From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time
A Time for Reason
I was blown away having read //From Eternity to Here//. Here is an aoristic stroll through eternity from the perspective of a theoretical physicist. Unlike "Time" by Eva Hoffman, //From Eternity to Here// is an exhilarating journey through time, "The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time," says author Sean Carroll. Sean Carroll propels the reader through a sensuous ride through time. He ...

Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Delicious Cheeses
Storey Publishing, LLC
can't go wrong with this one!
This book was the only one chosen for sale in the well known cheese supply store in Seattle. The owners praised it. I was pleased to find it at a lower price on Amazon! Easy to read format and easy to follow directions. Very informative.
Phantasmagoria And Other Poems
Kessinger Publishing, LLC
We're talking the best of Carrol here.
This poem, writen in five line verses, ranks right up there with Alice in Wonderland. The poetry of Homer with the wit of Dr. Suess. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes poetry in any form.
Win Forever: Live, Work, and Play Like a Champion
Great read - and money goes to a great cause
Nobody has ever won 7 consecutive conference titles or played in 7 straight BCS bowl games before Pete Carroll did it at USC. This is a great look into the philosophy that made this extraordinary level of success possible. For the football fan, it relives moments from some of the great victories at USC, as well as coaching experiences in the NFL. It also talks about the implementation of the ...
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
Into another World
The story of Alice in Wonderland 1 and 2 is a well thought story that brings you to a place of "nonsense". The way Lewis Carrol wrote it has to do a lot about politics and the way of reality. Alice always thinks what's the point of a book that shows nothing interesting whatsoever? Well later on she discovers that there are a few reasons why s some things are not nonsense. These are some of the ...

Reminds us that math can be FUN
Math is fun, but the rhetoric of most 'taught' (probably an overstatement) math (and, by extension, logic) is so incredibly dry that the forest is rarely seen for the bark on the trees. But here Carroll, with tongue lodged firmly in cheek, turns the rhetoric (and by extension, the way we think about math problems) on its ear, and the result is an often incredibly funny approach to math and ...
Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World in Our Time
G. S. G. & Associates, Incorporated
Unconventional account of world history
I am a practicing attorney with a background in history. Having just read Tragedy and Hope, I found that it presents a fascinating survey of world history that is different from that found in college textbooks and other conventional versions of history. Unlike such conventional accounts, Quigley does not merely explain what has happened, but he explains why it has in the way that it has. ...
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Public Domain Books, 1997
I could just see the movie playing in my head as I read. every detail was visible it was amazing! I loved this book!
The Hunting of the Snark
Carroll's Short and Sweet Chaucer Imitation
The Hunting of the Snark seems to be a very, very short imitation of The Canterbury Tales. The first chapter (titled a fit) introduces all of the occupations of all the different people going on a journey. However, instead of going on a general pilgrimage and telling tales along the way, their trip is very specific to hunting. The Baker actually attempts to tell a story, but the Bellman (who ...
The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution
Sean B. Carroll
W. W. Norton & Company
How little changes make big changes
Another gem by Sean Carroll.The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution focuses on one key question: how do "small" evolutionary changes lead to big, complex designs in organism forms? It boils down to long time periods, many offspring, and selection pressures. Carroll uses profound examples, including the evolution of the eye, to show how study of genetics has ...
Alice In Wonderland
The Artwork Really Brings This Classic to Life!
Almost everyone knows the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland. They've either read the book or seen the movies but none of the former publications quite bring Lewis Carroll's story to life like Camille Rose Garcia. The artwork in this story is fantastic! Every page pops and pertains to the scene being described in a nearly perfect fashion. After finishing this version I could not help wondering ...
From The Teeth Of Angels
Main Street Books
Occasionally a novel speaks to fundamental issues that transcend insight and enjoyment. This one did it for me. I don't like Sci-Fi or fantasy, but Carroll's work tears the fabric of reality and goes to one's unexpressible fear and longing to address primal concerns, not unlike the effect fairy tales have on children. Yet he does it in a world where the natural laws as I understand them apply. ...
Twilight of a Queen: A Novel
An Exciting and Immersive Tale
Twilight of a Queen is historical fiction, and also more of a romance than I expected it to be, not that I minded that. The story changes perspectives between many of the characters, good and bad alike. I sometimes don't like that style, but actually enjoyed it in the case of this novel. The characters have many dimensions and this is part of what makes this novel so great. It is so often that ...
Validation is a wonderful gift!
I found this book to be exquisite and highly readable. It has enlightened me on parts of church events that I somehow missed when I gave up about 40 years ago - but now have returned to 'take the best and leave the rest' - the timing for me is exceptional. There were many things that I knew and just as many as I did not - and of course I identify with James Carroll to a great extent - and am ...
Remarkable Creatures: Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origins of Species
Dr. Sean B. Carroll
Excellent introduction to the science of evolution
I could not put this book down. I devoured all but the last two chapters (biochemistry). Get it, read it, free your mind the way these remarkable men did. I especially enjoyed the chapter on Charles Walcott.

St. Martin's Press
The Likeable, Peculiar Man from Wonderland
It has become part of our received knowledge that Lewis Carroll, author of the Alice books, liked being with little girls, and liked photographing little girls without their clothes, and that for all we may enjoy Alice's adventures, we have to wince at their author's being a pedophile. I have heard a presenter classify him in that category in a medical presentation on child abuse, for instance. ...
The Young Wan
A GOOD SOLID FUN READ - FROM HILARIOUS TO BITTER/SWEET
Not having read the Agnes Browne trilogy, this was my first exposure to the author. I, infact, did not realize that it was a prequel to other books, having picked this one up purely by accident. What a lucky find for me? I cannot remember when I have enjoyed a work as much. The author is a natural story teller, quite a fine writer and has the ability to make his characters jump off the page. ...
