  • What's So Great About America

    America is under attack as never before - not only from terrorists, but from people who provide a rationale for terrorism. Best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza takes on all of America's critics and proves them wrong - as perhaps only a writer with an immigrant's understanding of this country can.

    Overall

    This book was outstanding! It should be required reading at the high school level. Mr. D'Souza has a wonderful ability to break down into concise, yet thourough chapters, the critical aspects of current American life; each of which have been discussed, debated and written about at great length. He provides historical & current political, social and moral perspectives and then leads to thoughtful, well supported, and logical conclusions. If you are entertained by thoughtful insight with relevance to our lives today, you will love this book. I could not stop listening once I started. I will be seeking out his other works.

  • The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance

    In this landmark new study of Western thought, Anthony Gottlieb looks afresh at the writings of the great thinkers, questions much of conventional wisdom, and explains his findings with unbridled brilliance and clarity. After finishing The Dream of Reason, listeners will be graced with a fresh appreciation of the philosophical quest, its entertaining and bizarre byways, and its influence on every aspect of life.

    Amazon Customer says: "An in depth read."
    "Just too dry for me."
    Overall

    I have now listened to around 10 to 15 audiobooks on Audible and this is the first one I have not enjoyed. This material is just too dry. It may have been too much to hope for, however I was really expecting a more entertaining listen. I have listened to other historical books, but they always seemed to add a theatrical element to their lesson. This book did not and so I do not recommend it for anyone seeking anything beyond mere facts in written form.
