Book Reviews: Dead Sea Scrolls, Google, Freemasonry

I finished reading several potentially interesting books during our recent family vacation trip to Vashon Island, WA:

I really have to recommend the Fields book on the Dead Sea Scrolls.  It is very well documented and historically interesting - plus it has some great pictures.  Part of the Dead Sea Scrolls are on display in San Diego (through December 2007) which is the main reason I picked up the book.

The Google book is also recommended for those interested in technology, Internet history, and business & organizational ideas.  I personally only had a minor understanding of the history, technologies, and personalities related to Google so I found this book very interesting.

The Freemasonry book was entertaining but nothing spectacular.  I enjoyed it because my father and his father were Masons, and I learned a lot about what they probably went through.  The background history was interesting and I enjoyed the humor of the author.

"The Gook Lover" is a pro-Japanese, pro-Asian, but anti-Imperial Japan novel. It is the story of a young Japanese officer, from the Rape of Nanking to Japan's economic miracle when he is eventually acclaimed as the "Henry Ford of modern Japan." Then a casual glance in a Manhattan book store window changes his life and possibly, that of Japan's future.

Good news: It's a gripping story w/ quality trade paperback printing.
Not-so-good-news: I'm the publisher-author.

I'll have review copies in five or six weeks for a November release date.
May I send you a review copy?
