    An exhilarating journey into the mind and spirit of a remarkable man, a legendary teacher, and a masterful storyteller, conducted by TV journalist Bill Moyers for their acclaimed PBS series.

    Lucas says: "A series that changed my life"
    "Incomparable"
    Overall

    Moyers and Campbell do a wonderful job of bringing an esoteric subject to the mainstream and making it relevant. It is one of the best programs I've listened to all year (and there are many). I will be searching for more like this.

  • Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Jill says: "Heaven is For Real"
    "One of the Worst books I have ever listened to"

    What disappointed you about Heaven Is for Real?

    The author wastes time and talks about inane, meaningless minutia. Way too much of a Christian slant. I could barely get through the first chapter alone.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dean Gallagher’s performances?

    NEVER


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a book on Near Death Experiences and the existence of an afterlife from a non-religious perspective there are numerous books to choose from that are far, far better than this one. I am sorry I wasted a credit on this book.

  • A Little History of the World

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By E. H. Gombrich

    Story
    (109)

    E. H. Gombrich's world history, an international best seller now available in English for the first time, is a text dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's achievements, and an acute witness to its frailties.

    Edward says: "an enlightening book; very well read"
    "Inaccurate Title"
    Overall

    While this book was well done, it was not at all what I expected. Let's be clear on what this book is and is not. It is NOT a history of the world. It is a history of Europe with emphasis on Germany. There were very few details on Asia, Russia and the Americas. The American Revolution was discussed in one sentence. Same with the Civil War. I would have rated it higher if the title were more accurate and the promotional write-up wasn't full of Bulls**t. But then, I wasn't looking for a history of Europe but one of the world.

    On the other hand the narration was good, the story moved along and if you have children, especially if they are German, they will probably enjoy it. As an adult you may find the writing somewhat paternalistic, but remember it is written for an audience of school-age children.
