Not too long ago, there was no coming back from death. But now, with revolutionary medical advances, death has become just another serious complication. As a young medical student, Dr. David Casarett was inspired by the story of a two-year-old girl named Michelle Funk. Michelle fell into a creek and was underwater for over an hour. When she was found she wasn't breathing, and her pupils were fixed and dilated. That drowning should have been fatal. But after three hours of persistent work, a team of doctors and nurses was able to bring her back.

Overall this book was a waste of time. The author kept saying the same thing over and over again throughout the whole book. There were a few interesting stories but mainly the book was made up mostly of filler. Redundant, redundant, redundant!

What made the experience of listening to Flawless the most enjoyable?

A book about the Diamond business and those who find incredible ways to get their hands on 'the goods'.

Reluctant to launch an official investigation based on a relative's vague suspicions, the secretary asks John Mahoney to send his troubleshooter, DeMarco, to check out the story. As DeMarco and his friend Emma, a retired CIA agent, began to investigate, they come to the terrifying realization that an espionage ring has infiltrated the naval base.

In Catching the Big Fish, internationally acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch provides a rare window into his methods as an artist, his personal working style, and the immense creative benefits he has experienced from the practice of meditation. Lynch describes the experience of "diving within" and "catching" ideas like fish and then preparing them for television or movie screens, and other mediums in which he works, such as painting, music, and design.

This is directly gets to the creative process and where it comes from. It explains those Aha moments we have all had and makes you realize how important it is to take time and dive deep into the deep waters of the mind. As Mr. Lynch says, 'Where the Big Fish Are.'

Also, David Lynch turns out to be a great reader who catches you right away. I really enjoyed this little book!

Don't miss it!

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal, and a homicide detective's struggle with his own rules of conduct. When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job.

Gripping but not fulfilling. The plot moved right along with many twists and turns. However, there was somewhat of a soap opera element and the romance element never quite clicked.
