Review/comment: This story is really a great one. I can hardly belive that India has such a social standing like that before. I never thought it's that difficult to live in that place. You know the story is so great that I even used it for my book report. I hope everybody could read the story.

Review/comment: I read Rudyard Kiplings Kim book and found it very hard to follow and understand. The book boreded my mind most of the time and I couldn't stay focused. I don't think I'll read this book again.

Review/comment: Kipling did a lot of work developing some of the characters and their relationship to each other and India. It was an adventure novel but I think that aspect of it was secondary to learning about the characters. It was a great book and a great author.

Title: An account of colonialism?
Review/comment: I'm currently writing a 6 page essay on this novel with very little to substantiate my ideas other than a rather thorough analysis of Kipling's jingoism. I have made the point that Kim could possibly be a representation of India's conflicting cultures (British Secret Service in which he excels and the life of spiritualism that he serves so obidiently) but some of the characters don't tie in with this theme. Does anyone have a theory on the Red Bull in the Green field?

Subject: A Great Fiction Book
Review/comment: I was told to read The Second Virgin Birth to read by a friend who said it was good. Before reading it I thought that it was most likely another Da Vinci Code. Boy was I wrong, it is so much better. The characters and events are so believable that one wonders when this is actually going to take place. The chapters are short and that was a problem for me. I wanted to stop reading the book and begin it again tomorrow, but as I would finish a chapter, I would look ahead and think, well it's only 7 more pages and I would read that, try to put it down and do the same thing over and over. In other words, I wanted to find out what happened next more than I wanted to go to sleep. It was a fast and entertaining read that held my attention the whole time. The fact that Mr. Taylor made his major character, Mary, a sweet little girl, go insane at the age of six, completely caught me off guard and I had to adjust all of my preconceptions of how I thought this character would play out. The book was one, "I did not see that coming," after another. In most reviews I say that I don't want to tell the reader too much and spoil the ending, however in this book, I can't tell you too much because story has several very original new thoughts running throughout the book and I don't want to give any of them away. For once, I felt that I truly got my money's worth. I bought this book at Amazon.com

