    Every human journey is filled with emotional tunnels: the loss of a loved one or end of a relationship, aging and illness, career disappointments, or just an ongoing sense of dissatisfaction with life. Society tends to view these "dark nights" in clinical terms as obstacles to be overcome as quickly as possible.

    Thomas, I've loved your books in the past and consider you a mentor. This book felt like you where trying to prove youself--you sounded depressed. I couldn't finish it--it was making me depressed. I hope life gets better soon.
    I'm still a fan!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What did you love best about A Discovery of Witches?

    Deborah created a fun and wonderfully romantic Vampire & Witch Love story. What I love most is how she elegantly weaves in history and because Matthew is such an old vampire (about 1500 years old) there's a lot of fascinating people and time periods to work with.

    I look forward to getting to know Diana & Matthew even more as their relationship unfold in future books. The other rich characters, good and bad, bring there world to life.


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    Great reader. Jennifer is easy to listen to and I'm a voice snob!

  • A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

    Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers - creative and emphatic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't.

    "A Whole New Mind"
    Overall

    Imagine living in a world where people used their whole brain. According to Daniel Pink, that's just what's happening. Pink explains beautifully why and how our world is changing from the long-time belief that linier left-brain thinking is better, to valuing the creative, outside-of-box, right-brain thinkers. Pinks explains that left-brain MBA's are being replaced by computers and more cost effective out-sourcing. BFA's (bachelors of fine arts) are now in high demand. Creativity is not something easily replace by a computer or out-sourced. While linier thinking is and will always be important, companies are looking for solutions-thinkers, and that's whole-brain. Pink's book is a must read if you want to stay competitive in today's market.
