The Bone People : A Novel - book cover picture

This whole book has a feeling of both isolation and the desire for the warmth of human companionship. Each of the very different characters are beautifully and realistically portrayed. They each grow and learn from being in each others presence, and they are all flawed, and very human. Moments in this book are very tough to take, but it is an excellent read, and one of the best modern novels. Definitely not for everybody though. And be prepared for emotional involvement.

The Cambridge Ancient History: Volume 3, Part 2, The Assyrian and Babylonian Empires and Other States of the Near East, from the Eighth to the Sixth Centuries BC (The Cambridge Ancient History) - book cover picture

Wm F Albright has some works dealing with the Ancient Near East.
Also, Herbert G May took aerial glass lantern photos of
Masada. He was at the college from 1936 to 1970.
Yiguel Yadin also did a work on Masada which he is famous for.

MHQ The Quarterly J. of Military History, Vol. 8 No. 3 also touches on Masada in the lead off article.

May did 130 glass lantern shots of Masada, stored in the archive.

If the catalogue for the school term 1968-1969 were available,
I most likely would look up where he got his educational
degrees from.

APA Manuals of Style have followed me like PDR calculators.

We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda - book cover picture

I have not closed my eyes since I finished this tale without seeing a crowd gathered around, jeering, taunting, waving machetes,watching a man crawling - hands and feet severed. They jeer - in anger - in scorn - in pleasure - as their companions slowly hack this man to death. As they cut him down to size...again and againAnd in Gourevitch's stories lie the keys to both the cause of such an unspeakable crime against all of humanity.. and the signs to look out for..For the terrifying fact was that a modern government, in a televised world, convinced both Hutu and Tutsi of the inevitability of genocide while the "power" of the western world dared not even name the crime for fear of being forced to act to uphold its own published and proclaimed standards

Tour Tempo: Golf's Last Secret Finally Revealed - book cover picture

This book showed how tempo equated to increases in clubhead speed. It does make sense to go back much slower in the backswing than in the downswing to increase clubhead speed. I also used the following to help improve my game immensely. This book is called:
The Ultimate Golf Instruction Guide: Key Techniques for Becoming a Zero Handicap Golfer or Better by Patrick Leonardi
(ISBN is 1933023090)
Patrick Leonardi's book is unlike any other golf book or golf magazine I used on golf instruction. It actually helped me to go from a 89.2 scoring average to a 84.1 scoring average in about 2 months. The thing is the more I practice using Leonardi's techniques the more I improve. I can't say this for other golf instruction books. I was recommended this book from one of my golfing buddies who improved a lot from using Leonardi's book. Anyway, Tour Tempo by John Novosel is an interesting book on the science of timing in the golf swing.

Thinking for a Change: 11 Ways Highly Successful People Approach Life and Work - book cover picture

Without any doubt I can call this book a resource manual for effective thinking. Each and every skill detailed in this book has tons of quotes and examples of successful people who put them on practice.The book is very focused in the why's and the how's rather than in the what's, and the questions at the end of each chapter are very keen and invite you to give a deeper brainwork to the principles you learned.I can guarantee that you will feel very challenged after you finished reading it. This book will not give you answers to your tough calls, but surely it will teach you how to think them out.From Panama

Cleopatra VII: Daughter of the Nile, Egypt, 57 B.C. (The Royal Diaries) - book cover picture

This book was pretty accurate. Since this happened over 1000 years ago, it is possible Cleo did meet Marc Anthony at an early age and she did go to Rome. Not much is known about her childhood. This book only takes a small dose of what it could have been. It demonstrates the Princess's brightness and her accuracy for the tongue. No one should claim of what she did or did not do. Gregory did make a fascinating young Cleopatra, the young princess does question herself and in the end, she is realistic to a girl of her time. The writing is eloquent and easy to comprehend, it serves the purpose about a young Cleopatra who had to endure a time of battle and war. The murders and lust for power is realistic of the time which makes it more historically accurate.I did enjoy this book and it was interesting, I picked up a couple of things I didn't know about the future Queen. Gregory is a very good historical fiction writer and I expect to see her future works.

Overall, a most helpful guide to business etiquette...

The Etiquette Advantage in Business : Personal Skills for Professional Success - book cover picture

This book is a great reference tool, and sits in my office next to the classic Emily Post. It is helpful for perhaps a new college-grad, or someone entering the business world for the first time, to read it through. For those more seasoned in the business world, this book is a great tool for guidance in tricky situations. While there will certainly be tips that appear obvious to an individual with business experience, The Etiquette Advantage in Business can also be used a reference tool.

Say you are traveling abroad for the first time. This book covers etiquette on various continents and in different countries.

It is absolutely worth a read, whether you are a beginner or a CEO.

smallpox, anyone?


Book title: The Demon in the Freezer
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Demon in the Freezer - book cover picture

i've just read Demon in the Freezer, Scourge (J. Tucker), and Pox Americana (E.A. Fenn). Demon and Scourge cover much the same ground, but Preston knows how to tell a better tale (full disclosure - I'm a huge fan of everything he's written). Some information, such as the extremely high fraction (20% !) of Americans that would not be able to take the smallpox vaccine, is only in Preston's book. He also discusses anthrax at some length, and genetic modification to smallpox to make it a super-weapon, both of which are omitted from the other two books.
