Selected Essays (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

For anyone who enjoys beautiful prose with intellectually stimulating ideas and thoughts--this book is a "MUST-HAVE" for your library collection! These classic and quotable essays are enlighting and refreshing! If you (like I do) reject the Transcendentalist doctrine and theology, you may find yourself dismissing a couple of the essays as too tasking ideologically as they are at times on the fringe of transcendental ideology. Emerson's use of the English language, however, is a breath of fresh air in this era where the common vernacular is characterized by the grotesque abuses of ebonics, profanity, and laziness. It would be incredibly wonderful if all Americans would return to the most eloquent and beautiful use of our language as Emerson does.

One of the best books


Book title: Buddhism Plain and Simple
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Buddhism Plain and Simple - book cover picture

This book cuts to the chase. Its not page after page of fluff and abstract as many Buddist books are. This book goes straight to the heart of what the Buddha taught and not all the "extras" that have been tacked on by various sects. Mr. Hagen has an excellent straight forward writing style and he doesnt complicate the teachings. I have read over 30 books on Buddism and this book is light years ahead of the rest. For those who need a lot of airy-fairy gobbly gook type stuff, this is not your book. For those who take being AWAKE seriously..you wont find a better guide.

Prostate Cancer: Overcoming Denial With Action : A Guide to Screening, Treatment, and Healing (Quality Medical Home Health Library) - book cover picture

My good friend, Allen Salowe, survived prostate cancer and cared enough about others not having to endure what he went through that he took the time to write this excellent overview of a deadly disease and its early detection and treatment. Allen writes in an interesting, easy-to-read, no-nonsense style, so any male over the age of 40 should invest a few hours in learning how to increase his odds against potential death resulting from prostate cancer. Because of Allen's experience and his book, I now have an annual DRE and PSA test. (If you want to know what these are, read the book!) -Bill King

The secret is out: Money grows, but not on trees!

The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need (Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need) - book cover picture

Andrew Tobias presents a valid introduction to investing in this book, much of which I am fortunate to have learned from my parents. He has helped me to clarify many of their investing actions. The mechanisms for "growing money" have worked for my parents; now, they are now working for me. Money may not grow on trees but, with the thoughtful investing practices discussed, it does grow. Thanks, Andy, for confirming many of my investment philosophies. Although if people start living "by the book", I may not be able to keep ahead of the game.

Very readable and entertaining


Book title: Attila's Treasure
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Attila's Treasure - book cover picture

This is better than Rhinegold. Grundy does better when dealing with a shorter time span (several years). Hagan's bisexual feelings for Saganova and Waldhari are portrayed sensitively; as a bisexual myself, I appreciated this. Also, his wariness of Attila and loyalty to the Gebicung house are very understandable. Grundy clearly shows how Hagan got shafted; he was sent as a hostage to Attila to keep the peace, yet was recalled to marry a Christian woman and was not allowed to take the official place of the Sinwist (high priest) as he requested. Grundy shows the conflicts between the Romans and the tribes, between the Christians and pagans. He sensitively treats the love between Hildegund and Waldhari. I highly recommend this book.

This recording is the best BOT ever!

Three Men in a Boat (Oxford Bookworms) - book cover picture

I have listened to hundreds of books on tape. None has ever provided the pleasure this one was. Three Men in a Boat is an amazing book, oh yes. As the reviewers say...brilliant, scathing, funny, clever and a permanent fixture in the mind after one reading. Years later you'll remember the cheese in the train or the vanishing friend in the field or the way Uncle Podger hangs a picture. And I cannot imagine a smile won't come to your lips when you've done so.

But Ian Carmichael clearly inhabits this book, making each voice come alive, offering an absolutely spellbinding reading. He is serious, pompous, twee, giggly, ponderous, ironic and hysterical when needed. No review can do it justice....you must hear him read the story of the mounted trout or the glass of water to know just what a great actor can do with wonderful prose. Listen. Listen again. And again. You won't be able to restrain yourself.

A must-have book on comets


Book title: Great Comets
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Great Comets - book cover picture

All comets are great, but some are greater than others, as are book about comets, and this is one of those. If you've ever seen any of the celebrated comets of the past -- Ikeya-Seki, West, or Hale-Bopp -- or if you hope to someday, I sincerely recommend Great Comets. It's a great (there's that word again) resource that serves not only to remind us of why we find comets visually compelling, but how important they are in helping astronomers understand the evolution of the solar system and the role they may have played in Earth's life origins. It also features some great (oops!) beautiful comet photos. An excellent reference, too, on upcoming comet missions. Bravo!

The 13th Valley - book cover picture

If you want to be picked up and dropped in the jungles of Vietnam in the middle of a major operation, then read this book. It was one of the best Vietnam War books I have ever read. Written with both detail and compassion for all involved, it is a brilliant portrayal of the soldiers who fought in the "boonies" during that horrible war. Unlike many Vietnam novels that concentrate heavily on the psychological effects of fighting an invisible enemy, this novel is also about the military aspects of the war, and makes the often-overlooked point that our military had some brilliant successes brought about by the heroic actions of the thousands of valiant soldiers who fought the battles. I highly recommend this dramatic and finely written novel.

Most Practical Management Book I have ever read

Binding: Paperback
Executive E. Q. - book cover picture

Robert Cooper's book is heads above all the other enmotional intelligence books on the market. The others empahasize to much theory. This author is heavy on practical proven approaches that are based on people be authentic with one another and working together. Granted this book may not be for those who don't have the guts to push themelves to grow to heights not even mentioned in typical management theories. Honesty, putting the customer first, being genuinine, etc... have all but become extinct today. Robert Cooper's book issue's a challenge to all of us. To be the best means competing against your own standards so you can best serve your customers first and making a profit helps you do that better. Bravo Dr. Cooper.

Dark Tide II: Ruin (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 3) - book cover picture

This book was truly awesome! I loved it! The empire finally gets involved in the battle with the Yuzhan Vong. It's about time! One of my only complaints is there is no Han. But at least looking at Heroes Trial, synopsis (the new book in new jedi order series) it looks like Han has finally got over his depression and is one of the main characters again. Yessss! (Han is one of my favorites) This book comes down to one brutal battle to save Ithor. It is great! Ruin really sets up a lot of the story line for the New Jedi Order series. I would recommend this book today!
