  • Sync: How Order Emerges from Chaos in the Universe, Nature, and Daily Life

    At once elegant and riveting, Sync tells the story of the dawn of a new science. Steven Strogatz, a leading mathematician in the fields of chaos and complexity theory, explains how enormous systems can synchronize themselves, from the electrons in a superconductor to the pacemaker cells in our hearts. He shows that although these phenomena might seem unrelated on the surface, at a deeper level there is a connection, forged by the unifying power of mathematics.

    Ryan says: "Engaging, but maybe better suited for non-audio"
    "Not as intriguing as I expected."

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    CAROLYN says: "TOUCHING & EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER OF PASSION"
    "Too muck like 50 Shades"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It is just a series of sex scenes and descriptions of "his wonderful body".


    Has Bared to You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't remember one.


    Could you see Bared to You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, it is too X rated.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not checked to see which book was written first, but this book is almost identical in story line to 50 Shades of Grey. Hmmmmm....
