The Rape of Nanking - book cover picture

The author of this book, Iris Chang does a wonderful effort in detailing the horrible events in an eastern Chinese city under Japanese occupation in the late 1930s. The slaughter that she describes really is hard to read due to the incredible evil that she detailed. I must admit that I had almost no remembrance of this event from a history class, but after reading the book I doubt I will ever forget it. This is a well written and fully documented book that details the story from the perspectives of the victims, the Japanese soldiers who committed the crimes, and western ex-patriots. One of the more important parts of the book for me was explaining how the government of Japan had spent years dehumanizing its soldiers and creating an environment where these kinds of atrocities could take place. If you are interested in World War 2 this would be a very interesting and new topic to read about.

This is a very good ESL book

Grammar Connections 1 - book cover picture

I have been teaching ESL to Hispanic farmworkers for 3 years. This is by far the best book I have looked at and used (and I've looked at a lot). The grammar and exercises are clear,there is a lot of good illustrated vocabulary (yes,pictures are worth 1,000 words) and I particularly like the 10 minute grammar games at the end of each chapter - fun things to do. The whole book is a wealth of lesson planning material. The book is Canadian so you do find "colour" for color and references to Toronto but that makes it all the more interesting to me and my students. I am looking forward to using Grammar Connections #2

Getting Control: Overcoming Your Obsessions and Compulsions - book cover picture

As a sufferer of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). This was truly my favorite book on the subject. The author is a top notch doctor with the best facts on the illness. A weight was lifted off my shoulders when I starting to read this, just about any thought you think or action that you do that you think is "crazy" is in this book. Dr. Baer puts you at ease, is very compassionate. He explains that this is an illness and you are by no means crazy. There are storys of actual patients stories and how they went about helping them. He goes over their therapies and medications. This can be a self help book or there are many resources of where you can go for help, or find clinics in in or near your city. There is even a OCD foundation that you can contact for help. Dr. Baer, in my opinion should win some kind of award for this wonderful book.

The Fiery Cross - book cover picture

I waited with much impatience for this book to be published and I enjoyed it tremendously. I must be one of the few who think her works have continued to improve from the less enjoyable Outlander to the latest book. I stayed up 2 nights straight to finish it and even my husband quit pestering me when he realized how much it enthralled me. I especially enjoyed the scenes at Aunt Jocasta's wedding and the descriptions of Claire's medical procedures. I can hardly wait for the next one--and I'm sure it will be a long wait because writing this good takes a long while!

Well illustrated, this classic book, written by a remarkable Egyptologist, is a comprehensible overview of Egyptian civilization. The author discusses the discoveries which led to the beginning of Egyptology; he presents Egypt's geography starting with Sudan and Nubia, ending with the Delta; he describes the history and formation of Egypt from the Predynastic to the Late Periods; he describes Egyptian social groups from the pharaoh to the peasants.

Beautiful, Stunning Book

Book title: The Silmarillion
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Silmarillion - book cover picture

This is a stunningly beautiful classic edition of the pre-quel to the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. It was written over a period of about fifty years by J. R. R. Tolkien and really never finished. This book lays out the foundation of the world as Tolkien visualized it. It's the story of how the jewels were created, how the world worked. In this edition, it is a beautiful book, complete with 48 beautiful paints made by Ted Nasmith, many of which are included for the first time.

Along with the Quenta Silmarillion itself are several short pieces that extend and expand the world. One of these is a lengthy letter written by Tolkein in which he explains his vision in his own words. Here an overview of the world as he saw it, as he wanted it published. The four short pieces Ainulindale, Valaquenta, Akallabeth and Of the Rings of Power complete the work. Here are all the rich Tolkein words that describe his dream, his world.

What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know : Preparing Your Child for a Lifetime of Learning (Core Knowledge Series) - book cover picture

I feel very helped by all the stories and activities in the book. Fables, Fairytales, Sayings and their meanings, Math, Science, Geography and more are being discussed in a language for the adult to teach their child in a way that only a parent can "translate" for their own child. It helps defending oneself from "dumbed down" school curricula. My only suggestion: the book would be perfect if there were activities to help comprehension of the mostly text fairytales. For instance a little craft project that involves acting out a part in a story to emphasize the moral/meaning/concept of a story.

Bravo!! Best book published about Garth to date!

American Thunder : The Garth Brooks Story - book cover picture

As a huge Garth Brooks fan, I eagerly awaited the arrival of this book and I am happy to say that once I received it, I couldn't put it down! It is by far the best book I've read about him. Ms. Sgammato's style is interesting and her research information is captivating. Cudos to Jo Sgammato for a fine work of art; she should be very proud. I sincerely think that if Garth were to read this book, he would indeed be flattered and most appreciative. This book is definitely a must-have for any fan of Troyal Garth Brooks.

True Masterpiece......

Book title: The Lord of the Rings
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Lord of the Rings - book cover picture

I love fantasy, so i read all the fantasy books, reading Lord Of the Rings is no exception even if the book took months to finish and maybe too advanced and confusing for me.
Still I read it after finishing the hobbit in curiousity who destroys the ring. I could have just flipped over the last page but I started from the beginning which had an intriguing plot because of the ring Sauron made. I could not stop reading it to see what happens in the next chapters.
That is what all the book should be like, dramatic and suspenseful, the book was like a movie. A few bad things about the book was that the story was overwhelmingly long, I get tired of the book and also the terms that J.R.R Tolkien used, made the storyline hard to follow especially for an illiterate like me. However, I would recommend it everybody and call it a true masterpiece anyway.....
