    In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for numerous historic and controversial decisions.

    Shirley says: "straight forward"
    "Classic "W""
    Overall

    Brought some long sought explanations for the decisions he made, and the back story behind them. I'll admit, I was a fan of George Bush, but questioned some of his reasoning (still do). But to here his side of it put a lot of it into perspective.

    A modern master of the historical novel, Jeff Shaara has painted brilliant depictions of the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, and World War I. Now he embarks upon his most ambitious epic, a trilogy about the military conflict that defined the 20th century. The Rising Tide begins a staggering work of fiction bound to be a new generation's most poignant chronicle of World War II.

    Story
    (123)

    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    michael says: "You can like this book without being a Republican."
    "A good read for both sides"
    Overall

    This is a good book for the platform of an up coming Presidential candidate. No matter what side your on this is a good read and sound advice on a large scale (economic,trade,healthcare), but should be taken with a grain of salt on social issues.

    After 30 years and with three million copies in print, Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War classic, The Killer Angels, remains as vivid and powerful as the day it was originally published.

    Gene says: "Almost a Perfect Audiobook"
    "Best book I've listened to"
    Overall

    I have listened to several books, this is the best I've heard. The articulation in the narrators voice, and the use of different voices for each character was amazing. I even shed a tear at one point. It really put a human touch on 150 yr old history. Loved it.

  • His Excellency: George Washington

    Acclaimed author Joseph J. Ellis penned the National Book Award-winning American Sphinx and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Founding Brothers, a fixture on The New York Times best seller list for an entire year, and one of the most popular history books of all time. Now this master historian turns his attention to the most exalted American hero, Founding Father and first President George Washington.

    Gerard says: "Distracted By Narrator"
    "Great read, lousy narration"
    Overall

    I had read this book a few years back and loved it. The narration is terrible, slow reading, pregnant pauses that could produce triplets,time could be cut down by 30% with proper editing. However I still rated it high because I do love the book it self.

    "Timely and timeless advice"
    Overall

    I have read this book complete on two occasions and have referred to it on numerous other occasions, but to hear it for the first time brought a whole new level of conceptualism to my mind. Even my wife has found it useful in raising our children.
