"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."

From Lightning Strikes To Love At First Sight The Odds of Everyday Life


Amran Shapiro

Louise Firth Campbell

Rosalind Wright


amran shapiro 

It's one thing to think about the odds of winning a jackpot when you're in Las Vegas...but what about the odds of winning in the game of Life? For instance, the odds a woman will be married by the age of 30 are 1 in 1.4 which, by the way, are the same odds an NBA team will score at least 90 points in a game. Kari talks with Amran Shapiro, Founder of The Book of Odds, about this fascinating compendium of thoroughly researched statistics on thousands of questions about love, sex, health, accidental death, beliefs, fears and so much more. The odds you'll enjoy this richly illustrated reference book and get a snapshot of modern American society? 100 to 1!

A Novel


Kim Fu

This is a coming of age story about an outwardly typical Chinese-immigrant family living in a small Canadian town. But the Huangs, overseen by a tyrannical patriarch, have secrets. Everyone must meet expectations or be cut-off. The precious boy-child, Peter Huang, is struggling to conform but his dearest dream is to be a girl, just like his 3 sisters. Despite his Chinese birth name Juan Chaun (Powerful King), Peter feels powerless to express his true nature. It takes years of denial and discovery before Peter finally transitions into the woman he knows he is...and his sisters are waiting.

A True Story

About Life


Erika Hayasaki

erika hayasaki


What does it take to plan for a good death? Will we face the end of our lives with the inner knowing that we did our best? Or will we dread the end, filled with regrets? Former nurse and Kean University Health Education Professor Norma Bowe decided her students needed to look at death in a new light, so she started the "Death In Perspective" Class. It's so popular, it has a 3 year waiting list! Award-winning Journalist-turned-college professor and Author Erika Hayasaki had seen too much death during her career, and decided to take "The Death Class". She followed up with 3 of Professor Bowe's students over a 3 year period. This book relates their stories and how they dealt with death to embrace a meaningful new outlook on life.
