    Story
    (54)

    For more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. Our leaders have shown themselves willing, as in the Cuban missile crisis, to follow the dream of dominance no matter how high the risks. Now the Bush administration is intensifying this process, driving us toward the final frontiers of imperial control, toward a choice between the prerogatives of power and a livable Earth.

    Jazz Listener says: "Great book, lousy reader"
    "I love Noam Chomsky..."
    Overall

    ...but!
    I have read other of Chomsky's books and seen a documentary of his and I really like his work!!! That being said I think the book was read too fast and I think the content was a bit scattered. Maybe the book is easier to follow when you see everything in print. I don't want to discourage anyone from learning more about this very important and interesting material.

    Story

    One of the most extraordinary survival stories ever told, Aron Ralston's searing account of his six days trapped in one of the most remote spots in America, and how one inspired act of bravery brought him home.

    Tim says: "Stunning and Emotional"
    "Job or Climbing?"
    Overall

    Job or Climbing? That was one of the tough choices that Aron had to make in his life. The fact that he chose Climbing really makes me admire him and his lifestyle. Not to mention the powerful story about the in-your-face struggle between life and death. Aron reading his own story really gives feeling to the audio book. I recommend this book for everyone even if they are not an outdoor buff.
