My Losing Season (Alex Awards (Awards)) - book cover picture

Anyone who played basketball in the 60's must fast break to the bookstore (or click on order) to read this book. While a bit wordy on describing his fast break assists, he perfectly describes the game and college experience of the era. Don't be thrown off by the critique of his coach, this is standard procedure for college jocks. I raced threw this book. Disappointed his team didn't extend their season so the book would continue. My golfing buddies and I today debated whether he soared with writing success due to his father or would have been better with a "normal" one. Wow, what a combination he would have been with my college coach, an English major from Purdue, John Wooden. I wish Conroy could meet Coach Wooden just once.

Dune Messiah (Dune Chronicles, Book 2) - book cover picture

Although Dune Messiah undoubtedly did not turn out as good as Dune, it was a good read. Granted, it had less action, but I am certain that anyone who is vaguely interested in SF, philosophy, or realistic atmospheres and characters could pull through this book, which is less than 300 pages long anyway. Some people closed the book feeling unsatisfied, but I didn't; the ending was, I thought, very fitting. It was also, as mentioned in one of the previous reviews, better than a "happy" ending. I thought I fully expected to be disappointed and to feel very gloomy after reading this book, but I loved it, and it deserves more credit than it has gotten. It you have read this whole blurb, you have been a brave person. ; )

EVERYTHING TO GAIN

Everything to Gain - book cover picture

From a Mothers point of view this story was a heartbreaking time in the life of someone who had so much going for her. The realism displayed during the grief, depression and months of trying to go on could only be written by someone who was close to the trials Mal went through. I don't think I'll ever forget the song that still rings in my mind that was part of the story. I felt the closure came when the children and her husband appeared in her dream and she was finally able to bury the ashes. I thought this was a good book and movie!

There is an enormous moral irony within this black humor.


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

Howard Campbell's "contributions" to World War II are put under a moral microscope that is unable to yield a verdict of good or bad. With a set of characters that epitomizes the term "black humor," Kurt Vonnegut examines the motives of the U.S. and German governments as well as the limits of the human conscience. Vonnegut creates darkly humorous characters, such as the Black Fuhrer, to surround Campbell in his struggle to reconcile his past and the consequences of his actions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been interested in the moral complications of the World War II ideologies of the western world. It is fascinating and disturbing and will make any reader study his/her own conscience.

Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission - book cover picture

Ghost Soldiers is an extremely compelling work. Although Ghost Soldiers is a non-fiction work, it flows smoothly and is well written. Many likely have a fleeting understanding or recognition of the Bataan Death March. Very few people have an understanding of the lives of the US soldiers in the aftermath of the March. Sides provides an excellent view of the brutal existence (both physical and emotional) of the prisoners during their years in captivity. Intertwined with perspective of the prisoners, Sides tells the story of the newly-formed and untested Army Rangers outfit that will attempt to rescue the prisoners from their living hell. Sides provides the reader with great insight into the tenaciousness, courage, perseverance, valor and honor of both the rescuers and the rescued. This is a truly inspirational story. It is a must read.

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - book cover picture

I would normally not pick up an economics book and read it cover to cover but something about Freakonomics jumped out at me and grabbed my attention. Maybe it's the eternal cynic in me who loves to see the obscure side of reality--who knows but I was not disappointed by Levitt's exploration of the other side of what we have come to believe. It is refreshing to see alternate theories and connections between seemingly unrelated events as opposed to the statistical fluff we often see splattered on the pages of economics text. I give it two thumbs up!

Ordinary Differential Equations - book cover picture

This classic (originally published in 1926 and still in print!) combines readability with a vast wealth accurately presented material (much of which can still only be found in research papers and certainly can nowhere else be found in a single reference). Most astpects of theory are illustrated by examples.The main areas covered in the book are existence theorems, transformation group (Lie group) methods of solution, linear systems of equations, boundary eigenvalue problems, nature and methods of solution of regular, singular and nonlinear equation in the complex plane, Green's functions for complex equations.This is an essential reference for anyone working with ordinary differential equations.

The Odyssey - book cover picture

This book was one of the better books i have read and would first off like to tell you that if you want to read it, go ahead, its worth the time. I cant help but think of Kevin Sorbo's Hercules when i read this book, maybe because the two are so much alike. The way the story is told makes the reader want to know more and more about the story, there for, they keep reading. Well, thats atleast what happened to me. Once again, if you are interested in this book, go on, read it! I assure you that its worth your time.

The Participatory Mind : A New Theory of Knowledge and of the Universe (Arkana S.) - book cover picture

Henryk Skolimowski postulates that in order to usher in a new society propagating peace, harmony, and wholeness, we must change our perspectives of what is valued. To do so, we must look within ourselves, at our society, our culture, and the communal cosmos in which we all reside. We are all co-creting, he might say; making reality as we participate with everything around us in a holistic enterprise evolving from within. The Participatory Mind is a wonderfully elucidating text written for any reader interested in becoming more, and helping society become more. There are direct correlations to education and psychology, though the book evolved out of a philosophical base. Similar reads from an educational perspective might include works by Lev Vygotsky, John Seely Brown, and Jerome Bruner. Other authors relating to Skolimowski's particular work would be Gregory Bateson and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Highly recommended-

Reaper Man (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

this is certainly among Pratchett's top five books. It's a wonderful work...full of understated humour and philosophical observations which give a slightly different slant to the way we view our own world. The humour is laugh-out-loud funny, and there are some lines you just want to keep in your head forever, remembering with a smile. Pratchett's writing humour aside, is also quite brilliant. It is eloquent, elegaic, and his descriptions are amazing. Simple things such as a grandfather clock, or a scythe, or even just daylight, are seen in a different way after being put under the microscope of Pratchett. the plot is brilliant, as are the characters. it rides along at a fair pace, with Death at the head of the cast. (My, and many others', favourite character). This is an excellent addition to the series, and for fans of Mr Pratchett comes very highly reccomended.
