PRISONER'S DILEMMA - book cover picture

Largely an exploration of mathematically-based games and puzzles, what makes this book work is how Poundstone can breeze a reader through them, then instantly say "Aha! Isn't this exactly like Political/Business/Interpersonal Situation X?" to put them in the proper focus. I found this book through a political science class of all places, and it fits beautifully there, exploring the nature of alliances, trust, subterfuge, and competition. If you've ever seen the emotions that can come from trying to win a simple game like Risk or Monopoly, or watching a competitive show like Survivor, you can see how Yugoslavia/Enron/elections/whatever-disa ster-du-jour can be understood along the same principles. Poundstone is a mathematician, but he keeps it simple and light, yet relevant.

This book broke me.

First They Killed My Father : A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers - book cover picture

I started reading this book the other day, and spent the last 5 hours determined to finish before I did anything else.

I've never been the type to cry over much of anything. I feel sad enough, and my heart aches for the misery and pain others have experienced, but I'm just not prone to tears. This book however completely leveled me again and again, if not page after page and I found myself crying almost the entire time I was reading it.

Not only an emotional story, it is fluid and easy to follow. The imagery is spooky the way it can draw images in your mind.

Best thing I've read in last year.

English as a Second F*cking Language : How to Swear Effectively, Explained in Detail with Numerous Examples Taken From Everyday Life - book cover picture

This book is really f*cking funny. Stephen King, who really knows how to swear, called it a "Great f*cking book." It doesn't have any thing like #$, $@#$, and %? in it, only real swears. Only a high school freshman who didn't dare to swear on the internet or a Puritan crank pretending to be one would try to persuade someone not to read this book. . Read this outrageously funny book. Buy it or steal it, but read it if you want to laugh your butt off

McNally's Risk (Archy McNally Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I am in the midst of reading the most entertaining mystery series around, and I can't wait to get the next McNally book. McNally, the playboy of Florida's gold coast, wines and dines multiple girlfriends while working for stodgy old dad (the "pater", a.k.a. the "governor"). This book was no let down from the first two excellent entries in the series. The description of the bad guys was particularly humerous -- a slick con man and his thug buddy (something between a meat cleaver and a vampire, driving a gun-metal caddy). I really enjoyed the lunch scene between McNally and those two. The peripheral characters also added a lot of charm to the story. A certain element of danger enters near the end, as Archy starts to step on too many toes, but you know our hero must survive for another story. If you like Lawrence Block's burglar series, you will love Lawrence Sanders' McNally series!

The Westing Game is the Greatest Book


Book title: The Westing Game
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Westing Game - book cover picture

I like The Westing Game book because I like to read mysteries. This book is exciding and confusing at the same times. Barney Northrup sends 16 letters to people inviting them to Sun Set Towers. There are some weird charaters n this book. Thereis a restaurant and a coffe shop in the building. Turtle Wexler one of the main charaters took a bet from Otis( delivery boy),Doug Hoo(a star runner),and Sandy McSouthers(door man)to go into the old and haunted Westing mansion. Turtle finds a suprise. Angla Wexler(Turtle's big sister) is marrying a doctor that she does not what to marry and does something you would never expect. I recommed this book to all people even if don"t like mysteries. I love this book and rate this book a 5 stars!

Highly entertaining look at Independent Producing.

Shooting to Kill: How an Independent Producer Blasts Through the Barriers to Make Movies That Matter - book cover picture

Definitely the most readable book on the subject of Independent Producing that I've ever read. Writing from her own experience makes this anecdotal book on producing much less dry than any other I've read. Not for those looking for a handbook, this offering gives you a real feel of what it's like to be an independent producer and insight on how she's made it happen. I love that her tone throughout is "this is how I did this" and not "this is how it must be done." Excellent starting point for anyone interested in independent film production.

This book awakened my spiritual search


Book title: Real Magic: Creating Miracles in Everyday Life

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

I bought this book beacause I had read "Your Erroneous Zones" a year before and somewhat liked it. But this is WAY better. 20 years of self-development show the difference here.If you're not still in the spiritual bandwagon, this book will most likely change your life. And if you are already there, it will expand and, especially, nurture your search.As the author says, this book is about miracles, about a new dimension in life. Maybe the most important thing you will find here is a kind of special motivation that is omnipresent throughout the book; you don't know where exactly, but something starts clicking on you and it goes on and on.If you feel either disappointed or eager to learn some secrets of life, you can't go wrong with this book. I have read it three times and I think it is one of the finest works of its kind, and the best book from Wayne Dyer.

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson - book cover picture

Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicholson is trapped between her parents, her little three-year-old sister, and her mad cat, Angus! Yet Georgia is just 14-year-old she tells what's on her mind in her reluctant diary such as the boy who kisses, not talks, with the big mouth, her love for Robbie Jennings (a 17-year-old Sex God), and her hopes of not being a lesbian.
Even though I am a 13-year-old boy, I still find this book, which explains pretty much about being a girl, funny, cool and a definite page-turner!

The Compleat Day Trader: Trading Systems, Strategies, Timing Indicators and Analytical Methods - book cover picture

I HAVE READ MANY BOOKS FROM SOME OF THE TOP TRADERS IN THE WORLD AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANYTHING AS INFORMATIVE AS THE COMPLEAT DAY TRADER. I TOOK EVERYTHING I HAD LEARNED ABOUT TRADING AND WAS ABLE TO TWEAK IT A BIT WITH SOME OF JAKES TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS LEARN A FEW NEW METHODS. THE MOST LUCRATIVE TRADE I HAVE MADE IN THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS HAS BEEN THE 30MBO. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS BOOK.

Teaching Creatively by Working the Word: Language, Music, and Movement - book cover picture

For all teachers who believe that learning is seamless, this is a book to revel in. Through scripted teacher/student dialogues, it suggests how to facilitate these kinds of sessions, starting with developing the skills enabling students of all ages to write original non-rhyming poetry, to letting words take you to movement, finally to bringing in all the elements of music......form/dynamics/texture/melody etc. It is the only book I've seen which paints on this broad and lovely canvas where words become poetry and poetry becomes extended into...allmost "theater pieces" to be shared by the writer and the whole class. Good stuff. Highly recommended.
