing Fundamentals : See Your Film Before Shooting - book cover picture

You will find many books telling you what to do and what not to do when facing the making of a film. Proferes goes far beyond that, showing us the way to find our own way: questioning our selves and questioning our work. After reading Profere's advices, your insight into your own work and motivatons should broaden and you will find how much potential lies behind the most simple idea if you look upon it with inquisitive eyes. Whenever writting or directing, you should keep this book handy. It's a "must-read" for any film maker.

I thought this was a love story between a bear and a dragon?

Book title: The Bear and the Dragon

The Bear and the Dragon - book cover picture

First things first, this is obviously fiction, no way a dragon(and just between us this dragon is actually not very good looking) could in anyway win the love and affection of a bear. I mean he has those big claws and teeth...and all the dragon can do is blow fire...flamer. If you want a really good love triangle rent "A Muppet Movie", many don't see that Kermit is actually in love with is suttle but it's there, look hard. Besides there where no pictures! I haven't spent the last nine years in nineth grade for nothing. I don't even get the symbolism between the dragons cousin and the mongoose, and what was he doing with toothpicks? But all in all I laughed, I cried and it was a roller coaster of emotions....I LOVED IT!!!

Sauces : Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making - book cover picture

This book is excellent for anyone who enjoys cooking whether they're a merely competent cook or a highly skilled chef. Peterson infuses the book with his encyclopedic knowledge of all things epicurian and a subtle sense of humor in a way that makes it eminently readable and useful.The real benefit is that it provides the fundamentals behind making sauces. Anyone looking to expand their repetoire by learning how to make new and creative sauces, or who just needs clear direction on how to make the classics will enjoy this book.Some may find the amount of technical terminology (glaces, coulis, etc.) daunting at first, but Peterson presents the terms and concepts in a way that can be readily understood. "Sauces" is not a recipe book per se, but a first rate instruction manual that happens to include many good recipes. The recipes are clear, but require some grasp of cooking basics.
