Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation
As a simple story about an underdog national rugby team beating all odds to win a championship, this would be a very good story. What makes this story great, is that team has been chosen (by newly elected South African president Nelson Mandela) as a way to unite a South Africa torn by divisions caused by decades of government enforced segregation of blacks and pave the way for reconciliation ...
With This Ring, I Thee Dread
Ruth Ann Nordin's Books, 2009
No Steamy Padding, Just Sheer Enjoyment
This is the first e-book I've read by Ruth Ann Nordin, and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. I totally enjoyed it. Unlike many romance novels today that are more soft core pornography, Ms. Nordin's books are sensitive well written stories with beautiful characters you can fall in love with, page by page, no padding needed. She had me hooked by the first chapter. As a self-published ...

The Works of H. Beam Piper (32 books)
3 reviews, 2009
Oldies and goodies
Little Fuzzy is here but Lord Kalvan is missing. Many of his other "time" stories are represented as well as some non-science-fiction tales. Of particular interest to me was the short biography of Mosby. H. Beam Piper has the ability to tell a story simply and clearly and yet deal with subjects that can be convoluted and twisted. If you are a returning reader, you will feel at home ...
Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies
Crown Forum, 2007
Well researched and written.
I have read many books on this subject and none have been so well researched. I was very skeptical when I first read this book. Any one who defended Joe McCarthy surely was out of their mind. I was wrong. Much of the research is that of primary sources (a must if you want credibility in your writing) and the writing was not of an apologist nature but one that interpreted the facts and presented ...
Enemy Pie (Reading Rainbow book)
One of the Best....

A heart warming story of how a father helps his young son get rid of his one and only enemy by making him his friend instead. A life lesson we all could learn told in a way that will keep any childs attention. This is a must have book for your childs ...
Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation
A miracle for Mandela and Rugby
First of all I am an American, so no genes give me empathy for rugby. I was drawn to the original book by Mr. Carlin due to the movie Invictus. What I got was a wonderful expanse of what has made South Africa the miracle of the 20th century. With an awful experiment of apartheid and dispicable Boers behavior comes the saintly Nelson Mandela after 27 years in prison for organizing direct ...
Your Three-Year-Old: Friend or Enemy
Louise Bates Ames
Frances L. Ilg
All behaviors are the same no matter where you live or year you are living in
After reading some of these reviews myself, I decided to purchase this book to form my own opinion. What I'm hearing from these reviews are that the book is not current. In all actuallity, behaviors are the same no matter what country you live in, or what year we are living in. Whether it be in children or adults. Who is to really say an "updated" book is the better way to go? All we as adults ...

Hamilton's Curse: How Jefferson's Arch Enemy Betrayed the American Revolution--and What It Means for ...
Crown Forum, 2008
Time to reconsider Jefferson
In view of the recent textbook debates in Texas, there has been a resurgence of interest in Thomas Jefferson. With Hamilton being the perpetual enemy of Jefferson, the time for this book is now. DiLorenzo's handling of the Jeffersonian view of government and its rival view epitomized in Alexander Hamilton is timely and needed. The book was enlightening in detailing how Alexander Hamilton's ideas ...
In the Presence of the Enemy
Excellent mystery novel, Problems with main characters
Ms. George's series of mysteries involving Lynley and Havers are wonderful despite some of the criticisms I list below. In the Presence of the Enemy is a vehicle that shows Elizabeth George's technical skills as both a mystery novelist and a wordsmith. The story is sufficiently complex and intriguing to provide a memorable and enjoyable journey. Despite the very positive review the main ...
Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and Its Fashionable Enemies
Yale University Press, 2009
cogent, articulate response to the "new" atheists
This book exosed the "new atheism" for what it is...shallow, narrow-minded, dogmatic, uninformed, and poorly-conceived. I have much more respect for the old atheists, like Nietzsche and Camus. At least they were willing to draw out the logical end of what collective atheism looks like. Despite the fact that Richard Dawkins does not realize it, one cannnot just "be good" after attempting to ...
The Last Christian on Earth: Uncover the Enemy's Plot to Undermine the Church
A Wake-Up Call
For those who have had the pleasure of reading Os Guinness' work previously, they will be pleased to know that "The Last Christian on Earth" is characteristically full of his sharp insight and wisdom. For those who haven't read Guinness before, it's time. And this is a good one to start with. The book serves as an urgent wake-up call to the Church. Much of what Guinness writes is sobering; ...
The Enemy Within
Forge Books, 2006
Sets a new standard for its genre
Having read quite a few books in this genre, I feel that seldom has a book been so engrossing, informative and brutally (and sometimes depressingly) honest in its coverage of the operations of secret service, CIA, FBI and the government spy business. If that isn't enough it's all wrapped up in a story you can't put down. The people and the situations are "warts-and-all" real. Those with ...

America's Secret War: Inside the Hidden Worldwide Struggle Between the United States and Its Enemies

Was there more to the War on Terror than was published in newspapers and on the Internet? George Friedman, author of The Next 100 Years and founder of Stratfor, a global forecasting firm, asserts in "America's Secret War" that in the past decade there was much behind-the-scenes maneuvering that escaped many analysts and American citizens. Friedman relates how the War on Terror had its roots ...
