1-0 out of 5 stars Boring!
I lent this book to my MIL before I read it but told her not to tell me about it or her thoughts on it until after I read it. I couldn't get passed the 2nd chapter. I found myself skipping pages that soon. I asked her if she liked it and she said she skipped a lot of pages also and found it to be very repetitive and boring. In my honest opinion it is one of the most boring books I have picked up. It just reads BORING!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The dark side of Amish
Very interesting look into the little know practice of rumspringa, during which the Amish allow their teenagers to experience the dangerous temptations of "the English."We usually believe the Amish are rather naive and simple; in truth, they can be just as wild as non-Amish youths.The clinical analysis tended to be rather dry, but the portraits of the Amish youth were fascinating.

2-0 out of 5 stars not really about rumspringa
I was very surprised that the editor of this book allowed it to be hyped as a book about rumspringa.A very small percentage of the book is about this teenage Amish tradition.The rest is about Amish life in general (farming, faith, etc.), which, while interesting, is not about the moral conflicts teenagers face.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not as inexpensive as you would think
I shopped around a lot before I purchased this book from a used book dealer.I needed more than one, so I had to shop around.I ended up buying more than a few.These books are in excellent shape, no highlighting, no writing in the books, and fantastic bindings.The base price was less than most of the prices in the Amazon listing.Even the publisher's price for a NEW book was less than most of the listings in Amazon.I find it sad that folks are selling books with higher prices than the publisher is charging for a new one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad
The real trouble with Algebra and Precalculus is that many of the topics are interchangable.This book does a fairly good job of covering many different topics.I wish some of the examples were a little better, but there a lot of solutions and answers in the back for the many problems at the end of a section.I think ideally, an Algebra II course should be very skill based, focused on "solving for x" in various situations.A little more concrete and a little less analytical.A precalculus course should be focused more on functions and function analysis.Also it should include trigonometry and topics typically covered in a calculus course (without differentiation or integration) such as polar coordinates, parametrics, and vectors.

4-0 out of 5 stars Algebra 2 textbook
I purchased the book with the intention of teaching myself all the core material in it. The material offers readers a limited number of examples per chapter per section. While these examples may sometimes make you wish for added detail, ultimately there is enough explanation to pull the reader through. Be sure you understand the previous chapter before moving onto the next or you will most likely get lost. In the end I was very satisfied with my order. Listen to me...if your at least decent in math you'll do just fine following this Algebra 2 textbook! ... Read more

