Escape From Davao: The Forgotten Story of the Most Daring Prison Break of the Pacific War
Simon & Schuster, 2010
History Comes Alive!
John Lukacs's book on the escape of ten American POWs from the Davao Penal Colony in April of 1943 is exceedingly well researched, historically accurate, and written with enough personal details to elicit deep empathy for the suffering and the hardship endured by the escapees. These men who dared to overcome almost insurmountable odds are a breed of Americans that can truly be called the best of ...
Gunpowder: Alchemy, Bombards, And Pyrotechnics: The History Of The Explosive That Changed The World
Very historically correct and factual
My search for information was to document the history of gunpowder throughout the Civil War. Exactly how did the Union and Confederates get their gunpowder? This breakdown begins well before the Civil War, but includes the Civil War in great detail. I found the book to be very historically correct and factual. It ties all of the pieces of the puzzle together, yet explains each piece individually. ...
Dawn of Darkness, A Novel
35 reviews, 2009
The Politics Of War
This book was written about subject matter that I had been exposed to before. However the book draws you into the atrocities emposed on our troops by the Japanese during the second world war on a personal level. As if what our troops suffered at the hands of the Japanese as captives wasn't bad enough, the betrayal to them by our own government post World War II was just as bad.
Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture (DIY Science)
Robert Bruce Thompson
You're gonna need a chemistry equipment supplier.
This book is some solid science! It's more for the home-school crowd than the dilettante who just wants some party tricks. Granted, some of the experiments are pretty darn cool (copper ore comes to mind), but you're not going to be blowing stuff up like on YouTube - hopefully - you're just going to be doing some basic (dangerous) experiments. This book is NOT for kids under 12 or so to use ...

Real World Drug Discovery: A Chemist's Guide to Biotech and Pharmaceutical Research
Elsevier Science, 2008
Interested in the pharmaceutical industry? Read this.
This book is an excellent resource for those wanting to understand the development cycle of pharmaceuticals and the factors that influence discovery, development, testing, approval, and marketing. Having diabetes, I participate in pharmaceutical studies. Nothing on the market has ever been able to truly get my A1C where it needs to be despite careful diet, exercise, changing physicians, and ...
The Periodic Table: Elements with Style!
More fun than flash cards
I am mentoring a 14 year old girl. She is taking chemistry next year so I purchased this little book so she can learn the "elements" this coming summer. This charming little book full of cute "element" characters is fun so it should be better than flash cards. It has each of the periodic element's information on one page, including the density and weight. Drawings and characters are such fun! A ...

Rodale Books, 1996
A "MUST" for any gardener's library!
I usually don't write reviews unless a book is extraordinarally good or bad. This book is an excellent and indispensable source to any and all gardeners, landscaper's, growers, etc., professional and laymen alike. I have a degree in horticulture and go to this book more than any other. When friends ask for help on insect and disease control, I usually find it in this book and recommend it to ...
An Unreasonable Woman: A True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas
Chelsea Green Publishing Company
Bravo This Heroine and Great Story Teller
What a pleasure to read this story of an amazing and heroic woman, giving it all to take down giants. Ms Wilson's Marquez-like writing style and choice of words leaves me breathless and imagining I'm there with her as her mission lays itself at her feet and she picks it up and takes it on. Bravo! An absolutely wonderful read.
IONPAIR: A chemical speciation program for calcareous and gypsiferous soil solutions (Special report)
Giles M Marion
Available from NTIS
Musical theme to Planiverse
I really enjoyed this novel! Along with an interesting story, Dewdney does a thorough job of explaining the culture and science of a two dimensional world. He really displays some great scientific insight, clearly explained in side figures. The novel has such a complete description of another world, I doubted it was fiction for a while. I apologize for the shameless plug, but a song is also ...
Handbook for Critical Cleaning
It's the ONLY book on Critical Cleaning
In my opinion, it's not just the BEST book on critical cleaning, it's the ONLY objective, scientific book on critical cleaning, emphasizing studies, testing and data. Also includes anecdotal information with proper discussion and evaluation, putting one of its feet in the "Handbook" category. In the spacecraft technologies area, Tribble's book "Fundamental's of Contamination Control," is ...
Firecrackers: The Art and History
Experience the Thrill
This book shows great insite into the history of the firecracker and the intricate artwork involved with the packaging of them. The clarity of the illustrations are wonderful, its hard to believe some of the labels are as old as they are. I highly recommend this book to anyone who can remember the excitement of being able to "set off" these firecrackers on the 4th of July, without worrying ...
Perry's Chemical Engineers' Platinum Edition
Robert H. Perry
Don W. Green
Convenient for labs
The hardcopy Perry's is a fun bedside table read for chemical engineers, and makes an excellent review manual. But it is bulky and heavy to lug around to labs or study rooms, and so the CD's that are part of this edition are first rate tools to load on your laptop so that Perry's tables and measurements in searchable format( the next thing to 'The Force' that there is a for chemical engineers) ...
The Fourth Horseman: One Man's Mission to Wage the Great War in America [With Headphones] (Playaway Adult ...
"The Enemy Within"
Robert Koenig's portrayal of Anton Dilger's mission to bring germ warfare to America during WWI is far more than just a gripping story of biological warfare and sabotage in one of its first modern instances. Koenig's work resonates to our own contemporary struggle against terrorism in a number of different ways. First, Koenig delves into the psyche and family history of Anton and with painstaking ...

Good Book for wood design!
Excellent reference for wood design. Nice and smooth sequence of topics .From the very basics concepts of types of loads to design for combined bending and compression. Very easy to understand and a good amount of examples to clarify the material.
At War With The Wind
Sears portrays the battles with the kamikazes superbly and so graphically as to be nearly palpable. The memories of my experiences as a gun-tub member on the aircraft carrier,Intrepid, CV11 prior to and during the battle for Okinawa brought back a flood of memories as I relived them in my mind. The accounts of the men on the smaller boats, the DD's, the DE's and the landing crafts and the ships ...
Falcon's Cry: A Desert Storm Memoir
Please read Falcon's Cry and remember that he was not alone.
I first came across the book in the fall of '99. It was at a critical time in my air force career. Soon, the mandate to submit to the anthrax vaccine would require a decision that would obviously affect the rest of my life. Take a vaccine that has been proven to cause terrible reactions and has been whispered to be a root cause of Gulf War Illness or refuse and be subject to military justice ...

A Guide to the Elements
Oxford University Press, USA
I think it's safe to assume that chemistry is a class that the vast majority of people dread taking. 7 years old or 100, it doesn't matter, this book is the perfect introduction. Do you think that chemistry is a world that someone like you could never understand? Think again, because by the time you're done with the short introduction to this book, you will understand chemistry. After the ...
