Dying to Quit: Why We Smoke and How We Stop - book cover picture

"Dying to Quit" really helped me understand why quitting smoking is so difficult--and why I gained 40 pounds in the process. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to quit smoking and to anyone who has ever smoked. It is easy to understand and relate to. After reading "Dying to Quit", I'm sure glad that I was finally able to kick the habit before it "kicked" me!

The Almond Picker : A Novel - book cover picture

I picked this book up from the library shelf, attracted by the cover picture of a fruit tree in blossom and the relatively small size (5"X7"). I noted that it was over three hundred pages. My usual method for deciding on a book is to read the first paragraph and if it grabs my attention, I take it home. This book was a wonderful surprise. I started reading the first page and could not stop.
It is the story of the life of a servant in the household of the town's most prominent family. The town is a small one in Sicily. This in itself was fascinating as I knew little about Sicily.
The author develops a captivating tale through the eyes of most of the townspeople. This, in turn involves you in the lives of all of them. You become a member of this charming community.
I heartily recommend this book. In fact, I am going to purchase a copy for a gift for my Sicilian descended daughter-in-law.

Emotional Weight: Change Your Relationship With Food by Changing Your Relationship With Yourself - book cover picture

Colleen Sundermeyer has written an insightful book about how people with eating disorders relate to themselves and to their food. After 30 years of battling with binging, purging & starving, I think I can safely say that this author knows what she's talking about. Not only were my feelings validated by her observations, but she also gave extremely helpful information about how my body utilizes food. For the first time in my life, I feel that I truly understand how how my emotions came into play in trapping me in an unhealthy pattern of binging, guilt, purging & food restriction. While reading (& rereading) the book, I highlighted the items I want to incorporate into my search for wellness and created a to-do list which is tremendously helpful to me. I am beginning to trust myself with decisions about food, & I'm confident I'm on the road to recovery. Thank you Dr. Sundermeyer!

Gates of Fire - book cover picture

In 480 B.C. all of western history was balanced on the spear points of three hundred men. This is a personal account of a squire to a Spartan hoplite who perished with his comrades in a stand against impossible odds. The author meticulously recreates the day-to-day life of a Spartan citizen and the training that made him unique among the Greek city states. This is not the Greece of Mary Renault who represented the best of ancient Greece through the eyes of the cultivated and cultured Athenians. This is an unsparing account of harsh realities of Spartan life and death. The author has also captured the essence of what leadership was, is, and should be in military service. Should be required reading at military academies and colleges. Pressfield has set a new standard for this genre. Once you start, you won't be able to put it down.

The Perfect Storm : A True Story of Men Against the Sea - book cover picture

This is an absolutely shocking book, but equally compulsive reading at the same time. I just couldn't put it down. The author states at the beginning of the book that he didn't wish to make up conversations and thoughts for the various ill fated men who people his book, and it is this cold and clinical distance that makes the book the riveting tale that is is. But at the same time the thoughts and memories of the people who loved them are touching and sad, and it gives the book an additional depth that it would otherwise have lacked.It is a very cleverly written book, on a topic that you wouldn't think would have universal appeal, but it is a book you should read nonetheless. You won't forget it.

Absolute Truths - book cover picture

I too have read all of Susan Howatch's novels about the Church of England, including a seventh, The Wonder Worker, an unexpected and wonderful gift from the author to her fans. But it is Absolute Truths to which I keep returning at least once a year. What a beautifully and deeply moving story--of a character, Charles Ashworth, who wasn't my favorite throughout the other five novels. I always have a great cry when I read this novel and this time I've been moved to do something more--to begin a ladies prayer group. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Susan Howatch. Yes, you can read this book simply for entertainment or distraction. But it will reach deep into your soul anyway!

Virtual War - book cover picture

This is a great book. I highly recremend it. The way it was written makes you feel like you're in the war and seeing it first hand. It was full of action and set in the future, and its plot introduced a creative way to think what the furure is going to be like. Even more important than the idea of what the future is going to be like was how they fought the war. The war was in virtual reality, which meant nobody actually died, even though the fighting felt very real. That is a great idea. Virtual War has suspense, action, great characters, and is extremely exciting. You've got to read it!

The Art of Innovation : Lessons in Creativity from IDEO, America's Leading Design Firm - book cover picture

This is an entertaining and accessible read. Tom Kelley lets us in on the IDEO philosophy and approach to innovation in product and service design. While there are more appropriate alternatives for studying the mechanics of new product development such as Cooper's "Winning at New Products, Accelerating the Process from Idea to Launch", this book addresses the often-misunderstood need to create a culture of innovation. IDEO has figured out how to accelerate learning during the "fuzzy front end" of new product development. A great book for inspiring anyone involved in the new product development process.Kelly includes memorable labels such as the seven brainstorming steps,
1. Sharpen the Focus
2. Playful Rules
3. Number Your Ideas
4. Build and Jump
5. The Space Remembers
6. Stretch Your Mental Muscles
7. Get PhysicalHe also includes wonderful examples and stories. The production quality is what you would expect from a design group-great photos and layout. Even the paper feels good.

Faded Coat of Blue (Abel Jones Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Owen Parry is a new historical novelist to watch. In "Faded Coat of Blue", Parry (pseudonym of an established writer of both thought-provoking non-fiction and modern thrillers) has produced a moving and evocative protrait of Civil War-era Washington. The murder mystery carries the story along, but the book is really the chronicle of the love affair of a Welsh immigrant Indian Army veteran for his new country. Accurate in portraying time and place, the prose often becomes lyrical, conveying the touch, feel and smell of the era. As Owen Parry, the writer has achieved a new "voice", displaying a storytelling skill rarely matched. Students of American history will gain new insights into our past through the eyes of the protagonist, Abel Jones. Owen Parry and Abel Jones will be names to watch as this continuing Civil War saga unfolds in the coming years.
