Good second book
Hard to say. I havent read any other books (other than the first of this series) that have female heroines that kick *ss.
I liked them all but related more to the prosecutor, she was calm, level headed, reasonable, kept it together.
No, I listened on my commute.
This is more then just another positive speaking book this is a wake up call. Of COURSE changing your words will change your life! I have listeneid to this repeatedly because I want it to sink in. There are many valuable insights in this book and it is well worth listening to. It touches on silencing the negative inner voice, not listening to the drainers and listening to and understanding what GOD says about you.
This is an amazing tool. I commute 45 minutes each way to work and home and I have listened to this book in my car many many times. It is so helpful, refreshing, calming, heartening! It is insightful and fresh and wonderful. Joyce has a way of expressing things in a way no one else can. She tells her own story and invites you to take a look at yourself and your life and find your own way. Did not love the narration, it was done by Joyce's daughter (she seemed kind of wooden and lacked inflection) I wish Joyce would have done it herself. Overall- great listen.
This was a surprisingly interesting book! While it is pretty common knowlege that a lot of the things in the media about celebrities are "staged", this book puts a whole new spin on it and even causes you to see things in a different light. Why do people hate Lindsay Lohan but love Charlie Sheen? Do celebrities really plan thier hook ups and break ups around their careers? Do publicists tip off photographers when thier clients go places? You have to read it to find out but its all in there and you wont look at celebrity headlines the same way.
I started out on this series because of the many great reviews but when I started listening to the first book I thought that I wouldnt like it because of the concept of a big cat type "being" inside a bounty hunter woman. Also the cat-voice threw me off a bit at first. I decided to stick with it and all of the sudden I am on the 6th book! It kind of snuck up on me and I became interested in the characters and the ongoing storyline and even liked the narration! Give this series a shot, it is very entertaining.
This is such an amazing book with practical and useful tips for every stage of your career. I have used these applications, still use these applications and give advice to female friends and family from this book. I actually bought a few hard copies to give to my daughter, mom and daugher in law. Kate has a great story telling ability and does just enough name dropping to make it interesting. I have listened to this book several times and each time I absorb a little something more. If you are female and you are working you need this book! If you are looking for a job, you need this book. If you are in school, you need this book. There are many valuable life lessons to be learned here!
This is an easy listen with lots of great isable tips and insights. I have started to use some of these methods and and noticed a difference in the way people relate to me. I have listend to the book a few times and each time I absorb new information. The narration is good and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to benefit from a little more charisma.
This book has some fundamental information which is good to re-hear and re-learn (such as kids really do feel loved when a parent cares enough to discipline). It also covers some new insights (such as when kids say parents dont LISTEN, what they mean is that we don't understand thier feelings). There is a lot of surveyed information so some of the lessons in this book may or may not apply to your child specifically, but I think that there is enough information covered to portray the ideas and expression of most kids. I enjoyed the book and the narration and the information is "usable". I would recommend it to new an veteran parents alike.
Love all things Scott Signler and this was no exception. I do not know how Scott comes up with this stuff (author of Infected, Contagious, and Ancestor- all EXCELLENT books too) but he has a unique story telling ability that makes you think of his books long after you are done reading them! My husband loves him too! Look what other amazing authors have to say about him-"A terrifying science thriller that reads like Silence of the Lambs as written by Michael Crichton. Inventive and deeply disturbing." -- Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Assassin's Code (love Assassins Code Series)
"Sigler is in full control of his talent for sharp characterization and amazing visualization." -- Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
(love the Sookie Stackhouse series). You will not be disappointed, give Scott a try. Excerpt: "Doubting his own sanity and stripped of his badge, Bryan begins to suspect that he’s stumbled into the crosshairs of a shadow war that has gripped his city for more than a century—a war waged by a race of killers living in San Francisco’s unknown, underground ruins, emerging at night to feed on those who will not be missed". HECK YEAH!
What's not to like? If you have read his stuff you know what you are in for. This one is not gory but it is bizzare....as usual. I enjoyed the ride.
Max Lucado is amazing and of course this book is amazing. Uplifting, thought provoking, emotional, lovely.
