What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when a mysterious couple suddenly appeared from out of nowhere, and then told you they were "ascended masters" who had come to reveal some shocking secrects of existence and teach you the miraculous power of advanced forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?

First of all I want to forgive Gary. This meetup with the two Ascended Masters Arten and Pursah is really far fetched. At one point he even wanted to touch Pursah's hand. I am really not sure whether this write-up of his few years' encounter with them are to sell as a guide to the more magical A Course in Miracle ACIM.

But to be truthful, Mr Gary's other 2 books that reference ACIM - The End of Reincarnation and Fearless Love, are very good.

It surprises me that a mystery novel written back in the 30s can give me such thrills & chills as the murder case slowly unraveled itself. Without giving away anything, the ending is both touching and reveals Detective Hercule Poirot as man with wits and heart.

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

I've listened to Gone Girl, didn't like it much.
But I gave Dark Places a chance.
Frankly, I didn't expect anything much. But the ending was = Wow!
Yes, the ending is also touching.
It's certainly worth listening till the explosive end.

Becoming Magic is book one of a complete course in becoming creator of your own exceptional life. In this book, I outline the exact steps which enabled me to move my own life from one of poverty and drudgery, to one of previously unimaginable wealth, purpose and joy. But Magic? I do hope you are joking! That's what I would have said, five or ten years ago. I once despised all things 'New-Age'; all these spiritual types and their airy-fairy views, their bad science and their irrational beliefs.

This is the best Law of Attraction (LOA) book that I've read (listened to). This book clearly reveals that most of us are applying this law backwards. Since this is practically a short book, I won't say much about it. But it does show you the path that most LOA books don't. Don't miss the companion books Doing Magic & Advanced Magic.

Presumed Innocent was the fiction debut of the decade - a magnetic work of suspense that earned Turow acclaim for his unparalleled storytelling gifts. Now, in a brilliant follow-up, Scott Turow stakes his claim as an American master, in a mesmerizing novel of law, family and deceit. Alejandro "Sandy" Stern - the brilliant defense lawyer from Presumed Innocent - comes home to discover that his wife of 30 years has committed suicide, leaving behind a web of mystery, money, and guilt.

I liked Sandy Stern in Presumed Innocent. In this novel, Sandy turned strange. His lust after his wife's death just don't rhyme with his character in Presumed. May be he was lonely. This novel read very much like a domestic affair. It doesn't have any great court scene. The only thing I liked were the twists. But the story moves too slowly to reach those defining moments.

Although I'm not an intra-day trader, I find the book filled with great trading advice. One thing that I learned to be a successful trader is - you gotta work hard! This really hit the nail on the head, in contrast to those trading system/course that promises you great profits for spending just 15 mins trading a day.
