Mr. Gladwell’s latest insightful bestseller lays out in 3 parts (Advantages of Disadvantages, The Theory of Desirable Difficulty and The Limits of Power) how we too can slay giants in our lives like David did Goliath....Power To The Underdogs! Mr. Gladwell uses several real life stories he’s discovered to make it very clear that one should never feel powerless, and that in many circumstances weakness can be a surprising and effective strength.

Mr. Hiaasen is in tip-top form with his latest hilarious misadventure set once again in beautiful Key West. Ex-detective Yancy (lost his badge for “vacuum hosing” his lover’s husband in public), now a restaurant inspector, tries to solve a murder that starts off with an arm found on the end of a fishing line. He hopes to get his badge back if he solves it, but what he goes through is intensely funny and creepy at the same time...magical!!!
