    After her husband confesses to a racy but ultimately unfulfilling affair, Sophie Gibson's rage leaves her raw, unable to process his attempt to repair the damage by suggesting she have her own tryst.

    Evangeline says: "Very Steamy!"
    ""Book is okay""
    Overall

    Decent book. But the main character is sorta spoiled and bratty. I found myself cheering for the bad characters, all of the times except for one. But it's entertaining.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "Master storyteller"
    Overall

    Easy read. But the book is juicy with great information. I found a new hero in this book (Caballo Blanco) I wish I could live the way he does.

    Acclaimed author Joseph J. Ellis penned the National Book Award-winning American Sphinx and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Founding Brothers, a fixture on The New York Times best seller list for an entire year, and one of the most popular history books of all time. Now this master historian turns his attention to the most exalted American hero, Founding Father and first President George Washington.

    D. Littman says: "Good book, not a great book"
    "really interesting"
    Overall

    It discusses washington's weaknesses. He had alot of things he was not good at. But it's amazing to hear such insightfull information about the creation of the nation. A must read for history geeks like me.

    In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

    Ronald says: "Barack Obama is an inspirng speaker"
    "alot of information"
    Overall

    people who read this book will see what he's currently doing as president. I think that once reading this he will make more sence to the reader.

    John Grisham's first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small town justice gone terribly awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller yet.

    Michael H. Wagner says: "Wake up people..."
    "Innocent man convicted."
    Overall

    This is the only non fiction book ever from Grisham. It describes how some men get convicted of awful crimes even though they're innocent. It will scare you into being extremely cautious when dealing with courts. It's an amazing tragic story. Highly recommend.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Anita says: "Excellent Insights"
    "Greatest management book ever written"
    Overall

    Some people are just good at managing people, some are great technical workers and some are great entrepreneurs. This book will help the average line worker become a good leader, and an owner of a company get the highest level of efficiency from employees.

    For the first time in our history, scientists are uncovering astounding medical evidence about dieting. Now, Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz translate this cutting-edge information to help you shave inches off your waist by giving you the best weapon against fat: knowledge. Through their signature entertaining style, Drs. Roizen and Oz teach you about your body -- how and why it stores calories, burns fat, and reacts to the foods you test your body with.

    Joe says: "You'll finish the book, but will you lose weight?"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    It's alot easier to follow than most diets. The initial results are not as dramatic as atkins. But the food choices are so much better. Also it's just much healthier for the body. My doctor recommended this one because he says that Atkins is based on fat and that fat is alot harder to burn. To this I think he meant that one has alot less energy. Which I would agree. I've done both and I like this one because it's McDonald's and Pizza Hut friendly :-) I recommend also buying the book because it's got a whole bunch of illustrations. Strenght and distance training is the key.

    Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly 20 years ago.

    "Really meaninful stuff."
    Overall

    This book made me think about my own mortallity. What is life really about? Who are really our friends? Will they care when we're gone? It's a book that should be taught at the high school level. So that people start with the end in mind. It made me almost cry when at the end of the book Morrie speaks. Great Book
