This book provides important details that remind us of the inherent problems with Obamacare. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to remain conversant with the actual facts as this issue takes on a new emotional life during the presidential campaign.
This behind-the-scene's view of the Vatican is at times at times tedious, and at times intriguiging. Overall it is informative and very interesting. The portraits of the last two popes is most insightful.For those following the the conclave it is well worth listening to.
This is a light, breezy book in line with the author's own entertaining style. It is made more pleasant by the author reading it himself. What has made Dick Van Dyke such a likeable person is his self-effacement. He really seems to believe that luck rather than talent is the reason for his success. Certainly he was fortunate to team up with Carl Reiner but, viewing his work, one can say that Carl was as fortunate to find him. Surprising was his strong spiritual sense and sincere moral convictions. Unfortunate, in my opinion, was the lack of development in this area. The shallow soil of Tinseltown does seem to make it difficult for genuine spiritual growth. While he occasionally alludes to the demons with which he has dealt, he does not go into details. And that is just as well. Stories of the fall and redemption of celebrities are as boring as they are predictable. In this work one is impressed by the fact that, for the most part, the author has managed to keep these demons at bay. That he has also managed to survive as a genuinely good person in this narcissistic culture is itself impressive. There is hope yet for Hollywood.
