    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for executive job searchers
    In February 2008, as a result of the credit crisis, I found myself "in transition".While I believe that I already had excellent networking skills, when I stumbled across this book, I decided to pick it up to see what else I could learn.

    What a find!Mr. Davies has created a blueprint for networking as the key strategy to an executive job search.I applied his methodology, got very focused and guess what!It worked extremely well, and it made the job search kind of fun!

    His theory is that if you target meeting with 100 new people through networking, you will find a job.By the time I was at 72, I had two offers in hand.In a downward-spiraling economy, it took me a total of four months to find a job.I had the benefit of outplacement services as a part of my package, and the folks with the outplacement company were so impressed with the approach that I was using that they had me working with some of their other clients to coach them on networking (I eventually had to draw the line, since they were asking me to provide gratis a service that they were getting paid for).

    The position that I accepted has turned out very well.Thanks John!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Job Search Methodology
    This is not a theoretical book, which can be quite important to the job-seeker who isn't looking for a theoretical job!This is a very practical book born out of Davies' alarming job search realization that, after 18 years of running a company, he was 287th in line for the CEO job he wanted!

    He realized he needed to dramatically change his job search approach and this book documents the detailed and pragmatic process he created to land the right job.

    Davies covers a lot of useful ground -- business cards, executive biographies, getting over the 2nd call hurdle, the targeted number of calls / emails a week, how to use a database to track a job search, how to leverage online networks and how many new people to meet to get the perfect job - and does it with good examples, wizards, pictures etc.

    I am currently in the middle of a job search where I've employed the author's methodology with good success.It has led me to 80 new relevant contacts, 50 of whom I've now met, spoken, or emailed with.It has also led to meetings with eight CEOs for the VP-level job I am targeting.

    I was curious if Davies himself would help me in my job search.I didn't know him but he works in my industry and we had a common contact who recommended his book to me in the first place.I called him up (he was my 66th new contact) and used the techniques he outlines in his book to explore how we could help each other.He introduced me to several very helpful folks, including the co-founder of a company I am targeting.

    It doesn't get much more practical than that!Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Business Book You'll Read Again
    It's difficult to advance the eloquent and thoughtful reviews provided below. But, I'd like to add my recommendation for "The $100,000+ Career".

    Unlike most business books, it's a quick, entertaining read. John has a gift for driving complex ideas into simple, easy to understand prose. If you're looking for an elaborate expose on business networking, this book is not for you. If, however, you're looking to advance your career in a positive way, apply basic networking techniques to all facets of your life, and enjoy yourself in the process, you've come to the right place.

    I have been a successful professional for 20 years. Networking has been, and continues to be, a key component of that success. In fact, effective networking kept me employed over the last 10 years. I never used a resume. Once, I had to rush to put a resume together the night before I met executives just so HR could attach it to my file. When I was on the market, people called me.

    Enter John Davies. Surely, a seasoned professional like me doesn't need another book telling me what I already know?! Not true. I work in a high-turnover environment. I recently discovered my small network of business professionals wasn't enough. It literally dried up of all opportunities. No one had a position available, and everyone I knew was aware of the same jobs. Obviously, painfully, for the first time in many years, I needed to expand my network.

    I've practiced many of John's fundamental techniques over the years. But, I rarely organized my networking activities in a meaningful, consistent way. His methodology reinforced my previous behavior and offered new approaches to my current "transition".

    The genius of John's book is in its application beyond the job search. His common sense approach can be used in all aspects of your professional and personal life.

    I have personally recommended "The $100,000+ Career" to several people. I already know it is destined to become the first business book I re-read. Whether you're just starting a job search or are an experienced, employed networker, I suspect this book will also become the one you reference again and again.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guidance for creating career and personal happiness (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Job Search)
    The $100,000+ Career is good reading, period.I started the book with connotations of this being a business book, but I ended knowing this is a book about people.By humanizing the frigid concept of networking, John Davies shows how getting the job we want, or conceiving of that job in the first place, is achievable.His current job, as highlighted in the book, is proof that his ideas work.

    The book bridges the gap between old-fashioned communication (you know, talking to people) and how we communicate now: sending and receiving to the world, but in isolation.With thoughtful advice and engaging anecdotes, Davies offers practical steps for how to be introduced to 100 new people, the "Law of 100" that he says can get anyone the job she wants.The trick is not in meeting 100 anybodies, but knowing how to meet the right people to help you on your job search.In this book, he shows the way.

