Old Souls: Compelling Evidence from Children Who Remember Past Lives by Tom Shroder
Old Souls: Compelling Evidence from Children Who Remember Past Lives

CINDY PICKLE, August 25, 2009

it is amazing what some will try to pass off as journalism or science. what passes for a rational argument in this book is (get this) the lack of proof that the phenomena of reincarnation does not exist is
proof that it does. oh. this is a far cry from science. perhaps a cry for help? the author is clearly not objective, let alone (as he purports to be) skeptical. while i completely support anyone's right to author a book full of interesting anecdotes
and goofy speculation, to try and pass it off as anything more than that is kind of sad.

Cannery Row (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century) by John Steinbeck
Cannery Row (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

CINDY PICKLE, February 25, 2008

this story is a joy to read. the character of doc is based
on steinbeck's close friend ed ricketts, who by all accounts was truely admired by all. if you visit cannery row (monterey, ca.) today you
will see a bust of dr. ricketts with a lovely plaque dedicated to him by an entire commity who loved him.
it's located on the remaing small patch of train tracks
where dr. ricketts lost his life.
the book cortez is an account of steinbeck and rickettes' travels around the baja studying marine life.
if you ever go there take a copy of cortez with you. i did and it was awesome!
