The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL - book cover picture

I learned about things from this book that I could do with Transact-Sql that I never dreamed of before I read it. The SELECT chapter is worth the price of the book alone. So many great examples and great code. This chapter alone gave me a whole new perspective on Transact-Sql. I also loved the full text search chapter. This part of Sql Server has always been a bit of a mystery to me. Now I understand it well enough to use proficiently.I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Administrative Transact-Sql chapter. Every script in this chapter belongs in your toolbox if you manage Sql Servers of any kind.

The Power Deck: The Cards of Wisdom/Book and Cards - book cover picture

This deck provides a lovely way to connect the outside world and events with your own internal understanding and meaning. Each card represents an aspect of life -- represented both in writing and with some of the most provocatively wonderful artwork I've ever seen. The text on each card becomes a meditation -- a springboard -- to help you focus on what is happening with you and your surroundings. Another great tool for growth and depth.

A romantic masterpiece

Ocean Apart - book cover picture

I enjoyed the book. I finished "An Ocean Apart" in 48 hours. It was a different twist in a romance novel for a man to be a victim of lifes foibles. I liked David being a hero -- superman. Why not read a book where the main character is there to save the day, especially after personal tragedy followed by self doubts and insecurities. I read to escape and relax so thanks Robin Pilcher for a fresh and interesting "read".

Hanta Yo - book cover picture

This book was based on an actual "Lakota Historical Document", it might be a novel but various historical events can be verified. The review post on 10 July 1998 said we cannot accept it as history because the Lakota of today are not like the Lakota of 1815. That is like saying we cannot accept historical Rome because the Italians are not the same now as they were in ancient times. If you have not read this book do so, it will open your mind.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven - book cover picture

Alexie's prose is with imagery and the seamless integration of memory...this book is beautiful. The stories can be very dense and full and while I enjoy and understand them on one level, I look forward to re-reading them and gaining a deeper understanding of Native struggles - with whites, with each other, with alcohol, and with tradition. This book is not a re-telling of the movie that was based on it - "Smoke Signals" - but a very different collection of stories that hold within themselves very important lessons.

When Genius Failed : The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management - book cover picture

I have learned much about the finance world by reading this book. I admired Merriwether and his clever partners on their way to success, and I was terrified (not an exaggeration) at the force with which LTCM came crashing down without anyone being able to do everything to stop the fall.
The book is a lesson in economy, and a glimpse into a world of gains so fantastic that would leave 99.9% of common people with their mouth gaping. The highly skilled partners had the magic touch, but they failed to follow basic business rules, and no matter how good they were the strength of the market destroyed their businees like an infuriated God wiping a small planet out of its orbit with the back of his hand. Excellent book, excellent writer, great reading experience.

The Uncertain Path (Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice, Book 6) - book cover picture

First of all, i am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I can tell youabsolutely anything about that universe, both expanded and in themovies. And I am absolutely OBSESSED with the Jedi. No offnse to Darth Maul, here, So, when the Jedi Apprentice Series came out, I like, freaked. Obi-wan has to be one of my favorite characters, and I want to know everything(repeat, everything)about him, even though he's dead. These books are excellent, even though a bit youngish. I love them and Jude Watson for writing them! May The Force Be With You All! :)

The Greatest Generation (Tom Brokaw) - book cover picture

My husband and I listened to the audio version of THE GREATEST GENERATION while we were on a road trip. Aside from the fact that the history was enlightening, the stories and the way that Tom Brokaw presented the material made it very entertaining. In his position at NBC News, the author had apparently corresponded, or personally spoken with a lot of World War II veterans and recorded their experiences and inspiring stories into this book. Their thoughts and remembrances are warmly told and it made me proud of the American soldiers, the regular GI's, who gave up a part of their youth and fought so bravely for their country. Their stories are emotional and heartfelt!

How to Know God : The Soul's Journey into the Mystery of Mysteries - book cover picture

I discovered Dr. Chopra and his works while listening to the Oprah show one evening. I have to tell you that I was a sceptic until I was challenged to purchase the audio tapes of 'How to Know God'. This has been close to 6 months ago and I am still learning and opening new doors in my mind. The book has allowed me to transform my everyday existance to a new level. Dr. Chopra uses quantum physics, notes scientific studies to develop the foundation for God. What Dr. Chopra has made us realize is that all religions in the world are similar when it comes to the Unknown - God. We are all praying, meditating, etc.. to the same God. I thouroughly enjoyed the audio book and intend to follow it's teachings.
