Fast-forward nearly 20 years, and Barbara Kogan, George's estranged wife, admitted to hiring a hit man to have her husband gunned down. Her ninth book - Murder in Beverly Hills (the re-release and update of Murder of a Mafia Daughter) - was published in November 2013 about the unsolved murder of writer Susan Berman.

Her latest project is the Dawn Viens case. Dawn, 37, disappeared on Oct. 18, 2010, after leaving Thyme Contemporary Cafe, in Lomita, California, that she and her husband ran. David Viens told police that he and his wife had argued. She didn't take her cell phone or stash of cash, and her car was later towed as evidence when she did not return.

Soul Biographies is about being truly seen. For when we are, the world changes.
Nic Askew's films are of the courageous, and for the courageous. It's an act of bravery, and of immense trust to sit in front of such a revealing camera not knowing what might come. For the courageous - it's a similar act of bravery to pay attention to another who is most likely to challenge your world.
Nic's black and whiteHuman Portraits examine the depth of qualities such as happiness, purpose, loss, loneliness, courage, and gratitiude. And the more worldly subjects such as transformation in leadership, education, healthcare, business and poverty.
New human portraits are emailed out to a large, loyal, curious and influential tribe each Monday since 2005.

Celeste Yacoboni joins Rainbow Vision at 6pm PT, 7pm MT, 8pm CT, 9pm MT to discuss her new book, How Do You Pray? She was guided to ask the world, "How do you pray?" She reached out to family and friends, then to leading figures from all walks of life and schools of thought like Arvol Looking Horse, Lama Surya Das, Dr. Patch Adams, Dan Millman, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Margaret Starbird and many others. Culled from those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of prayers, essays, and offerings that encourage readers to contemplate the intention of prayer in their own life.
Composed essentially of prayers and short biographies of its 129 contributors (leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions ranging fro Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim any particular walk of faith). How Do You Pray is an interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity.
In our stressful world,prayers teach us faith, forgivenss, compassion and patience. Prayers can also produce miracles.
