Life Is What You Make It: Find Your Own Path to Fulfillment
Life Is What You Make It: Find Your Own Path to Fulfillment
The son of one of world's richest billionaires, Peter Buffett received from his dad what many could call a dubitable inheritance: a $90K check at age 19. Period. Peter was raised to expect nothing unearned. He understood from early on that his father's substantial fortune would never trickle down his way, because he needed to find his own path, prove himself, make his own living, and discover his self-worth, self-respect, and the meaning of his life all on his own. His true inheritance was less tangible: uncompromising moral and ethical values, true love of knowledge and learning, and a strong work ethic that was based not on acquiring wealth but on committing to his passion. Eventually Peter carved out his own successful career as a music composer and author, and later also created a way to give back to society by starting a foundation that helps girls and women find equality and opportunities.

Children born to wealth are often passionless or indifferent: they have little motivation to work because they take everything for granted. Oftentimes, as well, parents misguidedly give to their children in excess, trying to make up for their own lacks while growing up. This little book offers many insights that may help all find the right attitude and perspective to discover true passion and joy in their lives.
30th Anniversary Concert Celebration [Deluxe Edition]
30th Anniversary Concert Celebration [Deluxe Edition]
Ironic to think that this set - recorded in October 1992, was celebrating Dylan's 30th anniversary as a recording artist, and here we are in 2016, another quarter of a century plus later, and Dylan's just released a new album. Anyway, I bought both the deluxe vinyl and CD version of this set. I have reviewed the vinyl, and all I would like to add is that this album has an added poignancy when you consider that several of the performers - Richie Havens, Lou Reed, George Harrison, Johnny Cash, Johnny Winter, members of The Band - are now gone. And Dylan is still with us. Some great songs here - and the odd indifferent performance, but overall a worthy celebration of Dylan's enduring talent.
Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition (The MIT Press)
Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition (The MIT Press)
I think this is a pretty good book that is easy to read if you have a strong background in proof-based math.

Highlights:
- The introduction (Chapters 1-4) is really good and does a good job setting up all the fundamental concepts of algorithms. I think a lot of people tend to skip over introductions because they think they know all of it already, but this is an introduction that I recommend reading the whole way through.
- The book is a pretty light read (none of the math is too difficult) and each chapter is a good length.
- I think the material on dynamic programming and greedy algorithms was particularly enlightening, and if you read it the whole way through you actually learn how to prove that greedy algorithms work, instead of just being like "let's use a greedy algorithm because it seems right"
- I was able to copy a lot of CLRS code almost verbatim in my programming interviews and pass them.
- The figures are really well done and informative.

Drawbacks:
- The pseudocode has a lot of one-letter variable names, and while this follows the tradition of pure math, it also makes understanding the algorithms more difficult than it should be.
- Sometimes the pseudocode is not the "easiest" possible pseudocode (for example, merge sort), and I think it would be better if the authors presented a simpler version of the pseudocode first and then extended it to the optimal version. But then I guess CLRS would be even longer than it already is.
- The arrays are 1-indexed, which makes it trickier to convert to code. Also there are some sections of the textbook (the counting sort section) where some of the arrays are 0-indexed and other arrays are 1-indexed, which is just weird.
- I think the material on graphs, particularly the derivations, could be done in a more engaging and intuitive way. The derivations in Chapters 22-24 were a long series of small uninteresting lemmas, instead of a small number of harder, more insightful theorems. I found derivations elsewhere on the internet that were a lot more interesting and built more intuition about why the procedures worked. I feel like the rest of the book is pretty good though, so maybe all the graph stuff was written by a separate person who is not very good at explaining things.

Boutght this for my husband, he loves it! But as a collector he noticed the box was bent and this decreases the value of the collectors price.

