A Word From Our Readers
We love to hear what our readers have to say about our books! Check out these comments from readers on Amazon and Goodreads:
“Very descriptive and informative with a touch of humor at every turn. I felt like I was in the book living the experiences right along with Clay. The life of an astronaut is one of awe and wonder and being able to read a memoir that gives the reader a glimpse of the life is quite an enjoyable ride.” –Lauren (Goodreads 9/13/2015)
“I’m so thrilled with this book, that I am giving it to fellow travelers, and to my own pastor to help her become a better story teller. Julie has a great gift of narrative: seeing the big picture, putting history in context, and then personalizing the dilemmas of the characters, and tying it to what happened, and to our own spiritual lives. Equally appropriate for Christians and Jews— this is a great reference book, interesting reading for the armchair traveler, and highly recommended.” –Katherine (Amazon 5/26/2015)
“What I feel clearly sets this book about is the amount of intriguing anecdotes Chick liberally includes intriguing insights, stories, and details that keep the reader’s curiosity piqued throughout the read. I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to know how and why the siege of Petersburg came to be and how it could have been altered if decisions had been different.” –Jordan (Amazon 8/9/2015)
“A definite must read for anyone interested in sephardic history.
It is clear that the author has done extensive research on the subject and manages to present it in a very clear and easy to read way. The facts are not only presented orderly chronological fashion, but the author experience in diplomacy becomes apparent in dept of the analysis presented.
I must also say, even though I’m Portuguese, studied several years Portuguese history at school and have since been interested in the subject, the book presents a coherent overview of Iberian history that has allowed me to significantly expand my knowledge. Learning new things that hadn’t read about before.” –Joao (Goodreads 6/30/2015)
“Good story about the search for the wreck of the Japanese Carrier Kaga which was sunk during the Battle of Midway in June 1942. There is a nice combination of the history if the battle with particular emphasis on the role of of the US submarine Nautilus and how modern electronic deep sea search technology is used to discover historic ship wrecks. The book is well written and a pleasant read.” –JMAC (Amazon 9/27/2015)
“This book adds to the large amount of material available on the Colville-Okanagan language. Professor Mattina is a first-rate linguist with deep knowledge of this language that he so obviously loves and has dedicated many years to study. It is also cool that the original sound files can be accessed for free on the internet. Anybody that loves languages can’t help but love this language with all of its complex phonology and morphology.” –Kevin (Amazon 10/7/2015)
