5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent translation, June 2, 2013

This review is from: Doctor Zhivago (Hardcover)
So much better than the movie, and the translation picked up the nuances of the language. Always an excellent book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit extreme, June 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A very interesting book, though the recipes call for some ingredients that may be very hard to find, depending on where you live. They're a bit complicated, too. I'm a very experienced cook, but I have a marked preference for simple but out-of-this-world delicious. The recipes in this book might require a bit more effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly!, June 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love the assortment of recipes, as well as the "helps" and glossary of terms. It's also well indexed, which is very important to me. The first recipe I tried on the day I received it was the venison schnitzel. So simple and so good. Can't wait to test many more of the recipes.

It doesn't get any worse. Bitter, burned tasting. Really horrible. If you want to get off caffeine, don't try this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blech!, June 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have long enjoyed a good cup of coffee, so when I decided to give up the habit some folks told me how wonderful this stuff is. I'd tried another coffee substitute from Germany (Kaffe), and it was do-able. This stuff is not do-able. I kept trying, thinking I'd acquire a taste for it. That just wasn't to be. Happy to say, I'm back to enjoying a good cuppa in the morning--of excellent Kaua'i coffee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish it was on DVD, January 9, 2012
I began using this program when I was in my late 30s and dealing with back, hip, and knee problems. It's a wonderful, gentle workout. Best of all, it lacks that hyper approach that pushes a person to do too much. This workout eased my aches and pains while strengthening my muscles and giving me an overall sense of well-being. Now, I'm in my mid-50s, and it's still the best workout I've found. I just wish it would be re-released on DVD. I have other friends who are looking for an age-appropriate, gentle workout. I'd love to be able to give them this program as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spell-binding!, April 7, 2004
What a fun and exciting series! I'm a grandma, and the books kept me spell-bound. I particularly appreciate the fact that the characters are rather atypical, and that the stories offer some fresh new ways to consider or present social and moral values--like acceptance and courtesy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ethics with heart and soul, September 3, 2002
Larry Rasmussen has done an excellent job of 'connecting the dots' in his analysis of the current state of Earth community. His analysis is thorough and holistic, as are the solutions he proposes, howbeit tentatively. His passion for Earth community comes through loud and clear, and one can hardly help but be moved by the depth of his compassion. Here we truly have a proposal for an ethic with heart and soul It is not a fast, easy read, however, and at times the text runs a bit dense. Overall, however, it is one of the finest books on Earth ethics--or ethics in general--that I have read.
