    Starting a blog is the first introduction into making money online for many. However, people believe that making money from a blog is hard, yet that couldn't be further from the truth. Most blogging information on the Web will provide you with outdated information that might be fun but not very profitable. When I first started blogging, I tried all of these tactics, and soon learned that they were horrible for actually making a profit. At that point, I sought out the best information I could find and paid thousands of dollars studying what makes blogs successful and what doesn't.

    good book with a lot of great information, but this does not work as an audio book. I'll be picking up a physical copy of the book, but I will not recommend this audio version for anybody.

    Former Marine Force Reconnaissance officer Logan West emerges from a blackout after drinking away the worries of his ruined marriage and PTSD, an all too familiar scene for the recovering alcoholic. But he wakes to more than a killer hangover: A professional mercenary has been sent to capture him. After an embattled showdown, Logan impulsively answers the dead man's ringing phone, triggering a hasty rescue of Logan's estranged wife and a global race against the clock to track down an unknown organization....

    the story is creative and captivating, but the action sequences get very repetitive. Betley does a good job with details of settings, but has a hard time describing the mindset of someone with PTSD.

    Story

    The idea of this story is good, but the writing felt choppy and not well thought out. The dialog came across like it was written by a high school student, but the descriptions were actually very well done. Plot points were very easy to predict also.

    John Lago is a very bad guy. But he’s the very best at what he does. And what he does is infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern. Interns are invisible. That’s the secret behind HR, Inc., the elite “placement agency” that doubles as a network of assassins for hire who take down high-profile targets that wouldn’t be able to remember an intern’s name if their lives depended on it.

    The lovable man for all ages, who captured America's heart in the #1 best-selling novel Forrest Gump and in the blockbuster film, returns in the long-awaited sequel to the book hailed by Larry King as "the funniest novel I have ever read." A little older, and wiser in his own unique way, he is still running through the kaleidoscopic events of our times -- and straight into the age of greed and instant gratification known as the 1980s.

    What was most disappointing about Winston Groom’s story?

    Groom appeared to have written this book in a hurry in an awkward attempt to be funny, rather than to capture the essence that is the original Forest Gump. Characters are not believable and portrayed completely inaccurately. Groom should have stopped while he was ahead.

    From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind - a disease that's unknown, unstoppable, and deadly. But it is merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow. Aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, operatives of SIGMA Force, search for answers to the bizarre affliction. But there are others with far less altruistic intentions.

    What made the experience of listening to The Judas Strain the most enjoyable?

    Like all of Rollins's books, this book was thought provoking, engaging, and thoroughly entertaining.


    Would you recommend The Judas Strain to your friends? Why or why not?

    I recommend James Rollins to anyone who I think might enjoy his books.


    Any additional comments?

    Trying not to give any spoilers away, but James, why can't you just let events play out naturally? The end of this book was the worst in the entire series because you chose not to make the hard decision.

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    This book was extremely helpful in understanding myself and my wife. Some of the examples were like Susan Cain had observed interactions in my home and put them down on paper.
