    Drawn from the work of StoryCorps, the largest and most ambitious private oral history project in American history, comes this tapestry of the stories Americans have been sharing from their lives to leave behind to their loved ones.

    Rudolf Reder was the only postwar survivor of Belzec, an infamous Nazi death camp where 700,000 Jews were killed in a few short months. David Suchet reads Mr. Reder's little-known but remarkable and shocking firsthand account of how the SS organised death on an industrial and inhuman scale. Mark Forstater provides an introduction to the audio and adds a personal memoir of his own family, and how he discovered Mr. Reder's witness statement.

    This is a great first hand account of the horrible things that happened in this unimaginable time in history. A good read for any person interested in WWII.

    Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest and most controversial videogame franchises of all time. Since its first release in 1997, GTA has pioneered the use of everything from 3D graphics to the voices of top Hollywood actors and repeatedly transformed the world of gaming. Despite its incredible innovations in the $75 billion game industry, it has also been a lightning rod of debate, spawning accusations of ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorizing violence, and inciting real-life crimes.

    Story

    If you are a gamer this is a really cool look into one of the biggest game company in the industry. It is a great inside the company through its birth up to today. It is well paced and Adam Verner does a great job narrating it. If your not a gamer it is still a good listen into a company going from a couple of guys into a multi-million dollar company. The story of how money and fame can take its toll and change people.

    The same author wrote Master's of Doom. If you loved one you'll love the other. Highly recommend both.

    In this gripping memoir by the chief American interpreter at the Nuremberg trials, Richard Sonnenfeldt recounts a remarkable life. By age 22 he had fought in the Battle of the Bulge and helped liberate the Dachau concentration camp, when he was appointed chief interpreter for the American prosecution of Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials.

    During his service, he spent pretrial time with Hermann Göering as well as other top Nazi leaders.

    This book is about the man and not so much the trials. I was really hoping to learn about these trials. This is not the book for that.

    This unique poetic translation by Herbert A. Kenny, historian and poet, is the first that incorporates the Biblical, theological and historical allusions of the greatest poem im Christendom into the text itself. It can now be appreciated without a glossary or accompanying notes. Listen as the liquid lines take you through the horrors of the "Inferno", the mysteries of "Purgatorio" and the glories of "Paradiso".

    Story

    This book is great but can be hard to understand at times.The style it is written in and translated can be kind of hard to comprehend at first. It also helps a lot the more you know of the bible, Italian history and Greek mythology. I really really enjoy this/these books and the audio one is really well done. The Narrator does a good job with pace with the different style of writing that the book was written.

    Masters of Doom is the amazing true story of the Lennon and McCartney of video games: John Carmack and John Romero. Together, they ruled big business. They transformed popular culture. And they provoked a national controversy. More than anything, they lived a unique and rollicking American Dream, escaping the broken homes of their youth to produce the most notoriously successful game franchises in history - Doom and Quake - until the games they made tore them apart. This is a story of friendship and betrayal, commerce and artistry.

    It is amazing what 2 men could/did for an entire industry and pop culture. Having known bits and pieces of the story before this brings it all together and at a great pace. A must for gamers wanting to understand where and how this came to pass.
