  • Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 11 mins)
    • By Jon Krakauer
    • Narrated By Scott Brick

    Story
    (200)

    The best-selling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, and Under the Banner of Heaven delivers a stunning, eloquent account of a remarkable young man's haunting journey. Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers, Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast. In May 2002, Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army.

    Daniel says: "Good book, painful narration"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Well written. You really get to understand Tillman while also insight into the challenges of combat realities.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"
    "Not to be missed by tech and biz folks"

    Story

    Compelling life, talent and tragedy. Even the personal relationships are fascinating. Gates, Woz, Makula, wives and girlfriends, kids. Didn't expect that on top of the great product stories.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"

  • The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America

    Story
    (32)

    In this groundbreaking epic biography, Douglas Brinkley draws on never-before-published materials to examine the life and achievements of our "naturalist president." By setting aside more than 230 million acres of wild America for posterity between 1901 and 1909, Theodore Roosevelt made conservation a universal endeavor. This crusade for the American wilderness was perhaps the greatest U.S. presidential initiative between the Civil War and World War I.

    Robert says: "Inspirational"
    "Great history of our land preservation"
    Overall

    Great insight into TR's passion and visionary actions to protect our natural resources. A little too much detail on all the preservation actions for my liking though. Could have been half this length.

  • Too Big to Fail

    Story
    (471)

    A real-life thriller about the most tumultuous period in America's financial history by an acclaimed New York Times reporter. Andrew Ross Sorkin delivers the first true, behind-the-scenes, moment-by-moment account of how the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression developed into a global tsunami.

    Laura says: "Surprisingly Revealing"
    "Interesting but mundane"
    Overall

    These personalities are not as interesting as you'd expect.
