Amazon.com Review
In Notes from the Cosmos, Gordon-Michael Scallion relates an engaging autobiographical tale of his transformation from electronics consultant to intuitive futurist. Once his psi powers become full-blown, he shares information and visions that come through from his "higher self." Much like Jane Roberts's groundbreaking Nature of Personal Reality, Scallion describes the architecture of the universe--time, space, consciousness, extra-historical facts about the human race, life on Mars, etc. Parascientific explanations on the psychic properties of gem stones and color are particularly fascinating. While many of his global predictions are either too vague (e.g., water is to be of prime importance), too far in advance (predicting an earthquake in L.A. at no particular time and then claiming when one occurs a year later it's the one predicted), too far-fetched (the U.S. becomes 13 colonies by 2012), or too obvious (predicting an earthquake in L.A. in which freeways collapse) to be particularly credible, there is a storehouse of insight and knowledge here that the silly predictions don't dispel. --P. Randall Cohan ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for inquiring minds
This book tells the author's own experiences with information not normally available to us in our waking life. It is intriguing and plausible and well researched.

1-0 out of 5 stars UTTER NONSENSE
This is utter nonsense.Don't waste your time reading his material.It is a shame that so many people are sucked into this nonsense.If you want to waste your money, go ahead, be my guest, but don't blame me that I did not warn you.Do your own research on the internet, before you buy any of his books.

Amazon should come up with a negative star rating for material of this caliber.

1-0 out of 5 stars Gordon Michael Scallion is....
Although gordon Michael Scallion is a decent human being, like most self-discovered or self-proclaimed "prophets" in this day and age they usually modify predictions to fruition, ignore failed predictions and hail realized ones; and whats worse, many of the realized ones had a 50-50 chance of coming true. Of course something "bad" will eventually happen: the real prophet knows when EXACTLY. LOOK UP PREDICTIONS ON "GOOGLE" FOR SUCCESS RATE ON HIS GUESSES.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
On page 173:
The purpose of prophecy is twofold. On one hand, it
allows those who read the signs to prepare for what
may come -- a warning. On the other hand, it
allows some who read the signs to change that which
may come to be.

5-0 out of 5 stars I could not put the book down..it's that good!
I'm already reading this book for a second time; I could not absorb it all the first time.Maybe I'll end up reading it a third time; feel good, nurished.

The "Notes from the Cosmos" has a genuine feelabout it; the material itself is not "new" as I've been familiarwith much of it.There is an account of Gordan's contact with his higherself who he calls his "Monad" ... where Monad is defined byanother (ie: Manly P. Hall) as the entity that manifests (projects) part ofitself on the earth plane (being pure and beyound defination).A directcontact with one's Monad would be pretty rare and unusual....and if it'strue...and I feel it is...then alot of the material in the book can betaken seriously. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Content is not Worth the Cost
Although this is purportedly written by a teen-ager, it is simple-minded and much more suited for 9-10 year old ADHD children.The problems are those of pre adolescents.As a parent of a 14-year old, I can attest that we have long been over this ground.If your child was diagnosed ADHD back in the early grammer school years, this is old hat for you and your teen-ager.There are no new coping and growing skills for your teen-ager in this book.

This paper-backed book is also very overpriced for the content.Five minutes of reading - not much substance.Skip it - there are better ADHD books for your teen agers.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book helped me see ADHD thru my childs eyes.
I am so amazed with this book that I decided to send a copy to my son's teachers and to his former elementary school. Written from the point of view of a teenager with ADHD, the book opened my eyes to how my own sonfeels about having and dealing with this problem. What surprises me also isthe fact that, after reading part of the book to him, I have caught my sonlooking thru the book on his own several times. I think he is relieved thatsomeone else knows how it feels to struggle with ADHD. The author trulyunderstands what it is like to have ADHD and to live with or teach a childwith attention problems. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Data Mining Techniques
Excellent coverage of various aspects of data mining.Popular as a textbook (reason for purchase).Plenty of graphics and illustrations; written in clear and easily understood English.

5-0 out of 5 stars Data Mining book you should read first
Be careful, the first edition is MUCH older.Make sure you get the current 2004 edition.

