Standing With Israel
Antidote to Jeremiah Wright
For those interested in knowing the origins of Christian antisemitism, as well as the modern-day cure to this age-old disease, this book is an excellent tutor. As other reviewers have stated here, the discussion herein is quite calm and collected. It is filled with fact and history, and contains no hyperbole or exaggeration whatsoever. It's too bad that the supposed saint Obama evidently never ...

Standing as Awareness
This is one of a handful of modern non-dual books that I do and will recommend to friends or anyone interested in non-duality. Here are a few striking things about this book. There is no dogma in it. There is no absolutism of ideas or fundamentalism here. It never feels as if its being written from the position of someone with authority or from a center of knowledge. It never makes ...
Standing in the Rainbow (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
Standing In The Rainbow
Another Fannie Flagg winner. The characters in this midwest town are like the neighbors you always wish you had. The people are unforgettable and leave you wanting more.

Last Man Standing

Another Good Book
This man can write. I like his Government related books more than his other writings, but I just don't think the man could write a bad book.
Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life
Personal, Well Written, and Entertaining
I've always liked Steve's work including his books. This is by far his best book to date. One reviewer wrote that it was sad, lonely, and full of the dues of fame. Well that is part of Steve's life but it was not what I got out of the book. I liked every personal story, every name he brought up was a charming reminder that he regards 'the little people' as actual persons. The whole story is ...
Last Man Standing: The Ascent of Jamie Dimon and JPMorgan Chase
Simon & Schuster
A Privilege - A Pleasure - An Honor - Magnificent!!!
I just finished Duff McDonald's "Last Man Standing - The Ascent of Jamie Dimon and JP Morgan Chase." This book should be required reading for every person in the financial services industry, anyone studying business in college, as well as entrepreneurs, M&A types, accountants, and investors. It's just a fantastic, incredible story - woven together by a master literary artist. This is a ...

Standing Tall: A Memoir of Tragedy and Triumph
C. Vivian Stringer
Three Rivers Press
This book came to me through teacher suggestion when I was looking for a nonfiction book, about coaches, to read. I had actually never heard of it, though I had often heard of Vivian Stringer as I am from Iowa. This book definitely did not disappoint. She is able to fully get across her purpose of inspiring through telling her life story. In my opinion this is a great memoir, because it not only ...

Spirituality in Nursing, Third Edition: Standing on Holy Ground (O'Brien, Spirituality Iin Nursing)

Jones and Bartlett Publishers, Inc.
Sister Mary Elizabeth O'Brien does an excellent job of demonstrating Spirituality in Nursing. I was so impressed, I began using her book as the basis for my Master's Thesis.
Standing in the Fire: Leading High-Heat Meetings with Clarity, Calm, and Courage
Deserves a broad audience
The rich examples Larry uses to illustrate his ideas are clearly based on thoughtful experience in organizational leadership. But I couldn't help thinking about other areas of life experiences where a fire-tending approach could be applied with positive effect. The techniques described in this book provide tools equally well suited for being present and open in the heat of our social and family ...
I'm Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen--My Journey Home
Gripping, poignant story of an exceedingly brave female soldier
It took me a little while to decide to get this book. Am I glad I did. This book is so informative regarding this woman's terrifying experiences as a POW. She happens to be the niece of my friend's boyfriend. I have never met her but would love the opportunity. I greatly respect and admire her strength and wise ways in which she conducted herself under such unbearable duress. Had she boldly ...
The Courageous Follower: Standing Up to and for Our Leaders
Invaluable wisdom - wish I'd read this 20 years ago
How often do we hear about organizational failures large and small that could have been averted if only...if only organization leaders knew what was known by people below them in the hierarchy...if only organization members who tried to warn leadership had been heard...if only people had the courage to speak? This third edition of The Courageous Follower - Standing Up to & for Our Leaders ...
Last Dragon Standing
G. A. Aiken
I know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail's length. A technique that's worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who've come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm ...
Standing Next to History: An Agent's Life Inside the Secret Service
St. Martin's Griffin
After reading some light fiction (and enjoying it), I thought "O.K. it's time for a little history now" and picked up this book. Written by a guy who was there, a part of history, I found to my surprise that I could NOT put this book down. Plenty of humor as well as history here. I learned a lot & also laughed a lot! I have something in common with Joe Petro -- I can always get along with a ...
Standing By: The Making of an American Military Family in a Time of War
Standing Ovation for Standing By...
Just finished reading A. Buckholtz's book, STANDING BY: The Making of an American Military Family in a Time of War...and highly recommend it. I don't come from a military background, and have always been curious about what it's really like on the inside. As a proud American citizen, I have tremendous interest in better understanding the sacrifices of military families who uphold that freedom ...
Standing Strong: How to Resist the Enemy of Your Soul (John Macarthur Study)
David C. Cook
Stand Firm while Addressing Spiritual Warfare - Biblically
This is a powerfully written book by Pastor John MacArthur that brings clarity to the subject of the 'spiritual warfare movement'. He has done the homework for people to understand a movement that is laden with errors, distorting the scriptures, and is heaped in sensationalism. These teachings are captivating a "bored with scripture" audience, and which is currently being militantly advanced ...
