    The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9-11 Commission, was created by congressional legislation and the signature of President George W. Bush in late 2002. This independent, bipartisan commission had the task of producing a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the attack, including preparedness and immediate response, and providing recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.

    "Must have...gives a realistic picture"
    Overall

    I was a bit skeptical about this 9/11 report, however after listening to the first few minutes I could not stop listening. It gives good picture of the hell that those who died went through. There are graphic descriptions of the on board struggele of passengers and victims. It tells so much about the chaos happened on that crazy day, with America's defence system. We were lucky it wasn't a nuke! Don't hesitate - buy this and listen to it.

    Since Sam Walton's death in 1992, Wal-Mart has gone from being the largest retailer in the world to holding the top spot on the Fortune 500 list as the largest company in the world. Don Soderquist, who was senior vice chairman during that time, played a crucial role in that success. Sam Walton said, "I tried for almost 20 years to hire Don Soderquist....But when we really needed him later on, he finally joined up and made a great chief operating officer."

    "Eye opener"
    Overall

    I'm an Open University business student. This book has been a real eyeopener. The WalMart principles can be adopted by most British businesses to maximise profits. I felt really satisfied reading this book. If you think this book is about American hype that is specific to American culture, you are wrong. I'm serious. Anyone who is interested in starting a business or improving their business, should read this book. I really love the WalMart principles. WalMart is aggressive in protecting and serving its customers. Now what's wrong with that? Nothing really. I tell you, get this book and listen to the the first three chapters. Find out what how Sam Walton rose to meteoric success in business. This book is generous in sharing Sam's core values and principles. This book could be worth several thousand times the cost of it. Whether and how you use it is what matters. I'm thankful to Don Soderquist for sharing so much with us.

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

    Ann Marie says: "I will isten again and again"
    "A masterpiece on the human condition"
    Overall

    Frankl captures the world of the concentration camp with stunning vividness. As a psychiatrist he describes the madness of Auschwitz that could bring one to tears. He puts to shame the evil that is of the human condition. One is left in awe and disgust at what we have become and what we have the potential to become. This book is a must read for those who really want an insight into real suffering. After this book one is fortified, confident in the knowledge that no hell is worsse than what Frankl and others endured. One is awakened by coming to face with the potential evil that lives in us all - that which may be released in the set up of the concentration camp. This is about what Guantanamo Bay may have bordered on. As a fellow psychiatrist myself, I was able to walk with Frankl and be with him. I almost smelt and touched the scenes he described. His book is also a survival manual for the hopeless. Don't kill yourself - read this!!