There are most recent books, but this one is still worth reading first. This is especially true is you are an analyst. Managers of analysts might enjoy Super Crunchers: Why Thinking-by-Numbers Is the New Way to Be Smart or Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning, but analysts will need much more detail.

This the best single volume on Data Mining you can buy. As one who mostly teaches methodologies, I like that all the major topics are here: neural nets, market basket, cluster, and trees. But there are also techniques that SPSS and Clementine (the software packages I use) can not do like "link analysis". Also, unlike Larose Discovering Knowledge in Data: An Introduction to Data Mining, the data preparation reads like preparing data for data mining, not a carbon copy of preparing data for statistics. Regarding this issue see the excellent Data Preparation for Data Mining (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems). I have pretty much concluded that a data mining book that does not make clear that data mining and OLAP are not the same is not a great book.This book has an extended section on just that.It is highly readable and comprehensive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for Data Mining
As a novice to data mining, I was searching for a book that would explain the concepts, NOT mathematical formulas.This text provides the reader with a clear and comprehensive explanation of each concept, provided examples, and the readability is excellent.Who should read the book?Anyone in business -marketers to CEOs; and college students at all levels who are trying to understand data mining concepts.The book is not for mathematicians who are searching for algorithms.I would rate this book 5-stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting book
I'm very interesting in Data Mining and i think that this book is a good introduction to this field. Thanks Amazon

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have book for your technical library
Anyone interested in automating and improving decisions should have this book. It is one of the classic works on data mining and well worth the read.
I really liked the book both because it is well written and because, although it drilled into a fair amount of detail about some of the techniques, it started each new section off at a high level. This allows someone without a statistical background, such as me, to read as far as I can in each section and then skip ahead to the next technique. This is a nice change from books that simply get more and more detailed as page follows page, preventing you from gaining an overview of the subject.
The book introduces data mining and a methodology for applying it, talks about some of the applications in "Marketing, Sales, and Customer Relationship Management" (as the subtitle puts it), walks through some statistical techniques and then spends the bulk of the book on various data mining techniques. It wraps up with a nice summary of how data mining plays with other technologies and with some practical advice on getting started.
One of the best summaries of where data mining fits is given early in the book where an enterprise is encouraged to:
- Notice what its customers are doing
- Remember what it and its customers have done over time
- Learn from what it has remembered
- Act on what if has learned to make customers more profitable
The authors point out that Data Mining is focused on the "Learn" stage or, as they put it data mining suggests but businesses decide.
The methodology section, and the subsequent notes that relate to applying these techniques in real life, talked about the feedback loops between steps in data mining - there is not a linear "waterfall" sequence of steps but constant iteration and learning. They also emphasized the importance of finding the right business problem at the beginning - start as someone once said, with the end in mind. This was reiterated when they quote Voltaire who said "Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien" ("The best is the enemy of good"). In other words, don't get hung up on trying to find the perfect algorithm, perfect answer. Instead build something that is good, that works, and learn and improve over time.
The authors made a big point out of the value of data mining for "mass intimacy", where you want to treat customers differently and there is a business reason to do so but where customers are too numerous to be assigned to staff. One of the issues they pointed out was that staff must be trained in customer interaction skills while also using all the data you have. The value of data mining in building a customer-centric organization cannot be overestimated. ... Read more

Product Description

The creative team behind the smash hit Crowns:Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats returns with a glorious tour of the spirit of Harlem—a collection of fifty stunning black-and-white photographs and unforgettable interviews that capture the heart and soul of one of the most famous and vibrant neighborhoods in the world.
Harlem, long known as the epicenter of black cultural life in America, is undergoing a radical change. An unprecedented infusion of hundreds of millions of dollars in development capital is revitalizing the community and transforming a cityscape marred by decades of poverty. In a striking show of exuberance, upscale shops arematerializing in once-abandoned buildings, new homes are popping up in vacant lots, and sheets of glass twinkle in place of grim, boarded-up windows. The economic renewal has lured a host of new people to the neighborhood—doctors, lawyers, investment bankers,and even a former president. But it has also posed a threat to many residents who have lived through the worst of times and now fear that they will lose their homes and livelihoods as boom times sweep in.
Spirit of Harlem documents this extraordinary period of transition through the words and faces of newcomers and longtime residents alike. There are reminiscences of Harlem during the 1920s through the 1960s, stories of friends and families gathering at churches, in local shops, and on the streets, and thoughts on what the future holds for the neighborhood.
Millions of tourists visit Harlem each year, and many people in the United States can trace their roots to this legendary area or have read about its remarkable history and impact on American life and culture. In more than fifty stunning portraits and essays, Spirit of Harlem brings all its splendor, rancor, drama, and glamour vividly to life.

