"Day of Lightning, Years of Scorn -- Walter C. Short and the Attack on Pearl Harbor"
By Charles R. Anderson
Naval Institute Press, $34.95

The other Pearl Harbor commander whose name became synonymous with "scapegoat," Short emerges here as a hard-working, honorable professional who nonetheless made mistakes and was overwhelmed by events. He was simply a horse soldier in an airplane era. Unlike Adm. Husband Kimmel, who believed he was railroaded and fought back, Short chose to just fade away.

"HA -- Ou ka Leo O Ka Pu / The Voice of the Shell Sounds -- Breathe!"
By Elithe Manuha'a ipo Aguiar Kahn
Zen Care, $18.95

Let's call it "puka publishing," those little special-interest books aimed at just a few people instead of a mass audience, but those few readers are thrilled with the product. Kahn's slim book is nothing less than a how-to of Hawaii breathing techniques, designed to reduce stress and enhance life. Whew!
