Swimming to Antarctica : Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmer - book cover picture

I have read many books about extreme accomplishments and loved the excitement of the adventure, but cringed at the narcissism of the adventurer. Lynne Cox's book is full of first-rate thrills, but her character is just as remarkable. (In her first major swim from Catalina Island to the California shore, she waits for her fellow teenaged swimmers to catch up because they had agreed to finish together. How many elite athletes do you know who would sacrifice the opportunity to set a record because of a promise to friends?) Swimming to Antarctica is a fantastic read, as well as inspiring. I recommend it highly.

"One Hell of a Gamble": Khrushchev, Castro, and Kennedy, 1958-1964 - book cover picture

Naftali and Fursenko have done a fascinating job in this tremendously engrossing book about the prelude, climax, and aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis. A complete revelation of the personalites of the three players, Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro is compelling and informative. The reader will walk away with a new found appreciation for the back-channel diplomacy utilized at the height of the crisis, Overall, just a fine scholarly work, a must for all interested in international relations.

An Excellent Book From The Greatest President

Book title: My Life
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
My Life - book cover picture

This book was great. It's obvious many conservatives want to distract the true reviews of the book by giving in 1 star, but the fact is, if you even slightly liked Clinton, you will love this book. If you didn't like him, you may change your mind about him.I'm a liberal, and Clinton was over to the right a bit. I miss the 90's. A decade where it was okay to dissent. I remember having problems with Clinton's decision with Welfare Reform, etc. He explains all in this book and it's great... I truly admire his honesty and his will after all he has been through as a politician. He's too objective, trusting and honest for his own good. He's also one of the smartest presidents we have ever had.Anyway, get the book, it's worth every penny!

One of the best Apple Pro Training Series books so far...

Apple Pro Training Series : Motion (Apple Pro Training Series) - book cover picture

As both an instuctor and user of Motion, I can honestly say that this is one of the best Pro Training Series books out there. It is obvious that Damian took the time and cared about creating a book that would work well in both a self paced and classroom environment.

The book is well laid out and actually follows a real world type motion graphics project as it takes you through the app. It is well paced, easy to follow and flows very well. It also has a fair amount of humour that helps things move along.

An excellent book to learn the app and well worth the price of admission.

My hat goes off to Damian for doing a great job on this book.

Delightfully mysterious and romantic!

Book title: Rebecca

Rebecca - book cover picture

I first read "Rebecca" for a school assignment over the summer, but I have read it over several times since then. I could not help but fall in love with Maxim DeWinter, and as the novel progressed I became engrossed in the lives of everyone at Manderly. The book is intriguing and suspenseful to the very last page, and the secrets of Rebecca are shocking! Daphne DuMaurier writes with an ease that makes "Rebecca" pleasant to read. Although not on quite the same level as "Rebecca," the sequel "Mrs. DeWinter" provides a wonderful sense of closing to the story of Max and his young bride. Anyone who enjoyed this novel would also like the romantic drama, "The Thornbirds" by Colleen McCullough.

The Giver (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

One of my friends convinced me to read this book. It's a little hard to understand at first, but it's definetly worth reading. With Jonas I felt his frustrations, and after awile lonliness. I loved Asher, Fiona, the Giver, Rosemary, Lily, the Ceremonies, the perfect world that turned out to be you-know-what, and I loved how little things like jackets that button down the back symbolize things like interdependence. My dad and I think that at the end, Jonas finally found the room with the grandparents, family, and Christmas tree. Kudos, Cheers, and a HUGE THANK-YOU to my new-found favorite author, LOIS LOWRY!!! :) by Pam, 11

Theatre As Sign-System: A Semiotics of Text and Performance - book cover picture

what an amazing piece of work this turned out to be. Don't be fooled by the cover (la-de-da), as it looks fairly second rate, this is an invaluable text for any one just starting a theatre related course. It is succinct yet witty and goes into great depth about technique and history. More importantly however, i think this book is a revelation to everyday communication. Any one who finds themselves unable to compete in underlying meaning during conversation would learn a lot. Parents too, a great help!

Time to Hunt (audio CD) - book cover picture

I;m 13 years old. I've always wanted to be a Marine sniper. I've been reading similar authors like T. Clancy, J.R. Garber, and D. Brown, but this book is at the top of my list. It's the first I've read by Hunter and he's the best. Bob Lee is not one of those pretty boy action heros that always wins. He has his own share of personal problems. If you haven't read anything else, read the following: READ THIS BOOK!!

Sarum : The Novel of England - book cover picture

Like Michener, Rutherford brings life and history alive in this chronicle of one of England's most ancient cities. I am so impressed with his ability to weave history and fiction into an exciting account that teaches as well as entertains. This should be must reading for anyone who says they don't find history interesting. To follow a "family" through several thousand years is an outstanding accomplishment. His novel, LONDON, is just as engrossing.

Merrick (Vampire/Witches Chronicles) - book cover picture

Here it is...our long awaited hero has returned. Granted, he does not return until the very end of the novel, but never-the-less, I found the story to be refreshing, exciting and enjoyable. (Especially because Louis played such a major role throughout the book) People need not be so critical of Rice, I feel she has done a fine job of setting the stage for Lestat to once again resume his role as our dashing Prince of Darkness. Look for good things to come!
