  • Overdiagnosed: Making People Sick in Pursuit of Health

    Going against the conventional wisdom reinforced by the medical establishment and Big Pharma that more screening is the best preventative medicine, Dr. Gilbert Welch builds a compelling counterargument that what we need are fewer, not more, diagnoses. Documenting the excesses of American medical practice that labels far too many of us as sick, Welch examines the social, ethical, and economic ramifications of a health-care system that unnecessarily diagnoses and treats patients.

    I was really beginning to wonder if I was the only person who thought cancer screenings were WAY over-done. So glad to know that I'm not! The author's offer some great information in this book and I would highly recommend it. While it is a book about medicine and statistical information, I felt the authors did a wonderful job of making the information easily digestible and interesting.

    Now I need to arm myself for the inevitable battles I'm sure I will have with my own doctors when I tell them I will NOT be having all of these screenings they are trying to push on me.

  • The Profiler's Daughter: Sky Stone, Book 1

    The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

    If you could sum up The Profiler's Daughter in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed the story very much, but the narrator was overly dramatic. I think the audiobook would have been significantly better with a different narrator.

    What did you like best about The Lost Prince? What did you like least?

    I liked hearing about Ethan's life after Meggie left for the Nevernever. However, I thought the author was rushed in writing this book. I love, love, love the Iron Fey series. This book did not have the depth of character that the other books had. I was very disappointed in it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was terrible. He mispronounced words and names and he was not able to change his voice enough to distinguish between the characters. Very disappointing performance. It appears he had not listened to any of the Iron Fey series - which would have been very helpful for him.

    I heard about this book a couple of years ago, but finally purchased and listened to it. It has helped me to understand so many things about myself and those that I love. It has also helped me to better understand my co-workers and to improve my relationships at work. Understanding a person's love language helps you to understand how to make that person know that you appreciate what they do for you. My love language is gifts. At the moment I don't receive enough, but after listening to this book I now know that I need to give in a loving spirit the type of love that others need in order to be blessed with the type of love that I need. To do so with a loving heart, regardless of past hurts, allows me to show that I am willing to love others unconditionally. And isn't the best gift the one you give, not the one you receive? Just knowing that I have found a way to ensure that the people in my life feel loved and appreciated by me is the best gift that I can give to myself.

    I highly recommend this book, not just for your marriage, but for every relationship you have in your life.
