A Word From Our Readers

We love to hear from our readers. Check out what people are saying on Amazon and Goodreads about some of our most recent titles:

 

ArmourIn Pursuit of Pennants by Mark Armour and Daniel Levitt

“Tremendous book, essential reading for anybody who wants to understand how successful franchises become successful.” –Rob (Goodreads 3/28/2015)

 

 

 

 

 

CarasikCommentators’ Bible: Deuteronomy edited by Michael Carasik

“Dr. Carasik continues to make plain what can be difficult to work through – but, and as ever, with NO ‘dumbing-down’ of either the content or the learning process! Thanks so very much!” –Trou (Amazon 4/25/2015)

 

 

 

CriglerGet Me Through Tomorrow by Mojie Crigler

“An absolutely riveting read. Even though I have no personal connection to the medical issues involved, I found myself drawn in by Crigler’s harrowing account of her brother’s illness and her family’s courageous rallying to his support. Not a wasted word here: every sentence is beautifully chiseled, every moment perfectly distilled. It is a pleasure to read a memoir so artfully done — the story itself is inspirational, but the prose makes this a work of literature. It’s also a love story of sorts, between a sister and brother.” –Harley (Amazon 6/11/2015)

 

 

 

FittsMashi by Robert Fitts

“Fitts does a fine job of telling the story of the first Japanese major leaguer. Effectively relates his career in Japan, the minor leagues and the San Francisco Giants. Also describes the controversy over where Murakami would play in 1965 and his career after leaving North America. Fitts once again demonstrates his familiarity and knowledge of Asian Baseball.” –Craig (Amazon 6/10/2015)

 

 

 

Jamieson—Spring1865.indd

Spring 1865 by Perry Jamieson

“A great book. Dr. Perry covers a lot of minor battles that the history books only mention. He uses a lot of personal quotes from letters. A great read.” –William (Amazon 5/30/2015)

 

 

 

 

Queen of the Fall by Sonja LivingstonLivingston

Queen of the Fall is a collection of essays that weaves together the complex threads of life’s moments, building on both shared and personal history, and always seeking transcendence.

Author Sonja Livingston’s lyrical prose, as in her previous work, Ghostbread, is like the gift of fine chocolates…each sentence just waiting to be plucked and savored. Livingston’s talents as a ‘writer with old-soul wisdom’ shine through this collection. Right from the introductory reflections on apple-picking as a child (The Memory of Trees) straight through the summary observations in a chance laundro-mat encounter (Something Like Joy), this author manages to elevate everyday-dom — and, in doing so, encourages us to spend a little more time searching for the ‘higher humanity’ in our own life experiences. (Can you tell I’m a fan?)

Treat yourself to this collection. You may get lost for ten minutes or an hour or a day. But you’ll never regret it. It’s a guaranteed delicious journey through the compelling and wonderful prose of Sonja Livingston.” –Gregory  (Goodreads 5/5/2015)

The Kitchen Dweller’s Testimony by Ladan Osman

“What a gift Ladan Osman has given us with her debut collection The Kitchen Dweller’s Testimony. Ladan is both of and above this earth: her poems float above us as they make observations about the situations and life she lays out, as well as deal with the very tangible reality of living on this earth as a woman of color and immigrant. Her work is inquisitive, gently exploring the world around her. Her language is also full of play, teasing, joyful, blending both the divine and the secular. This is a wonderful read, one that I would encourage all readers to explore. ” –Fatimah (Goodreads 4/22/2015)

Game of Their Own by Jennifer Ring

“Excellent research! Great depiction of the facts! Every female athlete should read this masterpiece. Along with every parent of a little girl. A lot of women will identify with these baseball players. Even outside of the athletic stage!” –Lynn (Amazon 4/5/2015)
