    A series of horrifying events occur in quick succession in the same upscale L.A. neighborhood. A backyard renovation unearths an infant's body, buried 60 years ago. And soon thereafter in a nearby park, another disturbingly bizarre discovery is made not far from the body of a young woman shot in the head. Helping LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis to link these eerie incidents is brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware. But even the good doctor's vast experience with matters both clinical and criminal might not be enough.

    Story

    As with most long running series, the characters get to be a bit old. I think Dr. Delaware should think about retirement. But if you are a big fan of the series, or the sub-genre, you will probably enjoy this book well enough.

    This is a great book for anyone struggling with or trying to understand ADD. However, the long numbered lists embedded within other lists made me think I had ADD. Otherwise, it is full of useful information and a great introduction to the topic.

    Charlie Howard isn’t only a part-time crime writer and part-time thief; he’s also a magician. For his next trick, he’ll relieve Josh Masters, the famous illusionist vying for the affections of Charlie’s friend Victoria, of $60,000 in casino chips stashed in his hotel safe. Revenge would be sweet - if there weren’t a dead redhead floating in Masters’ bathtub and if Masters hadn’t just disappeared in a puff of smoke after cheating at roulette. Convinced that Charlie was in on the scam, the casino’s owners give him an impossible mission....

    I will be more careful next time. I read it to the end, thinking that surely it would get better, but it did not. I will not read another book in this series.

    A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder's online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy's free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject; and Academy techniques are being employed with exciting results....

    Story

    Sal Khan is one of the big thinkers of the century. But he just stumbled across his big ideas while helping out a family member. His Khan Academy is often thought to be anti-teacher and anti-school, but it is not. It would be interesting to learn more about the application of his ideas to younger children and to topics other than science and math. Read this book if you care about the future of public education.

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Story

    I heard the author speak at a conference and was not expecting to learn much more from reading the book. However, this is much more than a self help, power of positive thinking type book. He gives research based reasons for his suggestions on how to make specific changes that can help you succeed and be happier.

    This is an amazing book. I laughed and I cried. Although aimed at teens, I would recommend this book for anyone. He gives a true picture of the life of modern day Native Americans living on reservations.
