    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer depicts the life of an imaginative, troublesome boy in the American West of the 1840s. The novel is intensely dramatic in its construction, taking the form of a series of comic vignettes based on Tom's exploits. These vignettes are linked together by a darker story that grows in importance throughout the novel - Tom's life-threatening entanglement with the murderer Injun Joe.

    Tonny says: "Great book, poor narrating"

    the narrator makes Tom sound like a little girl, that's really annoying.

    What would have made Attention! This Book Will Make You Money better?

    This book will only make the author and the publisher money, in fact this book will waste your time and money.


    What could Jim F. Kukral have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Do not expect this book to make you any money, and do not expect that it will teatch you how to advertice online, there is no ideas about how to use search engines or anything like that at all.


    Any additional comments?

    The author promises that you will learn “How to Use Attention-Getting Online Marketing to Increase Your Revenue” but it does nothing of the kind, however it does tells you how to annoy publishers and how to try to sell stories to magazines. It doesn’t say the least about how to market anything online at all, it does tell you some boring stories about how great the author is and what wonderful “childish”ideas he thinks he gets,

  • The Modern Scholar: Evolutionary Psychology I: The Science of Human Nature

    “Why do we do what we do?” In this thought-provoking series of lectures, Professor Allen D. MacNeill examines the surprising - and sometimes unsettling - answers to this most basic of human questions. The remarkable new field of evolutionary psychology takes a scientific approach to the evolution of human nature. Analyzing human behavior in relation to food, clothing, shelter, health care, and sex, Evolutionary Psychology proves an immensely stimulating exploration of human endeavor.

    James says: "Great primer on Evolutionary Psychology"
    "Not worth your Credit."
    Overall

    I had high hopes that this book would explain the basics about the subject, and maybe some examples of conditional thinking patterns or something similar, instead the book goes on and on and on about terminology and standards, and about this and that guy who made this and that theory about the subject, there is very little or close to nothing about the science of Evolutionary Psychology.

    Insted I Would recommend that you Read “How We Decide- Johan Lehrer” and “Predictable Irrational- Dan Ariely” and then form your own opinions about evolutional psychology

    One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

    Andrea says: "Terrific interpretion of an excellent story"
    "Great book, nice narrating"
    Overall

    its a classic and a must read.

    Based on the single largest neuromarketing study ever conducted, Buyology reveals surprising truths about what attracts our attention and captures our dollars.

    Erik Cornelissen says: "What we think we know versus how we act in buying."
    "How to stretch a 2 page pamphlet."
    Overall

    it's a rip off, and a lot of going around In circles, you lose attention every 5 minutes or so, and the actual results of the <<7 million dollar, cutting-edge brain scan study of over 2000 people from around the world>> or at least the very VERY small parts of it that we get to hear about would fit nicely in to a 2 page pamphlet, I guess they only show the real results to big corporations for a big price.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Rick Just says: "Dangerous Religion"
    "Not a self-help book for the doubtful believer"
    Overall

    If you want a book that helps you decide if you are a believer, or if you are an atheist then The God Delusion is not the right book for you, Its more like a debate book, Dawkins speaks about earlier discussions between him and various religious believers, however in part 2 there are a some helpful facts for the recovering religious addict, But it is more like a handbook for the already established atheists, I would recommend Sam Harris The end of Faith for the addict, and once you break free of religion and start to enjoy life for what it is, then you are ready to read The God Delusion

    A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

    Marius says: "Superbly whimsical"
    "It really is a short story of nearly everything."

    I love this book,and i love the narrator William Roberts :o)

    This is a book about 10 "Great Ideas". Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives.

    David says: "Exceptional synthesis of psychology and philosophy"
    "You must read this book"
    Overall

    It's not really a self help book at all, it's more like a guide to the human brain, if you ever wonder why you think you are so much different then everybody else, this book will explain why you are not and why you are almost exactly like the rest of us, it also tells us what brain functions make us believe in religion, and so much more, I rate this book a must read, even if you have no knowledge about brain anatomy and functions.
    The book offers some insight into early philosophy and it draws parallels to modern brain research, but that part is just publicity.
    Other must read books Phantoms in the brain Ramachandran, origin of species Darwin
