I read this while on a cultural exchange trip to Guanajuato Mexico...it certainly opened my eyes to the lengths immigrants are going to when trying to enter our country.
Long Day's Journey into Night
Yale University Press
As Good As It Gets
I had a friend once tell me that he had just read this play and had decided it was overrated. From that point on, I never considered anything he had to say very important. He had pretty much revealed his inner workings and I saw him for the ignoramus he is. I have read this play numerous times, seen play versions with Ralph Richardson and Jack Lemmon playing James Tyrone. It's a beautiful play, a ...
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
What a classic children's story should be.
I really don't know what I can add that other reviewers haven't already said. But I echo the other fantastic reviews for this gem. This is the first book by Kate DiCamillo that I have read. I read it first for myself. Then I read it aloud for my 6 year old daughter - a few chapters a night. She adored this book! She looked forward to our bedtime readings every night. This story of about ...

Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives
The meaning of life
Is there anything more important that knowing the meaning of life? Michael Newton is bravely going where no man has gone before. Sure, there have been people who have written books about their Near Death Experiences. Sure there are mediums, clairvoyants, psychics and prophets, but while they all tell us what it's like to die, maybe that we have multiple lives, but no one has ever told us ...
Golf's Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia
David L. Cook
This is excellent. I read it in a day I couldn't put it down. I am a begining golfer and I love the lessons. I am an artist so painting lesson was great and the game with the cowboys I've played and thought when I've played it this would be a great way to putt. It's a thought prevoking, full of spiritual and golf wisdom. After all, golf can be spiritual when we let it. This is a ACE! AKA HOLE ...
The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey
Random House Trade Paperbacks
First thing, locate the roadmaps near the end of the book
The Journey of Man is a reasonably well-written book with a fascinating story. But you will find it MUCH easier to follow the story if the first thing you do is find the diagram and migration map that in my paperback copy are on pages 181 and 182-3: Figure 9 Genealogical tree showing the relationship among the Y-chromosome markers discussed in the text Figure 10 The spread of Y-chromosome ...
The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition
Michael Wiese Productions
I've got a Bible, and It's Called [Title Here]
I could NEVER for the life of me get into Joseph Campbell. I did my due diligence and read and watched The Power of Myth and was all psyched to get jiggy with the thousand faces. But I couldn't hang man. Joseph Campbell is one boring writer. I woke up when I was 20 and realized academic style writing is just not for me. I don't do it anymore. It's unnecessary. If you could really explain ...
The Hundred-Foot Journey: A Novel
Richard C Morais
Best Book I Read This Year
A very rich story. Beautifully written. Great contrast of cultures and characters. The Hundred-Foot Journey is great book.
The Incredible Journey
Delacorte Books for Young Readers
One of the most heart-warming stories about pets ever written
This book and the associated Disney movie was the talk of my elementary school. All of my friends praised them to the skies and while I have never seen the movie, this is the second time that I have read the book. It is without question one of the most heart-warming stories about pets ever devised. Two dogs and a cat are taken from their home and sent to live elsewhere while their owner is on ...
Journey Through the New Testament
Harcourt Religious Publishers
Let's be fair!
The above is really a review of the seller, not the book, and clearly doesn't belong here! I know and have taught from this high school textbook and find it very sound and helpful.
Journey to the Heart: Daily Meditations on the Path to Freeing Your Soul
Divine messages that speak to my heart
Journey to Heart is my evening meditation reading. I travel with Melody as she reflects on the physical, emotional, and spiritual journey that she took. I love the messages that she shares. They reflect the divine that she experienced and they speak to the divine in me. The title says it all; a wonderful journey that gives the soul wings.
Invitation to a Journey: A Road Map for Spiritual Formation
M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
Insightful, Practical, Helpful
This book was a wonderful surprise to me when I picked it up. It was given to me as a textbook for a class I was teaching, and I honestly began to read it without any particular expectation. It has turned out to be one of the more practically helpful and insightful books on spiritual formation I have read. It is well organized, and very accessible. Two strengths in particular stand out to ...
Psychology: A Journey
John O. Mitterer
I was happy with my order
my order was before the hurrican Katrina, but my book still came on time. The book was used but it was like new with all the CD and code inside. I saved my money by ordering this book from Amazon for my class.
The Worst Journey in the World (Penguin Classics)
An unforgettable journey
The story of an unforgettable journey. This book has details of the journeys undertaken in 1910-1912 by the men of this polar expedition. Their courage and "never give up" attitude are a testament of the type of men they were. Reading the account of their adventures from the diaries of several different men gives a more complete perspective than the diary of one man could give. Definitely an ...
Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips
This book was more than I expected. The pictures and detail to this book are unbelievable. This is a great book for anyone the enjoys traveling
WHAT A TOUCHING AND WONDERFUL STORY. THIS IS ALLEN SAY AT HIS BEST!
There really is not much to dislike about any book that Allen Say has had anything to do with. Let's face it, he has been and is one of the best in the business. Likewise, there is very little, if anything, to dislike about the work being reviewed here, Grandfather's Journey. Now the only slight trepidation I had concerning this work was that I noted it was a Caldecott award winner. This is ...
The Journey from Abandonment to Healing: Turn the End of a Relationship into the Beginning of a New Life
the Journey from Abandonment to Healing
I have done a good deal of therapy over the years but never heard (or read) the specific information I read in this book. It has been incredibly helpful. I keep wondering why no other therapist had this information? I learned that abandonment has specific symptoms and results in specific relationship disabilities. Ms.Anderson clearly enumerates exercises that can help the sufferer overcome the ...
