Although Jessie J has some stand-out tracks on her latest record, “Sweet Talker,” they are drowned out by unmemorable tunes that scream familiarity. The British musician begins her album with “Ain’t Been Done.” The song illustrates her rapping abilities and then seamlessly transitions into poppy vocals. This song exhibits J’s range of musical styles and has an...

Let me start this review by telling you that I have never watched a single episode of Dr. Phil’s show or even heard much about him, except in parodies where they made fun of him or he made fun of himself.   This book gave me the first impression from anything Dr. Phil related.  What was the first impression? It was really good.  Maybe I am just very naïve or desperate...
