    When reviewing a book, it's best to quote from it liberally, thereby revealing either the author's strengths or her weaknesses.  But how is one

    to Rowling (by Harold Bloom)?

The author, Sandin, has been paraplegic for over 30 years due to a car accident in 1975; she conveys some of the annoying and funny sides of this condition as well as her thoughts on others’ behavior.

    If you are as curious as I am as to how Bernard Madoff pulled off the largest Ponzi scheme of all time, you have to read Deborah and Gerald Strober's Catastrophe: The Story of Bernard L. Madoff, The Man Who Swindled the World, however, one word of caution, one of the risks in writing a book pertaining to a criminal saga that is still unfolding is that before the ink is dry, some facts or speculations have become obsolete.

    Can GM survive? More importantly, should it? These are the questions being posed by journalists almost daily, whether covering Capitol Hill or reporting on Wall Street losses by the Big Three. It’s a story that hasn’t fully played out, and also one that has gotten little background coverage…until now. In his brilliant new book, William Holstein lays out the case for GM:

    Author: R. Albert Mohler Jr.
    ISBN-10: 1601420803
    ISBN-13: 978-1601420800

    Contrary to what one might think from reading the cover of the book, it would be wrong to say that R. Albert Mohler Jr.’s book, Desire and Deceit: The Real Cost of the New Sexual Tolerance, is a “right jab” from the evangelical side of the political spectrum. It would also be wrong to categorize Mohler as preaching to the choir, which he actually is but that isn’t the whole story either. Albert Mohler’s book is much more of an exercise in educating the religious right so that they will have their own ammunition to fight moral sexual degradation. It is an educational lecture and a pep talk, if you will.
