    Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big-time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron's prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Suddenly Myron is plunged into a baffling mystery of sex and blackmail.

    I like the appeal of the type of hero cast in Myron. Complex, conflicted, but strong of purpose and a web of supporting characters that are also admirable. I like Harlan Coben anyway for a great read, but am especially looking forward to more stories that include Myron.

    This leading-edge program by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of the non-physical entity Abraham, will help you understand the emotions that you've been experiencing all of your life. Instead of the out-of-control, knee-jerk reactions that most people have to their ever-changing life experience, this work will put those responses into a broader context. You'll come to understand what emotions are, what each of them means, and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

    Story

    Altough a big fan of this series, I just didn't appreciate this book. In the forward they claim that this is their best book to date and I just personally didn't agree. The topic seemed disjointed in the telling, Jerry the second best reader was pretty flat and the basic premis was that of giving examples in daily life. Which might be the key for someone else, but wasn't for me. There are other examples througout all their work that resonate and this topic is covered quite thoroughly in the Vortex. To me it felt more like an addendum than it did a 'best book' with anything new to contribute.

    In my opinion The Law of Attraction, Money and the Law of Attraction and The Vortex are all great books covering all the teachings and if starting out on this journey I'd recommend starting there and using this as more of a filler, which will provide examples of how these principles can be applied in daily life, but only via the examples they have chosen, which may or maynot have great meaning in your life.

    Story

    As a big fan of this whole series by Esther and Jerry Hicks I felt (very briefly and possibly oversimplified) that the whole 2 Part series covered all the bases, with reinforcement on key areas, but that Part 2 especially offered a whole lot in the way of self-diagnosis (Emotional Guidance Scale) and finding the cure (22 Proven Processes). It tied a lot of things together and if you're a fan of the workshop it gives you all kinds of fun things to try out... thus breathing fresh air into that process alone.

    I'll admit that Esther is the better speaker, but I found Jerry (may he rest in peace) very soothing.

    However you should NOTE that I found it more effective to have the book version as well because I felt I needed the Emotional Guidance Scale (that they refer to constantly) in writing and I also appreicated having the written version of the 22 processes. I wrote to Audible and these sections they refer to as inserts were not provided in pdf format. That could have been extremely helpful, but the online version of the book is very reasonably priced.

    Enjoy

    His name is etched on the door of his Manhattan office: LEONID McGILL , PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR. It's a name that takes a little explaining, but he's used to it. Ex-boxer, hard drinker, in a business that trades mostly in cash and favors: McGill's an old-school P.I. working a city that's gotten fancy all around him. Fancy or not, he has always managed to get by - keep a roof over the head of his wife and kids, and still manage a little fun on the side - mostly because he's never been above taking a shady job for a quick buck.

    Matthew says: "constant back story to do the heavy lifting."
    "Meet Leonid"
    Overall

    Unfamiliar with Mr. Mosley as I am this was a wonderful introduction to his new character Leonid. Character thoroughly enjoyed as well as the cadence of the reader. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

    Acclaimed author Joseph J. Ellis penned the National Book Award-winning American Sphinx and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Founding Brothers, a fixture on The New York Times best seller list for an entire year, and one of the most popular history books of all time. Now this master historian turns his attention to the most exalted American hero, Founding Father and first President George Washington.

    Gerard says: "Distracted By Narrator"
    "Speed it up or perish..."
    Overall

    This is a well written historical account about our founding father George Washington, but you will not survive the reading if you don't at least increase the speed to 1.5X. Actually I enjoyed it at 2X myself.

    An unimaginably powerful computer has fallen into unimaginably evil hands. Covert-One agent Jon Smith flies to Paris to find the forces wielding an all-powerful, secret DNA computer. Following a trail that leads him across two continents, Smith uncovers a web of deception that could cost millions of lives and reshape the world.

    Marc says: "The Paris Option (unabridged)"
    "Too many words too little imagination"
    Overall

    For those of you who can still remember how the Osterman Weekend changed your reading habits and the standards of thrillers forever you will be sorely disappointed by this collaboration on a Lundlum novel published after his death in 2001. Firstly, it is way too long and the permise was just so unblievable... a DNA computer? That morphs into something the more it is used.. is that like DNA? I don't think so. I still gave it a solid 3 because of the sheer enjoyment I have derived over the last several decades with Mr. Ludlum as my companion. But this book showed absolutely no imagination. The narrow escapes are tired and overused. In the immortal worlds of Jason Borne and Carlos the Jackal no one gets out alive! If you want to preserve the purity of your Robert Ludlum memories, story lines and downright thrills you will skip this attempt to continue on in his name. As sad as it is to say goodbye.

    Everyone wants to live longer and feel younger. The information and exercises in You: Breathing Easy will teach listeners both to develop healthier, easier breathing techniques and to implement meditation and relaxation practices that will help them breathe easier in all aspects of their lives.

    Mark says: "Interesting, very little about breathing."
    "Well thought out..."
    Overall

    This is a well thought out audio presented by two top professionals that can speak to the lay-person. A wonderful overview that doesn't bog us all down in more detail than we need. If more detail is required there is a pdf supplement. The second chapter is a well done exercise on relaxation and meditation, all part of the breathing process. Definitely a keeper.
