Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

I admit it...I like Al Franken. He was one of the best writers SNL ever had, and his books make me laugh out loud. And he researches his books. The problem is that he is right on target with the big lies the Shrub administration is foisting on the public. I wonder what the current percentage of Americans who believe Saddam Hussein attacked the Twin Towers is. I know it was pretty high the last time I checked. Or the percentage of people who think we've found "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq.It's sad, really, and not a laughing matter. But Franken can (and does) point out these sad facts and others in a manner that can make me laugh.

The Unoffcial Business Traveler's Pocket Guide: 249 Tips Even the Best Business Traveler May Not Know - book cover picture

As a road warrior and Business Travel Columnist at, I found this book to be a companion on several biz trips.I think most frequent flyers know a lot of the rules of air travel but not some of the hidden secrets airlines don't publically speak out loud. This book is fantastic for reference when you are stuck in the airport or need to discuss a point with airline staff. Showcasing rules and ideas. It's as if just knowing about these tips makes you a smarter traveler whether for business or pleasure.Even a non-traveling friend found this book to useful on a vacation trip. I would recommend this book to anyone who travels (biz or pleasure) and to read before you fly or on your next trip. It's an easy read.

The Little Prince - book cover picture

I first read The Little Prince my freshman year in high school and I thought it was just plain confusing. Then, later that year, my school chose The Little Prince for the spring play. I tried out and got the part of the prince. This is when I really and truly understood the story. I then reread the book and it was absolutely fantastic. So for all of you who read it once and thought it was confusing, READ IT AGAIN! IT'S A GOOD BOOK!

My Sergei : A Love Story - book cover picture

I am 14 years old and although I have not experience love and romance yet, this book has truly helped me understand about what it truly means. It was so unfortunate that God took Sergei at such a young age. Katia did a wonderful job writing this book (if she really wrote it all). There is a lesson to be taught here-- it may seem that you have everything you could have, but it an instant tragedy happens. Sure, Katia is probably a millionaire--not like many of us and doesn't have much education, but she really is a normal person with normal feelings. I am sorry for her daughter, who does not have a father anymore. It took me only one day to read it and it was literally breathtaking! I can't imagine that there will ever be anything as good as My Sergei: A Love Story was. Tell Katia I said "Thanks!&quot

Constructing the Sexual Crucible: An Integration of Sexual and Marital Therapy (Norton Professional Books) - book cover picture

Schnarch has completed a Herculean task of exploring in depth the role of intimacy and sexuality (and spirituality). The sexual crucible model clearly is the most sophisticated model available today for marriage and sex therapists. His novel approach propells the field beyond the behavioral and technique focus that most therapist wouldn't even do if they had too. I was impressed that he attempted to address spirituality and some of his concepts in the final chapter are interesting. However, he falls into a simple dichotomy in analyzing religion which basically is a good/bad split. He really doesn't understand the depth of thought behind some of the previous great thinkers and sees them only through 20th century glasses, where they are easy targets. Overall, I strongly recommend this book to therapists. It is truly groundbreaking.

The Encyclopedia of New York City - book cover picture

Another reviewer said it best: Every New Yorker ought to own this book. It is huge, and chocked full of obscure facts about literally every facet of New York life. Sure, we all know who Bronck was, and working my way through Gotham, I learned about the Delancey family. But here, looking up the old neighborhood, I was able to find out how streets got their names, and so much more.Want to know who won Mayoral elections? Look here. Want to know which newspapers were published and when? Again, look here. Searching one entry will guarantee that two or three or ten others will pop into mind. It is great for specific knowledge and for just browsing.Not even the most knowledgeable New Yorker could read through this book and not learn some things. A wonderful reference work.

He asks a good question

Book title: City of God
Rating: 5/5

City of God - book cover picture

He asks a good question. A shame to summarize, but I'll say it's whether or how we will fulfill our destiny. "Teleology", on page 256. He wonders what will keep us from fulfilling ourselves in an orgy of destruction. He also answers it, or supplies the answer, although I don't think he knows it (I heard him on a BBC interview, which led me to read the book): if a passionate, no-holds-barred examination of Frank Sinatra can make you love that guy, then the same "National Inquirer" or "MAD Magazine" treatment of the planet at large has to make you love it too. You, Mr. Doctorow (are you a real doctor-ow?), are the healer of the planet, the one who calls off God's wrath. Don't sulk like Jonah at how easily the people repent. We are Fools of Song.

La autopista del sur y otros cuentos - book cover picture

Usted no necesita ser un experto en literatura para disfrutar de un buen libro. La clave en esta colecci?n es que reune los cuentos que contribuyeron a que Julio Cort?zar se convirtiera en el maestro latinoamericano del relato. Junto a antolog?as de narrativa corta de los grandes escritores nuestros y que recomiendo (El llano en llamas, de Juan Rulfo; Ficciones, de Jorge Luis Borges; Doce cuentos pregrinos, de Gabriel Garc?a M?rquez; y de recientes como Maldito amor, de Jorge Franco; y Desencuentros, de Edmundo Paz Sold?n, entre otros), La autopista del sur y otros cuentos es la mejor introducci?n que cualquier lector interesado puede tener en la literatura de Cort?zar y su alta influencia en autores contempor?neos, a?n si no se ha decidido leer Rayuela, su obra m?xima. Ya tendr? su momento. Lea este, y los dem?s llegar?n por a?adidura.

Lost on Earth : Nomads of the New World - book cover picture

I picked this book up by chance, while browsing my local library. I found this book to be highly informative and interesting. I am very uneducated regarding the cold war and I know little about the history of any countries besides the United States.

This book paints a distinct and painful picture of life on the run.

What I never realized was just how many refugees there are. All over the world people are forced to give up everything they know, everything they have worked for, everything they have grown accustomed to. That is unless all of there possessions are destroyed before they can willingly leaving them behind.

This book shows how any major change in thinking or political structure can affect millions and millions of people.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in human beings.

Classic Home Desserts : A Treasury of Heirloom and Contemporary Recipes from Around the World - book cover picture

I really like desserts, and since I like desserts so much I'm fussy and don't want to waste the effort making them and the calories eating them if they aren't good. This book covers the classics in every category - cakes, cookies, puddings, custards, pies, pastries, frozen desserts - so no matter what you're in the mood for you should be able to find something in here. I've had the book for several years and have never had anything fail. The directions are clear and well laid out, although I wouldn't have minded more pictures. Some of my favorites are the White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie, Edna Lewis's Sunday Night Cake, Omaha Caramel Bread Pudding, Boston Cream Pie, and Baked Custard-Style Rice Pudding.
