Ringer's Best

Book title: Million Dollar Habits
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Million Dollar Habits - book cover picture

I love all of Ringer's books, but this is his best. Much of his previous books were an offshoot of Ayn Rand's objectivist ethics, an attractive, but not always viable worldview. Ringer seemed to have written this book as an addendum to his previous works, when he was a hard-core Ayn Rand disciple. In Million Dollar Habits, he admits that Ayn Rand is great stuff- for people who live on a planet of Howard Roarks and Dagney Taggerts. Million Dollar Habits isn't for people who live on that planet- it's for the people of planet earth! In this book, he takes a more flexible, positive world view. The advice here is much more practical a real-world. Those who found Ringer's previous works good but impracticle should read this.

Bohjalian Touches the Midwife's Heart

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

As a retired certified nurse-midwife and a published writer, I was prepared NOT to like the premise of this novel. Wow! I was blown away with the author's insight into the heart of a midwife. Having lost my own career due to illness, I know the pain of having to leave a calling that to me and other midwives is almost holy. I cried with Sibyl Danforth. Bravo, Mr. Bohjalian! Three things I can recommend to any reader: 1) an engaging plot, 2) real, three-dimensional characters, and 3) brilliant use of the daughter's voice to tell the story.Also recommended: "The Midwife's Song" by Brenda Ray

Without a doubt this book flowed easily and couldn't put it down. I haven't read Durable Goods and this is the first book by this author for this reviewer but I can guarantee it won't be the last.

I got swept in from the very beginning. It made me feel as if she had crept into my mind and retold my thoughts. We can all say hey that's sounds like me when I was young, at some point or another in this book. I read this book in a short short sitting and am sad it is over. On to the library to get Durable Goods!

OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET (Space Trilogy (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Do not read this book if you are simply looking for something to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon; it is not that kind of book. It is the kind of book that forces the mind to perform all sorts of mental gymnastics that are not at all easy at the time but, afterwards, show themselves to be the way through the keyhole of a locked door to a world that could hitherto scarcely be imagined. A wonderful, wonderful book

Maybe The Moon- Maybe the best.....

Maybe the Moon : A Novel - book cover picture

I agree with the previous reviewer, this is tight, funny, wicked writing, with a wonderful current of pathos and honesty. All the characters feel honest and real.
Even with out all that, a major reason worth reading this book for is the "added" LAST chapter- a wonderful 'Take That!' to Hollywood. After all the 'trials and tribulations' Mr. Maupin went through getting Tales of the City (GREAT book!)made- make this chapter even more delicious and well, hysterical...

and for all you Tales fans, one secondary (Ned) character from Tales makes an appearance briefly-

Enjoy Maybe the Moon!

Thought it was going to be something else

Book title: Fall on Your Knees
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Fall on Your Knees - book cover picture

I don't know why, but I thought this was set in the southern United States. Probably the reason for this was that many of Oprah's picks are. I was expecting something along the lines of A LESSON BEFORE DYING or THE BARK OF THE DOGWOOD. At any rate, I was pleasantly surprised to find this was set in Nova Scotia and is basically the story of five generations. I was reminded of THE SHIPPING NEWS in some ways, but after MacDonald pulled me into the novel, all similarities ended there.The story is basically about four sisters. All are ambitious yet have strong family ties. Parts of the novel are VERY funny and parts are extremely dark. VERY dark. But there's redemption at the end and overall I have to highly recommend this one.Also recommended: THE BARK OF THE DOGWOOD--A Tour of Southern Homes and Gardens--Hysterical and harrowing. The most shocking book I've read to date.

The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

This book is Julia Quinn at her best. Not only can she write a story that has both humor and wit but she can create a touching scene in just a few words. Pulling on your heartstrings in one paragraph and then making you cry with laughter in another! The friendship between Simon and Daphne was wonderful to read and the attraction from the word go was exciting to watch explode. I also think I know who the mysterious Author is but I don't want to spoil it for anyone! I can't wait to read Anthony's story ... it is sure to be a fabulous read!If you enjoyed this book keep your eyes peeled for Julia Quinn's earlier books Splendid, Dancing At Midnight (which are soon to be re-released) and Minx! Each book is funnier than the next! Julia Quinn is priceless and perfection all rolled into one!

Feeling Good : The New Mood Therapy - book cover picture

It's important to mention that this is the one and only self-help book that has empirical support. It works; it's been proven! If you have mild to moderate depression, this book is likely to be tremendously helpful to you. If you have severe depression, this book is a great addition to therapy (Burns provides a checklist to assess your level of depression).

I'm a psychology student who has been depressed on and off throughout my life. I used the techniques in this book, and my depression completely lifted in a few weeks. It's not magic though. The techniques are very concrete. This book will help you identify and change the negative patterns of thought that keep you depressed, and keep your self-esteem down. As a psych major, I can tell you this book is a great example of the cognitive-behavioral school of therapy.

Do yourself a favor and read this book! It's a great option for those who are not completely open to therapy (or who can't afford it).

Excellent book for PostgreSQL developers

SQL Queries for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Data Manipulation in SQL - book cover picture

I was quite new to SQL but had done some reading on data modelling when I got this book about 18 months ago. I initially read parts of the book and have mostly used is as a reference reading relevant material for solving the problem at hand. The text is well written and so far I have always found clear understandable explanations of whatever I need to known. The index as well as the SQL syntax diagrams in the appendix are excellent.I am working with PostgreSQL and the best thing about this book is that so far every example and SQL construct I have learned from the book has worked well with PostgreSQL. (So - five stars to PostgreSQL too :)
