The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas L. Friedman
The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century

Spielman, May 27, 2008

Thomas Friedman brilliantly lays out the new world order: Globalization. Despite not having an economic background, Friedman clearly explains how globalization is affecting the world. Through his extensive travels, Friedman also has a unique perspective into global phenomenons and he brings this viewpoint to the forefront in his book.

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

This book will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I read this with my son a few years ago and we both loved it. Especially interesting immediately following a trip to Rome.

Wit's End: Advice and Resources for Saving Your Out-Of-Control Teen by Sue Scheff
Wit's End: Advice and Resources for Saving Your Out-Of-Control Teen

Spielman, May 27, 2008

I really wish I had found a book like this when my son was acting out as a teenager. I felt that I had no options and had no idea where to turn. Now that I am beyond that position, it is interesting to me to see how Sue Scheff approaches the issue of troubled teens. Through experiences of her own and those of her daughter, Scheff starts the book with moving stories and then continues to talk about options available to parents who are at their Wit's End.

For any parent with a troubled teen, this book is a MUST read!
