    FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his argument that religion is one of society's greatest antagonists. What Daniel doesn't know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer - known only as "Eve" - will end in his own death at Eve's hand. Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those 20 missing minutes.

    With the sweep and vitality of a great novel, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough presents the enthralling story of John Adams. This is history on a grand scale - an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Read by History Channel host Edward Herrmann!

    Thomas says: "fantastic"

    Bought the abridged version by accident. Loved this book, but I felt like I'd missed all the good parts. Get the unabridged version.

  • Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - and How It Can Renew America

    Friedman brings a fresh outlook to the crises of destabilizing climate change and rising competition for energy - both of which could poison our world if we do not act quickly and collectively. His argument speaks to all of us who are concerned about the state of America in the global future.

    I love Tom Freidman's research and the perspective he brings to this work. I just wish the audio weren't so tedious and seemingly repetitive. I normally avoid abridged books, but this one might have have the same impact without so much detail. All in all, however, I was moved by the urgency of the problem and the inherent opportunity in being the country to solve it. It made me remember the choice we had in 2000 between Gore and Bush. I frankly thought that it wasn't much of a choice and, because I live in a red state, I voted for Nader. Freidman vividly illustrates how the leadership opportunity that 9/11 posed to our country was mishandled by Bush and we can only imaging how Gore might have approached it differently. I recommend the book.
