Stealing Jesus : How Fundamentalism Betrays Christianity - book cover picture

Bawer contrasts the ideology of Christianity's legalistic and fundamentalist factions with Christ's - and Christianity's - ultimate edict (i.e. to love God with all heart, soul and mind, and love neighbor as self). This book offers a kinder, more loving Christian perspective/vision and exposes the weaknesses of legalistic Christian ideology. It improved my perspective on God and life; I'm happier because of this book. I also highly recommend Peter Gomes' "The Good Book" (about the Bible and Christianity). He is a world-renowned minister and offers the most spiritually sound, uplifting vision of Christiniaty I've come across.

Life of Thomas More, The - book cover picture

I crawled through this book on my hands and knees. Ackroyd's dense sentences full of flavour and charm sucked me down into the middle of More's culture of Catholism and regency. I am not a scholar, just a reader who built tremendous respect for Ackroyd's ability to handle psychological complexity. More's struggle with duality as Ackroyd presents it, has all the tension and benchmarks of lives being lived in the late 20th century. Each chapter is wonderfully complete.

Incisive and unconventional thinking

Power Base Selling: Secrets of an Ivy League Street Fighter - book cover picture

Power Base Selling is incisive, unconventional and a hell of a good read. The book started with a clean slate as to how sales (and for that matter, all business relationships)should be conducted, and it comes up with some completely counterintuitive positions. Each section of the book draws something from the warrior/philosopher Sun Tzu, often condensing the section's poignant examples and real-world techniques into a memorable sound-bite that I find myself muttering under my breath as I ponder strategies. Stylistically, the book is crisp and accessible. Since I first encountered Power Base a few years ago, I have given away probably a dozen copies, many to friends who aren't even in sales. Like Carnegie's "How to Win Friends . . .", the insight on the workings of business politics are useful for almost everything. Highly recommended!

One of the most enjoyable books in recent years

The End of Science (Helix Books) - book cover picture

The End of Science is delightful to read. Horgan has done a masterful job with his subject. It is fun to see what many leading scientists are like and what they are thinking about science. It is clear from the book that the scientists themselves do not agree about the future of science. Horgan's thesis that science is in its twilight years is unprovable, but it is persuasive and provides coherence to the book. The arcane details of science can be hard to follow, but the issues of the future and role of science are meaningful to anyone.

A Course in Miracles (Course in Miracles) - book cover picture

I think its funny that people are calling this a book, as otherbooks for sale ... . The course is not a book, its the way home. If it doesn't make sense to you that's because your not ready to hear the message it offers. Don't confuse the course with Marianne Williamson or any other author that is a student of the course. It is not the same. Those books may help you find temporary relief, the course will give you permenant peace. Remember, the message of the course is very threatening to the thought system we all live with. Give it time, it will change your life for ever!

The Pillars of the Earth - book cover picture

An amazing departure from your other works, (not that I did'nt like them), this is your most amazing achievement so far. You take us to the edge of what was known as civilized England and show us just how barbaric the times were. Your depiction of the cruelities and joys of life in those times are just short of masterful. Thank you for the thouroughly enjoyable read and keep up the splendid work that you always do.

How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food - book cover picture

There simply aren't enough words to describe how good 'How to Eat' is. Possibly the best cookery book ever written, for fans of Lawson and newcomers alike, it provides a comprehensive and guide to everything you could ever hope to make in your kitchen - for experienced cooks and complete beginners, goldfish and llamas... Without being bossy in the Delia Smith sense, her recipies are detailed yet leave room for improvisation - and the introductory paragraphs to each chapter should be read for literary merit alone. Without meaning to sound too corny, you'll never need to buy another cookery book.

The best book I had -- and I had them all!

Book title: Pregnancy and Childbirth
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Pregnancy and Childbirth - book cover picture

I loved this book. It was full of lots of detailed information, much more detailed than other books of similar subject. It has an excellent section that tracks the development of the fetus so the mother-to-be can follow along, and in the early weeks of pregnancy, it even breaks it down day by day in some cases! I had at least a dozen books that I read cover to cover, but this is the one I kept going back to, because it was the one that consistently had the information I needed. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who is really "into" their pregnancy experience!

The Big Nowhere - book cover picture

I read this book originally in the '80s after reading Ellroy's "Blood on the Moon" (part of the late and unlamented Sgt. Lloyd Hopkins series). I have reread it again resently and reminded myself why TBN put a hook in me for Ellroy's work. Rich of prose and complex of plot this book describes a series of interwoven lives that are one by one destroyed by deeply concealed secrets and past actions. At the end of the novel the dense plot simply falls in on itself. Isn't that the way good noir is supposed to be ?

The best I found.

The Living Trust : The Failproof Way to Pass Along Your Estate to Your Heirs - book cover picture

It is not for writing your own trust, but it was by far the best for the legal information, explanations and especially case scenarios. After reading 3-4 other books, I found this to have the clearest presentation of a complex subject; but of even greater value--it gave common (but unknown to me and not mentioned in other books) alternatives for dealing with problem personal situations like irresponsible children or family. Ex: dividing estate into three dispursements given out at five year intervals to give heirs a chance to "blow it" and then grow up. Because of this book alone, I was able to make decisions I was finally comfortable with.
