    Ace on the River is designed to improve the play of everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals. Included are chapters on poker society, money management, family matters, and even sex. This compilation of philosophies and real-table scenarios provides a rare chance to see the poker world through the eyes of someone who lives it.

    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's clear he wishes he spent more time with his family and less gambling. He offers good insights into life as a gambler. Phil Gordon's book was more helpful in improving my game. I think Phil Helmuth's book will make you a bad player. Of course, I loved SUPER SYSTEM 2 by Doyle Brunson (wish it was on audio). That being said, Ace on the River is the most enjoyable of the "poker" books available at audible.com. I think his life lessons, like those given in SUPER SYSTEM 2, are as valuable as the strategies and techniques.

  • The Assault on Reason

    Here is a visionary analysis of how the politics of fear, secrecy, cronyism, and blind faith have combined with the public sphere's degradation to create an environment dangerously hostile to reason. Never has there been a worse time for us to lose the capacity to face the reality of our long-term challenges, from national security to the economy, from issues of health and social welfare to the environment. As The Assault on Reason explains, we have precious little time to waste.

    Walter says: "Partisan but Valuable"
    "Political Junkies Will Love"
    Overall

    If you want a clearly explained, rational explanation of everything that's gone on in the last seven years, you'll love this book. It's for the political junkie, tough. I think Republicans and Democrats alike will find value in this resource. For serious conservative and moderates, this book shows how Bush has betrayed the Constitution and the United States. It paints a very clear, sometimes far too "rational" explanation of the crimes of the Bush Administration, and the guilt of the mass media, both "liberal" and "conservative" in abandoning "reason" for entertainment about celebrities. When profit comes before country, we get what we have. Gore shows how. And while his meanderings on climate change detract a bit from the reasoned approach of the rest of the book. The rest of the book makes this one well worth listening to.

    You are the world. Why be a tiny part when you can be the whole? Don't be the ego - why be satisfied with such a small, ugly thing, when you can become the divine? These remarkable discourses are original, live recordings made during Osho's extemporaneous daily talks to audiences of disciples and visitors at his meditation retreat in Poona, India.

    Joshua says: "Funny and Enjoyable for Osho fans only"

    Overall

    If you like Osho, you'll love his humorous "meditations" on the Tao. Taken from a talk at Puna, the background noises are apparent, but the honesty, humor and teaching is clear. It's not as much a straight-forward explanation of Taoism or the Tao Te Ching as a non-Osho person would like. The context is different than just explaining the Tao.

    If you like Osho, get this one. It's a keeper. If you don't know Osho or don't like him, it'd probably be better to have an idea of what Osho's about before getting this one.

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    A. Hawley says: "Beautifully narrated"
    "Solid Entertainment - Scary and Delicious"
    Overall

    It's the ultimate trickster myth written in a fast-paced, pager turner. You come to like the loathesome character(s). This is like a well-written Stephen King novel, just a lot better. An incredible listen, well acted, well read.

  • Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More

    If it seems like you work hard but never get anywhere, maybe the problem is something within you. Maybe the limitations holding you back come from inside you, not from the outside world. Zero Limits presents a proven way to break through those self-imposed limitations to achieve more in life than you ever dreamed.

    Todd says: "Don't waste your time or money"
    "Zero value"
    Overall

    I was extremely disappointed in this book which amounted to. The secret of zero limits according to some Hawaiian mumbo jumbo new age jargin is as follows:

    1. I love you
    2. I'm sorry
    3. Forgive me
    4. Thank you

    Basically by repeating these four sentiments to God/the Universe/whatever or other people, all your dreams will come true and good things will happen to those to whom you direct these sentiments. With the moral authority of a used car salesman, Joe Vitale, basically takes the ideas from this Hawaiian doctor who has miraculously cured an entire criminal psych ward simply by repeating the four sentiment mantra while looking at their files. "I love you. I'm sorry. I forgive you. Thank you."
    This book is like "The Secret" but minus any useful or positive information.
