Snow Crash (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

My 16 year old grandson recommended this book and loaned me his copy. I really enjoyed it. The social commentary is great. It portrays a United States that has been sold to large coporations, where the government has become nothing more than a slave to these companies and an unscrupulous TV preacher is trying to conquer the world. There are no longer any freedoms and "might makes right". In this United States the Mafia are the good guys. All of this is told with a great mix of computer science fiction and a very interesting discussion of linguistics.

The Odyssey beats soap operas by a mile.

The Odyssey (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

Anyone who is intrigued by stories of action and adventure will love The Odyssey. Robert Fagles translation keeps the poetry of the original Greek while rendering the story of Odysseus wandering journey home from the Trojan war and his son Telemachus' desperate search for his father into modern English. The wholesale slaughter that reunited father and son do to the suitors who have attempted to steal Odysseus' wife in his absence is far more exciting than any video or made for TV movie. The language is beautiful and brutal at the same time. The plot is vivid and exciting. The moral judgement rendered by Homer on men acting in selfish exploitation of others is the reward for taking the journey home with Odysseus

Wonderful intro to complex analysis.

Complex Variables and Applications (Churchill-Brown Series) - book cover picture

I used this text for an undergrad course, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The book, as the title suggests, is ideal for physicists, engineers, and applied mathematicians, in that it hits the important and powerful features of complex analysis which are tremendously useful for applied work. What's more, it succeeds in doing so without sacrificing mathematical rigor, and without getting bogged down on stodgy formalism.As for the scope of the book, I believe it can be fairly stated that just about everything in the book should be studied and mastered by readers doing applied work. From my own experience, everything covered in the book has turned out to be relevant at one point or another. It can be said without exaggeration that this book is a gold mine.Buy it. It's worth every penny. As George Foreman would say: I guarantee it.

Tear jerking story about a girl and her horse

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Horse Whisperer - book cover picture

I read this book about a year and a half ago and I still remember it like yesterday. The author is so good at describing the character's pain and feelings that it's hard to put the book down. I can relate to Grace's character because I was in a riding accident quite like that of the book and my horse and I both had to go through the healing process which was a rather rough thing to go through. This book is an excellent read fr anyone who wants to feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.

The Bone Collector (A Lincoln Rhyme Novel) - book cover picture

This is one book that I believe everyone must read. It is a never-ending spiral of actioin and suspense. I've seen the movie, and I've read the book. Unfortunately for the movie, it is bringing shame to this book. The movie just leaves out sooooooo much of the really good stuff that you just have to read the book to fully understand the enitre plot. Besides, the book is WAY better than the movie anyway!

Mersmerizing. Captivating. The best!


Book title: The Crocodile Bird
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Crocodile Bird - book cover picture

Along with Tree of Hands, this is my favorite work by Ruth Rendell. She is such a gifted novelist and talented writer. The first time through this book, I was totally captivated by the artistry of her presentation and the intriguing-ness of the plot. I can't believe that one professional reviewer found it slow. I was totally gripped as the story progeressed and totally unsure about what would happen. I feared the worst and thought the whole thing had been set up brilliantly. Everything about this was great in my opinion: the mystery, the characterizations, the captivating setting. I've reread it just to see the artistry. There's much here of the passion of physical love and how parents can hurt their children and the resilience of a gifted human spirit. I loved it.

A Bible of Electrochemistry Education

Modern Electrochemistry 1 : Ionics - book cover picture

The difference of this second Ed. from the first one is huge; the author actually rewrote ca. 50% of the first volume (Ionics) and ca. 70% of the second volume (Electrodics, still in writing), covering literature up to later 90's. For classroom use, the most important addition of the edition is the <B>problem set</B>, which are extremely helpful for students on introductory level. It was a great honor of me to be invited by the author to write part of the problem sets for all chapters in Vol.1 and a few chapters in Vol.2, and I can tell you that the author and the problem writers put in a lot of effort to elucidate the fundamental electrochemistry while also help original thinkings of the students on more advanced electrochemistry issues.

Classic Desserts Rediscovered


Book title: Great Italian Desserts
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Great Italian Desserts - book cover picture

Italian cuisine is not usually known for its dessert dishes while other cuisines, such as French, are renowned for desserts. This is a shame because Italian desserts are one of the best kept culinary secrets of the world. Finally, I have found a book that has taken these hidden treasures and put them together in a clear and easy to use format. While the book could be more visibly attractive with more pictures, the recipes are nonetheless excellent, some of the best I have found. Being Italian, I can certify that the author has retained the authenticity of the dishes. Readers from most countries in the world should be able to find the ingredients required. Most are basic kitchen staples such as butter, flour and sugar. I recommend this book very highly to pastry and dessert lovers or anyone who wants to try a little culinary adventure.
