  • A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

    Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers - creative and emphatic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't.

    A wasted credit. 6 hours long and I got just over 3 hours in and regretted every minute. Small useless bits of information that could be reviewed in a condensened form is dragged out by the author. Others reviewed this book as "insightful?" are you kidding me? Vanna White's "Vanna Speaks" is better than this. If this book was correctly review by others I would have passed on it, sorry but a 3 minute theme dragged on for over 6 hours should never get anywhere near 2 or 3 stars!

    Texas? Toast. Battered by five cataclysmic hurricanes in three weeks, the Texas Gulf Coast and half of the Lone Star State is reeling from the worst devastation in history. Thousands are dead or dying - but the worst is only beginning. Amid the wreckage, something unimaginable is happening: a deadly virus has broken out, returning the dead to life - with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. The nightmare begins...

    A very well written story for someone new to this zombie genre it is perfect. To the seasoned Zombie reader you will find the pace a bit slow and drawn out. Is it worth the credit , sure but you've been warned :)

    A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race. One survivor, strangely immune to the effects of the epidemic, ventures forward to experience a world without man. What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

    As kids, the three of them were inseparable; as soldiers, they were torn apart. Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago fought alongside Dom's elder brother Carlos at Aspho Fields in the epic battle that changed the course of the Pendulum Wars. There's a new war to fight now, a war for mankind's very survival. But while the last human stronghold on Sera braces itself for another onslaught from the Locust Horde, ghosts come back to haunt Marcus and Dom.

    This is worth a credit, well written and well narrated story. The story totally pulled me in, i enjoyed every minute and I am not a big Sci-Fi person.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Overall

    The story picks right up where the first one left off. The different story telling format is the same as the first book but the story is fast paced. Well worth the credit, cannot wait for the next!

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "Worth the credit"
    Overall

    The only con about this read is that it does stop way too soon, thus the 3 star rating, but picks up right where it stopped in the next story. The story format is different but very well paced. I did read the second in the series and was not disappointed, and will be waiting for the next!

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "Worth the Read"
    Overall

    If you have no idea what an EMP is, read this book and discover what is very possible with a silent nuclear attack. I just wish the story was a bit broader and not focusing mainly on one family in one town.

    Detective Sergeant Michael McCabe moved from New York City to Portland, Maine, to escape a dark past: both the ex-wife who'd left him for an investment banker, and the tragic death of his brother, a hero cop gone bad. He sought to raise his young daughter away from the violence of the big city . . . so he's unprepared for the horrific killer he discovers, whose bloody trail may lead to Portland's social elite.

    Eileen says: "Can't wait for more from this author!"
    "Well Written"
    Overall

    The Cutting by James Hayman is a very well written novel but sadly you can figure out the plot halfway thru the read. Given that, it was still worth the credit. Look forward to a sequel!
