Hegel and Modern Society (Modern European Philosophy) - book cover picture

The book does deserve five stars--but there is a need to call attention to the preface of "Hegel and Modern Society," which is absent from the free, searchable content available here. Professor Taylor candidly puts it, in the preface, that this book is substantially the same as the various chapters in his excellent "Hegel" dealing with Hegel's relation to contemporary society. In short, if you own a volume of Taylor's "Hegel" you already have the content of this book--you needn't buy both.

The Lovely Bones: A Novel - book cover picture

Alice Sebold should get five stars for imagination alone. Her conception of the afterlife as seen through the eyes of a murdered fourteen year old is unique and original and will have you seeking out people who've read the book so you can talk about it.I found the book hard to put down once I started, and a little awed by the flood of emotions it managed to stir up. I've tried hard to stay away from reading many of the reviews until I was finished because I didn't want to know too much. Hard to classify: Ghost story? Suspenseful mystery? Painful and honest family portryal? It seems to capture so many different facets in an honest and affirming way I don't think you can help but be affected. This little girl, her life and death with stay with you. A book truly worthy of its accolades.

Compelling story, but.......

All the Pretty Horses - book cover picture

The story was first rate, and I found myself very involved with the characters. But, CM's lack of quotation marks and use of run-on sentences drove me to distraction! A story that should have been a beautiful and lyrical read was continually interrupted because I had to go back to the beginning of a dialogue to figure out who said what. Ditto for the run-on sentences - he would start a sentence talking about one thing, and end it on a completely different subject. If I had the book with me right now, I would cite examples. I will only recommend this book to very patient readers, and I will tell them to persevere... because, buried in that grammatical mess is a wonderful story. Everbody else should wait for the movie. If Hollywood stays true to the story, it will be a winner!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) - book cover picture

Congradulations to J.K. Rowling for creating such wonderful stories about a boy named Harry Potter going to wizarding school. I couldn't wait to sit down with my son and read it to him to find out what would happen next. I appreciated the more detailed plot and suspense of finding out what was happening and why. My son really liked a part at the end but I can't tell you what that is, so you'll need to read it.

Market Wizards : Interviews with Top Traders (New York Institute of Finance (Hardcover)) - book cover picture

If I could only have one book on trading, it would be "Reminisces of a Stock Operator" by Edwin Lefevre. If I could have two, "Market Wizards" would be my second choice. A lot of books on trading are written by guys who couldn't trade their way out of a paper bag. Not this one. Track records are posted, and the traders interviewed in this book have collectively taken hundreds of millions out of the markets. Schwager, while not a great trader himself (and humble enough to admit it), knows enough about the markets to ask all the right questions. A must read for traders (especially futures traders).

Response Surface Methodology: Process and Product Optimization Using Designed Experiments - book cover picture

Doug Montgomery and Ray Myers are excellent teachers who have taught and written texts on applied subjects for engineers and other statistical practitioners. The subjects have included regression, design and analysis of experiments, linear models and response surfaces. Myers wrote the best applied text on response surfaces in the 1970s. With this text the two team up to provide a recent and thorough account of the methodology. It incorporate modern techniques such as the Taguchi and other robust designs and incorporate a response surface approach with these variance models.

Vidal is a master of political deceit & betrayal

Washington, D.C. : A Novel (Vintage International) - book cover picture

A vividly accurate portrayal of what people will do to further their (political) careers and to get ahead in life. Although the book takes place mainly in the 40's, you can make a case where it is still relevent in today's society. The character development is good and you find yourself cheering for no one but sympathizing with most. This is the first Vidal book I have read and I look forward to exploring more in his series.

Grisham surpasses my expectations yet again

A Painted House - book cover picture

I'm a big fan of John Grisham and wasn't sure i'd like this book since it's a deviation from the normal story he tells. Yet in the first chapter alone, I am struck once more by his ability to tell a story. This is a wonderful tale of life growing up in rural Arkansas told through the eyes of a 7 year old boy. Most notably I was struck by Grisham's tongue in cheek sense of humor. I highly recommend this book and would love to see a sequal to the story. If you liked Angela's Ashes...you'll love A Painted House!

The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials S.) - book cover picture

I think the novel The Subtle Knife is an interesting read. The troubles of Will and Lara will intrigue the young and old readers of the second book of a fantastic and moving trilogy The Dark Materials. It's an amazing idea put on to paper to create a world of excitement and adventure. It's about a number of worlds put together by Lord Asreil who made a bridge joining the worlds, but he didn't know what or who might be across that bridge but was determined to find out. As Lara crosses the bridge little does she know she's about to join forces with a boy she scarcely knows.

Where Is Jesus (Hear Me Read Big Book) - book cover picture

I'm always looking for new holiday books to share with my readers of "Church and Synagogue Libraries". I love this fun, comic strip film or video animated like book for preschool and primary age because it portrays the story of the first Easter in a way that youngest readers and listeners can enjoy a story on their leval of understanding. I picture little ones in a storytime or lying on their stomachs in a library (or at home)wide-eyed reading or listening to the story. I heartily recommended it to my readers and to all looking for a good Easter storybook for young children. I can't wait to share it with my granddaughters at Eastertime or before.
