Pianists Guide to Standard Teaching and Performance Literature

This reference book is an invaluable resource for teachers, students and performers for evaluating and selecting piano solo literature. Concise and thoroughly researched, thousands of works, from the Baroque through the Contemporary periods, have been graded and evaluated in detail. Includes an alphabetical list of composers, explanations of works, and much more.

REVIEWS

1.It deliberately limits itself to things the author believes no harder than the Bach Three-Part Inventions or Beethoven Op 49. It also largely avoids transcriptions. The text tends to be about as succinct as that in Hinson, and thus just as frustrating: a little more detail, even if opinionated, often would be welcome. It also mostly limits itself to things in print at the time of its publication over twenty years ago. With the rise of the web and IMSLP this is an unfortunate limitation for things published in past centuries; and, of course, it necessarily omits the wonderful resources now published electronically directly by composers.

On the good side, I think there is a serious, and welcome, effort to include some pretty obscure things, particularly relatively easy ones. I’m pretty sure there are things in here I’ve not seen cited elsewhere. And it shows considerable respect to some valuable, easy pieces that aren’t profound enough to get much play in most other reference works. Again, it is over twenty years old, though, so nothing really recent, nor reflecting recent revisions of taste, are included.

2.It does have an oddly hit or miss quality in some cases. For example, only a few of the Mompou Cancion e Danza and Impressiones Intimas are mentioned, though I’m pretty sure many of those neglected are still in the difficulty range covered.

As a physical object it is substandard: it is feebly bound and pages were coming out within an hour of my first opening it. This is particular frustrating in a reference work.

On balance, I guess I’d categorize it as a good start, but it could benefit tremendously from a thorough revision and updating. Though perhaps in this day and age such a revision would be better as a living on-line resource rather than as a static book.

REVIEW

1. I was skeptical of this series at first because so many books have tackled Disney related stories.
But it wasn’t long into this first book here that I realized that this was unique.
It had a bit of everything a YA book could and should have.
It has a good story line, good mystery, great characters, good versus evil, heroes versus villains, old and new technology, but mostly a sit on the edge of your chair excitement and expectations.
And it was all very relatable.
Good job Mr. Pearson, good job indeed!
Sincerely,
Alan McDonald

2.

I got this book for free after seeing it on the Kindle Buffett list. I did not know the author or the series but chose it because the description made me feel like it could be like the Harry Potter series. The book does have some resemblance to Harry Potter. Similarities to Potter: (1) The book involves magic (good and bad); (2) the book involves kids befriending one another for a greater cause (instead of Harry, Ron and Hermione et al — there is Finn, Maybeck, Charlene, Willa, and Phillby) ; (3) This book involves one main boy being the leader (Instead of Harry it’s Finn); (4) the book has a wise old man character who speaks in riddles of sorts and is never as direct as he should be who guides the kids ( Instead of Dumbledore it’s Wayne).

Summary:
13 year old Lawrence Finnegan Whitman (Finn) was chosen to become a Disney Interactive Host (DHI) along with 4 other kids. They all start having the same “dream” and then are pulled into a quest to solve a riddle and stop evil from taking over the Park and the World outside the park.

I am a Florida native and have visited Disney World more times than I care to remember but this book made me see it with new eyes and I appreciated that. The book also made me want to learn more about Disney – the park and the man. I am likely to read the rest of the books in the series and believe that if you are an adult who enjoyed the Harry Potter series then you will probably enjoy this book as well.

The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics

The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics and Contemporary Moral Problems

The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics and Contemporary Moral Problems

READ or DOWNLOAD

Brief yet thorough and affordably priced, The Ethical Life: Fundamental Readings in Ethics and Moral Problems, Fourth Edition, is ideal for courses in introductory ethics and contemporary moral problems. Featuring forty-two readings divided into four parts–The Good Life, Normative Ethics, Metaethics, and Moral Problems–it introduces students to ethical theory and a wide range of moral issues. The essays include selections from such historically influential philosophers as Aristotle, Hume, Kant, and Mill alongside work by contemporary philosophers like Philippa Foot, Robert Nozick, Peter Singer, and Judith Jarvis Thomson. Detailed reading introductions provide helpful contextual information.