    Davies clearly embraces his own advice, using his job search experience to show the Law of 100 in action.The book extends into of social networking, being marketable without being a commodity, practical tools for organizing these efforts, co-conspirators, terrible caddies, and even a phone call to Bob Marley.It's an unusual and exciting read.

    Finally, any book that begins with a quote from John Waters has to be, at the very least, interesting.Anyone, not just businesspeople, will take a lot from this book.Personally, I enjoyed the advice for how to take control of my career.More valuable that that, I also learned that networking isn't about using people to get jobs.It's about developing relationships that improve and enrich our lives (no, seriously!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read with a fresh perspective .
    I enjoyed this a lot and found that many of John's ideas are applicable for all , not only executives in transition . A wonderful "gift" book for those who are stuck and in need of some inspiration . ... Read more

    The book is a very good example of an excellent scientific popularization. A similar book updated to this year 2010 would be most welcome and needed.

    The matter myth clearly explains to me, all about the subject written, and the authors knowledge and intellect on this subject...Its information truly moves to the core of the subject matter that this author speaks about.
    Well written, this book is, and close to my own thinking. I recommend this book highly for all to read.Don't miss it...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Primer On The Physics of Our Universe
    Mr. Davies keeps it as down to earth as you can with these advanced physics concepts.It is easy to understand and very stimulating if you need a good 'thinking' read.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Update needed!
    I agree with the majority of reviewers that this is an excellent book, making some very difficult concepts understandable to the layman. The book was published in 1992, and I bought the October 2007 edition. It is a pity that so much data in the book are outdated: Dark matter is hardly mentioned, and there is no reference to dark energy; the age of the universe is given as 'about 15 billion years', and I quote from page 174: 'The expansion rate (of the universe) is inexorably slowing.' Unfortunately, outdated concepts like these undermine the credibility of the book on the whole. I hope the authors review the book soon.

    Product Description
    This ancient Gnostic text can be a companion for your own spiritual quest

    The Secret Book of John is the most significant and influential text of the ancient Gnostic religion. Part of the library of books found in Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1945, this central myth of Gnosticism tells the story of how God fell from perfect Oneness to imprisonment in the material world, and how by knowing our divine nature and our divine origins—that we are one with God—we reverse God’s descent and find our salvation.

    The Secret Book of John: The Gnostic Gospel—Annotated & Explained decodes the principal themes, historical foundation, and spiritual contexts of this challenging yet fundamental Gnostic teaching. Drawing connections to Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, kabbalistic Judaism, and Sufism, Davies focuses on the mythology and psychology of the Gnostic religious quest. He illuminates the Gnostics’ ardent call for self-awareness and introspection, and the empowering message that divine wholeness will be restored not by worshiping false gods in an illusory material world but by our recognition of the inherent divinity within ourselves.

    Now you can experience and understand this foundational teaching even if you have no previous knowledge of Gnosticism. This SkyLight Illuminations edition presents the most important and valued book in Gnostic religion with insightful yet unobtrusive commentary. It provides deeper insight into the understanding that in Gnosticism the distinction between savior and saved ceases to exist—you must save yourself and in doing so save God. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read!
    This is definitely a book more people should read, like everyone.
    Clear, informative and worth a second read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Does not line up with God's message (Bible)
    I looked at much of the "secret" gospel of John.I can safely say that anything named "secret" is nothing at all.There is not one thing in this book that is beneficial to anyones spiritual growth, simply because it doesn't line up with the gospel of Christ, nor the story of creation in the Bible.This is coming from someone who isn't a total conservative style Christian, who is open to apocryphal writings.Gnosticism is a religion that twists the message of Christ and pollutes it!Quit complicating the faith of Christ by adding false things.This book is awful, don't bother opening it or falling into its snare.


    5-0 out of 5 stars A big piece to the puzzle
    I read this book years ago and didn't get nearly as much out of it as today. I doubt that first time readers are going to penetrate any book by John easily. The cosmology expressed needs commentary for modern man, or traditional Christians, who have been trained a different way.

    What I like about this book is the way it explains the Godhead as male and female, the various layers of the universe, the various co-creators with God that hurt his creation, and the clear references to karma (called fate), and reincarnation, that were probably a part of the original teachings of Jesus. I also see possible references to Aliens and UFO's in this book, which were also a part of Gnostic teaching.

    Some people might think that Jesus doesn't sound like "Jesus" in this book due to his longer discourses. If so, try reading "Love without End", "The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ", or other books in the Gnostic collection. I think that you will see that Jesus spoke at length about the subjects he loved, with higher initiates, every chance he got. He's just that kind of a person.

