A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far - a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes. "Wake up, genius." So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn't published a book for decades.

In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

Brilliantly written book! I don't mind spending my money on a Stephen King book, because I always know exactly what I am going to get.

If you could sum up Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis in three words, what would they be?

Give me more...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis?

I found the entire book to be intriguing. If you are or have been considering becoming a student of hypnosis this book is for you.

What does Anthony Jacquin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Having the ability to hear Anthony's voice gives you a real sense how he performs his craft.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved when Anthony started explaining rapid inductions. I was able to trance family and friends a lot faster using his strategies.

Widely used in classes, as well as sold to people operating successfully in the business world, the eagerly awaited revision of Influence reminds the listener of the power of persuasion. Cialdini organizes compliance techniques into six categories based on psychological principles that direct human behavior: reciprocation, consistency, social proof, liking, authority, and scarcity.

Although I have read this book many years ago, a refresher was awesome. It was good to see how the principals still apply today.
