The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal
Review Date: 2/19/2010


Interesting story that could have been written in a feature length magazine article and included all the important information. I felt the author stretched his material to make it book length. There was a lot of conjecture of what might have been going through someone's mind plus lengthy detailing of scenery, settings, body types, etc that seemed like the writer was using it just for filler. Easy to read in a few hours time, I found myself skipping ahead to find out the next essential piece of the story.

To fully understand the humor of this book, you have to be familiar with the references he makes. This book was written in the early 90s, so you need to be familiar with the first George Bush and Dan Qualye, as well as the headlines from that time.

The short story is a literary form with immense versatility. The literary richness of the genre is reflected in the breadth and versatility of the writing chosen for this volume. Here is a selection from the work of some of the best nineteenth and early twentieth century American aurhors, including such consummate storytellers as Mark Twain and Henry James, as well as their distinguished but lesser-known compatriots.


Another Place at the Table: A Story of Shattered Childhoods Redeemed by Love
Review Date: 10/22/2007
Helpful Score: 2


As a child-welfare worker some 30 years ago, I wondered if things had changed much since my days of working in foster care and protective services to children. The truth is...not much, just updated technology.

I placed many children in foster care,many times on an emergency basis, and this book helped me understand what the experience was like for the people into whose homes I placed children.

Very interesting reading of a story that needs to be told.

Jezebel and Delilah have plenty to teach contemporary Christian women, according to Bad Girls of the Bible and What We Can Learn from Them. In this self-help book, Liz Curtis Higgs tells fictionalized, contemporary stories based on the lives of biblical characters including Eve, Potiphar's Wife, and the Woman at the Well. In verse-by-verse commentary, Higgs summarizes each life's lessons and provides a list of questions for personal consideration or group discussion.

I just finished a women's Bible study utilizing this book and it was very enjoyable and I learned a lot about the women featured.
