    This is certainly written to adults with a family. It is probably best to be read or listened to before his other books.

    You can believe the Bible. Without any doubt. As American society becomes more secularized, Christians need to know all the facts about the Bible. Dr. Grant R. Jeffrey has spent decades researching history, science, archaeology, medicine, and prophecy - finding that each discipline confirms the truth of Scripture.

    The voice took a while to get use to, but after I did, I enjoyed it. Most of it for me was review. Seems I heard a lot of these facts before, but there was plenty new ones. It's worth listening to again to become more familiar with it, which I intend to do.

    The first few chapters were just great. He goes on to journal his own activities. Interesting as it may be, I don't know how it has anything to do with thinking like a billionaire. I suppose he's just showing how he enjoys life.

    Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books won't. While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a time to rejoice in the life you lived together?

    Story

    This book has a nice, well rounded, collection of thoughts to get one to think correctly about marriage. Since I'm about to be married, I suppose time will be necessary to reveal it's helpfulness.

    I read one review that said they hammered the "being friends" point too much, but it was only one chapter, which seems fitting to me. There is a healthy dose of statistics. It is refreshing that they clarify the statistic that there is no difference in the divorce rate between Christians and secular couples. They pointed out that that statistic included anyone who claimed to be Christian, not those who practice Christianity and go to church.

    It has some interesting insights on what the Bible says or does not say about sex. They do go over the delicate topics, subject by subject. They're stance on what is permissible Biblically could be summed up, "anything goes so long as it's just between the husband and the wife".

    My first book was "getting started in stocks". I'd say this is on par with that first book on stocks.

    In recent years, the dream of eternal youth has started to look like more than just a dream. In the 20th century alone, life expectancy increased by more than 30 years—almost as much time as humans have gained in the whole span of human existence. Today a motley array of scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs believe that another, bigger leap is at hand—that human immortality is not only possible, but attainable in our own time.

    The first half has the interesting science. It blends into a journalistic story of conversations, and toward the later end it is more of a story and dialog. I'm more interested in the science myself, but I think it was worth the buy.
