Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men
It took a man to write this for it to count
Feminists have been saying this for ages. Read the works of Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony and you will see that women had already been thinking about the theories that Lundy illustrates. The problem was that they were women. I am grateful to Lundy for doing this, but at the same time, I'm disappointed that it required a man to finally admit to what the real problem is in order ...
Shop Class as Soulcraft
Need more stars, please!
Where's that sixth star when you need it? "Shop Class as Soulcraft" is thrilling, not like a Tom Clancy novel is thrilling, but thrilling to see someone as articulate as Crawford explode the myth that what America needs is millions more "knowledge workers" creating PowerPoint presentations about abstract concepts and taking out their frustrations with their meaningless jobs in fight clubs and ...

That Perfect Someone
I loved this book. It was great to visit with the Malorys again. Even though the main characters were not directly related to the Malorys their involvment made me feel like I was visiting old friends. By the way James Malory is the greatest
The House at Riverton: A Novel
"The final thread that tethered me has released"
I'm probably the last reader on the planet to pick up The House at Riverton, and I don't know why I denied myself the pleasure for so long. This debut novel by Australian Kate Morton was released first in Australia and was already a #1 seller and award-winner in the U.K. before its 2008 release in the U.S. It's a big modern Gothic, ranging over more than eight decades but cleverly contained ...
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money-That the Poor and the Middle Class Do Not!
Business Plus, 2001
Very easy read, great info
I am not a big fan of reading, but I breezed through this book in a few days. It was a very easy read and included great information. The information may not be ground breaking or new to most, but it is delivered with practicle examples. This is a great book to get you thinking more about yourself, your life, and your future.
The Last Time I Saw You: A Novel
Random House, 2010
What I loved about this book is that the characters are all too human: kind, shallow, thoughtful, disillusioned... they are funny and sad and inspiring and everything that we are. Who wouldn't be anxious but hopeful at a reunion? Who wouldn't fall into old patterns, then (hopefully) shake them off again? I enjoyed this book: thank you, Elizabeth Berg, for putting out such a nice read.
Mine Till Midnight (The Hathaways, Book 1)
St. Martin's Paperbacks
This book is wonderful! I couldn't put it down, read it in a day. I definitely recommend it!
A Wallflower Christmas
St. Martin's Press, 2008
Short but sweet. I have yet to read a Lisa Kleypas book that I did not like. Her characters are always endearing and humorous. I nice afternoon read.

I Love this Book!
This book was the read that finally kicked me into high gear into my true calling of Entrepreneurship and Investing....the light bulb finally went on! It will take you to the level of the mindset of a Super-Star Investor...teach you how to think like the mega-wealthy do. And you will start to question yourself on what you really want from life...average mediocrity like the rest of society, or ...
Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else
Genuinely useful info, and a fascinating read
Superb book with fascinating and useful info. I found it a bit lengthy to get through - all of the most salient points were made in the first half, plus the last chapter. Still, very important info for those interested in self-development. I found it a little meatier than Outliers, with more research and fewer out-there hypotheses. My Kindle version is filled with notes and highlights. Great!
IN OTHER ROOMS, OTHER WONDERS
Wonders, good reading indeed.
What a richly woven tapestry of life from Pakistan's remarkable history! I savored each personality, each life thread, then marveled how surprisingly they intertwined, revealing universal truths. Vivid images of sprawling colonial palaces, vast gardens, orchard shacks built on layers of history, urban life. I'll be looking for more works by this author.
The Space Between Us
HarperCollins e-books, 2006
This book is a glimpse into a world which describes the Indian culture, set in Bombay; a story of Sera Dubash, an educated and wealthy widow and Bhima, her illiterate maid. The story explores the challenges women face in their relationships with men and how the consequences of these difficulties are starkly different depending on education and class. The women have surprisingly similar lives and ...
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie
Dorchester Publishing -A, 2009
I'm not a huge fan of romance, but someone recommended this one to me, so I took a chance on it. I'm glad I did! Lord Ian has ASD, but the story is set about 100 years before the first paper on autism was ever published. So everyone thinks he's insane, because there is no other explanation for his behavior at the time. Since the Herione has just met him, she has a more easy-going attitude ...
Professional Android 2 Application Development (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
Not perfect, but a great intro to Android
As other reviewers have pointed out, this isn't a perfect book. But honestly, if you're a programmer, I think you're used to that in these kinds of books. I have never had a book without some typos or compile problems. It happens. I've also run across books that are 1500 pages long, and most of those are nothing more than repackaged documentation included with the technology. Length ...
Big Nate: In a Class by Himself
My son can't stop reading and laughing!
My son loved the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and I was desperate to find another book that he enjoyed reading as much. Well, this is the book. I think he likes it better than the Wimpy Kid series. He carries it with him wherever he goes and asks to stay up and read!! I LOVE this book! To any parent who wants to help their child learn to love reading, this is a good choice. I hope there are ...
The God of Small Things: A Novel
Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2008
A World-Lit, World-Class Winner
This book won the Booker Prize for Literature. And "in my book," it's also a world-class (as well as world-lit) winner, heartbreaking, haunting, and wise. The main action takes place in India in 1969, but it jumps around in time. As the author put it, the story "begins at the end and ends in the middle." So we know from the beginning that there has been a terrible tragedy that permanently ...
Seven Secrets of Seduction
HarperCollins e-books, 2010
This is one of the best books I have read in awhile! I was thoroughly captured by the lead characters. I liked the fact that the author took her time in developing the lead characters. The dialogue and banter were very well written. I probably would have read this in one sitting if I didn't have to go to work! My only complaint, and it's minor, (SPOILER ALERT) - is that Maxim up until nearly the ...
