S Street Rising Book Review:

During the height of the crack epidemic that decimated the streets of D.C., Ruben Castaneda covered the crime beat for the Washington Post. The first in his family to graduate from college, he had landed a job at one of the country's premier newspapers. But his apparent success masked a devastating secret: he was a crack addict. Even as he covered the drug-fueled violence that was destroying the city, he was prowling S Street, a 24/7 open-air crack market, during his off hours, looking for his next fix. Castaneda's remarkable book, S Street Rising, is more than a memoir; it's a portrait of a city in crisis. It's the adrenalin-infused story of the street where Castaneda quickly became a regular, and where a fledgling church led by a charismatic and streetwise pastorwas protected by the local drug kingpin, a dangerous man who followed an old-school code of honor. It's the story of Castaneda's friendship with an exceptional police homicide commander whose career was derailed when he ran afoul of Mayor Marion Barry and his political cronies. And it's a study of the city itself as it tried to rise above the bloody crack epidemic and the corrosive politics of the Barry era. S Street Rising is The Wire meets the Oscar-winning movie Crash. And it's all true.

The Raven s Hat Book Review:

Games that show how mathematics can solve the apparently unsolvable. This book presents a series of engaging games that seem unsolvable--but can be solved when they are translated into mathematical terms. How can players find their ID cards when the cards are distributed randomly among twenty boxes? By applying the theory of permutations. How can a player guess the color of her own hat when she can only see other players' hats? Hamming codes, which are used in communication technologies. Like magic, mathematics solves the apparently unsolvable. The games allow readers, including university students or anyone with high school-level math, to experience the joy of mathematical discovery.

Flow Like Water Book Review:

Saint John of Kronstadt taught, "Those who are trying to lead a spiritual life have to carry on a most skillful and difficult warfare, through their thoughts, every moment of their life-that is, a spiritual warfare; it is necessary that our whole soul should be every moment a clear eye, able to watch and notice the thoughts entering our heart from the evil one and repel them; the hearts of such men should be always burning with faith, humility and love; otherwise the subtlety of the Devil finds an easy access to them, followed by a diminution of faith, or entire unbelief, and then by every possible evil, which it will be difficult to wash away even by tears. Do not, therefore, allow your heart to be cold, especially during prayer, and avoid in every way cold indifference. Very often it happens that prayer is on the lips, but in the heart cunning, incredulity or unbelief, so that by the lips the man seems near to God, whilst in his heart he is far from Him. And, during our prayers, the evil one makes use of every means to chill our hearts and fill them with deceit in a most imperceptible manner to us. Pray and fortify yourself, fortify your heart." An Orthodox Monastery is a spiritual battleground. This is a truth that the nuns of Saint Maria Skobtsova's Monastery have always known. The nuns' work has brought them a fresh appreciation of that: in their medical clinic caring for cardiac patients; in their hospice program, caring for the dying; in their Community Supported Agriculture program, providing food for their subscribers and for themselves and their employees; and in their training program for certified nursing assistants. But most of all, they have learned this in their prayers and in the interactions of their growing community. Yet, it wasn't until one of the nuns was slandered by an old enemy, accused of murdering a hospice patient, that the nuns of Saint Maria's Monastery, come to an intimate awareness of how very much the battle is more within the soul of each nun than exterior. Still, St John of Kronstadt also taught, "Edifying words, the writings of the Holy Fathers, prayers, and especially the words of the Word Himself, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, are indeed living water; water runs, and the words flow like water; water refreshes and gives life to the body, and edifying words animate the soul, filling it with peace and joy, or with compunction and contrition for sin." This, too, is something that the nuns have come to know intimately.

Valley Rising Book Review:

This is a publication of Floricanto and Berkeley Presses. This is a powerful reflection-of a sincere man dedicated to the betterment of his Mexican American people-on the very deep, personal, structural and historical root causes of segregation and its dehumanizing effects. A personal and intimate story of the life of Gilberto Aguirre growing from infant to successful physician. From living in the barrio to a respectful neighborhood, you meet his family, friends, teachers, coaches and fellow workers that make up his multiply divided world of many social, economic and racial tensions. You experience the agonies and the joys, the frustrations and dreams, the painful insults and encouraging moments, and most of all the hard work fueled by the deep commitment to overcome the inferiority complex by achieving success without losing his Mexican American soul. The most powerful, beautiful and moving section of the book is the account of his first born son, Jaime. Jaime has struggled through life with many physical difficulties, yet he is the most positive individual I have ever met. Gilberto states: "What Jaime has accomplished in view of the obstacles presented to him far outweighs my own accomplishments." This is a very enjoyable book that presents both a challenge to all young people to overcome difficulties and hope that success is possible by being truly yourself. It tells the story of one man but in reality it is the story of Mexican Americans and other minorities, he does not claim to speak for anyone, but in him all of us can find elements of our own story. It will be especially beneficial to minority pre-med students seeking to enter the medical profession. I loved the book! A proud American of Mexican heritage

