    When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-30s and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with.

    Story

    I thought this book was quite entertaining. A few observations...

    1. The lack of relationships was criticized but in the context of a 'ghost man' I thought this was appropriate. The main character was ruthlessly pragmatic and ultimately unencumbered by emotional attachments.

    2. There were similarities between Jack Reacher which was a plus since I am a huge fan of Lee Child. Just more of a good thing.

    3. For me, personally, there were plenty of moments in the book where I was pleasantly surprised at the way the way the scenes played out. It was slick and clever.

    So all in all, a solid freshman effort that I would recommend to anyone.

    Story

    This book was full of anecdotes and hype designed to whip you up into a frenzy but after listening to over half the book, I had no idea how to hack my hormones, do a single better lift or anything useful for that matter.

    Apparently a 'real world guide' means a ton of stupid bro talk and allusions to how much sex you should be having. I gave up after half the book and feeling like the big reveal was just around the corner only to be replaced by another useless anecdote.

    It should be called Infomarketing: Engineering an Unreal Guide. Next!

    In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

    The book started out a little slow and I felt like I was required to be a little long suffering with the main character but the resolution was well worth it. I felt like the last twenty minutes of the book made it all worth while.

    The plot was clever and the characters were quite interesting. A really great read!
