Review

"Dan's book provides a cogent set of building blocks for becoming an effective leader. If you master his Art of the Possible, your desired outcome for any action or activity you pursue will not only be possible, but probable." -- Brent Armstrong, EVP, Performance Results Corporation

"The Art of the Possible: Create an Organization with No Limitations provides the reader a proven primer for success. This isn't your ordinary business tome; it is a profound statement of what is necessary to build and sustain a world class organization. Read it, follow it - it works" -- Edward V. Garlich, Jr., Founder/Senior Managing Director, Washington Research Group

"Dan Jacobs' book is a treasure trove of insights, concepts and ideas that every aspiring manager should come to understand, appreciate and practice. The book is laced with lessons and experiences articulated by a remarkable array of corporate, government, sport leaders and even philosophers. The only possible weakness of this terrific text is that the reader cannot enjoy seeing and hearing Dan's persuasive, personable and powerful presentation of the fundamental and essential insights and suggestions presented in this book. It is a must read." --Timothy J. Waters, Partner at McDermott Will & Emery

By Gary F. Taylor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 5, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although it is less often read than such Wells novels as THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, the basic story of THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is very well known through several extremely loose film adaptations. Pendrick, a British scientist, is shipwrecked--and by chance finds himself on an isolated island where Dr. Moreau and his assistant Montgomery are engaged in a series of experiments. They are attempting to transform animals into manlike beings.

Wells, a social reformer, was a very didactic writer, and his novels reflect his thoughts and theories about humanity. Much of Wells writing concerns (either directly or covertly) social class, but while this exists in MOREAU it is less the basic theme than an undercurrent. At core, the novel concerns the then-newly advanced theory of natural selection--and then works to relate how that theory impacts man's concept of God. Wells often touched upon this, and in several novels he broaches the thought that if mankind evolved "up" it might just as easily evolve "down," but nowhere in his work is this line of thought more clearly and specifically seen than here.

At times Wells' determination to teach his reader can overwhelm; at times it can become so subtle that it is nothing short of absolutely obscure. But in THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, Wells achieves a perfect balance of the two extremes, even going so far as to balance the characters in such a way that not even the narrator emerges as entirely sympathetic. It is a remarkable achievement, and in this sense I consider MOREAU possibly the best of Wells work: the novel is as interesting for the story it tells as it is for still very relevant themes it considers.

This review is for the Dover Thrift Edition of THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU.

The price is certainly attractive for this edition of H.G. Wells' classic short novel (just $2). However, you should be aware that this edition is missing the Introduction. Someone at Dover made a big mistake. The Introduction is part of the novel and it contains important information.

However, I'm guessing someone at Dover saw the Introduction ends with the name "Charles Edward Prendick" (as author of the introduction) and decided this wasn't written by H.G. Wells so it's expendable in a bare-bones edition. Not so fast. The introduction was indeed written by Wells. It's in the first person, with Charles Edward Prendick as the "I". Then for the remainder of the novel, Charles' uncle Edward is the narrator and central character.

Big mistake, Dover. This is supposedly an "unabridged" edition. However, the first two pages (the introduction) are missing. I did a quick search on Amazon of other editions of this novel, and all listings that have Amazon's LOOK INSIDE! feature include the introduction.

Wells novel: 5 stars, absolutely great!
Dover Thrift Edition: 1 star, unacceptable.

Avoid this edition.

By A Customer on November 27, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Admittedly, Anne's House of Dreams IS a pretty good book. Anne and Gilbert finally get married (FINALLY, after we've been waiting for the last four books) and go to Four Winds Harbor to spread their wings. They live in a cute little "house o' dreams" (hence the title) and meet all sorts of new people: Captian Jim, Miss Cornelia, Leslie, Owen Ford, etc., who are all, by the way, wonderfully characterized, as is L.M. Montgomery's signature.
The only real problems that I had with this book was that it had lost the flair of the other "Anne" books, and wasn't quite ready for the mischevious tinge that the following books, which are mainly about the Blythe children, bring with them. Like I said, kind of a bridge between the real Anne books and the books about her kids. I also missed the presence of the Avonlea people like Marilla, Diana, Mrs. Lynde, and so on. But for the most part, it met my expectations. You've got to remember that it had some pretty high standards that it's predecessors had set to live up to.

This book is less known than Wells' other works like The War of the Worlds and The Time Machine, but in many ways it exceeds these other, more popular works. This novel is a story essentially about the nature of humanity. What is it that makes us people? What, exactly, separates man from the beasts? Wells' insidious Dr. Moreau is the perfect character to explore these questions as he has no conscience. As you read this book you find yourself identifying more with the "beasts" than with the Dr. or his assistant; and you find yourself wondering whether or not the noble beasts are in fact more human than the human characters. This work is decades before its' time; as today genetic research and animal rights are garnering more attention and headlines. I believe Wells was somehow able to see these issues decades ago when he wrote this story; and it remains one of the most salient writings on the topic to date. I heartily endorse this book for any fan of science fiction. Enjoy!

I return to this book in the "Anne" series perhaps more than any of the others. Each re-reading uncovers a new delight. This book encompasses the first years of Anne and Gilbert's married life, spent in the seaside town of Four Winds Harbor.
I can't decide which character in the book is my favorite. Maybe it's Cornelia Bryant, outspoken but good hearted, whose rants about the uselessness of men accompany her ever-present needlework. Or it could be the beautiful, heartbroken Leslie Moore, whose natural intelligence and vivacity have been dulled, but not extinguished, by a series of tragic life events. Or maybe it's gentle Captain Jim, who captivates the Blythes with his tales of world travel, sea adventures, and the lost love of his life.
The book contains an interwoven medley of incidents large and small, joyous and sad, culminating in the revelation of a spectacular truth that has a powerful impact on the major characters.
