Cautionary Tales for Children
Public Domain Books, 2009
Completing the Edward Gorey library
JIM, who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion. It's small wonder that Edward Gorey chose to illustrate Belloc's verses, written nearly a century ago - in fact, they were such a clear and strong influence on his work, it's hard to believe he didn't write them himself. 'Cautionary Tales' is a literary work that was years ahead of its time, parodying the overtly-strict educational ...
Cautionary Tales: Critical Curating
Curation on the move
I bought this collection for the essay by Geeta Kapur, in conjunction with my work as curator of the forthcoming exhibition 'New Art from South Asia' scheduled to open at the Herbert, Coventry, in January 2009, to coincide with the opening of the new galleries. [...] Kapur's presence in this collection is essential; as her position highlights the narrowness of approaches anchored in Western ...
The Truth About Day Trading Stocks: A Cautionary Tale About Hard Challenges and What It Takes To Succeed
One of the best books on Day Trading
I've read alot of books on Day trading, This is one of the best, at least for me it was. The market will move alot of time with no rhyme or reason. You could say it has a schizphrenic personalitly at times, but the one thing you CAN control, and MUST control, is yourself. This books gives a lot of help in that area. It really helped me, especially the share sizing part. I was really good at ...
Beauty and the Beaks: A Turkey's Cautionary Tale
Mary Jane Auch
The humor and artistry in this book are wonderfully memorable and so good that you'll want to share them with others. This is an excellent choice for read-alouds and story times. We've already shared this book three times with other little friends (and big ones) over the Thanksgiving holiday. It got lots of laughs and many comments about the artwork. We are going to look for more work ...
How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale
Love this book. I was just curios about Jennas life and how she got to where she is now. I read this in two days! I couldnt put it down. Its a longer than I expected but I went through it fast. Easy read. However there are a lot of nude pics in the book so if youre looking for a book to read on the train, plane, at school, w/e, I also suggest using a sheet of paper as a book mark to cover the ...
Animal Colony: A cautionary tale for today
Dr. Thomas Allen Rexroth
Mark Andrew Olsen
Holy Cow! Where has this been?!
This little book is amazing. I read it several weeks ago and I still find myself unpacking the contents of this simple and powerful story. For years I have hoped to find a book like this I could share with others, and especially young people who need to hear this message of liberty (and how a dominant beaurocratic mess could evolve out a group of individuals wanting to be free.) This is ...
On Fact and Fraud: Cautionary Tales from the Front Lines of Science
Princeton University Press
Excellent book on academic standards of research
David Goodstein is a professor and former vice provost at Caltech, and led the development of Caltech's rules of conduct. In this volume he discusses the philosophy of honesty in research, the challenge of reducing it to enforceable rules, and presents some illustrative case studies. Before addressing what this book is, let me address what it is not. It is not essentially a popularization of ...
Beautiful Teams: Inspiring and Cautionary Tales from Veteran Team Leaders
Jennifer Greene PSE
Tony Visconti on software, really?
Lots of really great interviews and interviewees, but for any Bowie / T Rex / Morrissey fans, I particularly recommend the Tony Visconti interview. Quite surreal to read the guy who produced Scary Monsters discussing why delivering a project using a waterfall-style process is sub-optimal: "Halfway or maybe three-quarters of the way through the project, I bring what I have to the record company ...
Pierre: A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and a Prologue

This awesome and simple story by the famous Maurice Sendak should be on the shelf of every home. We all have experienced those days when our child's favorite response is, "I Don't Care!" Pierre is having just one of these days. Everything his parents request of him receives the same reply. While they go to town, a lion comes and threatens to eat him. Pierre responds, "I Don't Care." So, the ...

The story Knuffle Bunny by Mo Williams is about a girl who brought her bunny to school. Trixie and her friends bunnies get mixed up and they went home with the wrong bunnies. Will they ever find the right owners? This story teaches me to be nice to my friends. This story reminds me of my stuffed animal penguin.

Is a PhD for Me? Life in the Ivory Tower: A Cautionary Guide for Aspiring Doctoral Students
Yuval D Bar-Or
The Light Brigade Corp.
A must read for prospective doctoral students
I was interested in going back to school to pursue a PhD in a business administration specialty such as accounting or finance due to the fact that after 5 years I felt my career was becoming monotonous and I had the grades and GMAT scores to get into a decent PhD program. Before reading this book, I thought it was something I was definitely going to do, in fact I would say I was 90%-95% certain. ...
The Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac Book: A Short Natural History and Cautionary Account
Thomas E. Anderson
Acton Circle Pub Co
Engaging, a much needed handbook *why no longer available?!*
Update: I had ordered several more copies of this book, to share, and while two of them arrived a while ago, the third had been delayed, and I have just (2 Nov 2008) received notice from amazon that they will not be able to acquire it for me. I cannot find the publisher online, yet, and am concerned that this very useful book may become unavailable. It is the sort of book -- an accessible ...
Permanent Obscurity: Or a Cautionary Tale of Two Girls and Their Misadventures with Drugs, Pornography and ...
Permanent Obscruity: As real as it gets!
I didn't have any doubts about reading this book even though I was well forewarned that it may be quite offensive to some. Keep an open mind because this book contains about as much realism in a story's characters as I've seen in quite some time. Sure they swear, sure they take drugs but this is realism and not a sugar coated Hollywood mainstream story. I enjoyed the dialog format because I think ...
Don't Be Greedy, Graham: A Cautionary Tale (Cautionary Tales)
My son's current favorite
I know others have commented on the hyperbole of the endings in this series possibly being a poor message for youngsters but I wonder if these same people don't read any fairy tales? In this one, the bad kid doesn't die but does have to live with pigs because he is so greedy. As a teacher, I was original drawn to these books because of the reading methodology is sound with the repetition of ...
Don't Be a Bully, Billy (Cautionary Tales)
Phil Roxbee Cox
Don't Be a Bully, Billy
There is always a Bully around somewhere. It's a great book to read and talk about with children. It has a funny ending. Sometimes using humor can be a great benefit, because children remember and think about it. It is beautifully illustrated, colorful and the pictures expand through both pages so that children get a whole view rather than right or left. Children enjoy funny and like to laugh ...
Death by Leisure: A Cautionary Tale
Atlantic Monthly Press, 2009
THE book of our times...
A very smart, engaging and entertaining read. Chris Ayres's charming wit and insightful writing puts him in the same league as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Ricky Gervais. He sums up LA and our current culture of consumption in a way few people can. Laugh-out-loud funny all the way through.

Hilaire Belloc's Cautionary Verses
Simply wonderful comic verse
Unlike most of the appreciators of Hilaire Belloc's comic verse for children, I first came to these wonderfully droll verses as an adult (I was brought up on Samuel Hoffenstein and Ogden Nash), but I have grown to love them as if I had known them since my earliest years (hey, that's the start of "Lord Lundy"). In his "Beasts", "Cautionary Tales" and "Peers" verses, Belloc achieves a delightful ...
Baby Huey: A Cautionary Tale of Addiction
Broke-Tooth Dog Press, 2010
