“Such a fun story!” Admittedly not as good as the last Wee Free Men book, but that would be had to do! This is a series that has split the sides of all ages in our family! Everyone insists on reading it together, and heaven help the person that reads ahead!
“Very Clear” Mr. Ponsi takes care to cover all the points clearly when he goes through each trade. For example, not only he tells us about the entry, stop, and exits but also about reloading where it is relevant. Great teacher.
The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy’s Finest Hour
“WWII Historian” This is must read for any WWII or Navy buff. It is incredible how the USS Samuel B. Roberts, destroyer escort, duels a heavy cruiser to a stalemate and blows off her number 3 turret while firing 600+ rounds of 54 pound 5 inch shells.
The Fletcher Class destroyers were the 5th greatest [...]
“Great historical scenes, but…” I found the plot and characters really lackluster. I’m surprised to see so many good reviews–I’m a voracious reader and rarely put a book down disatisfied, so my reviews are normally higher than average. But this book was a disappointment. I really did enjoy the historical tidbits and the descriptions [...]
“The Secret by Beverly Lewis” This was another of Beverly Lewis” great books, well written. I will be sharing it with my friends.
“6 Days of War” This is a terrific book for someone who, like me, isn’t immersed in the history of the Middle East. It’s chronological, thorough enough for one to be able to follow the events, and spends (as it should) about half of its pages on ‘how we got to this point.’ It [...]
“Should be called the mistake for christ…” This is a horribly written book, with contradictions within chapters, and no fact checking done.
Take these two quotes from chapter three:
“And this is something else that favors the New Testament. We have copies commencing within a couple of generations of the originals, whereas in the case [...]
“Very helpful” Quick, targeted approach. Just the right amount of information. Let’s you get to the bottom line quickly and then provides additional reading to expand on the personal analysis.
“Great Book on Prayer” The Power of a Praying? Husband by Stormie Omartianis a book that urges husbands to pray for his wife’s emotions among other things like her sexuality her skills as a mother and her ability to be faithful. The author explains to husbands that praying while you are bitter or with [...]
“Worth Thinking About” I appreciated this story a lot more after re-reading it. It does, at first, seem as sappy as many reviewers have said, but on a second look, the author does convey some strong ideas well. Behind every person that we brush past–sometimes without noticing–is a story. [...]
“A classic with endless implications for modern life” The Art of War is ostensibly about winning battles in ancient China, but has endless implications for life today. It is in print in wide circulation mainly because people see it as valuable for business strategy, but it is also a useful way to think [...]
“An entertaining angle on wealth creation” A lot of what’s in this book I’ve read before in other books on creating wealth. However, the author’s writing style is pretty entertaining. It’s a great book to keep yourself inspired if you’ve read other books but lost your motivation.
“Godd Starter book” Gives you the basics that build the blocks for a solid foundation on the stock market.
“Simply a brilliant novel” The greatest testament to Stoker’s work is that it remains uniquely compelling despite popular conceptions shaped by some appalling cinematic adapdations. Even now, it is possible to understand the enthusiatic response of contemporary readers to his sensational tale of “the Undead” and the hardy souls who take on the eponymous [...]
” A poignant love story” “Message in a bottle” is a sentimental love story. Theresa Osborne (a divorcee with a twelve year old son, Kevin) falls in love with Garrett (a widower) after reading his message of love in a bottle washed ashore. Though the feeling turns out to be mutual, Garrett is [...]
“Loved it!” I have to admit I have not been a huge fan of Lisa Kleypas in the past, her works are not among my ‘must read’ authors, but she surprised me with this book. I found her stories, in the past, to be a bit humdrum. Not boring but not really [...]
“Western Introduction to Eastern Philosophy” Although I can understand the longing to separate oneself from the frustrations and hypocrisy of human life, it does seem like an abandonment rather than an accomplishment to me. Maybe because of this, and because I had been exposed to the tenets of both Buddhism and Hinduism prior to [...]
“Great Series!” Charlaine Harris has become one of my favorite authors. This is a great series with a colorful cast of characters!
Stop Negotiating With Your Teen: Strategies for Parenting Your Angry, Manipulative, Moody, or Depressed Adolescent
“Helpful, Useful Information” I was an angry, manipulative, moody and depressed adolescent–in fact I wrote about it in my book, CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC SCHOOLGIRL by Michelle Kane.
This book has some outstanding strategies that may have worked if my parents paid enough attention to me and stopped fighting with each other long enough to [...]
“Buy it for the holidays” You want a book that can help you with your family relationships over the holidays? This one will do it for you. I read it and it has already helped me with my teenage daughter. Combine this book with Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher, and [...]
