5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!
This is a great book for toddlers and preschoolers. You just can't go wrong with Boz. My son, 2 1/2, loves Boz videos and this book really has helped us as we try to teach the idea of what sharing is. I greatly recommend the fun pictures and the story, short and sweet, but great for their short attention spans as well. ... Read more

Product Description
Charles Dickens's first published book, "Sketches by Boz" (1836) heralded an exciting new voice in English literature. This richly varied collection of observation, fancy and fiction shows the London he knew so intimately at its best and worst - its streets, theatres, inns, pawnshops, law courts, prisons, omnibuses and the river Thames - in honest and visionary descriptions of everyday life and people. Through pen portraits that often anticipate characters from his great novels, we see the condemned man in his prison cell, garrulous matrons, vulgar young clerks and Scrooge-like bachelors, while Dickens's powers for social critique are never far from the surface, in unflinching depictions of the vast metropolis's forgotten citizens, from child workers to prostitutes. A startling mixture of humour and pathos, these Sketches reveal London as wonderful terrain for an extraordinary young writer. "Sketches" is a remarkable achievement, and looks towards Dickens's giant novels in its profusion of characters, its glimpses of surreal modernity and its limitless fund of pathos and comic invention. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars First Literary Efforts of a Great Master
Sketches by Boz is a delightful collection of vignettes and stories which Charles Dickens first published in various newspapers and magazines, and then published in book form in 1836. All the elements of later Dickens are already on display here, from deep pathos to occasionally overdone bathos, to scathingly sarcastic humor, to gentle and affectionate spoof. Some of the stories are really extremely funny, andwildly entertaining. Perhaps not a book to be read straight through, but savored in bits, like a good box of chocolates. The Penguin Classics edition has excellent notes and all the original George Cruikshank illustrations. For a writer's Opus 1, this is quite an accomplishment. I found it very enjoyable.

5-0 out of 5 stars See the evolving genius of Charles Dickens emerge in his Sketches by Boz
Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is the greatest English novelist. We all know and love his novels. However, most readers do not read "Sketches by Boz" which is an early compilation of articles the budding author penned for various newspapers and journals. These sketches were written while Dickens was a parliamentary reporter in his early 20s.
Wnence does the name "Boz" derive? As a young lad Dickens gave his younger brother Augustus the nickname "Moses" in honor of a character in Oliver Goldsmith;'s classic novel "The Vicar of Wakefield." Young Augustus could not pronounce "Moses" correctly calling himself "Boz". Dickens decided this would be a good name to apply to himself as he submitted the anonymous humorous sketches he produced in profusion in the 1830s. We sometimes foget that Dickens was already an author prior to the ascension of Queen Victoria in 1837.
The Penguin edition divides the lengthy sketches into four sections:
"Sketches from our Parish:; :Scenes of London"; "Characters" and the best section "Tales" which are humorous short stories.
The book is illustrated by George Cruikshank a good friend of the author and along with Phiz one of Dickens best illustrators.
The various tales are of uneven quality. Do not read this book if you are seeking the complexity of a "Bleak House": "Little Dorrit" or "Our Mutual Friend." Do peruse them if you enjoy succinctly and well observed tales and sketches of what it was like to live in London in the 1830s as the city was becoming a vast metropolis filled with interesting characters. I loved Dickens sketches of what a London street scene was like in the bustle of early morning. His stories of life in the theatre were excellent as was his tour of Newgate prison .
If you have not read Dickens I suggest you begin with "The Pickwick Papers" and this apprentice work. Once you enter the magical, dangerous, hilarious wonderful world of Charles Dickens you will apply for citizenship papers in Mr. Dickens literary universe!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sketches by Boz [Penguin Classics edition]
In bookstores and libraries, literary classics are a dime a dozen.There are so many different editions available of each that the problem becomes one not of finding a good read but of selecting the edition of it that's right for you.Charles Dickens is perhaps the most popular of the past masters.All his books are enormously entertaining, whether he's writing about the tragedies of this world or its travesties.His eye for the ludicrous is faultless; his representation of it in print is perfection.He never fails to paint on the canvass in our mind, with a few simple strokes, a comic character that resembles someone we've met somewhere, sometime in our lives.His characters are so real that he needs to do nothing more than describe their appearance briefly and then let them speak for themselves.They speak with all the dignity and importance we all feel in ourselves, yet they unwittingly disclose for the reader all the foibles we all possess ... and mistakenly think known only to ourselves.Likewise, when introducing tragic characters, Dickens prefers to offer brief but unerringly accurate descriptions of their build, demeanor, and dress, and then allow their own words and actions to speak for themselves.His creations elicit mirth and misery in us without fail as Dickens masterfully plucks the strings of our hearts.

