Dennis Palumbo has been a guest on our show with his much-admired Daniel Rinaldi Mysteries and his acclaimed non-fiction book, Writing from the Inside Out.

Dr. Leonard Mlodinow - Elastic (Part 1) (#1818) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Can we train our brains to be more comfortable when confronting change and more adapt at innovation? Dr. Leonard Mlodinow knows we can. Dr. Mlodinow, who co-wrote with Stephen Hawking The Grand Design and A Briefer History of time, is known for his ability to take almost incomprehensible subjects and make them accessible to all. With his book, Elastic, he tells why we must use a new form of thinking in an era of ever fasting change.

The world we live in has changed and nobody knows this better than Gary Grossman, the EMMY award winning producer, acclaimed journalist and one of the great thriller writers of our time. Gary's latest novel Red Hotel, co-written by its inspirational hero Ed Fuller, will prove without a doubt that fiction is too often more truthful than the reality reported.
