    Al Franken reveals the alarming story of how Bush (barely) beat Kerry with his campaign of "fear, smear, and queers", and then claimed a nonexistent mandate; Republicans decided that Terri Schiavo would make "a great political issue"; Conservatives sought to undermine Social Security by using a strategy borrowed from...Vladimir Lenin; and more.

    Blashy says: "Great take on the Bush years & funny."
    "Thanks for recommending this dated book Audible!"

    Story

    I didn't realize I wanted to spend 8 hours listening to a dated retelling of the 2004 election, but apparently Audible thought I did. Thanks for the recommendation! It was great rehashing recent politics and hearing jokes about obscure political figures I'd forgotten about or perhaps had never heard in the first place. I stopped listening after about an hour.

    Story

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    Tina Fey is awesome. I want to be her friend. I want to have her follow me around and narrate my life. It was great listening to Tina narrate this story about her adolescence and other entertaining experiences before and after SNL and 30 Rock. I was surprised how honest she was about her personal life and people she's known. The second half of the book goes into a lot of detail about SNL and 30 Rock, so if you're not a fan of those shows, you might not enjoy this book as much as I did, but she's very funny, and a great writer.

  • Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable about Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business

    In his latest engrossing work of business fiction, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni provides a cure for the most painful yet underestimated problem of modern business: bad meetings. And what he suggests is both simple and revolutionary.

    Story

    Wow, I must be really out of touch or hard to entertain, but I keep hating all these highly rated audiobooks. This idiotic "parable" is a little too lifelike to be called a "parable." It basically spent the first few chapters reenacting boring meetings to demonstrate the importance of not conducting boring meetings. What a waste of time!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Story

    Is it just me, or is something supposed to happen in a book? OK granted I stopped listening after chapter 4, but there was nothing to hook me. It was just a stream of consciousness form a very intelligent dog, that seemed to be a vehicle for the author to expound his bland thoughts on life and what it means to be human.
