"The Grand Dame of them all" - By Ex-Buyer (Washington, D.C. United States)
The two most magnificent department stores buildings were Wanamaker's and Field's. Both were designed by the same architect and were extremely similar in feel. Yet without a doubt, of all major US department stores, Marshall Field's was the Grand Dame of them all. It not only was a beautiful; structure, but its' Buyers, its' merchandising, and its' service were on a level next to none. Even when it was purchased by Dayton Hudson Corporation, they still retained many of the trademarks which made this store unique. May Company started the downward spiral and Macy*s was the final knife. However, given the name change to Macy*s, upon a recent trip to Chicago, Macy*s has done an excellent job continue the final restoration of this magnificent landmark building. This book does an excellent job in its history of the store from its' beginnings to the ... full review
"great safety mirror-" - By miss kitty (ventura CA)
I really loved this mirror. saved my new car from getting hit in the rear backing out from my tight driveway onto PCH in Malibu CA. A tip for you all who purchase one these expensive safety mirrors- you need to put them up high or some tweeker will rip you off. I am purchasing a new one but having it hung 4 ft higher than last one.
This is one of the strange and interesting facts found in this book. The author spent six years meticulously researching and writing this book about "the historic creek that Chicago built". The book does many things for Chicago's history: it gives a great perspective of the political realities of managing one of the main forms of transportation in the city's early growth; it describes the economice of developing the land along the river (and its many courses); and it shows the part the river played in the lives of everyone along its banks. The drawings and maps in the book are carefully chosen to give the reader an accurate visual picture of the times. My favorite is the one on pg. 96 where men are lifting an entire hotel to accomodate the installation of sewers in ... full review

"One of many great Tchaikovsky sets (with a war story)" - By Classical Lawyer (Columbia, SC)
I prefer this to the Karajan, and would rank it with the Haitink set. The Solti recordings are special.
One comment on the 2nd Symphony. The Chicago Symphony and Abbado came to my home town in the mid-1980s. At the time the only facility large enough to hold the expected crowd was the basketball arena of the university. The Chicago Symphony and Abbado were playing in basically a very large gym. They had acoustic shells and the like, but still. My date and I had great seats. The program started with a Rossini overture (La Gazza Ladra), then the Stravinsky Firebird Suite. It was great. Well, after intermission was the Tchaikovsky 2nd. I knew the 3-5, but had never heard this. To tell you the truth, I didn't much like it. I didn't think it held together particularly well. And in the development of the 4th movement old Peter ... full review
This product is a taste of home. Brings me back to when I grew up and lived in Chicago for my first 27 years of life. Its great tasting and you can use it with anything even as an extra ingredient in your Suugo.
I am a H U G E fan of the RCA Living Stereo Series. I had all the CD's (I wish I had the LP's) of the series, beginning with the 1993 discs through the releases remastered with the 20 bit UV22 Super CD encoding and the Weiss 24/96 technologies. I also have had the JVC XRCD's that have been released featuring RCA Living Stereo recordings. I mention this merely to establish credibility.
The clarity on this Reiner "Pictures at an Exhibition" is staggering (and I am just talking about the CD layer of this hybrid for now! I'll get into the SACD layer a bit later.) I did A/B comparisons with the JVC XRCD2 and the CD layer of this recording and was surprised at what I did not hear on the JVC, which costs a cool $30 per disc. The JVC XRCD2 is more veiled and does ... full review
Any recognition, praise or accolade directed at William Fitzsimmons is more than deserved, and probably not nearly enough. The soul-bearing, heart-pouring nature of the lyrics and emotion with which Mr. Fitzsimmons delivers them is nothing short of breathtaking. Every album he's released has been a building progression toward perfection, and his first CD was a masterpiece in itself. Do yourself a favor; buy this CD and the others in his collection of releases, go see him play live (I prefer the intimate setting of him and his guitar), then be amazed. William Fitzsimmons is a wonderful talent.
The shoes are light, flexible and fit well. Unless it is the placebo affect, my knees do feel better when I wear them. I bought some with springs in the heels and they are heavy, clunky and feel no different than any other shoes.
"Good Antidote for "Just the Facts" Writing" - By John M. Ford (near DC, MD USA)
We all respect scientists--even budding science students--for their commitment to accuracy and objectivity. Sometimes our strengths are also our weaknesses. Beginning scientists can naively believe that their writing only needs to report the facts, that anything further is bias, sophistry or even dishonesty. This book lays out the path to a better writing style. Readers will learn how to arrange and present their facts and evidence as coherent arguments. As a result, they will better serve their own readers.
The table of contents, outlined below, shows that the authors cover more than putting fingers to keyboard. Introductory chapters discuss the perspective and information needs of readers and how to connect with them. The authors address development of one's own authentic authorial "voice"--a topic often neglected in books about research writing. The next four chapters teach us how to conceptualize a research ... full review
