    The world is a mess. It seems that everywhere listeners turn, there's another problem. What is needed now are solutions. If only there was a man who could simplify things, cut through the rhetoric, and fix everything. Then, if he was just able to put all of that insight into something that people could buy...in a store and online...man, that would great. Wait a minute!

    A great little book...full of very timely good sense and facts aplenty with which you may be a better informed citizen, parent, etc.

  • The Neon Rain: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    S. Sand says: "The perfect combination of author and narrator"
    "just one question Mr. Burke..."
    Overall

    are you going to give Mike Hammer some more work pretty soon?

    In complementing James Lee I'll resist comparisons and characterizations of his writing.I will simply say that in this day and age and place where I sell you my money's worth, James Lee Burke's books are a worthy exception. I enjoy them, I benefit from them and I look forward to the next one. The only thing I would change is to have more opportunity to combine Burke and Hammer... It's just flat works!

  • Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's History and Future

    A simple walk through Washington, D.C. began a profound journey of personal discovery and renewal for Newt Gingrich, one of America's most influential politicians and commentators. At the National Archives, the immortal words from the Declaration of Independence that we "are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights," jumped off the page and into his heart with the simple truth that from day one in our country's history, the Author of freedom was not the state nor even the Founding Fathers. Our basic human rights and freedoms were -and are - "Creator-endowed."

    T. F. Plona says: "Great content - would have been better in DC"
    "Most excellent!"
    Overall

    Should be included in school curriculum...

    This collection contains live recordings of two 90-minute workshops on creative writing: "Thickening the Plot" by Carolyn Banks and "Finding Your Literary Voice" by Benjamin Alire Saenz.

    Eric L. says: "1 Yes, 2 No"
    "1 Yes, 2 No"
    Overall

    This second of the On Writing books is a disappointing "suckcessor" to Vol. 1. My advice: read Vol. 1 twice.

    Here are four of this famous author's speeches, recorded live. Known for his award-winning fiction, Elmer Kelton is highly sought after as a keynote speaker. His vast knowledge of, and passion for, the subjects he uses as backdrops for his novels is evident in these finely-crafted, humorous talks.

    Salt Lake Joan says: "Spend time with someone you want for a friend"
    "Like fishin'..."
    Overall

    Like fishin', reading Kelton's stories is enjoyable and the time spent is, I think, just added on to the end of one's life.
