The I Ching or Book of Changes : A Guide to Life's Turning Points - book cover picture

I'm sad I had to find this book at [a local store] before I saw it here! (This book didn't come up in my Amazon searches for "I Ching" when I searched the first time.)In any case, I first encountered this book at my local library while doing some general browsing. For someone who had not previously studied the I Ching before, it was easy, accessible, and devoid of any difficult esoteric philosophies to comb through while utilizing this absolutely valuable tool. If you are looking for a great, simple book to begin your education in the I Ching, I absolutely recommend this book. With this book and three cents, you have the keys to the wisdom of the universe!(An exageration, perhaps, but the book is THAT easy to grasp and use. At the same time, it's THAT profound. Use the I Ching's wisdom, or ignore it--at your peril.)

HIgh-tension action book, based on actual politics


Book title: Choosers of the Slain

Choosers of the Slain - book cover picture

This is a great action book using next-generation technology (already on the design boards), based on fact- Argentina, Chile AND the UK ALL claim the Antarctic Peninsula, surrounding islands and a pie-shaped wedge to the very pole. Even today, Chile and Argentina have research bases that are political statements, and military bases (e.g. Ushuaia and Puerto Williams,) ready to unleash on each other... and the Falklands are recent history. (I visited Chile, Argentina and Antarctica this year- the three nations still have very active claims.) - The action is good, and it's refreshing to have female leads who are competent as well. I only wish Cobb had paid more attention to details... they do distract a bit, therefore only a "nine". Nonetheless, I'm waiting for his next and hope it's out SOON!

You'll Never Look at the Stars the Same Again

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Crescent City Rhapsody - book cover picture

Crescent City Rhapsody absorbed me in a way no other novel has in recent history. Kathleen Ann Goonan has the gift for creating complex, interesting characters who people a richly developed plot that takes an intriguing, if terrifying look at the future. Far and away the best of the trilogy, and I liked the other books a lot, too. As a professional writer, I'm a tough customer, but I really loved this book.

Superb chivalric romance plus psychological depths

The Princess of Cleves: Contemporary Reactions, Criticism (Norton Critical Editions) - book cover picture

Princess de Cleves may on the surface seem like another court romance but the delicacy in which the writer portrays the feelings of her characters is extraordinary. There actually two levels to the story, on one level, it can just be read as a romance, and on the second level, it seems to be mocking the genre. The ending was incredible in that the reasons for the main character's final choice can be seen as both moral and life-defeating. It's hard to explains how without spoiling so please just go and read the book itself! It's short and extremely readible.

A thoughtful and inspiring book

Life and Death in Shanghai - book cover picture

My book club chose to read this book and I will admit that I groaned inwardly. As a good member of the club, I began my dreaded assignment. I was very surprised to find that I really enjoyed reading this story of a woman inprisoned during China's cultural revolution. Although the book is over 500 pages, I read it in just three days. Her strength of spirit and presence of mind even under the most daunting circumstances cannot help but be admired. Her story is extremely compelling and difficult to put down. Her portrayal of a dictatorial communist government and the effects on those under that rule is vividly expressed so that the reader understands what it might be like to actually live the experience. This books provokes the reader to look within and ask if faced with what Nien CHeng experienced, what am I made of? Highly recommend.

(Oxford) Atlas of the World

Atlas of the World (Atlas of the World, 7th ed) - book cover picture

In choosing a world atlas for my family, I looked at all that were available: from Oxford, National Geographic, Rand McNally, Hammond, DK, and other publishers. This new edition of the Oxford Atlas of the World is clearly the gold standard. Just published, it is of course the most up-to-date atlas available. More importantly, it is accurate and detailed, exquisitely produced (a joy to look at) and very readable. Unlike other atlases, for example, the maps do not run into the gutters. The introductory section containing informational maps and data (country population, income, products, languages, etc.) and stunning satellite photos is virtually a book in itself and worth the price of admission. And for all that one gets, the price is more than reasonable. This is more than a reference book--it's a good read. I highly recommend it.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

I started reading this book on Saturday and came in to work bleary-eyed on Monday because I just couldn't put it down---and I'm already anxious to get to number 5. The story is both engrossing and amusing. This book is more complex and suspenseful than the earlier ones; the author seems to trust that her child readers are maturing along with Harry and his friends. She introduces some entertaining new characters, such as the delightfully detestable Rita Skeeter and the wizard Mad-Eye, while continuing to develop Harry, Hermione, Ron, and the rest of the familiar cast. I consider these books to be the equivalent of the Oz series or the Chronicles of Narnia. I highly recommend this title not only to the children for whom it's written but to adults like me as well!

Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration - book cover picture

Venturing into topics where most books fear to tread, Essential Mac OS X Panther Server Administration is a must have for anyone who's using Mac OS X Server in their environment. With such a limited amount of books covering the platform, its reassuring to see such an in- depth guide through the various facets of the diverse server system. I highly recommend this book to anyone who uses this platform or is considering it in the future.
