The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference - book cover picture

From Joan Mazza, author of DREAMING YOUR REAL SELF, DREAM BACK YOUR LIFE, FROM DREAMS TO DISCOVERY and THINGS THAT TICK ME OFF.So much about THE TIPPING POINT was new information for me-from the making of children's television shows to the stories behind the falling crime rate in NYC to the study of fashion trends. I loved the detailed descriptions of the different personalities that contribute to the tipping phenomenon. It helps explain the success (and failure) of so many people's attempts to make a public impact. The concept of context, especially the "magic" number of 150, was in keeping with what I know about people living in intentional communities. Translating these ideas into positive "sticky" life choices has enormous potential for social change and personal satisfaction that most people can only get a glimpse of in their personal lives. **Very thought provoking.** I want to recommend it to everyone I can think of- and for very different reasons!

Clancy at his best. An equal to Hunt for Red October.


Book title: Rainbow Six
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Rainbow Six - book cover picture

Clancy shifts gears slightly and forgoes his usual hi-tech and multi-character beginnings that are difficult to wade through. Begins with a bang right from the start and continues at breathtaking pace until the very end. It's really hard to find a place to put this book down. In this book, Clancy brings back John Clark, CIA operative, and Ding Chavez, Clarks long time side-kick. Remember Clear and Present Danger? Clark heads up an anti-terrorist organization made up of multi-national "best of the best" soldiers. They take you through breathtaking plot after plot. At the same time Clancy weaves the master plot throughout. This is a truly gripping novel you will thoroughly enjoy.

The Best of Gourmet 1999: Featuring the Flavors of Spain (Best of Gourmet) - book cover picture

I was expecting a compiling of hard to wrangle recipes.. but from the few that I have tried so far.. all of came out smashingly!! I made a pork chili.. which was to die for.. (although i did spice it up a bit more).. the louisiana mussels.. were not quite as good.. i prefer a lighter sauce for the mussels..and this was a HEAVY tomatoe sauce.. but the real winner was the mahi mahi with orange viniagrette and cilantro pesto served with crushed potatoes.. I prepared it a couple of days ago..and WOWed everyone.. it was such a beautiful dish, easy, and tastey!.. even better those two sauces can be used for practically any fish.. (I plan on adding some ginger to the orange vini and use it for a dipping sauce for boiled shrimp!!

Bill Clinton's Play Book


Book title: The 48 Laws of Power
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The 48 Laws of Power - book cover picture

This was truly an interesting and enlightening read. What I was especially impressed by the fact that many of the Laws were put to good use by our ex-President Bill Clinton. Some of the Laws are downright Machiavellian and probably would not be employed by persons of good conscience. However, the majority are action items for getting one's life going. My personal favorite exhorts us to act boldly and decisively. When in doubt, do not act.The book itself reads easily. Each chapter has the law and examples from history illustrating its successful application or fateful transgression. Very entertaining.

Voice Over IP Networks - book cover picture

Of all the books on VoIP I read, this one is the most complete. I agree it doesn't dive into much details on any technology discussed in it, but I don't think it was the author's goal anyway.The book provides you with an excellent overview of all the technologies and vendors playing into the VoIP space and also makes references of other texts and resources you should check for further information.

Amazing, my new favorite...

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - book cover picture

Let me start off by saying this book is absolutely incredible. I had to read it for a college English course and, upon finishing, I was left wondering why the hell I had waited so long to read it. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book. I also saw the movie that, while it was good, can never compare to the book. I've kept the book so that I can reread it in the future. I can honestly say I had moments where I was laughing so hard my face turned red but I also had moments where I was crying so much I could no longer read the print on the pages.

Do yourself a favor and read this book.

Visual Effects in A Digital World : A Comprehensive Glossary of over 7000 Visual Effects Terms (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Graphics) - book cover picture

I've watched Karen put this book together over the course of the last year or so (even had a chance to give my 2cents on a couple of terms) and so I can hardly be called an Unbiased Reviewer. But now that it's done, I'd have to say that just about anybody who is involved with visual effects (which these days means just about any aspect of filmmaking in general) will find this book well worth owning. And even if you HAVE been in the industry for a long time, I guarantee that you'll be able to learn a few new things (or re-learn a few old things) after thumbing through this book.

A defense on libertariansm


Book title: Free to Choose: A Personal Statement

Binding: Paperback
Free to Choose: A Personal Statement - book cover picture

One of the best book...I enjoyed it thoroughly. As an economics student, I believed that this book is even better than Adam Smith's Wealth of the Nation. It not only describes the danger that we faced today and how liberalism is the road to poverty. As an old Keyensian economist, I am now "cured" and Dr.Friedman's eloquence as well as his wirtting skill are truly inspiring. This book is not only for those boring economists(including me) who can never reach any conclusion on just about everything, but the book should be a required reading not just for college students, it should extneded to high school as well. Dr.Friedman's reputation as a first-rate economist should not be questioned.
