I've been a fan of the Uncanny Soup Company for years because of their great soups and great service. When I heard they had a book out, I ordered it immediately. It was really neat to read about how the company got started and to hear the trials and tribulations of a small business owner, but it is even better to have some of the recipies of soups that have kept me coming back for more year after year! Thank you Jay for the great soups and the funny stories! Now I'll be waiting for part two of the book to see how you make some of your curry soups and my all time favorite, Chicken Curry Sandwich! To die for! Mmmmmmm, Curry!...Read more
I'd been searching for a good cross trainer shoe for a while and decided to try asics because I have a few pairs of their running shoes, and I am so happy that I did. Most other cross trainers I've had would slip a lot and I could never get the laces tight enough to hold my foot in place inside the shoe. There's no problem with that with the asics gel express cross trainers. I feel like these shoes were made for my feet!...Read more
Although I really love this story, I think the approach could have been better. The book revealed more information about McCandless and his adventures than the movie by the same title, but the author felt it necessary to include his own personal adventures in the book as well almost advertising his previous book "Into Thin Air." The book became redundant towards the end, but over all it was very informative and quenches the thirst for adventure in the outdoor junkie in us all. Four stars for content, but three for approach....Read more
This book was not only interesting and entertaining, it was also very funny and educational. I've taken Intro to Macro and Intro to Micro Economics and I retained very little from both of those classes. It wasn't until I read "Naked Economics" that I finally grasped the concepts of economics and how they relate to the average person. I would definitely recommend it!...Read more
I'll sum this book up for you in one sentence, "put 10% of everything you make in savings and then make your money earn you more money that doesn't require additional effort from you." The rest of the book just repeats this moto. The book does supply a fun story about Babylon, but if you are strictly interested in financial advice, the book doesn't go beyond the basics of saving. A good read for most Americans who have been entranced by credit card companies and over look the piggy bank, but for the financially responsible, I wouldn't recommend unless you want a good story about Babylon....Read more
I thought this book had a few tid-bits of good information, but it was mostly a story that was a little too drawn out. She made some solid points and gave interesting examples of what she learned while observing animal training and it was interesting how she applied it, but the story line behind the information was like a broken record. She stated one or two examples and kept referring back to them over and over. I think she could have knocked of a few pages and still had enough information to be informative. And if I had to hear another reference to throwing a dolphin a fish while talking about her husband, I think I would never be able to go to the zoo again. It's not a bad book if you pick it up in the library and perhaps borrow it for a leisurely Sunday afternoon, but I don't think I would recommend buying it for your collection. A nice read, but not a must have....Read more
I was very impressed with this book. It is extremely informative. It has a small biography in the beginning, demostrations of exercises, and sample workouts for all levels. Why look anywhere but the top for advice on a subject, and it doesn't get any further up then Arnold for weight lifting. I am just starting on his Encyclopedia for Body Building book right now. A definite must have!...Read more
