The Outsider: A Journey Into My Father's Struggle With Madness
A Book Everyone Should Read
I truly believe this book should be read by everyone, not just people that are going into the mental health field. I was required to ready it for a Social Work class I am currently taking at the undergraduate level; however, I can say without a doubt it is by far the best book I have ever read! Lachenmeyer really brings home the stigma and heartache that is experienced by people and their loved ...

Milk, Money, and Madness: The Culture and Politics of Breastfeeding
Naomi Baumslag M.D. M.P.H.
Dia L. Michels
I wish this book were out of date and irrelevant!
This definitive history of formula, pharmaceutical companies and infant death is highly readable, despite its depressing topic. While it would be comforting to think that formula fed babies only die at a higher rate than breastfed in places without access to clean water that just ain't so -- never has been, never will be, and the companies which make formula know that. Which is why the code of ...
The Winners Manual: For the Game of Life
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
This is very inspiring and worth a read or listen. I would highly recommend if you want wisdom to strenghen your resolve to be your very best!
The Quiet Room: A Journey Out of the Torment of Madness
Grand Central Publishing
Great book! Great price! Great service!
The book arrived as promised--in good condition and on time (actually before I expected it). Couldn't ask for better service.
Zombie Factory: 27 Tales of Bizarre Comix Madness from Beyond the Tomb
Idea Men Productions
A fun collection
Zombie Factory is a collection of the "factory seconds" of the horror comic industry of the Sixties. Not on the same level of artistic competence as the first rate publishers (like Marvel and Warren) but over all much more enjoyable.
Stalking Irish Madness: Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia
Stalking Irish Madness:Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia
I really enjoyed this book immensely. It was so sad and it hit home with my own feelings. I was impressed with his writing and the history was great and the best part was his love for his sisters. It was shared already with several people that have children affected by this disease by far the worst disease on earth. It robs young people of a life. I enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it.
Seduced by Madness
HarperCollins e-books, 2007
Cuckoo for Coco Puffs: A new classic of the genre
Every so often in the true crime genre author and subject come together in an almost fated way to produce a book that illuminates not only the crime but the times that produced it. McGinniss's Blind Faith, Stumbo's Until the Twelfth of Never, Alexander's Very Much a Lady and Rule's The Stranger Beside Me are among the select few and now they are joined by Carol Pogash's Seduced by Madness. This ...
Winterdance: Fine Madness of Alaskan Dog-racing
Orion mass market paperback
More Than Just a Dog Story
If you love dogs, you absolutely have to read this book. And, if you don't love dogs, you still absolutely have to read this book because it is so rich in its enthusiasm for living life and meeting its challenges that it would be a shame to miss it. Paulsen enters the Iditarod, but the book is much more than his account of the race. His description of preparing for the race is rich in humor ...
FINE DINING MADNESS : The rules & realities of fine dining
After reading this work of art, to say the least, I am officialy gonna quit reading all together, cause every other book will be a complete waste of time. I'd be better off reading this book over and over again and sharing with my friends by giving them out as Christmas gifts.
Hitler's Death Camps: The Sanity of Madness
Konnilyn G. Feig
Holmes & Meier Publishers
I read this book when I was 16, after FINALLY watching a copy of "Schindler's List". From the moment I began the movie, I was entranced by the Holocaust and immediately wanted to read as much as I could about this dark time in Our History. As I expected, there isn't that much available to a 16 year old (I am 19 now), but this book was enough and then some! It is amazing how the author goes ...

One Night of Madness
Oak Harbor Publishing
A sensitively told story of the heinous murder of three black children
I was a professor of Aeronautical Engineering at Mississippi State University in the 1970s, and Stokes McMillan was one of my students. I recently became aware that he had written a book, "One Night of Madness". McMillan has written a meticulously researched book chronicling the heinous murder of three black children in rural Mississippi by three white racists in the winter of 1950. The ...
Guitar World Presents: Dimebag Darrell's Riffer Madness
Alfred Publishing Co., Inc.
Note for Note...
First off, the basis for this book was the 48 installments that Dimebag Darrell had written for Guitar World. So to say that i would have high hopes is most definately an understatement. Having this book teach some of Dime's greatest riffs, along with solos and technique for warm-ups and certain phrases. I know it kinda sucks that he's not featured on the cd, but you have to think, this Guitar ...
Love And Madness
I usually prefer poetry to prose, but with some authors I make exceptions. This was one of the BEST books I've ever read. I got it early this year and the story is still with me. [...] I read this book with relish. And no, I don't know the author. Now to the story itself. You will find no really literary prose here, the storyline and what happens to the characters is the really interesting ...
Montessori Madness! A Parent to Parent Argument for Montessori Education
A compelling and personal argument for Montessori Education
We recently ordered this book after wanting to know more about the Montessori education our child receives and to help us decide how long we would keep our child enrolled at his Montessori school. The book really catches your attention as Trevor Eissler tells the story of his family's journey to Montessori education and as he describes the environment where his children attend school. The book is ...

What I think of Moomin Summer Madness
It is such an excellent book, I plan to read it over and over again. I recommend it to everybody - children and adults alike (it was actually an adult who recommended it to me first!!) I'm going to make my mum read it too. It is a magical book and I now want to read all the moomin books. Please give it a try.

Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness
Edgar Allan Poe
Tales of Mystery and Madness
I have never been a fan of Gris Grimly's writing -- his rhyming poetry is truly and deeply cringe-inducing, as evidenced in these samples from his book Wicked Nursery Rhymes: 'After his instruction's through, he leaves to go find someone new. When he chooses to meander, he flies away upon his gander.' -- from the poem Father Grim 'She would scream, curse, spit, and swear. She said ...
Saturday Afternoon Madness
Four Horseman Press
I Roadtripped with Waldo!
A year after Bob and Phil's excellent adventure, I had the extreme pleasure of roadtripping from Charlottesville, Virginia (Where Waldo was holed-up putting the finishing touches on the book) to New Orleans to see Florida State University and The University of Florida play in the Sugar Bowl. It was by far one of the most memorable experiences of my life. (Notwithstanding Waldo's penchant for ...
