Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat - book cover picture

I always find Sacks's works well-written and moving. He seems to have the gift of putting himself in the patient's place, never condescending, always accepting.It's unfortunate perhaps that some reviewers find Sacks 'disrespectful' to the 'mentally ill'. But Sacks's patients aren't mentally ill; they have neurological illnesses. To confuse the two is to grievously insult both the mentally ill *and* the neurologically ill. As a neuro patient I've had my fill of the falsely kind, condescending and ignorant; Sacks is none of the above, and that is why his works are so appealing.

Wow! This account of the battle is amazing. If you've seen the movie, you've got to read this book. If you haven't seen the movie, you've got to read this book. If you don't know anything about this courageous and heart-stopping battle, then you are missing out and definitely must read this book. It tells the story of brotherhood, honor and courage. You will not put this one down for a while and you will certainly not forget this story for a long time. A must read now during this time when American troops are abroad in conflict.

Peter & Rina finally tie the Knot!

Day of Atonement (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels (Paperback)) - book cover picture

What a "Honeymoon", there doesn't seem anything that doesn't happen to the New Mr.& Mrs. Decker. Wonderful fast read, great insight on the Jewish Orthodox community. Peter is confronted by his on heritage & Rina is a true fiesty heroine with a mind of her own. Sadly this book shows no one is immune to the trouble of your society & it touches even the most protected children.

Art History Revised (Trade) (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

This text has been quite an interesting read; while I haven't exactly poured over all of its length, the cestions I have read for my art history class are full of things like methods, media, and social information. ..The only thing to watch our for is: This book weighs ten pounds. It is *very heavy* to carry back and forth to class and I avoid that whenever possible. If the class can be managed by buying only Volume 1 or Volume 2 of this text, that would be the way to go. But otherwise it's excellent.

The Riddle of Scheherazade: And Other Amazing Puzzles - book cover picture

Seeing my frustration at being thoroughly unchallenged in logic in my math class at school, my mom bought me this book. I owe her one. There are coercive logic puzzles, easy but sneaky riddles, and math games. There are liar/truthteller problems to keep you guessing for hours. That said, this is also a great book to read on a plane. It is so complete, you will never need another brainteaser book. That is, until you memorize all the questions.

Lance Armstrong's War: One Man's Battle Against Fate, Fame, Love, Death, Scandal, and a Few Other Rivals on the Road to the Tour de France - book cover picture

I love people who rate a book without even bothering to read it first.

Whether or not you think Lance is "arrogant" or at fault for leaving his wife (which of course, you have no idea what really happened. How can we judge something we know nothing about? She might have kicked him out, or they just grew apart. Get over it.), this book is brilliantly reported and written. It gives a no-holds barred glimpse into not only Lance, but into his main rivals and his friends.

I found it completely engrossing to get details about the training, nutrition, and dedication that goes into a pro cyclist's season. It is truly remarkable what these people put themselves through.

This is not a hero tribute to Lance. In fact, in times, Lance is not portrayed in the best light. But, it makes him human to those of us who only know him from the TV.

Killing Mr. Griffin (Laurel Leaf Books) - book cover picture

Being a Lois Duncan fan for quite awhile now, I am not surprise at all that she can write the way she does. What am I very pleased with is how she does little details that no one ever notices and then from that...it causes things to "spill" and the story to go on from that. I absolutely loved this book and soon plan to read more of her books as well. THe ending was dreadfully sad...this book shows much of Miss Duncan's talents.

I bought this book in 1993 as a requirement for my high school freshman English class. I have used it so much over the years that the spine is barely holding together! The information is laid out so simply and it is wonderfully easy to understand. The only reason you'll ever need to update it is to keep up with new rules on sourcing. My copy was written before there were even encyclopedias on CD-rom, much less the internet! But I still use it today -- 10 years and a master's degree later!

Wuthering Heights - book cover picture

this book has haunted me from the day i've read it. however i'd read it again because it is written so well. Heathcliff and cathy show a love so intense and deep that hatred creeps into those very soulls who once loved more. a story which unfolds gradually, emily bronte has shown immense skill and talent and in the end produced a masterpiece which will never be forgotten.be patient though, it gets too dark and slow at times. but do read it ........its definitely worth it.

An excellent book on Hannibal by a Civil War Cavalry man

Hannibal: A History of the Art of War Among the Carthagonians and Romans Down to the Battle of Pydna, 168 B.C., With a Detailed Account of the Secon - book cover picture

I really enjoyed this book. He traveled there to see for himself the sights and explore the possible Alp routes. Some of the illustrations off Adrian's column are anachronistic but he cautions his readers on this. He has a cavalry soldier's insights into some situations, he shows how Hannibal's genius still shined long after Cannae. He is a good guide on how to read between the lines of Livy (the Nola battles for example). The narrative flows easily and is very well researched.
