Awful, amateurish political "thriller" about first US woman president. Far fetched story of president who is poisoned, women VP takes over his role (and calls her father a lot on the phone) and then attempts are made on her life so that the Aryan Brotherhood can overthrow the government. Lots of action takes place in a bathroom. I'm not kidding. The breathless narrator recants this absurd tale. No thanks!
I did not find this book to be a good beginners guide. It started off OK with the idea of "balance", then went to quickly into too many details, jargon and examples. This seems a good approach for someone who already understand the game, but poor "pedagogy" for newbies. Stay with the "idea" of football, the goals, etc. before getting into details which should come towards the end of the book. Not user friendly.
Appalling. The author owns vacation rental properties near Orlando. The "book" is almost all about his properties, website, testimonials from guests, and biased views about why vacation rental properties are better than hotels. His main comment about Disney World is that DW is expensive, so you save money by staying in his property. You should not have to pay for this; he should pay you.
I bought this because I expected that, written by an MSW, would have some intelligence. But no, it is an angry personal rant by a man who had a hard time getting workman's comp, tax issues, bullying, etc. It is rambling, incoherent anger fest, poorly written. The narrator is also terrible, dramatizing the rant aspect. I couldn't understand the point.
I have listened to this book over 3 times since I bought it a few weeks ago. I listened before a recent to trip to Northern Florida, again while on the trip, and again when I came home. It has fascinating details about the state history and touches on many aspects: ethnic and race relations, politics, skirmishes, geology, cultural history, geography, tourism, etc. It also focuses on different parts of the state so you get good representation. Good for general listening as well as for trips.
The narrator sound like she is reading to a first grade class. She has the pronunciation and intonation one would use with young children, No only that, but this is a terrible problem in a action, adventure book. I don't understand how this could happen. It is so bad I couldn't finish the book.
Compared to other of Wood's books, including Orchid Beach, this is a real dud. Its just about identifying and apprehending who is a sexual murderer. Sprinkled with other things, like "romance" and job status. Most of it was inane, since there were only 2 suspects, one of whom was identified halfway through the book. The rest was setting traps to catch him. Yawn.
This could be a very good book, and quite accurate, if the writer (and narrator) weren't so dramatic. Greenberg clearly has an axe to grind, so his approach is very slanted. Most clinicians (I am one) know there are many many flaws in DSM IV and 5; we work around it. But Greenberg takes it too literally. There are some issues ("diagnosis" needed for insurance, drug companies exploitation) but in general, i day-to-day clinical practice, DSM is not a "bible" nor a main ingredient.
As a result, Greenberg intends an anti-psychiatry screen rather than a balanced critique of DSM, and the profession. Its not fair, nor accurate; it is a one-sided approach.
A riveting story of what probably is a routine type case. Police looking for "numbers" do shoddy work and send an innocent young man to jail. The legal side of the story and efforts to exonerate him are a well-told-tale.
SO much static that you can't her it. Therefore it is a total waste, and really annoying too.
Slow moving, focus on Minnesota. But the characters of the children, and the narrator's portrayal is so annoying I could hardly listen. Its not "cute" its irritating.
