  • The Secret Law of Attraction as Explained by Napoleon Hill

    The Law of Attraction and other Laws of Success that stem from it are all part of the grand secret that Andrew Carnegie imparted to Napoleon Hill at their famous meeting. It is that secret which runs through Hill's masterwork, The Law of Success, and it is literally the subject of the first sentence in his classic bestseller, Think and Grow Rich - which promises that the Carnegie secret will appear in every chapter of the work.

    Robert says: "Wary of Title but admired - Think & Grow Rich"
    "Reality check"
    Overall

    the "secret" has brought a lot of books on mind power subject but I found it unconvincing and misleading. This book puts these concepts in perspective and offer practical guidance and plausible interpretation of the law of attraction.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Jill Pagano says: "Finally, I understand what happened!"
    "wow"

    finally some understanding of what happened and how people profited. Nicely written without too much unexplained financial jargon

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Shawn Burton says: "Superb! More Clancy/LDP!"

    I am a Tom Clancy fan and have read all his books. I found this one was not up to same standards as his previous books. Still a good listen.

    The end of history. The new world order. Fine phrases, but as Jack Ryan is about to discover, history isn't dead yet - and only the nature of the threat is new. In peacetime, a new enemy readies a strike not only at America's territory, but at the heart of her economy, and National Security Advisor Jack Ryan must prepare an untested president to meet the challenge.

    Kevin says: "Don't buy abridged"
    "too abridged"
    Overall

    I had read the paper version years ago and this had become my favourite Tom Clancy book. I had also enjoyed the details about the economic warefare on the US currency and share market. The abridged version is not the same. I wish hadn't overlooked the fact that I was buying an abridged version.
