As a young Air Force pilot, Richard Bard learned that he had only a few months to live. But he beat the odds. He earned a management degree from the University of Notre Dame and after leaving the Air Force he ran three successful companies involving advanced security products used by US embassies and government facilities worldwide. He was an active member of the California Crime Prevention Officer’s Association and has been published with cover stories in Security magazine and ASIS Security Management magazine. Cancer killed Richard Bard’s career as a USAF pilot. But it didn’t kill him. Thirty-six years later he’s still going strong. Now he writes about second chances in the BRAINRUSH thriller series. When asked what he hopes to achieve as a writer, he said, “The dream for me is to be walking through an airport and notice someone with her head buried in the book. Many readers have said they found it impossible to put down. For me, that's the ultimate compliment.” Bard currently resides with his wonderful wife in Redondo Beach, California, where he remains in excellent health. Book Two of the series is scheduled for release in December, 2011

I've read the other reviews just GUSHING praise for this book/author and all I can think is y'all need to get out more. There is no way this is in league with truly great authors (Steveson, Card, Lawhead or even contemporary good writers like Grisham).
The character devolpment was weak... of course all his friends would be spec ops. Of course the dizzy blonde waitress would be a Kung fu master. Of course he would be invincible. Of course the bad guy is a maniacal Muslim terrorist. I mean it was just weak characters, little devolpment and wholly predictable.
Story line was somewhat compelling but disjointed. I see how we got from point A to F but there were some serious leaps made that required the reader to suspend disbelief.
I'd like to see where the story heads but not for 3.99 a pop. This is standard Kindle Unlimited fare IMHO.
I loved the theme of people who have amazing powers and gifts following a traumatic incident serving as the scientific basis for unleashing that potential in the entire human race. But the research is being approached from another angle as well. There are those who would attempt to upgrade human performance just as readily with a mind chip. Within the context of this story those would be the bad guys. One wonders as we step into the near future which scientific approach will win out or if it will possibly be a blended approach. But to keep things from getting academic is this wonderful story with good guys and bad guys going at one another with not just their fates at risk, but the fate of the future and of the world.
I loved how the author gets the reader to think about things that never make it into the news but that will describe the years and decades ahead much more vividly than anything which does. These are debates we should be having with ourselves and with one another in the public forum. But until we do, there are artists and keep thinkers like this author who has steeped in the issues, the tech, and the scientific literature enough to give us a leg up. What future will we inherit, and will it be worth the price?
You’ll have to read on to find out.
I have a new author to add to my favorites list and this one makes the top 5 of my Q1 2017 reads. I’m eagerly looking forward to the rest of the series.
