Ghost Wars: The Secret History of The CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, From the Soviet - book cover picture

Informative and engaging look at the people and politics involved in the afghan war, and wahabbist islamic extremism. This book provides some interesting details about the Mujhadeen in Afghanistan, and the many sources of funding and direct assistance they received.

All in all, a more serious and academic study of both the conflict and the politics than 'Charlie Wilson's War' - which is an entertaining but narrower view of similar material.

Life and Death in Shanghai - book cover picture

Nien Cheng's account of her suffering and survival during China's Cultural Revolution is both instructive and gripping. Her story reflects how easy it is for young, enthusiastic students to be turned into fanatical followers of an ideology which discriminates against all westerners and native intellectuals during this time of Mao's rule, similar to the emotions which swept across China during the Boxer Rebellion a century ago. The author's faith in her own innocence coupled with an ability to endure enormous mental and physcial suffering and her survival with an unbroken spirit reminds one of Eli Wiesel's experiences during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. It serves as both a warning and invitation to all of us to carefully prove what our leadership and modern media portray as the only correct ideology.

Fantastic! Just what we've been waiting for from Ms. Joyce!

Splendor - book cover picture

I have read every book by Ms. Joyce, also Laura Kinsale, Judith McNaught, and Virginia Henley. Of those 50-some books, this is at the TOP of the list. Carolyn is refreshing and wonderfully strong willed, ready to take any dare for the sake of intellectual discovery. Sverayov is absolutely enigmatic, powerful, and totally alluring. The contrast in their characters is wonderfully and thouroughly developed, exactly what pulls you right into the story. Their continuous stuggle between honor and passion is really quite unique and the historical scenes involved are thrilling. I read it in 4 days, and immediately read it over again!

Memoirs of a Geisha - book cover picture

Excellent book! This book has been on my "to read" list for several years now and I happened to find it in the library recently. It is an awesome book. Not only do you feel like you're taken by the hand and led into a secret society of women but you can't help caring about Sayuri, the main character, and how she develops into a very successful Geisha. Most girls experience a transformation when they leave girlhood and enter the world of women but that transformation is even more dramatic in the world of the Geisha. A wonderful book and a highly recommended read!

Okay, I saw an add for this in the back of the Warning (check for my review on that book also) and it was cool. Here's the summary: "Thanks to a nuclear accident, the Animorphs are going back in time. Way back. Far enough to meet a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Far enough to discover when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, they had alien company . . .Coming in May" cool, huh? go to the Warning and check my review on that. E-mail me if you love Animorphs. Gotta go!

This is the BEST series i've ever read. As an avid STAR WARS fan, i stumbled across previews from The Golden One and The Crimson Claw. Immediately, i was hooked and began searching to find them. When i finally got my hands on The Golden One, i couldn't put it down, and BEGGED my dad forever to order The Crimson Claw. Finally i got The Crystal Eye.

Black Like Me : 35th Anniversary Edition - book cover picture

This book really makes you think about the United states in the era of segregation. This book is extremly honest and I think everyone should read it, so people will know the horrors of extreme discrimination. I found the most important theme in this book was trust, there was none. There was no trust between blacks and blacks, whites and whites, or blacks and whites. I suggest that if you need something to read you really should consider this book

Patti Smith : Complete lyrics, reflections, and notes for the future - book cover picture

Patti Smith has put together an impecable collection of her lyrics. Yet unlike the majority of lyric books these days (they mostly look like text books that publishers just throw togehter) you can tell Patti was present and an integral part of each pages' layout. The lyrics scan like the poems they are. Each of the 150 mostly unpublised photographs are reproduced beautifully. This is a fine example of an artisit transcending one of their forms and creating an entirely new work. Thank you Patti

Bridget Jones's Diary - book cover picture

I can't prove it but Helen fielding has been sneaking into my room at night and reading my mind!. Bridget is me at my worst and thats why I can relate to her and why I laughed like a loon all the way to Boston while I read it. Much like myself Bridg has one diaster in love after the other and even though she may get alittle negative it's actually what I liked about her, she doesn't try to be nice all the time. She comes off as human, someone you'd go see the new Gabriel Bryne movie with. If your in a bad relationship or no relationship and have a good sense of self mockery you will love this book. If your a smug married with 2.5 kids and a dog your going to hate it and should just stick to "Chicken soap for the bored housewifes soul" or whatever it is you people read. A must read for anyone in her 20's.

Designing and Managing the Supply Chain: Concepts, Strategies, and Cases w/CD-ROM Package - book cover picture

As far as Dr. Simchi-Levi's book, I try to stay on top of the latest updates in regards to supply chain management and attend supply chain management seminars and classes on a regular basis. I've found that the text is state of the art and is at the cutting edge in presenting the key "Best Practices" associated with logistics today. The use of theory and cases is a great combination in getting the key concepts across. I have used it several times already in implementing real world logistical solutions in support of the U.S. Military worldwide. Bottom line . . . Any logistician who considers themselves a true professional and desires to be at the forefront of logistics today must add this book to their personal collection.
