The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby from Birth to Age Two (Revised and Updated Edition) - book cover picture

This book is really excellent at helping guide you through all stages of the first two years. My daughter is 18 months old and I still look at it regularly for nutrition, milestones and health advice. Some people may find the notion of "attachment parenting" too much, but my baby responded to it really well. We did not, however, follow the family sleeping advice, but that is really the only thing that wasn't for us.

Even if the philosophy is not up your street, the practical chapters on feeding and eating and the excellent sections on treating illnesses and injuries are reason enough to own this book.

Overall, Dr. Sears believes in getting to know your baby before you decide on how to meet his or her needs, which I believe is the best advice anyone will ever give you.

Another fine Tintin adventure

The Broken Ear (Adventures of Tintin) - book cover picture

I've enjoyed the Adventures of Tintin series since I was a child. The combination of good art, interesting plots, and local detail which looked (to my untravelled eye) authentic, got and kept my attention through all 21 titles in the series.In _The Broken Ear_, Tintin investigates the theft from a museum of a small statue with a broken ear. His investigations take him to South America, where the rain forest tribe that originally made the statue lives.Unlike some of Tintin's adventures, which have fantastic or science fictional elements, this is a pure mystery / adventure comic which I highly recommend.If you like the Adventures of Tintin, you may also enjoy the Asterix series, by Goscinny and Uderzo.

A great way to start the alien novels

Book title: Earth Hive (Aliens, Book 1)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Earth Hive (Aliens, Book 1) - book cover picture

As my title implies, this should be the first book you read in the alien series. Earth Hive sets the stage for the two books that dirrectly follow it, Nightmare Asylum and the Female War, as well as every other alien book written by the other authors. In this book, explanation of how the Earth became completely overrun by the xenos is given. Remember the creature who became victom to the aliens in the first movie? The big elephant like creature in the chair abord the derelict spacecraft. Well this book goes into what he is and how their kind plays into this story. This is a great book, and should be read before any of the other alien books in my opinion.

A great telling of a mother and daughter relationship

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood : A Novel - book cover picture

I enjoyed this book very much. I felt that the author really captured the emotions and personallities of the charactors, but she did not go to overboard. There was still enough left unexplained for the reader to fill in their own way. I enjoyed all parts of this book. That of when the mother, Vivi, was a child, when the daughter, Sidda, was growing up. And that of the present. All three parts showed how life was for that group of people(rich white southerners) at a specific time. The only thing that i think could have possibley made this book better would have been if there was more of a destinction between when the time period changed. Occasionaly I found myself not sure of when Ms. Wells was refering to, but it isn't the worst thing, and it can be tolarated. I have heard there is a pre-quill to this book, and i look foward to reading it.

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night (Picture Puffin S.) - book cover picture

Antonio's story evolves entertainingly as he plays off the behavior of his captors. His growing confidence builds the energy of the story. When our family read this together, we could just imagine it being great fun to stage the action for children. The interruptions of the brigands make the story lively, but a little confusing at times. It helps to use different voices for the primary characters (Antonio and the Chief) and the narration.

Truly a story of determination and inspiration

Book title: The Apostle
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Apostle - book cover picture

The Apostle is the story of a Souther Baptist preacher who has to struggle through the Hell of his own creation. He does bad things, but is not a bad man. It explores the human side of men of the cloth and how they, too, have faults, temptations, and struggles just like you and me. In a short time span, you see Sonny (Duvall) lose the three things on this planet he loves most: his wife, his kids, and his ministry. As he picks up the pieces of his life, he comes across and befriends (mostly) more people that he begins to hold dear.This is Billy Bob Thornton's best performance ever. Ironically, it's also the smallest role in recent memory for Thornton. Proving that it's quality, not quantity, Thornton's presence is ominous and is worty of an Oscar.Without giving too much away, this heartwarming inspriation of a movie should be on EVERYONE'S movie collection.

Ingenious Historical Fiction

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio CD
The Plot Against America : A Novel - book cover picture

This talented author takes his own childhood and concocts a brilliantly executed scenario depicting how the world might have ended up under different circumstances surrounding WWII. The "Greatest Generation" is put to a test in this imagined conspiracy theory to put an Anti-Semite into the White House as a pawn for Hitler.

Loaded with fascinating detail based on actual historical figures and events, this clever and engaging novel is also heartbreakingly poignant at times and especially relevant in the time of war and suspicion in which the world is currently living today.

John McPhee remains the master of the long essay

Book title: The Pine Barrens
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Pine Barrens - book cover picture

I've read many McPhee books, and found that this early effort is just another example of his mastery of the form. He can make just about anything fascinating, because he himself projects an endless curiosity, love of diverse humanity, and a writing talent that is matched by very few (e.g. Trillin). This is an examination, twenty-five years ago, of the wilderness area in the south of New Jersey, of all places, its history, geography, and its people. Who cares? You will, after you've read this book.

An outstanding introductory text in statistics.

Book title: Student Handbook for Fundamental Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences

Binding: Paperback
Student Handbook for Fundamental Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences - book cover picture

This text is the most clearly written and useful of four different introductory statistics texts that I have examined. Its emphasis on insight rather than rote learning of formulae makes the subject easily understood and retained. This book is a "keeper". The author stresses the use of computers discusses several statistics programs available. He also thoughtfully provides exercise data for input to several a computer program. It is unfortunate, however, that he failed to mention the most powerful of these programs on the market today. I hope that he will examine this in future editions.
