Means of Ascent (The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Volume 2) - book cover picture

I admit that unlike many of the reviewers that I'm not an avid reader. I go through phases. I have been enthralled by the series of biographies by Robert A. Caro. I have lived, travelled and working in and around many of the areas that are part of these books. "Means of Ascent" is a very apt title for this particular volume. LBJ's drive to achieve his goal, regardless of the means. Being a Texan I have grown up with stories, and ancedotes about LBJ. Some called him a crook, etc. If you remove your biases and see LBJ for who he is, where he came from, and where his ambitions led. You can clearly see the driving forces that propelled him to the devices he used. I look forward to additional works by Mr. Caro. He has taken the biography away from a dry chronilogical glimpse into the life a person and transformed it into a moving portrait of the life, times, and people that shaped and were instrumental in that life.

Exotic setting for a beautiful novel.

Book title: Memoirs of a Geisha
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Memoirs of a Geisha - book cover picture

With his obvious expertise in the subject, Mr. Golden will immerse you in the exotic society of the Geisha. Against this backdrop the author draws you into the heroines struggle first for bare survival, then for her place in this circle and her self image and finally for fulfillment and success. The prose matches the mood of the subject and the pace is just slow enough to dwell on the details that fill the images with color, scent and sound. If there is one minor annoyance, it is Sayuri's infatuation with the chairman. It is barely motivated and not supported by any deeper analysis of his character. The ending too seems a bit abrupt and unrefined in comparison to the rest of the novel. Nevertheless, this book is enchanting and a promising debut for the author.

The Inner Sanctum is a excellent book.

Book title: The Inner Sanctum

The Inner Sanctum - book cover picture

The Inner Sanctum was an excellent book. It was exciting right from the start. I couldn't put it down. You never could tell what was going to happen. I was difficult to determine who was good and who was bad. That made this book extremely interesting. It is better than The Vulture Fund and The Take Over. I reccommed that you read it. If you liked his other books you will enjoy this one. If you also read Verticle Run By Joseph R. Garber and liked that you will like this book. They have a lot of similarities. Any John Grisham fan would also like this book.

The Brethren (John Grishham) - book cover picture

The CIA is one of those 3 letter organizations that most of us don't know anything concrete about really. All we know is that it's part of the US government, well yeah, maybe, and it's there to help America. This book teaches you just how deep the CIA really is in day to day life while at the same time explaining some of the daily workings of scams and scammers in the US. When you want to think about this book think a mixture of The Manchurian Candidate and a Nigerian scam(which here is the Angola , gay men scam). Do you think the CIA is fair and peacefull?, do you think the Nigerians are the best scammers?, do you think anything is anything? You might just be wrong. Read this book and find out why. I did, and liked it. Look for my upcoming review of the Runaway Jury, next week. Feel free to look at my other reviews as well.

Welding with Children : Stories - book cover picture

This second collection of short stories from Tim Gautreaux is, perhaps, even better than the first. Of course, if you look inside the book and see who published the individual stories, it's obvious that they must be good; The New Yorker, Atlantic, and Esquire are not noted for publishing bad fiction. While these are fiction, the stories ring so true to life and the lives of the characters, that we can all see ourselves in someone in this collection. Most of Gautreaux's stories have a touch of humor, but all show the depth of character that draws readers into the stories.Anyone who reads these stories and enjoys them, should also read his novels. You'll find that same voice and an author you can trust, who will not betray your empathy for his characters.

Engineering Mechanics: Combined Statics and Dynamics (8th Edition) - book cover picture

This is an excellent book for Statics and Dynamics. The chapters have many examples that cover every concept that is in the chapter. On top of that, the problems are easy to understand and realistic, with most of the answers in the back except a select few. The problems were created using the material in the chapter, so it is useful to read the chapter, attempt the problem, and go back to the section and read it again, and you will 95% of the time understand.

It was a pleasure to read this book - twice!

Book title: The Gold Coast

Binding: Paperback
The Gold Coast - book cover picture

This is the first book I've read twice; first in 1993 and again this year. It is a masterfully-woven tale of hot-shot lawyer, very sexy wife, Mafia don neighbor, IRS pest all set amongst the riches of d'elite Long Islanders. The story is first-rate, always engrossing, and its characters are extremely well-developed. Above all, it is a story that will take you far away from your surroundings, no matter where you are reading it, because it is that good. DeMille has really put out a masterpiece here. Above all the attributes I've already listed, this book is FOYC(fall of your chair)funny. Oh, the wit and humor will have you hoping for more as you read on, and guess what? it's there! You will be continuously amused and pulled right into this tale of the rich folk. Oh what a great book. Read it now.

The Cow That Went OINK - book cover picture

My 3 year old son laughs hysterically every time we read this book (and we read it a lot!). The cow (who only says Oink) tries to teach the pig to say oink and the pig (who only can say Moo) tries to teach the cow to say Moo. The funny combinations of MOO and OINK just crack him up. (MOINK, MOOK, OIMOO, etc.) The other animals make fun of them, but they get the last laugh. We get such a kick out of how much he loves it.

In the Forests of the Night (Laurel Leaf Books) - book cover picture

I got this book for Christmas and finished it the same day! I could not put it down! in the beginning you may think "What is she talking about?", and if you are not in love with fantasy books as I am you probably won't like it as much as I did. But despite that fact after the first two chapters you most likely will not be able to stop reading it! The ideas about Vampires are very well thought out, I hardly beleived it was written by a girl of 13! This book is about a girl who is a Vampire but often you read about her past and how she came to be a vampire. The end has a nice twist to it. But I didn't want it to end.

Flowers & Silver Practice MCATs, 7th Edition (Flowers & Silver Practice Mcat) - book cover picture

I have recently received 5 interviews from top prestigious medical schools in the U.S.. I can thank this book as part of my success. The Flowers practice exams gives you a template of what to expect when you step up to the real deal. I cannot emphasize how much working out practicing exams under real time constraints can really prepare you for a high score on the mcat. I firmly believe that this book would prepare your journey on entering med school.
