    People starting out in business tend to seek step-by-step formulas or rules, but in reality there are no magic bullets. Rather, says veteran company-builder Norm Brodsky, there's a mentality that helps street- smart entrepreneurs solve problems and pursue opportunities as they arise. Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

    I've read many business books but this one beats all of them hands down. My new mantra is "What would Norm do?"

    On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer. On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace.

    Story

    I'm not sure why this was so highly reviewed. The story was okay with lots of plot twist that kept you guessing until the end. (Almost too many in my opinion.) The biggest issue I had was all the extraneous information. One example that comes to mind is a single sentence telling us that the fire chief had called in sick. He wasn't a character in the book. Neither was his replacement or any other person in the fire department. It was vastly annoying. Plus, I have no desire to keep track of the personal lives of that many people. It was like turning on a long running soap opera for the first time. Very confusing.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    Roth has stated that the series was always supposed to end this way. It seemed as though the first two books had gone so far off in a different direction that she was trying to shove it back to fit the ending she had wanted. Instead, she should have let this book develop more organically and allowed her vision to change. Maybe if she had given herself more than the allotted three books she could have made the ending work. Maybe.

    Personally, I didn't mind the narration. I agree that Stanford is too soft spoken for the part. I enjoyed listening to him but he just didn't fit the character. Emma Galvin was wonderful as Tris.

    A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance - including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures.

    Not sure why this was so well reviewed. The narrator is fine but the characters are insipid. At least the grammar isn't terrible.
