4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked good fun!, Jan. 27 2003
This review is from: Wolf (Bilingual) (DVD)
Imaging the weirdest of all actor getting even weirder. That's what happenes when Jack Nicholson hits a large black animal and is bitten when he attempts to remove it from the road.
I love this movie as it shows the strength and rejuvination which comes with the werewolf's bite. Jack Nicholson is old but has an OK job, he has a cheating wife, and a new nose which smells a drop of tequilla in a cup of coffee on your breath.
He learns more of his internal demon wolf as the moon cycles. He also finds a way of controling his complete change, but when a new woman in his life is in danger from a rival wolf he must decide if he really wants to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, however occasionally contradictory, Jan. 2 2003
This review is from: The 48 Laws of Power (Paperback)
This book is highly engaging and has some interesting stories, however many of the laws (as mentioned in another report) are quite contradictory.
This book calls them "laws", laws are unbreakable rules, they are more of general guidelines. The book never tells the fact that people are different and that 1 (or 48) rules cannot be expected to work on all people. One rule mentioned is crush enemies conpletely or they'll seek revenge, not all people are vengeful. Do you ever seek vengence on those who send you spam beyond blocking their email?
On the other hand the book, when the book is not condradicting itself, does give excellant stories of how many of history's most powerful attained their stattus and how many who did not heed to the laws met their dimise.
All in all the book is good and somewhat insightful. If you've read many other books on attaining power you don't need this one, but if this will be your first then it is worth your money.
