Quick Tips

The Hobbit- First Edition
Much better than the movie versions, Tolkein actually conceived the idea and wrote much of it in letter form sent from the front lines of battle during World War I

A must read for all true sci fi fans, and fans of the movie, although I found it hard to get started
posted a Quick Tip about Robinson Crusoe. July 09, 2010
Robinson Crusoe
Old time classic, much better in depth and vision than the modern books, or movies such as "Castaway"
posted a Quick Tip about Herzog. July 09, 2010
Herzog
A great book for anyone who loves Chicago, and Herzog is part of that lost generation, along with Sinclair, Updike, and other great writers whose prose is complex and uplifting.

All time classic for both adults and children, along with Call of the Wild and other London books. White Fang is for those who love the wilderness, the alpine climates, adventure, large dogs, and the …

The 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the
Critically important and a duty to read, but woefully inadequate as an explanation of the event. Also, many of the authors have been linked to special interests that cast doubt on their objectivity or …

86F8E0223E3C95C827FFA83DCF85809

The Merck Manual for Medical Information (Home Edition)
I have this as an essential home reference. It is not a basic handbook, but will drive you to understand more of the basics of nursing and medical care on a detailed professional level.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
I never found this book particularly enlightening or helpful, despite its motivational title. I may try another re-read to see if it will help me conform to employment in the mega corporate culture.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know I created a book entry for "Confessions of a Shopaholic." I was hoping you wouldn't mind moving your Quick Tip to that topic and deleting the one you wrote under the film topic. I'm removing the film item from the community, and I didn't want to lose your QT. I think there is a way to switch the review to a different topic, so you might want to try that first if you want to avoid copying, pasting, and deleting. It should be under the edit features of the review. Let me know if I can help you out! Here's the link for the new data point: http://www.lunch.com/cafelibri/reviews/Confe...c_book_-74-1487800.html
