  • Sometimes I act crazy : living with borderline… by Kreisman, Jerold J.
    ★★★★★

    I read this book because I was trying to gain some insight into the mindset of someone with Borderline. I wouldn't categorize this as an enjoyable read because the peoples' lives are very un-productive as witnessed by their friends and family and their mood swings and up-rooted-ness can be completely flattening to think about. Either which case; the section on splitting was useful and so if you or a loved one has some kind of split personality disorder reading this book could be a great way to get close to them  or realize that it's not what you say, it's how you say it...that can make all the difference in someones life.

    For me it was worth reading to know that there's other people that go their whole life without knowing that they are Borderline or what that means. So if you are searching for a label and see yourself in this  .....which could happen.....make sure  you have a therapist professional to bounce thoughts off of.

  • All creatures great and small by Herriot, James.
    ★★★★★

    This is the best series of all time and it is full of wacky British humor and pet stories. This is the perfect first book of the series. I highly recommend it for anyone 10years old and up who either didn't read it growing up, or who needs to practice proper writing because they have only grown up reading J.K. Rowling, or Diary of a Wimpy Kid which, lets face it are not that full of words which are included in Websters' Dictionary. Request this book and demand that it be kept in circulation as the timeless classic it is!

  • The sixth extinction : an unnatural history by Kolbert, Elizabeth.
    ★★★★★

    The 6th Extinction is the most important science book to come out all decade. Elizabeth Kolbert sets her life on hold and starts taking trips into the Rainforest to search for frogs, when she discovers that frog and other amphibian populations are being wiped out and there is very little coverage of it. The deeper she digs the more there is to un-earth, whether it's to clarify who influenced Darwin as he was pondering The Origin of Species, from other extinct animals which we rarely consider Mrs. Kolbert has finally brought earth science to the front and center of our lives. Whether we choose to react by all switching to solar-powered car shares and migrating to higher elevations out of the path of hurricanes, it is humbling to contemplate the preciousness of our Whole Planet, not just the parts we get caught up in everyday. I urge you to be the citizen who is concerned enough to read a serious science book. There are a shortage of these because they are not inventive in the slightest and require extraordinary research and cross-fact checking especially inlight of other science books in the 500's of the Dewey decimal order. Please leave comments and add your thoughts!

    The worlds first and only, never to be replicated Travelogue of Australia. Confused about the interior of this continent that is a country? Fear not. Don't bring a lonely planet guide on your trip...you can pluck one from any other traveler you bump elbows with down under. Bring Bill Bryson with you instead. This does not cover any modern tech companies or businesses but focuses on geological and geographical aspects of the land.

  • A short history of nearly everything by Bryson, Bill.
    ★★★★★

    Stymied about the importance of Science and the size of your footprint in the cosmos? Allow Bill Bryson with all of his technical wit to correctly pinpoint with precison the order of everything from the start of our universe, asteroids, and plate tectonics, to other glossed over fascinating aspects of human history such as aborigines in australia and rock formations used as a primitive sound amplification device to warn of predators. Bryson has a very special lexicon which will totally rock (and upheave) your British English world.
