In INFJ: Understanding & Relating with the Counselor, you'll learn about the INFJ Myers Briggs personality type. This book covers a variety of topics regarding INFJs (introverted intuitive feeling judging types) and why they make such great leaders of society. INFJs are important because they are pivotal in helping others discover their purposes in life. While others may feel lost at times, INFJs are individuals who can get them back on track.

In business, the right behaviors matter. But getting it right is tricky. Even when we acknowledge the need to change what we do and how we do it, life has a habit of getting in the way, upsetting even the best-laid plans. And just how do we manage those situations that can provoke even the most rational among us into behaving in ways we would rather forget?

Beautiful narration from an author who warmly provides perspective, anecdotes, and solutions for dealing with environmental triggers that - if we remain unaware - overwhelm and undermine our best intentions and most heartfelt goals.

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran-and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

Of all the glamorous stars of New York high society, none blazes brighter than Babe Paley. Her flawless face regularly graces the pages of Vogue, and she is celebrated and adored for her ineffable style and exquisite taste, especially among her friends - the alluring socialite Swans Slim Keith, C. Z. Guest, Gloria Guinness, and Pamela Churchill. By all appearances, Babe has it all. But beneath this elegantly composed exterior dwells a passionate woman - a woman desperately longing for true love and connection.

In this audiobook, I discuss how I make an income from my books on the back end, using email marketing and affiliate marketing. As an author, you already know about passive income and the freedom it can create in your life. By setting up the proper email marketing sequence, you'll be able to earn money on the back end of your books without having to be there. The idea here is to set up a system that is automated and that gives you the opportunities to share value and build relationships with your readers.

When Jen, the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever found, surfaces in Sherriff Walt Longmire's jurisdiction, it appears to be a windfall for the High Plains Dinosaur Museum - until Danny Lone Elk, the Cheyenne rancher on whose property the remains were discovered, turns up dead, floating face down in a turtle pond. With millions of dollars at stake, a number of groups step forward to claim her, including Danny's family, the tribe, and the federal government.

Even having hundreds of closed cases to his credit can't keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonizing over the crimes that don't get solved - and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end - one even Alex Delaware's expert insight can't explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case - because there's always a next one.

The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

Some wrongly believe you need to suffer through the entire performance, because that's what an audiobook is, before rating it. I couldn't get that far. I'd like to encourage Audible editors to keep its acquisition standards 'high', if not 'higher' to avoid narrators who are terrible at the accents they're attempting, to protect Audible customers from low-quality production values where, for example, the audio editor doesn't take the time to erase the sound of a narrator swallowing between each sentence or dramatically stating each and every sentence to such an extent that it all becomes the same over-dramatized pitch, etc. When Audible does this, we can be more assured of quality (like Breakfast at Tiffany's, say). Because even with the exchange policy, our time is worth something that can not be replaced. Please Audible, be discriminating, offer more guidelines, whatever, but protect us from the poor execution of books.

Tristan Moreau loves his job as chief administrative officer and personal assistant to Webber Kincaid, President, Chairman, and CEO of Kincaid International. It would be the perfect job...if only he hadn't fallen in love with his boss as well as the work. After two years, he's still doing everything in his power to keep his feelings hidden-mostly because he wants to protect the reputation of his famous boss but also because he wants to keep his job.

This writer has the ability to make writing look as hard as it is, unfortunately for the reader. Yet he has great potential if he learns what dialogue to leave out. Right now it's as boring as the dialog between two kids in high school. That isn't to say it needs to be unendingly clever, either - but a happy medium between the two might suffice. The potential? He creates two characters that appropriately exhibit tension thru dialog, pauses - then again, it could be that I so wanted the story to take off that I felt anxious for the characters. And the narrator? He was split - good in his male voices yet every time he had to 'narrate' a female character, the voice suddenly turned into a caricature of a female, not a real person at all.
Three stars for finishing. Now learn something from it and try again. Why? Because there's something there that hasn't yet been developed, called Voice. Don't stop. (Unless you're the potential reader.)
