Tears in the Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and Its Aftermath
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009
an important story, well told, not often heard....
A really good, moving, touching story that is not often heard. While many people have heard of the Bataan death march, I doubt too many people really know what went on. I have read dozens of books about WWII, but this is the first to focus soley on the war in the pacific. If you like history, and human interest, this is great.
Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams (Second Edition)
Dorset House Publishing Company, Incorporated
Classic and still fantastic
This book is one of the books I still recommend to people who are managing software development 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 ...
THE MAKING OF "STAR WARS": THE DEFINITIVE STORY BEHIND THE ORIGINAL FILM
A "must have" for Star Wars fans
"Making Of" was written a few years ago by J.W. Rinzler. He was able to comb the Lucasfilm archives and unearth dozens of interviews that were conducted contemporaneously with the making of the original film. This, along with tons of production artwork, photographs, and behind the scenes materials are what comprise the book. It was both a difficult read, and an easy read. After reading the ...
Jorge Luis Borges
It is perfect! Jorge Luis Borges is one of the greatest of his kind. This book really proves it!

Book is great. My kids hang on every word. Amazon- not so great. I ordered a hard cover and got a paperback. I let Amazon know and they replaced it with another paperback. Again, I let Amazon know and they suggested that I give it up and send it back for a refund or a small discount if I wanted to keep it. I figured Amazon needed the money more than me and decided not to get my discount. My kids ...

The Code Book: The Secret History of Codes and Code-breaking
Fourth Estate Ltd
what the others said
This book is one of the most highly-rated non-fiction books on Amazon, and for good reason. I won't reiterate the other reviews except to say that the clarity of presentation of complex material is extraordinary. The one caveat is that the book is now ten years old, so you'll need to look for something beyond this to bring you up to the present.
James Cameron's Titanic (Spanish Edition)

Juicy and in depth director's interview makes it worth while
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2AYPZIOM2URTC Serenity Official Visual Companion is like the director's commentary that goes on DVD. In this book, it's an in-depth interview with director Joss Whedon on the world of Serenity. Joss Whedon talks about everything inside and outside of the movie. He talks about his inspiration, writing style, favourite scenes, Firefly (of course!) ...
QED: The strange theory of light and matter (Alix G. Mautner memorial lectures)
Richard Phillips Feynman
Princeton University Press
It takes a genius to make it simple
Feynman picks the thing that is simplest in the quantum world, a single particle, and explains it using no math. Instead of equations, the quantum theory in this book consists entirely of pictures. But this is not a popularization in the usual sense. This is not gossip about science. This actually is quantum theory in a very simple case. For anyone who wants to know how the universe is put ...
Common Sense, The Rights of Man and Other Essential Writings of Thomas Paine
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 ...
Don't Bring It to Work: Breaking the Family Patterns That Limit Success
From personal to collective patterns
The brilliance of the book "Don't Bring it to Work," is its capacity to simultaneously touch on so many different aspects of the human experience from business, to home, to the depths of the collective cultural milieu. As a peace activist and filmmaker, I have taken an interest in looking at cultures in conflict and in particular the patterns of the victim-persecutor cycle that seem to go on for ...
Chocolates and Confections: Formula, Theory, and Technique for the Artisan Confectioner

The Culinary Institute of America
Chocolates & Confections
I have made the divinity in this book three times (first time, I was sent "hard candy mix" instead of "Fondant". I made the divinity twice with fondant (powedered) and it tastes delicious but will not really set up and is sticky. Does anyone have a suggestion?? Thank you.
From Day One: CEO Advice to Launch an Extraordinary Career
William J. White
Practical and Insightful
I am a former student and great admirer of Prof. White (full disclosure). He does a great job of providing practical tips for getting better in your career. The fundamental insight being that it's not about you, its about the company first and then about you (depending on what you do for the company). Simple and effective ideas, such as finding a mentor in HR (they know way more than most ...
Divorce: Causes and Consequences (Current Perspectives in Psychology)
Professor Cornelia Brentano
Yale University Press
Invaluable Insight for those Thinking of Marriage or Divorce
Clarke-Stewart and Brentano deliver powerful insights and advice for anyone considering marriage or divorce. They provide statistical evidence for the various causes and consequences that are associated with marriage and divorce in a manner untypical of most textbooks. This book reads more like a novel, as much of a page-turner as one would expect from any novel. However, the lessons learned ...
Eating in the Light of the Moon: How Women Can Transform Their Relationship with Food Through Myths, ...
Anita A. Johnston PhD.
New insights into the issue
It is my opinion that when all is said and done, there will be found to be lots of reasons why people struggle with weight issues. I think, for example, that the massive amounts of chemicals in our foods and in our general environment contribute greatly to the problem of obesity. But there are certainly other issues to the problem and this book addresses the emotional issues in an artful way. ...
