The book I read, “Red Flags of Love Fraud” was written by Donna Andersen, published in 2012, and has 235 pages. Donna Andersen is merely a freelance author of two books and a creator of the website “Lovefraud.com.” She was wooed by a sociopath and married him. She catalogued all the information she discovered about sociopaths from her own experiences, and those of other people, and then wrote a guide to tell if you’re dating, married to, or interested in a sociopath. This book is all about the concept of “love fraud” and the people who commit it, named sociopaths. The contents of this book are firsthand stories of people who were with a sociopath. The author was married to one for years and she tells her story as well. This book also gives the “Red Flags” of Love fraud which are Charisma and charm, Sudden soul mates, Sexual magnetism, Love bombing, Blames others for everything, Lies and gaps in the story, Intense eye contact, Moves fast to hook up, Pity play, and Jekyll and Hyde personality. This book also lists the traits of a sociopath being: Lying, Exploitation, Entitlement, Shallow emotions, Dominance, Irresponsibility, Need for Excitement, and Antisocial behavior. This book also lists those who a vulnerable to being preyed upon by a sociopath. Those who are Wounded, Need love, Lonely, Empathetic, Low self-esteem, Want a relationship, Trusting, Need assistance, Single parent, and those who are in Grief are all vulnerable to sociopaths. Being in a relationship with a sociopath is dangerous. They appear sweet and perfect, but in reality, they can give one health issues, financial and property losses, sexual issues, violence, and legal issues. The book also explains the one and only way to end a relationship with a sociopath, and that is no contact whatsoever. I believe the type of audience for this book is anyone who is currently in or seeking a relationship.…...

...Review of: David D. Freidman’s Law’s Order Chapters: 4. What’s Wrong With the World, Part 2 8. Games, Bargains, Bluffs, and Other Really Hard stuff 9. As Much as Your Life is Worth Abstract This book contains a different style of viewing not only the legal system through the eyes of an economist, but as some may take from it, different ways to perceive the interactions that are encountered daily in life. If there were only one human in the world, he/she could do as he/she pleased. As soon as there enter two, the questions of whose interests and exertions of those interests and how they interact with those of the others’ can cause results that were not always in the desired outcome of one or even both people. Therefore, how should these said interactions be handled? When is it necessary to bring laws into the dealings of any situation and to what degree? This book take on these questions and gives examples that can be interpreted in different ways to give a different view on how and why we may or may not need laws; while leaving enough room for the reader to make their own judgments. Chapter 4: What’s Wrong With the World Part 2. Nothing works Costs are produced by one person and borne by another. This simple statement is simply stating that costs’ are not made by only one person in any given situation. As in the example of the polluter and the person being affected by the pollution; there were choices on both parties to bear costs of being......

... The Sociopath Next Door Author: Martha Stout Book Review By: Nicole Hanks April 8, 2013 “1 in 25 ordinary Americans secretly has no conscience and can do anything at all without feeling guilty. Who is the devil you know?” “A chilling accurate portrayal of evil—the decent person’s guide to indecency.” Jonathan Kellerman If a sociopath lives next door, don't go over for coffee. In fact, don't admit to them that you drink coffee, don't talk to them, and for the love of all that's holy, don't ever ask if you can borrow a cup of sugar. Not even if you're baking a cake that is guaranteed to find you true love, a promotion, and give you the winning lotto numbers. Do not make nice with a sociopath. Or so you'll think after reading Martha Stout's book. The Sociopath Next Door is an intriguing look at these devious, tricky people who live a life without a conscience. She describes the sociopath as a person who doesn't have guilt or remorse, or a sense of conscience. Literally they have no conscience. Their minds are such that the sociopath is free to run among us in the world, doing what they like without feeling bad or upset. They don't lie awake at night, wishing they could take back a nasty remark. They don't bite back and keep from saying nasty things to the clerk at Blockbuster when asked to check their backpacks at the store. If they say something awful, they're not going to feel sorry for it. That really seems to be the gist of sociopath, the total lack of remorse or......

...1. Read this (this thing 1 cm. below) P. J. O’Rourke, the political satirist, reviews in this issue a new book about Starbucks. He told us, in an e-mail exchange, how he brews his own reviews: “I read something I’m reviewing the same way I read other things except more so. That is, I already keep a commonplace book (a file folder, really) for quotations, ideas, information, etc. If I’m going to write a review I mark the work for myself, but besides underlining what interests me I also underline what — as far as I can tell — interested the author. By the time I’m done I have an outline for the review. All I have to do is figure out a smart-aleck lead sentence and a wiseacre ending.”[1] 2. Then read the “How to write a Book Review” article on the very next page. Yes, it is a bit long but the information is really quite good. 3. Over the week go to www.salon.com or to http://www.nytimes.com/pages/books read at least five reviews and then divide them into good and bad reviews. Think about the specific qualities that define the better ones. The article from step two of this process will be helpful at this point. At the end of the day a good book review sees an interesting pattern or spins your understanding of the book in a new and delightful way…and importantly is enjoyable to read (as a writer you need to have fun savaging the book, exploring it, dwelling on it, falling in love with it, etc.). Finally remember that your job is to convince a reader of the book’s...

...Business for the Glory of God: The Bible’s Teaching on the Moral Goodness of Business Book Review Nathan Minor Liberty University The book that is under review is “Business for the Glory of God: The Bible’s Teaching on the Moral Goodness of Business” by Wayne Grudem. It is a useful resource for looking at business from different prospects. First off, it addresses a view on relationships between business and religion. Secondly, it shows how different philosophies connect. Lastly, Mr. Grudem does a great job nudging readers to look at a different perspective. First I would like to start this review by mentioning the main ideas and points of this book. The author of “Business for the Glory of God: The Bible’s Teaching on the Moral Goodness of Business” proposes to the readers that business itself glorifies God when it is conducted in a way that imitates God’s character and creation. All elements of how a business operates like profit, money, competition, borrowing, should glorify God because they are reflective of God’s nature. In Business for the Glory of God, Wayne Grudem points out, “When people ask how their lives can ‘glorify God,’ they aren’t usually told, ‘Go into business.’” Yet business is where God calls many, if not most, Christians to serve him. Though they can repeat that familiar line from the Westminster Confession, “the chief end of man is to glorify God, and enjoy Him forever” (Peel 2015). What he is saying is few are encouraged to run their business for...

...* Home * Books * Authors * Ideas * Lists * Bookchooser * Lucky dip! * About us Book review The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer(2004) It's a funny thing. Eoin Colfer writes the kind of book that's so easy to read your eyes just slide along the lines. The story skids along so fast you never quite know when to pause for breath - so you don't. You don't put the book down until you've finished it. And when you've finished it you're pretty sure you've read a funny book, except the story is in fact so sad it stays with you for ages. That's The Supernaturalist. It's set in the future but don't get excited because we humans are way past our zenith. It's downhill all the way from now on. Satellite City: An entire city custom-constructed for the third millennium. Everything the body wanted, and nothing the soul needed. Three hundred square miles of grey steel and automobiles. Read on. You are about to meet some needy souls. There's Cosmo Hill, inmate of the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys, who at fourteen is having to stand down his cherished dream of being adopted. The other option though, of suddenly taking responsibility for his own future, is also abit of a challenge for Cosmo. An overturned bus isn't necessarily everyone's idea of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but this is definitely Cosmo's moment. And he blows it. Well, maybe he never really stood a chance.
