    Story

    I had previously read Ben Franklin's Autobiography which was very good, but I really had wanted to hear his part in the founding of the nation. I highly recommend the autobiography as well, because it gives his personal style, flair and philosophy which helped him become who he was. It is very good, but I really wanted more and this book gave it to me. I so enjoyed listening to how much of a part he played not only in the shaping of the antecedents to the Revolution, but the part he played during the war. The Declaration of Independence, and the Constitutional Convention are either glossed over or left out of his autobiography. I had no idea he created batteries, discovered the gulf stream currents in the Atlantic, or that he conducted his own end of the war in Euroope as an envoy to France. I'm amazed at how much a visionary he was and how much he shaped our current society, by creating public libraries, and hospitals as well as the US Postal service and currency. His ability to motivate the public and move them in his direction without taking credit is a model to any modern day politician. This doesn't say anything about his scientific discoveries. The man is an amazing study and well worth any time and credits. I really loved this book. I don't think I can recommend it highly enough.

    Perhaps more than even Washington, Jefferson, or Adams, Ben Franklin is the Founding Father who best exemplifies the authentic American spirit and values. Eminent historian Thomas Fleming paints a lively portrait of this self-made man blessed with a wealth of talents: a best-selling author, the most important newspaper publisher in America, and a world-renowned scientist and inventor before he took on the task of becoming the true "Father" of American independence.

    I enjoyed this book. I read a lot of the holocaust literature and some WWII history --this story was definitely one of the will to survive. The family was so close to being able to leave Nazi Germany but instead the story is an accounting is of their life of struggle for 6 years. It's a 2-1/2 hour read and I recommend

    Marion Blumenthal Lazan's unforgettable memoir recalls the devastating years that shaped her childhood. Following Hitler's rise to power, the Blumenthal family - father, mother, Marion, and her brother, Albert - were trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon thereafter it was occupied by the Nazis. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps that included Westerbork in Holland and the notorious Bergen-Belsen in Germany.

    In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Missouri River, across the forbidding Rockies, and - by way of the Snake and the Columbia rivers - down to the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and his partner, Captain William Clark, endured incredible hardships and witnessed astounding sights. With great perseverance, they worked their way into an unexplored West. When they returned two years later, they had long since been given up for dead.

He also counterpoints his story with another man, someone who shared the same name, was almost the same age, grew up fatherless in a similar Baltimore neighborhood, but is serving a life sentence for murder. Compelled to write to the other Wes, the author was surprised to receive a reply. And so began a friendship, as letters turned into visits and the two men got to know one another.

    Why would I see the need to write about a horrible “bizarre bullying” experience that I had as a teen in the 1970s, rather than relate all of the glory days I experienced? I think we sometimes forget about how hard it can be for a teen to survive the challenges of growing into adulthood. I believe by sharing one of my own negative life experiences, I can help to demonstrate how serious bullying can be in the lives of teenagers, who are trying to grow up in a tough and sometimes cruel world.

    Good. Evil. Dangerous. Glamorous. Will the real Cleopatra please stand up? Almost everything we know about the last queen of Egypt came from her enemies the Romans. Now it's time to meet the ''real'' Cleopatra, a ruler more complex, brilliant, and powerful than we ever knew. Cleopatra didn't just rock the boat when she became queen at seventeen. She rocked the world with brilliant alliances that kept her in power and in control. When Mark Antony tried to put Egypt under his thumb, she negotiated for - and won - more territory than any Egyptian ruler had snagged in generations.
