Standing at Water's Edge: Moving Past Fear, Blocks, and Pitfalls to Discover the Power of Creative Immersion
New World Library
One of the best books on creativity
This book came to me during a time when I was frustrated with the lack of "immersion" in my life and especially when it came to my painting. Reading this book really helped to normalize the stage I was stuck in, which Anne Paris refers to as the "Disengagement" stage of the creative process. Her book puts a face to what many of us artists experience and struggle with during the entering and ...

He analyzes what is new in media art by balancing recent works and historic media development, and so retells art history as media history. An interdisciplinary study in art history, media ...
Insider's Guide to Beijing 2008
True Run Media
We took this with us for a 9 day trip to Beijing and it had more information, and more information that no one else publishes, than all the other guidebooks put together. The sassy essays scattered throughout are fun as well as informative, and the listings are amazingly complete and with the kind of details you want when you are figuring out how to choose from among similar sounding shops or ...
Ethnography for Marketers: A Guide to Consumer Immersion
Dr. Hy Mariampolski
Sage Publications, Inc
This man is state of the art - and this field of research is growing fast.
Ethnography is about "living with the tribe" and understanding holistically the significance of what they say and do. In recent years since the mid-1990s, this school has grown increasingly attractive for marketers and researchers simply because classic phone surveys and focus groups have not fully explained consumer behaviour. Researchers want, and need, to go deeper. Here, Hy Mariampolski - ...
Extraordinary Swimming For Every Body - a Total Immersion instructional book
Total Immersion Swimming
Great development of original
As someone who was inspired by Terry Laughlin's first book, I highly recommend this one! I am a former competitive swimmer who now swims for fitness. I was becoming bored with conventional interval-type training, and was looking for new ways to change up my routine with flippers, hand paddles, etc. Terry describes technique training in a refreshing direct way that anyone who wishes to improve ...
Total Immersion: A Mikvah Anthology
Total Immersion in the beauty of Judaism
I read this book with an open, but skeptical heart. I am a recent convert to Judaism, single, and searching for where I am comfotrable in the plethora of traditions and decisions, and the question of niddah and mikvah observances arose. I have always been interested in the tradition, but it wasn't until I stepped into a mikvah myself that I felt the embracing arms of Judaism so completely. Ms. ...

My 3yrs old daugther LOVES it! After only a few weeks, she can sing songs such as "Los Colores" and "Las Vocales" on her own. She also counts up to thirteen in Spanish already! The songs are really entertaining and easy to sing. We have been impressed by the quality of the DVD, the CD and the book. The pictures in the book are colorful and easily demonstrate the concepts being taught. My ...

7 Steps to Success in Dual Language Immersion: A Brief Guide for Teachers and Administrators
Annette Rickert Smith
A how-to-book for beginners of Bilingual education
This book is easy and quick to read, which makes it great for what it was intended: a beginning reference for how to start a bilingual program. I've observed a school who used this book as their reference for getting set up. The school was AMAZING! If this book helped create the level of student achievement which I observed in that school, then I give a hearty recommendation. It even covers ...
Instant Immersion Spanish Audio Deluxe (Instant Immersion) [UNABRIDGED] (Spanish Edition)
Topics Entertainment (Narrator)
Very pleased with Spanish audio CD's
After taking two years of Spanish in college about ten years ago, I needed a good review prior to a trip to Peru. This 8 audio CD set is ideal for re-learning the language. It is an excellent review. I believe it could also be a good learning tool for someone who wants to commit the time to listen diligently and practice with the audio CD's and learn the language for the first time. I ...
Snorkel: Immersions in Time
Louis A Galiano
Now into my third reading of Snorkel, I'm compelled to write this review, not merely to share my favorable opinion, but because I think this book deserves a wide audience. The first time I read it, I was engaged by a story with interesting and rather unusual characters, engaging dialogue and the elegant use of English and some other languages. There were passages that I glossed over as being ...
German Levels 1, 2 & 3 (Instant Immersion)
Not Available (NA)
German 1,2, 3
I'm an airline pilot and travel a lot. The Instant Immersion German was everything I needed to get a great start learning the language. I have used it regularly, and it's never let me down. Everything about the product is easy to use, and from day one its been a big help in learning a new language. I've tried the other more expensive products, and none of them are as good, or as easy to use. I ...
Triathlon Swimming Made Easy: The Total Immersion Way for Anyone to Master Open-Water Swimming
The definitive book on triathlon swimming
This is the best book you can buy on swimming. Period. In fact, most triathlon training books refer the reader to Terry Laughlins Total Immersion (TI) program, which is explained most clearly in this book. (Don't buy the out-dated book entitled "Total Immersion." I've read it; it's good; but it doesn't fully reflect the author's most recent ideas on swimming drills.) When you buy the book, you ...
Eloquent Books, 2010
Excellent story telling
An excellent trip to small town west texas. The author really captures the essence of small town life and politics. I grew up in a small town much like Cinimon and relate to the picture the author is painting. I hope Sherry writes another book soon. I will be watching for it. Hayden Charles
James R. Whitley
A New Voice
This is the third collection of poetry that I have read from Poet James Whitley. Each chapbook reveals a deeper understanding of Mr. Whitley's feelings on being of African descent, being a man, being a feeling being. Immersion embodies a poet honing his craft. Immersion earns a place by my nightstand.
Righter Publishing Company, Inc, 2009
Immerision is a fun and fast paced book. Very interesting characters and smooth writing style. I love Sci-ficition and Fantasy books this one is no exception. I am looking forward to more books from this author. Particularly about the character named Aubrey.
