Into the Wild
Jon Krakauer
0385486804
February 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
"God, he was a smart kid..." So why did Christopher McCandless trade a bright future--a college education, material comfort, uncommon ability and charm--for death by starvation in an abandoned bus in the woods of Alaska? This is the question that Jon Krakauer's book tries to answer. While it doesn't—cannot—answer the question with certainty, Into the Wild does shed considerable light along the way. Not only about McCandless's "Alaskan odyssey," but also the forces that drive people to drop out of society and test themselves in other ways. Krakauer quotes Wallace Stegner's writing on a young man who similarly disappeared in the Utah desert in the 1930s: "At 18, in a dream, he saw himself ... wandering through the romantic waste places of the world. No man with any of the juices of...


Handbook of Personality Psychology

Review
"Handbook of Personality Psychology is highly interesting and readable, comprehensive and authoritative but with depth that takes it well beyond the encyclopedia format...this volume certainly belongs on the shelf of every psychologist who teaches personality, but also on the shelf of every other scholar interested in what is known about what makes people tick."
--Lee Sechrest, University of Arizona in AMERICAN SCIENTIST
"...psychologists working in and with organizations will find many thought-provoking gems of ideas in these pages. I certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in the role of personality in everyday life - which should be everyone!"

Why Do Catholics Do That : A Guide to the Teachings and Practices of the Catholic Church
Kevin Orlin Johnson
0345397266
October 1995
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Why Do Catholics Do That? by Kevin Orlin Johnson assumes nothing and tells all. As such, it's not only an ideal catechism companion but also a source of infinite wisdom for students of art history, politics, literature, philosophy, and pretty much any other subject connected with Catholic history. In a voice refreshingly free of condescension (and full of humor, witnessed in chapter titles such as "Saints: How You Get To Be One"), Johnson defines and expatiates upon hundreds of topics, including the Mass, the rosary, the cross, the eucharist, and the pope. Why Do Catholics Do That? is destined for the all-time top 20 list of indispensable desk references. Whether your interest in Catholicism is devoutly religious or defiantly secular, you'll be glad Kevin Orlin Johnson has fulfilled his vocation so faithfully. --Michael...

Heaven
Angela Johnson
0689822901
July 1900
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
As in her Gone from Home (reviewed above), Johnson here explores the themes of what makes a place home and which people family. Fourteen-year-old Marley's tranquil life in Heaven, Ohio, turns hellish the day her family receives a letter from Alabama. The note (from the pastor of a church that was destroyed by arson) requests a replacement for Marley's baptismal record, and reveals that "Momma" and "Pops" are really Marley's aunt and uncle, and mysterious Jack (an alleged "uncle" with whom Marley has corresponded but doesn't remember) is her true father. In this montage of Marley's changing perceptions, Johnson presents fragments of the whole picture a little at a time: images of people, places (the Western Union building "1637" steps away from Marley's house) and artifacts (a box filled with love letters between...

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
George Gershwin is one of the giants of American music, unique in that he was both a brilliant writer of popular songs ("Swanee," "I Got Rhythm," "They Can't Take That Away From Me") and of more serious music, including "Rhapsody in Blue," "An American in Paris," and "Porgy and Bess." Now, in

musicians Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Alec Wilder (who analyzes the songs "That Certain Feeling" and "A...


Still Looking: Essays on American Art
John Updike
1400044189
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Bookmarks Magazine
Published primarily in the New York Review of Books, the collected essays in Still Looking are less art criticism than finely honed art appreciations. Reviewers note Updike’s inquisitive tone and earnest interest in his subject matter. The often honored (an American Book Award, an O. Henry Prize, a National Medal for the Humanities) and prolific author once aspired for a career in cartooning and studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford, England. The major complaint, if it can be registered as such, is that Updike is so effective at bringing these works to life that the book, though amply illustrated, provokes frustration that the exhibitions are no longer running.Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.

Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software
Erich Gamma
0201633612
October 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Design Patterns is a modern classic in the literature of object-oriented development, offering timeless and elegant solutions to common problems in software design. It describes patterns for managing object creation, composing objects into larger structures, and coordinating control flow between objects. The book provides numerous examples where using composition rather than inheritance can improve the reusability and flexibility of code. Note, though, that it's not a tutorial but a catalog that you can use to find an object-oriented design pattern that's appropriate for the needs of your particular application--a selection for virtuoso programmers who appreciate (or require) consistent, well-engineered object-oriented designs.

The Best Year of Their Lives: Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon in 1948: Learning the Secrets of Power
Lance Morrow
0465047238
March 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
The Best Year of Their Lives is not a typical presidential biography in that it forgoes the comprehensive approach to history. Instead, Lance Morrow shows why 1948 was a watershed year not just for John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon personally, but for the nation as well. That is the year that Johnson, in his bid for the Senate, used huge sums of corporate money to bombard the media with lies about his opponent, finally stealing the election by 87 votes by having a ballot box stuffed (thus earning the nickname "Landslide Lyndon"). Had he lost, he would have arguably been out of politics forever and the course of history would have been changed. At the same time, Nixon, as a freshman congressman, launched his political career by using his seat on the House Un-American Activities Committee to relentlessly...

Review
“Recommended”–Choice
“"Orrin Schwab's thoroughly researched and well-crafted study merits a close reading by students in need of tight, well-focused, and smart analysis of how and why the Vietnam War became unavoidably Americanized."”–American Historical Review

Book Description
Schwab examines America's decision to "stand in Vietnam" with a fresh perspective provided by new archival materials and the intellectual synthesis of institutional, political, and diplomatic history. Vietnam policy is shown at many different levels, from the presidency down to the level of CIA operatives in the field and public opinion specialists on the White House staff. The views of State Department officers, foreign public opinion, editorials in major U.S. newspapers,...


Woodcock-Johnson (R) III: Reports, Recommendations, and Strategies

April 2002
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Review
Woodcock-Johnson® III: Reports, Recommendations, and Strategies (Nancy Mather & Lynne Jaffe, New York: Wiley, 2002) is an essential resource, not only for evaluators who use the Woodcock-Johnson III and teachers who use the results of Woodcock-Johnson III (WJ III) assessments, but also for anyone involved in educational evaluation or planning individual educational programs.

The first section of the book begins with a collection of extremely well-designed forms, worksheets, and tables that make it much easier to organize and report WJ III evaluation findings so the findings will be understandable and helpful to teachers and parents. It continues with the clearest explanations I have seen of scores and levels of interpretation, including "sample statements for reports scores and score discrepancies." The section...



Judgment Days: Lyndon Baines Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr. , and the Laws That Changed America
Nick Kotz
0618088253
January 2005
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. King's leadership of the Civil Rights movement catalyzed a revolution in public consciousness that Johnson's matchless political skills cemented in the landmark voting and civil rights laws of the 1960s. In this engrossing narrative history, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Kotz (A Passion for Equality) follows their tense but fruitful working relationship from Johnson's assumption of the presidency in 1963 to King's assassination five years later. Theirs was a wary partnership, uneasy when they joined forces against Jim Crow in the wake of Kennedy's assassination, strained by King's opposition to the Vietnam War and continually undermined by FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who bombarded Johnson with reports of King's links to Communists and of his sexual indiscretions. In Kotz's sympathetic but...
