Enterprise Java Computing : Applications and Architectures (SIGS: Managing Object Technology) - book cover picture

When this book arrived I thumbed through it and dismissed it as just a rehash of EJB, Servlets, RMI, etc.. However, I decided to have a look at it and was pleased to discover a concise, clear and practical guide to these Java APIs. More than a rehash, this book is a well-paced tour with excellent examples illustrating the concepts. The author provides the why along with the how at an appropriate depth.

Read if you want to help your children think for themselves

Coloring Outside the Lines: Raising a Smarter Kid by Breaking All the Rules - book cover picture

If you think that the most important thing for kids to learn is to mind their elders you probably WON'T like this book. But if you think that parents' most important educational mission is to help their children develop the skills, motivation, and self-confidence to think for themselves, then this is a really GREAT book to read. Schank is the rare writer who knows how to turn theoretical insights about how the mind works and how people learn into straightforward practical advice. Concerned parents will find valuable advice here. I expect that the many teachers dissatisfied with the status quo will also find much of interest in this book.

Ramses: The Son of Light - Volume I (Vol 1) - book cover picture

When I first looked at this book in the book shop, I think it is really boring ( because the cover isn't attractive and i think ' Ramses' is a boring topic ) so I decided not to buy it. But my friend say that this book is really amazing, so she lent it to me.
After I have read this book, I totally agree with my friend. This book is so romantic and attractive. Although the beginning maybe a little bit boring, but you are unable to put up when you are reading it.
This book tells about the life of Ramses and how he could be a pharaoh. The vocabulary of this book is quite difficult, so I think it's more suitable for those who are over 15 years old.

Gets even better the 5th time around!


Book title: Outlander
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Outlander - book cover picture

I have read Diana Gabaldon "Outlander"/"Cross Stitch" series at least 4 times in the past 7 years. Each time I read them, I love them more. The characters are so vivid and complex, they feel "real" to the reader. Diana's thorough research into 18th century Scottish history along with 18th century American history is unbelievable. To imagine that she has a PhD in marine biology and yet can write a series like this is amazing. It is only a shame that it there is so much time between books (which is easy to understand, I wouldn't want a shallow book. The detail needed is very important). Definately read this book if you are thinking about it!

A Haunting and Unforgettably Sad Novel

Martin Dressler : The Tale of an American Dreamer - book cover picture

The negative reviews I read here were the first I had encountered. (Then again, I had read nothing of "Martin Dressler" when I first picked it up.)This is perhaps the most haunting, unforgettable novel I have read in more than a decade. For those who feel our life is filled with hollowness, and wonder if those creating "spectacles" for our "enjoyment" have any understanding how deeply depressing their supposed entertainments are to our already oversaturated minds, "Martin Dressler" offers a sad but insightful answer: Yes, they do, and there is nothing they can do about it.My only hope is someone will come along with the vision and artistry to turn Millhauser's beautiful prose into what could be a very rewarding and fascinating film.

A must-read for anyone searching for a "meaning of life"

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - book cover picture

Thought this book would be a no-brainer--it was on loan from a friend and I hadn't even asked to read it. Now I have to "own" this one. Once every so many years, a book comes along that you feel obligated to share with as many people as possible, and this one is it for me. I actually copied some of the excerpts in my "book" journal and reread frequently. This book touches on many issues and opportunities in life, love, and even death, and anyone who reads this book with an open mind (and an open heart) will not be disappointed, and will be enriched beyond words.

A joy to read and cornerstone of American literature and art


Book title: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - book cover picture

Mark Twain is rightly regarded as an icon of American literature. Of his works, Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer are the most famous, and of the two Huckleberry Finn is generally held to be the finer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as part of my introduction to American literature. Mark Twain had a sharp wit and his stories are rich with character, personalities, language, irreverant humor and situations. The historical aspect of the story is also interesting and important. The story gives a human-level view of Mississippi towards the end of slavery. The N-word is in common usage, but in an everyday context not as a derogatory term. The story shows some interesting and perhaps unexpected relationships and allegences. The wisdom and ignorance of the two main protagonists is a constant source of joy and humor. Highly recommended for adults and teenagers alike.

Black Dogs - book cover picture

Mcewen fans will love this book-I put it in the same class as the best of Mcewen, i.e., Enduring Love. This is a book that explores the struggle between rationalism and spiritualism, and contains some of the most graceful writing you will see. In particular, the preface is phenomenally appealing, and will not allow you to put the book down. The same is true for the characters' musings on war as the accumulation of countless personal tragedies. This is a good one!

Georgia O'Keeffe : Catalogue Raisonne - book cover picture

This book was on my wish list before it was published! I received it as a gift upon my graduation from Art Center College of Design. I have loved Georgia O'Keefe's work since I was very young, and I have most of the books published about her and this one is not only the most comprehensive but beautiful as well. In a review I read it was described as 'cumbersome', obviously not written by an artist. How can you reduce a life's work into one volume especially a life that was so influential to so many artists, especialy women. I give it my highest recommendation.

A Glorious and Poetic Novel of Fated Love


Book title: Four Letters of Love
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Four Letters of Love - book cover picture

Steeped in local Irish lore this brillianted crafted and flawlessly rendered novel is a deep meditation on the mystical nature of love and destiny. The dreamlike plot is leisurely paced, unfolding one small piece at a time as seemingly random acts and incidents build and accrue and lead to the the eventual meeting of lovers Isabel and Nicholas. FOUR LETTERS OF LOVE makes magical sense of how every moment is woven into a larger whole and that the inability to understand fate is nothing more than an inability to gain the proper perspective. There is a deep logic in this universe and everything is as it should be. There is so much in this multi-layered book. Engrossing, provocative, haunting, lyrical, wise ... and to top it off it culminates with a great payoff and a very satisfying conclusion.