Designed as a companion reader to Russ Shafer-Landau’s textbook, The Fundamentals of Ethics, Fourth Edition, this volume is also comprehensive enough to be used on its own.

Review


“The chief strength of the book is that it is perfectly comprehensive, covering essential literature ranging from general issues of value theory to metaethics to ethical theory and then on to applied ethics. Shafer-Landau’s writing style is very clear and perfectly appropriate for any college-level student.”–Jamie Phillips, Clarion University of Pennsylvania


“This is the best introductory textbook of primary sources in moral philosophy. Paired with The Fundamentals of Ethics,this is perfectly suited for an introductory undergraduate course in ethics.”–Aleksander Pjevalica, University of Texas at El Paso


“Shafer-Landau’s writing is exceptional. The introductions tend to be spot-on. The book’s affordable pricing (especially as part of the package with The Fundamentals of Ethics) and small size are added bonuses.”–Robert M. Farley, Hillsborough Community College


“I think that this book is great: I like that it is shorter than the huge 700+-page books out there, and way less expensive too. I also like that there are instructor manual resources available.”–Phil Jenkins, Marywood University


“I have always liked the test bank questions that OUP supplies with its course materials, and these are no exception (I can’t say the same about every publisher!).”–David Burris, Arizona Western College

About the Author

David Bock taught AP Calculus during his 35 years at Ithaca High School, and served for several years as an Exam Reader for the College Board. He also taught mathematics at Tompkins-Cortland Community College, Ithaca College, and Cornell University. A recipient of several local, state, and national teaching awards, Dave has coauthored five textbooks, and now leads workshops for AP teachers.

Dennis Donovan teaches AP Calculus AB and BC and AP Statistics at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA. He is a College Board consultant for AP Calculus and presents one-day and two-day workshops and leads AP Summer Institutes. He is a grader for the AP Calculus Exam. He is also a T3 Regional Instructor concentrating on the TI-Nspire.

Just recently bought this book to prep for my Calculus BC class in the fall for some summer prep. Overall, the book has great practice problems ranging from easy ones for a quick refresher to hard ones. The thing I absolutely detest about this book is the explanation. Yes, they have the right answers and show some steps, but no word explanations (rarely) and skip a lot of steps. I ended have to look up the steps more in depth in Symolab and it can take me some 20-40 minutes to actually get the problem simply because Barron’s cannot list out the steps more in depth. I imagine this would be good if you are just reviewing and supplementing, but as a book to learn like me, I would say any website online is better than this. Will update on how this book helped me with my actual AP exam and if it is good as a supplement!

Biography

Hi, I’m Nielson!

Once upon a time, I was an ambitious student hoping to get into a top university. I struggled to do well on the SAT (barely above average), so my parents sent me to classes that didn’t help and gave me books that never went beyond the basics. They didn’t know any better. After a lot of failure and frustration, I decided to self-study and figure out the test myself. My efforts paid off because I eventually scored in the top 1% of all test takers (this was the old exam). Since then, I’ve stayed up-to-date with the test prep world as a teacher and an author, helping thousands of students improve their own scores. Unlike many other “experts” out there, I’ve actually taken both the SAT and ACT in their current forms, scoring a perfect 1600 and a 35, respectively.

I created The College Panda to be the resource I wish I had when I was a student. If you’re an ambitious student who’s striving for that high score and wants the most comprehensive test prep out there, then these are the books for you.

Read or Download at http://free.readingbooks.host/?book=0735211299

Good Habits : Proven Way to Build Good Habits.No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving – every day. James Clear, one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you’ll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, listeners will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Learn how to:

  • Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy)
  • Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower
  • Design your environment to make success easier
  • Get back on track when you fall off course
  • And much more

Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits – whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.