Unlike most writers, Dickens is equally at home in both the short story and the full-length novel format.This is because his novels were serialized in periodicals in their first publications.Only later were they edited for book form."Sketches by Boz" is an offering of Dickens's first attempts at writing for a living.It consists of 56 passages, most of which can be read in a single sitting of less than half an hour.These are divided into four sections: "Our Parish", "Scenes", "Characters", and "Tales".Of these, only the last contains fiction.The 44 nonfiction accounts are just as entertaining as their made-up brothers.In fact, I found them even more fun to read at times.Dickens only thinly disguised the identities of his victims while lampooning them, and as editor Dennis Walder so rightly points out, many of these descriptions would surely result in lawsuits for libel if they were published about public figures today.

This was my first experience reading a Penguin Classics edition of Dickens, and I was extremely pleased with it.The editor introduced "Sketches" with a few notes of academic and historical interest, a particular one of which I found to be of great interest as it finally answered a question I'd had for half my life: namely, where Dickens had acquired his nickname of Boz.But more important for today's reader of Dickens is the "Notes" section at the back of the book in which Mr. Walder defines Dickensian slang and explains the author's references to people, events, and places of early nineteenth century London.Much of Dickens's wit is lost on today's reader without such disclosures.

One of my favorite ways of reading a classic author is to collect all of his or her works and then read through them at a leisurely pace in the order they were written.I did this with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with the intention of noting how his style developed over the years.I was surprised to find an unexpected benefit of that project: I was transported to those times and felt as I imagine one of Doyle's contemporary fans must have felt as he read each new Sherlock Holmes story.After finishing Doyle, I immediately began collecting Dickens for a similar project."Sketches by Boz", being a collection of Dickens's first literary efforts, was of course the first in this series.The second Dickens book is "The Pickwick Papers", of which I have the Library of the Future edition.But after reading the Penguin Classics "Sketches", I'm determined to first replace "Pickwick" with the Penguin edition.The Penguin books are reasonably priced and well worth every penny. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY SELF ABSORBED
THIS BOOK IS ABOUT BRIAN BOSWORTH FORMER NFL PLAYER. THE BOZ TELLS US OF HIS GREATNESS THROUGH OUT THIS EGO TRIP BOOK. THE ONLY INTERESTING PARTS I FOUND, (AND THERE AREN'T TOO MANY) WAS WHEN THE BOZ WAS TELLING US ABOUT SOMEONE OTHER THAN HIM. THIS IS A GREAT BOOK TO TEACH KIDS HOW TO BE A SELF IMPORTANT, AROGANT, BRAGGERT AND BE TOTALLY FULL OF THEMSELVES AND OTHER THINGS. HE TAUGHT ME THAT HAVING A STUPID HAIRCUT, WEARING EARRINGS, GETTING DRUNK AND MAKING AN A--H---E OF HIMSELF IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING A HUMAN BEING CAN DO. A TOTAL PIECE OF GARBAGE.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Ever!!!
Is the Boz the best person to ever live? Without question.

How about the book? Well, I have read every book that's ever been written and this, bar none, is the best.

Support the Boz and buy 8 copies. And what a haircut!

5-0 out of 5 stars the truth hurts, and Bos is the one hurting you with it
The Boz is awsome.
his book, is awsome.

Confessions of a Modern Anti-Hero read like that of an Oliver Stone movie. you don't really want to know the truth cause your afraid at what might happen, but like Stone, Bosworth speaks his mind.

the story of the Boz goes from his high school days to his glory days at OU. Boz tells everything about his college playing days at OU, including his relationship with Barry Switzer.

Brian mentions the steriod incedent and how he felt the NCAA used him as an example. Brian speaks of how the NCAA "prostetutes" it's players because the players bring in money for the school and the program, but the player gets no money for himself. classic example of the pimping business.

Brian also speaks of his rookie season with the seahawks, he tells of his hatred for the golden boy of Denver, John Elway, and his hatred of Pete Rozzell.

