Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Heal your life with the principles shared in this book.
The wisdom Kevin shares in this book changed my life, literally. I heard Kevin speak on a conference call in the Summer of '09, and was so deeply touched and inspired by his story of how he came to know of the secret word "Genshai", which is the first word he describes in his book "Aspire". Genshai means to never treat anyone in a manner in which they feel small.....not anyone....not yourself. ...
Japan at War: An Oral History
Haruko Taya Cook
Theodore F. Cook
Japan At War: An Oral History, by Haruko Taya Cook & Peter Cook
I rarely go all in for history books of this type. As an academic it is not in my nature to suspend or withhold criticism. Oral histories typically suffer from a certain blindness to strategic considerations, and end up being little more than advocacy for personal preferences held by the author, disconnected from the reality of the people, places and times of historical events under examination. ...
Books Kids Will Sit Still For 3: A Read-aloud Guide
Not just for librarians - should be sitting next to Trelease and just as worn
I stumbled across this wonderful book while working my way through our library's books about books in search of more wonderful picture books to share with my toddler (who is nearly 19 months). It was mis-shelved in the local branch (took 4 tries for the librarian to find it) and since no one had noticed in the 6 months or so since the book came in, my friendly librarian slapped a due date sticker ...
The Black Devil Brigade: The True Story of the First Special Service Force
Joseph A. Springer
Mr. Springer may have been initially motivated by the desire to honor his uncle (killed serving with the First Special Service Force) but his work honors all who served in that unit. One seldom sees an oral history which tells the story of a unit so well. All the contributions by unit members tell the story without the distractions often found in other compilations. Always engaging, you just ...

Telushkin, Joseph. "Words That Hurt, Words That Heal: How to Choose Words Wisely and Well", Harper, 1996. Speak No Evil Amos Lassen Most of us are aware how hurtful people can be just by saying something. We have been taught that words do not hurt but we know that is not true.

Hell Is Over: Voices of the Kurds after Saddam, An Oral History
The Lyons Press
Like AMONG WARRIORS IN IRAQ, HELL IS OVER is a jewel of a book: 5 stars.
Like AMONG WARRIORS IN IRAQ, HELL IS OVER is a jewel of a book. Definitely 5 stars. Mike Tucker lets the Kurds of Iraq tell their stories. His insight into the intelligence campaign in Iraq, and how the Kurds can help us defeat insurgents and terrorists in Iraq, is more timely than ever. I very much enjoyed all of this great book, especially the last section, "The Road Ahead," where ...
The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word
How the Bible Can Speak to your Heart's Concerns
Preachers and Bible scholars state that all of mankinds' problems have an answer within the pages of the Bible. Unfortunately, it is a book composed of 66 individual books, and rarely does one know right where to look for advice on a certain problem or topic. Joyce Meyer's book, "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" addresses the specifics of where to find answers to topical concerns. ...

Me and My Big Mouth!: Your Answer is Right Under Your Nose - Study Guide
Joyce Meyer hits the target again!
Joyce has been an inspiration to me for many years. I have almost all of her books and tapes... I relisten to the tapes (ok I'm lazy and it is easier than reading and spend lots of time in the car). This book however hit me personally - probably because I have a big mouth that needs to be SHUT! Wonderful job. May God continue to bless her.

Growing Up Baseball: An Oral History
Cooper Square Press
REVIEW FROM BASEBALLOLOGY.COM, BY AMY COHEN
The title and premise intrigued me. A series of mini-bios told in the first person by men who had actually made it to the "Big Leagues." I was looking for an answer, into my own psyche perhaps as to why the game is so compelling. Why do I stay up late for Opening Day and to watch every possible minute of the World Series? Why is Opening Day for my home team so important that I consider it a ...
Things We Couldn't Say
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1994
An account of valour
The true story of true Christians, and Dutch patriots, Diet Eman and Hein Sietsma, and their courageous risk of everything to resist Nazi tyranny and hide thousands of Dutch Jews. True Christians always love the Jewish people and Israel, and true nationalists are opposed to both Communism and Nazism, both the antithesis of national self-determination. Diet recounts her own life, and experiences ...
Voices of a People's History of the United States: Second Edition
Seven Stories Press
Zinn is always a winner
I have included all of Howard Zinn's work in my library, and I am proud to add this one to his impressive body of work. For history teachers who want to include first-hand expressions of what life has been like for the working American in the 20th century, this is a treasure.
War of Words: Getting to the Heart of Your Communication Struggles (Resources for Changing Lives)
Paul David Tripp
P & R Publishing
Launchpad to change your communication
Few books have impacted me as much as this book. I was in the midst of some conflict in a very valued relationship and I could not understand what the heart of the issue was. This book not only helped me get to the root of the problem and see my own shortcomings, but it helped me come to terms with those issues and take practical steps to change them. Tripp does not just talk about the issues, ...
Bullwhip Days: The Slaves Remember
A Definitive Book
"Bullwhip Days - The Slaves Remember, An Oral History" is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of slavery in America. It is edited by James Mellon. But with respect to Mr. Mellon, it is not his story. During the Great Depression, the US government created work programs for a besieged economy. One of these was the Writer's Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). ...

Going Long: The Wild Ten-Year Saga of the Renegade American Football League in the Words of Those Who Lived It
Really terrific look at the 10 crazy years of the AFL. It is written very similar to the ABA's Loose Balls, with the author telling about a particular event and then having interview snippets from those around that event. It makes for a fun time while also relating the actual events. I also like the appendix in the back that gives a season by season team and playoff results. I have read "The ...
Backwards & Forwards: A Technical Manual for Reading Plays
Professor Emeritus David Ball Ph.D.
Southern Illinois University Press
Excellent and easy to read.
I've been acting for ten years and got my first directing assignment. I know a lot about directing from having been directed, but this book was a great guide for script analysis with the big picture in mind, not just one character. The show was a success and the actors still like me.
Michael Bloomfield - If You Love These Blues: An Oral History
24 reviews, ...
Miller Freeman Books, 2000
Essential for any Bloomfield fan
This is, and will probably remain, THE book on Mike Bloomfield. The only other book worth having is Ed Ward's "Rise And Fall Of An American Guitar Hero", which is out of print and very expensive in the secondary market; Ward's book also has some inaccuracies. For many people, Mike Bloomfield is someone they know from the famed "Super Session" album from the late 1960s. Others may know him from ...
This is a huge collection of some really fun stories. Most stories are a few pages long and this book is filled with many great stories. I recommend this to anyone that loves folktales and fairy tales.
