Kick Ass - book cover picture

The Bride wore a .44 by Maggie Shane was a terrific story about a very unusual wedding situation. I haven't read Maggie Shane before but I will definitely be looking for more books by her after this story.

The Incredible Misadventures of Boo and the Boy Blunder by MaryJanice Davidson was another great story. It's set loosely in her "Undead and Unwed" universe and is a wonderfully original story and laugh out loud funny as well. Loved the Boy Blunder!

Warfem by Angela Knight is a steamy, fantastic story set in a time of genetically engineered warriors. I love Baird and Alina is a wonderful, kick ass heroine, and Galar is terrific! A sweet as well as sexy story.

Painkillers by Jacey Ford is about a supermodel/ spy on assignment on a tropical island.

This is an excellent anthology. Kick Ass lives up to its title!

Time Tactics of Very Successful People - book cover picture

I've had this book for many years, probably since 1995 or 96. When I first read it, I would have given it a decent, but not overwhelming review - it seemed obvious and basic. But having lived, suffered (like all humanity!), and thought for the last decade, after re-reading it, let me tell you - it is simply a book of genius. And its genius IS in its simplicity and its completeness. You cannot do better than this in this field. That's the good news. The bad news is you cannot appreciate how good it is until you've lived a little, thought a lot, and have some of the other tripe that's out there to compare it to. And to think I almost gave it away after that first reading! Save it, you who don't like it now, read it again in 5-10 years, if you're lucky enough to be around. Godspeed!

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Cabling


Book title: The Cabling Handbook
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Cabling Handbook - book cover picture

This is truly a handbook; it covers all aspects of cabling from design and planning to installation and maintenance. The second edition also includes comprehensive discussions of wireless and home networks, to name just a couple of topics included in the new "Future Directions" section. Of particular interest to the residential user is a clear, concise comparison of DSLs and cable access to the Internet. Sidebars encapsulate such complex issues as wireless messaging (what we can expect in the near future) and the merging of cell phones and the Palm Pilot operating system. Home networking is fully addressed, with practical information on Ethernet, phone line, and wireless communication configurations and an at-a-glance comparison of the three methods in terms of speed, cost, and best uses that will help both computer professionals and novices.

Benet's Reader's Encyclopedia : Fourth Edition (Benet's Reader's Encyclopedia) - book cover picture

Unlike the correspondent from San Merino below, I love the non-literary historical and political entries and details. I have found this to be the ultimate source for brushing up on cross-references in books. I've found it most useful when something I'm reading refers to history or another literary work--but I'm momentarily stumped on the details of the reference. Much more efficient to look it up in Benet's than to wander through the library hoping a quickly-glimpsed spine will trigger a memory.

Very Well done!


Book title: The Rule of Four

Binding: Paperback
The Rule of Four - book cover picture

I came to this book in an unusual way: I knew nothing of the "Da Vinci" code comparasions, and probably for this reason I enjoyed it. A Princeton Senior is the main character in this thriller that is more like the academic part of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" than "Code." The writing is excellent and the plot is well thought out, like McCrae's "Bark of the Dogwood" or possibly some of Grisham's books. But then, that's just my opinion. Read it for yourself--it's fun, not too long, and goes quickly.

Another Successful and Funny Simpson's Spin-Off


Book title: Bart Simpson's Guide to Life : A Wee Handbook for the Perplexed
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Bart Simpson's Guide to Life : A Wee Handbook for the Perplexed - book cover picture

"Bart Simpson's Guide to Life" is another successful translation of the greatest cartoon series ever to the printed format. Its success is a tribute to creator Matt Groening's ability to get inside the head of a wacky 10-year old without dumbing things down or being just plain condescending. Like the TV show, the jokes work for kids and adults (what grown up male can help but appreciate Bart's "dream room" with a robot butler and secret passageways!). Like the episodes themselves, Simpson merchandising is more hit than miss and "Bart Simpson's Guide to Life" is definately a hit.
Also recommended: "Simpsons Comics Unchained" (ISBN:0060007974)& "The Simpsons: A Complete Guide" (ISBN:0060952520).

Dream Country - book cover picture

Well, I am a fan of Ms. Rice's. I just recently started reading her works. This book was a little hard for me to start getting into, but I was caught up pretty quickly. It had some things that I really love about her writing, the love story, the family, the perfect scenery & background, and a Twist! I wasn't expecting the story to start turning the way it did. I am glad that it did though. I don't want to give anything away...

Healing Anxiety and Depression: The Revolutionary Brain-Based Program That Allows You to See and Heal the 7 Types of Anxiety and Depression - book cover picture

I could write something long and flowery, but I'll keep it brief. I have had depression for over 20 years. For the first time EVER, I fully understand what's going on with me. I no longer feel defective or like it's my fault for having a weak character or whatever. I finally understand that it's an actual medical problem, one that can be fixed. I can't wait to take care of it now that I know what's wrong. This book will make you think of your own brain in a very different way.
