Braving the Waves: Rockaway Rises -- And Rises Again
Rising Star Press
Kevin Boyle writes about Rockaway and its inhabitants with respect and humor. It has a nice balance of history, humor, and gripping unreal reality. I am from the area and lost a loved one. This book was tough for me but I can honestly say it is the most personal and realistic look at not just the firefighters that were lost, but the people that were lost. I recommend it. - James Suhr

Rises The Night: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles
Don't confuse lust with love... or trust
After the first book in the series, I couldn't get my hands on this one fast enough. And it didn't disappoint. It was less a romance novel than the first, darker and a little more disturbing. We get to see our heroine in a less-than-flattering light, and I think it makes her a better character. She struggles with her inner demons, and while she doesn't always do the smartest thing, or perhaps ...

The Rise of the Wyrm Lord!
The Rise of the Wyrm Lord, hmmmmm......... how do I describe it? It is one of the best books in the world!! It's exciting, exhilarating, breathtaking, thrilling and most of all, an adventurous book!!! Aiden, who was the main character in the first book in this series, is not to travel to the Realm again (which is disappointing at first, but then exciting!). At the first day of school, he ...
Fablehaven - Rise of the Evening Star

Even better than the first.
I saw the plot twist almost right away, but that didn't stop this book from being a very enjoyable read.
Manchild in the promised land

The Rise of Modern China
Immanuel C. Hsu
Oxford University Press, USA
Reviewing The Rise of Modern China
This book by Immanuel Hsu used to be my school text 23 years ago! Now in its 6th Edition, I must say is an excellent piece of work. However, there are still certain words which are wrong, for eg, page 100, 2nd Paragraph, "...He was "found" of Adma Schall von Bell, whom he appointed..." The word should be FOND and not "found".... I have detected several similar errors in the book.... ...
And Still I Rise
Maya Angelou's poetry is so phenomenal. And the power of her voice reading her own words, is really moving.
This is Burning Man: The Rise of a New American Underground
If you really want to know....
Briah Doherty nails it. He provides as comprehensive a story about Burning Man as is possible. If you have never been to the event, and you want to know what it's like, and your friends haven't told you a thousand stories, read this book. If you have been to That Event In The Desert, read this book. If your friends can't finish a story about Burning Man in any sort of cohesive way, read ...
Photo/Stoner: The Rise, Fall, and Mysterious Disappearance of Surfing's Greatest Photographer
Wave After Wave (In The Ocean of Emotion)
There are people in this world...maybe you know a few of them...maybe you are one of them...who don't really seem to fit in with things of this world. They are driven by maddness or inspiration or both and bring forth things to this world that can never be replicated. Such is the art of Ron Stoner. I call his photography art because that is exactly what it is. It captures more than a sport ...
Revivals: Their rise, progress and achievements
This will give you a biblical understanding of how salvation takes place and why it is necessary for an individual to desire salvation! This is aimed more towards an individual that is very new in the faith, on the edge about Christianity, or just doesn't know anything at all. Short work and definitely is an easy read. This is a prize and I would highly recommend this is any and all. Some ...
The Social Transformation of American Medicine The Rise of a Sovereign Profession and the Making of a Vast ...
A Physician's Must
I came across this book first as part of my academic studies and initially felt it to be purely historical with no basis for current public health implications. But, if you read the text fully and deliberate on the issues present the information presented give you an accurate view of how the current geo-political atmosphere in US healthcare has been shaped to this day. The reader can see how many ...
RISE DEFIANT (Distant Drums No. 2)
Where is D.L. Carey
I lied...I haven't read the book. However, I HAVE been in touch with Diane Carey, and she says that the publisher made the decision to abandon the trilogy due to some unrelated internal problems. She expressed that same disappointment that you all seem to; the series was very special to her. Count yourselves among the fortunate to have read the first two installments...I can't find them ...
