This was quite the eye opener. Gives you a better perspective on the history of the NCAA, NFL and how far the NFL professional athletes has come. I can say that Dr. Jerry Argovitz did what was right - not easy. As Bruce Lee said, “Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”

An all-new Dresden Files story headlines this urban fantasy short story collection starring the Windy City's favorite wizard. From the Wild West to the bleachers at Wrigley Field, humans, zombies, incubi, and even fey royalty appear, ready to blur the line between friend and foe. In the never-before-published "Zoo Day", Harry treads new ground as a dad, while fan-favorite characters Molly Carpenter, his onetime apprentice, White Council Warden Anastasia Luccio, and even Bigfoot stalk through the pages of more classic tales.

Loved all the compiled short stories. I really hope each individual such as Molly Carpenter, Harry’s daughter Maggie and Mouse, his Foo Temple dog get a spin off as Harry. All the stories were interesting. Can’t wait for the next installment of my favorite wizard, Harry Dresden with everyone else in the Dresden World 😊😉😏

Dalinar Kholin's Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost. The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

As always, Brandon Sanderson goes beyond amazing. From plot to subplot you are throughly entwined into each characters struggles within themselves and their surroundings. The suspense heading to each new chapter has you unable to stop listening and hit the pause button. Each dilemma keeps you on your seat. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are awesome as narrators. Can’t get enough of them. Looking forward to the 4th installment. This dilemma has me on the edge. Love it 😊

The greatest investment advisor of the 20th century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" - which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies - has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market Bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

Trevor, you surprised me. I thought it would be all jokes (though I did enjoy the many laughs) but these are life lesson experiences that everyone, especially young black men, should listen to and learn. Wisdom, Knowledge and Courage all balled up in one amazing life story. I loved this book. I’m going to give this gift to my son. TY for sharing it

I loved this book. Such an interesting and entertaining way to tell about our past and present beliefs. New Gods are made every day with some faith. Faith is a powerful force. It doesn't have to be in an organized religion. It can be in anything, which therefore brings it to life and gives it/us power. This book makes you think and examine all your old beliefs. There is no right or wrong answer. Can't wait to see how they depict some scenes on the STARZ "AMERICAN GODS" tv cable series! Can't wait for the sequel - AMERICAN GODS Pt 2. Looking forward to it.

Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper-sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense. If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.

Everyone should read this book. After reading, or should I say having it read to me with narrator putting the right emphasis on each part, you'll understand what's going on in America and around the world in general. If you don't know your history, you are bound to repeat it. This book helped me see American Capitalism in a totally different light and made me appreciate the US Constitution. Real Talk - If you really want to be aware on how you can make a difference in your city, state and country - read/listen to this book. And besides, this book had me laughing out loud all through it. Glen Beck is HILARIOUS 😂 I never thought I would say this but "Thank you, Glen Beck" 😊

If you think ghosts are only responsible for hauntings, think again. The Demonologist reveals the grave religious process behind supernatural events and how it can happen to you. Used as a text in seminaries and classrooms, this is one book you can't put down. For over five decades, Ed and Loraine Warren have been considered America's foremost experts on demonology and exorcism. With over 3,000 investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses. Don't miss the Warrens in the new blockbuster movie The Conjuring.
