This book appealed to our 5th- 7th graders that enjoyed those graphics novels like BONE. I bought this for our elementary school and it is a huge hit. It has a series of pages and then pages with words. It is so well done and is such a good value at overstocks.

The book was as expected, helpful in my job and I liked the accompanying cd to print personalized social stories instead of copying them..

I own the first printing of this book and have used it alot over the years. This edition is paperback and a larger format so it will stay open while you work. It has updated information and new recipes as well. I like the background information on each recipe, it is entertaining as well as a great workbook.

As a social work student this was really the one book that completely changed the way I understood "mental illness." This book is essential to anyone in the field, old and new-- it will revolutionize the way you think. The NY Times review likens its importance to that of Freud and I definitely agree, though Herman's theories make a heck of a lot more sense.

This short novel (and the movie Precious upon which it is based) is not for the faint at heart nor the naive! PUSH portrays the impact that poverty can and does have on the lives of countless thousands of young girls. It is intentionally difficult and will make almost any reader terribly uncomfortable--which we should be as we enjoy our perfectly ordered, middle-class lives that we THINK are everyone else's reality. Our book club debated several issues raised in the book including the fact that multiple systems FAILED the main character. Not just government systems but the system that helped most of us make it (neighbors, church, social and civic organizations, schools, etc.) all FAILED. More importantly, it opened the door for some honest conversation about how often abuse happens in households that are NOT impoverished! Underneath it all, the notion that poor, uneducated folk can survive the most unspeakable conditions and change their lives via education, literacy and self-determination, should inspire every reader. Our book club purchased copies via Overstock--brand new, excellent condition at a great price. The real value was reading, reviewing and forcing ourselves to confront realities that we often overlook or try to deny. A must read--even if it IS difficult!

I bought the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment for my mixer and saw this book came up as other products I my like. I decided it would be a good companion for my new attachment. I'm glad I got it. It has good background info and is in a fun format. I've only made a few of the recipes so far. They came out delicious and I'm sure the others will too. Get this if you have the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment, you won't regret it! This would make a good gift to give if you were giving someone the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment.

This book is a must read for anyone who is in a relationship! The information is practical, useful, and applicable to the real world. The author does not lecture or talk down to the reader, rather she encourages and guides in an easy to read format. There are practical solutions that can be easily applied to any relationship, with real results. There are also quizzes and exercises spread throughout the book that can really help you practice what you're learning. I'm about to get married, and I am SO GLAD I found this book! I have recommended it to EVERY one of my friends.

I loved this book. It's a collection of short stories, so it's a very easy read. Most of the stories leave you with goosebumps down to your toes, knowing that God and his angels are around us all the time, whether we know it or not. I enjoyed this book so much, I bought one for my mom, sister, and nieces, and gave them as gifts. I also have the rest of Joan's books in my collection, and re-read them when I feel a little down. It's a great pick-me up, in a very quick, easy to read format.

This book is one of my favorites. As a school teacher, this book is shared with the 5th grade class as they are moving on to middle school. This book is also given to staff who are leaving the school as a way to wish them luck with their new adventures in the future. This book is a great teaching tool for adults and children to teach them to be individuals and that the possibilities are endless when it comes to the road of life.

The author takes the reader on the journey from Central America to Texas and risks her own life so that we can know a little about the trek that so many children, teens and adults make (and make repeatedly until they either die or make it to the USA) every day. Worth reading to try to gain an understanding of the violence that plagues these countries and these journeys.

I'm not one to collect a huge library, but this book is one I'm happy to own. I've also purchased at least 2 copies to gift to friends. It's a very entertaining and informative read, laid out very cleverly into the different sections of types of meals - from the "low" of fast foods to the extreme of "grow/kill" your own. It would be hard to imagine anyone NOT enjoying this book.

We are what we eat, and that is a scary thought based on the description of our "food chain" in this book. The book follows the growth of heavily subsidized corn (up to 40% of the cost of production) that is fed massive amounts of chemical fertilizer derived from oil (again, up to 40% of the cost of production). The corn then is fed to cows in confined, unsanitary areas. Since cows are not adapted to eating corn or the unsanitary conditions, they must be fed antibiotics to keep them from dying before slaughter. So why feed them corn if it's not good for them? Because it's cheaper. Why is it cheaper? Because the corn is subsidized, to the tune of $4.6b in 2005 (source: NYT on September 16, 2006). That's about $12-15 of tax dollars from every American. So what to do? Try to find beef from cows that ate grass, probably at a farmers market or a farm.

Purchased this little book for a friend who is about to be a first time grandmother. She loved it and looks forward to reading it to her new grandchild.
Book clubs are a great way to indulge your reading habit while making long-lasting friendships. Furthermore, book clubs serve as an excellent venue for discussing and sharing your thoughts on books. Getting different opinions from a book club discussion can supplement or change your own view of the book and introduce you to new viewpoints or thoughts that you may not have come up with on your own. Anyone can be an integral part of a book club; you don't have to be a literary critic or professor to contribute. It's easy to start a book club; just follow these steps.
