Sum forty tales from the afterlives by David EaglemanAs is often the case, I came across this book while looking for something completely different. The jacket is unremarkable. There is nothing about the title that would draw one's attention. But, somehow it drew mine; and here we are. As the title suggests, David Eagleman strings together 40 possible afterlives. The idea seems, at first, to be uninspired and wasteful. That is, until you read them.

ThePhysics of the Future by Michio Kakure are two ways of looking at this book. The first is to see it for was it is: a collection of predictions about the future of human life some 100 years into the future. The second is to see it for what it isn’t – or better yet, what it fails to address: the dark side of future technology.

book cover, Reading ReflexThis book by Carmen and Geoffrey McGuinness presents a comprehensive system that helps parents teach their children how to read, but it can also be used with teens and adults. The method gives detailed lesson plans that teach the necessary components of learning how to read. Students will learn all the necessary letter combinations needed to sound out words, and they learn these through patterns and not through memorizing rules.