Brian's hatred of Rozzell stems from the use of the #44 jersey. Brian wore that number since he was little, and now, the NFL told him that he couldn't use it in the NFL, even though other players had done it. from then on, it was the beginning of a "beautiful" relationship between the two.

and Brian doesn't have boundries in the book. he talks of drug use among other players, alcohol, women, football, the NCAA, John Elway, Switzer, etc.

and the one thing that people never understood was, that Brian was actually a good guy, despite his arogant, Terminator like look.

he had a 3.0 GPA, finished a year early if i'm not mistaken, never used drugs, and wasn't exactly a player. the drugs/steriods issue is covered nicely in the book. he was a man who had respect for himself, and took care of himself.

sadly, his career was cut short, but the image of the Boz lives forever. the clean cut kid from Oklahoma who would turn out to be an All-American LB for the OU and became a modern anti-hero speaks his mind in Brian Bosworth: Confessions of a Modern Anti-hero.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this Sooner!!
I only recently discovered this book and could not put it down.I have a lot of respect for Brian Bosworth.He is defenitely a man who speaks his mind.The book explains how his father groomed him early on to be someone great and to never quit.There are stories of recruitment tactics and college parties and so on.A great book for any Sooner fan or Bosworth fan like myself.GO BOZ!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The Boz:The Man and the Hard Hits
This is a good book about one of the best linebackers in college football in the 1980's. The Boz played for the Oklahoma Sooners and then went to the NFL Seattle Seahawks. This book tells about life in college and on the ball field for Brain Bosworth. This book also tells you about his views on the NCAA.This is a great book for all College Football Fans. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding preschool activity book
My 3-year old daughter is always begging me for "homework" to do when her older brother comes home from school with his. We have a number of workbooks I picked up from Target, etc. but I love that this one gives us the opportunity to talk more explicitly about God and the Bible while we work together on the activities. She loves them. The pages are bright and engaging; there's a nice variety of activities (some with included stickers), and lots of suggestions for extending conversations and complementary projects to do if you have the time (sadly, I haven't found the time yet...too busy writing AMazon reviews, perhaps...).

One note: so far, she hasn't been able to do any of the activities independently. Which has been fine for us since I enjoy doing them with her.

I'll be ordering the others shortly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great teaching tool!
My 3 yr old son received this workbook as a gift.We have used it together this year for at-home preschool.Designed as a Bible-based preschool curriculum, this book can be used to teach lessons for one child or even a small group.The curriculum is well-rounded and fun for ages 3-4.There are additional suggestions for crafts and projects to continue the learning beyond the lessons.My son loves this book and I plan to purchase one for my daughter when she's ready to start "school."I highly recommend this book to any parent who would like to get a feel for home-schooling and wishes to instill the love of God and His creation into their child.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but could use a few improvements
Whether or not your preschoolers love the big green bear, "BOZ and You and Christmas Too" offers up lots of Christmas fun.

Based on the popular BOZ Christian DVD series, this board book focuses on several aspects of Christmas, but most of them are secular. The book comes with three dry erase pens, and each two page spread prompts children to use the book for drawing or workbook activities. For example, the first page shows BOZ with a bunch of decorations for various holidays; "Can you circle the decorations used for Christmas?" the book asks.

Throughout the book, BOZ wraps presents, decorates a Christmas tree and wreath, hangs Christmas lights, helps build a snowman, thinks about his favorite Christmas food, and more. On the final two page spread, the book reads: "We celebrate Christmas because it's the birthday of baby Jesus! Something special twinkled in the sky over the manager. Connect the dots to find out what it was." This is the only mention of the true meaning of Christmas.

What I Like: My three year old adores this book! She loves activities found in it, and has as much fun wiping the pages clean and she does actually writing in the book. I appreciate that there are some learning activities, too; for example, there are matching games and a maze.

What I Dislike: My first complaint it that the pens are not made with washable ink. My daughter accidentally got some ink on her shirt, and despite my best efforts (and a lot of stain remover), I could not remove it. A warning that the inks aren't washable would be nice. I was also concerned my daughter would now think all books were good for drawing on. To combat this, I suggest reminding your child every time you use the book that only this one, special book is appropriate for writing in. Finally, some of the activities are beyond many preschoolers. For example, younger preschoolers will have a hard time with the connect the dots activity. However, bit of this is okay with me, since I think it helps inspire young kids toward new activities.

