Red Sky at Morning : A Novel (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

After reading this book I was struck by the way the author creates an image of the life of an adolescent. The book reveals the life of a teenage boy named Josh whose dad is in the Navy during WWII. He and his mother go to live at the family's summer home in Sagrado, New Mexico. Josh is faced with going to a new school and not knowing anyone in town. Josh makes many friends and faces many problems through out the book. The book is full of humor. The book is forceful and every few pages an event happened that made me want to read on. This is the sort of book you can enjoy and be interested in all the way through.

How to Be Invisible : A Step-By-Step Guide To Protecting Your Assets, Your Identity, And Your Life - book cover picture

I used to keep an overseas bank account but I learned it is far more private to keep one's cash INSIDE the U.S. Also, the idea that my name should never be connected with where I live, not on one single document, was an eye-opener. At first it seemed impossible but the author shows simple ways to follow this advice on everything from bank accounts and credit cards to drivers' licenses and income tax returns. I have thirty-two books on privacy and asset protection but Luna's book has more practical information that all the others put together. He deals in facts not theory. My only complaint is that the book could have been longer. I would have liked to read more anecdotes about the author's various clients and how they solved their problems.

A Visitation of Spirits : A Novel (Vintage Contemporaries) - book cover picture

"A Visitation of Spirits" is a portrait of Horace Cross, an adolscent both black and gay. This is an angry, often confrontational, novel dealing with the psychological ramifications wrought by religious condemnation, gross hypocrisy and clergy that myopically perverts scripture by preaching hate and intolerance.The story is communicated through a series of recollections. Reality and memory coalesce in a nightmarish, drug-induced psychosis. "A Visitation of Spirits" is a haunting novel of a young gay man wrestling with his demons. His struggles are universal; his solution is, unfortunately, both tragic and final. This is a work of incredible depth,passion and understanding.Randall Kenen, who won a Lambda Award for his short story collection "Let the Dead Bury Thier Dead," is an enormously talented prose stylist. He brings together the best qualities of James Baldwin, Carson McCullers, Toni Morrison and Flannery O'Connor. Higher praise could not be offered.

Ida B. Wells : Mother of the Civil Rights Movement - book cover picture

It is a travesty that the name of Ida B. Wells-Barnett is not more widely known in the most common lists of American heroes. This great woman, though little in stature, was a giant in the fight for justice and racial equality in this country. This book was a very thorough look at the life of an early champion of the civil rights movement in America. After my chilren an I read about her being physically thrown off a railcar, sueing the railroad company and actually winning her lawsuit, we could not put the book down. Although many of the discriptions and photographs were gruesome, they offered a realistic and brutally honest look at the horrors of lynching. I would recommend this book for sixth grade and up.

Zipper: An Exploration in Novelty - book cover picture

The above reviewer (atlanta) does the book a disservice. Zipper is a wonderful read, from top to bottom,a nd I have even re-read the book. I don't usually re-read anything! In fact, I gave a copy to a business colleague since it is exactly such an interesting confluence of industrial and business history!Buy the book. It's highly enjoyable reading. Not technical, not threatening, but a wonderful romp through the difficulties and challenges of building the common everyday object, the Zipper. Esp3ecially noteworth is the author's research into the zipper's international marketing and the zipper's socio-cultural impacts.

The Hours : A Novel - book cover picture

Okay, I gave it five stars, now I'm going to blast it. This is a well written book, an enjoyable read. It's a pity it won a Pulitzer though, because it can't live up to that honor.Imagine a Hollywood Producer handing a talented screenwriter a copy of Mrs Dalloway and saying, "Here, write an updated version of this that audiences can relate to," and you've got The Hours. It's not just an homage to Virginia Woolf, it's a rewrite. But a good one.

Highlanders : A Journey to the Caucasus in Quest of Memory - book cover picture

First Im 'sorry for my bad English. It's not my native language.When we travelled with Yo'av through Caucasus I thought the future book will be the collection of stories in style "Foreigner in Caucasus". And my Russian and Caucasian friends told me: "Be serious, Alex. Your American-Israely journalist is not able to understand us!" But now... I've never read such a kind and clever book on this theme neither in English nor in Russian. Yo'av have seen such points and details, which can make honour to best experts in region. Thank you, Yo'av. Thank for the beautiful book, for your friendship and for I feel no shame telling that I rendered you a little piece of help.

You need this book if you intend to breastfeed

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback

I'm very critical when it comes to books on breastfeeding. I only feel comfortable recommending books that are packed with useful information and written in a supportive and encouraging style. This book is definitely the best of the bunch, offering terrific tips on getting started during the early weeks, preventing and solving nursing problems, nursing after your return to work, and many other equally important subjects. I highly recommend this book to all the expectant couples who sign up for my workshops!

From Aaron to Zoe : 15,000 Great Baby Names - book cover picture

As a writer constantly in search of unusual names, I have thumbed the
pages of more baby name books than I want to think about. Until recently, my
only real help came from a book that was printed in 1967. Now that poor,
bedraggled thing can sit serenly on the shelf while this one gets the workout.

_From Aaron to Zoe_ has not only the most varied listing of names I've ever
seen in a modern book, but the finest presentation as well. The 15,000 names
are listed by language/ethnicity; popularity (broken down by decade); general
meanings; occupations and, finally, the traditional listings that include current
and original language or ethnicity, meanings, namesakes, current popularity,
nicknames and alternative spellings. Whatever my need, this book meets it.