Editorial Review

"It's funny how ideas are, in a lot of ways they're just like seeds. Both of them start real, real small and then... woop, zoop, sloop... before you can say Jack Robinson, they've gone and grown a lot bigger than you ever thought they could." So figures scrappy 10-year-old philosopher Bud--"not Buddy"--Caldwell, an orphan on the run from abusive foster homes and Hoovervilles in 1930s Michigan. And the idea that's planted itself in his head is that Herman E. Calloway, standup-bass player for the Dusky Devastators of the Depression, is his father.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Review by Chris L. of "Bud, Not Buddy"
Hi!I just finished reading BUD, NOT BUDDY by Christopher Paul Curtis. It's a very good book I must say and this is why I give it a 5 star rating.
4-0 out of 5 stars Siji John's"Bud, Not Buddy" book review
"Bud, Not Buddy" was a heart-felt book. Ten-year-old Bud Caldwell was the main character of this book. His mother had died when he was six years old. He had a suitcase with his personal things in there. Nobody was allowed to look in there without his permission. He also wrote a book for himself. It was called,"Bud Caldwell's Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life and Making A Better Liar Out Of Yourself." Bud's mom never mentioned anything about his father. He had a flyer in his suitcase that had a picture of a band on it. He was pretty sure that the person who played the bass was his father. Herman E. Calloway was the guy's name. Since he had nowhere to live, he went in search for Mr. Calloway. Bud's destination was Grand Rapids. In order to get to grand Rapids, he had to get to Hooverville, Flint. He was already living in Flint. He just had to find Hooverville. Hooverville was a place for people without money. When he got to Hooverville, Bud made a new friend named Deza Malone. She later became his girlfriend. She gave him tips for living life without money. Bud's ticket to Grand Rapids was just a train ride away. Unfortunatly, Bud missed the train. He had to walk from there. He was stopped by a man named Lefty Lewis. He offered Bud a ride to his home. Since Bud didn't have a home, he had to use his book to get him out of this mess. Bud told him that he lived in Grand Rapids and that Herman E. Calloway. was his father. Lefty Lewis fell for it and took Bud to Grand Rapids. Bud was finally at his destination. He went inside the building where the band practiced. He confronted Mr. Calloway and told him that he was his Bud's father. Mr. Calloway was mad at this and replied with a no. Bud didn't believe him. At the end of the story, Bud finds out that Herman E. Callowaywas actually his grandfather. I would have never guessed this ending until I read the entire book. It was very surprising. Bud Caldwell came looking for a home and ended up being with his long-lost grandfather. He struggled through some difficult times but he succeeded in the end. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Finally, someone who tells history like it was, without the old textbook gloss that's put so many students into premature naptime and misinformed the few who stayed awake. Davis corrects the myths and misconceptions from Columbus up through the Clinton administration, and shows that truth is more entertaining than propaganda. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Misses many points
Yes, there is a disconnect between what is taught what is real sometimes, although I had a problem with this book being a bit too persuading. Personally, I think exposing students to the founding documents as early as possible is critical.A better choice for students might be "The Elementary Common Sense of Thomas Paine: the famous pamphlet, Common Sense, adapted and illustrated for all readers." Reading the founding documents first can be a good first step to avoiding misconceptions in American History later.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Marxist parody of US History
This was absolutely the funniest parody I have ever read. The eager repetition of "The Supremem Court interpreted the 14th Amendment to give civil rights to Corporations" as the SINGLE WORST argument to ever come forth from that body was one of the funniest lietmotif's in this hysterical parody of US History told from the standpoint of an over-the-top Marxist. Worse than cowboys were BUSINESSMEN!! Eugene Debs and WEB Dubois were the ONLY white americans who were not evil!
2-0 out of 5 stars Too Politically Correct
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to notice the anti-White preaching in this book. Not what I expected at all because this is how History is taught today and this is supposed to be an answer to that. I was expecting to learn a lot more - most of the things mentioned I already knew. I graduated from high school in '89 and then got a Bachelor's degree from a state college that wasn't in History. Perhaps this book would be useful to those who have less education. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fact: The Best AP World History Prep Book
This is the best AP World History prep book on the market. It not only gives a fairly comprehensive review of the history required for the test, it includes comparisons, contrasts, and trends to focus on in the text. The review is concise as well, as opposed to Barrons. DO NOT PURCHASE BARRONS. I repeat, do not purchase Barrons. About half the book is meaningless details that do not help at all. It is way too long, boring, and is pretty much impossible to study from due to its length and extraneous details. The Princeton Review book presents only meaningful information and is easy to memorize. The practice tests, however, are not representative of the real test. I took the AP World History Exam on May 3, 2006---it was far, far easier than Princeton's practice tests, and I found the test itself insanely easy. Using Princeton as your sole study source, as well as thinking critically while reading--making comparisons and contrasts, analyzing trends, etc.--will certainly earn you a 3, and most likely a 4. I read a 1,000 page textbook throughout the year and by the time the test rolled around, I remembered nothing from it. This prep book, which I studied intensely, was basically my only source of information for the test; however, it was a whole lot of information. I received a 5 on the exam thanks to this book. I didn't use my crappy Barrons or unbelievably horrid Kaplan book to study. Just the Princeton Review book. Study this book throughout the school year, know it like the back of your hand (for the most part), and you will breeze through the test.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sort of prepares you
I just took my AP exam this week, and I had used this book to help me prepare. The review information was pretty good, especially the compare and contrast and the change over time. But the sample tests were far off from the real one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too General. Test questions were not similar to the AP test.
I took the AP History exam on May 3, 2006.The book is too general.The practice test questions were not helpful. Friends of mine who had the AP History exam prep book by Barron's said there were questions on the AP exam that were very similar to the practice tests in the Barron's AP History test prep book. There were none in this book. I do not recommend this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book for learning Physics
I took AP Physics B in my Senior year at high school and had a HORRIBLE teacher. BY the time the AP exam was a month away, we had only learned about 30% of what we should have known for the exam because of our incompetent teacher.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not AP material
If you are taking Physics B, buy a Physics B book. If you are taking the C test, buy a C book. But please, don't rely on this book to study. This book does not qualify as a study guide. The questions are way too easy compared with actual AP questions, and though the explanations are clear, the material does not go deep enough into the subject. Especially the section on Fluids. The B test goes A LOT more into detail.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good review
My AP Physics teacher recommended this book to our class and he ended up having around an 80% pass rate. This is a great review book. The diagrams and problems help you out a lot. I ended up with a three, and if I hadn't just had the AP Bio test 20 minutes before, I probably would have gotten a 4. This book is great at condensing an issue that you want to review. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
I thought these books, just like the others, were amazing! They added plot and depth and mystery to the storyline and put me on the edge of my seat! I can't wait for the next books!

