Simplified For Everyone
I FINALLY UNDERSTAND! I am a very satisfied Outskirts author, and I do not think I could have proceeded with publishing my first novel if it weren't for this book. I had so many questions; and I frightened myself with my own lack of knowledge. But Brent opened the self-publishing world up to me as he opened my eyes regarding some of the less-than-desirable facets of traditional publishing. I ...
METHUEN PUBLISHING LTD
I just loved this book, I have given it as gifts to many people. Even if they are not orchid collectors, it is so interesting to view the lifes of those who do collect orchids. They are a varied group. I think Eric Hansen is such a good writer, the way he sees things in a totally new light. He actually experience the adventures, as a result he is able to give an acurate discriptiong of events. ...

My Family and Other Animals (Classic, Nature, Penguin)
The best book I have ever read in my life!!!!
I am not the kind of person who reads a book twice. I enjoy reading a good book and then moving on to another good book. But, I have to say I read My Family and Other Animals at least fifteen times. Every time is better than the next. Gerald Durrell never fails to make me laugh, no matter how many times I read his book. I laugh so loud that my parents come into the room to check if I am ...
The Synonym Finder and The Word Finder, Two-Volume Set
Jerome Irving Rodale
Stop Reading All The Reviews and Buy The Damn Book!
The single most essential writing reference work ever published in the English language in this century or any other...assuming that you give a damn about language and the quality of your writing, and, of course, that you already have a good dictionary or two. You probably throw away more cash on pure garbage in one day than you would spend on this book. So just buy the book. Before ...
Confessions of a Public Speaker
A crucial read for anyone responsible for presentations
Before speaking at a national event, I put myself through a public speaking crash course that included multiple coaching sessions from my wife--whom was a national forensics champ in a previous life--and by reading this book. The two balanced each other perfectly. This book is written in an easy prose style that goes down like a drink of water, and is packed full of both useful philosophies for ...

More Than Just a Dog Story
If you love dogs, you absolutely have to read this book. And, if you don't love dogs, you still absolutely have to read this book because it is so rich in its enthusiasm for living life and meeting its challenges that it would be a shame to miss it. Paulsen enters the Iditarod, but the book is much more than his account of the race. His description of preparing for the race is rich in humor ...

Pieces of My Heart: Writings Inspired by Animals and Nature
Pender County Resident
First of all I would like to say that I love this book. It is so heart touching. Second of all in reponse to Kat Lady. I am a former resident of Pender county. Pender County NC is a rural area and the mentality that many, many people in this area have towards animals is heartbreaking and unforgivable. I would be wiling to bet that those dogs that Mr. Willis took were probably being neglected ...
Angelina Jolie's: Notes from My Travels
Angelina Jolie Shines!!!!!
I didn't know Angelina Jolie had written a book, and incredibly a book about her experiences in refugee camps. It is amazing what those people go through, and how she, being an artist, expresses her feelings of the situation. There is no acting here. I admire Angelina. She might have her issues. I knew she was a beautiful women in the outside, what I didn't know was how beautiful she was in the ...

Secrets of the Zona Rosa: How Writing (and Sisterhood) Can Change Women's Lives
An Exhilarating Experience
When you pick up a copy of Secrets of the Zona Rosa, better pick up two or three extra notebooks and a box of pens or pencils because you are about to start writing. It's hard to imagine not getting itchy writing fingers while reading the intriguing titles in the table of contents: "We are all doors until someone slams us," "If I was really wild," and "If I thought like a guy." Rosemary ...

The country bunny and the little gold shoes,: As told to Jenifer,

This book was brought to my attention by a dear friend who loves books as I do. She told me this was a special book when she was a child and her children and grandchildren enjoy it as well.

I have also given her 'Make Way for the Ducklings' (we live just south of Boston),'Good Night Moon' a Beatrix Potter ...
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 ...

Your Screenplay Sucks!: 100 Ways to Make It Great
William M Akers
Michael Wiese Productions
Worth ten times the price
I recommend this book to anyone who will listen. The title initially turned me off (who needs more negativity?), but when I broke down and read it... light bulbs went off. There's not a turd in the bunch, and despite considering myself an experienced, knowledgeable screenwriter (my last script reached the finals of Scriptapalooza 2009), at least twenty of these tips had never occurred to be ...
