3.0 out of 5 stars The author has proved knowing of Forex trading concepts and basics, 29 Sep 2014
`Forex Trading' written by Mark Gray is an easy to comprehend presentation of the Forex trading basics.

The author has made an effort and included, together with informative text, the numerous illustrations, tables, and graphics that make this topic often seen as dry and boring much closer to the reader, understandable and interesting.

Mark Gray from very beginning of the book starts with explanations about some basic concepts such as what is Forex, who is broker, how the Forex market is functioning and many others. Therefore considering the length of the book, this manual is intended primarily for people who are beginners in Forex trading and thus book justifies its name. So if you already know the basics, this book certainly will not be interesting to you, though you will certainly have the opportunity to learn some nice little things you did not know.

The author with `The Basics of Forex Trading' has shown that he is familiar with concepts and basics of Forex trading, so it would be very interesting to see the continuation of this manual that will enable reader to dive even deeper into this interesting subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of those simple books that promote positive thinking and make us feel better, 29 Sep 2014
“30 Quotes for Powerful Living” written by Pradeep is one of those simple books that promote positive thinking and make us feel better.

The author in one place gathered statements from 30 men and women who are coming from different parts of the world, people of different occupations and time in which they lived; therefore, inside a reader will find quotes from Henry Ford, Benjamin Franklin, Martin Luther King, Confucius, Taylor Swift and many others.
As you can see, a bit unusual and incompatible society of people, but the author with his well-made presentation divided book into three main parts (Professional well-being, Relationship well-being and Personal well-being) and managed to made it not only possible, but also a very outstanding venture.

In addition to the quotes, the author after each of them offers in the form of life lesson a help how to apply this quote in your life and goal that needs to be pursued. Although some of the quotes are more and some less memorable, it’s certain that the author has done an excellent collection of smart life lessons to which you will often come back because this is not a book to be read just once. Also, taking into account its low price, this is definitely a book that can be recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of erotic and love poems, 29 Sep 2014
“Hypnopoetics” written by Phil Billitz is collection of erotic and love poems, or as author called them - hypnotic poems.

The author wrote in the foreword that he doesn’t consider these poems as some new literary form because from the days when poetry started to be written there were works which had a hypnotic effect on listener due to their rhythm, meter, rhyme and cadence.

Of course that these songs will not actually hypnotize listeners, and therefore the name is somewhat confusing or points in the wrong direction, but reciting or reading them you'll definitely manage to intrigue a person of the opposite sex. Therefore is not so important as they are called, but the fact that is a well-made love poetry with which if you know how to use, such as the verses that I bring below, you probably will have success.

„...Can you remember a time?
when fingertips touched your face
and the message that they traced was:
“How very precious you are to me”?
When you think of a love
that is all you could wish for
more than you expected
and all that you deserve;
when you wake in the morning
and lie warm in your bed
luxuriating in your body’s memory
in that closeness and comfort
in that place of dreams
where memory and fantasy
and hopes combine...“

But of course song like this alone will not be sufficient, women rightfully expect a lot more from the men...

3.0 out of 5 stars Will be understandable to every cook, 28 Sep 2014
“Healthy Cookbook” prepared by Blake "Miles" Roman is self-published book with recipes made for the simple reason, as the author said, to feature recipes that are amazingly flavorful and healthy. He wanted to create a cookbook that was priced conservatively where excellent food was the main vocal point, emphasizing that all the recipes in his book taste awesome and they are good for reader.

Roman’s cookbook contains a bit more than thirty dishes - appetizers, main dishes, side dishes and desserts - with a major emphasis on fruits. With every recipe, there is a picture of the finished dish prepared by the author for which it’s evident that is not beautified, but the original photo taken by the author.

The recipes are not sorted in any particular order and for each of them there is a short introduction and some personal comment by the author. The way the recipes are written avoids using particularly complex terms therefore it’ll be understandable to every cook.

Overall, “Healthy Cookbook” is a typical self-published work which brings some variation in terms of recipes, but nothing revolutionary new, except that I think the author made a mistake with the name of the book that would take the reader a bit in the wrong direction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can be read with ease and will probably motivate you for further study, 28 Sep 2014
‘The Psychology of Jury Selection’ written by Frederick Crouter is a short book that talks about one not so often encountered subject - the election of the members of the jury.

At the book beginning author somewhat humorously quotes two gentlemen with their comments “…Never forget, almost every case has been won or lost when the jury is sworn.” and “…Never accept a juror whose occupation begins with a P.” and thereafter at his 30-odd pages discusses various aspects important for selection of right people for jurors.