The voices of Spirit of Harlem:

“The minute you step out your door, everything in Harlem is in your face. There is a beauty and a poetry in all that . . .” —Lana Turner, real estate broker

“Bubba and me thought Harlem was Heaven, all the lights and the sights. I asked my aunt, ‘Where do all the white people live?’” —Rev. Betty Neal

“When I came up from the subway, I said, ‘Oh man, I'm lost!’ But then I saw the Apollo and it blew me away. I said, ‘Wow, this is it! I’m in Harlem!’ I had never been to Harlem before, but I just knew I belonged here.” —Bryan Collier, author and artist

5-0 out of 5 stars Spirited Account of a Historical Neighborhood
SPIRIT OF HARLEM:A Portrait of America's Most Exciting Neighborhood
by Craig Marberry and Michael Cunningham is a beautiful book filled with two page pictorial accounts of famous and not so famous people and places that make up Harlem USA.Places such as the famed Abyssinian Baptist Church, the Harlem Hospital, to the Harlem YMCA, the Dance Theatre of Harlem to Hats by Bunn. It also serves as a historical account because the author and photographer delve into the heart and soul of Harlem's past that made it the elite capital it was for African-Americans during the Harlem Renaissance.SPIRIT OF HARLEM opens with a foreword by Gordon Parks, which sets the tone for this collection, and is followed by the author and photographer's insight into their first glance of Harlem.This collection of narrations also provides a sequencing of accounts by current and former residents of all ages and nationalities with candid black and white photographs of the subjects highlighted.Most photographs include a building, which serves as a backdrop or a tangible item that is featured in the story that follows. The first person accounts are encouraging, heartfelt and humorous as well as dismal and oppressive.

SPIRIT OF HARLEM showcases traditional and non-traditional professions such as a former activist, an art dealer, artists, a bookstore owner, a chess player, Chief Executive Officers, a choreographer, a nun, an opera singer, a real estate broker and a social worker. Other professions include a fencer, funeral parlor owners, an Asian gospel singer, a Caucasian graphic designer, hair braiders, historians, a journalist, a literary agent, a law firm partner, medical doctors, ministers and church deacon, a photographer, a restaurant owner and spa owners, along with a myriad of other professions.

One of my favorite narrations is by Isabel Powell, the first wife of Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.The former Mrs. Powell tells a humorous short story of their meeting, her occupation, his father's rejection of her and finally, her feelings upon their divorce.Another is Kevin Taylor, a producer for Black Entertainment Television and his recollection of the Harlem Shake, a gyrating dance that took the teens of Harlem and the country by storm.Finally, Ron Clark, a Caucasian, southern, male teacher who moved from the South to teach in Harlem; his tactics for winning parental involvement and the buy-in from his students.

Some people have a distorted perception of this island within an island but SPIRIT OF HARLEM validates the fact that historically and currently there is much to see, do and learn about Harlem.SPIRIT OF HARLEM is a treasured collectible that provides a journey into a rich past.

5-0 out of 5 stars definitely worth buying
This book has fascinating stories of ordinary and extraodinary people.For each person interviewed, there is a picture or 2 and a story told by that individual. The writer did an excellent job at capturing these stories in first person...i felt like I was actually sitting in front of these people and listening to them tell me about a moving incident, their childhood, reflections on life... Some of these stories made me laugh and some made me cry.It was a neat experience to "meet" all these interesting people.The photography is beautiful

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but the Best
As a Native New Yorker, It does me proud to see fellow New Yorkers talk about Harlem, past,present and future. I have enjoyed this book as well as Crowns(I own them both),and it is such a treasure to see Harlem at its finest. This book is highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, informative, and moving
Spirit of Harlem is a wonderful treasure of a book. Looking at the photographs and reading the interviews is like going on a journey. Your eyes take in every color and every shape; your ears take in every sound, every smell, and you can hear the people's voices, some ordinary, some famous, yet they all ring loud and rise from these pages.

