Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

Unlike many personal finance books, How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any was specifically written for Americans who struggle to make it on a monthly basis. It provides a respectful, no-nonsense look at the difficult realities of our modern economy along with an easy-to-follow path toward better financial stability that will give hope to even the most financially strapped households.

Financial advise from what sounds like a high school graduate who failed to look up what the law was. Horrible assumptions are made about tax, accounting, banking and bankruptcy throughout this book about how you lose your retirement if you file bankruptcy or how can't force mediation if you are in a foreclosure. The retirement exemption is just about unlimited and a federal statute is often used in foreclosures to force mediation although there may only be one state statute. I shudder and pity anyone who listens to this for foreclosure or bankruptcy advise. This author just gets it all wrong over, over and over again. The book is largely just a basic reworking of Dave Ramsey who also uses scare tactics and assumption about debt and bankruptcy. I do like the overall attitudes like debt is bad. But some of the things he is wrong about make you to come out of your chair. Debt is bad if it does not end up giving you a profit and normally should be avoided. But debt and bankruptcy both may be proper at times. Both may be a necessary answer when it is appropriate. Debt is not normally proper to purchase consumer items. Debt may be proper if it returns a profit (ROI). Bankruptcy is a surgical tool to eliminate debt when debt becomes an illness to financial health like a cancer. How can these financial gurus get this so wrong after 3 different government studies have shown bankruptcy increases personal wealth when it is used strategically. He comes off with the attitude all students have to repay student loans in full when there are income based repayment plans, undue hardship discharges and over 100 programs to reduce or eliminate the student loans. He just simply gets it wrong over and over and over but with the best of intentions. I agree student loans need to return the investment which is what he is trying to say but it is incorrect to say student loans can never be managed or discharged administratively or in bankruptcy. The author does a slightly better job at recognizing debt and bankruptcy has a place than Dave Ramsey. But his assumptions about the law made me want to laugh at some times and vomit at other times. The author assumes many legal items which he just gets dead wrong because he is not a CPA or experienced bankruptcy attorney.

Just as you have a different love language, you also hear and express the words and gestures of apology in a different language. New York Times best-selling author Gary Chapman has teamed with counselor Jennifer Thomas on this groundbreaking study of the way we apologize, discovering that it's not just a matter of will - it's a matter of how. By helping people identify the languages of apology, this book clears the way toward healing and sustaining vital relationships.

I had hoped for some real step by step methods on how to Vlog. Instead much of the book seemed to be about her and her relationships. I remember little about the book other than how similar it was to root canal surgery.
