I absolutely love this book! I found it after seeing advertisements for the tv show, I found the book so much more thrilling! Shadow is such an unique chars and the way he deals with certain situations had me feeling all the emotions I could! I highly recommend this as it grips you right from the get go. You get the unique little breaks, short stories called “coming to America” which gives the book more depth. Love love love it.

Bryan Cranston landed his first role at seven, when his father, a struggling actor and director, cast him in a commercial. Soon Bryan was haunting the local movie theater, reenacting scenes with his older brother. Acting was clearly his destiny - until one day his father disappeared. As a young man on a classic cross-country motorcycle trip, he found himself stranded at a rest area in the Blue Ridge Mountains. To pass the time, he read a tattered copy of Hedda Gabler, and in a flash he found himself face-to-face with his original calling.

What an amazing book, inspiring and filled with hope. I found myself in grossed in this book every chance I could get, on the long journey to work and whenever else I had time.
In an odd way, maybe this was part of the plan, but I felt attached and listening to the words and encouragement I needed to help me with my own passion for my career. Brian Cranston is more than Breaking Bad and his fight and the struggles he faced professionally and personally made watching his work all the more inspiring and intriguing.

In essence, this is book I will always come back to and an excellent read or listen!

Wow. What a fabulous book, I was so addicted and couldn't wait to listen again! Kept me enthralled, guessing who it could be, and fascinated by the realness of Rachel I felt her despair and her pain. Worth the listen! Can't praise it enough

Batman is one of the most compelling and enduring characters to come from the Golden Age of Comics, and interest in his story has only increased through countless incarnations since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Why does this superhero without superpowers fascinate us? What does that fascination say about us? Batman and Psychology explores these and other intriguing questions about the masked vigilante, including: Does Batman have PTSD? Why does he fight crime? Why as a vigilante? Why the mask, the bat, and the underage partner?
