Bill Graham Presents : My Life Inside Rock and Out - book cover picture

Known for his groundbreaking entrepreneurship as the first rock music promoter, Bill Graham provides some surprises in this outstanding autobiography. His account of his family's flight from the Holocaust provides a moving and gripping first act. There is plenty of color as he essentially invents the "rock concert" as we now know it, and contributions in their own words from key figures in his life provide a well-rounded portrait of this powerful, driven man.

Even if your interest in rock music is small, this biography will hold your attention due to its rich evocation of a fascinating life.

Mrs. Mike

Mrs. Mike - book cover picture

As with many of your other reviwers, I first read this book 30-some years ago, as a teen, or a young adult. The images have stayed with me lo these many years!! What a wonderful gamut of emotions I experience each and every time I re-read it (once every few years!)
When reading about the epidemic as a teen, my thoughts were, "Oh, how sad." Reading about it as an adult, I thought, "Oh, how tragic." Reading about it after I had become a mother, my tears would not stop.
What a wonderful, sparkling, then despairing, finally content and loving relationship between Mike & Kathy! The desciptions of the vast wilderness and its people are humorous, breathtaking and heart-breaking. What a wonderful reading experience! I can't wait to get my own copy (the local library's is wearing out!) so I can pass it on to my daughter when I feel she's old enough to appreciate all that is Mrs. Mike!

Only Book That Truely Terrified Me!!


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

OK, so along with Terry Brooks and occasionally Stephen King, I am also a Dean Koontz fan. Most of his books are good reads, but average. However I have two of his books on my shelf that I have re-read several times. One is Dark Rivers of the Heart and the other is Intensity. Both great books, but Intensity is the only book that ever scared the hell out of me, and I don't scare easily. In fact, the only other thing in my life that ever scared me was the original Alien movie I saw in the theater when I was 9 years old. This book is a great read for late at night! P.S. Avoid the movie, its cheesy beyond belief!

Crichton's best


Book title: Prey
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Prey - book cover picture

It is difficult to choose from Michael Crichton's works, the man who gave dinosaurs a new lease of life. However, Prey is his best yet.

Based on Nanotechnology and its risks, the best part of the novel is the tension and involvement he creates. I could identify very closely with the characters and experienced a lot of anxieties as the climax aproached.

What is also remarkable is that he manages to teach a lot while entertaining. This is a useful byproduct.

This book also brings the conflict home, as a husband tries to battle not only his wife's company, but his wife too. The dilemma is unnerving.

Defintely Crichton's best.

A.J.Downing set a standard for early Victorian architecture.

Victorian Cottage Residences (Dover Architectural Series) - book cover picture

A.J. Downing set the style for country suburban Victorian Cottages and gardens along the Hudson River in the 1830's and 1840's. All of his "cottages" featured fireplaces and architecturally important chimneys, usually with decorative chimney tops. Borrowing from painting and fine arts, Downing had definite opinions about color and appropriate use of materials. Provocative and interesting reading this book of cottage and garden plans and sketches is well worth reading. He set a standard for early Victorian architecture. - Jim Buckley

Fantastic cliff notes for American historical figures

My Fellow Americans: A Family Album - book cover picture

I first picked this book up in a Fifth Grade observation and it just struck me as unique. I have used this book for fifth grade social studies. Each page is like a mini-mural with many details that will go unnoticed by the casual reader. I even painted a mural for the classroom based on one of the paintings in the book. The text is simple enough for low readers but the content and scope of the book makes it intriguing for advanced readers as well. I think this book would be a great reference for those taking a A.P history test. I really admire the folk art inspiration for Provenson's art.

Algorithms and Data Structures in C++ - book cover picture

I've been hunting around for a while now for a book which teaches data structures using C++ as the implementation language. I think I've finaly found it in this book. All other books I've looked at have just been poor rewrites of previous C algorithm books.The material is clearly explained most of the time, always with an example to show the algorithm at work. The book focuses on algorithms and data structures that you might actually use one day, unlike some other books which have all these wierd and wonderful algorithms but which you will probably never need to use.This is the book to have when you start forgeting all that data structure stuff you did in college and you need a review.The best thing about this book is that it's only ~350 pages so it wont take you years to get through.

Jurassic Park Rocks!

Binding: Hardcover
Jurassic Park - book cover picture

I loved this book! This is coming from a 12 year old who has read it 4 times! I didn't get a lot of the science stuff but oh well. It had things that weren't mentioned in the movie, like the Hadrosaurs and the Pterodactles. The river ride was radacle! It was cool how they fell down the waterfall into the reach of a Tyranosaur! Oops! For those who haven't read it, I suggest this be your next choice of reading material! Many things are different, changed, or not in the movie. The start of the Lost World movie is the begining of JP the book. Sooooo...... READ THIS BOOK!
