Silent Spring
Silent Spring Reviews

Review: One really should read this book to see how an opportunist like Rachel Carson can take vague statements and innuendo while mixing facts and fantasy until it is not only believable, but downright frightening! If you wonder how Greenpeace got so carried away that the original founder quit, and children are frightened and brainwashed by their parents and well-meaning teachers, read this!
It is impossible to calculate the negative effect this particular book has had on the world. This is where ... Read more

Losing and Finding Myself on the Camino de Santiago Reviews

Review: I enjoyed this because it is funny and the author is very honest about his quest. I know him as a comedian on tv. He relates very well how he encounters difficulties and he manages to overcome them. Makes me want to go on a pilgrimage myself. Read more

I hope I don't encounter anyone that follows these instructions while I'm visited the parks with my kids! Read more

Unofficial Guide to Disneyland 2019 (The Unofficial Guides) Reviews

Review: My wife, three year old daughter and I just visited Disneyland for the first time and found this guide to be incredibly valuable during pre-planning and while we were in the park. It's very comprehensive but easy to get through with a the right amount of content dedicated to a particular topic.

We found the chapter covering the age appropriateness or 'scary factor' associated with each ride to be very useful and the section regarding accommodations helped us decide where to stay. We didn'... Read more

Review: Short descriptions on the deaths of famous people. I would have liked a little more detail regarding the circumstances of the deaths, and less about the location of the graves. Still a great read and would recommend it to anyone! Read more
