The Black Echo (Detective Harry Bosch Mysteries) - book cover picture

Michael Connelly seems to be a modern and more down to earth re-incarnation of Agatha Christie. His plots are very well constructed, and he always manages to give the story a new twist, even after you think "that was it". And his characters are developped very realistically and each of them a psychological study in itself. They are all characters that could live next door. The action is never a cheap appeal to primitive instincts but a result of a breath-taking plot and credible characters. A great novel!

A Wonderful Guide To Health and Happiness

The Healing Path of Yoga : Time-Honored Wisdom and Scientifically Proven Methods That Alleviate Stress, Open Your Heart, and Enrich Your Life - book cover picture

The Healing Path Of Yoga is exaclty what it promises, healing for mind, body and spirit. I found this book filled with practical tools that anyone can use to transform their lives. Chapters on meditation, imagery, food choices, healthy sleep, yoga postures, breathing techniques, guided relaxation, and more, are all excellent guides for rejuvenation. Nischala Devi's extensive experience in Integral Yoga techniques and her pioneering work and teaching yoga therapy with both Dr. Dean Ornish's Reversing Heart Disease Program and Michael Lerner's Commonweal Cancer Help program clearly shines through. A great guide for one and all and an excellent addition to the yoga literature!

Hanta Yo - book cover picture

A reviewer states the book is not relevant to TODAY's native peoples. This book is not about today. 2/3rds of the book deals with the Lakota people prior to white intrusion. Ruth Beebee lived with the Lakota for 20 years, wrote the original manuscript in the Lakota language and then rewote it in english. Native people today who condemn the book especally with its acceptance of homosexuality, and other contra-christain attitudes are looking at the book through White values. Maybe not a book for native people, but a book for whites to gain a greater understanding of something of the nonEuropean culture that dominated this land prior to European genocide. (Did the other reviewer actually read the book?)

Irangeles: Iranians in Los Angeles - book cover picture

I totally disagree with the authors of the last two reviews. I am an Iranian. I have visited LA and I have witnessed the tackiness that our people display in LA. I am not an anti-westerner but it is so unfortunate that we come to this country and some of us succumb to the plastic and the artificial side of the Western culture. I believe the book does accurately represent the Iranian people in LA. However, the book is not a representation of Iranians outside LA. Most Iranians living outside LA are pretty down to earth folks. Buy the book and see how not to lose yourself completely to the tacky elements of the western culture. Khodaa-Haafez

Truthful and Disturbing

The Rape of Nanking - book cover picture

This is a brilliant work of history. Other readers who find
the author biased are themselves perhaps biased against truth.
That Japan's atrocities during the WWII era are not taken as
seriously in the West as Germany's atrocities, is largely due
to racism. I.E. cruelty and savagery against Asians is not
considered as newsworthy as cruelty and savagery against
Caucasians.This book was a best-seller when it was published and deserves
an enduring place among literature.

The Krytos Trap (Star Wars: X-Wing Series, Book 3) - book cover picture

This book excelled. It is the best in the whole series. While many other books managed to be about as good, none were better. Characters drive this book not battles. Sequences that really shine are WEdge's trip where he is almost forced into a fight. (More ethical behavior dead ahead.) Gavin's encounter with the Bothan. The search for Bacta. The entire trial sequence, which shed light on Wedge and Tycho as fast friends. In a day where two men who show affection are called gays, it is nice to know that some authors can still write about simple friendships. Corran's escape sequence and the deaths of two main characters are outstanding.Stackpole holds himself back in the action department this time out which causes more tension to build until it lets go with a bang. Stackpole still hasn't topped this one. Read it now.

The Grace in Dying : How We Are Transformed Spiritually as We Die - book cover picture

I found "The Grace in Dying" to be an invaluable book that will assist me in my volunteer work with hospice patients--and also in my own life. It is a masterpiece of knowledge and wisdom that can open our awareness to the magnificent potential for growth that lies buried within each of us. It helps us to discover who we really are--we are Spirit. "The Grace in Dying" is so timely, so important, and so needed in our Western world. It will ease our fear of death and help us to integrate death and dying in our daily lives. While never for a second making us believe that dying or living with a terminal illness is easy, it allows us to find the beauty, and some peace, in the process."The Grace in Dying" illuminates the the great transformation that takes place at the time of death--and how we also might find the way, through contemplative and spiritual practices, to this wonderful transformation amidst the living of our lives.

Finnegans Wake (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

Were it not for this novel (?) somewhere some little known writer would create something similar and put him/herself on the litereay map, causing the rest of us to have to hear about it for an unbearably long time. I am glad an already established, and, at this time, much revered writer pulled this linguistic trick so as not to have hear about what a genius the beforementioned hypethetical author is. Joyce was already loved for the slightly more comprehensible books he wrote prior to this one, and therefore the release of this prank, whoops, novel did little more than secure his place as the "greatest novelist." Now we can go on ignoring the gags and babble of "Finnegan's Wake" and go back to enjoying readable books. Thanks.

Not for the squeamish

Book title: Killing for Company : The Story of a Man Addicted to Murder
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Killing for Company : The Story of a Man Addicted to Murder - book cover picture

This book grabs your attention from the very first paragraph as it describes the events leading up to Dennis Nilsen's arrest. It explains in detail Nilsen's early years, and the profound psychological effect on the 6 year-old Nilsen when he sees his first dead body - the corpse of his beloved grandfather.
Although Nilsen's crimes were horrific and, to us, senseless, you cannot help but feel immensely sorry for a man who is so consumed with loneliness that he prefers the company of a corpse to no company at all, hence the title of the book. One can but imagine what might have been if Nilsen had been able to form a stable and secure relationship with someone.

An extremely interesting book for anyone interested in the criminal mind - but definitely not for the squeamish.
