Unlock Behavior, Unleash Profits - book cover picture

This is a great how-to book about providing leadership that makes people want to work harder for the cause. The leaders who have thrived throughout the numerous "fad" business management styles are those who have mastered the skills in this book. The author provides numerous real-life examples from her consulting work, which makes the book very interesting and authentic. The examples she uses portray situations most business people have encountered or will encounter again and again. I would rate the book as "required reading" for all managers and leaders. It is a timeless approach to good management and leadership.

Bio-terrorism is imminent--Clancy predicts the future

Book title: Rainbow Six

Rainbow Six - book cover picture

Clancy is right on the mark with his depiction of the risk of biological warfare. Although delivery systems remain problematic, and virilance of the organisms have not proved consistant, it is only a matter of time before we will experience a biological attack. This was a wonderful story. It was technologically accurate, spell binding with its story line. If only we would get the national will to actually have the protagonists go out and kick some butt as the story line suggests!

If you're very religious, don't bother, you won't get it

The Da Vinci Code - book cover picture

This book was phenomenal. Period. End of Story. I have recommended it to every person I know and they've all loved it, except 2 people. The only 2 friends I know who did not like this book, are both religious bible-beaters born and raised in the South. They can't get it through their heads that the church isn't perfect and there are actually other theories and relgions out there. So, if you can open up your mind and put your religious beliefs aside for one second, then you'll love this book. I think the movie is coming out in 2005.

The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit : Expert Methods for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses - book cover picture

Our organization has implemented a very successful Data Warehouse, due largely to following the design and deployment principles from Dr. Kimball's two textbooks. The key to a successful Data Warehouse is providing all business users an easy to use and high performance queryable system. The dimensional design is, without a doubt, the defacto standard for Queryable Data Warehouses, and the author does a superb job motivating its use and explaining how to develop your integrated, dimensional data warehouse. In addition, the author gives valuable advice on many, many other aspects of the process, such as assessing your readiness for proceeding with a warehouse effort. This book is a "must read" for anyone involved in a Data Warehouse project. You will have an excellent chance of succeeding with even a most complicated Data Warehouse System if you follow the wisdom in this book.

Move over, Mad Max

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Market Forces - book cover picture

Morgan's third novel is his best yet. Seldom have I finished reading something and felt so gut-wrenched, not to mention impressed enough to go back and re-read parts immediately thereafter. Here, Morgan steps well back from the Kovacs milieu to a near-future where corporations rule the world and executives settle matters in bloody road-rage duels. The premise owes all to Harlan Ellison's "Along the Scenic Route," but the rest is all Morgan, and it's VERY good stuff. Powerfully drawn characters, uncompromisingly brutal action, solid world-building (overcoming a slightly overstressed base premise), intelligent social commentary and a page-turning pace combine for a truly outstanding read. Oh, and there's even humor, such as a little self-referential jab at the Kovacs novels. Too cool. A new Kovacs is due out this year. Can't wait.

what a story

1968 - book cover picture

My father was in Vietnam, and he doesn't talk much about it. All my information on what the war was about/like has come from authors who were there, like Haldeman. As a matter of fact, the only reason I knew about this title is because I'm an avid fan of Haldeman's SF; therefore, I had to give this a try, and I'm glad I did. This book is quite depressing, maybe better or worse than others' experiences, but it gets the message across. The last chapter wraps the book up in an unexpectedly tight fashion.

An incandescent novel that stands out against all literature

F. Scott Fitzgerald: The Great Gatsby (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald) - book cover picture

Time, love and dreams are what give value to life, and in The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald shows us the truth of this statement as if it were frozen in a crystal. Without doubt this book has more depth and expresses more of life in one moment than many novelists capture in entire works. The dream of love that Gatsby lives for reveals so much about life that it motivates thought about what we ourselves value. Set against a background of glitter and sophistication in the 1920s this work is at once fresh but forever a classic. I can't impart the emphasise that says you should read this.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) - book cover picture

I received this book as a gift for Christmas, and instantly, eyeing the title, I was a little wary. However, I have to say, this was one of the most outstanding and well-written books I have ever had the privilege of reading. The plot was very well developed and interesting... I opened it the morning of December 25, and was finished with it at one a.m. December 26. It was really that good. I couldn't put it down! The characters were so real to me, and the emotions so genuine, I felt as if they were right in the room with me. As a sixteen-year-old girl, I could more than relate to almost everything that the four friends were going through. It was real, honest, and absolutely outstanding. I more than recommend it to anyone, and would buy a sequel, or another book by Ms. Brashares, in a heartbeat!

Great British Cooking : Wellkept Secret, A - book cover picture

Jane Garmey aims this book at the American cook, artfully dispelling the myth of stodgy, heavy English food. The recipes are traditional fare such as roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese (my British husband's favorite!) and fabulous puddings (desserts). Make no mistake, this is not California-lite cooking, but it may remind you of Sunday dinners at Grandma's or Great-aunt Molly's. The recipes are well-written and easy to follow. Ms. Garmey liberally shares out anecdotal information about the curious names and history of some of these dishes. She also has sections devoted to English High Tea and Beer. I recommend this book for Anglophiles, expats living in England and trying to get to grips with the food, or anyone who loves cooking for the sake of the art.
