  Book Review: Amazing! Rating: 5 stars Richard Feynman always amazes me. This book is my first experience with QED. when I was just one high school student, I read it during a boring holiday, I was attracted by it at once! the book tells you what is physics, tells you how beautiful physics is! I think everyone who have fundamental physics knowledge can understand QED from the book,. someone usually say S.Hawking’s” a b...

  Book Review: Read it Rating: 5 stars This book is great! There isn’t much to say here that hasn’t already been said. If you have a desire to learn about quantum mechanics but you lack a science background, this book simply cannot be beat. This is the only book that gives you the real deal. A Brief History, Elegant Universe, etc. all gloss over the topic. But don’t fool yourself. Even though Feynman is a great te...

Book Review:  Why Does He Do That Rating: 5 stars Great book! Every woman, every teenage young girl, every teenage boy should read this book. This book is so helpful in understanding the victim role. If women can’t recognize that they themselves are victims then they can’t teach their daughters to not be victims. This book should be required reading for every high school student that wants to graduate. Book Review: No-nonse...

It brought back intense feelings of fondness and I decided to buy this set. I just finished Over Sea and Under Stone–one of the two books I missed in my younger years–and I was reminded of just how brilliant Susan Cooper is as a writer. It is...

Book Review: excellent for young readers Rating: 5 stars I love this series, I have since I first discovered it almost 10 years ago. I think that if more parents knew about this series and the effect that it can have on even reluctant readers that it would shortly become almost as popular as a certain other young man dealing with magical forces that we’ve all come to know. Book Review: One of the Best Rating: 5 stars Easily ranks ...

Book Reviews of A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction
My Blog / January 5, 2017

I am designing/building my own home and this book helped me adjust my plans until I had something that suits me perfectly instead of something “saleable.” Funny thing, everyone who sees the plan and my initial start is enchanted…. Forget building houses and start building homes. I also read A Timeless Way of Building, which is a nice introduction to this one. Book Review: A Pattern Language Rating: 5 stars This is an e...
