Gift of Pain, The - book cover picture

As someone who suffers a considerable amount of pain, thanfully not from leprosy, I have to admit, until I read this book I never considered that pain was a gift. This is the inspiring story of one doctor's campaign to eradicate the suffering of those affected by leprosy. As he worked, Paul Brand discovered that God had granted us pain as a gift, and consequently, not all solutions lay in medical textbooks. The Gift of Pain would make a wonderful gift for anyone who cares about people. A difficult book to put down.

Homer Price - book cover picture

I remember this book from my childhood (long ago) and I was pleased to find it again while browsing the Childrens' Library. What I recall most vividly are the illustrations (also by author McCloskey) of the odd but likable characters from Homer's town. Seeing them again after all these years brought back a flood of memories of the time when I was first beginning to discover books. In fact, I don't recall really reading the book then, just looking at the pictures. Reading it today, I find that "Homer Price" retains the charm and spirit of a simpler era, sort of a children's version of Lake Wobegon. Nice to see an old favorite still in print.

Last Train to Memphis : The Rise of Elvis Presley - book cover picture

The greatest book about the greatest entertainer of all-time.This book is excellent and, of course, the best Elvis biography ever. The extent of Guralnick's research makes this a must read for everyone, even the Elvis fan who knows "everything."This book is told more from the Elvis' point of view than its sequel, and is, consequently, a much better book. This book goes a long way in convincing those ignorant in the history of music that true Elvis rock-n-roll is simply a melding of Country and R&B.

Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls - book cover picture

I read this in a night- I'd recommend to any female, of any age. I'm 32 & some of this stuff I still hadn't pieced together- I used to be one of those for whom meanness did not compute. As far as being clinical, it's largely in the introduction & is probably necessary for Simmons to establish credibility among her peers- skip it if you don't like it & get right to the case studies- you will see yourself.

Foundations of Employment Discrimination Law (Interdisciplinary Readers in Law Series) - book cover picture

If anyone has ever tried to make clear the the foundations of employment discrimination law, Donohue cuts them to dust. His brilliant piece is more than just a clever name. Although it is unfortunate that his affable sense of humor takes a back seat, he still manages to grip the reader with his exceptional analyses and pertinant data. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest interest in the field of employment discrimination law. In fact, it should be standard reading in every law school across the country. No library or bookstore worth its salt is complete without this book.

QBQ! The Question Behind the Question: Practicing Personal Accountability in Work and in Life - book cover picture

Curious as to the meaning of QBQ, I picked up this book in the airport and finished it before my husband's plane landed. By the time he had retrieved his luggage, I had made the decision to buy a dozen copies to share with each member in my department. Buying books for coworkers is not my usual practice so that alone is saying something about how beneficial I found the message of QBQ. Each of my team members humored me by agreeing to read

This book was so good. I recommend it to anyone. When I first began reading it, I didn't really like it. But then, when I started reading again, I couldn't put it down! But that shouldn't have surprised me. Ann M. Martin is my favorite author, and I love Paula Danziger's Amber Brown series. Of course when they combine their talents, the book is going to be great! Please read this. You won't regret it!

From page one, this book grabbed me. Really enjoyed the characters and the way the author tells a story using the same surrealistic approach Gabriel Garcia Marquez uses in 100 Years of Solitude. Characters you don't want to say goodbye to when the book is finished and a way of telling a sad yet happy story with a bittersweet ending that makes you smile and cry at the same time. Excellent. Can't wait for Golding's next book.

Temple of the Winds (Sword of Truth, Book 4) - book cover picture

This review is for Terry Goodkind in particular. Your Sword of Truth series is the best fantasy sequence we have read to date, a truly astounding work of art. From the moment we began Wizards First Rule, we have been helplessly entangled in the 'adventures' of Richard and Kahlan, and their continuing quests to rescue the world from evil. Temple of the Winds definately does not deserve such appaling reviews, being a part of the finest fantasy series available. Having read the series so far, as many times as well-read books can tolerate, we desperately await the arrival of your next literary feat, and would be undyingly grateful for any snippets of what is to come. As an after thought, we would dearly like to see Rachel and Chase again, after the instructions Zedd gives Chase in paragraph four, page 57 in the paperback edition of Stone of Tears, about teaching Rachel to be a warrior. In hope of future contact.
