When Nietzsche Wept (P.S.) by Irvin D Yalom
When Nietzsche Wept (P.S.)

Susan Jacobson, December 10, 2012

I would never have thought that I would love this book--but I do! :) The plot is rather convoluted, but that does not at all detract from the book. A fascinating blend of fact and fiction--and if you have ever read Nietzsche, you should not pass this book up.

This is a book that I will read again. It will break your heart and then fill it with joy. Marquez is a master with words. several times as I was reading, I had to stop--just to repeat a phrase out loud that was so beautiful I had to hear it with my ears. I will now read anything else he has ever written. This book is one that nobody should miss reading.

Hell No: Your Right to Dissent in Twenty-First Century America by Michael Ratner
Hell No: Your Right to Dissent in Twenty-First Century America

Susan Jacobson, February 16, 2012

If you are an activist, you need to read this book. If you are thinking of becoming an activist, you need to read this book. If you are not an activist? Read this book, and you will become one! The Center for Constitutional Rights, an organization whose sole purpose is to protect our rights, helped produce this book. They and the authors have produced a classic--in the style of Rules for Radicals--that is sure to be used by many.

14,000 Things to Be Happy About: The Happy Book by Barbara Kipfer
14,000 Things to Be Happy About: The Happy Book

Susan Jacobson, September 7, 2011

Who can't use a little reminder of how many little things make life wonderful? I sure can, and this book is a great little reminder. Of course, there are many more things to be happy about--but this book provides a great starting point. Once you start to look at the little things that bring joy, your mind begins to find them everywhere. This book is great for anyone bogged down by life's troubles.
