Thirteen Days: A Memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis
Robert F. Kennedy
W. W. Norton & Company
The tale that Robert Kennedy lays down in Thirteen Days is a nail-biting modern thriller. It is difficult to imagine the state of the nation, and of the world, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The two greatest powers were ever at odds with each other, bubbling up into a dramatic crescendo. What would happen when the ships were told to halt outside of Cuba? Would the U.S.S.R. deliberately attack ...
The Essential Mystery and Thriller Anthology (28 books)
1 review, ..., 2009
Nice deal and decent formatting on Kindle One
This review is not for specific content (i.e. the stories and books as individual works) but for formatting, navigation, and overall content. This is a great deal especially if you don't want 28 books listed individually on your content screen. Most of these are probably available either free or cheap but even so there are enough on here that would cost at least something that the price is ...
Classic Starts: Treasure Island (Classic Starts Series)
Robert Louis Stevenson
A Great Introduction to Classic Literature
I am a high school English teacher, and I am a huge fan of the original Treasure Island. That said, I love the Classic Start series as a mother who believes in introducing my children to the classics from a very early age. I began using the series with my daughter when she was five. We have read Black Beauty, The Little Princess, Heidi, and Pollyanna to name a few, so I am very familiar with ...

Robert Venturi: Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture
"The Museum of Modern Art, New York"
Gateway towards looking at architecture
I had to read this book for a class specifically regarding Robert Venturi and the postmodernism movement that he became a leading proponent of. However, this book is NOT a manifesto for a postmodern vacabulary- rather, this book looks at all architecture from the Parthenon to the common family home. Let me say that I have read many architectural theory books, but nothing that really inspired me ...

Eric Fischl: 1970-2007
Arthur C. Danto
, Robert Enright
This publication is an expanded edition of "Eric Fischl 1970-2000". In the opening essay Arthur C Danto helps us see the artist in context from his student days in the 1970s, when painting was almost an anathema, through his early work and to his notorious painting, "Sleepwalker", which brought him to the public's attention, and to his mature paintings. Selected paintings are discussed in more ...
John Quincy Adams (The American Presidents Series)
Robert V. Remini
Will Make You WANT To Keep Turning The Pages
To be honest, the first five books of the "American Presidents" series (excluding, ironically enough, the John Adams installment) were somewhat of a chore for me to get through. Unless you are obsessed with that time period, and not just fascinated by the Presidential Office and looking to gain a bit more history like myself, at times the series can get a bit bogged down in details and ...
Cognitive Coaching: A Foundation for Renaissance Schools
Arthur L. Costa
, Robert J. Garmston
This has excellent comprehensive information on education.
The authors of this book wrote not only about coaching as a method for professional growth in education but also about proven practices in education with ideas to better create a productive learning climate to help everyone learn. The concept of a school as a learning community with a focus on the students is wonderful. This is one of the best works on the powers of total staff collaboration ...
Harry S. Truman: The American Presidents Series: The 33rd President, 1945-1953
Nice brief bio of Harry Truman
Harry S. Truman's life story in a short, accessible biography. That's the premise of The American Presidents Series, and this is one of the most recent entrants in the stable. The late Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. was the series editor. In his introduction to each book in this series, he says (Page xvi): "The men in the White House express the ideals and values, the frailties and the flaws, of the ...

Deals from Hell: M&A Lessons that Rise Above the Ashes
Robert F. Bruner
Great analysis framework, good case studies
This is a very great book. After a few chapters about the major common mistakes in M&A where he provides a framework for M&A failures, he studies a few cases i ndetail, why these M&A did not work. And he always gives a counterpoint, an example of a M&A, in the same conditions, where they worked. Very interesting!
WebSphere Application Server Administration Using Jython
Robert A. Gibson,
Arthur Kevin McGrath
I was introduced to this book during a Jython class taught by Keven McGrath. He kept referring to the book in the classroom, and bringing up sample pages for examples. I was favorably impressed during the class, and even more so when the book finally arrived. They take a very important subset of Jython code for WebSphere and give concrete examples of how to configure and administer WebSphere ...
The Vicar of Wakefield (Oxford World's Classics)
Oxford University Press, USA
The ultimate 18th century novel
One of the first and almost the best. This book features humor, pathos, heart, excitement and realism in the complete study of human nature that it portrays. Much of the thread apparently based on real life incidents in Goldsmith's colorful, bumpy life. This is the kind of book you sob upon finishing, it's goodness floods you. If you have to read just three 18th century novel, choose this one, ...
The Mystery of the Whispering Mummy (Three Investigators #3)
Random House Books for Young Readers
Speak to me Mummy!
Quite a few children's mystery book series have become classics. Most people are familiar with Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and Tom Swift. Even the Boxcar Children are relatively well-known. However, Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators were well-written books that offered an intelligent, interesting and more contemporary alternative to many of the earlier classic series. Many people ...
