The Imperfect Enjoyment
Irc Books, 2008
I loved this book, and it was a truly a fun read. It is for all adults regardless of age race or gender.
Time well spent!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were many twists and turns that kept me captivated. It was a very good read; especially when you think you know it all. As with all good mysteries, it is very easy to identify with the motivation of the main characters. The side stories added a great deal to this writing. I await his next work!
The Chronic Illness Experience: Embracing the Imperfect Life
8 reviews, 1999
Very strong on getting help, relationships and communication
This book is not so much about self-care -- exercise, diet, medications, relaxation and such -- but it is very strong on getting the support you need to live successfully with a chronic condition. I used her material extensively in writing The Art of Getting Well: Maximizing Health When You Have a Chronic Illness. Most of us don't like to ask for help. It makes us feel weak, guilty, needy or ...
My Mother Never Taught Me Songs: Memoirs of Growing Up in an Imperfect World
Lilian S. Barber
A must read!
My Mother Never Taught Me Songs is a gem of a book. I found that I could relate to it on many levels. I applaud Lilian for the way she overcame the problems that life threw her way. I met Mrs. Barber at a dog show last year, before reading her book. She is as kind and gentle as her Italian Greyhounds! I would never have guessed that she had to overcome all that she did. What a remarkable woman, ...
It's A Wonderful Imperfect Life: Daily Encouragement for Women Who Strive Too Hard to Make It Just Right
A repository of long sought relief
I still remember seeing a tweet with the title of Joan C. Webb's most recent book It's A Wonderful (Imperfect) Life. The title rang out like a shot to me and I was quite certain there had to be a typo in the tweet, as the words "wonderful" and "imperfect" seemed totally unrelated not to mention oddly paired. A quick online search proved me wrong. By that time my interest had been piqued both ...
The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect (Marvel's Finest)
Marvel Entertainment Group
The enemy is me.
Another masterpiece from the mind of Peter David, Future Imperfect is praised by fans and critics not only as some of his best Hulk work, but as some of his best work overall! Brought forward in time ninety years and arriving in a post-apocalyptic future, the Hulk is beseeched by a group of resistance fighters to take down the being responsible for all the devastation. A being known only as ...
The Problem of Life With God: Living With a Perfect God in an Imperfect World
Broadman & Holman Publishers
Michael Goni Reviews "The Problem of Life With God"
If you do not have this book in your library...get it! It is a fabulous expose' on why the human race exists. In particular, I see it as a great book to give to a non-believing person who has so many questions about life and its situations. Even more important, Christian believers can put in perspective why things happen in life and how to approach them. I plan to buy 10 copies to give away as a ...
The Cat Who'll Live Forever : The Final Adventures of Norton, the Perfect Cat, and His Imperfect Human
Everyone who loves cats should know Norton.
Wonderful cat and wonderful owner. Norton had quite the life. I am so glad I was able to know him even if it was only through the books about him.
Imperfect Harmony: How to Stay Married for the Sake of Your Children and Still Be Happy
A Radical, Realistic, and Useful Book
As a pastor, I have read many books on the subject of helping marriages because that is an important part of my ministry. However, this is the most radical, realistic and useful book I have ever seen. It is applicable not only to the average marriage but also to the more challenging ones like depression, personality disorders, alcoholism, and addictions. I am very disappointed with many ...
Mother Daze: Tales from the Imperfect Playground
This is one book I will read again and again!
I knew when I finished this book I knew that I would pick it up again and again... whenever I needed a little "pick me up". Christine writes about motherhood and friendship in a fun and uplifting way. Her perspective is so relevant to what many moms are going through - and is she funny! I literally laughed out loud at many sections. She is a character and her character shines through. This is ...
Future Imperfect: Technology and Freedom in an Uncertain World
Cambridge University Press, 2008
Friedman At His Best
Future Imperfect is an economist's take on the radically unpredictable technological change to come over the next thirty years. It is thorough, fair, and well-reasoned. The first half focuses on changes in information technology, particularly in regard to privacy and encryption. I found this material somewhat dry, although it is especially well-researched due to the author's familiarity with ...
Because I Said Forever: Embracing Hope in an Imperfect Marriage
This book was written for me...
I would recommend this book to anybody having doubts about their marriage and feeling disappointed that their dreams they've held all their life have not held up in realty. The author gets into your head, knows your thoughts, because everything hypothetical situation she discussed I could relate to, either through my thoughts or by my actions. It's especially helpful if you have kids and you feel ...
As Good As I Could Be: A Memoir About Raising Wonderful Children in an Imperfect World
Simon & Schuster, 2001
a moving account of motherhood
Susan Cheever is unafraid to share her failings, her strengths, and her almost frightening love for her children. Her story is deeply personal, and yet, it shines a light on the double-edged sword all mothers are eventually nicked (and often cut) by -- devotion and rage towards one's children, the great humor and tragedy of parenting, feelings of wisdom and of utter bewilderment. A beautiful, ...
L&L Dreamspell, 2009
High-flying and heart-string-tweaking drama
I don't read much romance fiction, and yet I devoured "Past Imperfect." It's not a typical romance novel and perhaps that's why I enjoyed it so much. Diana isn't the typical simpering romance heroine. Adrian and Logan aren't run of the mill romance heroes, either. The writing itself will distinguish this book from most if not all romance novels. You will be immersed in Diana's world with all your ...
The Imperfect Board Member: Discovering the Seven Disciplines of Governance Excellence
Moving Board Members From Meddling to Monitoring
Jim Brown nails it. With big print, mind-grabbing graphics and a story line in the tradition of Ken Blanchard and Patrick Lencioni books, you'll value the author's seven disciplines in this leadership fable about business boards, nonprofit boards and faith-based boards. Example: "The best boards keep their noses in the business and their fingers out!" Brown warns, "The only way a board can ...
The Good Enough Child: How to Have an Imperfect Family and Be Perfectly Satisfied
Brad E. Sachs
Dr. Sachs's THE GOOD ENOUGH CHILD: HOW TO HAVE AN IMPERFECT FAMILY AND BE PERFECTLY SATISFIED, was a wonderful book to read. This is not because it excused me from the responsibilities of parenthood, but because it helped me to think carefully about how much responsibility is my own, and how much is my child's. I found the exercises at the end of each chapter particularly helpful when it came ...
Wow what a book!!!
This book is great reading. Lisa has done a fabulous job with imagery. I felt like I was right there in the scenes listening to the conversations and feeling every aspect of the story. Character development was done very well. WOW!!

Percy the Perfectly Imperfect Chicken
Stories for Children Magazine 5 Star Review
Reviewed by: Debbie Smart Percy THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT CHICKEN is a delightful rhyming story that follows "Percy" through a few growing pains. When Percy hatched out of his egg, all the other chickens in the flock came to give him a thorough inspection and to make sure he was "perfect" from his "beak to his toes." But when they look at his speckles they are colored red - instead of brown. ...
An Imperfect Offering: Humanitarian Action for the Twenty-First Century
Walker & Company
An Imperfect Offering
Dr. Orbinski's account of his life's work with Medecins sans Frontieres / Doctors without Borders reads like a thriller. Orbinski's stories from his Irish-Canadian childhood as the son of very poor Irish immigrants give insight to his passion to help the less fortunate. The memoirs of his MSF work in treacherous places like Somalia, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Sudan reveal the inner politics of ...