I've never read anything like this book, one that forces you to laugh and cry at the same time. One that opens up your eyes to a world that you didn't really existed. It's a flavor-filled coffee table book bursting with wondrous history. And it truly embodies the human spirit as the voices of people from different races and cultures all share their common bond of living and/or working in Harlem.

The Spirit of Harlem is just that - a spirit of discovery that races through from the pages and causes you to learn things you've never heard before. Even if you've haven't been to Harlem, the book makes you proud and happy to know that such a place exists. This important and heartwarming book is highly recommended. ... Read more

Written by the chief military correspondent of the New York Times and a prominent retired Marine general, this is the definitive account of the invasion of Iraq.A stunning work of investigative journalism, Cobra II describes in riveting detail how the American rush to Baghdad provided the opportunity for the virulent insurgency that followed. As Gordon and Trainor show, the brutal aftermath was not inevitable and was a surprise to the generals on both sides. Based on access to unseen documents and exclusive interviews with the men and women at the heart of the war, Cobra II provides firsthand accounts of the fighting on the ground and the high-level planning behind the scenes. Now with a new afterword that addresses what transpired after the fateful events of the summer of 2003, this is a peerless re-creation and analysis of the central event of our times. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Perspective on What Went Wrong in Iraq
The war in Iraq has dominated the news for the past several years, and recent months have seen several books emerge dealing with events leading to the American-led invasion and its aftermath. Among the best of these books is Cobra II, by New York Times chief military correspondent Michael R. Gordon, and retired Marine Corp Lt. General Bernard E. Trainor.

Cobra II deals largely with the run-up to war, and America's initial military successes on the field. Well-written and thoroughly researched, the book tracks events leading up to the March, 2003 invasion of Iraq and ends with the reelection of the Bush Administration in 2004, recounting all of the major battles and most of our early troubles with the occupation. Showing the miscalculations on both sides that may have made the conflict inevitable, the authors bring a wealth of experience and insight to the task of making the chaos of battle intelligible to the outsider. And among the revelations is that few of our leaders ever considered the possibility that Saddam's posturing might be directed toward local enemies in the region--a failure that, given the course of events in the years since, is tragically ironic.

Initial Success and Future Problems
Disturbingly, they also show that many of our early successes were not quite what they seemed. Much of the vaunted push to Baghdad came over lightly-guarded terrain, from which the enemy had largely withdrawn in the face of our superior forces. Still, the seeds of future problems were there for all to see, and many of the soldiers in the field saw them. Unfortunately, however, the civilians in the Pentagon, and the commanders on the scene simply refused to listen to their warnings. The book also describes the lengths to which Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld went to seize and exercise total control over our venture into Iraq. Astonishingly, these lengths included freezing the one official in the Bush Administration with experience planning and executing a war plan, Secretary of State Colin Powell, out of any substantial role in pre- or post-war planning. Rumsfeld's Defense Department even went so far as to punish a general who committed the sin of candor by publically acknowledging that the enemy our soldiers were facing was different than the one they had war-gamed against. His subsequent marginalization within the Pentagon sent a sharp and unmistakable message to the rest of the uniformed military, signaling that their job was to follow orders, not to tell Congress or the public about any possible problems that might be lurking around the next dusty bend in the road.

Continuing Problems
First coming to press as our problems were becoming apparent even to most early supporters of the war, Cobra II also notes that the lack of available "boots on the ground" seemed to be largely responsible for the wide-scale looting and chaos that followed the invasion. Alarmingly, the book suggests that our misreading of the enemy and our inability to recognize and adapt to the changing developments on the ground reflect the dysfunctional nature of our military institutions under Rumsfeld. These problems include a prevailing assumption among many top military planners that invading Iraq in 2003 would be little more than a reprise of the successful Gulf War of 1991--problems that may not end with Rumsfeld's departure from the Pentagon.

Cobra II succeeds in translating many of our blunders into terms and concepts that the non-military layman can easily grasp. It gives us a candid, professional analysis of events before and since the invasion. And it provides the reader with a sobering assessment of what can go wrong when optimism and resolve come to equate doubt or skepticism with disloyalty.

