Robert Kiyosaki - author of the #1 personal finance book of all time - has built a legacy around simplifying complex and often-confusing subjects like money and investing. He continues to challenge conventional wisdom and asks the questions that will help listeners sift through today's information overload to uncover ways to assess what's real... and what isn't. And use truth and facts as a foundation for taking control of their financial lives. In this new book, Robert fights what’s "fake" and helps listeners differentiate between what’s real...and what isn’t.

Sally Field always came across as a happy go lucky person, that was far from the truth. Her fear, self doubt even self loathing at times never appeared in her public persons. I wonder if the abuse she went through growing u caused it all. I was expecting a good time fun loving book, that was not what I got. Instead I got a raw, sad, truthful, complex life story of an American acting icon.

From the beet fields of North Dakota to the wilderness campgrounds of California to an Amazon warehouse in Texas, people who once might have kicked back to enjoy their sunset years are hard at work. Underwater on mortgages or finding that Social Security comes up short, they're hitting the road in astonishing numbers, forming a new community of nomads: RV and van-dwelling migrant laborers, or "workampers".

I'd say the first 70% of the book was good except for the writers whining and complaining. You learned a lot about this type of living. But then the author went off the road. She began spouting off about white privilege when they should have been rousted by the police when "camping" in places they probably should not have been (I guess the police just can't be nice and feel compassion for people). Then she cheats on a drug test by taking another persons urine because she had smoked pot. So ethically her reputation is shot, so anything she may state is tainted in my book.

Before becoming America's first-ever female network chief meteorologist or appearing on Dancing with the Stars, ABC News's Ginger Zee checked herself into a mental health hospital.

Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One. is Ginger's heartbreaking, hilarious, and harshly honest life story - from Dickhead's (you won't soon forget that name) deck on Lake Michigan to her storm-chasing dream at ABC News.

I knew of Ginger Zee from her time in Chicago and chasing storms with Reed Timmer, but listening to her story shocked me. I never would have guessed she went through so many struggles and came through to the other side. Its a story of struggle, laughter and a lot of craziness . So glad she survived and thrived!

A scathing, sardonic exploration of Silicon Valley tech culture, laying bare the greed, hubris, and retrograde politics of an industry that aspires to radically transform society for its own benefit. This enlightening audiobook is a must-listen for anyone interested or involved in the tech industry. At the height of the start-up boom, journalist Corey Pein set out for Silicon Valley with little more than a smartphone and his wits. His goal: to learn how such an overhyped industry could possibly sustain itself as long as it has.

The author states that this whole concept came about because at the end of her ted talk (the last ten seconds) she threw out the 5 second rule. And realistically that is really all the time you need to understand it, not 6 hours. Here is the basic concept, you count down from 5:
5...4...3...2...1...blast off, you then take action. Its no different than nikes tag line just do it (interesting enough the author tries to defend the difference in the book).

The author is very entertaining when she reads her book, but its not worth the price of the book.

Save your money and your time.

In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.