We didn’t return it! But since it was a gift I was a little disappointed it wasn’t in superb condition.
Could have been where it was tossed around in shipping!
Thoreau's Maine Woods
Thoreau's Maine Woods
I purchased this book at a library book sale last year and cannot believe that someone gave it away. It is such a well put together book. Of course there are Thoreau's words, not the whole of his book as someone noted, but judiciously selected paragraphs. They are a superb selection to give a concise picture of how Thoreau viewed Maine. Then there are the photographs. The publisher does a lot of Maine coffee table books of the usual sort featuring lighthouses and moose and "quaint" fishing villages. I dislike the lot. Dan Tobyne's photos in this book are in another class. The pictures are teamed with the selections from Thoreau in a thoughtful way. If you have ever spent time in the Maine woods, these pictures will instantly bring back memories of your trip, all the solitude, the brief glimpses of mountains through the trees, the muddy trails, the soft rain, the lingering fog; they are all there..
Who Was Dr. Seuss?
Who Was Dr. Seuss?
I love the "Who Was" and "Who Is" collection for my nine year old son. They are so informative and my child reads them before bed every night. This book, however, I would not purchase UNLESS you feel comfortable having to explain to your child why on earth there is a section in this book explaining that our most beloved childhood author had an interest in naked lady books. What are you thinking with this book? Who is the audience? Adults????? Obviously this is a book for kids. Why is this detail included? Why is no thought given to preserving the innocence of our children? Now, I had to spend ten minutes explaining this to my son and it is something he will never get out of his head. What a disappointment and complete lack of judgement by everyone involved in creating this book.

大人になって久々に赤川次郎さんの本を読み始めたのがこのシリーズです。
推理小説というより、主人公を取り巻く人間模様や人間臭さ、がメインテーマになっているようで、
面白いなぁと思います。

正直、期待はあまりしていなかったのですが、読み始めると一つ歳を重ねた主人公のその後が
気になり、あっという間にここまでに。

ずっと図書館で借りていたのですが、何故か、この”暗黒…”だけが予約待ちで
ずっと借りれず購入しました。

読んでみると、なるほど、主人公のターニングポイントを描いた作品で
表紙の構図がぴったり。

この後のシリーズもまだまだ読み続けて主人公の人生を臨場感たっぷりで
楽しみたいと思います。

The Twisted Thing
The Twisted Thing
The Twisted Thing (1966) was Mickey Spillane’s first Mike Hammer novel in two years as he had been busy with his Tiger Mann series in the interim. In this book, which apparently was written much earlier, Hammer is mostly disconnected from the incidents that had occurred in the two previous published installments (The Girl Hunters and The Snake) following the character’s reintroduction in 1962 after a decade-long hiatus.

Old NYPD crony Pat Chambers makes only a brief appearance (there is another compliant cop to serve as Hammer’s legal shield and deus ex machina) and supposed fiancee Velda none at all. Hammer’s conflict with Chambers over Velda, a huge component of The Girl Hunters and still festering somewhat in The Snake, is only hinted at in one line here. On the other hand, Hammer does refer (without elaboration) to the startling conclusion of Spillane’s first Hammer novel, I the Jury, which cemented both Hammer’s reputation as a borderline psychopath and Spillane’s as a writer willing to do anything to make a splash.

Otherwise, The Twisted Thing is pretty much a Hammer standalone novel, which is fine. It is vintage Spillane with its tough guy talk (like all Hammer—and Mann—books, it is narrated in first person), convoluted mystery, convenient clues, plot-advancing coincidences and stupendously preposterous conclusion. The story starts with Hammer’s investigation of the kidnapping of a rich scientist’s 14-year-old son, which soon leads to a number of murders (including one with a meat cleaver), all of which takes place in the small Upstate New York town of Sidon. Along the way Hammer deals with crooked (and murderous) local cops, a lusty dame or two and even some lesbians. Of course he gets knocked around a time or two but always comes up swinging.

