Art of War by Sun Tzu/sawyer
Art of War

jengem, October 23, 2006

It's odd how a book witch is about war and fighting, can have such a strong place in everyday life. But this book is such a help for the battles that you fight everyday. This book is sometimes almost too strong- seeing that it is talking about ways to destroy others, but it is still a string guide to how to live each day.

Good art book, good info, nice art....extreamly basic. I think its a good book for start-out- mangaka. But it's just a start, after you get those ideas done, I would move on and get more of these books- they will be very helpful.

Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President by Justin Frank
Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President

(sigh) yet another bush bash book- I had hopes that any of it's info could be backed up- but none of it really was. You could say that anyone had mental peoblems. In fact we all do, it's part of being human- but this book was struggling to thow dirt. If your going to say anything in a book you need to back it up. My personal feeling is that real people with mental problems spend their time trashing others, and I didn't need to write a book to say that.
