About this book
Located on the wide and beautiful Caloosahatchee River, just fifteen miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers, the fabled "City of Palms," is known throughout the world for its tropical weather and many local attractions. Exotic flowers and shrubbery dot the city landscape, which today includes a revitalized downtown, inviting neighborhoods, endless shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. Like many Florida communities, the origin of Fort Myers can be traced to the Seminole Indian wars of the 1800s. The fort itself-named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers-was established in the frontier region to quell uprisings and help in the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces during the Civil War, was abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business, and citrus and vegetable farming to sustain their families and their new town. As the years passed, Fort Myers grew and began to attract winter visitors, including such famous Americans as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, both of whom had homes in the area, as well as wealthy sportsmen eager to try their luck at tarpon fishing in nearby Gulf waters. When the railroad finally reached Fort Myers, tourists, transplants, retirees, and many more would discover the irresistible charms of one of Florida's newest gems.

About this book
Fort Myers lies on the beautiful, wide Caloosahatchee River. Tropical flowers and palm trees dot the landscape, which today boasts a revitalized downtown, historic neighborhoods, shopping, and a breathtaking waterfront. The fort itself, named for Lt. Col. Abraham Myers, was established to quell uprisings and help the Indian Removal campaigns. It was later used by Union forces in the Civil War, abandoned, and then reoccupied by courageous settlers who relied on the cattle business and farming to sustain families and the community. In the late 1800s, Fort Myers began to attract famous winter residents, such as "electrician" Thomas Edison, as well as wealthy sportsmen trying their luck at tarpon fishing. When the "iron horse" finally arrived in 1904, Fort Myers experienced an economic transformation, and her days as a frontier cow town were numbered.

Myers Florida (Hardcover) Very disappointing. There's absolutely nothing tropical about these recipes, they are just your regular, boring recipes I'm sure every family knows already. Kung pao chicken, London broil with mushroom sauce, Chicken Parmesan.... Why are these featured in a book about Florida cooking? There are much better cookbooks available, eg. Calypso Cafe, Tropic Cooking (this one is the best!), Miami Spice, Keys Cuisine.... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2015

Myers Beach, Florida (Hardcover) This was too be a birthday present for 75 yr old father. I was so excited to find it on Amazon. When I received the book it was in a lightly padded envelope that was badly shredded on all 4 corners. The upper right pages (30+) were water damaged. A little more thought into packaging such a heavy/large book would have been appreciated. When I contacted seller I asked for tracking number which they replied there was none. There was one on the envelope when it arrived. My father was thrilled to get this gift, but I was embarrassed since the description was "Collector/Nice" condition. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 30, 2013

    Now making soft water

I was pulling my hair out for a week trying to figure out why it wasn't making soft water despite the complete servicing of the valve. I replaced the resin and after just one cycle the water shows to be soft according to the test strip... very pleased!I'd also like to say that there was a built-in spout on the bag which I didn't notice until after I cut it in half. It would had been great to make use of the spout to make refilling easier. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 2, 2015

    Beats a service call

    0 5/5 MayDayJ - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Water softening resin 1 cu. ft. bag replacement softener resin I used this to replaced the resin in my old culligan softener. I did it myself for a fraction of the price. It would have been near 4 times the price to have them come out and do it. The softeners been working for over a month just fine, just be sure to backwash the new resin a few times then regenerate it before putting it in service. I'm using potassium with it and all is well, I'm glad I took the time to look around for a deal. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 19, 2013

This review is from: Water softening resin 1 cu. ft. bag replacement softener resin I don't know as much about softener resin as I should, but the stuff I ordered here was an honest cubic foot in measure, and it was loose and evenly sized.

    Misunderstood by some, but a truly profound book

    0 5/5 Charles S. Houser (Binghamton, NY) - See all my reviews, May 19, 2000

    Come ye disconsolate!

    Somehow, I managed to get through high school and college without ever seriously reading any of the great Western philosophers. The Consolations of Philosophy is an excellent introduction and quick (I mean,QUICK) overview of six of these men. The deadwhitemales discussed are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche. The discussion is lively and thought-provoking--and amusingly illustrated. This book would serve as an excellent secondary text for an introduction to philosophy course. Even the most jaded undergraduate will want to learn more about the teachings of the philosophers covered. I found the chapters on Seneca ("Consolation for Frustration"), Montaigne ("Consolation for Inadequacy"), and Nietzsche ("Consolation for Difficulties") the most engaging and challenging. De Botton's writing and thinking are fresh and remind me, for some reason, of the cultural essays of Susan Bordo (and Camille Paglia in her more... 5/5 James Paris (Los Angeles, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Consolations of Philosophy (Paperback) Having read Alain de Botton's highly amusing Proust book, I expected no less from CONSOLATIONS OF PHILOSOPHY; and I was not disappointed. Five philosophers (Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche) and one giant of literature (Montaigne) are enlisted to help us deal with such universal problems as popularity, sexual rejection, poverty, and inadequacy. Curiously, none of these philosophers (with the possible exception of Epicurus) led happy lives. Seneca was ordered by his pupil Nero to commit suicide; Montaigne was tortured to the point of distraction by kidney stones; and Nietzsche went mad. De Botton, however, shows how each one exhibited great common sense on at least one area in their lives. The upshot of all this advice is to consider that others have it worse, buck up, and forge ahead despite all the obstacles. Not quite what Buddha discovered beneath the Bodhi Tree, but in this era of chicken soup for whatever ails you, it's a step up. Unlike most...
