Gold in the Water: The True Story of Ordinary Men and Their Extraordinary Dream of Olympic Glory
P. H. Mullen Jr.
St. Martin's Griffin
Narrative of the Pursuit of Excellence
This book shows the price that must be paid to be the best. The facet that stands out the most to me is the turmoil these men put themselves through in the process of preparation for the Olympics. Everyone already knows it takes a great deal of physical effort to be an Olympian, but PH Mullen shows how heavy the emotional burden must be as well. The characters are almost too distinctively ...
This was my FAVORITE book as a child and I'm thoroughly pleased that I was able to find a new first edition. Shipping was very fast and the book arrived exactly as described. Thank you!
Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
Spiegel & Grau
I had no idea
I had never given North Korea any thought at all, other than it being some strange little country under the sway of a madman. But I picked up this book because I'm always interested in people's stories of their ordinary lives. Reading this book was a real eye-opener. It reads like a novel, and yet the truth of the situation made my hair stand on end. Since reading this book I have read 4 other ...

The Life You've Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People
Zondervan Publishing Company
Excellent for your Spiritual Growth
I just finished The Life You've Always Wanted in about three days. Ortberg is practical, challenging, and honest. I love his insights on some of the less talked about Christian disciplines - like slowing down, regular confession, and servanthood. Here is a non-dry, non-wordy, powerful book that any Christian should read. Takes the "pressure" out of spiritual disciplines and inspires me to ...
Ordinary Differential Equations
My own little opinion on this great book
I took ODE this semester, and I was liking the subject until I got to read the textbooks assigned to it. It is impressive how the world is filled with giant text books that are absolutely dull and useless and extremely expensive. Luckly I have always been fond of Amazon, so I searched "Ordinary Differential Equations" and came upon this book, which at first glance looks tiny and unpromising, but ...

Ordinary Resurrection (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
Touching Portraits of Resilience
In Ordinary Resurrections, Jonathan Kozol deviates from his usual "gloves off" attack of the issues facing minority children. Instead of building the case against the inequitable system with facts and figures, as he has in previous work, he has chosen the subtle but effective approach of a storyteller. He paints a very descriptive portrait of the victims of continued segregation and racism that ...
Growing Grateful Kids: Teaching Them to Appreciate an Extraordinary God in Ordinary Places

Growing Grateful Kids
While strolling through the Christian bookstore, the cover of this book caught my eye! After I brought this book home, I just couldn't put it down. What a wonderful book. This should be read by every parent more than once. What a beautiful reminder of what we Christians should be doing all the time. "Growing Grateful Kids" is like sitting down with Susie Larson talking over a cup of coffee, ...

I cried my tears as I read your story. I am still in awe over the ability of the human spirit in adversity. Lo and her family have touched thousands of hearts thru their lives and thru their book, no doubt inspiring countless others to stretch themselves to do something they fear is impossible, or to forge ahead when life seems like "too much to handle". Now, when I catch myself complaining ...
Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor: The Life and Reflections of Tom Carson
Good News Publishers/Crossway Books, 2008
Thank you D. A. Carson!
As a middle-aged Reformed Baptist pastor in New Hampshire for about 20 years now, I thoroughly enjoyed this deeply-challenging cameo of Tom Carson. The last two chapters especially moved me to tears. We spend our lives as a tale that is told. Though my story will no doubt be different, it felt like a preview of things to come. Unheard of pastors in many places are the countless foot-soldiers of ...
The Breakaway Cook: Recipes That Break Away from the Ordinary
William Morrow Cookbooks
Simple, healthy and tasty recipes from this fabulous cookbook! I love the idea of using flavored salts in cooking (macca/matcha is now my favorite) and using ingredients that seemingly would not go well together. I've had fantastic results with many of the recipes here--my "go to" breakfast are the fluffy eggs with greek yogurt. I'll never use milk again!

I would recommend this book to any woman of all ages! Susie does a wonderful job of reflecting the Lord's beautiful love for us and reminds us of who he created us to be as women of his. She relates so well with each of her readers and she uses her own life examples to show how God's word gives direction and power to the common struggles women face everyday.