This book gives fine detail to the ground plan implemented by the military in Iraq.Makes you grateful we had such a fine president in office while all of these events transpired. ... Read more

I'm a full time work, learning entrepreneurship in my spare time. I was thinking to take some courses online or in local university, but when I've discovered this book I stopped looking. I'm almost done and going through the book slow studying and analyzing every chapter. Author did in my opinion an excellent job in sequence of action needed for every entrepreneur.

Book contain detailed explanations, real life examples (!), diagrams and in addition templates downloadable from Trump website for free. Again for now, I'm using this book as a substitute of education and it's working for me.

I would say this book is a must for a beginner entrepreneur and very helpful for established entrepreneur.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, far from great
It's a great idea by Donald Trump to encourage people willing to pursue entrepreneurship to support them with specific 'how to do' books. Unfortunately, this books lacks depth. While the book covers many subjects and its basics it lacks an indepth analysis of issues. I'm not saying that it has to become academic, I just need more information on an individual subject. Anyone who has read 'Extraordinary Entrepreneurship' knows what i mean. It's approximately 3 times thicker but contains 50 times more information on the art of entrepreneurship.

Although I studied Entrepreneurism and now teach the subject at Waseda University in Tokyo Japan, I learned a number of things and synthesized a few things using Gordon's models that made it much easier for students to digest. This is the best book/text I know of to teach upper level undergraduates or beginning graduates students in management. I started an apparel company in 1989 and I wish I had this book as a guide. I made a lot of mistakes that I could have avoided using the information in this book. ... Read more

This absorbing text examines the American Civil War and its aftermath, exploring the crucial themes, and challenging many traditional views about the war that nearly tore this nation in two.

Attention is paid to the social aspects of the war and includes a presentation of what was happening on the home front while the war was going on. While This Terrible War maintains a clear chronological foundation, it is also concerned with developing the important themes that are necessary for a true understanding of the war and its aftermath.

Product Description
Readable in fifty-eight minutes: Traditional Eastern wisdom and real-life business experience come together in this brief and practical guide, which offers a step-by-step plan that will help readers adopt a more successful way of working and living.

KARMIC MANAGEMENT is a little book with a revolutionary message. It turns traditional business mentality on its head by stating simply that helping others become successful—suppliers, customers, even competitors—is the real key to success in life as well as in business.

Drawing from their own entrepreneurial experiences, the authors explain how, in eight basics steps that take less than one hour in total, readers can learn to apply KARMIC MANAGEMENT to meet goals, both personal and professional. Each lesson opens with a quotation from a Buddhist text and explains how it applies to life and work in the twenty-first century. The authors show readers how to identify the things that aren’t working for them, discover their most valuable assets, and use their new insights to improve the lives of others. To-do lists throughout the book provide practical tools and exercises, and real-life examples highlight the power of KARMIC MANAGEMENT to make dreams come true. ... Read more

If interested in uniting Western and Indo-Tibetan Buddhist views, I'd much rather recommend "The Art of Happiness" by the Dalai Lama, or almost anything by B. Alan Wallace, who's a master at bringing the two cultures together. This book had quite a few flaws to it. I would venture to guess that most positive reviews simply came from direct students of Roach, when 99% of the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist community doesn't take him very seriously. There's 2,500 years of books to choose from, and life is short. Don't waste your time on this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Real principles as taught in real Buddhism that work in real Business
If you want a direct route to success while being able to sleep soundly at night and still look your mother in the face and smile, this is the book to get.

I have read The Diamond Cutter previously also by Geshe Michael Roach and found it very useful. But I personally think this book goes a step further. It takes a different approach to the same topic. It gives a step by step approach to a sometimes hard to apply set of laws (Karma). As a student of Buddhism for many years I can safely say that this is Buddhism 101 but with a very straight apply it now without any messing guide built in.

I have also read the Tibetan Book of Yoga which gives a similarly direct approach to a very strong Yoga practice. This was also written by Geshe Michael Roach and Christie McNally.

