5.0 von 5 Sternen Nietzsches Masterpiece!, 1. August 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Taschenbuch)
Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, Walter Kaufmann (Translator) is an extremely thought provoking novel; In this novel the author, i.e., Nietzsche, asks the reader to cats of the old ideas and ideals. By doing so, the reader, is ready to go under and thus experience the world of the ubermensch (spelling). My favorite part in the entire book is when Zarathustra encounters the tightrope walker. However, the chapters on the "all knowing" scholars and the finely written chapter on priests are also mind bending in their intricacy.


The Consolation of Philosophy (Penguin Classics)
The Consolation of Philosophy (Penguin Classics)
von Ancius Boethius
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 10,90

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book on how to overcome despair!, 1. August 2000
The Consolation of Philosophy (Penguin Classics) by Boethius, Victor Watts (Translator) is one of the last novels from the antiquity and in a way an introduction to early Christian thought. The idea that plays the most central part in the novel is not theology but the concept that a man/woman can overcome difficult circumstances if they are in the right mindset to do so. Even if I do not entirely agree that this can always work; I do find his courage, whilst he was facing a certain death, to be both admirable and courageous.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit to basic!, 20. Juni 2000
Weddings For Dummies® assumes that people do not know anything at all when it comes to weddings. Personally, I found that most of the tips were very usefull, however, some of the advice was a bit silly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A haunting tale!, 20. Juni 2000
The picture of Dorian Gray is a very macabre tale, about a man whom sells his soul, so that he will stay young and the picture of himself grow old. Wilde's character development is astounding and his writing style is brilliant. Definitely, a classic work, that ought to be read by anyone remotely interested in good literature.


Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary, Second Edition
Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary, Second Edition
von Rh Value Publishing
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply wonderful!, 10. Juni 2000
Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language is an indispensable tool since it helps in many different areas, i.e., with the spelling of a word, the history of a word to name a few examples. I have always wanted an unabridged dictionary and to imagine that I only needed to spend $20.


Introduction to Reference Work
Introduction to Reference Work
von William A. Katz
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 39,39

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely helpful!, 9. Juni 2000
I found Katz Introduction to Reference Work, Volume II to be extremely helpful when it came to the finer points of reference work; Especially well written was the chapter concerning the reference interview. Katz has an amazing ability to turn mundane subjects such as the chapter on the rules of the search and turn this easily boring subject into something quite enjoyable. The chapters are very well written and he, Mr. Katz, has an amazing ability to write so that the novice librarian, i.e., student can understand the main points of each chapter. Thank you, Mr. Katz for writing an indispensable book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The bible of Reference Work, 9. Juni 2000
William Katz's Introduction to Reference Work : Basic Information Sources (Introduction to Reference Work : Basic Information Sources, 7th Ed) can be justly called the bible of reference work. In this book, Mr. Katz has been able to introduce the novice librarian to different sources and tools in the field of reference work. The chapters are very well written and the examples are extremely helpful.


The Divine Comedy: Purgatory
The Divine Comedy: Purgatory
von Dante Alighieri
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 9,40

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very profound novel!, 7. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Divine Comedy: Purgatory (Taschenbuch)
Contrary to the previous reviewer, I think that part II of The Divine Comedy is very thought provoking and I would definitely never say that it lacks the fervor of the Inferno. I especially liked the fact that the translation by Sayers is very professional and not as hard to read as I anticipated. I can not wait to read part III.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit cumbersome!, 4. Juni 2000
Even though Great Destinations: Charleston, Savannah & Coastal Islands Book : A Complete Guide (3rd Ed)is an excellent guide book filled with usefull information; it does have definite drawbacks. For instance, the book is way to big and therefore one is not able to place it in ones pocket which made it not so practical.
