Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
T. Harv Eker
0060763280
Mar 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Eker's claim to fame is that he took a $2,000 credit card loan, opened "one of the first fitness stores in North America," turned it into a chain of 10 within two and a half years and sold it in 1987 for a cool (but somewhat modest-seeming) $1.6 million. Now the Vancouver-based entrepreneur traverses the continent with his "Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar," on which this debut motivational business manual is based. What sets it apart is Eker's focus on the way people think and feel about money and his canny, class-based analyses of broad differences among groups. In rat-a-tat, "Let me explain" seminar-speak, Eker asks readers to think back to their childhoods and pick apart the lessons they passively absorbed from parents and others about money. With such psychological nuggets as "Rich people focus on opportunities/ Poor...

Book Description
The complete inside story of the shocking steroids scandal that turned the sports world upside down For years, in the shadowy reaches of the world of sport, there were rumors that some of our nation’s greatest athletes were using steroids, human growth hormone, and other drugs to run faster, jump higher, and hit harder. But as track stars like Marion Jones blazed their way to Olympic medals and sluggers such as Mark McGwire brought fans back to baseball with stratospheric home runs, sports officials, the media, and fans looked past the rumors and cheered on the stars to ever-higher levels of performance. Then, in December 2004, after more than fifteen months of relentless reporting, San Francisco Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams broke the story of the Bay Area Lab Co-operative, a...

The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
Neil Strauss
0060554738
September 1, 2005
Leather Bound
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
[Signature]Reviewed by Amy SohnI never dated Neil Strauss, but I dated guys like him. Like many New York women, I have always gone for balding, pale guys because they're grateful and good in bed. But a few years ago, a distraught Strauss decided he was a loser with women and set about transforming himself into the world's greatest pick-up artist. The Game is his long, often tedious but hilarious account of how he did it. This ugly-duckling tale will affect different readers in different ways, depending on their degree of cynicism: some will be awed by Strauss's ménage-à-trois snowball scene, while others will suspect it was cribbed from a third-rate porno Strauss watched in his pre-macking days.When his story begins Strauss is, well, a Neil: an unconfident, self-described AFC (average frustrated chump). He is also,...

The Westing Game
Ellen Raskin
0140386645
June 1997
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
THE WESTING GAME is a sly murder mystery. (Puzzle might be a better word--there's really only cartoon grisliness in this book.) Woodman's youthful voice and energetic delivery fit it perfectly. Expertly, he distinguishes at least a dozen principals of wildly varying age, class and ethnicity, avoiding the annoying falsetto that many male readers use to portray women and children. It's a great performance. S.P. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Booklist, starred review
A supersharp mystery. . . . Confoundingly clever, and very funny.

From Publishers Weekly
Two girls get involved in an elaborate "Egypt game," a fantasy game that soon leads to strange, unexplainable happenings. PW called the characters in Snyder's Newbery Honor winner "true originals." Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From AudioFile
An unlikely band of children, enthralled by the mysteries of the pharaohs, withdraws from daily life into an elaborate game of make-believe in their own Egypt. Combine exotica with murder and an enigmatic professor, and one has the makings of a super mystery. The narrator's delivery is clear and compelling. Her control of tone and register is excellent and allows her to move deftly among the diverse characters so that each stands distinct, whole and memorable. As the book was named a Newbery Honor Book some twenty...


Hardball
Christopher Matthews

Nov 1999
(Paperback) - Revised Ed.
·
 
Book Review
Hardball, first published in 1988, is like a modern version of Machiavelli's The Prince, only much more richly illustrated, with anecdotes drawn from talk-show host Chris Matthews's stint as a congressional staffer (where he worked for, among others, renowned Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill). Discussing such basic principles as "It's not who you know; it's who you get to know" and "Don't get mad, don't get even--get ahead," Matthews not only dishes out choice Washington insider info, he has over the years inspired many readers to apply his principles for political success to their own professional lives.

From Publishers Weekly
A former Senate aide, presidential speech writer and assistant to Tip O'Neill, Matthews here offers an entertaining view of Washington politics. He covers...
