Angela Barfield, recruiting consultant:

"Conversations With God," by Neal Donald Walsch (Putnam).

"Here is a fascinating perspective on prayer and communication with the divine. This is a book that restates those well-tested truths we sometimes forget."

****

Tom Frick, editor, Los Angeles County Museum of Art:

"The Demons," by Heimito von Doderer (Sun & Moon Press).

"A huge, eccentric, entertaining novel, a spider's web of relationships--artists, criminals, aristocrats, intellectuals--in early 20th century Vienna. Doderer's obsessive theme is the secret connections among all things."

****

Jesus Javier, news anchor, KMEX-TV Channel 34:

"Digital Economy," by D. Tap Scott (McGraw Hill).

"In this excellent primer on the revolution that is taking place in information systems, Scott addresses the consequences of capital redistribution, worker adaptation and global commerce, as well as personal liberties, ethics and privacy."

Amy McKinney, seventh-grader, St. Hedwig's School, Los Alamitos:

"A Wrinkle in Time," by Madeleine L'Engle (A Yearling Book).

"I like the characters most in this story. Meg's real strong, and Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Whatsit, who travel into space and help Meg and her brother find their father, have real funny personalities."
