Ben and Me - book cover picture

Ben and Me is a delightful biography of Benjamin Franklin written by Robert Lawson. The novel is marvelous for children. It is educational. It teaches a lot about the founding of the country and mainly about one of the men who made it possible. Ben and Me is fabulously entertaining. Amos's own adventures are thrilling, and his stories about Ben are hilarious. Any child or adult with a sense of humor will laugh at this book. Anyone who reads this book will learn while laughing. Robert Lawson was the author and illustrator of many great children's books, but Ben and Me was probably the best, and it will be around for many years to come.

Rules of Play : Game Design Fundamentals - book cover picture

According to a lot of the bad reviews, it sounds like you are trying to make this out to be a video game design book... but it's not, it's a book on game design in general, NOT JUST video games. Video games are a manifestation of the category of games. Readers of this text MUST be aware that this is not a narrow visioned book like most video game design books, it talks about a whole lot more. But because it does, it can't go into specifics on video games... which you can get in other books that disgruntled readers are mentioning. Overall, you must understand the focus and aim of this book to appreciate it. And intellectually stimulating? VERY! This book not only teaches you games but makes you rake your brain while at it, questions the fundamentals of most games you played as a child. Very intersting.

A little book with a big message - about change.

Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life - book cover picture

At the end of the book one of the characters asks a group of others how many of them are afraid of change? A few people raise their hands. Then the character asks of the others how many know someone else who is afraid of change? Everyone raises a hand. So it is with this book. Everyone I know who has read it (including myself) says, "Well this is true, but not really applicable to me." Then you will immediatley buy more copies, or pass yours on to someone else. ;-) It's a good, insightful little book with an valuable message you will not soon forget.

Gallow's View (Inspector Banks Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Inspector Alan Banks took a job in the small village of Eastvale after tiring of working in London but even in this picturesque village there are crimes. A Peeping Tom and a pair of burglars are bad enough but when an elderly woman is murdered in an apparent robbery attempt, Inspector Banks and his team of investigators race to find the culprits before others are killed. Inspector Banks is a likable character and the book nicely balances his home life with solving murders. This is the first book in a series that continues to improve with each novel.

The Hollywood Book of Scandals : The Shocking, Often Disgraceful Deeds and Affairs of Over 100 American Movie and TV Idols - book cover picture

Jim Parish is one of the most prolific writers about Hollywood on the scene. There's a reason for that: he has a wealth of information. He leaves no stone unturned in his search to bring his readers absolutely the most honest version of Hollywood's most infamous events...events which shaped our culture. In this book, Parish has done it again, bringing new information where you would have thought the well was dry years ago. The guy is incredible.

One Nation: America Remembers September 11, 2001 - book cover picture

A worthy tribute. Be prepared, however, to open up this book and be taken right back to the shock, grief and pain of September 11. It is hard to believe that we lived through it, and the book is a way to further absorb some of these huge events at whatever pace is right for you. Amazing photos taken inside the World Trade Center during the evacuation, as well as the heroic rescue workers (including the canine heros). Nothing overly graphic. Very well put together, as we would expect from Life Magazine.

A message that most westerners haven't yet realized...

Manifest Your Destiny: The Nine Spiritual Principles for Getting Everything You Want - book cover picture

This is an incredible book that cuts every fluff down and explains the key points to the reader. One of the greatest things I have learned from this book is that God (the Infinite Intelligence) is not outside of us. Rather it is connected to us. In fact, this powerful Godforce is within us. Most religions (especially in western culture) have created the shameful idea that God is somewhere out there and we must do things in order to get its approval. This way of living is from the ego. Rather accept that you are God from the spirit and you will begin to see your desires and dreams manifesting into reality. Remember, instead of begging and praying for things to happen, begin to affirm with faith and soon you will begin to create miracles in your life. May you continually experience and become aware of this powerful organizing intelligence within you...

Outcast of Redwall (Redwall, Book 8) - book cover picture

Although I have not yet read Legend of Luke, I still think The Outcast of Redwall is his best. It was a story of true friendship entwined with one of pure hatred. Sunflash the Mace the badgerlord of Salomdastron VS Swartt Six claw warlord of a mighty horde of vermin, not to mention Swartt's lost child Veil. This book has it all friends, foes, wars, peace, joy, sadness, banquets, famine, and even some gardening. All in all this book ROCKED!

Ender's Shadow (Ender) - book cover picture

Ender's Shadow is a parallel novel to Ender's Game, NOT A SEQUEL. Simply a story set in the same time from a different point of view, Ender's right hand man, Bean. This shows the ever so loyal EG readers that Peter isn't the only bad guy out there. Not to mention the fact that Bean had a much harder life than Ender could ever imagine, much less experience. Contrary to a somewhat common belief, Bean didn't grow up like Ender. He grew up on the streets, in a horrible life not meant for any kid, or man. The book definatly goes much more into detail about Beans talents and gifts, while spouting off extremly interesting philosophy about human life. Amongst all of this bean is in a never ending struggle of good, bad, right, and wrong. Over all i think that Orsen Scott Card did a GREAT job on this novel and would love to see a continuing saga on Bean alone. Great novel, go out and by everything by OSC and make him extremly rich. Five thumbs up

Good Book, More Real Character Depth

The Beast Within (Gabriel Knight supernatural mystery series book 2) - book cover picture

I loved this book. It provides a clear insight into the characters; they seem more real. She departs from the monotony of following the game script and delves into the real plot and how it affects the character. Gabriel and Grace are real people with real problems and character flaws. The main female character is strong and intelligent, a rarity in the literary world, and contributes to a large portion of solving the mystery despite the fact she is not the "titled character".I hope to read more adventures of Grace and Gabriel without the need of a game. I find myself drawn to their plight and would like to see a novelization of the third game, and further novels of their adventures with each other and the occult.
