Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential - book cover picture

I am not a practicing christian nor do I attend any church. I've seen Joel Osteen on TV before and thought he was the most positive and plain speaking of all the preachers I've seen on TV. When I saw he had this book coming out I figured I'd check it out at the library to see if it was any good. This book was very good, very uplifting, motivating and all that good stuff. The main recurring message seems to be "change your thoughts, change you life". It reminds me a lot of Norman Vincent Peale's "the power of positive thinking" I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with everyday life or anyone who just needs understanding in plain english.
Very enjoyable to read.

8 Minutes in the Morning: A Simple Way to Shed up to 2 Pounds a Week Guaranteed - book cover picture

When I decided to buy the book (I will try anything once) it occurred to me that I might do a few execises and then hide the book so that it couldn't easily be found and there would be no need for me to carry on exercising as 'exercising' is not me! But that is not what happened!
I'm very pleased to say that I am now on day 26 and have not looked back. Note that I have never before written a review but feel moved to do so on this book, because it is GOOD. Why? well it has several things going for it: 1)It takes only a short time each day. 2)The daily snippets of motivational/informational items encourage. 3)Easy to perform and at the end I feel invigorated and look forward to the next day.
This book gets my full support because it is instrumental in making a 'new me'. Buy it and do it!

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (Harper Perennial P.S. Edition) - book cover picture

Never again will I eat fast food. The information presented so brilliantly in this book should be enough to scare anyone away from the stuff for a lifetime. Some have derided Schlosser as a liberal extremist who has embellished the situation in order to make the subject matter more sensational. However, he researched this book for three years, has dozens of pages of detailed citations, and most compelling, has NOT been sued for libel by any of the companies he mentions in his book. Since many of these companies will sue virtually anyone for a perceived slanderous/libelous comment, one must conclude that Schlosser has remained true to fact. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares at all about the world in which they live.

The English Assassin - book cover picture

Protagonist, Gabriel Allon is an art restorer/Israeli secret agent in this thought provoking, intricately plotted, fast paced thriller. At the heart of the novel is the Swiss collaboration with the Nazis in the theft of priceless art during WWII. It is a tale filled with multi-dimensional complex characters---you feel you know everyone of the large cast of supporting characters. It is a story of secrets and betrayals that lures you in and hooks you in the prologue. The bona fide sounding historical detail and alluring foreign intrigue add to this crisply written and polished suspenseful story. Daniel Silva is a master of this genre. All five of his books have hooked me early and never let me go. An exquisite author.I read it in two sessions.If you have yet to discover Daniel Silva, now is not too soon.

How to Manage Your Mother: Understanding the Most Difficult, Complicated, and Fascinating Relationship in Your Life - book cover picture

I enjoyed reading Alyce Faye Cleese's book on the mothering relationship. My mother has been dead for many years but the relationship lives on thru memories, thru my relationships with my children and thru other important relationships. The ten steps in the back of the book are especially helpful in dealing with anyone in your life. I bought a copy of this book for each of my children in hopes that it would facilitate better understanding between all of us. The main message of this book to me was mothers are people too and to have an adult to adult relationship with them you must move beyond your child-like view. Great read, hope another book follows this one soon.

Sophie's World : A Novel About the History of Philosophy - book cover picture

I recently read Sophie's World for as a summer reading book for my 10th grade honors English class. I couldn't put it down! After having more or less learned of all those philosophers and their places in history in my freshman history class, I found very interesting to learn of each one in detail. The novel intertwined with the non-fiction just adds to the marvelous book. I highly recommend this one!

The relationship between humanity and God.

Children of the Alley : A Novel - book cover picture

Children of the Alley (-- or Children of Gabalawi in the Arabic version, which is more fitting because Gabalawi represents God in the novel and everyone is descended from Him, not the alley). All of Mahfouz's early writing is incredibly romantic yet serious and engaging at the same time. This book is among the best, and probably a must read for the following: religious fundamentalists of any sort, people curious about fundamentalists, people with any religious prejudice, people with no religion at all. In short, this is a seriously challenging work that will likely be moving to anyone that reads it.

Computers & Typesetting, Volume A : The TeXbook (Computers & Typesetting Series) - book cover picture

LaTeX that most peoples prefer to TeX is useful for reams of technical paper where quality doesn't matter (reports, notes, thesis), but without turning to a professional typesetter, you cannot attain good results without a serious commitment to the study of TeX.The TeXbook is what you need for this purpose. If you do not intend to go beyond the dangerous bend, you may find LaTeX more suited to your needs.Secondary, it can serves as a model for writers of technical books, with its index, clarity and organization (Knuth's style put apart, of course--for this one being sometime excessive, I would rate this book only 4.9/5)

The Divine Comedy, Part 2: Purgatory - book cover picture

A warning: this is by now an rather old translation, and theres always more to explore in Dante. That being said, it has many insights newer translations lack, and its a brilliant example of a period - if you want to understand how the understanding of Dante has developed, this is a must.
Oh, and by the way, if one can read of the Earthly Paradise and not be moved, one is cheating oneself (as I found out, fortunately). Purgatory is just as much worth the effort as its two Higher and Lower brothers.

For Us In Spiritual Prisons

Book title: God Calling
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
God Calling - book cover picture

I heard of this book from my mother originally. It was gifted to me by someone I briefly met in a prayer group. Since then I have found that none of the entries conflict with Scriptures, nor with my personal religious faith, Catholicism. I am a minister to children at a local Juvenile Hall. And I have found that these young men and women have been drawn very deeply to the words of comfort and peace in this book. It speaks of patience, diligence, rest, strength, joy and doing little tasks for Christ. All of us have our own prisons, and we all need this book as part of our daily spiritual exercises.
