You can bank on this banking book!


Book title: Modern Banking Law
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Modern Banking Law - book cover picture

Only the final third of the book was relevant to the course I was taking earlier in the semester (Credit and Security), so I cannot comment about the first two parts of the book.

That said though, if the final third book is in any way representative of the entire book, it certainly merits 5 stars - the limpid clarity of the writing makes reading about banking law almost a joy (*gasp*). In fact, I have a good mind to take Banking Law provided I pass Credit and Security. :) Yes, this book is that interesting.

"Modern Banking Law" is also outstanding commentary-wise without the typical longwindedness of most textbook writers. I highly recommend this to any student who is taking, or is considering taking Banking Law!

Tony's fantastic biogriphy of half-bird half-man tells of when Tony actually seemed...well human. Yes, it goes back to when he was just a kid with a board hangin' at his side.

Great Book, but a few questions that I need answered


Book title: Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club - book cover picture

This book was absolutely fascinating. On one page, you think Sonny is total derelict who deserves to rot in jail. On the next page, you're cheering for him (especially after he knocked heads with the wimpy Vietnam War protesters). For that reason, it's a fascinating book to read - it really brings out the rebel side in most Americans - most of us wish at some point we could just quit our jobs and ride the open roads. Most of us have a little Sonny in us.

But, there are a few nagging questions that need answered:

- Whatever happened to Sonny's marriage to Sharon? Maybe I missed that in the book. Looks like at the end he was married to a woman named Noel.

- What did he or any of these guys do for a living to create income? Was being in the HAMC their "full-time job?" Did they just sell drugs for income?

A great book, though. I recommend it for good reading while on vacation. Easy to read, but fascinating.

An important and thoroughly enjoyable novel!


Book title: First Immortal
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
First Immortal - book cover picture

I've just finished The First Immortal, and I am astounded -- I had heard great things about it, but it exceeded my expectations. The final chapter was especially masterful; a perfect ending for a 200-year saga, and a perfect beginning for the infinite saga that is implied to follow. Technology will probably not progress exactly as portrayed in the book, but it WILL progress, and this book does an excellent job of illustrating what the near future may be like. A century or two from now, people will look back on our time as the age of death. Few people have had the clarity to see this, and even fewer the courage to say it. --Joseph J. Strout

In the Jaws of Death . . .


Book title: Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 - book cover picture

This book is a great view inside of an atypical Apollo mission: a near catastrophe in space with few options for the crew and death a real possibility. Death not only of the 3 astronauts but of the entire United States space program. The heroes in this book are many including the astronauts, the men at mission control and the administrators at NASA who virtually saved the American space program. A mission in which NASA had literally years to plan had to be completely revised including the engine firings, trajectory and minute to minute time-lines. A great effort by the controllers indeed. The events reflected on in the movie "Apollo 13" are here in much greater detail along with many more facts that were not touched on in the movie. The only complaint was that the book was written in the third person which seemed to de-personalize the story from Lovell's perspective. This was a very enjoyable read however and is highly recommended

A very unusual book


Book title: The Celestine Prophecy (Celestine Prophecy)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Celestine Prophecy (Celestine Prophecy) - book cover picture

Although the format of this book is unusual (in that it is often difficult to distinguish the 'adventure fiction' from the spiritual lessons), it was extraordinarily powerful reading for me. I had previously received the pocket guide to the nine insights written by Redfield as a gift--without reading this book first, the insights were much too abstract for me. I now have a much better understanding of the spiritual insights Redfield seeks to impart. While the 'adventure novel' format may be a put-off for some, if you are open to new life lessons and are seeking spiritual enlightenment, you will not regret reading this short book.

Hello from Heaven : A New Field of Research-After-Death Communication Confirms That Life and Love Are Eternal - book cover picture

Thank you Bill & Judy Guggenheim for writing such a spiritual book. Your book changed my life in such a positive way. I have found confirmation in several books about the life-hereafter. I compare your book to Jenny Crawford's book "Through the Eyes of Spirit" and James Van Praagh's book "Talking to Heaven". I urge you all to keep writing and passing on spiritual truths to all those in-need. I find your works fasinating, healing, and so very comforting. I look forward to reading more from these authors.

Not Original-But A Good Read


Book title: Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

ANGRY HOUSEWIVES chronicles four decades in the lives of five Minnesota neighbors who are members of a book club. I really enjoyed this novel, but I can understand the criticism. If this had been written before the era of "Lifetime Television for Women", the themes of the book would have been sharp and original. However, now we're all a bit over-exposed to stories such as: the perfect wife who's really an abuse victim, the gay child, the drunk mother, cancer, car wrecks, divorce, extramarital affairs, etc.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for sentimental stories, and this one is done well in my opinion. I would recommend it for your book club.

This book is awesome!


Book title: Vampire$
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Vampire$ - book cover picture

This is, by far, the best vampire novel I have ever read--and I've read a lot of vampire novels! I couldn't put this book down. I didn't read it, I inhaled it! If you've seen the John Carpenter film version of this book, and haven't read the book...READ THE BOOK!!! The movie doesn't even come close to the excellence of Vampire$. So, if you are in the mood for a gripping novel about vampires and those who hunt them, this is the book for you.