So all in all great authors with a great way of simplifying a very deep subject, without leaving you needing more in order to apply it's principles.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Advice Overall but not Panacea it Claims to be
This book claims that karma is the underlying cause of all effects such that good deeds, thoughts and actions result in the same, and bad deeds, etc. result in the same, or basically the Eastern version of "what goes around comes around".As such, to succeed in business and in life, we need to strive for the success of others and eventually (guaranteed!) our success will come as well.I do believe there is some truth to this in general and falls into the same category as teachings like the Golden Rule or psychological principles like "you get what you expect".It's a risky proposition, however, to claim that always working for the success of others will always lead to your own success.(This seems like a fairly easy principle to test agains a test group that does not apply it.)The teaching is based on Tibetan Bhuddism, particularly the notion that the individual is inter-connected to all other beings and, as such, is really only helping themselves when they help others.

I definitely think it's an ideal to strive for; however, it can smack somewhat of The Secret principle of the Law of Attraction, where you bring into your life those things that you constantly think about so that everything that comes into your life is in some way a result of your own thinking.Clearly all the victims (and their families) of 9/11, the tsunami and any other major tragedy would beg to differ.The authors of this book give an analogous example to the Law of Attraction in a case study where a staffer named Frank is complaining and therefore, by the law of karma, his complaning must have been planted by a seed of your own complaining.All you need to do is stop complaining and that bad karma will be thwarted.Really?So what about the project (true story) where a love-triangle was getting in the way of success?Was that my fault because I was engaged in a love triangle myself (I wasn't) and therefore that bad karma will stop when I stop my own non-existing love-triangle?And what about those co-workers who have been complaining before the Karmic Manager arrived, or maybe even was born? And of course, there are the convenient loopholes in the teaching that explain why on the outside it may look like the karma theory is not working when it really is:The nasty manager who climbs up the corporate ladder? In his heart of hearts, he really has the success of all in mind; the nice guy who isn't getting the promotions and bonuses? Well, he's really not thinking about everyone else's succes, only his own; the bad breaks that come to you despite all your karma thinking?You naughty boy you planted bad karma seeds back in grade school, when you put a tack on the teacher's chair.It's this kind of nonsensical thinking that can turn potentially good advice (help others succeed and you will succeed yourself) into New Age trash.Take the good advice and throw out the trash.

And it's fun to see the authors apply their teachings in the last chapter where, after listing a bunch of free, good karma things you can get to pursue your degree in Karma Management, they offer a bunch of not free, and probably fairly expensive, courses and certifications, to get them some success.

5-0 out of 5 stars A New Economic Model for the World
Karmic Management is nothing short of a completely original New Model of Economy for the world.

New to us in the West and East stuck in the limited ideas of Capitalism, Socialism and Communism. This book - the ideas in it- melds all three perfectly integrating without losing or compromising in any way. The authors do not say this anywhere but it is what was immediately apparent to me and what I have been yearning for as long as I can remember myself looking at the economies of the world and wishing for a better way. It also brings together what is known as spirituality (ancient religion) and materialism without paradox.

It is clearly written and easy to follow. Not for the faint of heart as it requires a leap of faith.

I read it and started practicing it the very same day and began to see results the very next.

We can all relax and be grateful now, acquiring wealth in a responsible, dependable and open hearted way is at our fingertips.

5-0 out of 5 stars It Works!
Whatever your job--homemaker or corporate executive--this book gives you an easy-to-understand guide to creating a more successful and happier life for yourself and, as importantly, for others.

This book explains karma, "cause of the causes", in a simple, clear, and direct way.You can immediately put this information to use.

Bravo to the authors for such a beautifully written book! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Positive Read
When first released, this book was intended for the 80s youth of America. A time when pop culture was at the height of social decision-making. Yes, 80s had the BEST celebrities, TV Shows, & cultural phenomenons. And hey, I grew up mostly in 90s, & I know this. It's just a fact of life that CAN NOT be changed. Statistically & objectively speaking - 80s were the greatest decade in entertainment!

In fact, almost EVERY successful movie franchise in the last couple of years, is a rehash of 80s tv or cinema. For example- Transformers, Indiana Jones, E.T., Friday the 13th, Nightmare On Elm St., etc;

Ok, sorry for the rant on how great the 80s were... but you have to know how the times were to understand how a book like this would effect millions of children. Kids that saw Michael EVERYWHERE on tv, in magazines. Kids whose siblings were always talking about the King of Pop. Reading a simple book like this is probably what spawned those millions of kids to become fans & get a deeper knowledge of MJ the person.

