Like a lexicon of modern warfare

Red Storm Rising (Tom Clancy) - book cover picture

This book was one of my first "bigger", english, reading experience. I would say it's a lexicon of modern warfare, but written as a terrifying novel. In my opinion, the big difficulty of discribing a whole world war as a novel is that the protagonist can act only at one place at the same time, whereas a world war has more important events at the same moment(because of all branches of military service). Tom Clancy solved this problem in an elegant way. He switchs the scene, for instance, from the battleship captian, fighting submarines at the Atlantic, to the fighterwing commander, who stops the first wave of russian bombers heading towards germany, and so on. This style of describing the war leads the reader through various stories, which give you a picture of the whole war.

The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program : A Personalized Plan for Becoming Slim, Fit and Healthy in Your 40s, 50s, 60s and Beyond - book cover picture

Eat, feel bad, diet and then make more charges to my credit cards (with money I didn't have). I can now admit it: carbohydrates and plastic were my two addictions. The Hellers laid out a simple plan to put an end to the carbo cravings and a signicant weight loss followed. My sister-in-law gave me another book by Nancy Lloyd called "SIMPLE MONEY SOLUTIONS" for cutting the credit card addiction. It showed me how to stop yo-yo money dieting. My debt and weight are now both under control and I could not have done it without the Hellers and Nancy Lloyd. God bless all three of them!

Phenomenal. One of the Master's best.


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

This story of a provincial actor forced by circumstances to play the role of the Solar System's most broad-minded statesman is perhaps Heinlein's most under-rated novel, even though it has sold millions of copies and won the Hugo. A true actor, Lorenzo manages to become the role -- expanding his own horizons as well. In his epiphany, he starts with the only principle he ever subscribed to -- "the show must go on" -- and follows it to include all fair-dealing and professional ethics, and continues until he reaches eternal truths and a philosophical outlook. The scene is a marvel of thought and emotion (and not a bad start for a personal philosophy). His depictions of actors, politicians, and modern monarchy all ring true. (Gee, and I didn't even mention the kidnapping, murders, dirty politics, rockets, death rays, and Martians!)

Excellent for the layperson, etc


Book title: Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary - book cover picture

It works great for the layperson or Bible student who just wants to know what the scholars say, without all the detailing and discussion. It offers (usually, I think) multiple opinions, when they exist, about what something may mean, etc. It compares/contrasts well, gives overviews of background info and is very concise. If one reads the preface, it says that it is for the layperson. It claims to have retained the "important imperitive material...without the text of the NIV and the detailed scholarly notes and discussions." It serves the purpose set forth in the Preface and makes an excellent reference as well as excellent springboard into Biblical research for college/university students and people preparing Bible studies/lessons. For this reason, this layperson/student gives it 5 stars!

The Face of Battle : A Study of Agincourt, Waterloo, and the Somme - book cover picture

This is one of the classics of military history. It made Keegan's reputation now and forever. He takes three battles, from three different eras, and dissects them to understand what it would have been like to be there, to help the reader understand the experience of warfare.It is not only excellent history, it is also excellent writing. I cannot believe anyone could read it without being moved by it. It works on the heart as well as the head. It is the compassion, the humanity, that raises the book above the others in its field.Just wonderful.

Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom : Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing - book cover picture

This book stands as a true watershed--finally, there exists a resource for women who want to find a balance between Eastern and Western medicine, between their bodies and their minds, between their power as women and their place as humans. I highly recommend this book for anyone (not just women!) struggling to find health and healing in a manner that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of medical convention. I also recommend that it be read cover to cover, as each chapter offers insight into the profound processes of the body and its care. Dr. Northrup truly makes all the difference for women everywhere with her remarkable synthesis and insight into women's bodies and wisdom!

Girl With a Pearl Earring - book cover picture

WOW! What an exceptional masterpiece! I loved that book so much i'm aiming to read it more than a couple of times. I can't even move on to another book because all i can think about is "Girl with a Pearl Earring". IT IS BY FAR THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I LOVE IT SOOOO MUCH. I even purchased the painting (which is framed in my room) and I also purchased the movie with Collin Firth (who by the way did a FANTASTIC job playing Vermeer, who i found as my FAVORITE character in the movie). APPLAUSE TO CHEVALIER WHO HAS DONE SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB ON THIS HEART LIFTING NOVEL.

Fresh Air Fiend: Travel Writings - book cover picture

Paul Theroux is one of only a few writers for whom I will immediately buy their new hardcovers based on name only, with great anticipation. This one does not disappoint, and I'd rate it right up there with my favorites of his, "My Other Life" and "Sunrise With Seamonsters." His writing on how to travel and how to write and thus how to live one's life is outstanding and inspiring, including the fact that he wrote "The Great Railway Bazaar" in the four months that the train trip took.

Heart and Soul of Nick Carter - book cover picture

I bought Jane's book last year, but actually haven't had any time to review it. Now I do and I can't wait! This is, honestly, one of the best biographies I've ever read. I love biographies, and I know when I see a good one. This book is so easy to read I guarantee you'll do it in less than 2 hours. I even did that! And my mother language is Spanish, not English. Besides, it's not only about Nick. Jane gives you the full scoope on the Carter family, their way of living, to conquer goals and more! When I read it... I just though of my mom. And if you really pay attention to it, you'll see why Nick came out the way he is! That's what YOU call a perfect fan! Congratulations Jane! P.S. Any chance of writing another one about the other boys? ~*HUGS*~

Patients as Victims: Sexual Abuse in Psychotherapy and Counselling - book cover picture

Derek Jehu's authoritative study of sexual abuse in psychotherapy offers much hope to those who have undergone such a traumatic event. The book is clearly for clinicians and students but remains accessible to anyone trying to understand the process of therapy abuse. Professor Jehu validates the experiences of abused clients/patients with a rare understanding and gives a much needed credibility to the suffering endured by victims. Throughout the book the reader is made unequivocally aware of the responsibilities therapists have towards their clients and that at no time can a client/patient be seen to have manipulated the situation. Writing within his profession brings even greater credence and I would thouroughly recommend that this book becomes a standard text-book for everyone entering the therapeutic profession