1-0 out of 5 stars The Gloom Loons... FOR REAL!!!
"The Trouble Begins" was wonderful. "The Situation Worsens" was okay. "The Dillemma Deepens" were dull but interesting. THIS???????? It's a disgrace!!! I could put up with Lemony Snicket's talking for a while but this is insane!! I had to skip whole pages just to keep awake!? I mean WHO, WHO with the right mind wants definitions, stupid stories and lectures in an ADVENTURE BOOK!? But not just that, it becoming SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! At first, the Series of Unfortunate Events was wonderful, full of adventure and mystery and exiting parts. Now, what I see is count olaf giving up on the children and the children going with a STUPID organization and DULLL characters and etc. and etc. and etc. I was so disssapointed with "The grim grotto" that I don't want to even see a page of "The Penulitamate Peril" that is the hardest to say. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY OR EXITEMENT FOR THIS PIECE OF JUNK, IF YOU LIKED THE BAD BEGGINNING, THE WIDE WINDOW, OR EVEN THE DULL MISERABLE MILL, THIS IS NOT THE SEQUEL FOR YOU. AS I SAID THE GLOOM REALLY LOOMS!!!

Editorial Review

Since the beginning of the school year, high school freshman Melinda has found that it's been getting harder and harder for her to speak out loud: "My throat is always sore, my lips raw.... Every time I try to talk to my parents or a teacher, I sputter or freeze.... It's like I have some kind of spastic laryngitis." What could have caused Melinda to suddenly fall mute? Could it be due to the fact that no one at school is speaking to her because she called the cops and got everyone busted at the seniors' big end-of-summer party? Or maybe it's because her parents' only form of communication is Post-It notes written on their way out the door to their nine-to-whenever jobs. While Melinda is bothered by these things, deep down she knows the real reason why she's been struck mute...Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars review for speak
Anderson has a very interesting writing style in Speak. She sets her book up to be like a report card, each section signified by the marking periods of a school year--starting with first marking period to forth marking period. Each of the four sections is a chronological explanation for why Melinda is the way she is. Within the "marking periods" the sections are indicated with a title telling the reader what she will be talking about. The passages are written much like a play format. Anderson is very descriptive in her text. With each dialog is a bracket explaining what the person talking is doing, wearing, or gesturing, much like she is directing a play and the actors need to know how to stand or move. Her language is sophisticated yet simple. She writes to an older audience. She uses pronouns like "IT," talking about Andy and "Them," to address her parents. Her usage of the pronouns allows the reader to feel the separation from the characters. By calling Andy "IT," she is letting the reader know that he is a character she would like to forget and could care less about. Calling her parents Them, excludes her from feeling like she is a part of them. Anderson spells words wrong so it seems as if it could be a diary and the narrator, Melinda, is reflecting upon what happened but cannot spell. It allows the reader to connect to Melinda better.

5-0 out of 5 stars a haunting, painful read
This book is painful, but then again, so is teenage life for many young people.Those who have felt alone, scared, confused and without a voice will not only feel Melinda's pain, but her triumph as she finally finds her voice. However, it is the people who never felt like her at all who need to read this book most of all.Maybe it will help them understand the trials that many of our young ones are going through so that we can find ways to show them that they are not alone.

5-0 out of 5 stars It'll Shake You Up and Set You Down Again
When I began this book, I didn't like it.It was so negative, and absolutely depressing.There's a reason for that.It's about a girl who is suffering through depression over something that happened.It's written in first person, so you feel everything she feels.Her depression really gets into your head.You go through everything--from the depression to the recovery--yourself.At the end, things start getting lighter, freer, and after the rest of the book, it's such a release.I do recommend this book, for people who are going through depression themselves.It has mature content--probably not suited for the average 12- or 13-year-old--but I recommend it to people--even young people--who have gone through or are going through the same things.The ending makes up for all the negativity throughout the book. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars As a 38 year old man, I liked it.
I listened to the audiobook... I usually become annoyed with books with skip to back story alot. It didn't bother me much here.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not for HP Fans
I read somewhere that this book is good for Harry Potter fans. Well, no.
3-0 out of 5 stars Endymion Spring
It starts out as a great read, then falls flat....so disappointing! I was expecting it to be a great book like "Inkheart", but alas, it was not. "Chasing Vermeer" is better as is "The Wright 3".

Choosing a college has seriously been driving me crazy.I've gotten a ton of brochures from universities all over the country, which hasn't helped me since all of the literature basically looks the same.
