Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big
Small Giants is Real Wisdom
I read a lot of business books. Some of them are informative, while others truly stand out as an inspiration of what "can be." Small Giants discusses the importance of building community within your organization and the those you touch. This has been an important theme with me of late, and the value that it brings is immense. The companies interviewed all reached a crucial tipping point where ...
Facing Your Giants: The God Who Made a Miracle Out of David Stands Ready to Make One Out of You
Max Lucado's book "Facing Your Giants" is modernly poetic. Lucado's style of writing is sophisticated yet understatedly simple. In this book Lucado takes the reader on a journey through the life of biblical hero David. You see David's good and bad and how he faces his giants the different times of his life. I think it's important to learn from other people's mistakes, it allows you to save ...

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County
Grand Central Publishing
Good things come in Big packages too!
About: A young woman who is looked upon as a "giant" because she is abnormally large and treated with indifference and sometimes with cruelty. Descriptive Words: heartbreaking, uplifting, mystical old world qualities. Thoughts: When this book came out last year I read quite a few favorable and not so favorable reviews. I knew that this was one that I wanted to read for myself. I'm glad that ...
James and the Giant Peach
One of my Favorites!!
It's to be another Roald Dahl classic this week, Esteemed Reader. Whoo hoo! As you know, Roald Dahl is my favorite author and James and the Giant Peach is one of my all-time favorite stories. It's the sort of book that will convince even the Mike TV's of the world to pause their video games and not unpause them until the book is finished. In my quest to better understand middle grade fiction ...
Odd and the Frost Giants
This is a great book for kids (and adults)!
I've never been a big fan of Neil Gaiman's adult fantasy books, but his books for younger readers are excellent! Like Coraline and the Graveyard Book, Odd and the Frost Giants takes some very adult themes and situations (injury, the death of Odd's father, an abusive stepparent) and crafts a beautiful and big-hearted children's story out of it. Odd is a great character who is fairly stoic, but ...

Bear & Company
Do we want to learn the truth?
Do we, humanity want to learn the truth about our origin and history? If you have the courage and the curiousity to look at humanity and it's history in a very different way from what we learned at school or in bible studies, then this book is for you! Meticulously researched and presented it is a delight to read. I read it in one and a half days and I was sad when I finished it.
Orbiting the Giant Hairball: A Corporate Fool's Guide to Surviving with Grace
Still an important work after over 10 years
This book is not filled with prescriptions. It isn't intended to be a "how to" manual or a handbook of best practices to help you survive organizational dysfunction. It's grist for the mill of personal and group reflection in an often maddening world--a mirror to help break the bounds of organizational conformity. As such, it's best in the hands of leaders and followers committed to ...

While the author provides incredible detail and analysis on our actions, decisions, behaviors, etc, he also provides practical exercises and guidance to get started making changes today. He discusses the difference between decisions and preferences, the 5 steps to make important changes now, and his patented Neuro-Associative ...
Shadow of the Giant (Ender, Book 8) (Ender's Shadow)
Orson Scott Card
Tor Science Fiction
Better than Ender itself
Once again, Orson Scott Card created an epic, which is worth every penny and every second spent reading it. Got me hooked till the last page, much like every other book in this series. Not like the original Ender series, however, where only the first book was worth it, and then it got progressively worse. I know that the writer tried something different, more deep and philosophic in those books. ...
I Kill Giants
Lovely, Wonderful, and One of a Kind
The very first giant, Ur, was the result of a union between the earth and sky. When he became too lonely from being the only of his kind, he tore himself apart, creating a group of other giants: swamp giants, mountain giants, frost giants, and, worst of all, titans. They're unstoppable. We know this because Barbara Thorson explains it just so. Barbara is waiting for the giants to come, at ...
Giants in the Earth: A Saga of the Prairie (Perennial Classics)
Ole Edvart Rolvaag
Harper Perennial Modern Classics
Giants of the Earth
Service from Amazon is superb! Giants of the Earth arrived in great shape and is the thought provoking story I remember. Rolvaag presents the story of the settling of South Dakota territory in a very personal and stirring manner. I use the used book system from Amazon often. Thank you for the consistent quality.
Escaping the Giant Wave
Greatest Book of All Time
My son is 9, and this is his review.....People who would like this book are people who like action. I like the book because it is about a brother and sister that go on a trip to Oregon. The parents go on a cruise, so the brother is watching the sister. Then an earthquake hits. It's very suspensful and a little scary. I could picture myself in this situation. It helped me see how good my life ...
The Giant Jam Sandwich (Sandpiper Book)
John Vernon Lord
All time favorite at our house
This book is a clear favorite of my kids (3 1/2). The pictures are engaging and funny, and the text is simple but clever rhymes. We read this book repeatedly and it never gets old. My daughter has read it so many times that she sometimes "reads" it to herself, getting most of the text correct. I highly recommend it.
The Iron Giant
A children's book
I bought this book because I loved the movie. This was also a really cool book, but it's very different from the movie. There are actually only a few concepts taken from this book that made it into the movie--a) that the iron giant can fix himself, b) that the boy's name is Hogarth, and c) that the iron giant eats metal. Nothing else is the same, really. Brad Bird is a genius to make the ...
Restless Giant (Oxford History of the United States)
James T. Patterson
Oxford University Press, USA
Balanced view of the period
What I liked best about the book was sense of balance. It discussed good things and bad things about both Reagan & Clinton, the two most controversial presidents of the period. It was also a period of enormous social change, much more so than the sixties. Patterson could have made the point that the 70's were the time when the social experiments of the sixties came to fruition.
Giants: The Parallel Lives of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln
Giants is a superb dual biography on two nineteenth century giants: Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln
Two giants of American history. One white and one black. Abraham Lincoln (1809-65) sixteenth President of the United States and Frederick Douglass (1818-95) the orator, abolitonist, women rights advocate and a spokesman for the poor slave yearning to be free in pre-bellum nineteenth century America. In this fascinating book John Stauffer traces the rise of these two "self-made men" (to coin a ...
Facing Your Giants Study Guide
Good book, very eye-opening.
Very encouraging book for Christians struggling with overcoming issues in their lives. Found it very enlightening.
One Giant Leap
The surreal quality of this book brings the moon landing back to life!
The lunar module, Eagle, separated from the Columbia and began its descent to the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin looked down at the moon with amazement. "Its billion-year-old landscape [was] cracked and scarred. Its surface gouged and cratered and pitted with many holes." It was an adventure the world's eyes were riveted on, one they would never forget. It was July 20, 1969 and they ...
Giants Past & Present
If you're a Giants fan, you NEED this book
As a lifelong Giants fan, I can legitimately say that this is the book I've been waiting all my life for. (Granted, not enough space was devoted to the mid- to late-70s Giants teams of my youth -- and justifiably so for anyone who didn't grow up watching horrible baseball in San Francisco at that time -- but it's a small oversight in comparison to all the things that were done right within these ...
