    "A great Audible selection"
    Overall

    I have been subscribing to the Forbes magazine as my monthly periodical almost since I first started listening to Audible. About 1 hour, biweekly is a great fit to my schedule, and I generally find the content interesting. Naturally, not all the articles are going to be relevent for every listener, but overall I find it well worth the time.

  • One God, Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam [Portable Professor]

    The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship, frequently defined by conflict, over the course of millennia of coexistence.

    David says: "No Faith Needed"
    "A very interesting topic."
    Overall

    I found this to be extremely informative. Before listening to this "book", I really didn't understand the relationship between the three failths. I will definately be listening to this one over again so that I might better absorb the points and comparisons.

    The casual lecture style of the presentation is a nice deviation from the polished style of typical audio books.

    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Robert says: "Captivating & Fluid Bio Unique American immigrant"
    "Excellent, Excellent, Excellent"
    Overall

    The recorded length of the unabridged version of this title may seem daunting, but the hours just fly by. The author does a fantastic job of presenting the unique combination of skills and talents that were possessed by Alexander Hamilton. It is fascinating to listen to the significant part he played in securing and developing the government we live with to this day. Maybe I wasn?t paying enough attention, but it seems like my history classes never gave him the prominence he deserves.

  • The Republic

    In The Republic, Plato tackles the big issues of the state and the individual: how the state should be ruled, and by whom; and the way the individual should lead his life - and why. The lively quality of the dialogue can be clearly appreciated in this new translation by Tom Griffith.

    Plato777 says: "One of the best book ever written! Period."
    "Well worth the time."
    Overall

    I picked this title on sort of a whim, primarily because of its status as a timeless classic. I was initially skeptical as it represents a marked divergence from the types of audiobooks I am wont to select. Almost to my surprise, I found that I really enjoyed listening to it. I can now appreciate its reputation for provoking thought and reflection.

    The narrator did a fine job in his ability to engage the listener, however he did have a tendency to reduce to a whisper that was often difficult to hear.
