For more than a decade, Marion Jones was hailed as the "the fastest woman on the planet". At the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, she became the first woman ever to win five medals at one Olympics. She seemed to have it all - fame, fortune, talent, and international acclaim. Now she is a convicted felon. On the Right Track is the candidly told story of how Marion came to grips with her lies and the consequences of her actions, and how she found meaning in all of it.

I truly wanted the information this book holds. Great information inside. Really hard in a audio format. All the information regarding your blood type along with all of the other blood types are mixed together. Be prepared to take notes as the information jumps from one topic to another. The reader did a good job.

Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

Although born to rule, Aidan lives as a scribe in a remote Irish monastery on the far, wild edge of Christendom. Secure in work, contemplation, and dreams of the wider world, a miracle bursts into Aidan's quiet life. He is chosen to accompany a small band of monks on a quest to the fabled city of Byzantium, where they are to present the beautiful and costly hand-illuminated Book of Kells to the emperor of all Christendom.

As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.
