Searching for God Knows What
Thomas Nelson, 2004
Searching for God Knows What
Humanity is searching for the relationship it lost in the Garden of Eden. Today, I read Donald's Miller's book, "Searching for God Knows What." In his usual conversational yet poignant writing, Miller talks about his journey to discover who God and Jesus is and his discover of the essence of our faith. Miller takes a hard look at what Christianity has become. Many times, it's a cut and dry ...

Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software
Every other book is a second-hand account of this one
The other books on patterns I've read (Head First, Design Patterns Explained, Applying UML and Patterns) and articles around the net are just quoting this book and trying to introduce new examples with varying success. But the examples in this book are better and first-hand. The other ones are like "this guy said that this guy said that the bridge pattern is like this because other guy said they ...
Learning Python: Powerful Object-Oriented Programming
Good for learning, but should contain more exercises
I was looking for a book to learn Python and this was one of the more recommended ones available at the time. The first few chapters of this book are really interesting, but the author gets rather dry about 1/3 of the way into the book. I think that the author should have maintained that interesting tone through out the book instead of just letting it drop off after the first few chapters. ...

Streams in the Desert: 366 Daily Devotional Readings
One of my favorite devotionals
Streams in the Desert is a classic devotional that never grows old. It moves the heart and inspires the reader to a closer walk with God. I highly recommend it. It is especially good for someone with a love of the poetic as it includes moving poetry by one of my favorite poets, Annie Johnson Flint, among many others.
The Battle for Skandia: Book Four (Ranger's Apprentice)
I got caught up in the Lord of the Rings and i just got back to this. I finished in a couple days, but I still think the Temujai should have kept invading.
Programming in Objective-C 2.0, 2/e
Addison-Wesley Professional, 2010
Good book for beginners
Very good introduction about objective-c if you learn programming first time, but I will say for me this is to basic, because I had a little background in C++, PHP and Java.
Prentice Hall, 2008
What??? You haven't read this?
This means that: (1) You don't write Java code, in which case you're forgiven. (2) You're about to start reading it, in which case you're also forgiven. (3) The unforgiveable alternative.
Head First Java, 2nd Edition
Best Teaching Style Ever Invented
This was my first Head First book that I had bought (around Nov '09), and I have bought 5 more since (to date, May '10). After reading this Head First Java book, I was able to teach myself java within approximately a month. I won't comment on the specific techniques and methods the Head First series implements, but I will tell you what these books do for me: .. I am a VERY visual and global ...

This is my first book that I have read to learn Perl. It is very well written. Concise and easy to understand. I would recommend it to others looking to learn Perl as well.
The Practice of the Presence of God and The Spiritual Maxims
Cosimo Classics, 1944
Light reading with a heavy message.
This book is easy reading. The words are easy to understand, and the concepts behind the words that Bro. Lawrence is trying to convey are easy to understand, from a strictly cognitive point of view. But, to give these words life by putting them into action is not so easy. Like surgery, anyone can read textbooks on the subject, but putting it to effective use takes guidance, practice and time. ...
A dream come true!

Nor is it a "how to market your iPhone app ...
Sharp Objects: A Novel
Shaye Areheart Books, 2006
You *can* go home again...
Tom Wolfe asserted that "you can't go home again" and it is true that you won't be able to recapture your youth, or many friendships and relationships that only exist back in your memories, but Gillian Flynn teaches us that you can go home again, but that's not always a good thing. This is an excellent character study of a young girl who finds how easily the bad things in your youth can still ...
Head First Design Patterns
The key issue with design patterns is that software engineers have to know them in order to use them. This book addresses that issue by working hard to ensure that the patterns are absorbed by the reader in the necessary detail ... as opposed to simply documenting them. The Head First books are all good at helping one absorb material ... but there may be no other area of software engineering ...

Access 2007: The Missing Manual
Access 2007 The Missing Manual
I got Access 2007: The Missing Manual mainly because I wanted to know how to create forms using Access. I had enough familiarity with the Access and Excel to create basic databases but I remember creating forms using the older version of Access to be quite difficult, probably made more difficult by the fact that I had inherited the forms and was trying to fix them. Access 2007: The Missing ...

A great book that uses clean code examples to illustrate powerful concepts. It is good at showing critical OOP concepts as well as refactoring techniques for cleaning up code. Reading this will most likely make you a better programmer.
The Amber Room
Ballantine Books, 2003
Fast-paced novel for art history buffs
Let me just say that this has to be the best Steve Berry novel that I have read to date! Art historians everywhere would love to know what happened to the Amber Room after it disappeared during WWII. Berry paints a wonderful tale of what might have happened to it in a story that chronicles the adventures of Atlanta judge Rachel Cutler when she travels to Europe to get to the bottom of this ...
