    This incredible story shows how John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. history. For 31 years a man who called himself BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) terrorized the city of Wichita, Kansas, sexually assaulting and strangling a series of women, taunting the police with frequent communications, and bragging about his crimes to local newspapers and TV stations.

    Story

    Our narcissistic and materialistic society breeds these sociopaths. This book is an excellent expose of what goes on inside the minds of ruthless serial killers, in this case BTK. The author goes into alot of depth beginning with what happened and then moving on to how it happened and then on to why it happened, so you get similar material under different angles.

  • Kiss That Frog!: 21 Ways to Turn Negatives into Positives

    Just like the lonely princess in the fairy tale who was reluctant to lock lips with a warty frog and transform him into a handsome prince, something stops many of us short of attaining our dreams. Our negative thoughts, emotions, and attitudes can threaten to keep us from achieving all that we're capable of. Here best-selling author and speaker Brian Tracy and his daughter, therapist Christina Tracy Stein, provide a set of practical, proven strategies anyone can use to turn those negative frogs into positive princes.

    Story

    I agree with other reviewers in that this book isn't reasonable. Thinking positively isn't only about replacing negative emotions with positive ones, but about living in truth. For example, the book condemns all guilt and claims anyone who uses guilt over another is wrong. This is simply incorrect; thinking positive is more than pretending one is not guilty and replacing negative feelings with positive ones; it seems reasonable that positive thinking is living in truth; that may mean ackowledging our guilt and doing something to remove it and then building a better life. Positive thinking is useless in my view if it's not based on truth.

    Since Obama took office, conservative pundits have been mainstays on the best-seller list. And now, the best-selling author and political legend Pat Buchanan weighs in with a warning against not only the dangers that the country faces under Obama, but the risk of sliding into irrelevancy that the Republican party faces if it chooses to forget its core values. As he shows in this incisive book, liberal policy-making and unhindered globalization have eroded America’s economic strength.

    Story

    Excellent explanation of what is happening to our country. The country is being systematically destroyed and the author explains how that is happening. A bonus is that the book is relatively short and read by the author himself.

    After her plane crashes, a 17-year-old girl spends 11 days walking through the Peruvian jungle. Against all odds, with no food, shelter, or equipment, she gets out. A better equipped group of adult survivors of the same crash sits down and dies. What makes the difference?

    Story

    The author seems to view man as no more than a gifted ape who when the pressure is on acts no better than a hairy gorilla. At every interval the author says man is a product of eons of evolution and that's why he acts in a primal way. Man thinks, that's immaterial; to survive he has to think and not just act by his estimative sense.I suppose the author thinks that if he tells us that man is nothing more than a product of eons of evolution enough times we'll actually start believing we are no better than hairy gorillas.
