Was Einstein Right?: Putting General Relativity to the Test - book cover picture

Everyone knows that Einstein revolutionized the theory of gravity. But only experiment can tell whether he got it right. Will recounts in clear and nontechnical language the story of how Einstein's theory was put to the test in earth- and satellite-based experiments from the 1950's to the 1980's. He describes how it is actually possible to see space curve by making very accurate measurements in the solar system, and he explains how those measurements were made by the Mariner probe to Mars, by radar surveying of the planets, and by bouncing laser beams off the moon. From these highlights to the three naked Stanford professors whose experiment is still waiting to go up in the Shuttle, Will sets out every aspect of this fascinating story

Hunger (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - book cover picture

This is a book that hits most of its readers like a sledgehammer! The days, hours and minutes of the nameless first person are so vivid and bring out every thinkable sensation in the reader. It makes you speechless - only Knut Hamsun himself could put words to describe "Hunger", the very beginning of his breakthrough - the man who taught the best writers of the 20th century how to write. To every single person who has not read "Hunger": This, if anything, is a MUST READ!

The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

The Duke and I was the first book I have read written by Julia Quinn. Let me just tell you guys something, I laughed out loud! It was so funny and refreshing! Being a mother of three and owning my own business, I wasn't able to read it in one setting, but it wasn't because I didn't want too! The Family scenes were great and funny! The love scenes were very nicely done and very sensual! The story was great! It wasn't all hardship stuff that so many stories seem to have (if you read alot of books you know what I mean.) It is more down to earth. The charactors are great people! So, if you want to read a really great book and escape to a different place for awhile...read this one! After all, I am online right now ordering more of her books!

Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading - book cover picture

This is a great book in itself, and an excellent sequel to Trading for a living by Alexander Elder. The author is a psychologist turned professional trader and his writing shows his education/prior experience as a psychologist. This book deals mostly with the mentality one should have in order to successfully trade and financial/risk management...both go hand in hand. The book also touches upon technical analysis and serves as a good intro to it. You won't be dissapointed by this book.

Of Love and Other Demons - book cover picture

I have always liked Marquez, and this was a feast.

This story
magically transported me to an era where religion, politics,
and superstition were so intimately mixed with ordinary
lives that a ordinarily clear sense of good and bad needs
reevaluation, and it forces us to rethink all our judgements
in light of the existing human conditions. And in this
topsy turvy excursion into different time and sensibilities,
what comes clearly is that so long as we continue to exist,
our pain and suffering at our own hands will continue side
by side with our triumphs and victories.

Zipping, Zapping,Zooming Bats (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science Books) - book cover picture

I love this book and so do my 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter. It is filled with great pictures of bats and all kinds of bat facts. It lets you know that bats are nothing to fear and even shows you how to make a bat house in the back of the book. Did you know that bats are the only flying animals that nurse their young? Bat "pups" hang together in large groups called nurseries and each mother returns at least twice during the night to feed her little pup. Did you know that there is a bat in Australia that has a six foot wing span? I didn't until I read this book...don't worry they eat fruit! I liked bats before...now I like them even more.

River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (Science Masters Series) - book cover picture

I am amazed by Dawkins' ability to write in so many different and interesting ways about one topic. This book is filled with his usual intellectually satisfying arguments for evolution. In addition, he touches on issues related to the philosophy of science, and even on issues related to "meaning." I was amazed at my feelings of complete satisfaction, even as Dawkins was saying that the Universe has no meaning or purpose (in the way that we think meaning and purpose). If you have never read any books written by Dawkins, you should at least give this one a try. This book is short, has much less technical jargon than his other books, and, in my opinion, pretty much sums up what Richard Dawkins stands for.

In This House of Brede - book cover picture

I recently picked up a new copy of this book (having ruined the bindings of two pb copies with frequent re-reading) and found that I was as impressed with it as I had been on first reading. The struggles that Phillipa goes through to become true nun resonate with the struggles that mature women go through to accept outside constraints. While I would never make the choices for my life that she did, I understand her completely. Godden takes the reader inside her and her fellow nuns and helps us know who they are.
This is one of my favorite all-time books.

Manic Depressive Syndrome

His Bright Light - book cover picture

I unfortunately have not had a chance to read this book, but I find it absurd that it takes the death of a relatively famous person's son to open society's eyes to Manic Depressive syndrome. After reading all 37 reviews, I relaized still, that most of these reviews deal with Nick Traina and Manic Depressive syndrome and not the world and Manic Depressive syndrome. I love Nick Traina's music even though he's 1 year gone. What I don't understand is why this is still a hush hush problem. Do something about it!! Instead of sitting back and watching people rot away inside. Awareness saves! Nick's music will always live on, no matter what and he's in a better place now. RIP NICK!!

Lessons in Living - book cover picture

As a buddhist, I was a little bit turned off by the author's relating to God. But after the first few chapters I began to like the book. It really soothed my mind and uplisted my soul. I particularly like the Living Love Chapter (partly because at this point in my life I can very well relate to that). The sharing truth of life in the book did calm me down emotionally.
It seems no matter what religion we hold the basic concept of living a good life is all the same. The difference might just lie in the approach in each doctrine.

Overall I would recommend this book especially to those in need of a life recess. To stop, rethink and reevaluate our being and our lives.
