The Singing Life of Birds : The Art and Science of Listening to Birdsong - book cover picture

Perhaps its birdsong which is the attraction: if so, pick up Donald Kroodsma's The Singing Life Of Birds: The Art And Science Of Listening To Birdsong. Learn about how birds acquire their songs, how they vary between species and places, and how to identify birds through song. First-person observation and reporting accompanies scientific facts and research. Professor Kroodsma has studied birds and their songs for over thirty years; but his The Singing Life Of Birds is that perfect cross between research and casual observation which makes it engrossing to a wider audience than college-level students of ornithology.

A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive - book cover picture

This is definetly a page turner. I couldn't put it down! I started one evening and finished it the next morning. It really opened my eyes on just how cruel someone could be. That cases like this probably happen all the time. What Dave's mother puts him through is unbelievable. You won't believe what your reading!! What is even more amazing is that through the years of torture both physical and emotional abuse this young child survives.

Field Guide To Bigfoot, Yeti, & Other Mystery Primates Worldwide - book cover picture

This is a "must buy" for people interested in unknown primates. Every mysterious being is sketched from eye-witness reports. The book is scattered with fascinating fresh accounts including, Chinese hunters wounding and capturing a yellow haired "snowman", forest rangers surrounding a frightened Yeren and throwing a rock at it... and other amazing accounts. I compare this to a Jerome Clark book for research purposes. I recently purchased "Cryptozoology A to Z" , I hope it's as interesting as this Field Guide.

Reassuring and provocative

We Don't Die: George Anderson's Conversations With the Other Side - book cover picture

For those who "believe": enlightening, inspiring, and reassuring. For skeptics: there are some very provocative situations to reconcile if indeed you believe that the transcriptions are true. ** I would recommend it to anyone who has lost family, friends--even animals. ** I strongly recommend reading the last chapter first to get Mr. Anderson's firsthand perspective on the spiritual world and his opinion of his own powers. I think it would make the other chapters more credible and less dull because his own words are more intelligent and articulate than Martin & Romanowski's.

Slow Start But Worth The Wait


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

This book was difficult for me to get into at first but I was determined to hang in there and glad that I did. I found the writing and character development great. The story however was very sad, particularly what ultimately happens to Sugar and her revelation that she is who she is and 2 weeks won't change it. However, I loved the way that she stood up for herself in church just before she left. Neither the characters or story line were superficial and seemed to be the product of careful thought and deliberation. The only regret is that I wished the lineage between Sugar and Shirley would have been revealed, if for no other reason than to put Shirley in her place...does this mean a sequel? I think there are so many lessons one can take from this book starting with personal redemption, judgement, acceptance of people who are different and on to unconditional love. I loved this book.

the story of harvard med school students and the careers theypursue is moving and fascinating. anyone w/ an interest in medicinewill enjoy it but segal goes beyond this, tieing the story into theevents of the times, from the liberation of nazi concentration camps to the black panthers movement of the 1960s. i'm from new haven, ct. where segal puts the panthers and i remember their presence from childhood. of course the main focus is the on the medical profession which segal has researched thorougly to tell the story of the students and doctors and the work they do. case after case is presented here in highly readable fashion. the book is very long, but never boring as the story moves along steadily and the reader becomes involved with the characters, especially barney and laura, the childhood friends from brooklyn who go on to harvard law and successful careers in psychiatry and children's medicine.

I always knew that Pooh knew the (W)way!

Tao of Pooh and Te of Piglet Boxed Set - book cover picture

I'm 52 now....but when I was a kid I knew that Pooh knew the way. He was the greatest then (and now), and, thanks to this book, I now know why. This book is not only a wonderful intro to Taoism, it is also a confirmation of what every child hopes for and secretly knows. Because in the western world, Pooh is more well known than the Tao and he is known to the child within us, he is the perfect prophet.Bravo...this book captures all the awards...it is profound yet so simple that even a child can see the truth in it.A Must Read for People who have or want to have a soul.

A Great Guide to Intuition


Book title: Awakening Intuition
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Awakening Intuition - book cover picture

Having read several books on intuition, I believe that Frances Vaughan's book is the all encompassing guide on intuition. The author describes intuition at all levels of human experience and is the only text that I have come across that is able to truly describe a complex subject in a manner that is relatively easy to understand. I have owned this book for several years and everytime I read it, I gain some additional insight into this important faculty of the mind. I encourage the reader to read the book several times since every additional attempt will enhance their intuitive capability.

Don't miss the point; it's about extending survival envelope

Binding: Paperback
Touching the Void: The True Story of One Man's Miraculous Survival - book cover picture

There are rare books that help to define the limits of what it can mean to be human. Without fear of employing hyperbole, this is one of them. Joe Simpson has done nothing less than extend the envelope of what it is possible to survive, to endure, for everyone who reads Touching the Void. His writing style is brutally efficient, making Hemmingway seem long-winded. The reader is overwhelmed by the feeling that if more people read this book, there would be less complaining, more personal responsibility, and fewer people who quit at the first (or hundredth) sign of trouble in their lives. It is not so much inspirational as it is instructional. Buy it. Read it. Never give up!
