Geoscience Laboratory, Second Edition - book cover picture

Geoscience Laboratory has been revised for 2004. Many college students these days enter college with no earth science background, then find they are required to take a science lab course. Geoscience Laboratory addresses this deficiency by using many 'real world' examples and geology in the news as example of geological principles. Geoscience Laboratory encourages students to answer questions based on the materials they have studied, not merely to look up answers in the book. Exercises in this book have been extensively tested in a real university setting before publication. The book attempts to serve two audiences--students for whom a basic geology course is their only college level lab science, as well as potential majors taking their first college class, and, from a teaching assistant's point of view, does a good job as the basis for the lab classwork.

The Demon-Haunted World : Science as a Candle in the Dark - book cover picture

I always knew that Sagan was the best science writer in recent memory bar none (and by far the best scientist writing on science) but this, his next to last book, really is a slam-dunk.
Humanity's loss at his death was immeasurable.

The only bad thing I can say about this book is that the people who stand to learn most from it are probably never going to read it. If you have even the remotest interest in science (or pseudo-science for that matter), you will find this fascinating and stimulating reading.

Buy a couple of copies for yourself and your friends. I heartily recommend it to younger readers who might realize that the real celebrities and role models aren't strutting their stuff on MTV and ESPN but holed up in a science lab somewhere.

Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War - book cover picture

This was a very accurate account of this event. I would suggest to anyone who wants a clear picture of what happened in this fight that they read the book and let the movie fall second behind what is reality. Everyone should read this book to know a little bit more about the sacrifices that soldiers have to make when in the line of duty. It's a very sobering affect and should make you very proud to be an American. Only people who have been there and know what it's like truly have a right to criticize any military actions taken on for the sake of freedom and democracy. People who don't know better and who don't live in this country should keep their mouths closed.

Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of World War II - book cover picture

As non-native speaker of the japanese language, I am amazed at the amount of research that Dower must have completed for this title in the sphere of japanese documents and other reference materials that native japanese themselves rarely open.
As a native english speaker, I am thoroughly impressed with his application of that language to a non-fiction subject. The most complex situations are regularly rolled up in a single sentence. The progression is so smooth that you may not even notice that after (x) pages you've somehow absorbed the level of understanding that a lot of authors would deliver in (x) chapters.

Captains and the Kings - book cover picture

The intrigues and and captives of this incredibly epic saga take place mostly in the 19th century, and it is a tale of a man named Joseph Armagh, an Irish man. Joseph has come as a poor immigrant child to this great United States of America, only to find it is not a land of opportunity at all, unless of course, you have money, which is his one and only goal. Money rules and supremes all in this terrific tale of one man who will settle for nothing less than the country he has adopted, but who finds that perhaps in the end, honesty and integrity might not have been a bad idea after all.

The Selected Poetry of Yehuda Amichai (Literature of the Middle East) - book cover picture

Reading Yehuda Amichai in Hebrew is wonderful. His sense of word is matched only by the way in which his whimsy and depth reflect Israel. But translations in English have been so bad that the translators, editors, and publishers of such editions should probably be exiled to a supermarket in the suburbs where they are forced to listen to Rod McKuen all day. This, on the other hand, is poetry. I attribute the success of this volume to the fact that both Chana Bloch and Stephen Mitchell, the translators, are such outstanding poets and translators in their own rights. A few of my favorite poems are missing, but so many wonderful ones are here; reading them in this English is like discovering them all over again, and discovered how good he is all over again.

The Greatest Military Novel Ever!


Book title: Once an Eagle
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Once an Eagle - book cover picture

As a Marine Corps officer I have read several books about war and warriors and I can honestly say that Once An Eagle rates as one of the best. Not only does this book provide numerous inspiring examples of leadership and courage, both physical and moral, it also gives the reader a penetrating insight into the different types of personalities within the officer corps. The reviewer who questioned the authority Mr. Myrer's insights on leadership due to his rank as an enlisted Marine in the Pacific theater demonstrated his irretrievable ignorance in so doing. Therefore, anyone interested in this book should completly ignore his review. As an officer who was once enlisted, I can assure you that our enlisted Marines are provided ample oportunites to both practice and observe effective leadership. It is often our NCOs and SNCOs who are the best judges of an officer's effectiveness.

The best book I've read in a long time...

Frost at Christmas - book cover picture

I love the mysteries of Colin Dexter and Reginald Hill, so when a friend mentioned that the Frost series had a lot in common with them, I had to buy one. I was definitely not disappointed. Jack Frost is the most hilarious character I've ever come across. He usually says whatever pops into his head whether it's appropriate or not.I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes British police procedurals. You won't be disppointed!

Caucasia - book cover picture

I am in absolute LOVE with this book! For my vocabulary class we were assigned to read a novel over the course of the semester. Silly me chose the book simply because of its nice looking cover (tisk tisk) Little did I know what a lasting effect this book would have on me. I can definately relate to the main character Birdie, growing up and dealing with the usual boys, partying, sex and all that good stuff. But there is maybe one thing that the majority of us don't experience...growing up the product of a biracial marriage and being seperated from the only thing we know and love. I just can't say enough good things about this book and I definately would recommend it to all!
