We Escaped A Family's Flight from Holland During WWII
We Escaped A Family's Flight from Holland During WWII
by Alexander H ter Weele
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $28.95
23 used & new from $24.96

5.0 out of 5 stars An untold story, May 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We Escaped was a fascinating book written by a Dutch reservist who escaped Belgium and made a perilous journey with his pregnant American wife and two young children through Germany to the U.S. and then to Dutch owned islands in the Caribbean to help guard oil reserves there. The story is told in chapters organized by the remembrances of the parents and the children. The characters were worth rooting for and the information about German activity in the Caribbean was all new to me. Pictures, if available, would have been a nice addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kerry Hannon’s latest book Love Your Job is not long, April 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Kerry Hannon’s latest book Love Your Job is not long, but it includes an amazing amount of information and good advice. This well organized book takes the reader from ways to decrease job dissatisfaction through making yourself a more desirable employee to asking for a raise or a promotion. Besides well-chosen quotes and examples, some from the author’s personal experience, each chapter has frequent lists of organizations offering additional material, current statistics, a summary of the chapter, and a personal list of things to do. A large bibliography and an index make the book even more useful and the author’s conversational style makes it a pleasure to read. If you are a dog lover, you will enjoy her introduction in which she credits her dog for exemplifying beneficial work habits for us all. Although endorsed by AARP, the information is appropriate for anyone in the work force, particularly those who are feeling a little jaded.


A Survivor's Guide to Washington: How to Succeed Without Losing Your Soul
A Survivor's Guide to Washington: How to Succeed Without Losing Your Soul
by T. E. S. Clarke
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $15.95
20 used & new from $9.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be at the top of your list, September 17, 2014
This is an amazing little book that covers a lot of ground. Its title could probably have been expanded to "A Survivor's guide to Washington and anywhere else that has a bureaucracy". The book is organized into broad chapters with a question and answer format. While the author has generally answered the questions from her own broad experience, she occasionally adds commentary from other experts. I found the information thoughtful, ethical, humorous, and useful. This is the first book I have ever purchased in multiple copies for the pleasure of giving it to friends.


Where the Heck Can I Get a Beer?
Where the Heck Can I Get a Beer?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for horse show husbands, fathers, and boyfriends, April 10, 2013
This is a brief and humorous handbook for males who are obligated to attend the horse shows of the females in their lives. It is full of great illustrations and useful information. It includes the meanings of words involved with horse showing, and a few ideas about how to sound like an expert despite a basic lack of knowledge. The last two pages of the book are devoted to dealing with the sometimes knotty problem of the beer supply. Highly recommended.
