David Federman has never felt appreciated. An academically gifted yet painfully forgettable member of his New Jersey high school class, the withdrawn, mild-mannered freshman arrives at Harvard fully expecting to be embraced by a new tribe of high-achieving peers. But, initially, his social prospects seem unlikely to change, sentencing him to a lifetime of anonymity. Then he meets Veronica Morgan Wells. Struck by her beauty, wit, and sophisticated Manhattan upbringing, David falls feverishly in love.

Little plot and story line overall. One keeps assuming something of climatic proportion will occur.

Due to his father's stage 2 Alzheimer's disease, Alexander Lynch located Dr. Ron Goldman who was researching Alzheimer's disease, and hired him to find a cure. Together with knowledge, a theory, and research, they developed a method of curing the disease. After only 21 days on the special diet they formulated, Alexander's father no longer had Alzheimer's and was mentally more alert than people half his age.

Expected more. Almost condescending narration. Families deserve more compassion. Writer basically is extension of real book by different author responsible for research.

By the man who helped invent the red-hot management process known as "Scrum", Scrum unveils what is wrong with the way we currently do work, and how a simple set of principles, applied in exactly the right sequence, can accelerate productivity and quality as much as 1200 percent. Scrum (which gets its name from the formation in rugby in which the whole team locks its arms to gain control of the ball) is the reason that Amazon can launch a new feature on its website every day.

Overview and title implied that this would help the ordinary person organize their life better. NOT TRUE! A complete waste of time.
