Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Wicked Lovely

oregonmac, June 22, 2007

Wicked Lovely is a great summer read. My Goth daughter loved it and so did I. It has a fine message and some well-crafted and edgy characters, along with a nice blend of folklore that takes you beyond Disney and Froud into the world of Faeries and cold iron. I'm looking forward to the next one by Ms Marr!

Leadership and the New Science: Discovering Order in a Chaotic World by Margaret J Wheatley
Leadership and the New Science: Discovering Order in a Chaotic World

oregonmac, November 30, 2006

This book will blow your hair back, especially if you have ever been part of a "change initiative" in your work life. Meg Wheatley's observations and her clear style make you want to slap your forehead and say "Why didn't I think of that?" At the same time she challenges her readers to take the action and responsibility needed to move forward with a new world view that throws out the old mechanistic way of thinking and declares that humans and their organizations are "whole systems" and operate just the same as ecological and cosmic systems. A great read.

His Dark Materials Boxed Set: The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
His Dark Materials Boxed Set: The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass

oregonmac, November 20, 2006

This set of three books will get any child - young or old - thinking about the tough questions in life...but in a most enjoyable way! These are books for the ages, accessible as pure fantasy, but also profound in the way they address matters that saturate our conciousness and occupy our curiosity about what lies beyond the here and now. His Dark Materials is an adventure for the heart, for it's a love story, and a voyage for the soul, for it questions the fabric of existence. Read it! Read it! Read it!
