    Celestial Navigation for the Complete Idiot is groundbreaking not because of what it has, but what it doesn't have: no mathematics problems; no astronomical talk; and no big words you've never heard of. Sailor-author Gene Grossman finally breaks this wonderful subject down into plain English and explains it in such a way that you will no longer have any excuse to claim that you know nothing about the valuable boater's subject of celestial navigation.

    In recent months, trade agreements have moved from the arcane pages of academic journals to the front pages of newspapers, from university lecture halls to the presidential campaign trail. What are these agreements about? Why do governments sign them? Why do some candidates lambast them? Do they deserve the attention they have received?

    There are only 34 official rules of golf, but it takes more than 20,000 words to make them unintelligible enough so that most golfers cannot understand them properly...so this book doesn't even try. Instead, Golf Rules: How to NOT Win a Tournament lays out many of the ways that pro golfers and others have found to be the correct way to receive penalty strokes and/or get disqualified. Included are numerous bone-headed mistakes that golfers you'll recognize have made, plus humorous golf quotes, an index of the actual rules, and more.

    In this audiobook I also go into a lot of things not to do, and discuss the pros and cons of also doing a book in the audio format, for distributors like Audible.com. Overall, I believe that this audiobook covers things that the writing courses don't touch upon, because I never heard about them in the writing classes I attended. This audiobook is the perfect audiobook for any person that wants to write a book, or a gift for someone that wants to.

    Suzi still lives on a luxurious yacht in Marina del Rey, California, with her legal guardian, attorney Peter Sharp, and still has her trusted bodyguard, Bernie, a huge Saint Bernard. But for this adventure, she doesn't want to see the adults take advantage of her superior computer skills and grab all the credit for solving the crimes, like they did in the first 15 books that chronicled Peter Sharp's high-profile criminal cases. The assignment she has given herself for this first solo adventure is to figure out the identity of a murderous serial church bomber.

    This audiobook fully discusses fighting identity theft and the value of placing a Credit Freeze on your credit report so that it cannot be accessed by any unauthorized person trying to get credit on your behalf. The Credit Freeze became California law in 2003, and the other states followed suit shortly thereafter, and in the author's opinion, one of the most important sections of that legislation states that in the case of an address change, the written confirmation shall be sent to both the new address and to the former address.

    The case involved in this Peter Sharp adventure is a dramatic escalation of the jury-tampering attempts made by organized crime back in the roaring 20's when one of their leaders' freedom was in jeopardy, in that it goes a step higher and threatens not a juror, but the judge hearing the case.

    More than half way back from Catalina Island on his boat, a man makes a ship-to-shore S.O.S. radio call to the Marina del Rey Coast Guard, but before he can describe his emergency, a gun is heard being fired on his boat and the transmission ends. When a crew lowered from the Coast Guard helicopter board his boat and find his body, there is no other person on the boat... and no way that any other person could have boarded his boat going 30 miles an hour, and gotten away from the speeding boat.

    The Court appoints attorney Peter Sharp to defend a man accused of capital murder, but there are just a few things that might make this defense a little more difficult than others, because the client's crime was captured on security cameras, he freely confessed to the crime, he wants to plead guilty at his arraignment, and he refuses to talk to Peter Sharp, the attorney whose appointment he agreed to...but aside from those minor problems, it's just another criminal defense case where Sharp must avoid being humiliated in court by his ex-wife....

    There's one attorney that rubs Peter and Suzi the wrong way most: Mister Morris Arthur, the most devious opponent they've ever faced in court, and one that they feel has been complicit in actions from murder to kidnapping - and getting away with it each time. But this time he attempts what attorney Peter Sharp, his young legal ward Suzi, and even Peter's bitter ex-wife Myra feel is the worst offense: getting one of their small group of close associates in trouble with the law.

    There are many types of mysteries, but one stands out over all the others: the ones involving a locked room. Over the years, every mystery writer worth his salt has tried to come up with the one that tops all the rest: the secret compartments, the doors locked from the inside, the confused timeline, etc. Jacques Futrelle set the standard with his Problem in Cell 13 but there hasn't been a really fine stumper since then. Until now.

    Up until this point, the services of this brilliant, computer-savvy crime-solver have been limited to police departments, prosecutors, and well-known criminal defense attorney Peter Sharp. The reason for this is because she's an adorable, small Chinese girl name Suzi, the legal ward of attorney Peter Sharp, who has become tired of doing all the work and seeing her lawyer guardian and his bitter ex-wife Myra (the District Attorney) take all the credit for her efforts.

    All most people talk only about the Fibonacci Sequence, the simplest one to calculate...but people rarely go deeper than that, so Gene Grossman decided to - and has done with this Fibonacci book the same thing he did with the popular books he wrote entitled Celestial Navigation for the Complete Idiot and Trigonometry for the Complete Idiot: He wrote plain-English explanations that even kids above the age of eight should be able to easily follow - and explain to their parents.... And it goes the other way, too.

    There are many types of mysteries, but one specific group stands apart from all the others: those involving a locked room in which a dead body is found...a room that would have been impossible for any person to have entered, committed the murder, and left - because of locked doors, locked windows, or other security devices making the entry and exit impossible.
