5.0 out of 5 stars The best smooth jazz guitar album I've ever heard, June 21 2004
This album knocked me out! The riffs, the technical solos the scats, it all sounds like a very well produced smooth jazz dream. There are a couple of cool covers. One is "You make me feel brand new" originally by Thomas Bell and Linda Creed. Then theres "Rain" originally by Jaco Pastorius.Tracks 2,3 5,6&9 stand out as strong ones. For $5.99 this album is a steal. I can't say the same for Norman Browns' other albums though. Yes, this one's the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good CD to own, June 18 2004
This review is from: E-Collection (Audio CD)
I saw Eddie Motta at the Lizner in Washington D.C.in 1999 and I was amazed. He is a very underrated brazilian singer/ songwriter/keyboardist and this CD captures him well. I have not heard much of his other CDs, but I can tell you that if you like brazilian music and you like pop-jazz this one is worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best herb book i've ever read., May 18 2004
This is the best, bar none. It goes into detail with each herb, telling us the energetics of the herbs, in terms of ayurveda-the oldest system of popular standardized medicine in the world. Ayurveda literally means science of life. There is indepth information on the physical and psychological effects of each herb. It even tells you how the herbs relate to the chakras. Dr. Vasant Lad is the countrys' leading authority on Ayurveda (besides Deepak Chopra)and he got together with David Frawley-a very learned Vedic scholar to write this book. Together they make magic happen. This book is more than worth the money .

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book., May 18 2004
This book was a joy to read. Robert Kiyosaki defines the things
that keep people from getting rich, and he tells us how to think like and become rich people. It was alot of good general information aobut how to increase your financial intelligence. He even goes into some of the psychology behind poverty and wealth. I'm a beginner when it comes to financial literacy, and I found this book to be a goldmine of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best introduction to jyotish ever., Aug. 20 2003
When I signed up for Brendan Feeleys' introductory
course in jyotish (vedic astrolgy), this was the textbook.
Need I say more?
OK, for the person new to vedic astrology, this
is probably the best first step.
It covers all the basics; the philosophy behind it,
the planetary significators,signs,houses, aspects,lordships,planetary periods (dashas), harmonic charts, introductions to medical astrology & remedial astrology, and a bevy of sample charts.
Deep concise and fun! Worth every penny.