    4-0 out of 5 stars much to be considered
    Reading this item is an excellent way to begin a study of the forty-eight gnostic tracts in the Nag Hammadi Library. However, a reader should know that Davies believes that the Gospels' bifurcated Jesus was a historical person, as do all other translators of the tracts in theLibrary. Their translations and commentary are tainted by this a priori belief. The historical evidence upon which they rely does not include relevant material, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls' Teacher of Righteousness and his ideological opposite, referred to only as The Liar, whose ideologies can be found in the words and deeds attributed to Jesus, John the Baptist and Paul. Also relevant are the Mandean scriptures which reveal that the relationship between Jesus and the Baptist was not as pictured in the Gospels. This accounts for the fact that the Nag Hammadi tracts, read as a whole, clearly show that some gnostics supported, while others rejected, two basic tenets of the Christian faith, namely, repentance and baptism. They also disagree on whether everyone will eventually return by way of reincarnation to whence theycame or whether some will be eternally tormented. The Secret Book of John takes both positions. I discuss the source of disagreement in a manuscript presently being reviewed by historian David Blair and Watkins Publishing Company. There is much to be learned about gnosticism and the origin of Christianity, and Davies' work is a significant contribution.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cornerstone of Gnostic Mythos
    The Secret Book of John was a difficult read,at first. More so, possibly because I had originally read it in James M. Robinson's Nag Hammadi Library collection. I appreciate the classic value of the Robinson edition, but since then other interpretors have better clarified the secret texts, in comprehensible and succinct language. Davies' book is one such basic read, although I still call Marvin Meyer's "The Gnostic Teachings of Jesus" my favorite. However, Davies' "Annotated & Explained" goes further than Myers, so now I have two on my shelves. The more interpretation samples we read, the better our understanding of such esoteric material. "John" is not at all like the Secret Gospel of Thomas, or the Gospel of Mary, which were short, and "sayings". This book is more like a "cosmology according to the Christ".

    What throws so many people off from The Secret Book/Teaching/Apocryphon of John is that the story doesn't resemble anything else Jesus said in the New Testament. People also tend to condemn it because it stands rather disconnected from other gospel, apocrypha and epistles, and has a sense of fantasy about it. Jesus explains Sophia, the feminine wisdom who gave virgin birth to Yaldabaoth, the demiurge. It discusses the role of archons, even naming the Archons of Yaldabaoth. It is highly revelatory, but so are the writings of Swedenborg, J. Smith and John Ballou Newbrough, to name just a few latter day prophets. The Secret Book of John is a syncretism of Greek ideas and Judaic Genesis mythology. If you give it a chance, you can come away with meaningful and life changing knowledge. One thing it did for me was answer the eternal question of "why bad things happen to good people".

    That question has never been answered satisfactorily by more traditional (note, I avoid the term "Orthodox", my bias--sorry) priests and pastors, because they don't teach that it was an imperfect demiurge that made an imperfect world. Once you accept that premise, everything else falls into place. For any reader serious about Gnosticism or Gnostic-curious, this is the book to start with. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dreary,dry and dull
    The title of this review may sound like a law firm but it is sadly the truth about this book.
    I did not buy this expecting a light ,easy read but Lordy! it is a chore [I gave up around two thirds of the way through,unwilling to be bored rigid any longer].As a textbook or source for a thesis or for someone who wanted to write an interesting book about Wales,it would be useful.If these are not your inentions give it
    a big miss.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
    This is one of the worst general history books I have ever read. The writing is endlessly drudging, consistently focused on the least interesting aspects of every topic. If you would like to know the exact number of people working in the Welsh minefields in 1921 versus 1931, or how many seats the Conservatives won in the 1984 election, this is the book for you. If you would like something that instead conveys an over-arching, well-thought-out, and interesting grasp of the history of Wales, read something else.

    I sought this book out because I will soon be moving to Wales, and wanted to learn about the region's history. Well, this was the wrong choice. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you are already very knowledgeable about Wales. Davies consistently makes allusions to myths, people, or events without explaining them; for instance, during the chapters on the Middle Ages, he often mentioned that a certain person was the ancestor of "the famous X". Who were these famous descendants? I have no idea, since they were never people the average American has heard of, and Davies did not bother to explain himself. I'm sure that this would not be a problem for people more familiar with Wales, but for someone seeking to learn, it was a major stumbling block. The most egregious example of this is the fact that this book has dozens of maps, showing the population in areas of Wales, different industries in Wales, distributions of religions in Wales, etc. However, there is a not a single map included with the major rivers and geographic areas labeled, so that a reader unfamiliar with the region could orient themselves.

