Simple no nonsense approach. Cuts thru all the hyphe and explains the market in laymans terms

Essential book to understand the Internet and related tech.
"The Internet Report" is excellent and will give you the most timely and accurate picture of everything involved with the Internet. As one who teaches Internet classes, I can tell you that this book is just full of great facts about Internet history, Internet infrastructure, Internet technologies, and where various Internet-related businesses will succeed (and fail). If you only buy one technology book in the next six months, it HAS to be this book! It is essential to read this book because your competitors and your customers will read it

One of the most original Christian writers
I highly recommend books by E. Stanley Jones to all serious seekers of God and of Truth, no matter what religion they might belong. By serious seekers I mean those people who are ready to things and to ponder for themselves, not just to swallow spiritual junk food that is widely advertised, and, therefore, popular in contemporary Christian culture.

For many years, this man was a missionary in India, where he started retreat centers that he called "Christian Ashrams." Some of those Ashrams exist until this day. He was a prolific writer and left a good number of excellent books.

Books of E. Stanley Jones are not as popular now as they used to be, and almost forgotten, but what a treasure they are! One of the things you need to have in mind is that they are not an easy reading. You can quickly be distracted from a large volume of 360+ pages to something more enticing, but I challenge you to read at least one of his books from cover to cover. I am assured that you will be amazed at his approach to the Christianity. Perhaps, it will change your life, just as it changed mine 6 years ago.

The basic idea of E. Stanley Jones is that the ways of life and the ways of Christ are one. According to him, Jesus was not a moralist, imposing a moral code upon humanity, but the great Revealer of the Truth of Being. I would say, that he probably was a panentheist (don't confuse with "pantheist"!), although he mentioned it in his writings. Believing in the supremacy of Christ, he was willing to see grains of Truth scattered through all religions. No wonder that Ghandi choose this man to be his personal and intimate friend, although he did not share his convictions.

A remarkable anthology of twenty-four poets
The Franconia, New Hampshire, farm of the American poet Robert Frost was turned into a museum and center for poetry and the arts in 1976. From that time, "The Frost Place" has been annual event wherein an emerging poet has been invited to spend the summer living in the house where Frost once lived and wrote some of his greatest poetry. The Breath Of Parted Lips: Voices From The Robert Frost Place, Volume One is a remarkable anthology of twenty-four poets, each of whom won that honor of a summer's residency and document the success of the original concept as a means of generating outstanding poetry while nurturing the poet's muse in the rooms and views that were once the inspiration of the great Robert Frost. Poem At 40: Windwashed--as if standing next to the highway,/a truck long as the century sweeping by,/all things at last bent in the same direction./An opening, as if all/the clothes my ancestors ever wore/dry on lines in my body:/wind-whipped, parallel with the ground,/some sleeves sharing a single clothespin/so that they seem to clasp hands,/seem to hold on.//And now that I can see/up the old women's dresses,/there's nothing but a filtered light./And now that their men's smoky breath/has traversed the earth,/it has nothing to do with them./And now that awkward, fat tears of rain/slap the window screen,/now that I'm naked too,/cupping my genitals, tracing with a pencil/the blue vein between my collar bone and breast,/I'll go to sleep when I'm told.

The Best Book on Interfaith Marriage
The Rosenbaums have written a book that will make you laugh, cry and understand that two people in love will build a stronger life supporting each other instead of compromising their beliefs. If you are considering an interfaith marriage or know someone who is, I highly recommend this book.

Feels like your there
This book gives a vivid image of the Roman gardens. It explores the much unknown archeology of agriculture. The beautiful photographs illustrate the precision and wonder of Roman gardening, or the remains of it. I highly recomend this book to anyone interested in Pompeii or just the average run of the mill gardener.

An Indispensible book
Quite simply the best book/catalogue of it's type I have ever seen. The presentation of the book is good, as is the reproduction of the paintings. The short biographies of the artists are quite simply the brilliant, and contain more information than much longer articles. If you only have one book about late romantic art have this one.

Borrowers Afloat (Gk Hall Large Print Children's Series)
Published in Hardcover by G K Hall & Co (1988)

The Borrowers Afloat
One time I saw a movie it was called The Borrowers. I thought it might be a little bit like the book. I thought it would be about borrowers who were on the river in a teapot. The cover gave a large hint. Borrowers are tiny people only about six inches high. Borrowers can not live without people. A family of three borrowers are living inside of a cotige wall,then the owners suddenly move out. There is one place called Little Fordham where borrowers live so they set out to find it. There were some parts that were slow but it got better toward the end. If you like books with little people mabye you want try it?

The third house to fourth in the third book
In this book, "The borrowers afloat" the Clocks once again venture out of a their brand new (rundown) house. This is their 3rd house in the 3rd book. This book tells how they manage "afloat" to get away from the empty cotttage, and "SPECIAL" relatives. Will they get to their dream house?

More adventures with the Borrowers
In this, the third book in the Borrowers series (after The Borrowers, and The Borrowers Afield), the Clocks (Pod, Homily and Arrietty) find that they must leave the safety of their new house and venture forth once again into the great big world. Setting their sights on Little Fordham, a miniature model town, the Clocks follow young Spiller out. But the world is a dangerous place for someone as small as a Borrower, and their voyage is filled with excitement.

Once again, Marty Norton has produced a story that is a lot of fun. Containing both plenty of adventure with a heartwarming story. My children and I loved this story, and you and yours will too.

Starveling Year
Published in Paperback by Auckland University Press (1995)
Author: Mary Stanley

Average review score:

an undiscovered poet
Although Stanley's slim volume of poetry is not earth-shattering, she does have a unique talent for painting the new zealand landscape in a very subtle and strangely obscure way. Her ideas about gender and married life will appeal to any woman, particularly when read in context-- Stanley only published a few poems during her lifetime, unfortunately limited by "womanly" circumstances from doing more with her talent. a wonderful little find, and a few very interesting poems for those who enjoy NZ culture.
