A Nightly Adventure
This book is my 8 year old son's favorite book to read at bedtime. I must admit I don't mind reading it again and again. I think we both enjoy being transported to a place that is magical and never ceases to surprise us. But what we find most amazing is that our wonderment is actually about real trees and their ability to make rain, provide homes for animals and other full grown trees in their ...
If Chins Could Kill : Confessions of a B Movie Actor
L.A. Weekly Books
I stumbled across this in a bookstore and flicking through a few pages I was hooked. In fact, I ended up sitting in the garden and reading it that (long) day. A wonderful concept - an autobiography that doesn't take itself too seriouly. Often hysterically funny it takes a fun look at the world of bad - sorry, low-budget - movies and provides critical insights such as exactly which shoulder of a ...

Lily Chin's Knitting Tips & Tricks
Very nice job crafting this book. It is the perfect size for knitters to tuck into their knitting bag. Despite its small size, it is packed with information and clear illustrations. The information it contains is quite detailed and thorough. I also like that there is an index in the back.

The Golden Days (The Story of the Stone, or The Dream of the Red Chamber, Volume 1)
A Remarkable Achievement
I spend a lot of time wandering through bookstores. One particular book has caught my eye over the years, and the other day I bought it - Volume 1 of Cao Xueqin's eighteenth century epic, "The Story of the Stone: The Golden Days". As a developing eighteenth century scholar, I was doubly attracted to it. "The Golden Days" absolutely blew me away - used as I am to eighteenth century novels ...

This is a must-have book to add to your holiday shopping for children of any age. My 6 year old and 3 year old boys have an extreme love for all sort of dogs and instantly fell in love with Henley. We hope Henley and the author will make more journeys together.
Joyful Wisdom: Embracing Change and Finding Freedom
Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Random House Audio
I've come to a rather cynical place where I sometimes believe there is nothing i can learn from meditation books and 'spiritual manuals'. After all, they contain empty words while all that matters is experience, right? Getting ahold of JW made me realize (yet again) how often i get it wrong. Reading itself created an inner shift in me, i could see my breathing change, awareness sink into the ...

The New Silk Road: Secrets of Business Success in China Today
Valuable Case Histories to Build a Better Business in China
Almost everyone who knows little about China is enthralled by the opportunity to sell products to all those people who live there. Those with a little more knowledge also get excited about having products made for export from Mainland China. Those with still more knowledge look forward to outsourcing services to China. Beyond that, some speculate that Mandarin Chinese will even become the ...

Bulletproof Buddhists (Intersections - Asian and Pacific AmericanTranscultural Studies)
University of Hawaii Press
Frank Chin combs the landscape of Chinese American culture
There is no question that when it comes to specific, focused cultural criticism, Frank Chin has the task nailed down. I don't know the time frame spanned by these essays, but in terms of content they cover all the bases. Any student of Asian-American history and culture can profit from Chin's sometimes tongue-in-cheek, sometimes frightfully serious analysis of several aspects of the ...
