  • Great Men of Genius Series

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 40 mins)

    Story
    (32)

    Monologist Mike Daisey presents a dazzling new work: four "bio-logues" about megalomania and desire constructed from the interleaved life stories of Bertolt Brecht, P.T. Barnum, Nikola Tesla, and L. Ron Hubbard. Over four nights Daisey explores the nature of genius and wrestles with the pride, insanity, and chauvinism that bind these men together, and reveals how the heights and depths of their gifts have much to teach us about ourselves.

    Diane says: "Fantastic!"
    "The author is just too ridiculous."
    Overall

    I couldn't get past the author/reader. He was too obnoxious.

  • American Rebel: The Life of Clint Eastwood

    Story
    (15)

    From the New York Times best-selling author Marc Eliot comes the definitive biography of one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful actors, producers, and directors in the history of American motion pictures. Marc Eliot examines the ever-exciting, often tumultuous arc of Eastwood's life and career, from his days as a disaffected college dropout, to his rise to fame as the archetypal loner, to his acceptance into the pantheon of the Academy as a multiple Oscar Award winner.

    Elaine says: "Embarrassment"
    "I learned the hard way."
    Overall

    Biographies are much better if the author personally knows the person he is writing about. This books' author does not seem to know Clint Eastwood and has just written accounts from other people. He also repeatedly does a terrible Clint Eastwood impersonation when quoting him. Save your $$$.

    Story

    Millions of people around the world know Chuck Norris as the star of more than 20 motion pictures, including Delta Force, Missing in Action, and Return of the Dragon. Millions more know him as a martial arts expert, the only man in the Western Hemisphere to hold an 8th degree Black Belt Grand Master in Tae Kwon Do. And then there are others who know him from his eight seasons on CBS's longest running series, Walker, Texas Ranger.

    Fjolnir says: "Not bad"
    "It was ok."
    Overall

    Although Chuck is legit, he didn't lead an overly exciting life. It didn't always keep my attention. The book would have been better if read by Chuck himself.

    Story

    Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the best-selling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year.

    Stephen says: "A Must Read For All Men"
    "Grabbed my attention and didn't let go."
    Overall

    This book really opened my eyes not only the the Pick-up-Artist subculture, but to many aspects of social psychology. It has spawned several new interests in my life. Regardless of how deep you read into it, this was an entertaining book.
