  • Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry

    In their new book, Unfit for Command, John O'Neill and co-author Jerome Corsi bring together the words of more than 200 Navy veterans who served with John Kerry and who feel it their duty to tell why Kerry is unworthy of the presidency.

    Overall

    Whether or not you agree with their conclusions or motivations, the authors raise important questions about Kerry's four months in Vietnam. Amazingly these questions have been entirely ignored by the mainstream media. Was he a war hero or just a tireless self promoter? I've certainly drawn my own conclusions from this book and other sources. I do not understand the outrage, since this is not any more one-sided or illogical than what Michael Moore and others have put out in this election year.

    Sing your way to a new language, anytime, anywhere! The new enhanced edition of Rush Hour Spanish includes two audio programs, a bonus music-only version of favorite Rush Hour songs, and a free downloadable word game (see www.berlitzbooks.com for link). Original music and catchy songs help you remember everyday words, phrases, and sentences, and the exciting storyline keeps you involved. Fun to use alone or with your family!

    "Goofy but Effective"
    Overall

    I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning Spanish or brushing up before a trip. The songs and dialogue are a little cheesy but entertaining and most importantly effective. The words in some of the dialogue and songs are a little hard to hear, and this is probably more effective for someone with a little familiarity with Spanish. Someone starting from scratch should probably use this in conjunction with or after some basic instruction.

    This is very useful for someone who has no knowledge or familiarity with Spanish. It is an effective way to learn pronunciation and common phrases to develop familiarity and confidence with the language. This is an excellent way to start learning Spanish.

    "Useful and Effective"
    Overall

    This is a useful and effective way to learn introductory vocabulary and pronunciation. I found this very helpful and would recomend it to someone who is serious about trying to learn Spanish. You will need to use Levels 2 and 3 to have a practical knowledge of Spanish. Level 1 standing alone is not enough.

    Even four years after the sudden death of his wife, best selling novelist Mike Noonan can't stop grieving, nor can he return to his writing. He moves into his isolated house by the lake, which becomes the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here - and what do they want of Mike Noonan?

    "A different King"
    Overall

    I was very pleasantly surprised. King shows a different range in this book. The depth of characters and complex storylines demonstrate King's matrurity and mastery as a writer. This is a long story, with many plotlines and characters, but the characters remained interesting throughout. You really care about what happens to them, and that is what good fiction writing is all about.

  • The Greatest Speeches of All Time

    More than 40 speeches - considered among the greatest of all time - comprise this marvelous collection. All the works you'll hear are unabridged, and the most contemporary are live recordings. Included are speeches by Susan B. Anthony, Joan of Arc, Winston Churchill, Jefferson Davis, Amelia Earhart, and John F. Kennedy.

    A User says: "Choices and Reality"
    "Who picked these speeches?"
    Overall

    The selection and editing of these speeches were sometimes disappointing. Some clearly great historical speeches are included -- but I was too frequently baffled by the inclusion of marginal speeches from "left-of-center" political figures. Why do we hear an extended, tiresome speech by Carter on energy policy, yet only a snippet from Reagan's compelling speech on the Cold War several years later? Why so much Clinton, Roosevelt, Lenin, and Robespierre? Also, there is a decidedly American bent to this that may disappoint listeners from other parts of the world.
