ABC Chinese-English Dictionary : Alphabetically Based Computerized "Click me to Order"

ABC Chinese-English Dictionary : Alphabetically Based Computerized by John Defrancis (Editor), Bai Yuqing (Editor), Victor H. Mair (Editor)

When you hear a Chinese speaker use a word and you want to look it up fast, this is the best dictionary for the job. I have both editions of the Oxford, but looking up words in ABC saves me time since it's strictly alphabetical. I recommend the pocket edition which you can take anywhere. It has the same entries as the desk size exactly, just reduced in size. Of course, it would be more useful if it also had an English-Chinese section. The publishers have announced that they have several other dictionaries based on this one in preparation: ABC Chinese-English English-Chinese Dictionary in both pocket and reference editions, ABC Comprehensive Chinese-English Dictionary in pocket and reference editions, Chinese Proverbs, Chinese Etymology, and others.

Daniel Boulud's Cafe Boulud Cookbook : French-American Recipes for the Home Cook "Click me to Order"

Daniel Boulud's Cafe Boulud Cookbook : French-American Recipes for the Home Cook by Daniel Boulud, Dorie Greenspan, Martha Stewart

Daniel Boulud is one of America's greatest chefs. Known for his inventive yet deeply flavored French-American food, Boulud has earned nothing but superlatives for his cuisine at Daniel and Café Boulud, his two Manhattan restaurants.

The challenge was to translate his dishes into recipes that home cooks could use and make their own--a test that he and food writer Dorie Greenspan have more than met. Daniel Boulud's Cafe Boulud Cookbook contains 150 recipes for superb food for every course and every season, and while the recipes, in their elaboration, clearly belong to a chef, they have nevertheless been "translated" by Greenspan with meticulous attention to what everyday cooks can manage when it's cooking they want to do. Those seeking a comprehensive view of Boulud's work, as well as cooks wanting to make food "just like the master," should be very pleased.

The book, like Café Boulud's menu, is divided into four sections: "La Tradition," which contains dishes influenced by the traditional cooking of Boulud's upbringing; "La Saison," a source for recipes prepared with the freshest seasonal produce; "Le Voyage," Boulud's world-cuisine dishes; and "Le Potager," devoted to vegetarian specialties. Each section encompasses a range of dish types; "La Tradition," for example, presents Onion Soup with Braised Beef Shank, Chicken Grand-mère Francine, Chick Pea Fries, and the Café's celebrated Chocolate Mousse Trio, among other offerings. Readers will also delight in Lobster with Sweet Corn Polenta in "La Saison," Morels and Pea Shoot Gnocchi in "Le Voyage," and Lemon-Lime Risotto with Asparagus in "Le Potager," among others. The authors also provide an exemplary glossary of ingredients and techniques, an investigation of equipment, and a list of sources for less readily available materials. Thirty-two pages of color photos show readers what they're aiming to achieve, and what can actually be done, with Boulud and Greenspan at their side. --Arthur Boehm

 Creating Shareholder Value : A Guide for Managers and Investors "Click me to Order"

Creating Shareholder Value : A Guide for Managers and Investors Should a company's management be most accountable to employees, customers, or management itself? In Creating Shareholder Value, Alfred Rappaport argues that management's primary responsibility is to company shareholders. First published 12 years ago, the ideas put forth by Rappaport have since become commonplace in companies around the world.

Rappaport eschews the most common measures of a company's performance, such as price-to-earnings ratios ("Cash is a fact, profit is an opinion"), return on investment, and equity measures, instead concentrating on developing a shareholder value approach that measures "value drivers" such as sales-growth rates, operating profit margins, and cost of capital. This revised and updated edition addresses the issues of corporate downsizing and the social responsibilities of business. It also includes new sections on the value of mergers and acquisitions and how to implement a shareholder value system. Both managers and investors alike will find this book useful.

The Quest for Value : The Eva Tm Management Guide "Click me to Order"

The Quest for Value : The Eva Tm Management Guide by G. Bennett, III Stewart, Joel M. Stern (Preface)

A comprehensive overview of the emerging school of thought on valuation theory and financial analysis. A very useful and enlightening book to read for corporate finance practitioners and for undergrads aspiring for careers in strategic consulting and/or investment banking. Anecdotal passages clearly illustrate the arguments presented in the book. Although quite opinionated, Mssr. Stern and Stewart convey a compelling argument that dispells traditional and current analyticals. Although the subject matter is corporate finance, Mssr. Stern and Steward display noteworthy talent in writing/narration style, surprisingly transforming a mundane subject into an enjoyable and even humorous book.

The Simon & Schuster Encyclopedia of Animals : A Visual Who's Who of the World's Creatures 
by Philip Whitfield (Editor), Inc Simon and Schuster "Click me to Order"

The Simon & Schuster Encyclopedia of Animals : A Visual Who's Who of the World's Creatures by Philip Whitfield (Editor), Inc Simon and Schuster

