The Hobbit

Charles "Chuck" Dixon is an American comic book writer, perhaps best-known for long runs on Batman titles in the 1990s. His earliest comics work was writing Evangeline first for Comico Comics in 1984 (then later for First Comics, who published the on-going series), on which he worked with his then-wife, the artist Judith Hunt. His big break came one year later, when editor Larry Hama hired him to w Charles "Chuck" Dixon is an American comic book writer, perhaps best-known for long runs on Batman titles in the 1990s.

Carry On, Warrior

I really feel that I need to review this is two parts to accurately convey my feelings about this book, so I'm going to start with the nitty gritty here--the writing. I find books written from blogs to be problematic. Writing a book and writing a blog are not the same thing and, taking pieces from a blog and putting them into a book tends to be unsatisfying for me. A blog post does not a chapter make. I'm sure there have been blogs to books that are able to avoid this misstep, but Carry On, Warr I really feel that I need to review this is two parts to accurately convey my feelings about this book, so I'm going to start with the nitty gritty here--the writing.

Blind Spot

I've been tricked! Bamboozled! Played! *goes to look up other synonyms for tricked* Cheated! Conned! Deceived! Duped! Flimflammed (that's my favorite)! Swindled! But most of all, I've been disappointed. Disappointed that I went into Blind Spot thinking it'd be, well. . . good, disappointed in what it actually ended up being, and also, disappointed that it wasn't what it could have been. And what this could have been is so, so much more than it was. Your enjoyment in this novel boils down to one maI've been tricked! Bamboozled!

The Next Decade

A worthy follow up to the next 100 years written in the unbiased, unemotional, data-based, and calculated method that I have come to appreciate from the STRATFOR founder. Very interesting prologue when he describes that predicting a century is much easier than predicting a decade. The short term actions of men are difficult to predict, whether by mistake, stroke of genius, etc. . . But these actions tend to become averaged out in the long run when considering the larger subtle shifts over time. As A worthy follow up to the next 100 years written in the unbiased, unemotional, data-based, and calculated method that I have come to appreciate from the STRATFOR founder.

Book Of A Lifetime: The Mahabharata

One of the longest books in the world, the 'Mahabharata' tells the story of a country, a culture, and a family tearing itself apart. In ancient India, it was said that nothing exists which is not within its pages. This hubristic claim hints at the fatigue which sets in if you try to absorb it in one go. The epic is best read piecemeal, over several years, even a lifetime. The Kolkata publisher, P Lal, spent his entire career "transcreating" the epic. The University of Chicago translator, JAB van Buitenen, died on the job. RK Narayan took a more relaxed approach, abridging it into one volume, as did the Cambridge Sanskritist, John D Smith.

Book Review: Diabetes without Drugs « Conquering Diabetes

Monday, February 10, 2014 By Michael Dansinger, MD, with Caitlin Quinn, RD MS “It is a well documented fact that bleached white flour is contaminated with alloxan…which is known to destroy pancreatic function”.   When I read this sentence in the first few pages of Suzy Cohen’sDiabetes without Drugs-The Five Step Program to Control Blood Sugar Naturally and Prevent Diabetes Complications , I admit that I was not sure what she was talking about. I am familiar that alloxan is a chemical given to rats to induce diabetes for medical research, but in bread? I wasn’t so sure.

Law and Disorder (The Finnegan Connection, #1)

When a young woman’s journey home to help out her family, leaving her acting career behind, as well as her job at Finnegan’s Pub in New York, she never expected to be taken hostage in a robbery at the old estate and has no idea why anyone thinks there is anything of the kind of value that would even cause any interest. Of all of her captors, in outlaw masks, one seems to stand out as different, his eyes familiar and his demeanor was that of protector as opposed to villain.

Peace Child

If I were to play a drinking game with Peace Child and take but a single sip of wine every time I came across an exclamation point, I would be passed out by page 100. But if one can get past the excessive use of exclamation points – and, with some effort, I did – Peace Child tells a fascinating story. It is the true tale of missionaries who go to live among the remote Sawi tribes of Netherlands New Guinea, learn their language from scratch, and seek to communicate the love, forgiveness, and recoIf I were to play a drinking game with Peace Child and take but a single sip of wine every time I came across an exclamation point, I would be passed out by page 100.
