    On this tour of Old Rome, you'll experience: the Piazza Navona; the spot where Julius Caesar was assassinated; Cosmic Caravaggio's; incredible coffee; art that tricks your eye; gelato that delights your palate; the Pantheon; a Renaissance masterpiece; a Baroque beauty; the remains of ancient temples, baths, and latrines; sweet, delicious water from fountains still fed by Roman springs; and a Michelangelo sculpture in Rome's only Gothic church.

    What an excellent idea! No need to purchase an audiotour, just download the program, go at your own pace and enjoy the sights.
    It's pretty good (and better than Romewalks) but these walks still need to be fleshed out a little better in my opinion. This was the best of the audio tour iPod files we found, and it was not a bad way to do Ancient Rome (and much better than going without a guide of any sort). But I do wish there was a bit more history and substance to much of the tour.

    The fourth edition of Basic Economics is both expanded and updated. A new chapter on the history of economics itself has been added, and the implications of that history examined. Among other additions throughout the book, a new section on the special role of corporations in the economy has been added to the chapter on government and big business.

    Who knew a book on economics would be so readable? I gave the book 5 stars because the material is so important. The reader is decent, but it's a book where it is a bit harder to judge the reader's talents...

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.
