    Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires....The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning...along with the houses in which they were hidden. Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames...never questioned anything until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

    Story

    Enjoyed rereading a classic story, written to engae you and make you think outside the designated box. Be careful world, some of this book rings so true for America today. We must always learn from the past so as to not relive the same mistakes in the future. There is a cost to freedom...but it is worth it.

    Story

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Story

    Mostly enjoyed this book as it called on emotions and challenged preconceived ideas or long-held truths. While I may not agree with this author's perspective in whole, I enjoy being challenged as to my beliefs and why I hold them.
    A bit longwinded at times, but worth pursuing to the end.

    This has become a society of complainers, as people spend far too much time griping about problems and not enough time actually tackling them. Now Dr. Laura Schlessinger steps in to help folks conquer this widespread, "poor me" mindset and take action to do and be their best in Stop Whining, Start Living, her most personal book to date.

    Mark says: "Dr. Laura always helps me change my attitude."
    "Excellent wisdom for today"

    Story

    Practical commonsense approach to relationships, even difficult situations. Wisdom for a world more prone to pop a pill than work through life's challenges.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
