Troubleshooting Marine Diesels - book cover picture

Wow.........Ok so recently I bought an excavator with some engine trouble,not a sailboat and am and a complete novice at all things related to diesel engines,this book is one of three that I bought , its very easy to understand and the illustrations are fantastic the layout is also very plesant. I read lots of technical books on many different subjects and this book has to be one of the most thought out in terms of explaning a complicated subject to some one with little to no experience,in mantaining an engine. If you had no interest in diesel engines this would still make an excellent coffee table book , as you could read it for a few minutes and learn something or just brouse the lovely pictures. I am thinking of getting a few more copies to give as gifts . thanks

A Classic Classic

My Antonia - book cover picture

If all novels were written this well TV never would have gotten ahold of American society.This is one of the most romantic love stories I have ever read, and nary a kiss was had! Cather's beautiful flowing writing adds to the flowing beauty of the plains and her characters.As romantic as this novel is, it is not a chic book. It captures the times and people of a bygone era in wonderful and unrivalled prose.

This book does present evidence

Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush - book cover picture

Earlier reviewers say the book does not present evidence. In fact, the book is well documented and readers can easily go out and find original materials. For example, consider the example of Bush saying in September 2002 that he had a current IAEA report that said Saddam was six months from nucs. No such report exists. The book documents Milbank's original article "For Bush, Facts are Malleable."The best the Bush people came up with to explain this mistake that there was one pre-Gulf War One report (1998) that said Saddam might be developing usable nucs. So that was Bush's idea of a "new and current" source of info? Aw heck, say Bush supporters, anyone can make a tiny booboo like that when outlining the reasons for a war.Bush lied or grossly mislead us or was too stupid to know what he was saying. Take your pick.

Book title: Prey

Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Prey - book cover picture

I read the first part in Borders and figured I may as well by the thing. Took it to Starbucks the next day and polished the rest off. Crichton does not relent and takes you nonstop through the world of nanontechnology. You are still kept guessing up until the last act, but smart readers will probably figure out what is happening before hand. Nonetheless there are enough surprises, relevations, and crichton's signature "technology excerpts" to keep you going and make you feel involved and understand the nature of the technology the characters are against.Highly recommended.

Truth and Non-Violence as delivered in Gandhi's own words


Book title: Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments With Truth
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments With Truth - book cover picture

Gandhi changed the way the world thinks. His life and message for the world has influenced MLK's fight for civil rights in the USA. Gandhi revolutionized the fight for freedom. All revolutionary wars before India's independence were fought by using brute force. Gandhi used Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" as the basis for India's fight for freedom from over 200 years of British rule. In Gandhi's own words, the reader is given a truthful account of the man who gave his life so that the posterity of Indians could enjoy what his own ancestors had not. Gandhi's fervent devotion to truth can be seen in his description of many details that one would find embarassing and awkward, but Gandhi does not leave out any minor detail. His honesty and philosophy is one capable of moving the citizen, whether he be an Indian, American, or of any other country.

A book which can captivate the reader long-term.


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

This book can put the unwitting reader through a process in which he is first spellbound (1st reading), then hooked (next several readings). This is followed by continued fascination with a touch of embarassment (which may include replacement of the worn-out paperback). If this continues, you end up here, reading the reviews of others. One can even proceed further and find similarities between Trevanian and the mauve-carded Hel. Try doing a web search on Trevanian (who may be one Rodney Whitacker) and see what I mean.

Monster (Coretta Scott King Author Honor Books) - book cover picture

Even though I didn't want to read yet another book about ayoung African American male in trouble with the law, I found thisstory compelling and difficult to put down. I read it quickly and wanted to discuss it with others who had read it. If I could, I would teach this novel for the purposes of not only talking about peer pressure and crime, but to explore the criminal justice system and how it impacts young African American males. This book shares similarities with other good works on the same topic: they include Sanyika Shakur's Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member, Nathan McCall's Makes Me Wanna Holler, and Joseph Marshall's Street Soldier. All of them deal with the plight of young African males growing up in the inner city.

Thoughtful and funnier than the rest

Men at Arms (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

OK, so some of his books are not as funny as the others. So what ? "Men At Arms" sees Pratchett back with a vengeance, "extracting the urine" again with the style and wit he's gotten us used to. Shrewd as ever, he manages yet again to make the reader think twice ( or thrice, for that matter ) about the pool of cliches we wallow in, as well as to make us laugh like we did with Reaper Man or Witches Abroad. Pratchett also tears to shreds that silly notion that guns are something to be desired - hey, even the Guild of Assassins hate them ! - and, as always, pulls off a funny/teary eyed ending he's known for. A great book for those facial muscles you haven't exercised in so long - read it before someone else does and starts quoting from it.

Stop the madness

Bridge of Birds : A Novel of an Ancient China That Never Was - book cover picture

As a member of PETA I was appalled when I saw the title of this book. How many helpless innocent birds would have to be slaughtered to actually build a functional bridge? Well one is one to many as far as I'm concerned. We are the caretakers of this planet and its inhabitants not the "masters" to do with the rest of earth's inhabitants as we see fit.
Anyway this book does not promote abusing animals in any way shape or form (although some trees were killed to create the book). It is very well written and funny. I liked it a lot but I suggest we start a petition requesting that the author change the title of the book to something more acceptable. Like maybe "Bridge of artificial birds that in no way harmed a real bird in its making".
