The Demon-Haunted World : Science as a Candle in the Dark - book cover picture

This book should be mandatory reading for all students in University, if not High School. Rather than wasting time memorizing facts and dates, students should first learn how to critically evaluate information.

Segan passionately and articulately argues that pseudoscience and anti-science is a threat to our species - that ignorance of true science, belief in the paranormal, and lack of critically thinking skills is keeping us from attaining true enlightenment. I highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks the truth about life, the human condition, and the universe in which we life.

Bird by Bird : Some Instructions on Writing and Life - book cover picture

Thank you, Anne Lamott! (I thought I was the only one; what a relief to know I've got such excellent company!) This is one of the best books I've ever read, and I plan to buy copies for everyone I care about. The bit (on page 23 in the paperback) about how she hopes doesn't get hit by a car before she writes the second draft is so accurate I got dizzy. It's shocking to see the comments that I hear in _my_ mind written on someone _else's_ page. And then to watch her debunk those fallacies with such humor and confidence! When/If I grow up, I want to be just like you, Anne.

Excellent Book for those who are not Mathematically Inclined

Doing Statistics for Business With Excel: Data, Inference, and Decision Making - book cover picture

I used this book for an undergrad economic stats course. The book is not based on technical concepts, that is to say, not all about the numbers. The book uses storylines to explain the statistics concepts. The exercises are helpful as well. One thing to note though, the text uses minitab extensively in the regression chapters etc when the book came with "kaddstat" for excel. Overall, I would say this book is best for those who do not enjoy reading technical mathematics (focusing on forumulas, etc). This book is more for those who are always asking "why am I learning this"..."what is the real world application of this stuff? "

This is a beautiful translation of India's great scripture.


Book title: The Upanishads (Penguin Classics)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Upanishads (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

The Upanishads, translated by Juan Mascaro, is a beautiful translation, which, like Mascaro's translation of The Bhagavid Gita, breathes simplicity and purity throughout. The Upanishads are maxims on the spiritual life, and are poetry, scripture, guidance all in one. "The truth is hidden by a circle of gold. Unveil the truth, oh God of light, that I might see!" "It is not for the love of the husband that the husband is dear, but for the soul that is in the husband." "Behold, all that lives and walks on earth. Leaving the transient, take refuge in the eternal, set not your heart on another's possession. Working thus, a man can wish for a life of one hundred years. Only actions done in God, bind not the heart of man." (I paraphrase). This collection is truly wonderful, and should be a part of everyone's spiritual library, along with the major scriptures of all the world's faiths.

How Birds Build Their Nests


Book title: The Magpies' Nest
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Magpies' Nest - book cover picture

I was teaching a unit on birds in my elementary classroom and came across this book at the library. I immediately purchased my own copy. The illustrations are wonderful! The author uses an interesting story to tell how birds came to build their nests. The magpies are the "teaching" birds and the others are trying to learn how to build a nest. Just as children do - many of them listen to the first part of the directions and off they go because "they know what they're doing." Most of the birds listen to only part of the instructions, therefore, there are many different kinds of nests being built. This can lead into a terrific discussion of the types of nests that you might have seen. You'll have to read the book to find out about those lazy cowbirds and cuckoos. Anyone who wants to know more about birds and their nests will treasure this delightful book.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) - book cover picture

WOW! I heard about Harry Potter on Rosie O'Donnell and figured I'd get Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone. I must repeat: WOW! I read it in 2 days. Chamber of Secrets, another 2 days. I didn't know if The Prisoner of Azkaban would measure up, but, need I say, WOW! The book is the BEST yet, and one of the absolute greatest ever. The writing is fresh, the characters are WONDERFUL, and the twists and turns are delicious. I admit it: I read it in NINE HOURS. I believe these books will become classics. J.K. Rowling, Keep it up and get cracking on book 4!!! And don't give up on Lupin and Sirius Black, because they are DA BOMB!!! Hope you love these books as much as I do!

Beowulf: A New Verse Translation - book cover picture

The W.W. Norton company did itself, and us, a favor when it comissioned Seamus Heaney to translate the English epic "Beowulf". Heaney provides the reader with a clear translation that I imagine would make many forget about any unpleasant experiences they might have had with the poem years ago. Heaney's translation is, perhaps, not the most literal or "Anglo-Saxon" translation on the market but that is more a product of his targeting the general public as his readership rather than those in academia.This dual-language edition proves useful to those amateur (or professional) medievalists who want to try their hand at improving upon Heaney's work here. I for one have marked up my copy with numerous notes and possible alternate translations for sections. It makes for an exciting and different read each time and challenges the reader to engage with the poem in ways they might not otherwise.
