    Story

    Che Guevara was a dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Jon Lee Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle.

    Matthew says: "Encompassing and Fair Look at an Historical Man"
    "An excellent book"
    Overall

    Extremely well written book. The author has done a great job extracting all the important details of the life of this revolutionary and creating an amazing biography. Listening to this book was like stepping back in time and observing the historical events that took place. I just loved it.

    You know that your mind influences your health-but what's influencing your mind? Unless you answer this question, teaches Dr. Mario Martinez, you may be missing a key component on the journey to health and personal excellence. On The Mind-Body Code, the founder of Biocognitive Theory presents his first audio curriculum about the dynamic interplay between our thoughts, our bodies and our cultural history-and how to unlock this powerful doorway to wellness and fulfillment.

    This book is fantastic. A theory of psychology and mind-body connection supported by scientific research. I have done the exercises many times and it's amazing what I have discovered about myself. I am sure this book will bring health to many.

  • The Modern Scholar: Cold War: On the Brink of Apocalypse

    Story

    The devastating US atomic bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki not only brought World War II to an end, but effectively gave birth to the Cold War. The postwar world would thereafter be marked by the fragile relationship of two superpowers with opposing ideologies: the United States and the Soviet Union.

    Stephen says: "Decent history until the 80's"
    "Not a scholarly book"
    Overall

    I was extremely disappointed with this book. I thought it would be a historic book about the cold war but it was rather an American perspective on it. The professor discusses in detail throughout the book about how America struggled to gain power and what were the circumstances in America at the time. He also talked extensively about America's superiority to the Russians and gave a lot of excuses about the crimes committed by America to maintain it's status and prestige at the time. Knowing all too well what happened in some of those cases this book seemed to be more of a propaganda book than anything else.
    I would have rather listened to a more neutral perspective about all the countries involved and their struggle as well. Sorry but I don't think this book is worth the money at all.
