Physical Acoustics-Dr. Blackstock

Fundamentals of Physical Acoustics - book cover picture

Dr. Blackstock is one of the most lucid technical writers I have encoutered in my (long) career as a phd candidate at UT-Austin Acoustics. If you are trying to understand physical acoustics there is no better book. Kinsler and Frey is weak in comparison. From this book, one can easily step up to Morse's classic Vibration and Sound, or even Theoretical Acoustics with out a flinch. This book is definetely a must have on your personal library.

What happened between the first edition and the reissue?


Book title: Dark Paradise
Rating: 5/5

Dark Paradise - book cover picture

I just finished "Dust to Dust" and I like Tami Hoag's romances, mysteries and crime novels. I read the first paperback edition of "Dark Paradise" after I checked it out from the library. I liked it, and decided I wanted my own copy, so picked up the reissued paperback. Has anyone else noticed that at least one of the steamy romantic scenes has been deleted from the reissue? It's still a good book, but I'm wondering what happened. Was this censored for some reason?

Waiting for Birdy: A Year of Frantic Tedium, Neurotic Angst, and the Wild Magic of Growing a Family - book cover picture

I absolutely loved this book. I haven't enjoyed reading anything so much in a long, long time. I have twin 3 year old girls and a 4 month old son, so, I related to most everything in the book. And, free time for me is a rare commodity but I made sure I read this book every chance I had. I'm now reading it for the second time through whenever I have a spare moment. Catherine captures so beautifully the challenges, the doubt, the love, the agony, and the joy that comes with raising children. And, it is simply laugh out loud funny. Thank you, Catherine Newman, for this wonderful gem.

The Farewell Symphony - book cover picture

I picked up this book in my local bookshop as it was being sold off half price. I'd never read Edmund White before, never even heard of him, so it's purely by chance that I'm reading this novel. His prose is perfect, I can't fault it and the story is moving and honest. I never want this book to end. I disagree with a previous poster who said you have to read this book as part of the trilogy, it hasn't spoiled my enjoyment of this novel one bit not having in advance the history of the other books.

Where is this series going to end up?

Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower, Book 4) - book cover picture

Easy answer would be the Dark Tower. But is that too easy? I loved it when Roland starts to doubt his himself, it makes him more human and believable. Maybe something else will happen that will sidetrack the Ka-tet on their journey. Maybe for instance them walking though a thinny into World War III that never happened in our world? There's an idea. Or maybe they will make it to the Tower, what if no ones home and the doors locked? Maybe trivial now but I bet it comes up along the way.

SK's books are starting to really blend and I like it. It is like meeting someone and finding out the know some of the same people as you do. He refers back to his novels time and again. What would be neat is if Roland's Ka-tet met up with the guys from "Eyes of the Dragon" and combined to chase down and conquer Flagg. Another Idea. This story may never end. Oh well just gotta read more!

Robbins' Finest Work


Book title: Skinny Legs and All
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Skinny Legs and All - book cover picture

I don't care what anyone says, this is by far Tom Robbins' finst novel. There is such imagination and absurdity entwined with profound philosophy that you absolutely won't be able to put this book down. The sensuality of Salome, the inner conflicts of Ellen Cherry, and the sheer genius of the course of events will stand out in your mind for many many months following the piece. Upon reading, I actually found myself stopping and pondering each new concept as far as my mind would allow me. Robbins has a well-rounded approach to introducing his thoughts on society, religion, politics, etc. etc. etc. without the typical boredom that comes with this type of philosophical banter.
I've read all of Robbins' work and this is by far my favorite. I recommend reading this before any of his other works. it will seduce, intrigue, and excite you in ways that books legally shouldn't.

King's best


Book title: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, Book 1)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, Book 1) - book cover picture

This collection of four related stories of Roland of Gilead was originally sketched out by King long before he achieved fame, notoriety, and wealth, as the start of a mammoth opus that is nowhere near completion. Its grandiose vision, combined with its modest initial scope, betrays the vaulting youthful ambition of the author, yet these four small stories stand out from the rest of King's work for their haunting and poetic character. The combination of vision and craftsmanship in these tales is unequalled in any of King's later work. The three (so far) sequels to The Gunslinger attempt to flesh out King's vast vision, leading to literary bloat. Sometimes what is indicated but left unsaid is far more powerful than what is fully explained. The whole story will be worth reading if you have a few months to give to it, but The Gunslinger will only take a couple of hours and will reward you with one of the few true masterpieces of postmodern imaginative fiction.

Richard Lazar should never have puit his pen down. His astounding account of the inner workings of the human mind is not only factually impectable, but his his style in presenting one of the most conceptually challenging areas in medicine made me buy the book for my young son Spencer for Christmas. It reads like a novel. Richard Lazar is my hero, and it is because of him that my son has hcosen to enter the field of Neorology. Richard, your next book should be on the priciples of life!

Puss in Boots - book cover picture

Lincoln Kirstein's imaginative retelling of the traditional tale, Puss and Boots, is a magnificent book for both adults and children. Illustrator Alain Vaes, is a set designer for the Bolshoi Ballet, the New York City Ballet, the Royal Danish Ballet, the Boston Ballet and other companies throughout the world. In Puss and Boots, Vaes used members of the Boston Ballet as his models for many of the delicious characters. Even Puss himself was modeled from a real kitty, who could be considered a balletomine, for 'she' was the beloved pet of a ballerina. The lush elegance of the illustrations and flowing brightness of the words exhibit the grace, fantasy and wonder of the ballet. Lincoln Kirstein's magical additions to the tale, heighten the intrique and present a richer conclusion. This is a book to be read, to be displayed proudly, and above all, treasured, and passed on to your children and grandchildren for their delight and enrichment.

Binding: Paperback
Star Wars: Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina (Star Wars (Random House Paperback)) - book cover picture

If this book had been taken from any other scene it would have been a disaster. But the motley cantina scene provides this book with ample ammunition. The cool part is you can kind of pick and choose the order you read the short stories, it doesn't really matter. The standouts are the Hammerhead's Tale, the Sand Farmer's Tale, and the Stormtroopers Tale. But don't get me wrong, the rest are all excellent. A fantastic read.