Overall Rating: Good.

Product Description
A mesmerizing look at the year when American athletics went corporate, villains replaced heroes, and sports stars became superstars.

Greed and excess defined the 1980s, and the sports world was no exception. Shifting from the love of the game to the love of money, athletes made the transition from representing honor and humility to becoming brash and branded. Capturing the stories of headliners who capitalized on this trend, Bigger Than the Game charts the rise (and sometimes spectacular fall) of four athletes over the span of one of the most dramatic eras in sports.

Meticulously researched, with stirring, you-are-there reporting, Bigger Than the Game assembles a cast that includes Jim McMahon, who took the Chicago Bears to Super Bowl glory despite his penchant for partying and his aversion to following the game plan; Brian Boswoth, the university of Oklahoma linebacker who mugged for the cameras while calling the NCAA a communist organization; Bo Jackson, who pursued promising careers in both pro football and baseball; and Len Bias, poised to ensure the Boston Celtics' dominance but died of a cocaine overdose just one day after the draft. Also packed with portraits of folk heroes such as "Refrigerator" Perry and Michael Jordan, Bigger Than the Game offers a riveting ride for every sports fan. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Political
In an effort to describe three of the most intriguing athletes of the 1980's, the author spends far too much time espousing his political viewpoints. While one can certainly intertwine the political and social culture with that of professional sports, I highly doubt Ronald Reagan's attitude was responsible for Brian Bosworth dying his hair, getting a mohawk, and turning himself into a highly marketable cartoon character. Despite successfully highlighting how these athletes came to epitomize the "decade of greed", I would argue that this had more to do with the evolution of sports marketing and athletes viewing themselves more like actors.

Athletes tend to be narcissistic and one can look back to any period in time and find several larger than life figures who elevated their status outside of their respective sports. In fact, during the 1990's through today, many athletes have become far bigger than the athletes of the 1980's (sans Bo Jackson who is arguably the best all round athlete of all time). While drawing a parallel to the politics of the day certainly is a relevant backdrop, I do not feel this needed to be rehashed throughout every chapter of the book. If I wanted to purchase a book detailing the errors of past political figures, I would have done so.

4-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Stuff!
A thoroughly enjoyable walk down memory lane for me.I recommend very highly Michael Weinreb's terrific "Bigger Than The Game." A look at how several athletes from the mid 1980's changed the way we as a society look at athletes, there is plenty in here even for folks like me who were around back then.Interviews with all the major players save Brian Bosworth helps immeasurably.

A really good book, worthwhile to any sports fan or of popular culture.

5-0 out of 5 stars one for the ages
This is a book about sports, but like all the best books about sports, it really isn't a book about sports. For those of us who came of age in the 1980s (or for thinking Americans of any age), this is a book about the profound cultural changes that shaped who we were then and who we have become: a generation of free agents for whom celebrity is currency, mass media is oxygen, and shrink-wrapped pop heroes are a drug of choice. Fascinating, and brilliantly written.

5-0 out of 5 stars Favorite sports book of the year
Thoroughly enjoyable. My favorite sports book of the year. As with Michael Lewis's The Blind Side, I don't think you need to be a sports junkie to enjoy it: The stories and connections to society/pop culture make it a fun read for even a casual sports fan. If you are a sports junkie, though, you're sure to be captivated. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great sampler
I read the Kindle edition of the book; it's a great sampler of classic Dickens without having to do the full-on 400+ readathon that many of his best works require. The most enjoyable aspect of the stories is the historic, authentic feel they give of London in the early 1800's. Dickens's keen eye for detail and his ability to describe it in a lively manner make this series of short stories a true time slip of a book.

The bubbling cauldron of 19th Century English society boils over the edges in these usually funny, always entertaining, often gripping sketches of people and places in London. His nostalgia for places and people being displaced by the economic growth brought on by the industrial revolution is strongest in his sketch "Scotland Yard," and the book is filled with a keen respect for the past without making apologies for its brutalities or injustices.

As with so many things written by Dickens, courting, drunkenness, elopement, hanky-panky, hypocrisy, true love, and human goodness feature prominently throughout. Stories such as "The Election for Beadle" presage the fuller parody of British elections that appears in "The Pickwick Papers," and his derisiveness in "Parliamentary Sketch" brings to bear much of his earlier experiences as a political reporter.

