Reality Therapy - book cover picture

I read this book at a time when I was dealing with some very difficult people in my life. It helped me to see ways that I could change my own way of dealing with difficult people in constructive ways.In particular, the thing that stuck most with me was the importance of taking responsibility for my own actions, and holding others accountable in appropriate ways.And yes, his book helped A LOT in dealing with difficult people.I have since read another one of Glasser's books and plan to read as many as I can. HIS BOOK IS A CLASSIC.You won't be disappointed.

This book is the best book I have ever read.


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

The Outsiders was one of the best books I have ever read in my life. It was written very well and you could picture in your head what you are reading. The story about the Greasers and the Socials was a good idea because that is close to the truth in the real world. When the writer wrote about Johnny being jumped that was a good idea on her part because it to was close to the real world in some places. I would have to say that my favorite part of the book would have to be the rumble at the end because it had a lot of drama and it made you picture the rumble in your head as you were reading along. I think that the writer should have made the socials put up more of a fight than they did. This book has everything that you would want to read about, violence and close to real live situations. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read or even don't like to read, it is a very good book.

Professional Excel Development : The Definitive Guide to Developing Applications Using Microsoft(R) Excel and VBA(R) - book cover picture

This book is on a different level than all other Excel development books. It starts off with the not so crazy assumption that Excel may be the best development platform available today,the rest of the book goes a long way in showing you why that may be true. Everything from worksheet UI design to creating components using VB6 is included. The only subject given less coverage than it deserves is Data Access, but there are plenty of other books for that. If you're serious in using Excel as a programming platform, buy two copies-1 for your office and 1 to keep at home.

Shortest Way to Learn Java Basics for the Advanced Developer

On to Java 1.2 (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

If your are an old C/C++ hand or if you learned Java a long time ago and did not use it for years, this is the perfect Java introduction for you. It contains high density contents organized in lists of items. No fluff just pure knowledge. Right now this is the first book I use to look up the simple Java concepts. I do not have to wade through long texts or examples to find or not to find something.

If you prefer an easier paved or more pedagogical introduction you are probably better of with the books from Cornell, Eckel, van den Linden, which I use if I do not find what I look for in the Winston book.

If you know have a good working knowledge of Java be warned. The content of this book is the basic and only the basic stuff. You might be bored by this book.

If you have a grasp of the basics of the Java language, you should also learn a little about how to properly use Java and pick up a book like Joshua Bloch "Effective Java".

Straight to the heart of White Rhodesia/Zimbabwe

Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa - book cover picture

Peter Godwin's Mukiwa is probably one of the greatest written treasures to come out of white Africa. Thoroughly entertaining and wonderfuly written, Godwin provides a very detached yet informative account of his life in Rhodesia to the independence wars, and finally to his recollections in the newly independent black run Zimbabwe. Watch for his interpretation on his view of white policy and politics, as well as the adventures of travelling with his mother (the local medical Doctor)through the hot terrorist ridden regions of Rhodesia. Excellent and popular read, and upon personal opinion, the best autobiographical read to have come out of Southern Africa

The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (2 Vol. Set; Thumb Indexed Edition) - book cover picture

I guess you don't buy a dictionary very often.With this premise, "The New Shorter Oxford" Dictionary really delivers good value.The format, layout, contents and "sheer" size of the dictionary is impressive. Also, because I am currently living in Australia it was important for me that it contained British English definitions or equivalents.If you are looking for a comprehensive yet affordable dictionary (and have the desk space for the two volumes) this is it!

Good stuff

Binding: Paperback
Satanic Bible - book cover picture

I thought it was great, I am also opposed to Christianity and think a life of happiness does not depend on deprevation but I am not a satanist however. I'd still reccommend this book to anyone into "darker" religions/the occult, satanist or not. Anton Lavey's views and writing is quite interesting. It gives a few blows to christianity, speaks of indulgence in all things, has a bit on ceremony magic. All in all, 5 stars from me.
