Reminds us that math can be FUN

Symbolic Logic and the Game of Logic - book cover picture

Math is fun, but the rhetoric of most 'taught' (probably an overstatement) math (and, by extension, logic) is so incredibly dry that the forest is rarely seen for the bark on the trees. But here Carroll, with tongue lodged firmly in cheek, turns the rhetoric (and by extension, the way we think about math problems) on its ear, and the result is an often incredibly funny approach to math and logic problems which stays with you and ultimately worms its way into your quotidian. I'll also say that, as an atrociously poor student in high school, this book allowed me to ace the SATs, and then ten years later the GREs.

Jade Island (Donovan) - book cover picture

This is the second in the series of the Donovon brothers and I found it very good! This one is about Kyle and Archer this time and how they are trying to figure out why jade is mysteriously missing from the Tang Family Vault. The illegitimate daughter of one of the Tang brothers Lianne is caught in the middle by being blamed for stealing the Jade. Kyle is told he has to befriend Lianne to try and find out if she was the one or not who did steal it and in the meantime he ends up falling in love with her and lets his emotions sometimes put him off track of what he is really supposed to be doing. While in the meantime Lianne's father Johhny is also telling her she has to befriend Kyle immediatly but will not explain to her the reason why he wants this. The way they mix romance and suspense it great! I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read pearl Cove next.

DIAMOND AGE, THE (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

Stephenson has wrought something new for the twenty-first century.Comparisons to William Gibson are hardly apt. Since "Neuromancer" Gibson has grown into something of a prose stylist, emphasizing sly characterization rather more than technological prophecy.Stephenson has emerged as the idea man of the modern science fiction. One greets "The Diamond Age" with something of the amazement that must have greeted "Foundation" or "Stranger in a Strange Land" (or even "The World of Null-A"). Should Stephenson continue to write science fiction, then he could become the pre-eminent figure in the field.

Awesome James Patterson makes me want to write


Book title: Four Blind Mice
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Four Blind Mice - book cover picture

I love this guy. I just started reading his books I am a huge Mary Higgins Clark fan so was a twist for me. I grew up in Fayetteville NC, my father is retired Army and my Mom worked at the Hospital across the street from the hotel where Dr Cross and Sampson stayed. When I started reading I could see my home town. I actually felt like i was in on this investigation with them. To me that is what a book should do for you. You can take on the persona of the characters, you want to get those bad guys as much as they do. Each one of his books ties his storys together you learn about the characters. You can actually relate to some ot the things they go through. I stongly reccomend this book to anyone who enjoys reading sheer imagination and excitability that you expect from any mystery writer.

The Mummy or Ramses the Damned (Anne Rice) - book cover picture

Egypt and Anne Rice. Great combo. She has done it again with Ramses and company. The characters breath life like people from another time period and caught up in extrodinary circumstances. There are truly some great suspenseful moments, especially the opening. I enjoyed the romanticism between Ramses and Julie (will they, or won't they?). I have to admit enjoying THE MUMMY as much as INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE. It is a must for Rice fans.

Dream, Believe, Dare, Do!!


Book title: The Disney Way
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Disney Way - book cover picture

Those four simple words are at the root of the Disney business philosophy, established by Walt himself and carried on by Michael Eisner. I found this book to be both entertaining and informative. The business principles outlined by Capodagli and Jackson seem like simple, common sense - but bear repeating numerous times until more businesses adopt them. Principles like encouraging innovation and even failure, since you learn how *not* to do something...building on the strengths of your employees (development plans instead of demeaning performance appraisals) ... all will make any business work better. I found numerous ideas here that I will be applying in my workplace as well as to my personal life. This is a must-read for any manager who wants to motivate his or her team to really excel - and for any employee who wants to be his or her personal best.

Not for the casual Cornwell reader


Book title: The Last Precinct (Kay Scarpetta)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Last Precinct (Kay Scarpetta) - book cover picture

This book is for anyone who has followed the Kay Scarpetta saga from the start. Its highly introspective and dark approach may be too boring or tedious for the casual reader. But for the diehard fans, it is a fascinating read that ties up a lot of loose ends and gives greater insight into Scarpetta's mind.I can't wait to see where the Doc goes from here. New York? I loved the Jaime Berger character. I hope she shows up again.P.S. Definitely read "Point of Origin" and "Black Notice" first since this story is really the finale of these two stories.

No Better Place to Die: The Battle of Stones River (Civil War Trilogy) - book cover picture

If you prefer fast food over meal which requires you
to sit down and relax, then you probably won't care for
this book. If you love detail, then this is the book for
you. The book is about a significant civil war battle that never got the attention it deserved. By the way, I just came from Stones River Battlefield, and if you should ever find yourself in Nashville, TN, I highly recommend visitiing this historic battlefield. It's managed by the U.S. Park Service, and they do a superb job with the visitors. It's located about 45 minutes south of Nashville by car. A visit there will give you a very good
feel for this key battle of the U.S. Civil War.

This is the one book about wicca you must read


Book title: The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft

The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft - book cover picture

....if you are truely interested in witchcraft. It tears apart the myths of wicca. This book is not for those who want to bask in a romantic vision of coven witchcraft nor for those who would have it that solitairy witches are the true inheritors of age old pagan practices. What it does leave intact is a history about humans who tried to break free from religious and social doctrine. Humans that created an inspired practice of modern pagan philosophy and practice. It is also a study into the dynamics of religious emancipation with all it's - apparently unavoidable - hiccups. I loved this book. It's managed to combine a critical look at the faulty wiccan construction of it's own history with a respectful and sympathetic handling of wiccan spirituality.

This has to be one of the funniest books I have read.


Book title: The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love - book cover picture

I cannot believe the bad reviews from Mississippi (Jackson). These have to be women who could not even make the "wannabee's list". I hope every one disregards their comments and reads the book because it is the basic fundamental rules and ways of women, and I mean women, rich, poor, fat, skinny or be whatever. My daughter bought it and she should get a commission for all of the men and women who I have told about this book. You have to laugh and enjoy if you are human because almost every chapter is something you have either done or would, given the opportunity. I will be 62 and still do some of the things, and almost bought the stilleto heels and teddy, but decided my husband's heart couldn't take it and besides will wait until I reach Medicare age, and let them pick up the orthopedic bill.
