    The Bourne Legacy Book Review

    The Bourne Legacy published in 2004 is a spy fiction thriller written by Eric Van Lustbader. It is the fourth novel in the Jason Bourne series created by Robert Ludlum and the first to be written by Lustbader.  There was a movie released in August of 2012 that is nothing even remotely like this great novel. The movie focuses on film stars Jeremy Renner who plays Aaron Cross.  A member of a black ops program whose agents are physically and cognitively enhanced, goes on the run once Bourne’s actions lead to the public exposure of Operations Treadstone and Blackbriar.  None of this has ever been mentioned in the book. The novel focuses on Jason Bourne now a professor at college.  He is settled down with his wife Marie and two children under his real name David Web.  A threat is made against his live and now the Jason Bourne persona must come back and protect his life, family and friends.  Bourne is much older in this book and focus more on his thoughts from vietnam and his struggles to reclaim is fragmented thoughts.  Which come back to haunt, help and move him into the right direction just like the previous three books. Over the course of the book we learn a great deal more about Bournes past as he uncovers an elaborate plot to try and kill some very important public figures.  While fighting of a ruthless assassin who is a very important persons from his past. This book is another GREAT novel with this great captivating character.  I think this book focuses more on Bourne’s personal past and current situation then it does his time as an operative.  Even though there are parts of it mentioned in the book it’s not the main focus. Overall this was a great book...

    Rigged Money Book Review

    http://www.amazon.com/Rigged-Money-Beating-Wall-Street/dp/1118099680 Rigged Money is a great book Lee Munson highlights a lot of key points that are different then the usual Wall Street mentality.  One reason I like this book is because Munson actually works with clients and investing he is not just another author writing a book. Some key points in this book I loved were 1.  The Buy and Hold is a scam 2.  Most ETF’s are scams 3. The Lie of the Pie 4. Wall Streets invents the demand 5. Throwing mud on the theory of a random walk and efficient markets 6. The classic financial adviser sales pitch Overall I though this was a great book and a great read and thank you Lee Munson for leaving no Wall Street stone unturned.

    Ghost In The Wires Book Review

    I myself always enjoyed reading mostly my genres consist of technology books, autobiographies and biographies.  I have read may different books as of late which I will eventually blog about but today I would like to highlight Kevin Mitnick – Ghost In The Wires.  This book gave a very detailed look at Kevin Mitnick’s life and cleared up a lot of rumors about this past.  Steve Wozniak even does blurbs in the book giving it even more authenticity.  The book speaks about the Free Kevin movement.  Touches on the movie that was right to DVD Track Down.  The book does go into some techie information for more of the technical person and geek at heart but also does a good job of simplifying information for the average reader.  I think this was a great book and I had a hard time putting it down.  I will also be reading Kevin Mitnick –Art of Deception and Art of Institution soon.  I give this book 5 Stars.
