The Gift of Dyslexia - book cover picture

In January of '99 my first grader was completely unable to read. After formal testing at a university, special education intervention, and endless hours of struggle, I sat down and studied this book. By April of '99 (3 short months) my daughter was reading at a second grade level! I have since then gone on to complete the program described in the book for other students with good success. One 9 year old girl went from a pre-primer reading level to a 2nd grade reading level in just 5 days! Furthermore, the book offers hope. While dyslexia clearly causes problems it also offers special talents. Knowing what those are enables me to encourage interests where she is naturally gifted. Albert Einstein, Alexander Grahm Bell, Thomas Edison... my daughter is in good company. Read this book!

Wars Have Two Sides


Book title: My Brother Sam Is Dead

Binding: Hardcover
My Brother Sam Is Dead - book cover picture

In this action-filled novel, Collier and Collier present both sides of the American Revolutionary War without prejudice through the eyes of a fourteen year old boy who is torn between love and loyalty to his father, who is loyal to the king, and his older brother, who strongly believes in the revolution. As the novel, which is based on a true story, unfolds the reader begins to understand how strong political convictions can tear a family to shreds, when Timmy Meeker vascilates between the two positions seeing both sides commit atrocities. The authors use irony brilliantly to depict the unfairness of war. I learned more about American history from this novel than from any history book. I would recommend this book for mature readers in the fifth grade to college students who must report on a book from the historical fiction genre. In fact, anyone who want to know more about the American Revolutionary War.

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) RIP

The Headless Bust: A Melancholy Meditation for the False Millennium - book cover picture

Edward Gorey died in the Hyannisport Hospital on April 18, 2000 from heart failure. On April 23, 2000, Charles Osgood on "Sunday Morning" (CBS) aired a final interview with Gorey and gave a short memorial to him. Gorey final interest featured finials, and his final stuffed creation was the figbash. Gorey's first work was THE UNSTRUNG HARP (1953) and THE HEADLESS BUST (1999) appears to be his terminal one unless he has left some manuscripts for posthumous publication. Let's hope that he did. He's gone, but he is now draped with the robe immortality and on his way to take his place in the Pantheon of Literature next to Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll. A fitting poem for his mausoleum would be one by Walter Hamilton: "I never had a piece of toast, Particularly long and wide, But fell upon the sanded floor, And always on the buttered side."

Lem is a genius


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

I am glad that Solaris is being made into a movie once again. Lem has been out of spotlight for too long in the West. He is one of the best SciFi writers of the 20th century. Arguably he is the only SciFi writer who should be seriously considered as a candidate for a Nobel Prize in literature - his writing is that good, that profound, and that funny!Read this book and any other book by Lem that you can get your hands on!

One of the Best Tools For Bible Study Available


Book title: HarperCollins Bible Dictionary
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
HarperCollins Bible Dictionary - book cover picture

I have a number of reference books that I use rather frequently for scripture study. Without a doubt, the two volumes I refer to most are THE HARPER-COLLINS BIBLE DICTIONARY and HARPER BIBLE COMMENTARY. I find these two volumes to be the most helpful tools for Bible study and homily preparation. The dictionary is set up like any standard dictionary, but the entries are based on people, places, and books of the Bible. The entries give a detailed explanation of the person, place, event, or book of the Bible. Each entry is written by a biblical scholar and many of the names are among the best known names in Biblical studies. Many of the entries also have small bibliographies so that readers can get more detailed information if need be. The Harper-Collins Bible Dictionary is an indispensable tool for students of Biblical studies, people involved in preaching and teaching of scripture, and anyone interested in a more in depth look at the Bible.

The more you need this book, the tougher it is to read.

Abused Boys : The Neglected Victims of Sexual Abuse - book cover picture

It was very unsettling to read a book with this title and discover I was reading about myself. At the same time, it was quite a relief to hear someone break the silence. The case histories are tragic, yet we need to hear about them so we can learn how to protect our own children. I also recommend Judith Herman's "Trauma and Recovery." Warning: Don't read either of these books if you are a "survivor" of child sexual abuse, unless you are feeling VERY stable.

Ann Rule was just beginning her writing career when she met Ted Bundy, with whom she volunteered nights at a crisis hotline. Ted was ambitious, gentle, and sweet. Little did she know that he was the same "Ted" that she was helping to track cross-country, the "Ted" who killed young girls.Ann Rule is the consummate true-crime author, and this is her most personal, and shocking, book.

The Best Childcare Book Ever !

Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care - book cover picture

I'm shocked that some people didn't like this book. I have found it to be warm, practical, compassionate and right on the money when it comes to describing the typical developmental stages children go through, as well as any problems or medical ailments they might have. It's definitely the first book I reach for whenever my children get sick, or enter some new developmental stage I'm not familiar with. Forget Penelope Leach, Terry Brazelton and the rest; Dr. Spock is the best!

If you're illiterate about this theme, learn easy, and pick up a new point of view - better say many points. And a new way of thinking too. If you're a knower play with these models, join the established community for more answers, and apply these models to real situations. A very helpful mate for think tanks, marketing execs as me, engineers, biologists, and anybody who need new responses for old problems. A funny, serious, and very very illustrative reading in few pages!.

Binding: Paperback
Stranger in a Strange Land - book cover picture

From the ludicrous statement of "A Martian named Smith," spoken out of hand in an article about science fiction, Robert Heinlein weaved a tale about the consequences of encountering alien life - and coming home. Valentine Michael Smith, born of woman, but raised by Martians, not only created panic, hysteria, and a new way of life in his fictional world, but in our own, by shattering the barriers of human thought on matters of life, love, and religion. As the Martian - raised human explored the alien world called Earth in search for the meaning of life, he called on us to examine our values. When Robert Heinlein died in 1988, he took one of the most inciteful, entertaining minds with him. May the seeds he planted in his stories, like STRANGER, continue to bloom in the millenia ahead