As in all his writing, however, Dickens's strength and power show strongest when he writes about the cab drivers, curates, hackney drivers, omnibus cads, chimney sweeps, circus performers, theater actors, gin shop waitresses, pawnbrokers, prison inmates, invalids, drunks, prostitutes, spinsters, lonely old men, unhappily married couples, abused wives, pensioners, milliners, and "shabby-genteel" people who made up the ordinary walks of life.

This book is a rare combination of humor, history, and pathos, all rolled into one. ... Read more

Product Description

When TLC was between albums, I had no way to release my creativity. One night, feeling put-out by my boyfriend and wondering about how much women had to go through to make a relationship work, I sat down and started writing poems. "Unpretty" was the first. Up until then, I hadn't realized how badly I needed to release what I was feeling inside. They were my thoughts from the heart, and my art.

The poems cover a whole range of topics: Love, relationships, heartbreak, body image, family, society, abortion, and many other things. They each mean alot to me, and I hope they inspire you, give you a different perspective on what's going on around you, or just help you relax. You'll find a little bit of me in these words, and maybe you'll find a little bit of yourself or someone you know.

I reached out to my friends, including my fans, while I was putting Thoughts. together and they realty inspired me and helped me figure out which stories to tell. Stories about the important people in my life, like my mom who's always been there for me, my family, my TLC partners Lisa and Rozonda, and those who have all helped me along the way. I've had to deal with some tough stuff, like my relationship with my dad, who left when I was three, my never-ending battle with sickle cell, the bad high school years, my self-image problems, and my fight to survive in this crazy music business.

Sharing these stories and poems has helped me face big issues in my life. Maybe they'll help you, too. Or maybe they'll give you a better understanding of who I am as a person. I can only express myself so much through my songs. On my own, though, I can let you into my heart and mind.

Thank you for allowing me to share my Thoughts with you.

Love, Tionne ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
This Book is fantastic. Tionne Watkins takes a moment of her time to share with us; her life, her poems, and so much more. I purchased this book when it first came out, but when I moved it got lost. So I repurchased it and re-read it. It was wonderful even after the 100th time reading. As a fan, every time I read Thoughts I learn something new, that I hadn't know previously. A definite, "must read." Even for non-fans. If you want something that will let you know a little more about Tionne. This book is a must, because this comes straight from Tionne herself. And her poem are amazing. Great read from cover to cover.

3-0 out of 5 stars These "Thoughts" could have used alot of work
When I hear the name TLC, Tionne "T Boz" Watkin's deep, raspy voice seductively working a groove come to mind. She's led the group through hits like Waterfalls, Creep, Diggin' On You, and Red Light Special. While her vocals are distinctive and captivating, I can't say the same about her poems. She set out with really good intentions, covering topics like racism, weight, sex, and child abuse, but they fall flat. VERY flat. Take "Hatred" for example. "Hate is evil, Hate is not good."I kind of got what you meant in the first line, but why repeat yourself? What follows are should, could, would lining up to round out a Dr. Suess sounding nursery rhyme. Unpretty, which would first show up as a song on TLC's Fanmail album, is the only poem that I have no complaints about. It's not as repetitive as the song and builds more on it's theme of self love and acceptance. Poems aside, the autobiographical sections are very interesting and reveal alot more about Tionne's life than I previously knew. From her battle with sickle cell anemia to her start as a TLC group member, it's a pageturner. Now if she could just get to a really good poetry class.

5-0 out of 5 stars good book
I remember borrowing this from a friend around the time it was released. I don't remember all the details cause it's been like 5 years but I remember enjoying the poetry and about her love for music.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good book

5-0 out of 5 stars Very thoughtful and inspirational!!!!
I enjoyed tionne's book of poetry and essays...as i was sitting reading her book i knew that she had to go through a lot of trials and tribulations to get where she is emotionally and spiritually. i'm glad that i picked up this book and read it.i feel so great now knowing that im not the only one who is going through hard times dealing with death, weight, insecurities with how i look and act, etc etc...and that life is too short. live life to the fullest and worry about tomorrow when and/or if it gets here later.

thanks tionne for your words of wisdom. tboz has a beautiful voice inside and out. :) ... Read more
