    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    His name was Joshua Silver. He was 23 years old, educated, and had an impressive vocabulary. The NYPD had found Joshua Silver naked in Times Square, barking like a dog.It was just another night for Julie Holland, the attending doctor in the world famous Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric emergency room.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Weekends at Bellevue to be better than the print version?

    A+ When I am both entertained and educated by a book I find myself wishing, about half way through, that it will never end.
    There are so many lessons to be learned for those who are willing; both inside and outside of the hospital environment.
    Thanks to Julie Holland for writing this book. I wish she were my friend.


    What other book might you compare Weekends at Bellevue to and why?

    .not sure yet


    What about Julie Holland’s performance did you like?

    I am pleased with her performance. I think she honestly presents her strengths and weaknesses and her growth.


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

    So far there have been many moments. I ,also, worked in a psychiatric hospital for ten years and I found her stories to be believable and touching.
    As I have not yet finished listening I will add more later.


    Any additional comments?

    Many of the failures of the mental health system are portrayed in this book, What has changed? We can do better that we are doing .... much better.

    As we approach the most important presidential election in America’s history, something has been lost among all of the debates, attack ads, and super- PACs - something that Americans used to hold in very high regard: THE TRUTH. The truth can no longer be something we hope for; it must be something we live. When courage prevails, cowards do not - and this book was written to ensure that’s exactly what happens.

    Story

    Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

    Larry says: "Very insightful!"
    "Knowing Andrew Breitbart- better late than never"

    Where does Righteous Indignation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top. The book is brilliant and the narrator was perfect. I could listen to it over and over. Will always be a favorite.


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

    Not yet, but I surely will.


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

    Parting Wisdom of a Proud Warrior
