When the the surgeon walked into the room, she was surprised to see someone she knew from her past. It was Dr. Chris Carr. She babysat for him a decade ago taking care of his son Dillion.

Chris by Tarin Lex is the second book in the multi-author Holidays with the Hometown Character series. This is the story of Claire Hart and Dr. Christopher aire is twenty-six years old and is trying to live her life the best she can, if only life would give her a couple breaks this year. After losing a boyfriend and then the promotion she had been working hard for she wanted to obtain a small joy in her life. So she had headed down to the basement to obtain her Christmas tree and set it up. This is even more scandalous as it is before Thanksgiving but she is not caring. Well it seems that someone was caring as she ended up having to take an ambulance ride to the hospital after hitting her face on duct work and then falling over. But maybe there is someone looking over her in the end when she gets to meet her ris is thirty-eight and moved back to the little city of Starlight, Montana latest year to work at the Starlight General Hospital. Chris had been gone for the latest eight years as a field surgeon for the Army. When he is called to the ER to see a patient who needs surgery he is surprised to see that it is Claire. He remembers her from when she was sixteen as she had been the babysitter of his ten year old son, Dillon. But now Claire is all grown up and even though she is attractive she is still not looking aire had had a major crush on Chris when she was babysitting Dillon, or as Claire had nicknamed him "The devil's spawn". Chris takes really amazing care of Claire and she in turn has some fun on the pain meds while she stays in the hospital for a couple of days. Even though they are both very much attracted to each Chris will not pursue her as she is still his patient. But several weeks later and it is Christmas Eve. The celebration is at Claire's parents house and Chris had been invited. When she goes to the basement to look for the space-heater for her father Chris follows her to help. But he actually has one question for her....Have you been a amazing girl this year and if so then what do you wish from Santa? Now that is a question that should not be asked unless you are willing to deliver and boy does he ever deliver with a toe curling, soul searing is is a nicely written book which is fast-paced and entertaining. The story-line had some drama, family, friends, romance and sizzling chemistry. The characters are sweet and very likeable but with a amazing amount of humor and wittiness. I really liked this story.
Chris is the second book Holidays with the Hometown Character series. Claire has not had a amazing month, so she is hoping a small Christmas cheer could turn things around, only to end up in the hospital. Chris has return to city after 10 years, working in a little city the latest person she expected to see was his son's old aire and Chris's holiday tale is one that will have you smiling as old memories come up, things are said when on pain medication and the knowing smile of the parents.

Claire seems to be having a poor year, her boyfriends gone, her promotion went down the drain and now she is in an ambulance because she decided to place a tree up and was distracted.Enter Chris, he is a surgeon called in to work on a patient and is surprised that it is Claire. She was the cute teenager who babysat for his son. Claire is all grown up and on pain meds Yeah she is hilarious. But even though Chris is attracted to her he steps aside due to his position at the hospital. It isn't until weeks latter that the fun really begins...

