Født Klog. En bog, som gør os alle klogere på børn Alle børn er født kloge. Vi gør som forældre alt, hvad der står i vores magt, for at tilfredsstille det lille væsens behov, og alligevel glemmer mange at lytte til og tale med barnet. Børn forstår, hvad vi siger og mærker, hvordan vi har det – helt fra fødslen. Det er derfor vigtigt at lytte til barnets udtryk, tale med barnet og bruge hele vores sanseapparat for at forstå barnets ønsker og behov. Hvis børn og forældre forstår hinanden bedre, vil de sammen kunne skabe noget helt enestående – et herligt liv for både barnet og forældrene, mener forfatteren til Født klog, sundhedsplejerske Lena Dyhrberg. I den ånd er bogen Født klog blevet til – i ønsket om at give forældre en god forståelse af deres unikke barn. Som sundhedsplejerske gennem mange år er Lena Dyhrberg blevet bekræftet i det spæde barns klogskab: Det nyfødte barn forstår, hvad du siger. Hvis du taler til barnet, så bringer du bare en meddelelse. Hvis du taler med barnet, så kigger du på dit barn, får kontakt og vil kunne se, du får et svar. Svaret kan være, at barnet ændrer mimik. Måske pludrer barnet eller er helt stille.
Det kan også være, at dit barn spræller med hele kroppen og viser dig, at nu skal I have det sjovt. Derfor ændrer barnet kropssprog. Dette og meget andet handler Født klog om – i håbet om, at forældrerollen kan blive lettere at håndtere, når den voksne lytter og taler med barnet.
Evolve opens with the FDA rejecting a genetic therapy that cures breast cancer and unfolds into a political, philosophical, and scientific drama that will have readers asking questions about a fictional world that are more appropriately asked of the real one. The FDA rejects a new breast cancer therapy and scheming politicians stoke public outrage against the drug’s creators, claiming the drug would only be available to the wealthy and would be used as a weapon of genetic warfare against minorities and the poor. The scientists who created the drug are baffled and deeply depressed by the furor over their life-saving creation and are eventually driven to leave their entire lives’ work, going into hiding from a world hostile to everything in which they believe. Politicians manipulate each other and the public for power, the company which created the drug struggles to maintain its independence from an impending government take-over, and investors and rival companies must choose sides in a political war. Billion dollar budgets, entire industries, individuals who might be saved by drugs that will never exist, and the Presidency are the casualties of the deception, manipulation, power struggles, and fighting of Evolve. In Evolve, actions are shown to have their logical if unintended consequences; people are driven by unrecognized but ever-present incentives; and the way the world works is made apparent in the order that ultimately emerges. Evolve presents the reader with a grandiose vision of the world. Politicians meddle with the economy; regulation is used to protect people from themselves and destroy enemies; scientists scheme to better their own careers while feigning to seek the truth in nature; and business leaders are shown to be geniuses, corrupt, humanitarians, and sleazy opportunists. Readers will come to see slivers of each of the novel’s characters in the people in their own lives. Human evolution, achievement, and the value of freedom are the novel’s core themes. Evolve is Jurassic Park meets Atlas Shrugged with a timely and time narrative.

Issabella Bright has had it with bailing her handsome-but-unpredictable boyfriend-slash-partner out of the drunk tank, with him messing up their court schedule and with his buttinsky female best friend. But Darren's latest story is no flustered excuse—the glad-handing stranger who blew into his office is none other than Mister Unreliable himself: Issabella's long-absent father.
And the only thing he's brought with him is trouble. No sooner does Howard Bright appear than a psychopath begins waging a campaign of terror aimed directly at Darren—and Issabella.
Stalking the stalker to discover his motive—never mind his identity—could very well mean lights out for Bright & Fletcher. But Darren will put his safety, reputation and personal fortune on the line if it means protecting Issabella.
