    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Lincoln says: "Excellent Book on ADD"
    "A Wonderful way to look at ADD"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful way to be introduced to a unique way of being! It focuses on the positive aspects of having ADD. The information provided to people who are new to or dealing with a loved one with ADD is very clear and informative. And the ideas to help manage the condition are right on target. If you have ADD buy it and read the first part to find out how to use the book to help you. If someone you know has ADD buy it and read it, so you can understand what they are dealing with and how to best work with them and not against them.

    For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles' role as his father's enforcer. This time their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way....

    I admit I was skeptical of a side story. However, It was complete and very full in story line and character... expansion. This book can stand alone on its own. Or enhance the series in a very satisfying manner.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts. Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    I enjoy this series and I think this is the best book yet. All of the characters are so well developed that you feel like you are getting to know them over a life time. And the situations our heroine gets into are an interesting pairing between her inner monolog and her outer actions as are dictated by life. Enjoy!

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    I love this book. Their are enough twists and sub plots to make it quite an interesting listen even though it has a familiar plot. All of the characters are fully developed in the way it's written and are easily brought to life in the manner it's read. The story lingers on in my mind... maybe it is magic!