    In addition, Davies consistently focused on the most irrelevant, boring, and mind-numbing aspects of history. He almost seems to deliberately avoid interesting details. For instance, he often mentions poets famous for their lyricism. Does the book feature even one quote of that beautiful poetry? No. He mentions powerful, compelling novelists, without telling us what they wrote their novels on. He describes preachers famous for their sermons, but does not tell us what they said. He alludes to beautiful paintings, architecture, sculpture, and other arts, but does not include a single photo. The entire book instead focuses on numbers and dates. Let me quote an example for you. During an investigation of working conditions in the minefields, Davies writes that the investigator was "horrified by the inhuman attitude of some of the owners and by the arrogance of landlords such as the duke of Northumberland and Baron Tredegar, men who had profited greatly from the royalties paid upon the coal mined beneath their estates" (page 516). That sounds interesting, right? What did they say that was so horrifying and arrogant? Too bad if you wanted to know, because Davies never says. However, he does have plenty of space, in the previous paragraph, to write that "By 15 April the miners had agreed by 693,684 votes to 76,992 to accept the Sankey proposals" (page 515). Because the average reader really *needs* to know the exact number of votes cast on every issue. Don't worry, Davies will give you those exact numbers for every political election.

    Like I said, Wales isn't my specialty. However, I do study pre-history, and I have to say that Davies got a few facts wrong in that chapter (he doesn't seem to understand the distinctions between Neanderthals, Homo sapiens, and Cro-Magnons, and in addition got a date wrong). Clearly prehistory isn't his focus, so he probably had fewer mistakes in the rest of the book, but it did make me wonder.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Complete Welsh History
    The Author's credentials are impressive and reviews tout the work highly.The book is comprehensive in the timeline and written by an academic--not a narrative for entertainment and requires interest in these remarkable people and their unique country.First few pages very informative and basis for understanding Welsh historical progression to contemporary time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Massive in bulk, masterful in scope
    Just over seven-hundred pages in paperback, this updated narrative spans it all, from prehistory to devolution. Its bulk belies its often remarkable readability. Translated in 1993 by the author from the 1990 Welsh-language edition, with an eleventh chapter added to the 2007 revision, Davies' coverage keeps energy and verve despite an inevitable recital of lots of names, dates, statistics, and data.

    This makes it a challenge, naturally, to read straight through-- if with many breaks! Still, as a reference, my copy's filled with notations now. While the lack of footnotes or a bibliography (due to the length of the body of the text already) may discourage researchers slightly, the value of a one-volume, thorough, and accessible work remains inestimable to scholars and a wider audience both.

    Davies keeps a winningly low-key presence. As a skilled interpreter, he presents heaps of evidence through which he's sifted the wheat from the chaff. The labor must have been immense. He gives you material, and then steps back to sum it up in a striking phrase now and then, as an experienced lecturer may do. "The nation of the Welsh was conceived on the death-bed of the Roman Empire; it was born in the excitement of the 'Age of Saints' but its infancy was meagre and lonely. Yet, as shall be seen, it would have an exhilarating adolescence." (77) So ends the chapter on the early medieval period-- one of the most difficult to explain based on the least evidence, but a section I found captivating.

    Although Davies never explains this directly, he organizes each chapter around the rhetorical device of a triad-- commonly used in old Welsh as a memory aid for bards. While this remains rather subtle, it's a clever nod to the past legacy that sustains the present exploration of what it means to be Welsh, always defined as both the oldest British and, as the terms warp, a "foreigner" in one's own homeland. This challenge remains. The last chapter looks at incomers and how they've transformed "y Gymru Gymraeg"-- the formerly Welsh-speaking heartland. "Pont," a "bridge" program aimed at newcomers to teach them about local culture, rests on a shaky metaphor: "the essence of a bridge is that the piers on either side are of equal strength; that was hardly true of the pier of Englishness and the pier of Welshness." (689)

    Speaking of architecture, many tourists today, along with the "heritage industry," romanticize old fortifications. Davies, typically, balances his judgment. "The castles can be considered to be shameful memorials to the subjugation of the Welsh-- 'the magnificent badges of our subjection' as Thomas Pennant put it. Yet, when it is considered that the medieval military architect's science and art at the height of their development were necessary to ensure that subjection, the castles may be seen as a tribute to the tenacity of the resistance of the Welsh, as eloquent testimony to the immensity of the task of uprooting from Wales the rule of the Welsh." (167)

    This exemplifies the depth of this study. Davies cites a telling phrase from a venerable scholar two hundred years previous to him. He acknowledges its truth, while circling around it for a fresh perspective that confirms its necessity while directing our attention to its opposite, or complimentary in more peaceful times, corollary. And, he strives for fair-mindedness rather than jingoism or revisionism.

