Institute for Economic Democracy
Review of Economic Democracy: The Political Struggle of the
A professor of economics once told me that "mainstream economics is 95% ideology and only 5% social science." This wonderful book by J.W. Smith shows why that is true. I found it utterly complelling and could not put it down. By exposing the macro-economic mechanisms of the past five centuries, Smith blows neo-liberal ideology right out of the water. This book should be required reading ...
The SECRET FAMILY: TWENTY-FOUR HOURS INSIDE THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD OF OUR MINDS AND BODIES
Simon & Schuster
Funny, entertaining, informative - a great read - buy it
The Secret Family by David Bodanis is a popular science book with a difference - it is funny and entertaining, as well as being informative. He has a talent for exposing hidden worlds in the most mundane of everyday activities: the food we eat, our shopping routines, family relationships and the way our bodies work. Plus he has the most amazing colour photographs of soap bubbles, scouring pads, ...
Two Teenagers in Twenty: Writings by Gay and Lesbian Youth
You are not alone
A friend of mine was going through a tough time in college because he was starting to "come out" for the first time. He was terrified that nobody would accept him anymore. I ordered this book for him and he really enjoyed reading it (I read it as well). It helps to read about people who are going through the same thing you are. The stories are all real; some are happy & some are not, but ...
Twenty-Odd Ducks: Why, every punctuation mark counts!
Awesome for all ages when trying to show how important punctuation and inflection are to meaning. I've used it with young elementary students and college students, too....ageless message!
The Wonder Clock: Or, Four & Twenty Marvelous Tales, Being One for Each Hour of the Day
A four generation read aloud treat
My father heard these stories as a child. He read them to me. I read them to my kids and my grandkids. The vocabulary, the cadences, the varied plots and the sheer magic of these tales is timeless. The poems at the beginning of each chapter are related to the hours. Kids insist that you read them too. Pyle always sees to it that bullies, evil magicians, cheaters and older nasty siblings ...
African American Family Press
A Must Have Children's Book for Every Family
I remember the first time I saw this book. I loved it then. I love it now. I discovered this book as I was working in a Christian outreach for inner city children in Kansas City. In the context of the ministry I was working in, this book made sense and rang true to some of the kids' lives. I have used in since several times in all sorts of different cultural settings. The book is always ...
Art:21: Art in the Twenty-First Century 4
Art at its finest
This is an excellent book and an excellent series for anyone who wants to know more about art being creating today. My Art History professor uses this book at the text book for her Contemporary Art class. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in seeing art history in the making.
Twenty Jataka Tales
Noor Inayat Khan
Much nicer than Aesop
Gentle tales of/from Buddha. Mostly tales of animal kindness and you have no idea it is Buddha. Anyone could read them to children with no problems - OK, as long as their parents allow them to hear stories about talking, caring, feeling animals. The morals are more for you to determine; you are not hit over the head with them.
As Easy As Pie: From Basic Apple to Four and Twenty Blackbirds It's
Susan G. Purdy
Excellent Book on Pastry and Classic Pies and Technique
`As Easy As Pie' by old school pastry expert Susan G. Purdy is my `go to' book for pie recipes, even after reviewing at least a half dozen very good pastry and dessert books by the likes of Wayne Harley Brachman, Nick Malgieri, Rose Levy Beranbaum, Judith Fertig, Flo Braker, Gayle Ortiz, and the very French Christine Ferber. In fact, I recently went to Wayne Harley Brachman's `American Desserts' ...
The Twenty-four Hour Mind: The Role of Sleep and Dreaming in Our Emotional Lives
Oxford University Press, USA, 2010
The Twenty-Four Hour Mind
There is probably noone better suited to write a book like this than its author. Rosalind D. Cartwright has spent a lifetime conducting sleep and dream research, helping patients overcome their sleep disorders, and, through her courtroom testimony and writings, educating the public about arcane sleep disorders and their occasionally bizarre and criminal presentations. "The Twenty-Four Hour ...
How to Live on 24 Hours a Day
Shambling Gate Press
When it comes to self-help books, quality dilutes with time
With the advent of the Industrial Revolution first in England and then quickly following in America, more and more of the workforce transitioned into what we call white-collar jobs, where the workplace was outside and often far from the home. Because these new jobs more reflected our modern 21st-century jobs, in which the work was tedious, repetitive and the ambiguous results not always readily ...

J. K. Rowling (Biography (a & E))
Twenty-First Century Books (CT), 2007
Good Biographical Book On Harry Potter's Author
If you're wondering how J.K. Rowling came up with the idea for the Harry Potter books, and how she *envisioned* the characters, this is the book to read! It's written in very understandable, plain, and simple language that your kids will love to read too! If they're "Potter-Aficionados" ~ they should have this book! (It may even inspire them to 'aspire' to write their own stories someday)!
Roaring Brook Press
This book was on a list of the 10 Most Beautiful Children's Books for 2008 and it certainly deserved that. It's a storybook for older children about an emperor who commissions a painting of his favorite horse and has to wait many years while the artist creates the painting over and over to reduce it to the simplest and most evocative representation. It's a delightful story and subtly teaches ...
The Avadhut And His Twenty-Four Teachers In Nature
Babaji Bob Kindler
Brilliant! A must-read book!
Ekanta (the protagonist in this fine book) was born into a time when the old ways of life were being displaced by the advancement of the technical age. This threatened to destroy the timeless tenets which had fostered and maintained harmony for so many centuries. Ekanta was born to be a free soul who is beyond dualities though still abiding in human form as an example for others. Ekanta is an ...
Doreen's 24 Hr Eat Gas Now Cafe
Reavis, Z. Wortham
Texas Fish & Game Publishing Co., LLC
Set aside a couple of hours and read this book non-stop. You won't have a choice because you cannot put it down until you have finished. One story just makes you hungry for another. Caution: do not attempt to read one of the stories to another person, because you will be unable to speak, having fallen into uncontrollable spasms of laughter. I tried to read one to my wife and we both fell on ...

Mark D. Pendergrass
A Perfect Twenty-One
Dear Readers, I went to a local store book signing in my home town. I was searching for the "perfect" book to give as a very special gift for a dear friend's daughter who has just had her 1st birthday. As I was shown the book and told the story, I knew my search was over. I was delighted to have a signed copy. I left to pay but stopped and went back for another. My thought is to save ...
You're the Detective!: Twenty-Four Solve-Them-Yourself Picture Mysteries
David R Godine
My kids love this book!
My 7 and 8 year old kids had a blast going through these short "mysteries" to solve a crime! The mysteries were a bit challenging, but at the same time not so hard as to frustrate the kids. As for me, I liked that the reader has to study the picture for each scenario and answer questions at the end for hints to the solution. Just a note though: When my 8 year old daughter first picked up ...
The Rabbi and the Twenty-nine Witches
Marshall Cavendish Corp/Ccb
Every full moon a town is plagued by twenty-nine witches. However, when it rains the witches never appear. The older people in the town want to see a full moon before they die and they approach a rabbi to seek help. This is a wonderful story. It reminded me of many of the old "So-and-so" versus the Devil stories (e.g. The Devil and Daniel Webster) prominent in early American and American folk ...
