Autumn Story Brambly Hedge - book cover picture

There really isn't a lot of quality books about the Fall, which is a shame since it is such a lovely season. Kill Barklem books about Brambley Hedge are wonderful little tales, filled with detailed drwaings about the little community of mice. Winter is just around the corner and the harvest is not complete. crops The mice rush to collect the rest of their crops before the rain begins. The wealthy Lord Woodmouse's daughter tries to help out in earnest but has wandered into the Woods. Now she is lost and scared, and it is after dark. Thrilling little tale that is worth it for the artwork alone.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

I have enjoyed bits and pieces of Al Franken's career since the Saturday Night Live days of Franken and Davis. After experiencing all of the publicity surrounding this book, I ordered it immediately and have not been disappointed.It takes a talented person to write a literate analysis of a complicated subject such as politics. It takes a once in a generation comic mind to keep all of the facts and figures truthful and provide a scathing and hilarious take on politics and the conservative movement in America.I truly enjoyed the hilarious irony of using an outrageous and inflammatory book title to point out the outrageous and inflammatory journalistic styles of many of his targets.If you're a conservative, buy one copy and fume. If you're a liberal, buy one copy to savor and one to make a conservative friend fume.Al Franken once proclaimed the 1980's, "The decade of Al Franken." This book may find many readers chanting for the "millennium of Al Franken."

Darkness, Take My Hand - book cover picture

Boy, can Dennis Lehane craft a story! DARKNESS, TAKE MY HAND is the second in the Kenzie/Gennaro series, and it certainly does not disappoint! It is a fast-paced thriller that leaves you sorry that you have to put it down for something as trivial as eating or sleeping. As Patrick and Angie unravel clues, Patrick's past with his violent father and with Angie and Renee, his ex-wife, becomes clearer to the reader. Lehane is the most exciting and hip writer to come along in some time, and I wish him a long career. More Kenzie and Gennaro, Please!

Heinlein's Best: An exploration of freedom & responsibility

Book title: Citizen of the Galaxy
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Citizen of the Galaxy - book cover picture

This is Heinlein at his best: a science fiction novel that explores the meaning of freedom and responsibility both for individuals and for cultures. Many of Heinlein's best novels were written for a young audience, but with levels of subtlety for all ages. "Citizen of the Galaxy" does this through the story of Thorby, a young boy found in a slave market on a human planet that had long since split off from Earth.
Without giving away too much of the plot, Thorby moves through four different cultures, in each case playing a very different role in society and becoming part of a different "family." Thorby's dilemmas and decisions make this a proper text for any college ethics class. "Citizen of the Galaxy" was certainly an important influence in my adolescence.

Eight Secrets Top Exam Performance in Law School - book cover picture

Professor Whitebread came to our law school during first year to promote (and give away) this book during a lunch. The advice in it is right on, and I would suggest reviewing it before taking finals in every semester of law school. It is very short, so you probably need an additional book for first year guidance as to outlining, etc., but this book is excellent on taking exams. Also, if you just do all the things that he assumes you have done during the semester, this book might be the only one you need. A great piece of work from an energetic, intelligent man.

Wilmott did it again--another mother of all QF books

Paul Wilmott on Quantitative Finance, 2 Volume Set - book cover picture

After looking at my colleague's copy of this new fantastic, super-duper book, I had to get a copy. How does this guy write so well? Also, I like his approach of uncovering the mysteries of mathematics. Often, QF papers are ridden with symbols that only a select people would understand. With Wilmott's book, anybody with college training in math and motivation can understand and internalize the concepts. I wish other academics follow his examples.

Skid Road: An Informal Portrait of Seattle - book cover picture

I just loved this book. It was required to read for a History class. I couldn't put the book down. I read it in a weekend. I learned so much about Seattle, and the wild characters that help to create and establish Seattle. I never knew such people help to built Seattle. Now I know The history behind the street names in seattle, and more about the history in Seattle that I would have never had know.I'd love to read more books that this authors has written.

The Other Side of the River (Cassette) - book cover picture

I had to read "The Other Side of the River" for a class in school called Conversations on Race. In this class we discuss different parts of racial barriers and disscuss how we can make a difference in errasing racial stereotypes. This book, about a death that seperated two towns even more than they already are, reveals many of these racial stereotypes. I think that Alex Kotlowitz did a really great job in presenting both sides to this story. It is hard to write a non-bias story when you have your own views on the situation. I really hope that those who read this book became aware that racial prejudisim is still present in our country. I hope that those who read this book will encourage their friends and loved ones to read it as well so that the eyes of America may be opened everywhere!

A Finer End - book cover picture

Although Deborah Crombie is not British, her series is up there with the best of the classic English mysteries. This is her latest and one of the best. If you haven't visited Glastonbury and its famous Tor, you are going to want to after reading this. The "mystical" atmosphere and unusual characters in the book reflect the real place and as usual, they and the case will keep your attention. Her main charactures, Duncan and Gemma, get more interesting and each new book is like a visit from a couple of old friends. I would suggest starting this series in order, if possible, since it is fun to watch the relationship grow. But in any case, once you read one of her books, you will surely seek out the others!