This is a really enjoyable book to read and then to peruse occasionally. I had been looking for a book which covers the history of the bicycle when I ran across this in the library by accident. I've always thought Boardman was interesting and particularly like his ITV commentating, so I checked it out immediately. I later bought the book for my own graphy of the Bike covers the entire history of cycling, from the 1800s to the show and gives amazing explanations about the technology and what led to different advances. There are a tremendous number of photos, and the book has an emphasis on street racing as opposed to commuting or touring; however, there are quite a few sections on those subjects as well. It is a very dense book, packed with images and text, maybe a small too packed. I have a tough time reading it without reading glasses, due to the small, grey, sanserif font.
Amazing book, written by a former pro rider who I keep in the highest regard. The book comprises a wide-ranging history of bicycles and bicycle equipment. Although it is interesting and full of some small known facts, it is written for a wide audience. Because of this, there is a lot of info that an experienced cycling enthusiast might already be aware of. Nevertheless, it is worth reading for the less well-known bits of the history of bicycle evolution, as well as the amazing illustrations. The only quibble wasn’t with the book. Delivery time seemed exceedingly slow— two weeks or so from clicking to receiving. To be fair, I think we tend to obtain a small spoiled sometimes, expecting things to present up on our doorstep almost immediately. But still.
In addition to being a legendary cyclist, it turns out that Chris Boardman is also a unbelievable writer. This fascinating and enjoyable book is a goldmine of info about the development of every aspect of the bicycle. This book would be my top pick for anyone wanting to learn about how the bike was born, and how it evolved into the modern ride of today.
I like how it's written and how you can see how to utilize this book in true scenarios. As a true estate investor, my main skill required is negotiation. This book teaches you ways to say the things you say now in different, more productive ways.
Perfect book and its support you so much to thinking quick and slow. The content of this book was extremely amazing and helpful for the beginners. I am totally impressed after read this summary book and I will highly recommend it
I'm not client-facing in my company but I can see how useful the summary is for people in sales or similar fields that don't wish to read the full book. I've read the full book and the summary did a amazing job at capturing the best lessons and providing a amazing reference for me to quickly turn back to. My largest takeaway is the mirroring tactic and calibrated questions. I've used them when my boss asks for off-topic tasks (like in the book!) and it works great!
I tried some of the techniques out in true life situations as I was reading the book, and they worked. I can't say how much of this is backed by actual science, but it did work for me.
This is really a book on treating people with respect and empowering them to create mistakes and to resolve those mistakes. No one is excellent nor should our expectations of them be perfect. Trust is like respect; one must command it though their actions and examples, which leads to credibility by employees, peers and community. Amazing read. ~mdbii
Very interesting to say the least.Have never understood why the guy doesn't just obtain a divorce. Cuz not only did his family go a2ay so did his mistress. They don't think straight when they are cheating
I'm in nursing school now and one of the things most senior nurses complain about is working with hard headed doctors. The summary was amazing in showing me easy tools, both confrontational and non-confrontational, when dealing with hard-headed people.

