For the second grade teacher, this helps you to plan, organize, assess and succeed. It gives a good overview of second grade in all subject areas, including technology and visual arts, and discusses the kind of child a second grader is. 99 pages.
It is great to compare the companies of today with the companies portrayed in Birnbaum's book. She divides the businesses into cities, so it is easy to look for your dream company where you live. Thoroughly enjoyable, even while working for a non-profit (which I do.)
An intelligent discussion of marriage and all the events that surround it in today's modern age. The author looks at this part of a couple's lives with a critical view. She explains the history of such marriage ideals as the wedding dress and the idea of marriage itself. I read this before I got married, and it validated some of my notions on parts of the marriage process.
I really enjoyed the book. Sure it's long, but it's rich in details and atmosphere, very in-depth about the history of Dracula, adding up to a mysterious read. If an editor could have omitted parts, I believe it could read like "The DaVinci Code" for Dracula.
A beautifully written story involving an Italian family in the 1950s, combining religion and mysticism. I enjoyed the movie, but not as much as the book, though it's always good to see Tracey Ullman showing her acting abilities.
As soon as you get this book, and mark it receive on PBS, repost it. You read correctly--repost it. That's because by the time the next person accepts it from their Wish List, you will be finished. That's how short this book is. Oh, and not very good.
I supported and put myself through college waiting tables. The restaurant business is not for the faint of heart, and Bourdain describes it well. It is a rough life, and not easy even for servers. I take pride in my waitressing days--I was damn good, and made good money. A great server is priceless. Have a bad server and you'll see what I mean.
I loved reading this. It brought me back to those days. And whatever he says about the sex, drugs, and drinking are all true.
I laugh at friends and colleagues who are afraid to eat certain foods, or who wrinkle their noses at items left out of the fridge for a couple of hours--they should see what goes on in restaurant kitchens!
