    Here is LAPD Detective Harry Bosch as we've never seen him before, in three never-before-collected stories. In "Suicide Run", the apparent suicide of a beautiful young starlet turns out to be much more sinister than it seems. In "Cielo Azul", Bosch is haunted by a long-ago closed case: the murder of a teenage girl who was never identified. In "One Dollar Jackpot", Bosch works the murder of a professional poker player whose skills have made her more than one enemy.

    Story

    This is interesting that anyone your write this type of book. I can see this type of release before a major new book to recap all of the previous stories, a quick refresher as sort.
    But just out of the blue like this, strange.

    The book is fine, it just provides quick snips of the previous stories. If you just want to refresh your mind on a few books, this is fine.

    The world is changing - the government has seized control of almost everything and kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother, Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend, except that the new government is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Jason says: "Quick listen, but seems quickly written."
    "Fun to listen"
    Overall

    This book is fine. It's more for the kids than adults. To book takes you through a fun story in the magical and dark spirit side. There is no real plot but still, will keep your attention.
    Let your kids have a listen, they may like it.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Story
    (1717)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "Still the greatest"
    Overall

    I always liked Albert. Since I was a young boy, I always considered him to be the greatest man that ever lived. I did know many things about his live, but in this book I found a few more. It provided a different vision of the man, finding out things about his personality provides a different incite about the full picture of his life. This is a good book, make sure you like him enough, it is a long reading, but the time passes quickly. It's all relative i guess.

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

    Tim says: "Some good ideas but, not so sure. . ."
    "Put in in perspective"
    Overall

    This book is fun to listen to. It may have some real out of this world ideas, can they be done, I don't know. It does provide food for tought. It has ideas that make you think of you own situation. Makes you consider the direction you may want to take.
    Keep your mind open, this book is a good source of information for all.

    Like my title says, just keep reading. It takes a bit to get into it, but it is well worth the time.
    Excellent books.
