Home: A Memoir of My Early Years by Julie Andrews
Home: A Memoir of My Early Years

Brian Simcoe, August 20, 2012

Oh Julie, my Julie! The delights and frights of your memoir were most exhilarating. In fact, in reading it, I was nearly transported back in time to that dusty and romantic world of vaudeville, the early days of Broadway, and the life of a young girl tossing about on the high seas of the theatre life, trying to find her bearings. Your humor made me laugh out loud. Your insight inspired me. Thanks for letting us take the journey with you.

Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto by Mark R Levin
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto

Brian Simcoe, January 1, 2010

This book stands above all others of the past decade. Mark Levin succinctly and successfully communicates the foundational principles on which this country was established, principles which demand to be articulated to a new generation. The book is not too long to be overwhelming, yet covers every key issue that has relevance in today's political climate. Easy to read and easy to love, this volume should be read by everyone living, legally and illegally, in America today.

Rome and Jerusalem: The Clash of Ancient Civilizations by Martin Goodman
Rome and Jerusalem: The Clash of Ancient Civilizations

Brian Simcoe, July 2, 2009

Martin Goodman does a fantastic job of making history engaging and relatable for the modern reader. He provides just enough distance for you to see the big picture as it unfolds, while still zooming in for close-ups on certain key figures. Its a wonderful study on the connections between these two fascinating cultures; I honestly could not put it down!

The United States of Arugula: How We Became a Gourmet Nation by David Kamp
The United States of Arugula: How We Became a Gourmet Nation

Brian Simcoe, September 20, 2008

This book is an eye-opening, mouth-watering adventure. I applaud David Kamp for writing this book; its a journey of food that everyone should hear. From coast to coast, it was fascinating reading about the evolution of the American food scene that, at times, parallels other cultural transitions in this country as we strive to form our own perfect union. And David's arousing and humorous language had me page-turning to the very end. You will have so much more appreciation for what you eat after you read this book.
