Fish! A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results
Stephen C. Lundin
0786866020
March 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Here's another management parable that draws its lesson from an unlikely source--this time it's the fun-loving fishmongers at Seattle's Pike Place Market. In Fish! the heroine, Mary Jane Ramirez, recently widowed and mother of two, is asked to engineer a turnaround of her company's troubled operations department, a group that authors Stephen Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen describe as a "toxic energy dump." Most reasonable heads would cut their losses and move on. Why bother with this bunch of losers? But the authors don't make it so easy for Mary Jane. Instead, she's left to sort out this mess with the help of head fishmonger Lonnie. Based on a bestselling corporate education video, Fish! aims to help employees find their way to a fun and happy workplace. While some may find the story line and prescriptions--such...


The Young Man and the Sea
Rodman Philbrick
0439368308
May 2005
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8–Ernest Hemingway, the author of The Old Man and the Sea, once remarked that American literature began with Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Rodman Philbrick repays the compliment with a nod to Hemingway in The Young Man and the Sea(Blue Sky, 2004) set in coastal Maine. Trying to overcome the sadness of his mother's death and his father's melancholy and inattention, Philbrick's protagonist, Skiff Beaman, sets out to sea in a small wooden boat to catch a giant fish with a harpoon made by his Dad, hoping to earn enough money to repair the family boat. Landing a giant tuna in open water, Skiff, like Hemingway's Old Man, fights the forces of nature and finds the strength to catch the record-breaking fish. Expertly narrated by actor Kirby Heyborne, this is a compelling coming-of-age...


Hatteras Blues
Tom Carlson
0807829757
Oct 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
The "blues" in this book's title refers both to blue-water fishing--for blue marlin, striped bass, and other deep-sea fish--and to the blues that come from personal loss. Carlson wrote this memoir to help him deal with grief over his wife's death and to celebrate the fishermen of the Outer Banks in North Carolina, a resilient but besieged community, constantly at risk from real-estate development and the hazards of life on the water. The text weaves together information about the history of the Outer Banks and the fishing there as well as such related topics as geology, hurricanes, lifesaving, and lighthouses. He focuses on the Fosters of the village of Hatteras, whose patriarch, Ernal, introduced many of the inventions and innovations that make the Outer Banks a popular fishing destination. His sketches of the Fosters...

Book Review
"Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?" Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. While many rhymes in this couplet collection resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss's intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book's original publication in 1960--so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read! (Ages 4 to 8) ...

Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The term fisherwoman does not exactly roll trippingly off the tongue, and Linda Greenlaw, the world's only female swordfish boat captain, isn't flattered when people insist on calling her one. "I am a woman. I am a fisherman... I am not a fisherwoman, fisherlady, or fishergirl. If anything else, I am a thirty-seven-year-old tomboy. It's a word I have never outgrown." Greenlaw also happens to be one of the most successful fishermen in the Grand Banks commercial fleet, though until the publication of Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm, "nobody cared." Greenlaw's boat, the Hannah Boden, was the sister ship to the doomed Andrea Gail, which disappeared in the mother of all storms in 1991 and became the focus of Junger's book. The Hungry Ocean, Greenlaw's account of a monthlong swordfishing trip over 1,000 nautical miles...

Book Review
If you read this very popular book just before bed, and the light is still on in the hallway, you can make the rainbow scales glitter on the page, and realize why the Rainbow Fish was so proud of his beautiful decoration. Sometimes, though, being too proud of outside beauty can blind a fish, or a child (or even, heaven forbid, a parent) to the beauty people hold inside. That's the lesson of this simple tale, imported from Switzerland. It's a useful one for future sneaker and designer clothing shoppers, for rainbow fish--and for quieter, plainer minnows, too. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The Big Oyster : History on the Half Shell

February 28, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Here's a chatty, free-wheeling history of New York City told from the humble perspective of the once copious, eagerly consumed, now decimated eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginicas). Research addict Kurlansky (Cod, etc.) starts from the earliest evidence of Lenape oyster middens, or beds, discovered by explorer Henry Hudson and others as evidence that natives enjoyed the shellfish as a delicacy, much as the Europeans did. When the Dutch arrived, the estuary of the lower Hudson, with its rich confluence of rivers, contained 350 square miles of oyster beds—"fully half of the world's oysters." The huge oyster stores contributed mightily to the mercantile wealth and natural renown of New Amsterdam, then inherited by the British, who were crazy about oysters; pickled oysters became an important...

Sport Fish of Florida

Book Description
THE ANGLER'S PRACTICAL GUIDE The good, the bad, the ugly--for the very first time, they're all here together in a book of their own, a book that illustrates and describes virtually every kind of fish an angler in Florida--or the Bahamas or Caribbean Islands--could expect to find on the end of a line. In this book you'll find the scoop on every hook-and-line species from the mightiest Marlin to the lowliest Lizardfish, along with advice on how to catch each one and how good it is to eat. Because it's designed as a practical guide for fishermen, every effort has been made to keep biological jargon at bay. However, there is one nod to the world of science that is unavoidable--the inclusion of scientific names so that each of the species can be definitely pinpointed. Without scientific names, confusion would reign,...


Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World
Mark Kurlansky
0140275010
June 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
You probably enjoy eating codfish, but reading about them? Mark Kurlansky has written a fabulous book--well worth your time--about a fish that probably has mattered more in human history than any other. The cod helped inspire the discovery and exploration of North America. It had a profound impact upon the economic development of New England and eastern Canada from the earliest times. Today, however, overfishing is a constant threat. Kurlansky sprinkles his well-written and occasionally humorous history with interesting asides on the possible origin of the word codpiece and dozens of fish recipes. Sometimes a book on an offbeat or neglected subject really makes the grade. This is one of them. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Fishing on the Edge
Michael Iaconelli

May 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
Who would have thought a book about competitive bass fishing could be entertaining--even for people who don't know the first thing about a rod, reel, or bait? Author Iaconelli certainly doesn't fit most stereotypes of a fisherman. His narration of how he became a champion bass fisher is irreverent, and his contagious enthusiasm comes through in every word. While the fishing terminology is a bit daunting (the audiobook could use a small glossary), Iaconelli's chronicle of his rise from South Philadelphia to the zenith of a sport dominated by Southerners never disappoints.

Kindergarten-Grade 2 These stories, adapted from filmstrips, are very short, and are shorter on plot and action than the original series. Predictably, each page looks like one filmstrip frame with a caption below. In Curious George Goes Fishing, George tries his hand at fishingbut he catches only the fish in a man's frying pan, which he casts into the water. In Curious George Vis its a Police Station , George delights in swinging from the barred doors of the jail cells in the new police station. He proceeds to lock up the police chief and the mayor. In both books, the young monkey redeems himself. These short stories don't have the read-aloud charm of the original ``Cu rious George'' books (Houghton), but for youngsters who desperately...

From Publishers Weekly
Santella, a freelance writer for the New York Times, the New Yorker and Fly Rod & Reel magazine, offers 50 short takes on the ultimate fly-fishing destinations in this beautifully photographed and nicely packaged volume. Each locale comes recommended by an avid fisher; for example, the founder of Frontiers Travel, Mike Fitzgerald, and his son, also named Mike Fitzgerald, suggest fishing for Atlantic salmon at Laxa I Adaldal in Iceland. Fly-fishing instructor Cathy Beck leads Santella to the thrill of catching snook off Boca Paila in the Yucatan. And Sweetwater Travel founder Jeff Vermillion describes the excitement of fishing on the Ponoi River in Mongolia for taimen ("the world’s largest almonid, capable of reaching 70-plus inches in length and more than 100 pounds"). In Europe, Simon Gawesworth tells...


Clouser's Flies: Tying And Fishing the Fly Patterns of Bob Clouser

January 10, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Review
"Always an experimenter when conventional fly patterns are not working, Bob tweaks patterns, or even invents new ones, to fool fish. His Clouser Deep Minnow is undoubtedly the most popular fly pattern to be developed in the last several decades. Bob shares his solid experience to help you tie better flies and understand why you do or do not catch fish. This book is one of the most useful published in some time." --Lefty Kreh

Book Description
Clouser's approach to fly design begins and ends onstream, with a lot of time spent in between at the workbench. Careful observation of the behaviors, habitats, and physical features of the foods fish eat is essential to developing a fly that looks and acts like the real thing. But the pattern must also pass rigorous standards of durability, ease...

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Stylized fish shapes in flat, razzle-dazzle colors against a dark blue background float across the pages from one to ten, accompanied by one little dark fish who keeps the count going. Cutout circles at the eyes reveal colors on succeeding pages. The slight text, occasionally in rhyme, introduces adjectives through the count, and tries to set a context of wish-fulfillment. It's a slick production, attempting several concepts at once--numbers, shapes, colors, imagining, addition to a value of one--but it doesn't quite...

Paperback

Book Description
Pennsylvania has one of the highest per capita populations of flyfishers in the country, and much of the sport's early history in America came from this wonderful state. In this 525 page guidebook, the ninth in our series of Flyfisher's Guides, veteran angling author Dave Wolf highlights the best flyfishing opportunities throughout the state in great detail with over 90 detailed maps and 60+ hatch charts.

Book Review
You know the saying: Give a man (or woman) a fish, and you give him dinner; teach a man (or woman) to fish and he'll have dinner for the rest of his life. The always entertaining and instructional "... for Dummies" series reeled in witty outdoors writer Peter Kaminsky to keep the rest of us fed--as in food for the table and food for thought--with this step-by-step guide to pretty much every right and obtuse angle on angling. As with all the books in the series, Fishing is filled with punchy advice, plenty of diagrams, and a series of Top 10 lists that should bag aspiring fishers hook, line, and sinker.

Book Description
No one can promise that you will catch fish all the time. Fish, after all, would just as soon never taste a hook or feel the sizzle of a frying pan....

Book Review
Heftier than most trophy trout, Ken Schultz's thoroughly comprehensive reference may be too big to fit into your fly box, but it'll take you more places than a marlin fighting a hook. Schultz knows what he's talking about; a staffer at Field & Stream for more than 25 years, he's held seven world fishing records at one time or another and was recently inducted into the Fishing Hall of Fame. Somewhere along the way, he put down his rod long enough to reel in more than 100 expert contributors from around the world to help compile what should be the definitive reference on all things angling for some time.

More than 2,200 entries cover the whole ocean--plus rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds--of sportfishing with topics ranging from technique and equipment to the fish themselves. You want the ABCs of sonar? It's here. Unsure...
