The Resourceful Writer: A Basic Writing Course
William H. Barnwell
My honors ESL students will love it.
I have been searching for a book that incorporates not only essay writing, but also research paper writing for a group of ESL students that have their eyes set on medical or law degrees. I have chosen it as a text for next semester (January 2001) because I have found it to be a "complete" text, which meets the needs of this special group.
Personal Finances (Resourceful Living)
One review does not a rating a make
C'mon Amazon. Let's be rational about reviews. Does one review from one individual constitute a review? I think not. Let's not blow the opportunity for others like myself that have no clue as to how to start budgeting or how to get control of finances. This book is written in a Chritian context from a Christian Author. It places the focus of stewardship/finances where they belongs. A book ...
Supper for a Song: Creative Comfort Food for the Resourceful Cook
A generous cookbook from a generous cook
Of all the notable contemporary cooks out there, Tamasin Day-Lewis is my favorite and the one with which I'd most like to share a meal. That she would be a great conversationalist is evident from her writing, which I so enjoy. But what I love equally well about her is her food choices and the obvious joy and generosity with which she approaches cooking. Although always experimenting, she is ...

Giving and Tithing (Resourceful Living)
Short and powerful
Burkett, the sage of Christian finances, writes a short book addressing the two very sensitive topics of giving and tithing. Burkett, as well as Alcorn and Ramsey, all argue that the Bible's mandate to tithe at least 10% is still in full effect. If you can't live off of 90% of your salary, you've got bigger problems than worrying about the other 10%, they say. The truth is we can never out ...
The Resourceful Physics Teacher
Resourceful Physics Teacher by Keith Gibbs
A fascinating and very useful book. The many simple experiments collected here relate physics to real experience and life and enable the teacher to gain the interest of the student and help to make difficult ideas clear. The results of the experiments are often surpising, which only adds to their fascination. I have shown this book to several people and all have been impressed by it. I recommend ...

When my first daughter was born in May of 2006, my husband and I agreed we wanted to find a discipline method that fit our style, actually worked, and was easy to understand and put in place. Enter Positive Discipline. Positive Discipline for Preschoolers was the first PD book I read.
