Leave It to Psmith: Frantic fun at Blandings Castle
P. G. Wodehouse
An enjoyable jaunt from a classic British novelist
You'll chuckle throughout the novel as you follow the comedy of errors and convoluted connections in Leave it to Psmith (the `p' is silent). A large cast of characters descends on Blandings Castle for somewhat nefarious reasons. An enjoyable jaunt from a classic British novelist.
Frances and Alice
As readers who are discovering Frances Lynn's amazing novel, "Frantic" are beginning to pass the word around, this book reads like a movie. Instantly, from the very first page, it takes over one's eyes to the full as it travels across a marvelous screen that has suddenly popped up in one's mind (Even"Frantic's" wardrobe department contains some of the best add ons we've ever seen in print.) ...
Frantic Planet: Volume II
A solid number two
Frantic Planet Volume II is topped and tailed by two lengthy novellas which look at the uneasy relationship between modern society and the individual. "Via Delarosa" is a witty insight into fame, specifically the way celebrity culture and modern media can bring fame without achievement to people unprepared for its effects. Encompassing moments of comedic caper and psychological darkness, this is ...
Waiting for Birdy: A Year of Frantic Tedium, Neurotic Angst, and the Wild Magic of Growing a Family
The BEST book!
This has to be my all-time favorite book. I've had it for almost 4 years now, since I was pregnant with my daughter. Now, reading it again (this is probably the 10-15th time I've read it) while pregnant with our next child, it is STILL laugh out loud funny (literally). My husband will hear me laughing those great belly laughs and immediately knows the book I'm reading (again.) Can't recommend ...
Frantic Transmissions to and from Los Angeles: An Accidental Memoir
Braverman's New World
I lucked out two months back and acquired an uncorrected proof of "Frantic Transmissions to and From Los Angeles", and even though I was fairly familiar with her novels (especially the dreamy and harshly poetic re-imagination of Frida Kahlo in "Incantations of Frida K"), this nominal memoir of the place knocked me out, tied me up and left me pained and pleasured in ways only the best writing can ...
A great EMS-police crime/thriller written by Katherine Howell, a former Australian "ambulance officer." One of the main characters is a woman paramedic, the other is a female detective. The paramedic's husband, a police officer, gets shot and their baby is kidnapped. From that point on it is a nonstop rush to the conclusion. There are many EMS scenes -- as authentic as you will find in any book. ...
Superjock: The loud, frantic, nonstop world of a rock radio DJ
H. Regnery Co
How it REALLY was on the radio in th '70s.
Very simply, there would be no Don Imus, Howard Stern or Tom Leykis had Lujack not proved first that crabbiness could win on the radio. Ruling the airwaves in Seattle when Imus was still a railroad worker, Lujack was belicose, sarcastic and witty between Beatles and Motown records. No library should be without it!

Frantic Planet is the literary bridge between reality and surreality. The stories include three separate realities: the world we inhabit and know (complete with effectively apt cultural references); our world as it could be without social constraints; and a world where our laws of physics do not apply. The collection veers back and forth between these different worlds which, in the hands of a ...

"Do-Able" Segments Are The Key Here
As a professional writer, I've learned that if I say: "I'm going to write Chapter 1 today," chances are it won't get done. BUT, if I give myself a goal of "I'm going to outline Chapter 1 and flesh out my characters," I have a much better chance of accomplishing that "do-able" goal. Well, this book is the hallmark of listing do-able tasks--nothing overwhelming, nothing particularly ...

The Three Big Questions for a Frantic Family: A Leadership Fable About Restoring Sanity To The Most Important ...
Applying business concepts to the family sensibly
First, I think Patrick Lencioni's books are somewhat unique. The books, from The Five Temptations of a CEO right on through to The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family, all use the tool of a story to get the message across. This style, alone, does not make them unique. The fact that the author gives you a 20-40 page non-fiction book at the end of the fable does indeed make them different. Some ...

Frantic Family Cookbook
Champion Press (WI)
Recipes even your kids will love!
This book is chockfull of recipes that are quick and easy to make - plus even my picky 10 year old will eat them. The only reason I didn;t give it 5 stars is that I think it could have been printed a little nicer. The ink ran a little when I got one of the pages wet. So just be careful about those splats. Otherwise this is a great cookbook to add to your family's collection.