    For such legends and identities last long in Wales. Treating a period of tranquility within an often fractious later medieval period of increasingly English-inflicted domination, Davies notes how myths played a dual role in exacerbating wrath and reconciling defeat. Myths "were a cry against the extinction of identity and against the tyranny of fact." (180)

    Later, Davies relates the gradual capitulation to imperial rule, and the often enthusiastic participation by the Welsh in the colonial enterprises at home and abroad. Imbued with Non-Conformist and even pacifist Christian tendencies, the Welsh proved rather an anomaly in more recent centuries. Their literacy rates soared as the Bible was translated into the people's native tongue, and this education prepared them better than other Celts, perhaps, to face the assaults of modernity and industrialization that kept many Welsh at home rather than forcing them to emigrate. So many that at one point about half of all the workers in Wales directly or indirectly depended on King Coal. He sums up the change: "In Merthyr, even a labourer owned a watch." (340)

    The century of mining domination is introduced by a particularly masterful seventh chapter that ties together dozens of threads into a rich tapestry of rebellion, technology, language, worship, and politics in the early 1800s. While I found myself a bit glazed by the subsequent treatment of Gladstone and Liberals-- the book here as in sections closer to our times does get heavily weighed down by parliamentarian election results and inter-party contentions-- I was roused by the chapter on the early 20th century. Davies seems to revive and his pace quickens.

    Radicalism and Christian values contended and co-existed in complex fashions in modern times. Conservatism influenced the nature of the language movement, as advocates sometimes argued that Cymraeg shielded its speakers from harmful foreign ideas. Others urged anglicization as a remedy for poverty and a charm for wealth. Unlike Ireland, the factions for independence by violent means were few, and generally the Welsh have accepted their position, Davies charts, within a kingdom as a principality, rather than as a polity demanding separation by language or ideology. Here, Davies seems to align with Gwyn A. Williams, whose "When Was Wales?" (1983; reviewed by me on Amazon last month) sets out a similar understanding.

    Of course, whereas Williams concluded in the first term of Thatcher, Davies continues the saga through the collapse of mining, the rise to nearly half (as of 2003) of all births being out of wedlock, and the increasing visibility of Welsh-language media and English-language usage. He contrasts in the last chapter many ramifications of the narrow decision to accept in 1997 a degree of limited self-rule that was trounced in 1979. He leaves us with a survey of a more diverse, less Welsh-Wales-centered constituency in this region. One where the areas nearest the borders hold most of its people, often in defiance of stereotypes peddled by the Welsh themselves, it's an intriguingly perplexing realm. It's the oldest remaining bastion of Britishness, one marginalized, determined, and always, it seems, somehow declining while reviving.

    This is an extremely well written and thoroughly researched book.As usual, John Davies writes in a style which holds your interest while exploring a wide (sometimes vast) area of historical subject matters.Other countries should be so lucky to have such interesting, competent and even-handed scholars writing their histories.Highly recommnded. ...

    Product Description

    John James Audubon was a boy who loved the out-of-doors more than the in. He was a boy who believed in studying birds in nature, not just from books. And, in the fall of 1804, he was a boy determined to learn if the small birds nesting near his Pennsylvania home really would return the following spring.
    This book reveals how the youthful Audubon pioneered a technique essential to our understanding of birds. Capturing the early passion of America’s greatest painter of birds, this story will leave young readers listening intently for the call of birds large and small near their own homes.

    I purchased this book close to a year ago for my son's 8th birthday.He loved it, and he continues to regularly read the book.Also, he has developed an interest in birds and birdwatching.This was a great purchase and I recommend it.Now I am shopping for his 9th birthday and am looking for aome Audubon prints for him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking!
    My 5 children,ranging in age from 3-11 years,were absolutely captivated by this book.The author tells the story of a young John James Audubon and the illustrator brings the story alive thru rich mediums.This book is a perfect stepping stone to a variety of unit studies.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A survey of his pioneering observational techniques
    John James Audubon loved nature and the outdoors as a child, and was determined to study birds in the wild rather than from books even as early as 1804. Jacqueline Davies' lively story of his youth and pioneering attitude will reach grades 3-6 with an excellent survey of his pioneering observational techniques. Drawings by Melissa Sweet provide lovely accompaniment to the story of the naturalist's early years.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bird Lovers Take Note!
    I loved reading this beautiful book with my nieces and nephew. There's so much to look at in the illustrations, and the writing flows naturally like the countryside Audubon explored. Children will be inspired to conduct their own investigations in the outside world after reading this. Each time you read this book, you find new things to look at and words to enjoy. ... Read more

