Executive Intent: A Novel
HarperCollins e-books, 2010
Another great techno thriller plus political intrigue
I just finished reading Dale Brown's latest techno-thriller, "Executive Intent". I have always been in awe of Dale Brown because I spent 27 years in the air force and I can relate to the systems which he describes in his books. The truth be known, I wrote nonfiction proposals for companies, many of them dealing with technically oriented subjects. I can describe technical subjects to an audience ...
In Defense of Faith: The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity
A STARTLINGLY EFFECTIVE REBUTTAL to the likes of Hitchens and Mahar
It was with some skeptical trepidation that I bought David Brog's new book "In Defense of Faith." I was a fan of his previous volume, "Standing With Israel," but have also been a fan of Christopher Hitchens' provocative "God is Not Great," a tome to which Brog's new book may be considered to be a rebuttal. As an avowed atheist myself, I did not expect Brog's book to score too many points with ...
In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto
fast and informative litle booki
This is an very informative and timely commentary on our food growing, preparing and eating. It comes complete with a clear set of guidelines.
Ultimate Warrior Workouts (Training for Warriors): Fitness Secrets of the Martial Arts
Martin Rooney did a fantastic job with 'Ultimate Warrior Workouts.' It is very detailed, concise, and easy to follow. If after reading this book you do not want to get up and go workout...you just may want to find another hobby! Martin, the picture of you and your 3 daughters is truly priceless; they already have that 'warrior look' in their eyes, I love it, well done my friend!
Tao of Jeet Kune Do
Ohara Publications, Inc.
wow the best
i bought this book thinking "HELL YEAH Im going to learn JKD" instead i learned something different common sense and looking at life in a different view. i learned more about bruce lee and i just love this book.
The 48 Laws of Power
There's no topping Buck Rogers' or John Ryan's reviews, so read those first. Always remember: The definition of power in this book = degrees of control over the outcome of your efforts. Even in the New Testament it is written "Faith without Works is dead" (a challenge: where are your fruits of the spirit?), so even here we find outcomes being the mark of the measure (though Christianity says ...
The Verbally Abusive Relationship
Adams Media, 2009
A tool box for victims of verbal abuse
I have purchased and passed along multiple copies of this book over the years. The ideal resource for people in verbally abusive relationships, this book gives practical advice and an in-depth look at the reality of the abuser vs the victim. Most useful are the chapters providing actual conversational responses a victim can practice and put into use. The various types of verbal abuse are ...
Whose Monet? An Introduction to the American Legal System (Introduction to Law Series)
Still remember this book, 7 years later...
The author of Whose Monet? was my first-year property law professor. My entering law school class was assigned this book before it even became an actual, published book. I remember reading it before law school, and then using it as a basis for classes during orientation. It also frequently came up during all three years of law school, as it was something the professors knew we had all read, and ...
Emotional Vampires: Dealing With People Who Drain You Dry
McGraw Hill Text, 2000
best blood drink!
true eye opener about emotional vampires out there! i thought this book would be just another book review i had to write, but it kept me glued to every word!
The Baffled Parent's Guide to Coaching Youth Soccer
International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press, 1999
Excellent - don't be put off by the title
This is an excellent book for ANY youth soccer coach - don't be put off by the title. It has tons of drills and games you can instantly put into play at your next practice to keep things fun and fresh for the kids. I've coached both girls and boys teams even though I never played the game, and I used many of the games, drills, and skills from this book to make my teams the best they could ...
The Warrior Diet: Switch on Your Biological Powerhouse For High Energy, Explosive Strength, and a Leaner, ...
North Atlantic Books, 2009
You will lose weight
Restrict your caloric intake and you'll lose weight, at least until your metabolism adjusts. Because this diet is probably more restrictive than most others that are popular with men, such as All Pro, Abs, and Belly Off, it can help you lose that last ten to fifteen pounds, if you've stopped losing weight with the diet you're currently following and want to see if you can get your body fat into ...
Ballantine Books, 2003
Delivery was timely as promised. The item was the exact quality promised. I would not hesitate to purchase from this seller again.
The Day After Roswell
So Star Treks' Data isn't just Hollywood.
An interesting story, for me, because the author & my father held the same rank. I wonder if they ever met. I have noted that all the technological advances supposedly back engineered from the alien craft do not have a discoverer attributed to them like Edison, Bell or Crick. These inventions: night vision, Kevlar, fiber optics, brain wave/PC interface and perhaps a primitive form of antigravity ...
Victory Belt Publishing
Saulo has done a great job in creating a book that makes sense in how it is presented. Unlike other jiu-jitsu books that just put random moves together page after page, Saulo starts with survival positions- then moves to escapes and so on. If you are tired about reading of escapes, just flip ahead a bit in the book and read about different submission techniques. There are many different ...
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Most Hilarious Book I've ever Read In My Life!
This book is absolutely hilarious! Don't think that because its written by a UFC fighter that it is a book about fighting. It's not, its about very weird ideas and stories of Forrest Griffin that will make you laugh out loud that you'll fall off your seat. I am not exaggerating. I remember when I was reading this book in public by myself I used to laugh and giggle that people around me thought I ...
Kettlebells For Dummies (For Dummies (Health & Fitness))
MOST COMPLETE BOOK ABOUT KETTLEBELLS from a Top Expert!
I have never seen such a thorough kettlebell manuel, including EVERYTHING about kettlebells, all accounted for from scratch. From detailed instructions and tips, to perfectly illustrated movements by Russian Kettlebell Certified Teachers. It had to be a labor of love for Sarah that she put everything important into this book, which just wasn't possible to find all in one place before. You ...
Krav Maga for Beginners: A Step-by-Step Guide to the World's Easiest-to-Learn, Most-Effective Fitness and ...
Ulysses Press, 2008
Both the Title and Contents are Accurate
As I stated in the title of this review, both the title and contents of this book (for the most part) are pretty much accurate as far as this book being a, "step-by-step guide to Krav Maga for beginners." However, I do feel that the authors went a bit overboard with their subtitle, "the world's easiest-to-learn, most effective fitness and fighting program." That however is merely a minor ...
Complete Krav Maga: The Ultimate Guide to Over 200 Self-Defense and Combative Techniques
Ulysses Press, 2007
Great book on self-defense
This is a very good book on the techniques and combatives involved in self-defense. It uses a relatively small syllabus of moves that can be used in many different defense situations. It is the fighting style of the Israeli Defense Forces, and everyone knows how good the Israelis are at self-preservation, they have fought many wars and won. According to the author the techniques are easy to ...
The Little Black Book of Violence: What Every Young Man Needs to Know About Fighting
YMAA Publication Center, 2009
Of major importance!
The Little Black Book of Violence is a book that has come at the right time! As a practicing martial artist/teacher in the traditional sense, and an ex-high school teacher, I wish I had this book when I was teaching in the school system. Though it is at times graphic - because it is honest and totally realistic - this book should be read by every young adult so that they can understand the ...
