The Richest Man in Babylon - book cover picture

I read this book in the early 1960s upon the recommendation of my then Dale Carnegie instructor. For me it was most effective because of the clear, simple style in which it is written. I participated in an employer sponsored stock purchase plan during my entire career with AT&T. In addition, the employer matched a percentage of each dollar saved which is like found money. Whenever I wanted to buy something NOW, I thought about the suggestion in the story to "never sell your children," referring to not spending earned interest. I never forgot that. I am enjoying a comfortable retirement today. I credit the suggestions in this wonderful book with keeping me on track. Now it's OK to spend some of my "children."

Statistical theory and application

Book title: Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)
Rating: 5/5

Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics) - book cover picture

I used the fourth edition in a college course and found it to be well written and very understandable (the fourth edition was pre-calculator and had math tables in the back). The book assumed only an elementary calculus background and so was not rigorous in proving every theorem introduced, but was pretty good in showing the derivation of commonly used results and formulas.

I particularly liked the problem sets which were a mix of theoretical and applied exercises (with answers to the odd numbers), and NOT a long list of statements to be proven.

The emphasis was on theory, but statistical theory developed from attempts to solve real life problems and this book recognized that and considered applications of that theory throughout.

The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night - book cover picture

Parents, don't let people tell you that you're spoiling your child by not letting them "just cry it out". THEY'RE WRONG!!! You don't have to listen to your baby's heartbreaking cries and you don't have to be a sleep-deprived martyr! This book helped us to get the most stubborn baby ever born into a reasonable nighttime routine - WITHOUT TORTURING HIM!!! He's sleeping so great day and night. He naps (3) times a day for at least an hour each time as opposed to a few 20 minute snoozers. And he's learning to go to sleep at night and stay asleep/ fall back to sleep on his own! We were waking up with him as many as 10 times/ night; now we're down to just a couple and that's just in the first few weeks. I highly recommend this book to every parent, it changed my life!

I thought the book was outstanding. After I read it, I went out and bought the Edge, Target, Impulse, the maze, False Pretenses, Eden..and all of the rest of the mysteries that I have left out...I wasn't disappointed by a single one. I can't wait for Hemlock Bay on Monday. I thought her writing was awsome, the characters were great..and the story lines for all kept me hooked...Oh, please keep writing these types of stories..

Out to Canaan (The Mitford Years) - book cover picture

The Mitford books entertain us with small town life. But more important than that, when Father Tim is driving down the road and begins to count his blessings, I put the book down and started to count mine. And you know what? I have quite a lot to be thankful for. It doesn't matter if my battery went dead this morning - the sun was shining and the crocus and forsythia were blooming all around the statue of St. Francis. What a good morning !

A haunting story that you will never forget...

The Girl in the Box - book cover picture

I first read this book when I was 13, and now, almost 20, it is one of the few stories that I still think about. I finally ordered it, and after reading it again, I am still amazed. I admit, reading it for the second time and knowing the ending did take some of the suspense out of it, but not in a bad way. I think the fact that this story has stayed with me for so many years speaks volumes alone. I have never and will never forget Jackie McGee. I am constantly running ideas through my head of what happened after the book ended. This book gets inside your head and stays there. It does things to your mind.This is probably the best young adult book ever written. It is no doubt the best I have ever read.

The best that I have read from King

Binding: Paperback
The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel - book cover picture

This must have been very difficult to read as a serial novel in its original form. I was hooked right away by this story, I don't think I could have waited for the next installment. What an incredibly likeable and well written bunch of characters. And the story is really emotionally powerful. Its happy and sad, tragic and remarkable all at the same time. I couldn't put it down.I thought this book had a different kind of feel to it than most of King's other books that I have read, but I loved it. Very interesting and entertaining. Also an excellent movie.

Wonderful Book for Women

Book title: Goddesses in Everywoman: A New Psychology of Women
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Goddesses in Everywoman: A New Psychology of Women - book cover picture

This book is very uplifting and an enlightening read no matter what type of woman you are. One of the best qualities is the author's ability to present the strengths of each archetype and not build a hierarchy of goddesses. This approach allows the reader to understand different women, as well as conflicting emotions within herself, and see the positive qualities. I found myself completely taken by her discussion of the Hestia archetype. In fact, I did some further research on this archetype and now have a collection of notes to pull from. If a book inspires further investigation, it is definitely worth the read.

Murder Of A Snake In The Grass (Scumble River Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Skye Denison is an amazing character. After giving a high school speech that lets the community know just what she thinks of them, she ends up some years later coming back broke and dumped by her fiance. The community has not forgotten her speech.
More about the above is contained in earlier books in this series.
Now, while Scumble River is in the thick of its bicentennial celebration, her ex-fiance comes back and a murder comes in.
Skye always had guts and compassion but she has grown.
I'm already standing in line for "Murder of a Barbie and Ken", the next Scumble River book, due out November, 2003.
Denise Swanson never lets a reader down and the Scumble River series is not to be missed.
