Midnights with the Mystic: A Little Guide to Freedom and Bliss
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
Hampton Roads Pub Co
Feeling lost? This is a familiar soft glow that will guide you ..
I resound with Cheryl, as if she were an alternate parallel spirit to mine. It feels like I have been searching my entire life to the answers that seem just out of reach. This reminds me of 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. This book breathes new life into that perennial classic. An analogy is 'Autobiography' was like a mouth-watering fancy cupcake that was sitting on a table out of my reach, 'Mystics' ...

Photoshop Elements 5
I have Adobe Elements 5 on my computer but try as I might, I have barely been able to do the simplest things using the tutorial. After reading all the reviews I could find on books for the program, I settled on this book by Scott Kelby.

Great book! Full of colour pictures with precise instruction.Information is easy to find thanks to the colour coding. Growing advice is relevant and informative. Thoroughly recommend this "bible"
So inspiring, so helpful
I really love this book. I'm not even 1/2 way through and yet I think it is one of the best books I've ever read on Psychic ability. It is really written as a biography and that is what is so helpful. You can see how Judith discovered all sorts of techniques and came to have the beliefs that she did/does. I am reading her book Positive Energy at the same time but stopped because I found that ...

Miracle in the Andes: 72 Days on the Mountain and My Long Trek Home
Three Rivers Press
Through the lenses of maturity
I have always been haunted by this story, mainly because my father, a longtime aviator, told me what happened right at the time the world was shocked by the news they were alive. And now, more than 35 years after, Nando Parrado has the fantastic idea of writing his own book, whose biggest merit is exactly the naturally acquired maturity of the author. He escapes from the easy calling of ...
Adobe Photoshop Restoration & Retouching (3rd Edition)
New Riders Press
Best Book Out There On Retouching
If you don't like Scott Kelby's Court Jester writing style, get this book. It's written professionally in easy to read phrases. I own both Kelby's and Eastman's book on this topic, and both cover similar things, but sometimes Kelby's results are more to my liking and sometimes Eastman's are. They cover different things too. Excellent book.
Peopleware : Productive Projects and Teams

The ideas in this book are about many of the topics that "agile" teams speak about now, and there are some key ideas that make sense for any team of professionals who have to work together. I still use memorable phrases from this book such as "brain time vs. body time", and "bring back the ...

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Because of American Idol (and Siobhan Magnus)
While I was down in my man cave I happened to come across a show called "American Idol". I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with this show, but apparently it consists of four middle aged adults picking on young kids who can carry a tune in the middle of a Ford and/or Coca-Cola commercial. In any event, I was engaged in a lead pressing event - squats - so I couldn't change the channel to ...

The guide to creating 2000 Percent solutions essentially helps you to see differently, and acknowledge the reality of your personal and ...

Best $12 I ever spent!!!
I bought this book on cheap clearance after the original publisher went out of business -- the best $12 I ever invested. Remembering even 10% of this book makes you better than 90% of Oracle developers, modelers and architects. Mr. Kyte's real world experience and reliance on solid examples instead of folklore makes this light-years ahead of any other Oracle book; it's the only Oracle book I ...

I would eat the pictures if I could!
When I have a serious piece of meat or an ingredient I want to show off and still manage to cook it so I can eat dinner, I reach for Les Halles cookbook by none other than Anthony Bourdain. I don't eat meat too often, I know he does and writes about it a lot, but when I do I like to treat it with respect and use it to its full potential, when I finally do indulge in it, I can think of a few other ...
