Wells, with his former CIA bosses Ellis Shafer and Vinnie Duto, has uncovered a staggering plot, a false-flag operation to convince the President to attack Iran. But they have no hard evidence, and no one at Langley or the White House will listen. Now the President has set a deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran - furious and frightened - have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells, Shafer, and Duto know they have only twelve days to find the proof they need.

I found this book to be a great example of Berenson's John Wells series. I also recommend you read the next book where the story is continued.

By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counterintuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on the important ones and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

Interesting concept taken too far. Extremely repetitive. Unlike others, I found nothing wrong with the narration. The problem is the material. The preface and first chapters were good. After that, I had to keep skipping ahead hoping to find the next concept. Eventually, I just gave up and deleted the book. Yet another new set of choices in today's world: Audio books.