The book is what it is, but it was about the right person at the right time!

1-0 out of 5 stars No grammy photos!
I borrowed this book from library. The book is thin, but did have some simplfied details of MJ and his brothers in early eighties, that you cannot find in MJ's books published later on. But the book was written for youth. If you are grown up you will find this book a bit boring.

The biggest problem is I cannot find any ' 8 pages of 1984 Grammy Award Photographs'inside!

1-0 out of 5 stars In the wrong category
This book is listed as a preschool book for ages 4 to 8.I was very excited to get an age-appropriate book to read to my preschool classroom for Black History Month.This book is actually for elementary school children.Perhaps they meant 4th grade to 8th grade?It's completely useless for my needs, and, in case you didn't notice, is from 1984.Darn thing is almost as old as I am.What a waste of money. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative, Encouraging, yet Realistic
This book inspired me to do what has so far been too difficult... to gain courage to manage my mother's aging and slowly ailing health.

Thank you to 2 superb, well-informed authors for their expertise!

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Long-Term Useful!
I purchased this book because a friend recommended it. I have been experiencing difficulties with my elderly father, who is 95. This book was most practical in advising me, in many aspects of caring for not only my father, but also myself: emotional/psychological, financial, safety concerns, long-term planning, etc.
I would recommend this book to anyone currently experiencing difficulties with eldercare, who to anyone who wishes to prepare in advance (this is what I should have done... prepared).

4-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Read
This book is truly a worthwile read, and the information within the book can be applied to many areas of life. I'd recomment this book as it's a real useful tool. I like the resource lists in the back, as well. Great authors!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful and realistic information!
Since my own parents have been experiencing a decline in their health during recent years, I have been looking for a valuable source of information on how to help them live life as best they can, and what coping skills I can use for my own life. This book proved extremely valuable in both these areas. I highly recommend it to anybody of the baby boomer generation, who may have aging parents. Even great for those whose parents are not yet showing declines in health... best be prepared! I refernce this book very often, still.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dave's Comments
Similar to other baby boomers, my parents are starting to show signs of aging. Fortunately they are both in good health and my brother and I haven't had to deal with many situations that can result from aging parents. Many of my friends have had to deal with these issues and it has been very difficult for them.
Parenting your Parents is an excellent book for anyone that is dealing with aging parents or may have to in the future. It has many examples of typical situations and offers practical advice and support. There are also many lessons for people of all ages, for many of us will be facing the same issues as we age.
The most powerful part of the book is the last section when one of the authors discusses problems he is addressing with his parents. It is very emotional and is an excellent way to end an excellent book. ... Read more

Product Description

In 2006 Philadelphia, graduate student Jonathan Love sued the organization that publishes the Law School Admissions Test. Love had attained average scores on the test, but claimed he should have been given extra time because he qualified as a person with a disability - and allowances provided by the Americans with Disabilities Act - due to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The case, which drew in author psychologist Michael Gordon as an expert witness for the defense, reached federal court and resulted in a precedent-setting ruling still as controversial as the disorder that triggered the trial. In this work, Gordon takes us into the courtroom and behind the scenes with attorneys and experts to look not only at this trial, but more than a dozen others that have involved ADHD or other psychiatric diagnoses, and the questions they raise, including what the real meaning of disability is, how malingering can be an issue with psychological disorders, and what the more far-reaching effects for the public can be if accommodations are provided to people who do not have a legally-defined disability. When does deference to an individual with a disorder like ADHD begin to invade the rights of the non-disabled?

Controversy fills these pages, from discussion of ADHD and the debate over its justifiability as a disability to public reactions regarding the ruling in Love's case and others. Comparisons and contrasts are also raised between the Love trial and earlier cases involving people claiming psychological disabilities who fought actions by The National Board of Medical Examiners, United Airlines, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine, and other organizations. Do the decisions help or harm disability rights and people with disabilities? Gordon offers the insights not only of a psychologist, but a seasoned legal insider who has testified as an expert witness at many of the trials.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Young Psychologists
Dr. Michael Gordon has created an object lesson in the perils of psychological assessment and wrapped it around an accessible and readable narrative. As someone who has made disability recommendations and determinations at the state, federal (SSI), VA, and DOD levels, and who has reviewed requests under the ADA in the a private sector, I feel that this book is essential reading for anyone involved in such work, but especially for behavioral health professionals and attorneys.

