  • Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Paula says: "Easy reading, straight forward, life changing"
    "For every word in Love Wins, read ten in the Bible"
    Overall

    Rob asks good questions. I think this is a book of questions, a thought provoking one. Some of it's ideas are great, some are dangerous and need to be accepted only with prayer and study of the scriptures. My advice, for every word you read in Love Wins, read ten from the Bible. If you don't have a daily time in the Word and a strong relationship with God, you might want to wait with this book.

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Story

    This is my first Lee Child novel. I felt it was a good read, very movie-like and I might pick up another book in the series soon. But this book did not impact my life in any meaningful way.

  • Seabiscuit: An American Legend

    Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    Story

    A great story! I didn't know I'd enjoy reading about horses this much. It did not feel like a historic account, but more like a novel with great characters with, suspense and an amazing story. Thank you Laura Hillenbrand for such a terrific read.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better Than Made to Stick"
    "Dan and Chip are so good at this!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I found great insight about the way we think and how we make decisions. Check out their other book called "Made to Stick" if you have the chance!

    Overall

    Poor quality, didn't really enjoy Dave shouting at me.
    It's not a book, it's more like a radio show. Maybe it's just not for me.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "The best novel I've ever read!"
    Overall

    Absolutely awesome. Every time I had a few spare minutes I used to listen to this book. I haven't read too many war novels, this is my second or so. I wouldn't let my wife read it because of all the depictions of cruelty and violence, but I was amused, shocked, saddened and inspired by this book. Great read.
