Live Wire: 10 (Myron Bolitar)
About this deal
Ripa runs through wordy explanations of her marriage, childbirth, and her surprisingly successful career. There is never enough depth to satisfy. She also talks about sex quite a bit (odd for someone married for so long, is there something she's hiding?) and isn't afraid to use more R-rated language than she does on TV.
Live Wire by Harlan Coben: 9780451239884 | PenguinRandomHouse
New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben proves once again that "nobody writes them better"* in a thriller that asks a provocative question: Kelly's disparaging "Regis comments" show that Kelly never learned that it's poor taste to discredit a mentor, especially when this mentor is dead and can't defend himself/herself. It's as if she wants to burn bridges (even saying how much she hates going in to do the talk show every day) but she doesn't have the guts to fully start the flames. Her personal wall is way up when it comes to telling deep truths about her marriage, kids, workplace, unusual friendships with a number of famous gays, and what her future holds.

Edit: I have had a lot of people commenting on this review so please let me clarify what I mean. I found factual inaccuracies in the book that I know to be inaccurate because there were about my own field of expertise. The inaccuracies were referenced but did not match what the reference material stated and I had to go to the reference source to clarify what was actually factually correct. I can not recommend a book that fails to reference correctly. Kitty Hammer Bolitar: Myron's sister-in-law who was a tennis rival of Suzze T's when both were in their teens. Also missing from this book was Kelly's "short story" about the unprofessional and self-centered stunt that she pulled in 2016 when she "went missing" from Live after her former co-host Michael Strahan announced he was moving to Good Morning America.Livewired" is the catchy term David Eagleman has coined to describe the miraculous ability of the brain to adapt in concert with its environment and make sense of the world. With fluid prose and crystal-clear analogies, Eagleman explains the function of the cerebral cortex as a general computing machine that can take any kind of input from environmental sensors — e.g. the light sensors in your eye, the air-pressure sensors in your ear, or vibrations from a wrist band — and turn it into meaning. Let's say there's a kid who has the worst case of epilepsy ever. Like, seizures every 20 minutes. Doctor says the only treatment is a hemispherectomy, which is exactly what it sounds like — removal of half the kid's brain. What do you think happens after the operation? How will the kid do?
Live Wire by Kelly Ripa – HarperCollins
Tази книга е изключително информативно и вълнуващо пътешествие в може би най-непознатата и необяснима територия - човешкия мозък. From the best-selling author of Incognito and Sum comes a revelatory portrait of the human brain based on the most recent scientific discoveries about how it unceasingly adapts, re-creates, and formulates new ways of understanding the world we live in. Ripa claims to have written all of this herself (doubtful, she probably had a really good editor that wasn't willing to cut out all the dull stuff because there would be such a short manuscript left). And Kelly insists it's a "book of essays" instead of a "memoir," but really it's mostly inconsequential verbosity that I highly suspect is meant to cover up for the real secrets that she keeps carefully hidden within. Or as the Jersey girl might want to call it--it's verbal vomit.
Live Wire (DC Comics) or Garth Ranzz, more commonly known as Lightning Lad, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes I also would have liked to read some "short stories" about Kelly's behind-the-scenes moments at "All My Children" and "Live".
