Blues (Vintage) - book cover picture

When I picked up this book, I was a guest at a beach house in Edisto Island, SC. I have a habit of reading the criticism quips before reading, and I found one that fit it perfectly. It was something to the effect of "A book you expect to find in a beach house on a rainy August afternoon, binding mildewed by the ocean air, pages bent from frequent readings, and bits of sand between the pages." That described it exactly, only except it wasn't August. As I said, I picked up the book one day and couldn't put it down. At first, the psuedo-dialogue bothered me, but it really grew on me. The whole premise of the book allows for a real education on fishing, naturalism, and the ways of the world. I have not bought the book, but that is soon to change.

1916 - book cover picture

I knew of this rebellion and thought to gain little from this book but a good read, as I have enjoyed this author's books before. However, I was enlightened as to perspective. My family is Irish and I can assure you that Celtic children often have insights that most adults of other nationalities lack. Even the Irish hounds have insights into character that most human adults lack. I think everyone should read this book. There is too much mis-information out there about this historic fight.

Bridget Jones's Diary - book cover picture

This book is brilliant! Hilarious story of Bridget Jones. This story had me laughing out loud (sometimes to my embarassment) whenever and wherever I was reading it. Helen Fielding is a great author and I recommend this novel to anyone of the following : those who enjoyed the movie, those who enjoyed Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, those who like to laugh, and any women. Certainly the funniest book I've ever read. There is a little bit of Bridget Jones in every women. Don't believe me? Read it yourself and you won't be disappointed.

Ways of the Hand - book cover picture

David Sudnow's phenomenological study, as Hubert Dreyfus states in his introduction to The Rewritten Account, is an altogether unique piece of work. As a (former) piano player, it inspired me to learn a piece of Bach again just so I could rediscover, for myself, some of the phenomena Sudnow describes with such depth. As a casual reader of some of the major existential and phenemonological writers, it strikes me that Sudnow, more than anyone, shows us the phenomenological perspective at work. I haven't read the earlier Harvard edition, which I've been told is very difficult, but this version certainly isn't. It's a flowing account, told beautifully, and I am sure that it will become a classic. I hope Sudnow comes through on his promise and offers us a description of learning a second language. If he makes a contribution to language studies anything like Ways of the Hand makes to the study of handicraft, that would be extraordinary.

The most thorough apologetics text available.

Intellectuals Don't Need God and Other Modern Myths - book cover picture

McGrath's thoroughness makes this the single best apologetics text available today for classroom and personal use. He not only addresses specific issues, he also teaches the reader how to do apologetics by covering apologetic theory: theological basis; points of contact; the nature of faith and commitment; etc. Also, while he addresses philosophical issues, he writes as a theologian and so goes beyond arguments for God's existence and historical evidences to defend doctrinal beliefs as well. He brings in more of the human element.

Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking, Seventh Edition - book cover picture

In fact, it has so much info that I decided I had to summarize the book in my own words, sort of a Cliff's Notes thing. My summary topped off at 8 pages of questions and notes. The one shortcoming of the book is that it did not provide its own summary. Finally, beware: you will come across people who will misunderstand your inquisitiveness and label you as cynical and critical. It's already happened to me.

Managing Customers as Investments : The Strategic Value of Customers in the Long Run - book cover picture

This is a particularly thought-provoking book which, as have so many others, came from Wharton School Publishing. Columbia professors Sunil Gupta and Donald Lehmann have written regularly on the subject of Customer Value and Marketing over the last 20 years. Their articles and books have been standard texts for many MBA students interesting in customer value management for some time. Sunil and Donald have produced a jewel: it is so well written and convincing that, after reading it, you will rethink your customer relationships in terms of value creating opportunity and not in terms of expense.

Very helpful to learn, understand, and use C++ library

The C++ Standard Library : A Tutorial and Reference - book cover picture

Perhaps this book is the best one to help you to mature all of the C++ huge standard (ISO) library.
It covers both the library and its underlying concepts pretty well and completely, with useful examples. This book has helped me to discover very interesting things about the C++ library that have boosted my effectiveness, while at the same time it has allowed me to reach a level of understanding of the library where I can extend it really nice, for instance, defining my own containers and iterators.
It has minor defects, though. Still, you can use it as reference. For example, the index is too small IMHO, and the documentation for routines, classes, templates, etc., surprisingly miss their exact prototypes, so, sometimes you must guess the right types of parameters and the stuff.
In very few words, "It is really worth the price". -= Ed =-

Bridget Jones's Diary - book cover picture

I loved this book! This is one of those, I just got dumped and all boys suck, kind of reads. You need a glass of wine, chocolate, and your favorite blanket to read this one. Made me proud to be a strong, independent, beautiful woman. Bridget goes through so many life altering experiences, all the while making sure she counts her calories. Hilarious! I highly recommend every woman between 18 and 35 read this immediately!