Subject: New Book Promises Freedom From ALL Disease
Review/comment: "Win The Ultimate Battle for Your Health: The Lifesaving Legacy of Tom Tasseff" by Thomas Tasseff ‚??WE are capable of freeing ourselves from diseases such as cancer by taking our health and our lives into our own hands via simple, natural, and inexpensive means and as nature has intended.‚?Ě In this book, Tom Tasseff shares with us what he has learned over a lifetime and has effectively used to fight off cancer and other diseases. Read this book and learn the life-saving secrets that are actively being withheld from you... secrets that will enable you to take an immediate and active part in curing ALL disease and in living a longer, healthier, and happier life. This book is for YOU and the people you love. This book will have widespread appeal to a broad spectrum of diverse readers including those interested in: Health, Medicine, Disease Prevention, Cancer Cures, Longevity, Self-Help, Alternative Medicine, Herbal Medicine, and Humankind‚??s perennial struggle against the big business-big government-big medicine-big money ‚??machine‚?Ě. Currently, the population in the United States is estimated to be about 300 million people. One hundred years ago, only 1-in-150 people were afflicted with Cancer. Statistics now show that one out of every three people contracts Cancer during their lifetime and could very likely be one out of every two during our lifetime. Therefore, Cancer and how to successfully combat this disease should be a top priority and of interest to everyone because 100 to 150 million people are expected to contract cancer in their lifetimes. This is a death sentence. But it does not have to be. Heart Disease is the second largest contributor to mortality, while diabetes, along with its complications, is the third leading cause of death in the United States. This book should also appeal to people in other English speaking countries such as the estimated 60 million people in the United Kingdom, 33 million people in Canada, and 21 million people in Australia. My intention in writing this book is to share with you what I have learned and employed in winning the ultimate battle for my own health as based upon a lifetime of good living, from conducting my own in-depth research, and from the experience of overcoming my own health obstacles. My legacy to you is to provide you with the ammunition that I have found available and have used to improve my own general health and happiness. It is my hope that as you read this book, you will do so with an open mind and find both the information and the inspiration to continue to do your own research, to seek appropriate and cooperative professional medical health care consultation as necessary, and to make informed decisions that will lead you to a healthier and happier life. PRESS RELEASE: New Book Arms Readers to Win The Ultimate Battle for their Health August 1st, 2008, Denver, CO and Hamburg, NY ‚?? A new book from author and alternative healing expert Tom Tasseff is giving hope to millions of Americans who suffer from a wide range of the most challenging maladies known to medical science: cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more. Win the Ultimate Battle for Your Health: The Lifesaving Legacy of Tom Tasseff (Outskirts Press) arms readers with the cutting-edge research into natural remedies and cures that big pharmaceutical companies don‚??t want them to know about‚??as well as the real causes behind major diseases. Topics include eye-opening information on the key role in cancer growth played by probiotic bacteria and parasites; exciting cancer treatment options; herbal and nutritional supplementation to fight heart disease; and non-surgical ways of conquering diabetes, asthma, multiple sclerosis, liver disease and more. ‚??There are natural cures for virtually every disease; and these cures can be brought about without the use of drugs or surgery,‚?Ě writes Tasseff. ‚??Federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as well as allied pharmaceutical companies are all working hard to prevent us from learning about these natural preventatives and cures. It‚??s all about the money!‚?Ě The book is a personal effort by Tasseff to share knowledge that helped save his own life. In 1999, Tasseff was diagnosed with bladder cancer, becoming part of the growing and alarming number of Americans who are affected by cancer each year. Then, Tasseff did something most of them don‚??t: He investigated a storied herbal supplement called Essiac, and integrated it into his treatment regimen. The results, Tasseff says, speak for themselves: ‚??...ten years later, my annual medical checkups and blood work have repeatedly found me to be free of any detectable cancers,‚?Ě he writes. Targeted to those already diagnosed, or anyone simply interested in staying on top of innovative preventive health strategies, Win the Ultimate Battle for Your Health backs up its claims through cited research. It‚??s knowledge no one can afford to dismiss: According to recent statistics, one in three will contract cancer during their lifetime. Cancer deaths have risen from one in 150 people just 100 years ago and may very well reach one in two during this decade. Through it all, Tasseff‚??s engaging prose breaks down complicated biological processes into easy-to-understand English, while telling a fascinating narrative about how alternative medical discoveries are revolutionizing treatment options, even while Big Pharma doesn‚??t want anyone to know about it. Win the Ultimate Battle for Your Health: The Lifesaving Legacy of Tom Tasseff is now available through Barnes & Noble Books and Barnesandnoble.com A few excerpts from the manuscript: "Presently, there is a revolution in how serious illnesses, such as the cancers, are treated. Older patients are finally learning that the doctor is not always right and that there are other options available. Younger patients are coming of age already knowing that several professional opinions and the exploration of various treatment options are both appropriate and necessary. People of all ages are learning about the so-called ‚??alternative medicines‚?Ě, which include herbal and nutritional supplements and other natural remedies, and which now offer us an abundance of hope. Sharing this hope is my legacy to you." "Despite numerous medical discoveries published in scientific journals, only a fraction of the potentially life-saving benefits of this medical research ever becomes available to patients. Because of this, human beings suffer and die while there are proven effective therapies at our disposal to alleviate or cure our conditions. A major reason for this lag between scientific discovery and treatment in medical practice is that today‚??s physicians are overburdened with patients. Doctors just can't keep up with all of the newly published scientific information that would allow them to give their patients the very best of medical care." "There are natural cures for virtually every disease; and these cures can be brought about without the use of drugs or surgery. Federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as well as allied pharmaceutical companies are all working hard to prevent us from learning about these natural preventatives and cures. It‚??s all about the money!" "Each day, more of us discover new approaches and natural cures for the diseases that plague us. As this new awareness continues to grow, the giant pharmaceutical companies will have less control over our lives and our health with their highly over-priced drugs competing with less expensive, readily available, and God-given natural treatments and cures." "The big money establishment persecutes and discredits doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine as well as other non-mainstream health care providers because they are at risk of losing their large profits which have been built into prescription drugs, unnecessary surgeries, and other more expensive and dangerous health care solutions." "The 40 billion dollar per year cancer industry is the second largest revenue producing business in the world. The average hospital bill for treating cancer ranges between $250,000 and one million dollars. If the general public knew the truth and did something about it, these mega-profits could be reduced to practically zero. This is why the medical profession and the government cannot afford to let us hear about effective low-cost cancer treatments or the fact that cancer can be entirely eliminated by safe natural means." "It behooves big business, in economic ways, to keep us in the dark regarding the truth about our health and well being. After all, they have overpriced and often- ineffective medicines, as well as unneeded surgeries and other medical procedures they want to sell us. They do not want us to know that WE are capable of freeing ourselves from diseases such as cancer by taking our health and our lives into our own hands via simple, natural, and inexpensive means and as nature has intended." "Campaigns are perpetrated by the pharmaceutical industry to sway people away from safe and effective natural remedies. Their goal is to convince us that their manufactured drugs are the only treatment options for illness and disease. Pharmaceutical giants maintain Internet web sites denigrating natural and herbal remedies, which have proven effective for thousands of years, while extolling the virtues of their own overpriced and side effect ridden concoctions." "Throughout his life, Tom Tasseff has continued his research on health, fitness, and the prevention of disease. He attributes much of his personal and professional success to his healthy body and his healthy mind. He wrote this book to share with you what he has learned and employed over his lifetime in hope that you too will be encouraged to take positive action and take responsibility for and control of your life, your health, your happiness, and your destiny."

The big-business-big-government-big-medicine-big money machine profits from our disease and suffering.
