My Friend and I - book cover picture

Lisa Jahn-Clough's "My Friend and I" is a delightful picturebook! It's a sweet, sincere story: two children meet, play together, fight over a toy, miss each other, and make up. The illustrations are bursting with enthusiasm and bright colors, perfectly complementing the simple, straightforward text. The children have great energy and emotive personalities. I like that there are no grown-ups in the story; the children get to resolve their problems by themselves. I especially love the ending, which really made me laugh!

Intuitive Eating : A Recovery Book For The Chronic Dieter; Rediscover The Pleasures Of Eating And Rebuild Your Body Image - book cover picture

I didn't buy this book because I wanted to lose weight. I am an athlete who is at an ideal weight, but I was so strict with my eating that I had become obsessed with food. Daily weighing along with counting calories, protien, and carbs consumed a good portion of my days. The need to eat so perfectly inevitably led to uncontrollable binges about once a week. I bought this book because I wanted to lead a more normal life, where food didn't consume my thoughts and define the success or failure of a day. The principles in the book are completely logical and the authors are good to back up their theories with plenty of empirical data. They clearly lay out why it is so crucial to abandon the diet mentality in order to stabilize or lose weight. I now know that no food is off limits anymore and I am becoming more in tune to what my body is telling me it needs. No more binging, weighing or number crunching. Freedom at last!

The Foster's Market Cookbook : Favorite Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night - book cover picture

I just received Sara Foster's cookbook for my birthday and I have already made several of the recipes and each one turned out fantastic! One thing I loved immediately about this cookbook is the number of recipes! You certainly get your bang for your buck with this book. There are such an array of recipes from appetizers to soups (lots of really good soup recipes), to vinigarettes, to dressings, to entrees and desserts, any cook cannot be disappointed with this book.

I read the review before me and I have to say that I just made the Roasted Pork Tenderloin with dried cherry sauce myself and I thought it tasted wonderful. I often have difficulty keeping pork moist when I cook it but I definitely didn't have that problem with this recipe!

I cannot wait to make some of the desserts as well. Everything looks so good and relatively easy to make!! A great cookbook for anyone!

Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health (Revised Edition) - book cover picture

This book is wonderful. Toni Weschler arms women with all the information that they need to achieve pregnancy. My husband and I had tried to become pregnant for over a year, and this book helped us gain a clear picture of our fertility. I'm happy to say that we now have a 20 month old, largely due to the information in this book. We will be using it again for baby #2. This book is invaluable for women who have "unexpained infertility", which two doctors said I had. What I actually had was a long cycle (many doctors can't deal with anything other than a 28 day cycle), and once we figured that out with the tools in this book, we were pregnant in no time!I hope this book helps others realize their dream of becoming parents!

Tryin' To Sleep In The Bed You Made - book cover picture

The duo team has done it again!!! This is the 2nd book that I have read by these authors. I read, "Better Than I Know Myself", which is also a great read.

The book opens in the future and sets the scene as to what has happened to these two friends, Gayle and Pat. Then, it goes to the beginning of the friendship and describes how they became friends. Gayle, who grew-up with two loving parents, was given every thing she could ever want or need. Pat, whose mother abandoned her, had to struggle for the things she needed. Their friendship evolved when Pat moves in with Gayle's family. In addition, Marcus is introduced as one of the main characters after a tragedy binds the three of them in that moment in time.

This book will make you cheer for these characters as their character flaws are exposed and they struggle to overcome them. It is a story about friendship, love, and self-realization.

Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down!!!!

Simply my favorite Buddhist text

The Holy Teaching of Vimalakirti: A Mahayana Scripture - book cover picture

I agree with many of the other reviewers in this space. This sutra is quite simply my favorite Buddhist text, and Prof Thurman's translation is my favorite translation. I travel with this book because it is so compact and precise in describing the way of the Bodhisattva, the great vehicle of the Mahayana path. I have heard Prof Thurman read from his book, and his transmission is no small contribution to the progress of Buddhism in the West.

Several reviewers have mentioned the humor. I have fond memories of reading this text out loud to my fellow dharma students, and having a good laugh each time a disciple sheepishly declines Lord Buddha's invitation to go visit the ailing bodhisattva, Vilmalakirti. The replies of Vimalakirti, on the other hand, are the highest wisdom I know of in Buddhism, and reflecting on them is a great treasure.

The sum of all fears - book cover picture

This is the 5th book in the "Ryanverse" and this time an Israeli nuke is missing. A militant Arab terrorist group finds the missing nuke and reworks it into a usable weapon. At the end of Clear and Present Danger, J. Robert Fowler is elected President and he is in the Oval Office at the time of this story. It's clear that he and Ryan aren't too fond of each other and his National Security Advisor, Elizabeth Elliot (who is Fowler's personal Monica Lewinsky) flat out can't stand Jack. Elliot is one of those characters that you would like to choke if you had the ability, but that keeps you into the book. Certainly the nuclear bomb and the intended use of it is the main plot, but Clancy uses the secondary storyline (the President and Elliot trying to force Ryan out) to keep the pages turning. All in all, another classic Clancy. The final stages of the book are absolutely incredible, as has been the case with every Jack Ryan book I have read thus far. I'm sure the trend continues!

Excellent Historical Fiction. It Sets The Standard.

War and Remembrance - book cover picture

This book and its team-mate, The Winds of War, set extraordinarily high standards for historical fiction. The coverage of major war events is stupendous, and the intertwined fictional tale -- Warren's death at Midway, Pug's eventual marriage to Pamela, Natalie's horrible imprisonment and bare survival of Auschwitz, Dr. Jastrow's death in the gas chamber, Carter Aster's drowning in a heroic act to save his boat, Leslie Slote's victory over cowardice and death as a Jedburg commando -- all make for a riveting adventure. Enjoy.

Xxx: A Woman's Right to Pornography - book cover picture

Wendy McElroy did an excellent job writing this expose about the adult entertainment industry. Her in depth interviews with adult film actresses, producers and directors rebuffs accusations by pro-cencorship forces that the adult entertainment industry is an enslaver of women, encourages rape (she herself was a rape victim) and that women who work in the industry are "victims of patriarchial oppression" or are "psychologically damaged". McElroy rightfully points out that adult entertainment empowers women since they can earn millions of dollars working in this industry and be featured as the main stars of the films or clubs they perform in. If your curious as to all of the controversy surrounding adult entertainment, read this book. It certainly is an eye opener and a good read at that. ....
