Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk - book cover picture

A rollicking great read of the road from late 60's bands like the Velvets and the MC 5 to the original glam band, the NY Dolls, to NY punk and beyond as told by those who were there. Centered in decadant and decaying NYC of the time, the stories of drugs, music, artistic inspiration, sexual liasons, and classic "I was there" stories about performances (from the first Ramones show, Iggy's glass act, and the NY Dolls at the Mercer) this book is a snapshot of time gone by. At the same time, given the way pop culture works, so many of today's bands owe their existence to these pioneers, many/most of whom never made much money at their craft.With the passing of Dee Dee and Joey Ramone in recent years, and icons like Johnny Thunders and Nico before them, this book's snapshot of the late 60's and early 70's takes on something of a bittersweet edge. A wonderful book you may be tempted to read again and again.

Red Mafiya : How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America - book cover picture

My introduction to the presence of the Russian Mafiya in the USA was limited to "Red Heat" (you remember...that movie starring Ahhnold and Jim Beluchi) and select episodes of HBO's The Sopranos.This book is a terrifying eye-opener to the destructive presence and success the Mafiya has been enjoying for the last two decades.This is a definite must-read for mobaholics and it's an easy read. Robert Friedman writes for Vanity Fair, and he brings to the book the same gritty, petty, gossipy, delightfully-detailed view that you get from a Vanity Fair feature. Red Mafiya offers up a whole new cast of characters for Mob affecionados...but there are some names in this book you will recognize, e.g Marc Rich (recipient of a W. J. Clinton pardon).It's hard for me to say this, but, kudos to Janet Reno, who according to Friedman, finally gave the FBI a green light and funding to begin a task force on the Russian mob.

The President's Assassin - book cover picture

Brian Haig is a must read! Awesome insightful thoughts/wisdom sandwiched between thriller lines, and scenarios. Keen psychological observations of both the common man, and the powerful. Haig is at the top of his game in providing both non-stop action, surprising who done it, and wise cracking drop dead non-PC humor. In fact PC is one of many tongue in cheeck send-ups in the book, including Fox News, White House Spokespeople, CYA Secret Service Lifers, CIA Spooks, FIBIES, Low Life Red Neck Ex Soldiers, Killeen Texas and its seedly side (perahps all Military Base's dark side. If you are looking for a great Airplane read, Snow Day, Slow Day, Vacation Day, Beach Day read, you can do no better than Mr. Haig. His grey matter is always ticking and clicking - enjoy!

Dancing on My Grave: An Autobiography - book cover picture

Wow! This book was simply Amazing! The way Gelsey just opens up her heart and tells her story is beautiful! I loved how she told the truth about her partnership with Misha and showed that he wasn't the perfect man, which many have thought. Also, she brought out the true colors of Balanchine. I'm a younger dancer and had looked up to these men as gods in the ballet world, but my mind has some what changed. I could defintly re-late to her obsessiveness about the "perfect body" and becoming attached to the mirrors. I have read this book over and over and each time I learn something new. The only thing I wish is that I could have seen her perform! She is defintly my favorite dancer of all time and always will be! This is a MUST read for any dancer! Non-dancers will enjoy it too and it will give you a look in to a dancers world. The only thing is, you might have trouble with some of the ballet terms :)

Love and Survival : The Scientific Basis for the Healing Power of Intimacy - book cover picture

Reading this book changed me deeply. Ornish includes moutains of scientific evidence that love, intimacy and service to others are healing, health promoting behaviours. We humans are more than just the sum of our body parts, our minds, our spiritual hearts affect our well being. I recommend this book to everyone willing to read it. You don't have to simply believe Ornish, he has scientific 'proof' for his ideas.

A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive - book cover picture

I love this book. I stayed up all night because I couldn't put it down. I am studying to be a teacher, and I love Psychology. Which is why I bought it (that and it was cheaper than "Chicken Poop for the Soul.") It made me cry however, and it hurts my heart to know that a mother could do that to her son. I reccomend this book to anyone who was an abused child, going to be/is an educator, or who needs a good cry.

After the Lost War : A Narrative - book cover picture

After reading this collection of poems, I know Sidney Lanier. Amazing work. I've read through the book three times now. Friends of mine who claim to not enjoy poetry have read this book and thanked me for recommending it. "But there are many things we don't recall. / Like Hopson, who, at Ghettysburg, / had one heel sliced by a minie ball. / He sings as deeply as he ever did / but he does it leaning slightly to the left."

Tales from Watership Down - book cover picture

This is a great sequel to the first book. I do wish he had written a little more about Havel, Fiver and the rest, but it was very satisfying. I'm really happy that Richard Adams wrote a sequel and I deeply recommend this book to anyone who read the first one. But a word of caution. If you haven't read the first one, then I would not suggest you read this book. It takes place after Watership Down and might be a little confusing if you haven't read the first one.
