5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Gone Girl, October 5, 2014
This review is from: The Perfect Ghost (Kindle Edition)
What a clever book with an unexpected ending that is so much better than Gone Girl! This is the book they should make into a movie. Em Moore, the protagonist, is the surviving member of a ghost writing duo. When we first meet Em, her writing partner, Teddy, has died tragically in a car accident. She is trying to carry on without him although she is timid and agoraphobic They were midway though an autobiographical account of Garrett Malcolm, a famous actor and director. Garrett is in the midst of producing Hamlet on his Cape Cod estate and Em joins him there to finish the book. Garrett doubts her ability but she wins him over with her literary knowledge. Meanwhile, questions are raised about Teddy's accident and a missing interview tape.
As a former drama teacher, Linda Barnes knows her Hamlet. Her characters discuss the ghost who appears to Hamlet and sets the tragedy in motion. And the reader begins to wonder: Who is the Ghost and what has the Ghost done?

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent history of MMA, December 2, 2008
Jonathan Snowden is a talented author whose genuine love of MMA history comes across on every page. Snowden's extensive knowledge of the sport will illuminate any reader with an interest in this growing phenomenon.
Exhaustively researched, Total MMA covers the wide (and much longer than you may know) history of the sport, bringing us up to the present day. He presents a fair and not always pretty portrayal of the inner workings of the business, casting a sometimes unsettling but always illuminating portrayal of the athletes, promoters, and other bizarre hangers on of the mixed martial arts world.
In addition, this book will make you fall in love with Kazushi Sakuraba all over again. Whether you're a MMA diehard or a TUF noob, this book will educate you to facets of the sport you may never have even known existed. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection in printed form., July 11, 2005
The first thing you notice when you read this book was the elegant prose. Instantly, you are reminded of truly great authors like Garcia Marquez, Hemingway, and Flannery O'Connor. This book is truly the stock market's Citizen Kane.

Once you move beyond the lush and textured yet subtle and graceful writing style, you find a veritable treasure trove of helpful hints. I find it rather impolitic to discuss how my portfolio is faring but I will mention that the information I gleaned from the Bernsteins was nothing short of revolutionary.

This book is a true delight and I can't recommend it enough. It makes a great gift, also, for dads and grads.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Book! Everyone must read!, July 11, 2005
Truthfully, Willard Mies has finally hatched his golden egg. No ugly duckling was born forth from it, however, but rather a shining and glorious phoenix.

If you've ever wondered aloud about the statistics and trivia of the pulp and paper industry of North America in 1999, you'd be a fool to pass up this book. And if you haven't (and shame on you if that is the case), this book will instantly serve to inform and delight you.
