Critique of Pure Reason
Standard translation of landmark text
Norman Kemp Smith's translation seems to be one of the standard English translations of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. Is it the best? I don't speak German, but it's certainly serviceable. This is a daunting work. It's also a necessary work, inasmuch as any understand of contemporary thought and intellectual history must encounter it. Kant has influenced nearly every major school of thought ...

Intimate Journals (Syren)
A crystalline fragment of aesthetic sensibility.
This is the document of a poet consecrating himself to memory. His attempt to maintain perspective; his aesthetic self objectification that is repeatedly shattered when he looks into society; his Catholocism, his ennui, his mistress, his mother...all these cast a definitely "intimate" hue to the pages that are essential for any reader wishing to come to terms with Baudelaire's psyche: to see ...
Starting Riding (First Skills)
I teach horseback riding year round and in summer camp. This little book is perfect for children. The drawings and explanations are accurate, clear, and easy to understand. While the book pictures children and ponies, adults who are just learning the basics of riding will find it informative and fun to read.

Im In Love!
After seeing 'Steal this movie', I had no choice but to learn more about this incredibly crazy man. This book is amazing...it made me laugh out loud, think, ponder the idea of getting out there and causing a ruckus in the name of freedom. His writing flows...like old friends reminicing about their life changing experiences. What an insane, beautiful man. I can only hope that there will be ...
A Journey to the Center of the Earth (Classics Illustrated)
Fast paced, exciting, original and charming
I think that this book is excellent. This story is fast paced, exciting, original and charming. When I read this book I it was very simple for me to imagine the pictures that were describing in this book. As a matter of fact, this book is outstanding because it was written in 1864 and at that time, it was impossible to imagine a journey to the center of the earth, so this book is really cool. ...

Delivering Carrier Ethernet is an excellent text on the subject. It is well structured, reviewing Ethernet fundamentals, and providing a templeted view of all the EoEverything technologies, without resorting to detailed protocol analysis. It has a good context of the evolution, and technologies. I've been in the carrier provider business for over 20 years, and this is a good as it gets. Multiple ...
The Wishing Bone Cycle : Narrative Poems of the Swampy Cree Indians (New Wilderness Poetics Ser.)
Howard; Rothenberg, Jerome (editor) Norman
Lovely, funny poetry
I never met a Swampy Cree but I would like to. The poems are spare, with multiple points of view and sharp humor. One example: Once there was a duck who lightened up the swamp I just happened to be there. "Ho! Lantern on the water!" some men called. But the duck said nothing. It sat deep in the swamp and glowed. "It's where the sun goes at night!" one man called, "inside that ...

Brains and Beauty
Aside from the wonderfully told stories, this book is an exceptional example of bookmaking, from the white on white end pages to the frieze-like illustrations by the Dillons that tell the story along the top of the page. A great choice for a gift book.
