An Introduction to Buddhist Ethics : Foundations, Values and Issues (Introduction to Religion) - book cover picture

This is an easy to understand account of the basis and content of ethical teachings in Buddhism as a global tradition.Starting with the foundations of Buddhist ethics, Harvey then describes the major precepts in turn as they apply to ordinary practitioners.He then looks at the implications of these ethics from the social and historical context in many countries from Sri Lanka to Japan. He gives special treatment to topics like Enviromentalism, Feminist issues, Economics and Homosexuality in a Buddhist context and gives an overview of many accounts expressed on these topics. The treatment is sometimes academic, always balanced and frequently too objective.It is an important book for people who are interested in Natural Justice and the role of Human Rights vs Human Responsibilities in the context of human legal codes and religion. It is also a must for anyone who wants to know the difference between right and wrong and why from a non Theistic position.

Four to Score (A Stephanie Plum Novel) - book cover picture

I had a cornea transplant in Spetember. My sister gave me all four books to read while I was recuperating. I had had a transplant before, and didn't think I'd be able to read too much. Well, the night I came home from the hospital, I began "One for the Money", and couldn't put it down. I read all four books in two & a half days!! I need more recouperation from staying up to read the books, than I did from my surgery!! The series is awesome, and I cannot wait until "High Five" comes out. Joe is sexy, and charming, while Stephanie cracks me up with the wild prediciments she gets herself into!! I'm waiting for the movies!

The Bluest Eye - book cover picture

If you don't want to look in the mirror and REALLY see yourself (black, white or other), don't read this book. If you would prefer to live in a comfortable cocoon of ignorance about other people's lives, don't read this book. If you like using words like "literature" and "art" so long as they refer to things written so long past that you don't have to deal with any of their painful significance right now, don't read this book. BUT, if you want to understand your whole self, especially relative to other people unlike yourself; if you want to learn, and you understand that there is no learning without pain; if you're not afraid, then read... this... book.

A Wonderful Tale

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister - book cover picture

Every now and then, you stumble upon a book that catches your mind and spellbinds you for days after the book is closed. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is like that. Every person in the book could almost be your next door neighbor. Maguire has drawn in words with a talent not often seen.
After reading it myself, I begged my mother to read it. Often, she will read a book I recommend but it's more for me than for her. However, this time she has become so entranced that during any free moment she will pick it up.
I really recommend this book. It is very clean (though not suitable to children or many young teens - highschoolers would be fine - due to heavy material). For those of you whom this offends, I will warn you there are a few curse words here and there, but they are not many nor too bad. Other than that, this is a great, clean book to read. There's a lot to learn from it about yourself, people around you, and just society in general.Kara

A very good Algorithms book


Book title: Introduction to Algorithms
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Introduction to Algorithms - book cover picture

I've bought this book for my Data Structure Class - and comparing to other books of the same kind - I must say that I haven't seen any other so complete and easy to understand than this. I like the pseudocode, because it makes the theory more general - algorithms and data structure are not specific from a language like Pascal, C or Java. There are few exercises, but they really stimulate our creativity, making us think beyond the borders.

The best thing about the book is that it presents all the mathematical background required for the proofs and for understanding the theory.The part about B Trees and Graphs are really good.

Ben-Hur (Oxford World's Classics) - book cover picture

The story of Judah Ben Hur is a story that will ring through the ages. There are few stories that can match the inspiration one can gain from this novel. It is more than just a story of a Jew and a Roman, it is a story of the how only tangential interaction with the Christ completely changes the life of Judah. While some of the vivid imagery has faded with the changes in the English language over the years, with a dictionary nearby a person should be able to envision the scenes with no trouble. Wallace is very descriptive, at times too descriptive as the story gets delayed a few pages so he can describe a villa or Judah and Messala.

Good, but GET THE VIDEOS INSTEAD


Book title: The Complete 'Fawlty Towers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Complete 'Fawlty Towers - book cover picture

In some ways I prefer reading the scripts to Monty Python's Flying Circus over watching the original TV series (e.g., your imagination does not have the severe budget limits of the show). But reading the scripts to Fawlty Towers, while a fun experience in itself, is not as good as watching the show. The show did have as good of a set as it needed, and the script loses something without getting to see the wonderful physical comedy of the Basil Fawlty and Manuel characters. I don't honestly know if I would find the book as funny without picturing John Cleese's expressions from various episodes from memory. As a result, while I give the book 5 stars for its side-splitting humour, I would still recommend getting the videos instead.

An illuminating framework for understanding competition


Book title: Marketing Warfare
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Marketing Warfare - book cover picture

I'm an engineer by training. The authors conveyed their marketing concepts in easy-to-understand terms thru analogy with warfare. I tried to apply their framework to Intel vs. AMD and Amazon.com vs. E-bay. I believe I have acquired some understanding of why the marketing folks at Intel and Amazon.com are doing what they are doing. Enough knowledge to have made me dangerous :-) Would have been nice if authors had included a few chapters on cases where the analogy of marketing with warfare breaks down.
