Name Your Baby - book cover picture

Unlike most baby name books that focus on style over substance, this book excels at accurate meanings (even when they aren't PC) and research. The pronunciation guides, meanings, variations, language/country of origin, etc. are all spot-on and thorough. I've permanently loaned several copies of this book to expectant friends and have never regretted it - nor, I'm sure, have Frey, Penelope, Cecily, Jael and Nerissa all of whom have it to thank for their names! A classic for parents, authors and nomenclature enthusiasts.

A Ph.D. Is Not Enough: A Guide to Survival in Science - book cover picture

Over the years, I have filled most of the roles described in this book, from raw graduate to mentor and reviewer.There are two books, this one, and Peter Medawar's "Advice to a Young Scientist", that I read now for both pleasure and profit, and only wish I had read (or in the present case, that it had been around for me to read)40 years ago.My only criticism is that this book says nothing about the transition from research to management, although this will be a stepping stone (or a stumbling block) in the career of all but a minority of scientists.

A novel that must be read!!

Book title: Johnny Got His Gun
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Johnny Got His Gun - book cover picture

Johnnny Got His Gun is an amazing if terrifying book. I have never been more provoked by any novel more so than this one. I must agree with another reviewer though, the plot is a little weak, but the overall affect makes up for it. This novel is a must read for any high school student, it brings all those history lectures home. This war DID happen people WERE killed, but the WORST fate of all was to be injured. Johnny Got His Gun is an amazing novel that I'm glad to have read and hope that you will too.

Alicia - book cover picture

Although not finished with this book yet i would like to portray to you how incredible it is. The author Alica herself has given a true meaning to that period in time. This book is a recollection of her hardships during World War II. You hear how her family is bruttally murdered yet she attempts day by day to survive. After her third time being taken away by the Nazi's or other anti-semetic troops she lives day to day in a ravine working in a differnet field daily to earn bread and sour milk. She has nightmares that her mother is dead but one early morning her mother appears. Many things like this happen that make it an incredible book. by: Charlotte R. Joseph

BEST book ever!!!!

Book title: The Truth about Forever
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Truth about Forever - book cover picture

This is the best book ever. I couldn't put the book down. I finished it in 3 days. When I was reading it, I was imagining what Wes would looked like. I pictured him as Trent Ford the guy from How to Deal. Then I searched How to Deal and I didn't know this, but Sarah Dessen also wrote that book, which later became a movie. I was so mad when the book ended, I wanted to read more. I hope she is writing a "The Truth about Forever 2"

Bring this one back

Ant and Bee and the Rainbow - book cover picture

I bet a publisher could make some money bringing this book back into general circulation. I remember Ant & Bee and the Rainbow vividly as a little kid during the mid 1960s, so it's been around a while. While the particulars of the story have faded over 40 years, I do remember the colors and the humor and maybe even the suspense bringing me back to look this one over again and again as a 2-4 year-old. I would love to get my hands on it for my own young children. If anyone has any tips on getting a copy, let me know.

His Best Short Story Collection Ever!!!!

Book title: Night Shift (Signet)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Night Shift (Signet) - book cover picture

I thought this book was phenominal. It ranks up there with Desperation and The Regulators. I thought it was lean and mean and hit with such intesity that Iwould have insomnia at night. I thought the three most spookiest stories were: "The Boogeyman"(always check the closet), "Gray Matter"(it's not like "BOO!!!" scary but its weird scary like "Thinner" on my block there is a house just like Ritchie Geradine's)and "Graveyard Shift" Other phenominal stories are "The Ledge"(mind boggiling), "Battle Ground"(A Great Story), "The mangler" and "Strawberry Spring" That story was metioned in the novel "Desperation". I say this is his best book of short stories of all time! Read it and you'll be scared!!!!

Great book to introduce yourself to Dyer with.

Real Magic: Creating Miracles in Everyday Life - book cover picture

This is a charming book about not limiting yourself and letting go of the forces in your life that hold you back. I had avoided Dyer's books for years because I had an impression that they were mass market mumbo-jumbo fluff, and I am kicking myself for being so arrogant. This was the first Dyer book that i have read and it is wonderful.Dyer maps out a specific plan for you to be able to achieve your goals. He gives you specific strategies for how you can attain those goals. He describes the importance of balance in your life, and gives you permission to focus on yourself and your needs and wants. He shows you how the only thing that limits you is yourself, and that when you shed these perceived limitations, anything is possible.I recommend this book to anyone who would like a positive change in their life.

Prescient Read... In Light Of JFK, Jr. Demise

Book title: Turn of the Century

Turn of the Century - book cover picture

I enjoyed this novel possibly because I'm in the IT field and I seriously miss Spy magazine. But, after the JFK, Jr. tragedy, this weekend, I couldn't help but go back to the book and re-read the last couple of pages. If you've read the book, you know many of Andersen's technological "spoofs" are real or will be in the next year or so. Yet, I got goose pimples re-reading the last 2 pages in light of this weekend's events. Even the name of the character... eerie.

Binding: Hardcover
Violet & Claire - book cover picture

This book is extremely good. What it may lack in substance is made up in a clear, edgy technique that leaves the reader feeling content. If you aren't into surrealism meets hard-core reality, then you may not pick this up. I personally find it extremely well-told, and an excellent read for all young adults. The story of friend-ship is told in a depressing, but over-all healing way, and I think Block really captures all of our lives; there is happiness, and sadness...we decide what feeling is ALWAYS impacting us.
