    Story

    There are very few books that seem to take advantage of audiobook technology as this one has. It is a lecture explaining the origin of music, as well as the developments and changes of schools of thought behind each form of music and how to develop an ear for it, with snippets of the music discussed broken down in each lecture to clarify the lecturer's point, followed by the full piece discussed at the end.

    I feel like I can understand music, even modern music, better.

    Story

    This is not an encyclopedia of all Doctor Who incarnations, companions and villains. It is a brief history of the Doctor both on-screen and off-screen from the beginning, focusing especially on the politics behind the scenes.

    There is an entire chapter on the Daleks, and an emphasis on Gallifrey. As a viewer of the modern series with no knowledge of the classic Doctors, this was a brilliant journey through time (pun intended) which helped me appreciate the show even more.

    Premiering the day after the JFK assassination, Doctor Who humbly launched one of the entertainment world's first super-brands. We begin with a look at TV programming of the day and the original pitch documents before delving into the Daleks, which almost didn't make the cut but inspired many monsters to follow. After three years, First Doctor William Hartnell left, prompting the BBC to recast their hit rather than end it, giving us the first "regeneration" and making TV history.

kris's greatest hits:
  • Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian

    "Mixed feelings but mostly good"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not at the top, but in the top levels


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian?

    I appreciated getting an insiders look at the OJ - Nicole tragedy. And I was happy to know that even someone as close to them as the Kardashian's could see through all the BS and see the true psychopath OJ is.


    What about Marcia Strassman and Kris Jenner (introduction) ’s performance did you like?

    I like Kris' voice in the intro. I wish she would have narrated the whole book. With all due respect for Ms. Strassman, I don't think her voice fit well with Kris' words. I was distracted by her raspier voice with Kris' face in my mind. Seemed like a mismatch.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Robert Kardashian's letter to her after the OJ trial. This book made me really admire Robert Kardashian. What an amazing man he was. And also, learning about Bruce Jenner. He sounds like a great guy too. I don't watch their show, so I enjoyed learning about them through Kris' perspective.Also, her talking about the loss of her Dads and Robert. That stirred up my personal experiences of my own losses. So those parts had me in tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book, but I cringed every time Kris talks about a vehicle. "I drove up in my Range Rover"."I rented a Mercedes Bus." "We got in the BMW Limo." We get it Kris - you have money. My friends and I either do, or have driven high end cars also, but none of us refer to them by the brand. That's so annoying and pompous.

    On another topic, with so many personal things she reveals in the book about herself and her family and also friends, I'm surprised there was no mention of Kim's sextape - unless I missed that. Urban Legend is that is what got the Kardashian's on the map and their show and began their fame. As a Mom myself, I wouldn't want to discuss things like that about my daughters either, but with all that WAS revealed in the book, it surprised me that was not.

    Bottom line is, Kris has had some awesome opportunities which she very wisely acted on and ultimately became the person she is today. Yeah - a little hiccup with Ryan, but so what. She is a brilliant business woman with six gorgeous children and a great family. She's lucky and she's blessed.

  • Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption - from South Central to Hollywood

    "I have a whole new respect for this man!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you listen to Ice again? Why?

    Absolutely. He is brutally honest and writes with style and swagger. Also, while my husband never got in to crime (thank God!) there are so many similarities with them. When Ice says "I shouldn't have lived past 21" it really struck a chord with me. I remember at my husband's 10 year class reunion (32 years ago) people were telling him, "I thought you'd be dead by now!" Like Ice, my husband has swagger, the most important thing to my husband is his family, and he has worked hard for everything he's gotten - just like Ice. He even sort of resembles Ice! Several times throughout the book, I felt like Ice and my husband could be friends. I am encouraging my husband to listen to it also.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how he tells it all, no holds barred. He goes in to every aspect of where he started and how he got where he is.


    Which character – as performed by Mirron Willis – was your favorite?