    Product Description

    Who were the Celts, and where did they come from? This new account of a most captivating culture--the official companion to a major international TV show-delves into their origins, following their movements into the traditionally accepted Celtic lands of Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, Brittany, and Galicia. Each fascinating chapter, illustrated with color photographs and maps, is based upon one program in the six-part series. From prehistoric Europe to near-obliteration to the dawn of a new self-assertion, a centuries-long story unfolds: the Celtic heyday with its bards and druids; the defeats by the Roman forces; the adoption of Christianity and the special nature of the Celtic church; and the modern era of emigration, which spread Celtic language, art, and music throughout the world.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best of the recent books on Celtic history
    This is simply the best book (in english at least) available on the broad sweep of Celtic history.John Davies asks questions that few, if any, other historians ask.An example is his attempt to determine when continental Gaulish celtic stopped being spoken.Most historians seem to assume that once the Romans took over Gaul, that was the end of Gaulish celtic being spoken.But Davies always asks more of the historical record than most authors do.He is also very evenhanded and, although he is Welsh and proud of it, he does not try to make the contributions of celtic speaking peoples to european and world history more than what they are.He writes very well and this book is aimed at a more general public than his book on the history of wales (which is also excellent).I absolutely recommend this book for anyone interested learning about the history of the celtic speaking peoples.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good book
    Beautiful photos.The text serves as a very good and well-written intro to Celtic history and culture in general, stretching from ancient times to the modern world.Good for someone who enjoys the subject but knows little about it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars who are those guys in the white sheets,not the.................?
    nope,just some neo-celtics doing some bonding.This picture book packs a wallop and shows the divisions of Celtic groups in Europe and the Islands.I had read previously that Stonehenge may very well not be a Celtic site seeing as it was built thousands of years before the Celts even inhabited the Isles,so the Celts may well have kidnapped the site and claimed it for their own.This picture book has excellent interpretations of European sites including the La Tene and the Halstatt.According to Davies these groups were separated by hundreds of years and may have been as different from each other as night and day,so one would want to be careful when discussing the Celtic World.Remember Caesar was able to play these people against each other very well.The book also tells the history of the Celts right to the present day including the Neo-Celtic movement,and the histories of the numerous Celtic dialects.If Celtism hasn't been watered down enough,then the "New AGERs",might take it another step removed.There are some subtle "digs" between the lines in this book.I asked myself after reading this book,"Is this new Celtic movement an unconsciuos attempt to remove the psychological yoke placed on the Celtic peoples by the Romans and William the Conqueror?When true Celtic speakers see these druidic ceremonies do they wince in pain at the further kidnapping of their culture.Well remember the Celts may have borrowed Stonehenge using the same methods.Grave goods in the high status burials of supposed Celts include a sword and cauldrons,so to be a new age druid you need-a sword,a cauldron,and a farmer's almanac?This books makes alot of questions,but the critical reader will welcome it. Excellent job. ... Read more

    Product Description
    This study examines the Law Reports of Sir John Davies and litigation pleaded before the central Irish courts during the period in which Davies served in Ireland as solicitor-general (1603-6) and attorney-general (1606-19). The author's main concern is to explicate the legal and jurisprudential issues involved and to draw out their deeper political implications. He argues that, in the absence of a malleable parliament, judge-made law became the instrument by which the Jacobean regime consolidated the Tudor conquest. The book also touches on the influence of the implementation of the law on the Irish coinage, Gaelic tenurial customs and religious conformity. More controversial themes include the origins of precedent in the Anglo-American legal tradition, the use of continental civil law in common law litigation and the relationship of early modern Ireland to the development of an imperial jurisprudence. ...

