I like how the book gives specific examples and covers almost any scenario that could occur, or close to it. It has helped me keep my cool on many occasions. I had to buy it because I need to refer back to it when things begin to be difficult again.
The Things They Carried
Most truthful account of Vietnam...
if you believe that truth is a mixture of hard facts and individual perceptions. In one of O'Brien's stories, "The Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong," fictional Tim O'Brien says that he could never trust the tales of his friend Rat Kiley because he blurred the lines of fiction and reality. But in war, the atrocities can feel unreal. In The Things They Carried, O'Brien masterfully weaves the more ...

Through the anecdotes rivalry issues unfolded that seemed trivial at the time but ended up having significant emotional impact ...
The Korean War: A History (Modern Library Chronicles)

But as Bruce Cumings eloquently explains, for the Asian world the Korean War was a generations-long fight that still haunts contemporary events. And in a very real way, although its true roots ...

The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East
Truth in the Lemon Tree
I read The Lemon Tree on the plane traveling to Israel & Palestine. All of the many conversations I had with both Palestinians and Israelis reflected the feelings of those in The Lemon Tree. Sandy Tolan made me feel as though I were reading fiction, however the reality was in the lack of conclusion to either the story in the book or to the situation in the lives of Israelis and Palestinians.

People Skills: How to Assert Yourself, Listen to Others, and Resolve Conflicts

Understanding roadblocks is one thing, but stopping yourself from "throwing them out there" is another. Reflective listening is an amazing tool and now that I can consciously employ it I do, ...

Ken Sande does a great job of showing what the Bible says about conflict and how it should be resolved. I realized that I was not allowing God to use me to speak His truth into the lives of the people He had placed around me. I was content with everyone just getting along ...
History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science
Public Domain Books, 1998
this is a disturbing book
This book isn't really about science or religion per se, though it says a lot about both subjects, it's more a handbook of opinions and how to not write authoritatively. After reading it, I wonder if the FOX channel knows about it. Bigotry and Ignorance are part and parcell of this man's writings.
