The Gift of Fear : Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence - book cover picture

In the Gift Of Fear, de Becker provides us insight into our own abilities to avoid potentially dangerous situations. He gives us permission to listen to and hear our intuition. Every person who has been victimized wants to know how they could have avoided being a victim, de Becker provides some knowledgeable insight. Yet, he does not blame the victims of crime for failing to listen, the blame belongs to our culture and the paternalistic minimizing of intuition as merely "inconsequential...feminine stuff." As a crime victim advocate for more than 22 years, I highly recommend this book, not only to crime victims and survivors, but to those who want more tools to minimize their chance of being victims. Further, I highly recommend this book to men who want to end our culture of male violence and who want to understand how they can help the women they love, and ultimately all of us, to be safer.

Stolen Thunder: A Norse Myth - book cover picture

I bought this book for my 3 year old son who loves Thor. This book is very beautifully illustrated and the story itself is quite amusing. Thor (the Norse god of thunder)had his magic hammer stolen by a giant. In order to get it back the trickster god Loki comes up with a plan for Thor to pretend he is the beautiful goddess Frejya in order to trick the giant(and get his hammer back). This is a good story for both boys and girls and is not scary to read to young children. I explained to my son not to be afraid of real thunder as it is only Thor up in the sky protecting everyone (and this story really helped to drive that point home). He is no longer afraid of thunder during a storm.

The Eagles' Brood (Camulod Chronicles) - book cover picture

OUTSTANDING!Mr. Whyte makes you feel like you are in the story. It's being there. This is storytelling at its very best. The plot, the characters, the pace, the detail, are all perfect. Can you tell I liked it? I do feel that one should read the series in order to get the full impact of the story. It does, after all, begin with SKYSTONE. This book kept me up late several nights simply because I couldn't leave it alone. The plot is rich with history and details that make you want to read more about the time this occurred. The characters are fully developed and have personalities (seen through the eyes of the storyteller) that are colorful and have a depth that makes them real people: you know them. You care for them and what happens to them. This is a magnificent saga. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys history, historical fiction, or just a real good story.

A life that reads like fiction


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

This is a much more satisfying book than Byrd's previous book, Jefferson, and part of the reason is that Andrew Jackson the man was more complex, contradictory, extroverted, extreme and unpredictable than his near contemporary. Jackson's life has provided material for a lot of historical fiction, but none that I have read approach the subject in such a detailed and interesting way. His life is laid before the reader piece by piece, like a puzzle. The narrator, a man hired to write a campaign biography, must learn about Jackson by interviewing his friends and enemies and engages in an investigation to find the truth about certain Jackson myths that fully involves the reader's attention. Better than a detective story and more satisfying than a head on biography, this book captures the spirit Jackson's times and leaves one with the sense of having experienced a real piece of history.

The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design - book cover picture

Or in some cases, haven't even read.The arguments in this book are unassailable. But if you haven't read it or didn't understand it, you wouldn't know this, would you? This is the best explanation of why we exist that has been written. Some people may dislike the truth that emerges in such a clear, logical step-by-step analysis of all the evidence available, but wanting something to be wrong doesn't make it untrue. The hallmark of rationality is being able to explain where you come from. Read this book.

Men, Women and Relationships (Harperspotlight) - book cover picture

My wife and I divorced in 1995. We were apart for two years. Situations in our life kept bringing us back together to deal with children. Eventually we decided to try to put our marriage back together so we went to Christian counseling. Our counselor had us read this book. Time after time my jaw would drop open while reading. My wife said the same thing. I remember saying, "She isn't crazy afterall. Our differences are normal." Both our eyes were opened allowing us to accept our differences without feeling the other one did not care of love the other. This book along with our desire to do God's will was the basis for our putting our marriage back together. We remarried after 2-1/2 years apart. That was six years ago. I buy this book regularly to give to couples old and young alike. It is a Godsend for a society too quick to divorce and too misunderstanding of one another.

The Leadership Solution: Say It Do It - book cover picture

Jim Shaffer, in this work, really connected the dots for me! His premise, that it all starts with effective communications, is dead on! As a former CEO and whose time is now spent as an outside director for a number of companies and as counselor to large company CEOs, this work is both relevant for today's leaders in today's warp speed economy and timeless in its approach. Shaffer has crafted a very readable, yet content rich handbook for anyone either presently running a company or with dreams to someday run one! (In fact, this work is an excellent handbook for CEOs wanting to develop "bench strength" on the management team. Simply use Leadership Solutions as the textbook for a company-run academy for those up and comers selected for bigger jobs in the company's future. So many books are long on theory, short on application. Shaffer's approach is exceptionally practical...and applicable. It can be reread time and again.

The Womanly art of breastfeeding - book cover picture

My sister-in-law sent me this book when I was pregnant with my first child 28 years ago. I read and used this book through the pregnancies and infancies of both of my children. It proved to be a great help for me. I was 18 and uninformed about many things relating to breastfeeding. This book was a godsend! Breastfeeding is wonderful and I encouraged all my friends and family to try. The feeling is undescribable. Needless to say I no longer need the book, but I loaned my copy and it was never returned. I ordered two, one for a friend's daughter and one for me. If I ever get to be a grandmother I will give it to my daughter-in-law or daughter.

The Pulitzer Prize was long overdue


Book title: Annals of the Former World

Binding: Hardcover
Annals of the Former World - book cover picture

John McPhee has re-written the book on non-fiction, turning science and history into one gripping drama after another in writing that brings to mind the finest Sunday newspaper features. No matter the subject, he's set the standard by which others should be measured; the Pulitzer committee couldn't have chosen better. It's especially proper that this book be so honored, as it represents a body of work spanning many years and concerning what I suspect is McPhee's very favorite subject matter; geology and natural history. Call it his "life achievement award" but don't tell him that (we need him to keep writing for ages to come). John, I've got a shelf set aside just for your books in my library but it's half empty all the time - I can't stop lending them out.
