Deaf Like Me Book Review

Several incidents that happened in the story were very interesting like when Lynn was able to say “Blue” after touching her father’s chest and then hers.

Values and Motives Questionnaire Book Review

Overall, I found the Values and Motives Questionnaire to be very interesting. Assessing one’s subjective feelings and value systems is not easily empirically proven. However, the idea of the test seems beneficial. However, I do believe the designers of the VMQ would gain more insight if they were to compare the results to various cultures’ values. Using the results from varying cultures will h...

Chapter two ends with Lewis concluding that the Tao is the sole source of all valued judgment and that nothing is intrinsically evil.

Shame Is Worth a Try Book Review

By reading “Shame is worth a try’’, I have to agree that something by being shame, may be a better punishment than sending people to jail. The example of a mother had to write a newspaper article when she was caught buying marijuana with her children in the car. For me, this punishment is effective. Even though they seem not making any sense, but they are cheaper than sending them to jail. A...

Wealth And Poverty Issues in Erik Reinert's Book

Generally speaking, the book is well written. Reinert organizes the book by using sub headings to separate the content and drawing examples from the economic history to support his theories, which make the book more understandable and reliable.

Book Report on the Blind Side

The text that I immediately thought of was The Dead Poets society and in particular Neil. The reason for this is in my mind I started to immediately compare the difference between Neil and Michael.

I think the reason that Neil committed suicide was loneliness, ...

Advice to Youth by Writer Mark Twain

Perhaps his best advice to his audience is to refrain from the recreational use of firearms. He points out that although the weapon may be perceived to be unloaded, there is always a chance that is not the case.