    The growth of health promotion as a topic for discussion and a principle for practice is widespread, and affects all groups of health professionals. The Healthy Cities project, like Health for All, was inaugurated by the World Health Organization and has informed policy throughout the world.
    Healthy Cities: Research and Practice examines the application of the project in a number of countries. The contributors explore problems in the relationship between policy makers, communities, and academic researchers, and discuss how the Healthy Cities program affects housing policy, community development, scientific interchange and health education. In addition, the Editors, John Davies and Michael Kelly, provide a context by tracing the history of the WHO projects and discuss them in the broader context of scientific and philosohical debates about modernism and post-modernism.
    The contributors are drawn from practitioners and scientists with wide experience in the area from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the United States. Healthy Cities will be invaluable to all those working at community level and in government with an interest in health, as well as students of health promotion. ... Read more

    Product Description
    Low-dimensional systems have revolutionized semiconductor physics and had a tremendous impact on technology. Using simple physical explanations, with reference to examples from actual devices, this book introduces the general principles essential to low-dimensional semiconductors. The author presents a formalism that describes low-dimensional semiconductor systems, studying two key systems in detail: the two-dimensional electron gas, employed in field-effect transistors, and the quantum well, whose optical properties have multiple applications in lasers and other opto-electronic devices. The book will be invaluable to undergraduate and first-year graduate physics or electrical engineering students taking courses in low-dimensional systems or heterostructure device physics. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful reference
    As a graduate student working on semiconductor devices, this book is an incredible reference. Davies only assumes about an undergraduate familiarity with the subject, making the text a great "bridge" from core textbooks to research papers. There have been many occasions when, upon not understanding a paper, reading a section in this book made everything clear.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's a pretty good book for the condensed matter physics nerds...
    I found the material interesting and I think it has a good balance of both theoretical material and practical information for experimental applications, so it should satiate most nerds interested in learning more about things like quantum wells, wires, and dots, approximation methods such as k.p perturbation theory, the quantum hall effect, and much more! There's a lot of focus on the optical properties of these low-d structures, which is good as there's really no better way to learn about the properties of matter than to study its interactions with light. HOWEVER, there's one thing about this book that drives me absolutely insane! It's a recurring annoyance, and pops up when he starts working with the Schrodinger equation and calculating the eigenvalues and eigenstates of electrons in electric fields. And that's his decision to use the letter "F" to represent the ELECTRIC field. His reason for doing this is to "avoid confusion with the energy." Well, aside from the fact that he uses a script "E" to represent the energy eigenvalues, which is easily differentiated from the normal "E", he really should have taken a minute to think about what might be confusing about using "F" for the E-field! Uhhhh, HELLo! Does the word "FORCE" ring a bell? Newton's second law, big motherfracking F = ma! For goodness sakes, don't ya think that might be a little confusing??? I know it's a niggling detail, but in the interest of full disclosure, I'm just letting the world know the pain and suffering I had to endure while reading the text. I don't wish it upon anyone, especially my fellow space cadets! :D

    1-0 out of 5 stars incomprehensible
    Possibly with strong background in Quantum Mechanics and Advanced Mathematics - the book is readable.Otherwise, the authors incomplete explanations make the book entirely incomprehensible.

    4-0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to quantum structures
    i read this book and it seems to be very readable. it explains the physics behind the quantum heterostructures in a lucid and tractable manner. i recommend this volume before reading the treatise by weisbach & vinter. those who want to start research on quantum structures will find this book as an invaluable resource. its comprehensive and almost exhaustive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A first taste of mesoscopic physics
    Readable introductions to mesoscopic physics are few and far between, many being either far too simplistic and naive or too mired in formalism. Davies gives clear and lucid discussions of such topics as electron confinement in quantum wells, the integral quantum Hall effect, quantum point contacts, and MODFET's/HEMT's. Although by no means extensive and in depth, Davies does point out simplifications and refers the interested reader to relevant references for more details. Overall, it is a balanced introduction.

    This book is a useful point of entry for undergraduates to low-dimensional semiconductor physics. Reading this book is good preparation for more advanced and specialized literature including: Solid State Physics vol. 44 ed. Ehrenreich and Turnbull; Perspectives in Quantum Hall Effects, Das Sarma and Pinczuk.

    During the 1990s there was an upsurge of interest in the application of evolutionary thinking to the study of human behaviour. Darwin's basic ideas concerning natural and sexual selection have been revised, refined and extended in scope. This book is a response to the need for a student textbook dealing explicitly with Darwinism and human affairs. It provides an overview of the key theoretical principles of human sociobiology and evolutionary psychology and shows how they illuminate the way humans think and behave. It should be of value to psychology and biology undergraduates but specifically those studying evolutionary psychology, animal behaviour and evolutionary theory, sociobiology, biological anthropology and behavioural ecology. ...

