    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Story

    Everything about this is mediocre. The story tired,the explanations are uninspiring and there are only 2 characters I found interesting. That was not enough to hold my interest to even finish listening.

    From primitive man's cowrie shells to the electronic cash card, from the markets of Timbuktu to the New York Stock Exchange, The History of Money explores how money and the myriad forms of exchange have affected humanity, and how they will continue to shape all aspects of our lives--economic, political, and personal.

    Story

    A bit dry and historical, but none the less a fascinating history. A good reflection as to the relationship of money, the world economy and our society.

    A pioneering neuroscientist shares his story of growing up in one of Miami's toughest neighborhoods and how it led him to his groundbreaking work in drug addiction. As a youth, Carl Hart didn't realize the value of school; he studied just enough to stay on the basketball team. At the same time, he was immersed in street life. Today he is a cutting-edge neuroscientist - Columbia University's first tenured African American professor in the sciences.

    Story

    This is an amazing and intriguing book. A weaving of autobiography, scientific research and cultural application. An honest introspective look at all three. A must listen/read. Thank you Dr Hart for this book. I can only appreciated the emotional effort and I am deeply grateful for allowing me into this personal yet objective space.

  • Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

    Best-selling author Mary Roach returns with a new adventure to the invisible realm we carry around inside. Roach takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour. The alimentary canal is classic Mary Roach terrain: The questions explored in Gulp are as taboo, in their way, as the cadavers in Stiff and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored in Packing for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find words for flavors and smells? Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts?

    Story

    This is such an interesting book. A messy subject written in a light and interesting hand. But beware! It is not one for those who have a delicate stomach. Some of the historical animal research was difficult to know about although it was put in the book to support ideas and not for shock value,

  • Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

    Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. Character driven and dialogue rich, replete with extravagantly detailed scenes, this is the occasion-ally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

    Joe says: "Best Audiobook of 2010!"
    "Great Entertainment"
    Overall

    Now that we know the outcome, this connects a lot of the dots that were in question. As avidly as I followed the 'Race', I was surprised at how much is revealed in retrospect. This is an interesting book that is revealing and doesn't hurt anyone.

  • What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception

    Story

    Scott McClellan belonged to President Bush's select inner circle of trusted advisers during one of the most challenging, contentious periods of recent history. Over a period of more than seven years, he witnessed, day-to-day, exactly how the presidency veered off course, not only by its decision to topple Saddam Hussein, but by an embrace of confrontational politics in the face of an increasingly partisan Washington and a hostile media.

    Frank J. Regan says: "Something is Missing"
    "Mia Culpa"
    Overall

    This book is well written, but his revelations are a bit late in coming. The information is interesting, but his myriad of justifications for his actions and denial of consequences of events sounds a bit like he wants absolution for his sins. Mia culpa Scott. Good for you for coming clean, but I find it difficult to believe you are a smart person who was manipulated by an administration who took advantage of your blind faith and desire to do good.
