    James Allen's From Poverty to Power (1901) and As a Man Thinketh (1902) stand as seminal texts in the self-help genre that have served as sources of inspiration since their publication at the beginning of the 20th century. Loosely based in its principles around the Biblical proverb "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," As a Man Thinketh asserts the powerful idea that belief is central to bringing about positive events in one's life.

    Our thoughts are expressed as words. Words really are containers for power. What we think and say guides our life. This book is a wonderful example of how to change our life by changing our thoughts.

    "Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day. As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past."

    Story

    This story is a wonderful exposition of a child, crippled by a loveless and abusive life who is offered the chance of immortality to right the wrongs done to him. He is considered 'insane' because of an event in his distant past that he cannot remember and has been banished to the frozen regions of Alaska.

    He has lived a difficult and lonely life, compensating by not allowing anyone to get close to him emotionally and his responses to others is always biting and apparently without guilt.

    Astrid, a Nymph Judge, is sent to judge him prior to him being destroyed by the god Artemis, and the softer side of him is exposed. Even though he rejects the idea that he has any goodness or kindness within him, she will not give up.

    Unknown to both of them, a killer from Artemis has already been sent to eliminate him and it is a race to save Astrid, the only person that has ever been kind to him. The only person he feels anything for.

    Is he insane, or is he just misunderstood?

    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    Story

    I happen to be a great fan of Brad Thor's novels. I love Harvath and his adventures. This was more of a police procedural and history lesson (which is great, as long as that is what you like). The story was very interesting and the information, which I am certain is true, is frightening, however I like Scott in action and kicking a**. He seemed too domesticated in this novel, a back seat character.

    When rookie lawyer Jessica Ford gets the call from her boss, John Davenport, the senior partner at the illustrious law firm for which she works, she can tell he is well on his way to being drunk. He needs Jess to meet First Lady Annette Cooper, for whom Davenport is a personal lawyer, at a Washington, D.C., hotel. Jess is thrilled: this high-profile assignment must mean that she's earned her boss's trust and she's on her way to bigger things. But unfortunately, bigger isn't always better.

    There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.

    This is a very good reminder of how important it is to keep a vigilant watch on performing tasks that need to get done, in order that we can move to more pleasant, less irksome tasks. It also provides a number of great methods to move along your list of things that need to be done for the day/week/year.

    If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

    It's a business trip that takes attorney Maddie Fitzgerald down to New Orleans, but it's hardly business as usual when a man breaks into her hotel room and tries to kill her. Barely escaping with her life, the sexy, stylish 32-year-old brunette calls the police and finds herself face-to-face with FBI agent Sam McCabe. Unnerved by his questions - and his good looks - Maddie is told she's been targeted by a hired killer, one who has eluded McCabe for years.

    This is a new author for me, so I was uncertain what I would find. What I found was a fast paced mystery with tight suspense and a surprise finale. I would have preferred a different narrator due to the difficulty she had with deep male voices. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised.
