Excellent knowledge base for IFR


Book title: Instrument Flying
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Instrument Flying - book cover picture

This book is filled with many incredible tips for IFR flying. And you don't have to be IFR rated to understand the material. There are many jokes throughout the book but they are very relevant to the topic at hand and help emphasize the point. And they are not overbearing so most of the material is real "meat". The author cites many aviation accidents to show how not to fly IFR. It is really impossible to find anything wrong about this book.

The Glory and the Dream: A Narrative History of America, 1932-1972 - book cover picture

Never before have I read a book as fascinating as this. Having read several of William Manchester's other works I knew what to expect, but I never imagined it would be like this. Manchester begins with the Bonus Marchers and ends with the shameful close of the war in Indochina and the beginning of the end of Nixon's Administration. Using the classic narrative prose characteristic of of all his work, Manchester takes the reader for a ride through time that runs the gamut of emotions: anger, shame, glee and a million others in between. I know it sounds corny, but I was moved to tears at times as I read this book. That is the kind of book this is and that is the kind of shared history we, as citizens of the United States, have. So wonderful. So terrible. It really puts everything about our country -- its people, its politics and its society -- in perspective. If you are at all interested in history, YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK.

What Katy Did Next (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

I really liked "What Katy Did Next." I am a big fan of all of the Katy books, and, although this book is not quite as good as the others in the trio, it is still wholesome, descriptive, and, well--it has a touch of romance mixed in.
In "What Katy Did Next," Katy is invited to go to Europe for a year with her friends Mrs. Ashe and Amy. Katy promptly decides to go, packs her bags, and departs on a vessel bound for England. She stays in Europe for six months, sees the places she has dreamed about, and, as aforesaid, has a romantic scene just at the end.
This is a sweet and satisfying read, especially for girls 10-14.

Great step by step directions for awesome results!

Draw Ocean Animals - book cover picture

My 7 year old daughter chose this book at her school book fair. She loves to draw, and with the step by step instructions in this book, her ocean creatures are great. People are always amazed at the drawings. We have tried other drawing books, without success. This book gets an A+. 10 year old big sister and her friends enjoy the book also. They are studying animals in 5th grade, and have a project to do on the different types. Each report must include a drawing of the animal they write about. This book has helped greatly with the fish. A fifth grade teacher was so impressed she asked me if I would order her this book and 4 other Draw titles by Peel Books. Thanks, from a very satisfied mom.

A fresh angle at the world

The Ground Beneath Her Feet : A Novel - book cover picture

Right from its VINELANDish opening its clear that this will be a different novel. Maitre R this time pays tribute to the American writers- V2 pops up quite early and the world of fictional characters and an alternative reality is a delight to read. I remember reading R's review of Enigma of Arrival which had a reference to the creation of ....land beneath his feet... and this book further solidifies and gives body to a shaky creation of internationalism. One needs to read it differently than the previous Rushdie books; the language is easier though the discourse doesn't always fuse very well. Old fans need patience: the book resonates long after you finish it. New readers will find a welcome introduction to Rushdian oeuvre.I like this novel more because I have been reading Vollmann, Powers, Wallace and Rushdie balances their view and territory from the other side and the result is sheer pleasure..

Very well chosen group of stories

The Young Oxford Book of Nasty Endings - book cover picture

I enjoyed almost every story in this book---a rarity for a book of short stories. They were all well written, and all had an ending that either you would not have seen coming, or if you did, you still found it a bit of a shock. I loved the story which featured teenagers from different eras in history meeting, and then seeing a young person that looked like he was from prehistoric times---until something tells them otherwise, and the truth is quite a shock! This would be a good collection to upgrade the quality a little of what kids are reading if they are into horror like Goosebumps---stories with some substance but just as gripping---in fact probably much more so.

With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa - book cover picture

This description of the nature of military combat as experienced by the frontline fighter is the best of its kind I have read. The writing is clear, direct, and honest. One can understand how this brief, intense moment in Gene Sledge's life left a searing and indelible impression.
The great value of the book is that it strips war of its gloty and romance. Gene saw and understood the necessity of the effort in which he was a part, but regretted that necessity, and he deplored the brutality and horror which characterized it.
For those who would understand the nature of close military combat, the price it exacts from those who engage in it, and the debt we owe them, it is required reading.

Wonderful for Skimming and Quick Overviews

Binding: Hardcover
The Reader's Companion to American History - book cover picture

Although I've only read a small fraction of this delightful reference work, I'm quite grateful to own it. It allows you to quickly research difficult topics, check the veracity of a book, and follow your intellectual curiousity.
For example, I recently watched a biography of Frederick Douglass, the 19th century abolitionist. That revitalized my interest in the fiery orator and the abolitionist movement. The Reader's Companion contains a concise, yet in-depth profile that emphasizes Douglass' insights into the roots and consequences of racism in the 19th century.
This hefty reference work, featuring the work of respected scholars should be used by anyone enrolled in a United States History course, professional historians, and amateur historians.
There is also enough balance that you can easily detect the biases of various writers.
