    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    Loved the book from start to finish. Penn's narration was great. The book has everything. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. But most importantly, it will make you think about the things that really matter in life.

    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.

    I read this book before Flash Boys, between the two, some of the best reading and listening I have done in a long time concerning finance and economics.

  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tough Sh-t to be better than the print version?

    Although I already have the audio version, I was in the bookstore today to look for this book. I couldn't believe the product placement of this brand NEW book. It was hidden in the back of the store. I complained to one of the employees and I told them it was bs that this book was not profiled at the front of the store!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kevin Smith is a genius. There were so many things I liked about this book its hard to pick out just one. But here it is. It has to do with the chapter on his movie Red State. And the reason why I enjoyed it so much is because I had watched Red State on Netflix a month prior and absolutely loved it!!!! But I didn't pay any attention to who made it. There was no way I could have ever dreamed that Kevin Smith was responsible its production. So here it is. Listening to that chapter, and discovering that this man was responsible for that movie, made me love and appreciate Kevin Smith at a whole new level.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book moved me from start to finish. It's hard to explain, but I feel as though Kevin Smith is a kindred spirit. From his reverence for George Carlin, to his brief reference of voodoo economics at the end of the book, this book was, in and of itself, a moving experience. Thank you Kevin for sharing it with me.

  • If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence, and Spirit

    Story
    (32)

    In her 93 remarkable years, veteran freelance writer, memoirist, and writing teacher Brenda Ueland published some six million words. She once said there were two simple rules that she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and to not do anything she didn't want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her best-selling classic that first appeared in the late 1930s and has inspired thousands to find their own creative center.

    Story

    The Trial and the Death of Socrates remains a powerful document not least because it gives a first-hand account of the end of one of the greatest figures in history.

    In Apology, Socrates defends himself before the Athenian court against charges of corrupting youth. Phaedo is the account by a young man of the actual last words and moments of Socrates.

    "Great Audio Book"

    This Was a great Audio book. The reader did an excellent job. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
