Window to the Sea
John Grant

Oct 2005
Paperback
·
 
From the Back Cover
As we stand eye-to-eye with an eel or octopus, watch the mesmerizing drift of jellyfish, or admire the powerful leap of a dolphin, we begin to comprehend the complexity, beauty, and adventure of our planet's inner space-the oceans. Public aquariums can open that window to the sea. They offer close and often eerily personal glimpses of a watery world far removed from our everyday experience and yet vital to our existence.
Window to the Sea, the companion to the PBS television program, provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes and into the field with professionals from four great aquariums: the New England Aquarium in Boston, the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, and the Waikiki Aquarium in Hawaii. You'll see how different aquariums work: how staff members care for and...

Review
"As fine a corrective to the usual mode of ‘labeling’ as we might wish for."—Art Times

"This instructive book is worthwhile not only for those interested in the specific artists or the period discussed, but for anyone seeking to understand the processes by which artistic production is pressed into service in the arbitration of culture across the social and political spectrum. . . .

Grant
John Mosier

Compact Disc
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Palgrave's Great Generals series continues with this sketchy, unbalanced homage to the Union war hero. Military historian Mosier (The Myth of the Great War) focuses on Grant's Civil War exploits, emphasizing his brilliant early victories and glossing over the bloody 1864 campaign when his generalship dimmed. A brief section on his presidency dubiously calls Grant "our most undervalued president." Mosier offers a good précis of Grant's virtues: his ability to translate penetrating strategic insights into vigorous, well-coordinated operations; his imperturbable coolness in the face of reverses; an energy and combativeness unmatched by other Union generals (especially his nominal superior, the conniving "good for nothing" Henry Halleck). But he flirts with hagiography, portraying Grant as both a military...


The Encyclopedia of Fantasy

Book Review
This masterful follow-up to the 1993 Encyclopedia of Science Fiction is an essential purchase for anyone who's serious about fantasy. Those who are serious about horror will also find it an excellent reference. The works of prolific and confusing authors such as Michael Moorcock, as well as authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien who have many posthumously published fragments, are explained with admirable clarity. Especially fascinating are the numerous terms for motifs and themes, constituting what the editors call a map of the many "fuzzy sets" in the universe of fantasy fiction--terms such as "crosshatch," "polder," and "water margin." There are many entries on horror movies and the better-known horror writers (only writers who write no fantasy, such as Richard Laymon,...

Rosemary and Peter Grant and those assisting them have spend twenty years on Daphne Major, an island in the Galapagos studying natural selection. They recognize each individual bird on the island, when there are four hundred at the time of the author's visit, or when there are over a thousand. They have observed about twenty generations of finches -- continuously.
Jonathan Weiner follows these scientists as they watch Darwin's finches and come up with a new understanding of life itself.

From Publishers Weekly

Book Review
Before he was sent to federal prison for treason (among other things), Joel Backman was an extremely powerful man. Known as "the broker," Backman was a high roller--a lawyer making $10 million a year who could "open any door in Washington." That is, until he tried to broker a deal selling access to the world's most powerful satellite surveillance system to the highest bidder. When caught, Backman accepted prison as the one option that would keep him safe and alive, since the interested parties (the Israelis, the Saudis, the Russians, and the Chinese) were all itching to get their hands on his secrets at any cost. Little does he know that his own government has designs on accessing that information--or at least letting it die with him. Now, six years after his incarceration, the director of the CIA convinces a lame duck...

Children Are from Heaven: Positive Parenting Skills for Raising Cooperative, Confident, and Compassionate Children
John Gray
0060930993
January 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Psychologist John Gray (he of Men Are from Mars... fame) cites a need to shift from "fear-based parenting" (a punitive and oppressive approach to child rearing) to "love-based parenting" (which accepts children's desires and negative emotions while still setting reasonable limits). With child and teen violence increasing, rampant low self-esteem, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and attention deficit disorder, he says, "the Western free world is experiencing a crisis in parenting. Almost all parents today are questioning both the old and the new ways of parenting. Nothing seems to be working."

He suggests "Five Messages of Positive Parenting" that will facilitate such a shift: It's okay to be different. It's okay to make mistakes. It's okay to express negative emotions. It's okay to want more. It's okay to say no, but...



Opus Dei: The First Objective Look behind the Myths and Reality of the Most Controversial Force in the Catholic Church
John L. Allen
0385514492
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
For readers of The Da Vinci Code, John Allen's book on Opus Dei may be something of a revelation. One opens it expecting to find at the very least GPS coordinates pinpointing albino monk training camps. Or perhaps full disclosure of untold wealth flowing through offshore bank accounts. Instead one finds exhaustive research, interviews and careful analysis that reveal a group alive with ideas and purpose, but a bit short on sinister plans. Removing the sense of mystery surrounding Opus Dei may not serve future thriller writers well, but the journey is fascinating in its own right. Allen's biography of Opus Dei is also necessarily a brief biography of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, born in Spain in 1902, whose vision of the sanctification of work gave birth to Opus Dei, or "The Work" as its members call it. ...
