Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites : Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals - book cover picture

I've tried several of the recipes from the book and haven't been disappointed yet. Granted, I do like my foods heavily spiced, so I feel free to experiment until each recipe is to my liking. The best part, though, is all the wonderful nutritional info included in the book: glossaries, food substitution suggestions, suggestions on how to cut down on fat, a dictionary of terms like "low-fat", "nonfat", "light" and so on. It's a useful book for anyone who is wondering how to be more creative and healthy with their cooking.

Tommy at the Grocery Store - book cover picture

this book is fun to read to children, and it has wonderful illustrations. Very humorous. Tommy is mistaken for various items - banana, table, potato. He's purchased by customers at the grocery store, but returned each time, until finally "a beautiful lady", his piggy mother, comes to rescue him. My two sons, now 5 and 9, have loved this book for years, and we often to read it out loud together.

A real gem of a book

Programming .NET Components, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

After a very long time I have come across a book that is really fabulous. Most of the programming books are too bulky and they waste all the pages in explaining only the documentation rather than the architecture. Most of this documentaion can be obtained on the web. This book explains the principles and the architecture behind all the commonly used .net concepts. I highly recommend this book. However, do not buy this book if you are planning to learn .net and have never used it before. This book caters to programmers who have had at least some programming experience in .net previously.

Holderlin: Selected Poems and Fragments (Penguin Classics) - book cover picture

The translations produced by Mr. Hamburger, himself a poet, reads very well indeed. But should they be used in such bilingual edition as this one, being not very literal? In 'Dichterberuf'('The Poet's Vocation'), the 12th stanza reads:'Zu lang ist Gottliche dienstbar schon/ Und alle Himmelskrafte verscherzt, verbracht/ Die Gutigen, zur Lust, danklos, ein/ Schlaues Geschlecht und zu kennen wahnt es,' and the translation:'Too long now things divine have been cheaply used/ And all the powers of heaven, the kindly, spent/ In trifling waste by cold and cunning/ Men without thanks, who when he, the Hightest,'. We can see that the translator use the alliteration of 'cold' and 'cunning'(only 'Schlaues' in the original) to compensate that of 'verscherzt' and 'verbracht' (only 'spent' in the translation). We can understand why the previous reviewer says the translations are often surprising(and why I says they are not very literal).

Palace Walk - book cover picture

my first language is arabic thats why i read the the triogly in arabic.i remeber the first time to read it was when i was 16 years old .i loved it so much and read it once again when i was 20 .i think it refects the exact picture of people in egypt from the begining of the centuary till the 1950 but it also contains some wrong ideas about egyptian and made a sterotype of them in the "saied ahmaed abel guaid" character we are totaly different from this picture .actually egptian usually call some one "se saied" to show that he is strict at home.i think nowdays here in egypt women are "se saied" and men can not refuse any demand of them.

Stupid White Men ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation! - book cover picture

Michael Moore has one bad habit: Telling the truth in plain English. He is hated by conservatives and their apologists for his in your face delivery of the facts. If his footnotes were put to the test, they would pass...Anyway, the one "sorry" state of this nation is the emphasis on "infotainment." I love how, in the beginning of the book, Michael states that he was watching grown men audition for a sports quiz show asking each other little (useless) bits of sports trivia. I agree with Michael: That's a sad commentary on this society when people know the stats from 1943 of a baseball player yet they don't know who their representatives are.Michael, like Gore Vidal, touches raw nerves and I say if more people acted like him, we wouldn't be in the current mess we're in.

Sandra And The Scoundrel (Harlequin Love & Laughter, No 32) - book cover picture

This was not the book I expected it to be, but it worked anyway. A carefree wealthy L.A. socialite widow ends up living in a run-down apartment near Orange County and Palm Springs. She ends up "married" to her rich dead husband's estranged son and spends her days babysitting his two adorable kids. The goal: to reclaim her stolen fortune from a swindling lawyer with a penchant for gangster movies. Such a story is too bizarre! But it still works in an engaging way.A charming tale, as Harlequin romances go. As a native of the area, I enjoyed the book's descriptions of Southern California.

She's Come Undone - book cover picture

A friend encouraged me to read this book. It took me a few weeks before I got a hold of it. Mr.Lamb has done an exceptional job of portraying the lonely,miserable,confused Delores. There have many situations in my own life that I have exprienced that were similar to the character's. I found myself crying for her, frustrated with her, and times even disgusted, finally at the end I found myself cheering for her. Ever since I read this book I have been recommending it to every female I know and I always find myself saying "I still can't believe a man wrote this!"

Best Chinese Cookbook!

Chinese Cook Book - book cover picture

I've got a lot of Chinese cookbooks and most of them gather dust on my shelf. This is the one I use over and over. In fact, I'm replacing my original copy because I've worn it out. The recipes are fantastic, the tips on how to prepare ingredients are priceless, and many of the sauces and techniques can be adapted for other uses. This book helped me go beyond its recipes and start creating my own. P.S. I heartily recommend the scallion pancakes.

A Mystery Unlike Any Other

Book title: The Alienist
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
The Alienist - book cover picture

It has been several years since I read this novel (I just purchased The Angel of Darkness) but I remember it quite well. Unlike some mysteries, every thing in this novel worked. The best part is Carr's intricate research into this time period. I think this is one of the most colorful eras in American history. I love the fact that Teddy Roosevelt and other "real" people appear as characters. To any one who has not read The Alienist I say you are doing yourself and injustice - you will not want to eat sleep or breathe until you get to the end.
