  • The Prince

    The Prince was the first great work of modern political and historical analysis, but it suffered from a tragic flaw: Machiavelli chose as his "hero" Cesare Borgia, the son of Pope Alexander VI, who, unknown to the author, employed murder as one of his tools of statecraft. The Prince has been studied by Hitler, Stalin, Richelieu, Bismarck, and Frederick the Great, among others.

    Patrick says: "Machiavelli, telling it like it is"
    "A timeless classic!"
    Overall

    Together with Sun Tzu's Art of War and Plato's Republic, the Prince is the third view of how Power and Fortune should be handled.

  • Don't Know Much About History: Everything You Need to Know About American History

    • UNABRIDGED (23 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Kenneth C. Davis
    • Narrated By Jeff Wooden

    When Don't Know Much About History first appeared, it created a sensation. With humor, great stories, and a trademark conversational style, the audiobook brought Americans a fresh new take on history. Davis proved that Americans don't hate history - they just hate the dull textbook version they were force-fed in school.

    Tom says: "Great listen. Great information."
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Well done. A must read for anyone willing to hear the facts as well as the "other side's" comments. De-mystifies the "hero" and brings a human perspective to American history.

    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."
    "One of the best book ever written! Period."
    Overall

    The audiobook is beautifully narrated by Bruce Alexander and respects the original ancient Greek version. Plato himself would have been happy by this interpretation.

    Jack Welch lifted GE from a conglomerate with a market value of about $12 billion to one of the world's largest and most widely-admired companies, with a market value of more than $500 billion. In Jack, the author reveals the strategies and philosophies that put him at the top.
