5.0 von 5 Sternen Praise "Bob", 27. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Book of the Subgenius (Taschenbuch)
This book didn't change my life a bit. I already knew that "they" were in control and that "they" held all the cards. The best reason to buy this book is that at least it doesn't lie to you like other books and tell you everything is going to be Ok. Besides "they" know that "they" will get your money somehow so you might as well have a funny book.


365 Tao: Daily Meditations
365 Tao: Daily Meditations
von Ming-Dao Deng
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 12,90

4.0 von 5 Sternen Masterful and well written, 24. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: 365 Tao: Daily Meditations (Taschenbuch)
I picked this up right after reading the Tao of pooh and was very impressed. The book is very well organized and he stays on a subject for several entries in a row but has the skills to switch to another subject before he beats it to death. I do think that he had some misplaced ideas, like you having to be in certian places or in certian seasons to feel the Tao. I think that the Tao is everywhere and timless. Well worth a read but Deng may be a little too strict and monastic for some readers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What an argument, 24. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Te of Piglet (Taschenbuch)
I'm suprised that this book is loved and reviled so much by so many. It appears to be something that you either love or hate. I will agree with many of the reviews in that Hoff spends a good share of the book expressing his views on the modern world and that he can be a little more relaxed about it, being a Taoist and all. I believe the Tao Te Ching says "Do you want to improve the world? I do not think it can be done." In spite of his poor attitude I think he describes the concept of Te very well. Well worth a little opinionated comment or several.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book on Tao ever, 24. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Tao of Pooh (Taschenbuch)
I picked this book up at a used bookstore because it was cute. It turned into much more than that. Hoff presents the Tao in a simple way, just like it should be presented. This book is simple enough to be read to a child but complex enough for the most intelectual adults to read over and over again. I highly recomend it for anyone who is well familiar with taoism or to anyone who is just curious about it. Also highly recomended for anyone who wants a feel good read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Relaxing read and a great story, 1. Juni 2000
This really is one of the best Vonnegut books I have read. I loved the simplistic story and straightforward plot, much easier to understand than Vonnegut's other books and the characters are more like real people making them much easier to relate to than a soldier who travels through time used in one of his other books for example. Mr. Vonnegut even has some realistic romance in this story, which makes it quite refreshing. Most of his other books portray romance as a human folly that always ends in tragedy (I can see his point but it's best to enjoy nice things while they last). I would highly recomend this book for anyone who loves Vonnegut or anyone who has hope for the human condition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen PIcks you up when you're down, 1. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hocus Pocus (Taschenbuch)
This was the second Vonnegut book I ever read. I read it when I was living in a one bedroom apartment in Las Vegas six years ago with three other guys. The apartment was right off Freemont street where prostitutes and drug dealers hung out all night and no-one with any sense ever went out there after dark. Reading this book made me laugh about the whole situation and I read it often still. When things seem at their worst Vonnegut always says "It's ok everyone else is having a bad time too."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cute and Helpfull, 26. März 2000
Wu-Wei provides a neat text on living principles from the I Ching. I did like how he made it very accessable and light hearted. I don't like it when other authors take Oriental philosophy too seriously. Wu-Wei makes the I Ching principles easy to digest and easy to live by in the modern world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Neat as a journal, 24. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The I Ching Workbook (Plastikspiralbindung)
I really liked how this book is set up. I din't think that all of the questions wu wei has for each reading applies every time you do a reading. I loved how the I ching is in the front of the book. It's like getting two books in one! Any I use it frequently and will fill it up soon and buy another.


Communicating at Work: Principles and Practices for Business and the Professions
Communicating at Work: Principles and Practices for Business and the Professions
von Ronald B. Adler
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Basic and helpfull, 24. März 2000
Don't expect any grand revelations here but do expect some good advice. I refer to the section on presentations and visual aids all the time when I have to give a talk at work. I think the book could use a little stepping up in the pace of the information. It was a litte bit basic for me. However I will say that when I go to work I see things that many people out in the workforce could use every day, like how to dress professionally.


Algebra & Trigonometry Enhanced with Graphing Utilities

  Gebundene Ausgabe

2.0 von 5 Sternen What can you say it's a math book?, 24. März 2000
I did use this book for two semesters and I did pass my classes with good enough grades to go on to calculus. I didn't like how it was missing any practical applications for most of the material. isn't college about the time to reveal hou you are going to USE all this math you've learned? Oh well many challenging problems but I would not buy this book for my personal library.
