Holter Graham also narrated a great new book "No Easy Day". Hearing Holter's voice again after listening to this book, the Kings of Cool was a distraction. The Kings of Cool was just hard to listen to, and the numbered sentences ( into the hundreds ) sucked. Its like, here comes one sentence - or two, then the number is announced "148". Then two more sentences then "149", then another sentence, "150", and on and on... I guess there is movie speak for whats going on here, but it sucks to be on the receiving end. The book jumped all over the place. I'm a worker. I listen to books while doing other things. There are so many great books on Audible. Books like," No Easy Day" and "Steve Jobs". " I Heard You Paint Houses" (Unabridged)- and "Griftopia" a Matt Taibbi book, - "Legacy of Ashes" by Tim Weiner, and on and on, that you can stay with and not have to go back to get a point, well this book is not one of them. Hard to listen to, and a book that leaves you with a feeling of relief- That its over!!! No redeeming value in this book.
In the top five. The course was perfect for me. I subscribe to Audible mainly for the non-fiction. The new Great Courses section is now my favorite.I fell short of an AA degree after the Army because I had to return to work. With the Great Courses option, I can now get up to speed on what I am most interested in, and be in a much better place when I return to school. This course - Confucius, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad was an excellent way to begin Great Courses. It was Taught and Narrated so well. There were very few - if any - areas that I wanted to speed threw. In-fact I hit my 30 sec. back button hundreds of times. The subject matter was perfect. It was taught in such a way that I can return to this course over and over, without the dread. We are lucky and blessed to now live in a time that a common laborer can continue to labor at his or her job, yet be able to study these Great Courses at the same time,satisfying our minds while at the same time satisfying our work ethic.I will now keep my eye on any and all of Professor Mark W. Muesse's courses.
In three words? How about.. We Gave Stingers !!
I read this book before the movie was in production. The book was great. I haven't read it again since the movie came out, but will again someday.Charlie Wilson's War was very well done. The writing, the narration both were spot on. Non-Fiction and entertaining. Well worth the one credit.
No I wouldn't. I Just need a fiction book that is unpredictable.
This book just didn't do it for me. Way too slow and easy.
I will not give up on John Grisham, but "A Painted House" fell short "sale".
It was all great. The intensity of Matt Taibbi is a joy to listen to.
The narration by Patrick Egan was spot on.
Well worth the one credit. Looking forward to Matts next book.
This is a book that is well worth the one credit.
Stephen Kinzer wrote an excellent book, Michael Prichard narrated perfectly.
A must read piece of the puzzle that helps document American history.
Easy to stay with, and facts well researched. Well done.
History your college courses left out. Well worth the one credit.
A must read.The book flowed perfectly and the narrator was spot on.
I'm always looking for a great- or good audible read. this book did not disappoint.
This was another expertly done audible selection. The narration was perfect, the story was gripping, and as a non-fiction fan this was a perfect book for me. I am now less confused about the disappearance of James Hoffa, including the ending scenario. There are also JFK tie in's. You cannot discount this book.
This book is well worth the one credit.
A very well written Non Fiction book, with no gimmicks. Easy to listen to, understand, with a great ending. This book is a " must purchase" Audible selection.
Non fiction, straight to the facts. The book flowed great in Audible form. Couldn't put it down.
I'm coming off one of the worst books in the Audible library( The Kings of Cool ) with the same narrator, Holter Graham. The Kings of Cool is the book that inspired the movie "Savages". It was friggin torture. The time of the audio book is about the same as No Easy Day. I finished No Easy Day in one day. I couldn't put it down. After two months Ive yet to finish The Kings of Cool. And when I heard the voice of Holter Graham I cringed.Even in this book he can give a feminine voice where it definitely doesn't belong.In my opinion, No easy Day was a Home Run, Had a different narrator been chosen the audio book would have been a Grand Slam.
So many things could have gone wrong. Because of the quick action of the helicopter pilot " Teddy" soldiers lives, and the mission were saved". This was no sure thing. And I have to say some disappointment. There is a 2008 movie titled Virtual JFK, director Koji Masutani. The movie examines JFK, and his Vietnam policy. What difference can the President make regarding the lives of those who serve our country and Military? By the end of that war, 58,000 American soldiers died with over 2 million enemy/civilian deaths. I do not believe America would have been taken down that road if JFK had been alive. The President can make all the difference, He's choosing the path.
This book needed to be written, just to set the record straight. This is a special case, and I wish the Matt well. Now go cut the grass brother.
His uncompromising vision.
The way that the audiobook flowed. Just a perfect job putting this great book to audio.
not sure, I love the insight to his early years. I love that the book was allowed to be written with full descriptions his negative side, then approved by the Jobs family. I love the honesty of the book.
well, i started painting my house on chapter one. I finished the house on the last chapter.
I hesitated when this book came out. finally I gave in. I love audible, but some books just disappoint me. well, this book " Steve Jobs" was one of the great ones. It flowed perfectly. The narration - the story- the content, plus it was non-fiction -my favorite. This is a must read if you ask me. Out of 100 books that I have listened to, this book is in the top five. And Im not going to rate those, because they are all like great art. priceless.