    Ice T of course


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Much of it moved me, I teared up several times. But I literally laughed out loud when he talks about confronting his son when the son came to Arizona for his visit on Spring Break. Without giving away WHAT they talked about, the way Ice tells it is hysterical.
    I also admire how he talks about Sharon Osborne. Who would have ever thought (not knowing any of them personally) that someone like Ice would see Sharon in the perspective he does AND be willing to say it publicly. I really respect him after hearing his book.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a total sidebar. If you have a chance to share it with Ice, please do. I looked up on line Darlene Ortiz. Yes, a beautiful woman. But I was disgusted by all the negative comments people said about Coco on that particular website. Ice describes Coco as a "Human Jessica Rabbit". He says it with love and pride. Coco certainly isn't shaped like the average girl, but so what! She is ADORABLE. Ice loves her just as she is, so all the mean people should keep their comments to themselves. If they like how Darlene looks - she is gorgeous too - then say that. But leave Coco out of it. Coco and Ice are wonderful together and I hope they continue their lives together forever.

  • Crash and Burn

    "CRASH & BURN & SAVED"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Crash and Burn the most enjoyable?

    Artie's honesty intertwined with his signature humor


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    His Mom, sister, and Adrienne. Amazing women.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he and the young guy were pulled over by cops and left to spend the night in the car. The way Artie tells that scene, I could almost see it as if I were there. Hysterical.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was hard to put down because I could hardly wait to hear what happened next. I was rooting for him at every chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    These celebrity "train wreck to sobriety" stories never cease to amaze me. The depths of what people do for drugs is beyond my comprehension. I have two glasses of wine and I worry about dumb things I may have done. I cannot imagine what they live through, by their own admission, by their own choices. It's always great to learn they've beat the demons.

  • I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High

    "You'll Love Tony Danza Even More!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had the most enjoyable?

    Hearing Tony talk with that trademark accent. You can just picture him sitting across from you sharing his experience.


    What other book might you compare I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had to and why?

    None, this was unique because Tony's experience was unique.


    Which character – as performed by Tony Danza – was your favorite?

    Tony himself. I love the honesty he tells the story with. And I love how he refused to semi-script his reality show, even at the risks that were presented as a result.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laugh at his story telling, I cried with him many times. His soft heart is so admirable!


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who has been in the teaching profession or even knows someone in the teaching profession will love this book. It is so relatable. Plus, who DOESN'T love Tony Danza?!

  • "Outstanding!"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    I had this book in my wish list for two years and without a doubt, that was a huge mistake. This book was outstanding! Not a huge tennis fan but this is such a great story. I loved hearing about Andre when he was little. I loved hearing about his rise to the tennis ranks and I loved listening to how he remained on top. I even loved hearing about his personal relationships as well. Most impressively, the narrator did a tremendous job and the book is written in such a great way, it made me wonder if Agassi actuallly did write this. If so, he writing ability may be as good as his tennis talents! Two thumbs up and highly recommended!!!

Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Even from the perspective of time, it is nearly impossible to grasp the full contribution made to music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in his brief and glorious life. He composed his first symphony at the age of 8 and reached full artistic maturity by the time he was only 20. And when he died at the age of 35, he left a legacy of more than 600 works of brilliance - symphonies, chamber music, operas, and more - most composed during an incredibly productive 20-year period.

    Ludwig van Beethoven is justifiably acclaimed as one of the most revered composers in the history of Western music-a genius once characterized as a "Titan, wrestling with the gods." There is no better way for you to understand the full impact of that description than to not only listen to all nine of his magnificent symphonies, but to do so with a full understanding of what this great composer was saying and the circumstances that drove him up to and beyond what had once been considered the limits of musical expression.

    Almost from the moment it was first set to paper, the music of Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) - technically superb, rich in quality, and widely imitated - has exemplified the Classical style, creating not only the Classical-era symphony but setting the standard, through his own 68 string quartets, against which that form has ever after been judged. And yet Haydn, despite the influence left by more than 1000 works, seems to no longer get his due, Now, in a series of eight vivid lectures, you can learn to understand and appreciate the music of one of the most original and influential composers of all time.

    The concerto offers a kind of unique excitement no other instrumental music can match. Where a symphony enthralls us with its thematic variations and development, a concerto gives us human drama-the exhilaration of a soloist or group of soloists ringing forth against the mass of the orchestra.In 24 musically rich lectures, Professor Greenberg provides a guided tour of the concerto, from its conception as a child of Renaissance ideals, through its maturation in the Classical age, its metamorphosis in the Romantic era, and its radical transformation in the 20th century and beyond.

    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Ron says: "Must have for any Adam Carolla Fan!"