Yes I would love it if I ever obtain it. I have been waiting for over a month now and it still hasn't arrived. I ordered it because I love the Andrew Lloyd Webber songs and I love how Michael Crawford performs them. I think it is wonderful how he could play such an idiot in Mothers do have them with such an poor voice then be able to sing so well. I have heard the complete C D and thought it one of the best C D's I have ever listened to.
Never Split the Difference is a amazing book, but it's not very linear. If you listen to it as an audiobook, as I did, and can't take notes, this summary provides amazing notes. I wouldn't recommend skipping the book for this, but it's a very useful reference tool by itself or for quickly finding references in the book.
I've never purchased a summary tutorial before and can't imagine purchasing again. There are grammatical and other glaring errors that obliterate any credibility that the author (is he an author if he's just summarizing?) might have had, and are so frustrating that I just stopped reading. I may have only paid .99 but it was totally wasted.
I have to admit that I am a not good negotiator. But, in order to obtain what you wish in life, you have to war for what you wish while avoiding confrontations. This summary has greatly and directly changed my perspective of is summary was concise and to the point. His viewpoints were clearly stated and his tip to be a better negotiator were simple to understand. There were some grammatical errors but it they were simple to understand and it didn't result the quality of the book. I now understand how to be a better negotiator without being too stern or dramatic.I would highly recommend this book to everyone because everyone needs to learn the best method to negotiate to succeed in life.
An interesting and useful read excellent for this bleak moment and the current economical 's full of meal for thought and interesting ysis that can surely be useful at any level to understand what's going and how the economical globe can 's highly y thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
The melody of Andrew Lloyd Webber always suited Michael Crawford's voice especially well. His solo Lloyd Webber album, recorded five years after his initial, London triumph as the Phantom of the Opera, begins with a delightful rendition of the oft-recorded "Any Dream Will Do" (from JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT) and includes not a single weak track. Standouts contain a heartrending ver of "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again," a uniquely tender "All I Ask of You" (with the Metropolitan Opera soprano Barbara Bonney, who of course is stunning in the coloratura of the title song from PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, another high point), and a truly amazing "Music of the Night." He gets into the spirit of the satirical "And the Cash Kept Rolling In" (EVITA), charms in the medley from ASPECTS OF LOVE, and gives one of the best-ever renditions of "Gethsemene" from JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. In short, this CD is Crawford in his vocal prime and at his very best: no fan of his or Lloyd Webber's should be without it.
Michael Crawford has long been associated with musical theatre, and with Andrew Lloyd Webber in particular since starring as the first and most popular 'Phantom' of Webber's ver of 'Phantom of the Opera' in the 1980s. Crawford's voice seemed tailor-made for Webber's melody there, and Crawford decided to expand upon this by recording this disc after a successful run as the 'Phantom' in Britain, North America and is disc was produced in 1991 when both Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Crawford were at a fresh height of popularity. The musicals represented here are a litany of the blockbuster musicals of West End and Broadway legend - 'Aspects of Love', 'Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat', 'Tell Me on a Sunday', 'Cats', 'Evita', 'Starlight Express', 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and 'Phantom of the Opera'.Many of the key songs of Webber are here - some of the songs are familiar without the musicals also being familiar, and sometimes it is the other method around. Perhaps Crawford's greatest performances on this disc are not the songs he performed on scene as the Phantom ('Music of the Night' is one that he performed on scene in addition to the title song 'Phantom of the Opera'), but more gentle songs such as 'Nothing Like You've Ever Known' from 'Tell Me on a Sunday' are perhaps even better cast for his all, this is a unbelievable concert of Crawford and Webber, in a grand pairing. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra provides the backing for the Crawford, who is accompanied by Barbara Bonney in the songs from 'Phantom', Frances Ruffelle on 'Only You', and his daughter Lucy Crawford on 'Other Pleasures/The First Man You Remember'.This is a nice album, a romantic collection, and one that will please any lover of Broadway/West End shows.
I purchased this CD as a replacement for one I had years ago (circa 1995). Michael Crawford's voice is clear and emotional, more so than a lot of others that have attempted to perform Andrew Lloyd Webber's music. Hearing the male voice sing some of the songs seems like it could be a stretch, but he pulls it off very 's a unbelievable CD for anyone that appreciates Michael Crawford's voice or Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
This is a amazing book on how to use emotions to solve conflict. It is a very practical tutorial for your daily negotiations that you have with your family, mates and colleagues at work. It gives you a completely various approach which is also effective which is explained in the book...Getting to Yes....which uses logic and reason when you negotiate with family, mates and colleagues. A must read....
This condenses the book down into a method that is simple to go to for a fast reminder from the book. Simple to search a specific bit of information and not have to go back thru the book for that 1 or 2 sentences of that subject and you back to what you were doing.
It is well written summary book and simple to understand. All info is very detailed, simple to read, and helpful. I liked this book and I am glad to have it on my Kindle. I recommend this tutorial to anyone who needs such type of information.
This book as taught me that a majority of people are programmed to say no. It’s not always about price. My largest take away form this book is to embrace “no” and build it into to my negotiations with customers in a better effort to truly understand what the true problems are.
Never split the difference was a android game changer for me. The summary created it simple for me to remember some keys point about the book that I use on a everyday basis. This summary is a must read for anyone in sales. Highly recommend!
I've read a few negotiation books and learned about Chris Voss from an interview. Amazing summary. Didn't wish to read the full book so took the risk on this summary. 100% worth it...will be referencing this one from time to time.

Emotions often express themselves as behaviors. Presenting behaviors are visible on the surface for all to see, while underlying behaviors are motivated by feelings that lay hidden below the surface.Highly recommended read!!