Did I enjoy it? Yes…yes I did. Spillane is a master at keeping the plot and suspense going with a combination of new developments and sheer stylistic aplomb. He does so here. The Twisted Thing is one of the best of Spillane’s Hammer books.
Blindside (Michael Bennett Book 12)
Blindside (Michael Bennett Book 12)
Why did you go down this road ??? I can only believe that Michael Bennett IS NOT THE good father that Mr Patterson makes him out to be. How can a man be a good father when one of his sons is a drug dealer ? AS for him getting a job , forget it , who in their right mind wants a jailed dealer AS a employee ? NOT ME . He is barred from the military , NO police force will have him . No bank or other type of financial business will have him . Mow lawns and shovel snow is all he will be good for . Next problem for him will be when the drug enforcement guys come around and order him to become a snitch or he will go back to jail . That will be a lot of fun , this whole series was a good read for me until Michael was jailed , after that thumbs down , I am thru with this series , NO more for me . This is not what entertains me . I read it to see how it ends , but that's it NO more for me . Thank you Mr. Patterson but no thank you NO more for me , I am done .

J'ai commandé tous les autres tomes sur Amazon, aucun soucis sauf quelques micro frottement sur les pochettes, en revanche, celui la et le tome précédent laisse franchement à désirer quant à leur état (pochette très frottés, un peu plié dans les coins), c'est très dérangeant quand on veut conserver ces livres en décoration ou qu'on aime que ce soit neuf. Je garde les deux livres malgré tout parce que c'est pas la mort mais essayez de faire attention au stockage.

This sweatshirt is really soft and cozy, and definitely the kind of thing you want to snuggle up in while you watch or read Harry Potter. However, please be forewarned that it's unisex, so ladies, size accordingly! I wanted to be able to stick it in the drier without worrying, so even though I typically wear a small, I purchased a medium. It is huge on me. I can still get away with it, but please be aware. Otherwise, a great product.

I have a great phone case but often times I fear my cameras from cracking or breaking due to not much protection. These are perfect. Very easy to use and great for the iphone 12 pro max. Comes with 3 camera lens protectors and a variety of different colors to choose from. In the package it comes with wet wipes, a cleaning cloth, a dust-free sticker and the 3 lens. Very easy to attach to your phone- just peel off the sticker on the back and then just click the lens to your camera. I even checked to make sure that my camera still worked perfectly and it does! It doesn't take away from any camera quality. Highly recommend!

This is the one to buy. Good price too. Phone store tried to convince me to buy their $40 one. Don’t do that.

I always use a glass screen saver on my phone. Went through my Amazon history to see what brands I had bought in the past b/c a new phone size meant I couldn’t just “reorder.” But I had noticed drops were cracking my the screen protectors more often. Where as I used to be able to have a few drops and nothing would happen, just the really really bad drops would crack my screen protector.

The longer lasting more durable brand? TECH ARMOR. I’ve switched back to them. There IS a difference in brands.

Since the iPhone has curved glass on the edge, the protector covers the lit part, not the black areas along the edge; this is better b/c you won’t have dust/debris under the edge and your phone case won’t fight with this screen protector.

Installation has been made nearly fool proof with the plastic frame/guide. Thank you Tech Armor!! Seriously it’s a night and day difference for the install, you should buy this screen protector for this feature alone.

Phone works the same as with or without it.

Celebration Herbals Organic Licorice Root Tea -- 24 Tea Bags
I found that the tea did not have the best aroma after brewed( kind of smells like dirt and roots). Many teas have this scent. The taste started light and then left and great aftertaste of licorice. In the end I have to say I like it because of the licorice after taste, it's not there when you first drink, but then the flavor hits you especially at the back of the mouth and goes down nice.
Eric Carle My Busy Book
Eric Carle My Busy Book
I was on the fence about these busy books becaue they don’t really share pictures of all the figurines or the play mat... but I took a chance and it’s awesome! I got this to keep my kid busy and quiet during church and I’m not disappointed. The figurines are sturdy, the book talks about each figurine included, and the play mat is large (maybe 24x36in... I haven’t measured, just an estimate).

The reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because of the construction of the “book.” The book pages are like a board book and are perfect. But the construction of the back of the book that holds the toys and play mat is flimsy, held together by tape. If I were to remove the clear plastic covering (held on by the tape) the pieces would freely move around, making traveling with it pretty impossible. So I’ve kept the plastic and tape in place, though I don’t think it will have longevity with constant play. Otherwise for the price it’s amazing! Toys, a book, and a play mat for around $10-12 is really reasonable, considering that buying most toy figurines can be that much or more on their own.
