Review Date: 12/6/2006


"The newest collection of words - both poetry and prose - by the man that more than any other contemporary writer has given new meaning and definition to the word ALONE.
Tender, gentle, warm, intelligent, biting, sensuous without being pornographic ...More than anything ALONE illustrated why Rod McKuen is the best-loved, best-selling poet of this age."


The American Reader: Words That Moved a Nation
Review Date: 2/6/2007


"...a stirring and memorable anthology that captures the many facets of American culture and history in words and images.
The 200 poems, speeches, songs, essays, letters, and documents were chosen both for their readability and for their significance.
They reflect the part that all Americans - black and white, female and male, native-born and immigrant, Hispanic, Asian and native American, poor and wealthy - have played in creating the nation's character."
I would think would be a valuable tool for someone who homeschools.

Review Date: 11/15/2006


"Reports had reached State Department diplomats of how one morning Hillary Clinton had burst into the room while members of President Clinton's security team were briefing him about Saddam Hussein.
Throwing a newspaper at her husband that contained some new humiliating revelation about his sexual adventures with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the first lady slapped him across the face. After a barrage of insults, she stormed out, threatening to end their sham marriage...
By 15 December, 1998, Bill Clinton's critics in the House of Representatives were moving to impeach him. He had a diversion planned. The President would soon launch air strikes against Iraq, in what would become known as Operation Desert Fox. For Clinton, the timing couldn't have been more fortuitous...
On the morning of 16 December, Clinton locked in the orders to fire on Iraq at 3:10 that same afternoon...
What nobody outside the Oval Office knew that morning was that the only real target was the Iraqi desert fox himself. This operation was all about killing Saddam."
