Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

Syd, March 21, 2015

Erik Larson has done it again. Dead Wake-the Last Crossing of the Lusitania puts all the rumors of the sinking of this magnificent ship to rest. Mr. Larson lays out a factual but extremely readable account of all the participants in this engrossing drama. Some facts are eye openers(especially the British intelligence) and some are so very sad.

WWl buff? This book is for you.. History buff? This book is for you. Lover of narrative nonfiction? This book is for you..

Factory Man: How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local - And Helped Save an American Town by Beth Macy
Factory Man: How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local - And Helped Save an American Town

Syd, March 10, 2015

This recommendation comes with great enthusiasm. The recommendation is for Factory Man by Beth Macy. The story is about the family-owned Bassett Furniture Company and how one member took on what he termed "the Asian invasion". John Bassett lll is unforgettable as are all those that are devoted to him, ( such as his factory workers), and some that definitely are not.

Beth Macy has written a wonderful book for our times. To truly understand the effect of globalization on industry, in this case the furniture industry, you must read this book..

Kudos to Ms. Macy and those that brought this book to fruition.

The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M Edsel
The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History

Syd, September 11, 2014

You've seen the movie, now read the book. It fleshes out the amazing men & woman whose race against time was heroic. The task of saving centuries of irreplaceable art that was systematically stolen by the Nazis, fall to these dedicated few. Without their steadfastness, the world of art and the world at large, would surely be a poorer place today. Future generations will stand in awe of these Monuments Men and their accomplishments.

Did you love Alexander McCall' "#1 Ladies Detective Agency? ". Then I have a series for you. Tarquin Hall, a British author and journalist, has written a series starring Vish Puri, his family, especially Mummy, his assorted servants & friends.. Mr. Hall provides a glossary for terms used in this novel that came in very handy, indeed. You will not regret making Vish Puri, India's Most Private Investigator, part of your reading pleasure
