    In the first chapter, Jeff Olson introduces his readers to the idea that every single person on this planet has the potential to turn either into a poor, unsuccessful beach bum or into a successful entrepreneur with a huge balance in his bank account. He tells his own story - about how he went from failure to success to another failure, how he slowly learned that failure and success both happen for the same reason, and that this one single reason can work either for or against you, depending on how you use it.

    Over nine chapters, Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread, such as aviation and construction, which have made checklists mandatory. As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery, the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries.

    Alexander explains that voting is the most basic democratic freedom and right, yet black people throughout US history have been unable to hold or else exercise that right. Furthermore, racial discrimination continues today in a legalized form because once-convicted felons are legally required to explain their background and may be legally refused service or opportunities because of it.

    Acemoglu's theory and explanation of the differences in global prosperity are as enlightening as they are entertaining. He manages to make the puzzling concept dead simple to understand because the book, rather than a lengthy lecture explaining the theory, is a series of examples supporting it. After the first chapter, you will fundamentally understand the concept and theory behind this book, and each subsequent chapter will support the theory in fascinating ways.

    Bessel Van der Kolk, MD, is the author of The Body Keeps the Score. In this book, Bessel examines the ways that trauma can affect people and how they can recover from past traumatic events. When a person experiences trauma, it will change the wiring in their brain, and this will cause a change in the way that person views their life and everyday situations. Trauma has a negative effect on both the body and mind in a way that will prevent a person affected by trauma from enjoying the present moment.

Neanderthals developed in the hotter climates of earth and are adapted best for this climate, and other Homos are best suited for the places they are found the most. After millions of years, Homo sapiens started to expand over the globe, mating and killing the local Homo species until it was Homo sapiens that dominated the earth.

Many people reported physically glowing as well, their friends and family noticing the differences almost as immediately as they themselves did.

    Nadia is a woman who grew up with a very strict view of how to imagine Christ, God, and the Bible. Because of that, she felt she just couldn't live up to what she was taught, so she withdrew and became a different person. She went through trials and tribulations, maybe more than some of us do. She was a drug user and abused alcohol. She was angry, depressed, and scared. But, somehow, she came through the other side. Despite still being a swearing, sarcastic, tattooed, and sometimes angry woman, she found her way back to God and became a Lutheran pastor for All Saints and Sinners Church in Colorado.