In a brisk read, this book offers an accurate and nonpartisan distillation of some of the complex motivations and nuances that can arise on multiple sides of a claim of disability under current law. It discusses these important topics in psychology with force and clarity:

--the tension that a helping professional feels between advocacy and impartiality

--the imperative that psychologists understand, and not overstep, their boundaries of competence

--the ways in which reliable and valid psychological instruments can be used to draw unreliable and invalid conclusions

--confirmation bias


In my mind, this text should be required reading for any 4th year graduate school seminar on psychological assessment and especially during post-doctoral training in neuropsychological or forensic assessment.Any psychologist who wants to, or does, conduct evaluations should study the lessons illustrated in this text to avoid falling into the undisciplined, uninformed, and lax practices that all too often masquerade as psychological assessment.

Thank you, Dr. Gordon, for offering us a rare glimpse at practices usually shrouded behind thick veils of privacy and/or confidentiality. ... Read more

It advocates that you become not just a good telecommuter, but a power telecommuter who accomplishes more, communicates better, and stays effective and visible when virtual.

--10 time management tips you can use today

5-0 out of 5 stars best book on telecommuting
I recently reviewed a number of books on telecommuting and distance collaboration for a research center (...) and Dziak's book was the best I found on telecommuting.

While some other books dwell too much on details of home office setup (which this book does cover thoroughly in ch 4) Dziak is by far the most insightful about the real challenges of telecommuting, which are social issues of staying in touch. The book gives prescriptive advice in easily-digestable forms.Dziak is quite fond of top-10 lists, but manages to pack a lot of good content into this somewhat gimmicky format.My most-reference part of the book was his '10 Ways to stay on the corporate radar screen' (p. 181).

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Guide You Will Need for Telecommuting
Michael Dziak's book is very thorough, and is a comprehensive guide on telecommuting.The check lists, forms, and practical tips are very usefull.This book offers so much for anyone operating a home office, it is a good investment even if they don't telecommute. I agree with other reviewers this is the desk companion or bible for telecommuters. I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hitting Home
This is a good book. The design is very approachable, and the writing is quite readable - especially in an age when people would *like* to explore telework, but don't quite know where to begin. From Telework 101 to senior-exec-level concepts, it explains much of what today's teleworker - and even the at-home entrepreneur - needs to launch a fully-functional home office, without losing touch or professional stature with the corporate community.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Power Telecommuter's How-To Manual
This book is a "must-read" for all potential, as well as current, teleworkers.It is packed full of tips and techniques for both the telecommuter and his/her employer.From setting up your home office to communicating with others, this book covers it all.I will keep this as a ready-reference.I recommend that all "driven knowledge workers" do the same.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice for the telecommuter.
Telecommuting Success is a great tool for the telecommuter.It is very easy to read and understand and gives tips that will help ensure that if you become a telecommuter you will be allowed to stay one.It shows you how to be successful and get the recognition for your work that you deserve, even if you are out of the office a good portion of the time. This is key to a successful teleworking relationship.

I highly recommend this book for any business that has or is implementing a telework program and would make it required reading for all teleworkers in that program. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
In this book Michael A. Gordon examines the causes and consequences of the tragic and bloody "Orange Riots" that rocked New York City in 1870 and 1871. On July 12 of both years, groups of Irish Catholics clashed with Irish Protestants marching to commemorate the victory of 1690 at the Battle of the Boyne that confirmed the Protestant Ascendancy in Ireland. The violence of 1870 left eight people dead: the following year, more than sixty died.

Reconstructing the events of July 12 in those years, Gordon provides a riveting and richly detailed account of the riots. He maintains that they stemmed from more than religious hatred or generations of oppression in Ireland. Rather, both years bear witness to a struggle between two profoundly different visions of the promise of America: a re-creation of European social classes or a form of life liberated from the constraints and stratifications of the Old World. These visions were enmeshed n the turbulent ideological and political confrontations arising from industrialization and newly found immigrant power under New York City's notorious mayor, William Marcy "Boss" Tweed.Gordon concludes by showing how the riots sparked a reform movement that toppled Tweed from power and led to the restructuring of city politics in the 1870s. ...
