All You Need Is Love and Other Lies about Marriage
John W. Jacobs
0060509317
Mar 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This particularly thoughtful and articulate volume marks the arrival of major new voice in couple’s psychology. A professor at NYU’s School of Medicine, Jacobs has also run a private psychiatric practice for the past 30 years, and his experience working with couples in both locations informs the practical, realistic view of marriage he presents in this book. "Virtually everyone has significant problems at some time in their marriage," he acknowledges. Some of those problems are made by husbands and wives, he explains; some of them are caused by biology, or by the tremendous social and economic changes of the past 40 years. Some are handed down generation after generation in families. Jacobs considers each of these sources in turn as he deconstructs "The Seven Lies of Marriage"—among them the ideas...

Feb 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Review
“The mathematical development is clear and concise, and examples interspersed throughout clearly illustrate the different principles considered. For practicing chemists or physicists with previous exposure to group theory, this book is indispensable. As a primary resource for special-topics graduate courses, this book would be outstanding.”
Choice

Providing a detailed account of Group Theory and its applications to chemical physics, the first half of this book focuses on elementary topics, such as molecular and crystal symmetry.

Virginia Woolf's Jacob's Room
Virginia Woolf

May 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Based on the holograph manuscript in the Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature at the New York Public library, this transcription follows the original three-volume manuscript page for page and line for line, giving the reader a sense of how "Jacob's Room" was truly a work in progress. Written between 1920 and 1922, "Jacob's Room" was a literary experiment for Woolf, leaving behind the traditional forms of her previous novels, "The Voyage Out" and "Night and Day." Included in Bishop's text are the short sketches that Virginia Woolf included in volume II of the manuscript. Spelling and punctuation has not been corrected or normalized to maintain continuity with the original manuscript.

From Publishers Weekly
As Franken gleefully points out, Slate editor Weisberg has found a true gravy train, discovering enough previously uncollected nonsensical utterances by President Bush to fill a third volume. The president may have begun watching what he says since the publication of the first two volumes; Weisberg has to return to the 2000 campaign trail to fill out this collection. At least one statement, substituting "plowed" for "proud," raises the question of a presidential speech impediment, but that excuse won't get the self-proclaimed "master of low expectations" out of any of the other verbal missteps recorded here for posterity.

Book Description
"I can only speak to myself."True -- and yet we must listen. Sometimes his accidental wit speaks louder than any prepared statement."Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.""I always jest to people, the Oval Office is the kind of place where people stand outside, they're getting ready to come in and tell me what for, and they walk in and get overwhelmed by the atmosphere. And they say, 'Man, you're looking pretty.'""I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein."Thanks to the faithful work of Jacob Weisberg, the wisdom of George W. Bush -- America's Malapropist in Chief -- has been carefully preserved for the ages in annual editions. Now that the...

Rumpelstiltskin
Adapted by Paul O. Zelinsky
0140558640
August 1996
Paperback

Book Review
Paul O. Zelinsky, 1998 Caldecott medalist for Rapunzel, also has three Caldecott Honor Books under his belt: Hansel and Gretel, Swamp Angel, and this fine edition of Rumpelstiltskin. Zelinsky's oil paintings are perfectly suited to the strange saga of the little man with the secret name who knows how to spin straw into gold. The golden light infusing the late medieval setting subtly reinforces the theme. The visual characterization of Rumpelstiltskin is a triumph: an odd elfin man with bulbous eyes, a gigantic, flat black hat, impossibly skinny arms and legs, and long, pointed black shoes. This Rumpelstiltskin is not scary or horrid, but rather mischievous and weird. When the young queen finally guesses his name, and thus is able to keep her baby, he flies off on his huge cooking spoon (with a pout),...

Book Description
Mr. Hatchard's conversation for nearly a week had been confined to fault- finding and grunts, a system of treatment designed to wean Mrs. Hatchard from her besetting sin of extravagance. On other occasions the treatment had, for short periods, proved successful, but it was quite evident that his wife's constitution was becoming inured to this physic and required a change of treatment. The evidence stared at him from the mantelpiece in the shape of a pair of huge pink vases, which had certainly not been there when he left in the morning.
