  • The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values

    In this explosive new book, Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values, arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge. Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well-being, viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a "moral landscape".

    gerald says: "The book says what many feel, but fear to say"
    "Mind-blowing"
    Overall

    Although very tough on Catholics, I find the book makes compelling arguments and begins great conversations.

  • Decision Points

    Story

    In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for numerous historic and controversial decisions.

    Shirley says: "straight forward"
    "A well written book on poorly executed decisions."
    Overall

    n this book GW makes inspiring clams of fact like: He hid facts about his driving record (DUI) from the American People, not because he though it would hurt his campaign, but because he thought it would send a contradicting message to his daughters. (end paragraph)
    The real value in this book is that it gives the reader an understanding of the context in which the decisions were made. Although I disagreed with almost all of the decisions of the administration, I now have a better understanding of where he was coming from. (end paragraph)
    I think that people should read the book. After all he was the President and I feel that his two cents is important. I enjoyed reading his opinions on the stem cell debate and though it, though wrong, fair and sensitive to all sides. (end paragraph)
    In conclusion the book is just like the campaign. Full of gut decisions and free of data, piety over science and never stopping to think about consequences. Side notes: Nothing about Enron, the Afghanistan war starts halfway through the book and an awkwardness to the style in GW’s oration clearly suggest that he didn’t write much of it.

  • Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations

    Fed up with the Republican Right? Then you'll love Al Franken's scathingly hilarious look at America's largest talk show host and his conservative cronies. Funny yet uncompromisingly fair, Franken tackles the issues - and the politicians - in ways few have dared.

    R. Hill says: "Give us the rest of it"
    "Worthless"
    Overall

    This book contains little about Limbaugh. Mostly just a bunch of Al's rants and conversations that he had with rural conservatives that he met. Very little material to walk away with.

    Story

    Throughout history - from the bone-crushing age of antiquity to the sack-tearing modern era - there have been larger-than-life ass-kickers with a natural talent for unleashing their epic bloodlust on anyone who crossed them. They built empires, smashed armies, and ravaged civilizations for wealth, glory, and ultimate supremacy. Sometimes villains, sometimes heroes, sometimes criminally insane, they had one thing in common: They were all Badass!

    Saud says: "Not Bad, if You're into that Sort of Thing"
    "No good"
    Overall

    waste of time. This book is all about poor style and little history. Written and read for people who would have no interest in History. I can't imagine anyone simple minded enough to enjoy this book.