Claiming that each year juries decide thousands of cases, though the majority of these are not settled by juries, he emphasizes that predictions about juries frequently influence the decision of whether or not to pursue a jury trial. In the first part of the book he deals with an analysis of the pre-trial investigation of the jury panel and the data that should be collected, while in second part he speaks about non-verbal and body cues of the jurors.

Crouter’s book will be interesting, especially to someone who is not versed in this subject, but still somewhat gives the impression that it deals with general psychological topics that are applicable in various professions, and not so much related to the process of selecting jurors.

Given the work shortness, this is a booklet you will read with ease that will probably motivate you for further study. The book comes with one nice add-on that certainly increases its value – bonus software called ‘The Jury Selector’ which enables reader to go through the topics covered in this book the other way as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid introduction to this complex topic for beginners, 28 Sep 2014
‘The Ultimate Guide to Outsourcing’ written by Gordon Sharp is an interesting and concisely written booklet on outsourcing, which provides a solid amount of knowledge and manages to well present this concept to people who do not know anything about it.

As the author states in one place, he hopes that as reader will go through his book will be able to find a variety of golden nuggets, hidden gems and useful information about outsourcing that will help change reader’s business and life to something more pleasurable and meaningful.

The book is divided into six major sections (Understanding outsourcing, Jobs that can be outsourced, Crowdsourcing via online freelance sites, Tips to make the most of freelance sites, How outsourcing will make you rich and book conclusion) with each of them having a few smaller subchapters, but due to the shortness of its 70-odd pages, the author didn’t have enough space to go into too much depth, due to given ambitious goal of presenting a lot about this complex theme in a small number of pages.

Therefore, Gordon Sharp’s book is a solid introduction to this complex topic for beginners and will provide a good introduction to the research continuation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Retro work and book of jokes that will appeal to those who revealed the exciting world of computers, 27 Sep 2014
`69 things I do with my Wang' written by A Paz is a book full of jokes about Wang semi-portable computer, for many people today a completely unknown thing that is still only remembered by the older ones.

The author has written a funny compilation of Wang jokes, putting along some related photographs that make his book for the most of short time needed to go through, a funny adventure.

There are few jokes that are not so successful and some pictures are not of highest quality or `politically correct' but in general this is a nicely made collection of jokes that will make you laugh. Therefore A Paz book is an interesting combination of retro work and book of jokes that will appeal to the generations that have revealed the world of computers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written, intimate, yet interesting book about the country and time that today seem so far away, 27 Sep 2014
‘Always Going’ written by Gwen E Campbell and published by her daughter Alexis and son in law Richard is the story about a journey, a real one that lasted the whole life of the author, and one in the figurative sense on which this book will take its readers.

Gwen Campbell born 1933 lived life full of adventure until her premature departure in 2011, and as was mentioned at the beginning she traveled rather extensively as a young girl. ‘Always Going’ is the story of her life and adventures that covers many miles of Southwest, Texas and Oklahoma, all the way to California.

Gwen had been lot of different persons in her life – philosopher, poet, author of the children books and writer of the fiction books. Through this book reader will have the opportunity to recall another, now almost forgotten America in which Gwen lived.

Gwen is saying to reader that her memories are like movies or film clips with some of the pieces missing, but the scenes she recalls are sharp and clear. She was always fascinated by the things people choose to remember and the things people choose to forget. She chose to remember a lot and therefore this book provides an opportunity for reader to enjoy many of her memories. Going through the book pages, reader will be in the company of Gwen and her mother who travel relaxed through American Midwest - Texas, Oklahoma and California.

‘Always Going’ is a book full of memories, not only personal, but also about the country and time that today seem so far away and a bit like a fairytale. And precisely because of this reason, a beautifully written, intimate, yet interesting book from Gwen E Campbell can certainly be recommended to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will be loved by fans of zombie genre, 27 Sep 2014
This review is from: ZOMBIE BOOKS (Kindle Edition)
‘Zombie Books’ written by Bart Gnarly brings a bit different story about zombies; here they are not almost harmless wanderers from which you have to hide, but dangerous predators of which you have to constantly run.

The main character named Kyle Moore who is 20 years old is one of the few survivors that have to live in post-apocalyptic world full of zombies. Kyle is smart and capable young man who will become a zombie destroyer with a quest to clear his town of all the undead, to become a protector of the few of his fellow living citizens…

Bart Gnarly with his ‘Zombie Books’ delivers good zombie story that starts with rollercoaster action from its first page and doesn’t stop until the last. As could be expected from genre, a reader can found lot of blood and horror on book pages though author does it with style, where it’s necessary, and not because the purpose in itself.

Therefore ‘Zombie Books’ will be loved by fans of zombie genre, both by those who grew up on George Romero’s ‘Living Dead’ or new generation that each week are eagerly awaiting “The Walking Dead’ because it offers fresh story, good main character and lot of thrill.
