    What really distinguishes the people who literally change the world - those creative geniuses who give us one breakthrough after another? What differentiates Marie Curie or Elon Musk from the merely creative, the many one-hit wonders among us? Melissa Schilling, one of the world's leading experts on innovation, invites us into the lives of eight people - Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Elon Musk, Dean Kamen, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, and Steve Jobs - to identify the traits and experiences that drove them to make spectacular breakthroughs, over and over again.

    When Skitters the cat finds himself upgraded from life in a parking garage to a mansion in Utah, all seems to be well. Then Skitters takes up with Harriet, a fiery feline who belongs to a little girl living in a polygamist cult. Skitters isn't the only one who tangos with the native polygamists. Brandon Spinkle, the son of a rock star named Scottie Sphincter, can't resist the temptation to kick the hornet's nest at Zion Flats, a dumpy town where multiplicity is the name of the game.

    We have found that some of the costly digital and paper memory jogs widely used to solve the problem of forgetting could instead be replaced with a stuffed alien toy. Perhaps some explanation is in order. Bothered by our own memory failings, we wondered if connecting an intention that could easily be forgotten (such as returning a library book) with an eye-grabbing cue—such as that stuffed alien—that would be visible at the appropriate time might improve follow-through.

    This audiobook seeks to provide you with the deficiencies that can occur between a neurotypical child and a parent who has Asperger syndrome or who falls on the autism spectrum. We hope to educate adult children who grew up with an aspie as to why they might be experiencing Complex-PTSD, who may have felt alienated as children, and who are largely confused in their world. This audiobook also seeks to educate those who may mentor or work with an NT child who was born into an aspie family or who has constant exposure to aspies.
