Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C++ (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

This book takes on quite an academic approach, yes. And it leaves some parts as "an excercice for the reader". But it's thorough, and explains everything well. It deals with a difficult subject; it's stupid to think there would be an "easier" way of teaching this - no pain no gain. If you do _want_ to learn about data structures and algorithm analysis, it's an excellent book

Influence: Science and Practice (4th Edition) - book cover picture

Robert Cialdini discusses six ways of influencing people - reciprocation, commitment, social power, authority, contrast, and scarcity. The principles are easy to understand and are intuitive. Due to the complexities of modern life, we have built "short-cut" reactions to these influences. Most of the time, these short-cuts are fine; however, folks can sometimes create events that "trigger" your short-cuts and may be able to unduely influence you. Robert discusses the theory of these principles, practical situations where these principles are often unscruplously applied, mechanisms to better become aware of these influences, and ways to counter them. You will gain better insights into your past behavior when you fell for sucker deals. Hopefully, reading this book will help you avoid / reduce future bad deals.

Geek Love - book cover picture

I just started working in a bookstore and I needed to select a few "staff picks." This book was one of the first to come to mind. It's a wonderfully surrealistic exploration into places and emotions most readers would rather not examine. It's not an easy novel to read, but one where I feel that the reader has "grown" a little after finishing it. After I read the previous review I felt that I had to add my two cents worth and try to get those ratings back up there.

John Irving's first and best.

Setting Free the Bears - book cover picture

I've read at least five other Irving books including Garp and none left me as satisfied. The stories were cleverly interwoven and like so many Irving stories included traumatic turns that where you least expect them. Siggy's life could only be fully realized by the grandest of schemes and it plays out in beautiful chaos. I liked all the stories in this book. I only wish that Irving would doctor this one into a screen play and let some cool young director go nuts with it.

My Review

Book title: Shade's Children
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Shade's Children - book cover picture

Shades Children was an awesome book, full of action. Every page has a new adventure awaiting, and a new surprise. I love this book because its given a look into what the future could be like, most likely not, but its cool to hear someone elses point of view of the future. I definetly recomend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and stuff. And also if anyone has read either Lirael or Sabriel, youll wanna read Shade's Children too. Its better then any of the books that Garth Nix has ever written.

A noteworthy contribution to contemporary scholarship

Cassian the Monk (Oxford Studies in Historical Theology) - book cover picture

Stewart's study of the spiritual and theological writings of St John Cassian attempts to provide for students and monastics alike a framework for appreciating Cassian's significance -- and it succeeds brilliantly in doing so. Stewart's presentation is noteworthy, inter alia, for his revision of traditional categories too often (mis)applied to Cassian's theology. Thus, his consideration of the "Semi-Pelagian" Conference XIII takes up the dissatisfaction expressed by R A Markus in his End of Ancient Christianity, who called for a reading of Cassian's theology of grace in situ, rather than through the prism of Prosper's hardline Augustinian critique. Stewart does so with the great clarity and succinctness characteristic of the work as a whole. His style is highly approachable, even fluid, and his notes (which run to a length roughly equal to that of the text itself) are remarkably thorough. This study will be highly valued by scholars and enthusiasts alike.

Another outstanding Nolan accounting

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
OPERATION BUFFALO - book cover picture

I just finished the book, and now I'm re-reading it. Nolan does his usual outstanding job describing Operation Buffalo. However, I was again saddened by the terrible casualties the Marines suffered fighting a restricted war of interdiction and attrition. Once again was driven home to me the point that brave men were dying fighting a war that was unwinable given how the politicians mandated it be fought. To me that's the real tragedy of Vietnam. Men put in harm's way should be better served.

Deep Rivers - book cover picture

This is a gem of a book. While there are many things to like about it, I am most enamoured of the richness of detail in its naturalistic description. Arguedas, with his Indian upbringing, has a perceptiveness toward nature not often found in modern, Western society. The translation conveys this beautifully, though I've heard that the original Spanish is even more vivid in its descriptions. The characterization is multi-layered: there's even someone highly reminiscent of the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoyevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov"...
