    Over the past four years, President Barack Obama has systematically undermined every pillar of America’s strength and vitality from the economy to health care to immigration to energy policy to personal liberty. With a bloated federal bureaucracy, staggering national debt, crippling unemployment, a crushing burden of regulation and red tape for private business and entrepreneurs, zealous pursuit of far-left pet projects, and attacks on every Constitutional freedom imaginable, Obama has brought America to the brink of disaster.

    This writer left me with the feeling he is very much on the side of the elite wealthy...I was glad it had so much information about Obama care....... but this writer lost credibility with me and I don't know what to believe and what not to believe.

    Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles. Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world’s wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail. In search of a solution, journalist Matt Taibbi discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends - growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration - come together, driven by a dramatic shift in American citizenship: Our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Divide to be better than the print version?

    Definitely... This narrator make ANY book better than the printed version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The very best writer paired with the very best narrator .. there is no way not to love this book.


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He always does... But he outdid himself with this book...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of the hedge hogs.. oh yeah.. hedge fund managers.. trying to take down and break an insurance company... so they could make a profit on their huge stock bet.


    Any additional comments?

    It'll definitely gives you a different perspective ... You'll remember that the banker hogs and wall street thugs stole .. probably 10 times as much money... than all the poor have been given with welfare and food stamps ..And then when you hear the the Tea Partyers angry that the no-good, lazy, poor people got some help.. while they totally ignore and never saying a word about the trillions stolen by the banker and wall street gluttons....you'll realize the Tea Party is being led by their own enemy.. to their own destruction.

    The financial crisis that exploded in 2008 isn’t past but prologue. The stunning rise, fall, and rescue of Wall Street in the bubble-and-bailout era was the coming-out party for the network of looters who sit at the nexus of American political and economic power. The grifter class - made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding - has been growing in power for a generation.

    If you could sum up Griftopia in three words, what would they be?

    The real truth ... not on TV.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The very best political writer + a very good narrator... I didn't know what the Tea Party was. I didn't know what Obama care was ...not really...
    This book gave me some clues as to what those things are....
    I've been through about 12 or so books on politics...I haven't been reading commentators ... I've been reading great authors.... I've tried to read both sides... Gosh is sad Republicans .and people in government have no defense for their horrible behaviors ( murder and robbery).....Geitner tried, and failed with his book.. Anyway, Griftopea finally has driven home all I need to know and in a way I'll remember... Still, I'll probably listen to this one many times... That says a lot for the book ..because I never listen to books more than once...


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Egan – was your favorite?

    Yes, he's the best of the best political writers.


    If you could give Griftopia a new subtitle, what would it be?

    No.. The narrator was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think the majority of the population know what was done and what is being done in America.. The only have the time and energy to watch TV.... Who knows how long it'll be that we'll be allowed to read books like this.. Before long Amazon will dictate what is allowed to be published and how it is marketed...and so not only will the media and the internet be censored...so will books...

    Would you try another book from Colleen Hoover and/or Angela Goethals?

    I really liked the narrator. I and I really liked the ending of the book..


    Would you be willing to try another book from Colleen Hoover? Why or why not?

    Maybe...., because the ending of the book was great.. and she has a way of building the story that's good. But I got so tired of all the kissing, kissing, kissing the characters did.. I got kind of nauseous with all that kissing. Ugh. If I'm going to read stuff like that ...it's got to be better than that.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Goethals’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't know...don't think I've heard her before. She very good.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    When the witness was caught telling a lie... and you thought is was all over...


    What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

    Great voice... read the book well... I felt like I was listening to a lawyer tell a story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Who would leave $24 million to the maid.

    Sheldon Wolin considers the unthinkable: has America unwittingly morphed into a new and strange kind of political hybrid, one where economic and state powers are conjoined and virtually unbridled? Can the nation check its descent into what the author terms "inverted totalitarianism"? Wolin portrays a country where citizens are politically uninterested and submissive - and where elites are eager to keep them that way.

    Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world....

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so disappointed in Al Gore.... He's stopped being for the people... I guess having the presidential election STOLEN by an unqualified, lesser man, was just too much. At least he wrote a fantastic book, "The Assault on Reason" before he quit. I keep hoping he'll join someone like Ralph Nader and come back and save us all from the horrible mess we're in ... with our freedom, privacy, human rights, health and our security being stollen from us by telecommunication-cell phone-smart meter nuts, Monsanto, Bankers and Wall Street.. "The Future" makes me think Al Gore has decided to join the monsters listed above.

Seeds are at the heart of the planet's life-support systems. Their power to regenerate and adapt are essential to maintaining our food supply, our resistance to disease, and our ability to cope with a changing climate.

Have you ever taken a course on a subject you thought you knew something about ...only to find out you had just scratched the surface on your own and only thought you knew about it...... Well, that's the difference between researching on your own and listening to this fantastic book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Uncertain Peril?

    Third world nations being a victimized.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES...but couldn't because I kept repeating what I'd listened to because it was so beautifully written. In fact...I still haven't finished it.. I want to remember every word.

    Devra Davis presents a range of recent and long-suppressed research in this timely bombshell. Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain's defenses, and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer. The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable. And half of the world's four billion cell phone users are under 20.

    I love this book. The health effects of RF EMF wireless transmitters should be known by everyone. It is proven that the technology used in cell phones and smart meters alters glucose functions in living cells and probably can affect protein folding as well as DNA replication. RF Electromagnetic fields alters the electric activity of the cell in neurons. Lawyers and politicians and engineers should not be making the decisions about cell phones nor should they be allowed to force smart meters on the American people. The vast majority of people don’t know about the effects of cell phones and smart meters and they need to be informed. The book doesn't go into a lot of electrobiology nor does it mention smart meters. But it gives plenty of great information. This book is beautifully written, very informative and you don’t need to be biology major to enjoy it. And this is one case where the author is a masterful reader. Again, I love this book. I can't say enough about it.
