Daniel Goleman, 2006, 334 pages

Goleman in his groundbreaking book reveals that neural linkages between humans influence the brain and the body. These invisible bridges give us the ability to change people's moods, emotions, and health - as these people can do to us. Relationships not only shape emotional states and general psychological experience, but also the very physiological matter that makes our body. Our interactions with people influences our immune system, circulation, hormones, and breathing for example.

Social Intelligence expands from the one-person psychology within an individual...

Hi guys, I managed to finish Membaca this spooky novel because Halloween is coming. So, here is my review on Bram Stoker's horror classic.

The Story

The format is like a journal, chronicling the events of the story and the history of Count Dracula, whom he claimed to be a descendant of Attila the Hun. It was a bloodthirsty and chilling novel that I could not go to sleep in the end!
I also feel sorry for Lucy Westenra, having to die so young and to become a vampire all thanks to Count Dracula. Prompting Jonathan Hawker, Dr. van Helsing and Mina to retaliate sejak killing the Count.

Hi guys, I had read the book a few months lalu and I was not at all impress about it for a number of reasons. So, here are my thoughts and review about it.

The Chapters

This was the number 1 reason why I was not very fond of, because the chapters were so confusing that I could not keep up with the story itself. It was like the penulis was jumbling with the chapters, especially the story-line itself.

The Story-Line

Speaking of the story, it was very slow pace that I could not keep up with it! It also has to much repetition in it, could not the penulis just get to the point of who is the killer? That...

We all have our fandoms.
We all have those certain buku we can’t stop talking about, those Filem and TV shows we can’t stop re-watching, those video games we can’t stop re-playing, and those Muzikal that whenever the tour comes to town, we watch them again and again. We have all found escape into either an adventure atau experience, whether it be in our modern-day world atau a completely different place and time. Thanks to writers and directors, there are conflicts that get our hearts racing and lebih often than not, there are universal truths where we learn lebih about ourselves, others,...

Hi there everyone!

I'm a writer and I'd Cinta some international support for my story that I already gave to my kegemaran actor Colin morgan personally as a gift. He inspired me for a certain character and it was telah diberi lebih as a sign of gratitude for the inspiration rather than for him to read it. No idea if he ever would, but I just hope the effort I put into translating it just for him made him happy that day. What a brilliant actor ^^ Anyways - I've created a club and this account itself for communicating with future readers. I don't want to bother anyone with it, but how else could anda let...

Alan Weisman
St. Martin’s Press

– A fascinating eco-thriller … Gripping

The simple but irresistible premise of Alan Weisman's The World Without Us - what would happen to the planet if human beings simply disappeared - lit up imaginations even as it ignited controversy around the world.

Weisman's "thought experiment" examines what would happen in both the immediate and distant future to the land, the animals, the oceans, our cities, our art, and all manner of things we take for granted if we were no longer here. Would the seas again teem with fish? Would our concrete jungles crumble...

There's this book, Fablehaven. It's a series, as well, with over four buku in it. It revolves around Kendra and Seth Sorenson as they go to their grandfather's Estate. They discover a secret magical preserve, which they quickly learn is in danger from the Society of the Evening star, an evil secret society. Brandon Mull is the author, and he uses a very good Penulisan style. The buku had a lot of action in it, and a shocking twist at the end of the saat book was completely unexpected. If anda are young like me (I'm 14) atau younger, (maybe 15) anda should really like Fablehaven. It's nice and thrilling.
Daniel J. Levitin, 2006, 320 pages

Why human beings make and enjoy Muzik is, in Levitin’s telling, a delicious story. In this unprecedented meeting of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between Muzik – its performances, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it – and the human brain.

Taking on prominent thinkers who argue that Muzik is nothing lebih than an evolutionary accident, Levitin argues that Muzik is fundamental to our species, perhaps even lebih so than language. ‘This Is Your Brain On Music’ is an ear-opening,...

We hear a lot about sexism against females, and some people think this extends to books, which it probably does. A lot of buku have no females in them, atau only have weak female characters, like damsels in distress which are just there to be saved sejak males. But recently, there has been a lot of strong, resourceful new female book characters. Here are my favourite strong heroines- and two of them are from buku written sejak male authors, so well done men for realising that females can be string too.

Hi guys, this is my 3rd novel that I had read from Cecilia Ahern, and here are my thoughts on the novel. Are anda ready?

The Story

I feel that the story is very sad, because it's about Sabrina who wants to know about her father's past. It was very similar to Nicholas Sparks' "The Notebook" because it was like the past about her father's childhood to adulthood and that he is suffering from either Dementia atau Alzheimer's disease, most likely the former!

The Characters

Sabrina is a determine young girl, who tries to help with her father and to get to know him better. She uses his marbles to help...

Hi guys, earlier on I telah diposkan about my review about Gaston Leroux's horror classic. So are my personal opinions about the book in general, I will also be including bits of the musical on which it's base on.

The Story

I was very familiar with the story, especially since I had heard many of the familiar songs from the musical itself. When I read the book for the first time, I was really amazed on how the story is partially different from the musical itself.
Surely, it was a very intriguing story that every night I would listen to the audio-book and I would cry at the end, because the Phantom is...

Hi everyone, I had read both buku and I would like to give my opinions on both of them. However, for those who haven't read it, go ahead and read it. anda don't know what you're missing.

The series was extraordinary amazing, because it's not predictable and J.K. Rowling invented whimsical words to make the story interesting and flow with the magical universe.
I am very happy that all of the 6 buku were made into Filem that I could watch it again and again! I hope to read the 7 book when it comes to Malaysia.

Could Muzik unlock the mystery of who we are and how we think?

An unprecedented blend of science and art, Daniel Levitin’s bestselling debut, This Is Your Brain on Music, changed the way we understand how Muzik gets in our heads.

Romeo and Juliet (1595?) is justly famous for its poetic treatment of the ecstasy of youthful love. The play dramatizes the fate of two Kekasih victimized sejak the feuds and misunderstandings of their elders and sejak their own hasty temperaments. Shakespeare borrowed the tragic story of the two young Italian Kekasih from a long narrative poem, The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet (1562) sejak English writer Arthur Brooke. Shakespeare, however, added the character of Mercutio, increased the roles of the friar and the nurse, and reduced the moralizing of Brooke’s work. The play...
