But the book is very useful. I had planned on sending this copy to Sib when I finished with it, but I may keep it, or get a second copy to pass along.

Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is an entertaining romp through the galaxy. It's a book I've read several times first in high school; however, after reading Kurt Vonnegut's most overtly science fiction novel, The Sirens of Titan, it almost felt like a fresh experience. Of course, Vonnegut and Adams are very different The story mainly shuttles between Rosie, her husband Marco and Raju who enters their life as a guide. Narayan is based on the conflicts of human interest or nature. It is contrasting but interesting to note that these characters never reach a point of agreement in the book. Raju takes interest in Rosie thus Marco, her husband, leaves her. When they fall in love Rosie and Raju, Rosie becomes an eminent dancer and singer and Raju comes on the terms of exploiting her finances.

It then moves to more specific descriptions of gemstone resources, mining, manufacturing, evaluation, and the concept of a jewel. The introduction is a quick reference for readers without a science background or familiarity with the gem and jewelry industry. The main body of the book is divided into “Native Elements,” “Gemstones,” “Organic Gems,” and “Rock Gems and Rocks.” These titles are commonly used in comprehensive gemology publications and textbooks, but here the items under each one do not follow the standard alphabetical mineral list. “Native Elements” covers precious metals and diamond, though diamond is typically considered a gemstone. The other three sections also introduce both gem species and special single stones. Images illustrate each gem species, rough stone, polished or faceted stone, and jewelry piece. Famous crown jewels, appealing artifacts, and jewels of significance or owned by historical figures or celebrities are detailed.

Book review of The Assertiveness Guide for Women How to Communicate Your Needs, Set Healthy Boundaries, and Transform Your Relationships. This question attempts to collect the few pearls among the dozens of bad C books that are published every year. (The regulars might mercilessly undo your work if they disagree with a recommendation.) Add a short blurb/description about each book that you have personally read/benefited from. Books that meet the criteria will be added to the list. Unlike many other programming languages, which are often picked up on the go from tutorials found on the Internet, few are able to quickly pick up C without studying a well-written C book. Books that have reviews by the Association of C and C Users (ACCU) have links to the review.