Dr. Philip Whitfield, lecturer in Zoology at King's College, London, has compiled this weighty, authoritative, and beautiful volume about the five classes of vertebrates: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes. An overview of each class serves as an introduction to its members and includes descriptions of the class's distinguishing features, history, and major families, plus cladograms showing the possible phylogenic relationships within the class. Because most readers are more comfortable with the traditional classifications of kingdom, phylum, order, etc., within the chapters themselves the families are arranged in accordance with that system. The section on each family, in turn, begins with a brief overview of the family, followed by representative examples of family members. Each included species is then described separately. The entry includes a full-color painting of the animal, the animal's common and scientific name, its size, breeding patterns, feeding habits, geographic range, and more. Relevant controversies of classification are also mentioned; for example, Whitfield notes that zoologists have recently decided to move the Lagomorpha (rabbits, hares, and pikas) out of the rodent order and grant them status as an order unto themselves. If you haven't been keeping track of who is related to whom, a detailed index with both common and scientific names alphabetized together can help you find the animals you seek. With its more than 2,000 beautiful illustrations and informative text on everything from Aardvark to Zosterops japonicus (a.k.a. the Japanese White-eye, a small green bird), The Encyclopedia of Animals is an excellent reference tool--and a browser's delight. --C.B. Delaney

Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (10th Edition) "Click me to Order"

Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (10th Edition)

The 1998 10th edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary marks the 100th anniversary of this distinguished and popular reference standard, and this is more than just an interesting statistic--it means that Merriam-Webster brings years of experience and reams of citation files to the creation of this latest edition. Improving on their last dictionary, they've added more than 100 pictorial illustrations and supplemented the synonym paragraphs with examples. Along with the English dictionary, which forms the heart of the reference, the editors at Merriam-Webster have included a brief introduction to the English language and a history of the English dictionary, a guide to pronunciation, and a series of appendices that include chemical element abbreviations and symbols, foreign words and phrases, extensive sections with biographical and geographical names, signs and symbols, and a handbook of style.

But getting back to the book itself--it's impressively comprehensive for a collegiate dictionary, with more than 215,000 definitions. Each item includes a pithy wealth of information, with first usage date, etymology, and pronunciation, and clear, precise definitions. In addition, there are often usage notes, synonym cross-references, illustrative quotations, variant spellings and pronunciations, regional labels, and information on capitalization, function, and inflections. Then there are the extra touches. Under bible, for example, there's a chart detailing books of the Old Testament, Jewish Scripture, Protestant apocrypha, and books of the New Testament. Under months is a table listing the months of the principal calendars--Gregorian, Jewish, and Islamic. And wonderful line drawings illustrate terms such as mackerel, lyrebird, hedgehog, and the ancient Celtic stringed instrument known as a crowd. All this makes it a valuable reference--detailed enough for editors and writers, accessible enough for students and casual definition seekers, updated with the new vocabulary of technology, and rigorous enough for the linguistic perfectionists. --Stephanie Gold

Cliches : Over 1500 Phrases Explored and Explained by Betty Kirkpatrick "Click me to Order"

Cliches : Over 1500 Phrases Explored and Explained by Betty Kirkpatrick

The cliché is " ... the bad guy of the English language. Furthermore it is the worst kind of bad guy--the bad guy that used to be a good guy before it suffered a fall from grace or, in the case of the cliché, a fall from freshness." Was this always so? Is originality of usage a classic value or a more recent one? In an exhaustive, 10-page introduction to Clichés: Over 1,500 Phrases Explored and Explained, lexicographer Betty Kirkpatrick presents a fascinating history of the classification of this linguistic category as well as of various aspects of language, illustrating its elasticity and ongoing evolution.

For the literal thinker, it may be satisfying to know that the word cliché comes from the French clicer, meaning "to stereotype" (a printing term), but a succinct and consensual definition? No can do. Clichés are, Kirkpatrick contends, "impossible to pigeonhole."

Designating such categories as quotations and misquotations, euphemistic clichés, catchphrases, vogue expressions, or buzzwords, Kirkpatrick has assembled 207 pages of commentary on the subject. For all of the wrath and ridicule expended on it, the cliché, to coin a phrase, is as old as the hills.

Newton's Telecom Dictionary 
by Harry Newton "Click me to Order"

Newton's Telecom Dictionary by Harry Newton

The resource for the telecommunications industry, Harry Newton's dictionary--which is really becoming more of an encyclopedia--is getting bigger every day. In his prologue, Newton is pretty frank about his twisted obsession with keeping his namesake resource guide up to date. He relates how technology--and subsequently terminology--is changing so quickly that he updates his book with 100 new definitions a week and reissues new editions every six months.

The dictionary lists a huge amount of jargon from all across the industry, including words associated with computer, IP, and carrier telephony; the Internet; intranets; local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs); Windows 95 and NT; NetWare and Unix networking; voice processing; wired and wireless telecommunications; ISDN and T1; and much more. Newton not only defines each term, but also explains how each term works or is used and even supplies the pros and cons of using a particular technology, when necessary. His definitions are unlike those in any other dictionary--technical or otherwise--because instead of being written in the usual highbrow technical lingo (which can sometimes further confuse you), they are written in colloquial English, as if Harry Newton were having a casual chat with you on the topic.

In addition to terms, the dictionary defines acronyms, company names, computer and telephony products and tools, and significant individuals in the industry. There's also no shortage of techie slang, such as Yuppie Food Coupons (defined as "the crisp US$20 bills that spew from ATMs everywhere") and SOHOs (Small Office Home Offices).

The book ends with an appendix that lists telecom organizations, special interest groups, and publications. Novices or less technical people in the field, such as salespeople, will appreciate the extensive yet easy-to understand explanations that Newton's Telecom Dictionary provides. Anyone who is even marginally associated with this industry can benefit from this comprehensive reference book. --Cristina Vaamonde
