Outliers: The Story of Success

Malcolm Gladwell

Price: $3.99

In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell seeks to disabuse us of the notion that genius and greatness are predominantly a function of innate ability and IQ. He rightly notes that while IQ is certainly a contributor, it reaches a “point of diminishing returns” after a while: once people score about 130, IQ becomes less important and “intangibles” (my term) become more important.

Kevin Currie-Knight

There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential.

In The Tipping Point Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In Blink he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.

Getting Past What You’ll Never Get Over: Help for Dealing with Life’s Hurts

John F. Westfall

Price: $1.99

Too often the Christian lives in an insular community where, in addition to maintaining a pious impression and reputation, the pressure to “just get over it” or “be a good witness” is dominant. This is book an antidote to such societies of denial.
Can’t go over it. Can’t go under it. Can’t go around it. Gotta go through it.
Might as well get started.

Baron

When hard times strike, we look forward with longing to the day when we will “get over” the event and have closure. This is a difficult–often impossible–road to travel. There are some things in life that we must learn to live with because they will never truly go away for good. Despite that truth, there is life–rewarding and abundant life–after heartache and pain.

John F. Westfall leads readers beyond their hurts and into a life of confidence, freedom, and secure joy. Sharing stories with wisdom, humor, and vulnerability, he shows how to move forward beyond fear, regret, guilt, anger, and bitterness into a life worth living.

Deadly Devotion was a really good mystery novel. I had thought for a long time I knew who was behind it all, but my first guess was totally off!

The Unrelenting Tide (Islands of Intrigue: San Juans – Christian Romantic Suspense)

Lynnette Bonner

Price: $2.99

If you’re in the mood for a little romance, funny things kids say and do, mystery, and adrenalin rushes, this is the story for you. Lynnette Bonner provides for all these needs in her latest release, The Unrelenting Tide. I loved the main characters, Carcen, Devynne, and Marissa. The story kept my attention without any problem. It was fast paced and kept me trying to figure out who the bad guy was, or if there might even be a couple working together. Just when I thought I knew who it was someone else did something to cast suspicion on themselves. In the end, I was not disappointed. There was plenty of humor in the story too. Little Marissa was quite the character. But I loved Carcen and Devynne’s sense of humor too. Lots of laughs.

June

She’s been living a lie that could just get her killed…

Widowed former Hollywood actress Devynne Lang has been living a quiet life in the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest. For years, she’s hoped her fabricated death would keep her identity safe from the public, and more to the point, from the stalker who forced her into hiding. But strange things have been happening around her place and this time, with a daughter to protect, she can’t afford one mistake – even if it means letting Carcen Lang get close enough to help.

Carcen would do anything to protect his brother’s widow and her daughter. So when he discovers Devynne may be in danger, he vows to find the man responsible. But dead lead after dead lead frustrates and baffles. Until the unthinkable happens and he realizes the danger has been closer than either of them could have imagined.

…because lies always have a way of coming back to bite you.

The San Juan Islands: Mysterious Harbors, Dangerous Shores, and Tides of Love.
