Publishers Description
The star of BETs "Mind, Body & Soul," and featured guest speaker on "Oprah's Lifeclass," Potter's House pastor, T.D. Jakes turns his attention to the topic of relationships, guiding you on the right track to making decisions you will benefit from for the rest of your life. In the vein of Joel Osteen's "Become a Better You" and Dr. Phil's "Life Strategies," the "New York Times" bestselling "Making Great Decisions" (formerly tiled "Before You Do") gives you the psychological and practical tools you need to reflect, discern, and decide the next step toward strong relationships in your life. "Remember," writes T.D. Jakes, "your tomorrow is no better than the decisions you make today."
"My promise is that if you read this book, you will be equipped, you will know all you need to know about making foolproof relational decisions," writes T.D. Jakes. Choosing the right partner, at home or at work, is one of the most consequential decisions we'll ever make. How can we be sure that we're choosing wisely? How do we know if we're doing the right thing when we change careers? By breaking our decisions down into their five crucial components:
Research: gathering information
Roadwork: removing obstacles
Rewards: listing choices and visualizing consequences
Revelation: narrowing your options and making your selection
Rearview: looking back and adjusting as necessary to stay on course
Clear-sighted, realistic, and spiritually uplifting, "Making Great Decisions" is one of those rare books that can change lives.

The key-book of naval novels  Nov 30, 2003
I first read Peter Simple in an abridged German version when I was 11.
However, I managed to find a 1895 English copy and greatly enjoy its full text. Nowhere have I found such elaborate and distinct naval terminology ever since. Captain Marryat is, as far as I know the only author who described a club-hauling of a man-of-war in full detail. His naval experiences make this novel a documentary novel also concerning life-style and other details. Such as the vivid description of France and other countries Marryat has been to. I still enjoy reading it very much. POB's books are different but as fine a pleasure to read as Marryat's Peter Simple.
 
Adventure on the High Seas!  May 7, 2001
Peter Simple is the tale of a young British midshipman seeking his fame and fortune on the high seas. Set during the Napoleonic wars, it offers comedy and adventure in an old-school style.

Originally released in serialized form, Peter Simple is a fun, straight-forward adventure novel. It was a best-seller in it's time (1833) and holds up beautifully. I think this will appeal to anyone who ever thrilled to the works of Rafael Sabatini, Bernard Cornwell, or Orczy's Scarlet Pimpernel. It's an easy read and great fun !

 
Great fun  Mar 3, 2000
Frederick Marryat was a sea captain who served under the famous Lord Cochrane. This book was an inspiration to such later writers as Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forster. It is a little like Tom Jones in that it episodic, even picaresque. It is very funny in parts, in a way that O'Brian is not--you get the sense that Marryatt is weaving in incidents and characters from his own naval career. It certainly helps to have read O'Brian for a deep understanding of the culture, but with Marryat you feel at times that you are in touch with the real thing.
 
Difficult to put down. It kept me up late  Oct 27, 1999
Another good book in the Heart of Oak series. This novel was quite the opposite of the last one in the series I read, "The Black Ship". I think both novels give good pictures of how life was on the British sailing ships but in "Peter Simple" the crew seems to have a lot of fun and good times as well as taking their work very seriously. They are able to joke around a good bit and enjoy life. This seems much more realistic to me based on my own experiences at sea. "Peter Simple" is written by an actual man of war captain from the Napoleanic era and so probably portrays a much more accurate picture of life on a British man of war than any of the other similar novels. I really liked the novel. Although some of the coincidences and the ending especially are a little too much like a "ladies romance novel" I still think O'Brian fans would enjoy this novel too. The sea battles and ship maneuvers are every bit as good as O'Brian.
 
It was a fascinating book  Mar 15, 1999
I loved this book when I was 14. Since I could not read English, I did read it in Spanish. Now I am 38 and believe I can read English, even if probably Mr. Shakespeare would not "be in love" with the way I pretend to express in his language.

Peter Simple was a magnificent book, specially for someone like me, whose name in Spanish is Pedro (Peter), and after years searching for it, even in London, I found it, and I have ordered it to reread as if I were 14 years old.

Thank you,

Simply, Pedro
