Challenged since birth, how this writer carved out a place for himself, aided by, and a part of, the Disability Movement.

Amy tells her story with much passion and good humor. She makes her journey seem magical while never undercutting the effort and confidence it took to achieve her accomplishments. Both inspiring and encouraging.

5.0 out of 5 stars A revelation, April 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Deeds, not words. Works, not faith. Mother Teresa's reputation does not stand up to rational scrutiny. A thought-provoking short read.

5.0 out of 5 stars It has inspired me., April 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An extraordinary approach to a common problem. We have a small apartment and a passion for books and music. Electronic versions have helped us greatly in having more room. Now here is the KonMari technique to help me finish the job! Will update when I'm done.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! The most excellent deconstruction, April 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a long time fan of these reviews online, I'm thrilled that they have been collected in book form. The author knows and loves his subject, and with much humor and wonderful explanations he dissects what the Left Behind books get wrong about... Everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply honest, April 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sometimes our feelings make us sick. And sometimes we are sick and this gives us feelings. This book is about the second kind.

It's terrible to know something is wrong. It's even worse when they admit something is wrong and they still can't figure it out. But no matter what occurs, this book is about how we keep going.

I liked it a lot.


The True History of the Elephant Man: The Definitive Account of the Tragic and Extraordinary Life of Joseph Carey Merrick
The True History of the Elephant Man: The Definitive Account of the Tragic and Extraordinary Life of Joseph Carey Merrick
Price: $8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed, insightful, poignant account, February 21, 2015
This is an amazing book and the research is astounding. This is the only account that delineates Mr. Merrick's experience with Victorian workhouses, for instance. It was an important part of his life's story because it was so miserable it drove him to exhibit himself for survival.

Not only is this book the most sensitive and comprehensive account I've ever read of Mr. Merrick's life, the writer brings many aspects of Victorian times to life as he describes the impact these encounters had on Mr. Merrick.

It is also beautifully written, yet does not take liberties to create anything fictional or overly speculative. It's a wonderful work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic... if you do it right., January 10, 2015
I noticed a number of reviews complaining that it "couldn't hold a charge" or ran down too fast. Such reviews are from people who DID NOT follow the simple instructions.

1. Let it charge for 24 HOURS the first time.

2. If you are not brushing your teeth, it sits in its recharging stand. IT LIVES THERE, okay?

3. You can toss the toothbrush itself in a bag for a weekend trip, but for anything longer it needs to have its house. The charging stand is very small. Bring it.

And that's it! That's all there is to it. I've had it over a year, and prior to that I'd had the Spinbrush you put batteries in. I used rechargeables so that part was okay, but getting the compartment open required pliers and upper body strength and drove me nuts. This is a massive upgrade, and my dental team is thrilled with the results.

Customers, seen with the anthropologist eye and a fine-tuned sense of humor. A must read for both the curious and the long-suffering customer service workers.

Dragon Dictate: Fast Track to Prolific Writing on Your Mac
Price: $3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to dictation, December 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was frankly hoping for more. I did learn some helpful hints and felt supported in my decision to try dictation in my writing process. I had been hoping for more process. A few examples of integrating dictation and typing for instance.

However, this information is useful and presented well. A very quick read.
