Evil step mom!
Here is another awesome book by Maguire. I give it a 5 star. Just as a little warning - this story does contain a little more sex or inuendo than his other works. I love it! It's about snow white and the evil step mom. Yikes! Read it!
Trapped in the Mirror
A wake-up call in paperback
This book provides a great perspective to dealing with people who always seem to put what they want, they need, they like, etc. before all else. A detailed understanding of how this behavior develops, the sad reality of living in a self-contained world where empathy does not exist, and how to cope with those people in your life that fit this profile. An important book to read to better ...
WoD Mirrors (World of Darkness)
Worth the wait but sad
There are two principal reasons that any Storyteller (GM) must get this book. Yes, I said "must get." Reason one: it allows you to tailor/hack/modify/turn-on-its-head the Storytelling System that World of Darkness is built on. With this book you can inject more horror into Mage, more madness into Changeling, more degeneration into any mortals game. With this book you get (finally) rules for using ...
Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: Climate Change and Energy in the 21st Century
Cambridge University Press, 2010
Finally a reasonable voice in the climate debate
After hearing and reading a great deal in the popular press about climate change caused by human activities, I became convinced that most of what one hears on this subject is highly biased and unreliable. The problem is that almost everyone who speaks out on this controversial subject has either an economic interest, a political interest, or a professional career interest to advance by ...
A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America
Back Bay Books
A must-read history for all Americans
I read this book when it first came out and used it as a required reading for a number of undergraduate and graduate courses that I taught ever since. This is a U.S. history book like no other. Dr. Takaki introduced us to the narratives that have been silenced and ignored, all the while providing the historical contexts through which they were shaped, and in turn, helped shaping. Most ...
A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century
Barbara W. Tuchman
Distant Mirror: A Novel's Cornerstone
I owe a lot to Ms. Tuchman. You see, for five years I had conducted extensive research into the Knights Templar, and had a big gap:"the feel" of what it was like to live back then. My story THE TEMPLARS, TWO KINGS, AND A POPEtakes place between 1293-1315,and I found that A Distant Mirror gave me all I wanted to know about what it was like to be a knight, or a peasant, or a nobleman in those ...
Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know ($1 Uplifting Classics)
Uplifting Publications, 2009
A Grand Collection of Fairy Tales
This book contains a collection of excellent fairy tales, most of which my young daughter loves. These appear to be original versions, and not the Americanized versions made to be proper and more appealing to youngsters. Case in point is the story of The Three Bears, which bears striking differences to the version I grew up with. In this version, the girl's name is Silver-Hair and not Goldilocks, ...
A Stranger in the Mirror
Harper Collins, Inc., 2010
If i ever doubted how hard it is to fit in where one does not belong, how difficult it is to a get a break in Hollywood and how impossible it is to stay grounded if one did get a break, i don't anymore. This book is the usual rags to riches,fame and glory story of a vindictive protagonist, but it had its moments. Hey! I just realized that i could write that about every Sheldon novel. Genius!
Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse
Mirror mirror: a book of reversible verse
What fun! A new challenge for poetry writers. An amusing way to look at what a difference reverse wording can give to story. Could create a family game with this one.
Blood, Smoke and Mirrors
Samhain Publishing, Ltd., 2010
Great Paranormal Romance!
Originally Posted at:[...] I love the world of Blood, Smoke and Mirrors.

Mirror for Humanity: A Concise Introduction to Cultural Anthropology
McGraw-Hill Humanities/Social Sciences/Languages
Like Reading for Fun!
Learning cultural anthropology through this book is a joy ride. When I was reading, it actually felt like I was reading a New York Times Bestseller! This book captures you attention and it is never boring. I had to read this book for my intro to anthropology class and you can only imagine how fun studying for this class was. I've learned so much from it and I would read it again when I have ...

I highly, highly recommend it. Sandra Brown is a winner!!! I love everything she writes. I just finished Breath of Scandal -loved it, Slow Heat in Heaven - loved it, Charade - loved it!, Witness - ...
The Buddha in Your Mirror: Practical Buddhism and the Search for Self
A Great Explanation of Buddhism!
I loved this book! I was such an easy read but also so profound! I have shared it with friends who have also really enjoyed it; some actually started practicing Buddhism! My husband loved it too!
Baby Einstein: Mirror Me!
Favorite bedtime book since birth
We have incorporated this book into our bedtime ritual each night, and it is by far the favorite of the books we read. We started reading to her right after she was born, and of all of the board books we consistently received the most and best reaction from this one. She's now 7 months, and will immediately light up when we bring this book out. In addition, it has developed into a strong cue that ...
Mirrors of Time
Hay House, 2002
Mirrors of Time, CD & Booklet
The book is a review of what is on the CD. Each page is one subject. The CD has additional information besides what is on each page. It is quite interesting and you will find yourself completely relaxed and following the instructions on the CD. I find this a great way toward what I want for meditation. It is quite wonderful.
They Do It With Mirrors: A Miss Marple Mystery
HarperCollins e-books, 2004
WILL SOMEONE LET THE WOMAN SPEAK?
What "improvements" have been made for the Signet edition? There are already major differences in punctuation, word choices, and scene breaks between the original Collins and Dodd Mead (MURDER WITH MIRRORS) editions of this novel. There are further differences between the Dodd Mead editions republished by Random House/Avenel and the Dodd Mead editions republished by Simon & Shuster/Pocket. ...
Smoke, Mirrors, and Murder: And Other True Cases
A lot of battered women
There's a theme here: abused women. Rule cleans out her files by writing up some cases from as early as 1960, right up to the present with Mary Winkler, the docile preacher's wife from Tennessee who shotgunned her man and stunned the nation in 07. If you enjoy Rule's style, you won't be surprised by what's in this one.
The Mirror Test: Is Your Business Really Breathing?
Jeffrey W. Hayzlett
The businessperson's checklist
What happens (not literally) when advicemeister Dale Carnegie and marketing guru Seth Godin meet coaching terror Bobby Knight? This book by Hayzlett & Eber. It covers the essentials of successful business relationships and mindsets in the digital age, and motivates the reader to do what's necessary to win. While the subtitle of the book implies that the mirror test is used to see if your ...
Girl in the Mirror
Not at all what I expected
I truly loved this book and I didn't think I would. I think every woman can relate to not liking a physical feature of yourself - but the main character went through years or torment over hers. Granted, I sincerely doubt that 99.9% of us would have sooo much good fortune in our lives after altering a part of ourselves, but if you look beyond this one thing, the story itself is truly great.
The Man in the Mirror : Solving the 24 Problems Men Face
Excellent tool to add to your toolbox!
This book is more like a much needed "owners manual" of sorts. Morley has captured what is in our lives, hearts and that wacky "voice" and given us insight and tools to understand and accept as well as to fix what ails us. Use it as part of a fellowship of like men in prayer groups. Recall that where two or more are gathered in His name... together we can accomplish much and move those ...