The year is 0039 according to the new calendar of the North American superstate. The President, now in his 10th term, has not been seen for years. But he still responds to his email from time to time. Meanwhile, rebellions rage in parts of the country, and new foreign wars are brewing.

In this world full of bureaucrats and sheep, agents and spies, rebels and soldiers, criminals, protesters, and prisoners, most citizens are completely unaware of the power struggle that is unfolding in the nation's capital and on the battlefields in the countryside thanks to the efforts of the U.S. Department of Free Speech. Set in the near future, the events of "Slow Boil Rising" unfold when a recently captured rebel soldier asks a forbidden question - exposing a plot against the President.

Shattered Residue Book Review:

I was born in jail but that was just the beginning. I was going through unbearable things for the young age that I was. Feeling like my legs would give out from under me every step I made. Collecting the thoughts from my head with each side walk I walked, stopping at each street I crossed; because at the cross walk, we're taught from a young age to look both ways, that thought instinctively took over until I was safely across the street. I overcame obstacles that I thought would surely be what defeated me. During that, there was never an "Are you okay?," "Whats going on with you?," "Can I come see you?," "Is there something I can do?," "So I heard one side, whats yours?" While I was screaming in my head, "I AM NOT OKAY! WHAT CAN BE DONE?! IS EVERYONE COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO THIS PAIN OR HAVE I HIDDEN IT TOO WELL?" There was never a benefit of the doubt given, never some one to realize the difference between me doing okay and genuinely feeling okay. Never someone to help out if my environment was not conducive for my growth. No blanket of protection for me to be swaddled in. No way out of the Administration for Children Services (ACS) or the system. I've always had good intentions, even if my actions weren't agreed with, they were always justifiable. I was not selfish with love, time or care BUT that's what you get when you think you can save the world. You only end up more broken.

The Little Things is a more shaded grayscale coloring book to help ease the beginner into the world of grayscale through closeup photographs of flowers, foliage and a few garden dwelling creatures. The darker images are intended to allow exploration of this style while allowing for freer coloring. With practice in this book, the colorist will graduate into lighter grayscale styled investments with confidence. This book is great for both adults and older children. All the photos included in this book were taken by the author in RI, SC or WA.

The Book of Bradley Book Review:

The Book of Bradley is a self-help book for people who don't really need any help but who still like to ask questions. Knowing that helps me out because now I can write whatever pops into my f***ing head. My goal in answering questions was to write something original, lift the skirts of the Muse, get some traction.My unstated goal was to take control of your nervous system using black marks on a white background forcing you to scan your eyes from left to right and on down the page, pausing to enjoy the pictures before turning the page and locking onto the next word and the next and so on until you reach a saturation point where your brain can't function normally, anymore, but has to reconsider its previous limitations, self-imposed or rather imposed outside the bounds of memory by insuperable gods, let's call them that. Now, you have to ask yourself: Do I want to keep reading? What if something happens? I have a lot of years dedicated to building and bolstering my belief system. Someone just lifted the latch on I don't know what and I don't know what's going to happen once that door or portal opens. Holy sh*t. I'd better put this book back and not tell anyone about this. Unless... who are these gods and what have they done to me without my knowledge or consent?Tough questions. Tough questions. I guess there's only one thing to do. I'll let you answer this one. I got the rest.

Chalvaren Rising Book Review:

With the love of Kort, Chalvaren's warrior-prince heir, Mia Ansgar will seize her birthright and become the great dragon-riding wizardess prophesied to free that elven kingdom from her embittered sorceress kin. TO ASCEND TRIUMPHANT Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the Kingdom of Chalvaren for a hiding place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth...and their war. It was the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to be more potent than any wyrm Chalvaren has ever seen, a three-day-old dragonlet Mia must nurture and then ride. And then there is the Dragonstone, an artifact of power nonpareil. Joined, they can tip the scales of battle against the wraith-possessed forces of darkness, of Mia's own embittered kin. Redemption will be offered, the protected will become the protector, and an ancient prophecy will come to fruition, but only righteous love can conquer all.
