"Doing Early Intervention ‘right’, and a lot more…" - by Sarah, Massachusetts
First, read the chapters in Part I, the authors provide an experienced and compassionate guideline for working with families that does more than ‘state the obvious’ for Early Intervention (EI) providers. These three chapters integrate the roles of interventionist and caregiver for a harmonious outcome based on communication and trust. The basic and meaningful premise for Early Intervention is introduced, with thoughtful attention to the intent and mission of the Federal Mandate to provide EI for children birth to three years old; and followed by chapters on Recommended Practices for working with families, and for facilitating skill acquisition.

Part II, Developmental Progression of Skills, is the ‘how to’ section of the book, structured on the primary domains of child development. The pairing of Behavior Regulation and Social Skills, Cognition and Receptive Language, Self-Care and Adaptive Skills create a context for treatment, and increase an interventionist’s, as well as a caregiver’s, understanding ... full review

"vivid insight into daily life among early modern England's "middling sort"" - by hmf22 (New York, NY)
As the blurb avers, A Day at Home in Early Modern England is fascinating. The chapters roughly follow the course of a day in a middling or affluent middling household, examining household activities with the support of numerous diagrams and illustrations. I'm fairly familiar with the topic, so I just skimmed the narrative, but I found it full of human interest on questions such as what order a young couple setting up a household bought their goods in (furniture first, then bedding, then tableware), how often an adult might play games for fun, and at what time of day teenagers, servants, and apprentices were least supervised. A very enjoyable read.

"Told by the men who played the game" - by Nesmuck (Glenns Falls, New York)
All the hype about this book is true. It's the best book about baseball ever written. And, it's told by the players themselves, warts and all. It's an oral history of the early days of the game.
Honus Wagner talks about playing third base with a first baseman's glove. One coach talked about sending the batboy down to the saloon to fetch a player when it was his time to bat. The book itself isn't so much a history of baseball with loads of statistics, it's a book about the players- 22 of them.
Even if you don't like baseball, you will be fascinated by the stories of the men who played the game.

"True Stories By Those Who Lived It" - by Jerry M. Bullock (San Marcos, Texas)
Texas Cowboys was taken from the files of the WPA Writers Project of the depression years 1930 - 40. Young writers, out of work journalist and housewives were asked to do first person interviews in West Texas with men and women who pioneered the Texas range and created the legend of the Texas Cowboy. In these interviews a picture of cowboy life emerges that rivals anything thought up by Hollywood. Truth once again is better than fiction. It is a five star book and has just been reprinted in a second edition by Texas A & M Press.

"Great to learn about successes; needs more learning from failure" - by Olga Be (Dallas, TX)
This book creates a good sense of what's happening in a technology startup in the early stages of development. While each company and founder are very different, overall the book helps the reader define common themes and illustrates important decision points for founders, because they come up so consistently in multiple interviews.

I think the book could benefit from a few interviews about startups that failed. (In the startup phase - by the time RIM or Lycos failed, they were very far from startup stage, so the interview is about their success, not downfall). Some of the founders that were eventually successful did mention their earlier less successful adventures. In-depth coverage of projecs that could have been successful but went wrong - that would add a lot of color to the book.

"Pioneer Days in the Black Hills is the real deal" - by K. L. Schott (California&South Dakota)
This man gives a real account of the real Deadwood and the events of the gold rush. Nothing is made up nor did he embelish. How refreshing. While reading it in the Black Hills, I am in awe of some of the places he describes. Though the topography has changed a bit, its fun to go see where the events happened. Some happy, some sad. Stories about the Sioux and Lakota Indians adds interest.

I would highly recommend this book for true facts of Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and Deadwood gold rush days
