Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
New Riders Press, 2009
Well, I think that this book openned my mind on usability issues. Primary because as a developer, I used to think that "normal" users needed to know better to use the web but after this reading I realized that it was me that needed to acquire the ability to understand users, because I was the weird one... Great job Steve!
Sense and Sensibility

Get this free version
There are two free electronic versions of this book, both dated March 17, 2006. The other version of Sense and Sensibility was clearly a transfer from a free electronic copy -- containing a partially missing introduction, an erroneous index of illustrations (which are not contained in the book), and hard coded page numbers which just waste space on each page which don't make a lot of sense in a ...
Glenn Beck's Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine
Threshold Editions, 2009
Makes sense to me
Try this: go to You Tube and type "India Driving" in the search box. The first result should be a 2:13 video posted by someone named Higgums that shows a busy traffic intersection in India. There are cars going every which way, with no traffic controls or signs, yet everything flows smoothly. There's no accidents, no tie-ups, traffic just manages to move. It's quite an amusing video and really, ...

What the kindle was meant for
I had a copy of the Complete Illustrated Novels of Jane Austen before I bought the Kindle. It was a pain to have to drag the 1200+ page book around with me. The book itself is easy to use, and it's great to have all the novels together. This was the first book I bought on the Kindle and I'm really happy with it. Thank you, Kindle, for lightening my purse considerably!

This is a GREAT book. Memorable. It gives one a great understanding of how the founders of the US Constitution were thinking. After reading this, I realized that the US has come almost full circle, back to a monarchy, a Congress that does not respond honestly but by money and the millions of "religious monarchists" who want to make all the laws for everyone else. Read it.
A Potty for Me!: A Lift-the-Flap Instruction Manual
Fun book! Love to lift the flaps.
Great book! My little boy loves to lift the flaps and wants to use the potty after we read it. Very cute.
Pat the Bunny (Touch and Feel Book)
I'm astonished by the fact that the negative reviews all focus on the binding, and how a kid will tear or chew the book apart. Books are not chew toys. They are meant to be handled with some care. What do these parents do? Throw the book in the crib and hope their kid will grow up a great reader?
Sense and Sensibility
Public Domain Books, 2009
A Romance Junkie
I don't know which book of Jane Austen, I love more. Sense and Sensibility is just so romantic. Pride and Prejudice is awesome and Emma is just fabulous. To think that Jane Austen wrote those books so long ago just goes to show that women have felt pretty much the same about love for always.

ALTHOUGH THIS BOOK WAS A LITTLE HARD TO UNDERSTAND , BECAUSE IT WAS WRITTEN SO MANY YEARS AGO . I ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH AND I WISH WE HAD MORE PEOPLE LIKE THOMAS PAINE TODAY AND LESS LIKE OBAMA THE COWARD. DAVID HOOD
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Bill Martin Jr.
Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Never Too Young to Learn to Read
Dr.Martin has demonstrated the beauty of repetition in developing vocabulary in young children. The colors will excite the toddler and instill a love of reading. His companion book, "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?" follows the identical technique. However, as a childhood educator, Dr. Martin should know that snakes do not have ears and cannot hear. But Eric Carle's hissing boa ...

Penguin Classics Hardcover
One of the most beautiful books I own
Sense & Sensibility has been reviewed ad infinitum, but I wanted to say that this is one of the most beautiful books I own. I was looking for a series of classics that I could purchase in hardcover to spruce up my personal library. I stumbled upon these special editions from Penguin Classics, with covers designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. I love books, but these books still make me giddy ...
Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy
Basic Books, 2007
Old-Fashioned Economic Discussion
It's easy to draw inspiration from the book, Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell. The most striking thing about this book is that it is written in plain English - no small thing for an economics text. Sowell does it the old-fashioned way, using analogies and word pictures to explain complex concepts in simple fashion. No pie graphs or multicolor charts, no heavy reliance on statistics or data ...

Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes, Revised 25th Anniversary Edition
A book to share with others
I have read this book several times and I am amazed how neither the text or the power of Bridge's insights lose their meaning. In fact, I have purchased multiple copies of the book and keep them handy to give to friends who are going through difficult times in their lives. I find comfort in the deeper meaning of the work. How transitions sometimes occur with or without our knowledge or ...

Mr.Brown Is Fun!
What a fun guy! My children would like to meet Mr. Brown! We've been repeating the lines of this book for years and years! During any thunderstorm someone will say,"Boom! Boom! Boom!

The illustrations are captivating and the words run together like a charm! ...

Common Sense, The Rights of Man and Other Essential Writings of Thomas Paine (Signet Classics)
Thomas Paine's arguments defending human rights and political revolution, as well as his opposition to hereditary and abusive government, are an absolute classic. Some may find Paine to lack a certain level of depth in his analysis, but the strength, clarity, and historical significance of his arguments are very rarely matched. This is an absolute must read for anyone interested in history or ...

The main character is an All-American dreamer who believes his innovation and charm should and will be rewarded. As the plot twists and turns, he ...