    Davy Crockett was born on August 17, 1786 in a backwoods cabin in eastern Tennessee. At age twelve, David learned how to shoot a rifle. When he grew up, he won most of the shooting matches he entered and became a well-known storyteller. No matter where he lived, he was popular. He was elected to three terms in the House of Representatives. After being defeated in the congressional election of 1835, he was ready for new adventure. He rode to Texas, where he fought and died in the Battle of the Alamo. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good history, not very exciting
    I got this book for my 5 year old son because he was becoming interested in Davy Crockett.This is a good brief history book, but not very exciting reading for a preschooler.He likes to read it every once in a while, but it's not something he wants to read over and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Teaching Aid
    As a primary grade teacher in Tennessee, I was rather surprised to learn that few of my students knew about Davy Crockett.And we live near the Crockett Tavern and 45 minutes from his birthplace.

    We were exploring our Appalachian hertiage and I introduced 17 kids to the king of the wild frontier.They were mesmerized.

    This book reads easily and follows a narrative format, so it's a great read aloud.We followed it up with a viewing of the classic Disney series starring Fess Parker, and then compared the two heroes.

    We also determined that despite the song lyrics, he was not born on a mountaintop, but rather the foothills.

    While I have used it with kindergarten and first grade, this book would also work wonderfully with older students and provide opportunities to compare and contrast, discuss exaggeration, the hero myth, and American History.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An introduction to the legendary life of David Crockett
    In the recent theatrical film "The Alamo" we were told that Davy Crockett preferred to be called "David."One of the elements of that particular movie version of the battle is how in the end the real David Crockett has to die as the legendary and bigger than life Davy.While the title of David A. Adler's juvenile biography of Crockett is entitled "A Picture Book of Davy Crockett," Adler calls the subject "David" throughout this colorful and informative introduction to the American icon's life.Adler's point is that the real David Crockett was a great frontiersman just like the legendary Davy Crockett.

    Illustrated by John and Alexandra Wallner with attractive line-and-watercolor artwork this book starts with the legendary birth of Davy Crockett and then provides the historical details.The focus is on key events, such as being hired out to a Dutchman who taught David how to shoot a long rifle, serving as a scout in the Creek War, and being elected to several terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.Young readers will learn as much about Crockett's two wives as they will about his falling out in Congress with President Andrew Jackson and his final days at the Alamo.Adler provides both of the conflicting accounts of Crockett's death at the Alamo without making a choice as to which is more likely to be true, which gives you an indication of the level of information the book provides (how the artwork erroneously suggests the mission of the Alamo had a roof from which defenders were fighting, when actually the roof was never completed until years after the battle in 1836).

    Many of the quotations attributed to Crockett in this book are taken from his autobiography, "Narrative of the Life of David Crockett," first published in 1834.The Crockett story ends with the publications of the "Davy Crockett Almanacs" that first appeared around the time of his death and which contained the useful information you would expect in an almanac plus a collection fo tall tales (e.g., Davy was born weighing over 200 pounds and had a pet bear named Death Hug)."A Picture Book of Davy Crockett" provides a solid introduction to his life for young readers who will find more of his history as well as the tale tales in lots of other books.This book is one in a series of two-dozen picture book biographies on famous persons by Adler (almost half of which are illustrated by the Wallners) from George Washington to Martin Luther King, Jr. and from Simon Bolivar to Florence Nightingale. ...

    I bought this book expecting, among other things, to be able to look up particular nutrients (iron, folic acid, etc.) and find the "super foods" that contain them.Unfortunately, this book is not organized that way.If you look up calcium in the index you find one listing, a passing reference in the back of the book.The book is organized for those who have specific ailments (stress, fatigue, cancer, joint problems, etc.).You can look up one of the ailments featured and find exactly what you're looking for- what foods to seek out, which to avoid, menus, recipes.The book may also be an o.k. reference if you want to look up information about particular foods (although the information given certainly isn't comprehensive),but look elsewhere if you're looking for a book more medical-scientific than holistic.

    This cookbook is divided into three main sections:

    The Superfoods
    The Recipes
    Protect Your Health

    Some of the food featured include blueberries, mangoes, melon, kiwifruit, asparagus, onions, sweet potatoes and celery. Nuts, seeds, dairy, eggs, meat, fish, poultry, herbs, spices and miscellaneous items like chocolate, tea and coffee are discussed in detail.

    Each recipe features an illness the foods help to cure. Like the Pumpkin soup helps with digestive, respiratory and skin issues. An Avocado, walnut and pear salad can help with fatigue.

    A few examples of the delicious recipes include:

    Banana and Almond Muffins
    Green Tea Bread
