    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    Where does Decision Points rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great book for those wishing to see George Bush's decisions from his point of view. Love him or hate him, read this book to see his perspective. It may change your mind or solidify the view you already had.


    What does Ron McLarty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was great. He was easy to listen to, and brought the story life.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to listen to presidential perspectives on the events that occured durring their time. There is no greater office and no greater burdan than the Presidency of the United States. Because hindsight is often 20/20, much can be learned of life in their time, compared to life now. Granted not much time has passed for this one, but perspectives of the President himself cannot be disputed. They are his view of the problems he encountered.

  • Dear Leader: Poet, Spy, Escapee - A Look inside North Korea

    As North Korea's State Poet Laureate, Jang Jin-sung led a charmed life. With food provisions (even as the country suffered through its great famine), a travel pass, access to strictly censored information, and audiences with Kim Jong-il himself, his life in Pyongyang seemed safe and secure. But this privileged existence was about to be shattered. When a strictly forbidden magazine he lent to a friend goes missing, Jang Jin-sung must flee for his life.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    I found this book by browsing. I loved it. It was a nice refreshing story with a good twist at the end. I am thinking of course the movie will do it no justice.

  • Citizen Soldiers: The U.S. Army from the Normandy Beaches to the Bulge to the Surrender of Germany

    A masterful biography of the U.S. Army in the European Theater of Operations during World War II, Citizen Soldiers provides a compelling account of the extraordinary stories of ordinary men in their fight for democracy. From the high command on down to the enlisted men, Stephen E. Ambrose draws on hundreds of interviews and oral histories from men on both sides who were there.

    Would you listen to Citizen Soldiers again? Why?

    This is a great telling of WWII from the soldiers perspective. I read it some years ago and hearing it again I learned some new things I had forgotten. Stephen Ambrose has a way of telling a story that bring the words of history to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    His story telling keeps the listener listening. It's like watching a movie in your head.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could listen to this in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this makes me proud to be an American. Proud of our history and thankful of our past. Some may say our current generation couldn't do the same. Many have said the same of previous generations before. Gertrude Stein called the WWII generation, "The lost generation".

    I'm sure history will repeat itself if the current generation is ever called on to defend freedom on a massive scale. It will succeed and we will prevail.

    What a great book.
