Book Review: Fatal by Michael Palmer

Fatal by Michael Palmer My rating: 4 of 5 stars When I think of chemicals and waste products that cause human cancers, deformities, life-threatening illnesses and such, I think of Erin Brockovich and her quest to stop the release of hexavalent chromium into the…

Book Review: The Chemist byStephenie Meyer

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars As a former nerdy ex-science/biology/chemistry teacher, it’s always fun to read about the underdog who ultimately breaks up the plot to overthrow the government! This story will keep you guessing and turning pages…

The Supreme Court: Not about Political Party. It’s about our Nation’s Solidarity

Scientific American on Noisy Dominance. Chimps mimic Humans or is it vis versa?

Isaac Asimov’s Caliban by Roger MacBride Allen My rating: 5 of 5 stars I haven’t read a really good sci-fiction book for a long time and this one is definitely top of the line! Having grown up on the early I-Robot and other novels…

Book Review: Home by Harlan Coben

Home by Harlan Coben My rating: 3 of 5 stars I generally like author Coben’s writing, but this particular book just didn’t fit with my style. It’s not a page-turner. The plot seems quite disjointed, bouncing back and forth between my favorites and an…

Book Review: No Man’s Land by David Baldacci

No Man’s Land by David Baldacci My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is not the Author’s best work by far. The thesis behind the novel is excellent and I was absorbed with that once we got to the actual story. The first 200…
