Scepticism and optimism combined
First a word about me: I'm one of those cancer patients who doctors either love or hate. I read up on everything, and I am openminded about the benefits and risks of both conventional and alternative cancer therapies. I question everything and want to understand where the limits of our current understanding lie. I want references! If you are anything like me, you'll appreciate the ...
Electronics Technology Fundamentals: Conventional Flow Version (3rd Edition)

Excellent first year text
We used this text book for my first class in electronics this last year. I was surprised at how much I was understanding. This text has a very excellent recipe for instruction. The opening page of each chapter gives a list of objectives and then each objective is identified as it is addressed within the chapter. Diagrams, definitions, origins of formulas, examples, self-check answers, ...

A Conventional Corpse (Claire Malloy Mysteries, No. 13)
St. Martin's Paperbacks
Cat, Kids and Authors
A new Claire Malloy mystery is a reason to celebrate. A Conventional Corpse is an excellent addition to the series. The backdrop of a convention attended a group of eccentric authors is perfect for murder. The characters are delightful and well written. The teenagers add spice. The frightfully spoiled cat was a hoot. Joan Hess always entertains but I think her plot twists in this book were ...
Foundations of Electronics: Circuits & Devices Conventional Flow
Delmar Cengage Learning
The best I've ever seen
This textbook is far and away the best I've ever seen on the subject. I wholeheartedly agree with the previous review, and would like to add a few comments of my own. This book, as a stand-alone text, is outstanding. If you combine this book, the lab project manual(sold separately-around $70), and invest around $50 in a Multisim software program(10.1 is the newest version right now), you've ...
Second Thoughts: Seeing Conventional Wisdom Through the Sociological Eye
Dr. Janet M. Ruane
Karen A. Cerulo
Pine Forge Press
For those who say "sociology is just common sense"!..Think
I have read more than half the book.This book brings out the what society preaches in public and what public practices in private.Its a basic and higly accesible version for a wonderful subject. In some chapters the authors "deviates" and just shows the supportive arguments for his thoughts....but doesn't provide "critical"/"balanced" view..(he does so in that chapter on gender).

Boosting Your Energy Through Conventional and Complementary Methods (Options for Health)
Conventional Wisdom: The Content of Musical Form (Ernest Bloch Lectures)
University of California Press
Music's favorite renegade does it again
If you ever met Susan McCalry, you'd find it hard to believe that this petite, soft-spoken, witty woman could inspire such ardent hatred from scores of musicologists. Moreover, the sociological and feminist concepts that she brings to bear on Western art music are already old hat in literary and art criticism. But musicology is, to a large extent, still in denial about Modernism, so ...

It seems to be stronger in the alternative medicine category than ...

I'm about to be a sophomore in college majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I haven't taken any circuit courses yet so this is all new to me.

What Are Spiritual Gifts?: Rethinking the Conventional View
God-honoring and -glorifying
Whether or not you agree with the premise of this book, you will most likely still gain much from reading it.

Furthermore, this book has the potential to bridge so many divisions in Christ's body today between charismatics and ...
