Learning to Fall : The Blessings of an Imperfect Life - book cover picture

Although this book was about the devastating disease ALS, I found it uplifting because the author had such a positive outlook and an acceptance of the situation due to his belief in God. It is hard to have hope in a hopeless situation and ALS is a hopeless situation.I became a part of Mr. Simmons' life while reading this book because he lets us into his everyday life and not only his thoughts but also those of his wife and young family. He truly touched my heart. He teaches us all how to fall.

Life Support : Three Nurses on the Front Lines - book cover picture

Gordon's book portrays the caregiving process of
professional nurses in such clear, lucid terms
that readers unfamilar with nursing will say "Ahhhh,
now I understand." With this in mind, nurses should
give copies of this book to anyone who needs to know
what nurses are and what nurses do. This might be
the nurse's neighbors, parents, patients, City Council
Chair, Governor, or State and Federal legislators.
The reader will see very sophisticated knowledge
and skills exhibited by the three nurses providing
care to patients in the stories. This book provides
clear-cut demonstrations of nurse-delivered services
that MUST be reimbursed under the Medicaid, Medicare,
and other health insurance programs. It also gives
evidence of why nurses in advanced practice must have
prescriptive authority, hospital admitting and clinical
privileges, be admitted to provider panels of managed
care organizations, and be a reimbursable member of a
telehealth team.

A Midwinter's Tale - book cover picture

If this is your first McGrail novel-STOP. Leave now and go buy its three predecessors in paperback. It is worth following the magical singer -heroine and her smart [and, as needed, beserker] beau through their development in all of the previous novels. It also helps to see the pattern of past mysteries solved improving our understanding of our present and hopes for our future-- never so much as in this novel of multiple assaults, murders offset by love, forgiveness, wit, and healing.

Mystic River - book cover picture

Mystic River is one of the most substantial books in any genre that I've read in a long time. Every character comes alive on the page, complete with enough condensed history to flesh out even the minor players. "Good" and "evil" exist as a backdrop but do not motivate the characters. My initial concern that the childhood tragedy that propels the rest of the story was an overdone theme was quickly overcome by the surprising direction that followed. Almost everyone in the book is testing the limits of love and finding out how far they will go to keep it. The three central figures, boyhood "friends" Sean, Dave, and Jim, are as conflicted about their actions as they are about the the nature of their relationships. They find very different ways of coping with both the past and the present, all taken to the extreme. Fate is the underlying catalyst, but the heart of this story is what they bring upon themselves.

The Invitation - book cover picture

For anyone who wants to live life more abundantly, lovingly, honestly and more fully this is an excellent book. It speaks to the very essence that we are all filled with and touches your soul. It moves beyond the outer world of appearances and has us look to within for what connects us, holds us together and speaks to us. She has an excellent way of making spirituality an everyday choice and is well aware of the trials that come of living a life of love in a world so often filled with fear. I highly reccomend this book to anyone regardless of age, gender or anything else that we so often divide ourselves with. It is an amazing book filled with insight and just by reading the poem that she draws her book from it will change your way of looking at the world.

The Garden : A Parable - book cover picture

This incredible book was written not only by a learned scholar of Tibetan Buddhism, but by one who has obviously experienced realizations of the path. In this book Geshe Michael provides us with all of the information we need to embark upon the same spiritual journey, and to experience its magical results. If this whets your appetite for more, he also has created a series of correspondence courses which provide even more elucidation of the Buddhist path to enlightenment. (not a money making scheme-these course are free to those who cannot afford them) These are available through the Asian Classics Institute. If you like this book, try also Santidevas "Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life"

Zollinger's Atlas of Surgical Operations - book cover picture

Truely one of the most successful books of the kind, the strucure is well designed, the operations included cover a eide range of procedures, and most noticeble is the very high quality of the explanatory figures, sometimes by just brawsing through them you get 80% of what to do... the text is well written and concise. You will find many approaches for each operation. of course it will be impossible to gather all the surgical craft in one book. but this one succeeds in collecting a large chunk of it. i highly recommend it for all juniors and postgrads alike.

The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide To Life and Love - book cover picture

I Love This Book By Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Carolla with Marshall Fine. I have watched Dr.Drew and Adam on MTV and heard them on the Radio. This book is not like either. It offers a different look at both of these pesonalities and their view on sex, drugs and Rock and Roll. This is an important book for Teens and their parents to read. Kind of a guide book for a generation. It is a "must have" book on anyone's shelf. Not only will you learn, but you will laugh while learning. That is the best way. Marshall Fine captured the true voices of Drew and Adam which made it a quick and easy read.

Somehow the last comment seems to be very personal. I wonder how the comment like this can be posted here, and even worse, twice. I was taught by Dr. Sahni, and used this book as text book. He is one of the best instructors in UF, and the text book using in the course were considered as good by most of my classmates. I notied a few students who never read book, seldom attened lecture got bad final score and then blamed the book and the instructor. So I doubt any biased comments with personal like this came from one of my those classmates, especially from Gainsville, FL. My personal opinion is: it is a good book.

Wicked : A Modern-Day Tale of Evil

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - book cover picture

What is the "Nature of Evil?" Is someone born evil, or is he/she shaped by their environment? Is "evil" an inherent trait, or is it just a case of being misunderstood? Does Society, as a whole, or Religion, in part, lay the foundations for the differences between Good and Evil?
These are some of the questions asked, and partially answered, in this wonderfully entertaining tale of the evolution of a misunderstood young girl into one of the greatest villains of all time: the Wicked Witch of the West.

The book does not pretend to have all the answers; it merely causes you to ponder the questions for a long time after the book is finished. I promise you, if read with an open mind, you will NOT look at society and religion in the same way again!

Definitely a must-read for mature readers, as it delves into not only the darker side of a world we all once thought of as perfect, but into the darkness of your very being.
