  • Zen Through The Practice Of Archery
    276 words
    Zen In The Art Of Archery has got to be the most boring and draggy book I have ever read. Surprisingly, it is less than a hundred pages long because reading it, I felt like it was a thousand pages long! It is so wordy and complicated I could hardly understand what on earth Eugen Herrigel was writing about without my head throbbing endlessly. This slender book tells the story of Herrigel's efforts to learn about Zen, through the practice of archery, when he lived in Japan. In essence, he learns t...

  • Ten Pages
    712 words
    The Sun Also Rises: A Review [I cannot express to you how glad I am that I am taking this class. I am thoroughly enjoying Hemingway. The Sun Also Rises is one of the best books I've read in quite a long time. For a while there, I was, for God knows what reason, taking Physics and Chemistry and Biology. It is really an adventure to be back with books and words and reading. I am also amazed that I never could read more of Him when it wasn't an assignment. And how is it that when I am told to write...
  • Connection Between The Uses Of Sugar
    2,063 words
    Sweetness and Power is a historical study of sugar and its affect on society and economy since it was first discovered. Sugar has had a large impact on society and the economy that is not noticeable unless thoroughly studied. The following is an analysis of the work done by Sidney W. Mintz in his attempt to enlighten the 'educated layperson'. Mintz uses a very basic system for organizing the tremendous amount of data found within in the book. The book is divided into 5 chapters: 'Food, Sociality...
  • Strange Sphere
    745 words
    The Sphere by Michael Crichton Writer's opinion If up until now I have been saying about each book that it was the best book I have ever read, I was lying... because compared with this book they all come down to nothing. For four days I have been reading non stop all 370, or so, pages and that's a first for me in English or Hebrew. Highly recommended to all si-fi fans out-there. The Plot I find it hard to condense the plot of 370 pages to just a few pages, however, I will try my best. It all sta...
  • Will Justice
    829 words
    In A Time To Kill, by John Grisham, two drunken white men violently raped, beat, and nearly killed a 10-year-old black girl named Tonya Hailey. Her father, in a clouded rage, executed the two rapists with an M-16 on their way out of the courthouse. His vigilante form of justice was not well taken by many in prejudiced Ford County, Mississippi. On the other hand, he had lots of support from the black community and from any white person whom dared to step into his shoes. A young, thirty-something ...
  • Mail Order Book Sales
    5,629 words
    "CREATE YOUR OWN INFORMATION PRODUCTS!" Millions and millions of full sized books and small booklets are sold each year. Most are produced by the large publishing houses. However, there are also several million books sold every year by small, unassuming, one-person publishing companies. Many of these one-person publishers operate from a home-based office. And, surprisingly, some home-based publishers earn excellent incomes. (What's more, some are even becoming very rich.) In this report you " ll...
  • Writing On The Obits Pages
    1,521 words
    Death is the new black " Anyone who has ever hammered a nail into his nose owes a large debt to Melvin Burkhart. ' Some sentences yearn to be written. It is not hard to imagine the ill-suppressed glee with which the anonymous Daily Telegraph obituarist, writing last December in appreciation of this sideshow performer (known as the Human Blockhead because of his ability to drive a five-inch nail or ice pick into his head without flinching) flexed his fingers before starting on the one above, prov...
  • Gutenberg's Invention Of The Printing Press
    2,292 words
    Gutenberg's Press and the Transition from Medieval to Modern There are many ideas and concepts that facilitated the transition from the Medieval Era to a more modern, Renaissance society, but it can be argued that Johann Gutenberg's invention of the printing press was the most important factor to this change in Europe. The creation of the press was no easy task for Gutenberg; he was faced with many obstacles. However, once created, the press benefited people around the world for centuries and co...
  • Six Dinner Sid
    1,293 words
    Six Dinner Sid is a picture story book written and illustrated by Inga Moore in 1991. This work was originally published in Great Britain by Simon and Schuster Young Books Inc. and brought to United States by Aladdin publisher located in New York. It's dimensions are 8 by 10 inches high and it is presented as a paperback. It's current price is $7.00 dollars which I consider to be relatively inexpensive for a picture book with such characteristics and beautiful realistic illustrations. This pictu...
