High Noon: The Inside Story of Scott McNealy and the Rise of Sun Microsystems - book cover picture

What I really liked about this book was its objectivity about the subject. It would have been easy to just bash Microsoft and say 'Sun was King'. But this book focuses fairly on both the strengths and shortcomings of McNealy and Sun, making it a true history of a really remarkable company.It seems like the author talked to everyone who was anyone involved with Sun and the high-tech computer industry to write this. It gets deep inside the motivations of the people without resorting to the kind of salacious "star-gazing" someone like Albert Goldman, Kitty Kelly or Victor Bockris would inject into their prose. Consummately professional. The April's Fool's jokes alone are worth the price of the book!

I Laughed, I Cried


Book title: A Time for Dancing
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
A Time for Dancing - book cover picture

I cried during some parts of this book... and I rarely cry while reading. Hurwin's words are so vivid and descriptive. After reading A Time for Dancing, I felt like I knew these girls and that they were my friends too. I felt so deeply affected by what was going on in their lives. It made me realize how awful it would be if I lost my best friend.
A Time for Dancing is about two friends and one gets cancer. It talks about all the hardships their friendship goes through and the hardships they go through in life. It was a beautiful story and I recommend it!

The Darkest Hour (Warriors, Book 6) - book cover picture

this book was soooo cool! it was intense and i was shocked at how tigerstar died. it wasn't nearly as sad at the end as Rising Storm, or Forest of Secrets, but it was very emotional. This series rocks and i recomend it to all ages!

p.s. don't get your hopes up. this is the last book but erin hunter is starting a new series called Warriors, a New Prophecy, with all new cats and clans. i'm gonna miss Firestar and the rest of the cats, but maybe they will be in a legend or in starclan for those series!

A visual competition translated into book form


Book title: Iron Chef: The Official Book
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Iron Chef: The Official Book - book cover picture

This 'official book' of the celebrated Japanese chef's marathon cooking show Iron Chef will be best appreciated by prior fans of the lively and creative television production. For newcomers the Iron Chef show presents weekly 'cook-off battles' between famous chefs who are given nearly impossible 'must use' ingredients at last minute with which to drum up a creative innovation for a panel of judges. So how can such a visual competition translate into book form? Iron Chef: The Official Book chooses the visual approach itself, with a healthy and liberal dose of color photos from the show supplementing a blend of show history, documentation of 'battles' airing in both Japan and the U.S., and a selection of recipes.

Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Marke


Book title: Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Markets

Binding: Hardcover
Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Markets - book cover picture

I have traded currencies for over a decade in both New York and London. Naturally, I read several books on the subject over the years in order to enhance my knowledge. I found "Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Markets" to be of real help in plugging several holes in my knowldge of technical analysis, which I had acquired on the run as a junior trader. The book provides such a consistent and comprehensive chart analysis of currencies that I strongly recommend it to anyone involved in this finicky business. In fact, all our junior traders have read it."Technical Analysis Applications in the Global Currency Markets" comes in handy particularly in the summer of 2002, as the dollar is crashing against other major currencies. Technical analysis was of exceptional help when the euro broke the resistance of some long-term trendlines earlier in the year. The book will give you all tools you need to become more profitable.

A brilliant and heartbreaking book

Notre-Dame of Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) - book cover picture

If you've only seen the film adaptations of this story, for heaven's sake read this jewel of a book! Hugo's ability to see into the hearts of people, especially those in states of degradation, is unequalled. His style, even in translation, is immensely powerful. The scene between Claude and Esmeralda in the dungeon is one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking bits of writing I have ever come across.

One of Vonnegut's Three Best Works


Book title: Cat's Cradle
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Cat's Cradle - book cover picture

Reading the other reveiws here is beginning to give me the feeling that many of these people aren't reading the same book that I have read numerous times. "Cat's Cradle" is quinteissential Vonnegut. He blends humor (Admittedly not as much so as his other novels)with his trademark apocalyptic visions of doom. This book is as hard edged as any of the satire he spilled out in his other novels. This book ranks in his top three and is far better than Bluebeard or Hocus Pocus (Don't get me wrong, those two are great as well.) But if you can say that this is not one of his better works than you simply weren't smart enough to grasp it. It's nothing short of pure genious

The Best

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Textbook Binding
Design of the UNIX Operating System (Prentice Hall Software Series) - book cover picture

This book is a bit dated but IMHO it is simply the best book on computer technology or computer science that I have ever read. It is not too abstract and explains how something actually works, yet it does not get lost in details. It concisely explains the fundamental data structures, algorithms, and ideas of a real operating system - one that has had a major impact on all major operating systems today.

Excellent Study Guide

History of Western Society, Vol. 1 (Study Guide) - book cover picture

The Study Guide accompanies the textbook 'A History of Western Society, Vol. 2). If you are reading the same textbook (and in many cases, even if you are not), the study guide is very useful. Each chapter begins with an outline of the corresponding book chapter. The study guide also provides 20 multiple choice questions for every chapter, which is an excellent but brief review for class tests and the AP exam itself. The study guide also contains key terms and important people in the chapter to remember and space to jot notes for those terms and people. It is an excellent way to review for the AP exam and simplify the book chapter. I will definitely recommend it.

A must for everyone who loves film music


Book title: Heart at Fire's Center: The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Heart at Fire's Center: The Life and Music of Bernard Herrmann - book cover picture

This is a splendid book. meticulously researched about one of film music's most charismatic and controversial figures. A raging restless talent who alienated all who cared for him. The spats with those he worked with. The music he composed and the constant disatisfaction he felt with that music. The frustration of not being able to write as he really wanted to. Opera in the grand manner. And to be a great conductor. Film music was always second-best and though he never composed down to the film, some of the movies definitetly were not worthy of his talent. The halcyon days with Welles and Hitchcock. The mediocrity of so many other films all contributed to the downward spiral of a genius. I don't expect you to agree with my views, I do beg you to read a book that is quite un-putdownable. Jonathan
