    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.

    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.

    After an interview about Brene Brown's two previous books, a reporter told her he thought he might start working on his own problems about being exposed, genuine, and open with other people. He thought it would take a long time and be hard to do and asked what would make it worth the effort. She told him that exposing yourself, being willing to let people see the real you with no idea what will happen, is the only way that leads to more happiness, love, and acceptance.

    The human race developed from a complex background. Different types of Homo evolved depending on the area that they lived in. 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.

    Escape from Sobibor builds the personality and heart of the story it contains by firstly focusing on the personality and story of Shlomo, a Jewish boy sent to the camp who survives as a goldsmith for the Nazis. It tells of how he and his family were impacted by the Nazis before being taken to the camp, and the trials he had to go through before he even gets there. By focusing on a select few, he shows the personalities that listeners can recognize and reflect on, rather than just telling of acts that were committed onto a faceless group.

    It is clear that many of the things the author talks about in this book are things that most black people would be afraid to talk about in America. However, these are issues that all Americans must have an understanding of. There are many other books that talk about what racial relations in America are like today, but they do not reflect on the long history of racial relations in America. The author brings new insight into the way America was built. It is clear that America has tried to rewrite its history so that people are not aware of all the horrible acts that took place.

    Many parents today are pressured by society. Society has set very high standards, but parents should set their own standards in life. Setting standards will cultivate a sense of freedom. Many parents think the world is a dangerous place, but it is much safer than they might think. A checklist of things for a child to accomplish in life provides too much structure and takes away from the freedom of childhood.

    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.

German forester Peter Wohlleben paints a vivid picture about the fascinating world that lays just outside our doors. As we learn more about trees, it becomes abundantly clear that we have more in common with this fixed, steady plant life than we think.
