Smoke & Spice: Cooking with Smoke, the Real Way to Barbecue
Cheryl Alters Jamison
Harvard Common Press
Great book for beginners...like us at Smoking. Lot's of recipes to choose from.
K A Mitchell
I am so glad that I gave this book a chance. I hated another book by this author (Diving deep) and would not even think to come back to read another one if my friend would not have convinced me to do so. Wow, what a difference. Instead of the characters having no depth, we have the characters who are as three dimensional and realistic as they come. Instead of book having minimal, or under my ...
You won't be able to put it down...
This is the first Nora Robert's book that I have read; it was passed on to me from a friend. I have to say that I was impressed and really enjoyed the book. I liked it so much that I had to pass it along to my sister. She loved it too. A great romance laced with suspense. Even though I knew who the culprit was before Roberts revealed it she still keeps you guessing as to what is going to ...
Blood, Smoke and Mirrors
A pleasant surprise that you will not be able to put down!!
I normally don't write reviews but this book was a fantastic fine! It was funny in all the right places with a healthy dose of whit and sarcasm to boot. I have to admit at first it was a little hard for me to get into, but after the second chapter it was hard for me to put down. Matter of fact I read the book in one day. True, I had to cut out a lot of things to accomplish this, i.e. eating ...
Human Smoke: The Beginnings of World War II, the End of Civilization
Simon & Schuster
A powerful and disturbing book
I'm a boomer and the son of a European immigrant, a woman who spent part of her teen years in a Nazi slave labor camp and who then became a displaced person after WWII. So, WWII history has always been more personal to me than for many of my peers. I majored in history in college and was jolted awake when I was introduced to the discipline of historiography, the study of history itself. You've ...
Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: Climate Change and Energy in the 21st Century
Cambridge University Press
Finally a reasonable voice in the climate debate
After hearing and reading a great deal in the popular press about climate change caused by human activities, I became convinced that most of what one hears on this subject is highly biased and unreliable. The problem is that almost everyone who speaks out on this controversial subject has either an economic interest, a political interest, or a professional career interest to advance by ...
Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions (P.S.)
The Magic of Gaiman
Great book: a diverse group of stories and poems written with emotional depth and sense of wonderment only Gaiman can conjure. I'm not going to offer mini-reviews of each story or spoilers... that's just not me, but to make it easier (if you trust my judgement), the stand-out stories are (by the way: all stories are good but these are my favorites): "The Wedding Present" (read the introduction), ...
A Trace of Smoke (Hannah Vogel)
Historical Depth in Gray
This story manages to fit neatly into four genre categories and does it amazingly well! While reading, my imagination portrayed the story in black and white form with dashes of color, mostly red, which is significant to the gay character. This is not due to a lack of development, but rather should be taken as a compliment to the author's talent to imprint emotions into the scene without ...
Tree of Smoke: A Novel
Tree of Smoke
A deep and sad book about the American hallucinogenic involvement in Asia, specifically the Philippines and Vietnam. It's a novel but like all great novels is more real that any factual account can be. Other reviewers cover the plot and the characters; suffice it to to say the characters are helpless against the inevitability of tragedy. I served in Korea ( before the time of the novel which ...
Smoke Your Firefighter Interview
Paul S. Lepore
Awesome information and very helpful
This book was exactly what I was looking for and needed. It gave me the insight I needed to answer the questions in my interviews. I recommend to all persons interested in going through the Fire Fighter application process to read this book and get an understanding of what they are looking for from the candidates.
Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: Mexican Immigration in an Era of Economic Integration
Douglas S. Massey
Russell Sage Foundation Publications
Excellent overview by one of our foremost immigration scholars
Most popular discussions of contemporary U.S. immigration ignore history and the "facts on the ground." Massey lays out the history of Mexico-U.S. migration. He provides convincing evidence that stepped-up border enforcement efforts since the early 1990s have been both deadly and counterproductive. He argues forcefully for an immigration policy that takes the realities of U.S.-Mexican social and ...
The Ruby in the Smoke: A Sally Lockhart Mystery
Knopf Books for Young Readers

The Sally Lockhart Mysteries - novel one - The Ruby in the Smoke. I rented the first three books (Ruby in the Smoke, Shadow in the North, The Tiger in the Well and The Tin Princess) on audio from the library and purchased from amazon "The Tin Princess" brilliant series! Someone I know loves audio books and we have been talking about what books we have listened to on cd for a while. I only in ...
The Man Who Went Up in Smoke (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)
I was first introduced to the work of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo back in the 1980s when I was assigned to read "The Laughing Policeman" as part of a detective fiction college course. Since then, I have looked for their books but with no success. Just recently, I saw that the first two books in their ten book series were republished by Vintage Crime, so I have started reading the series from the ...
Up In Smoke: From Legislation To Litigation In Tobacco Politics, 2nd Edition
Fascinating Image of American Politics
Derthick's story of the tobacco wars is the real deal of American politics, not the civics you learned in high school. Unlike some writers, Derthick doesn't moralize about tobacco. Some looking for fevered preaching may be put off by her detachment and even skepticism about the anti-tobacco movement. Careful readers, however, will find all the creepy details about tobacco companies they have come ...

She grows up in thier secret city taunted and abused by the other children, and dismissed as only a halfling by the adults. At 17 Clarissa disappears. She is thought to have drowned in a nearby pond.

Holy Smoke: The Big Book of North Carolina Barbecue
John Shelton Reed
Dale Volberg Reed
The University of North Carolina Press
This book is an excellent overview of North Carolina barbecue. What sets this book apart from others on the subject is the amount of detailed research. The authors not only did their homework, they interviewed many of the major figures in North Carolina barbecue first hand. The unique structure makes the book very readable. First they give a detailed history of barbecue in North Carolina ...
Smoke Screen: A Novel
I received this book very quickly and in perfect shape. It ia a large print book and I gave it as a gift to my mother who has visual problems. I actually read it before I gave it to her as it makes more sense to have us both read the books, especially since we both enjoy the same kind of books. I appreciate that I can get a large print book at such a good deal and in perfect condition. Thank you.
