    When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize, but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Or is it?

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

    Quite high


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jaya?

    When the queen is protecting the cut up bodies of her sons on the battle field and is told by Krishna to go home but she stays and is suddenly driven crazy by the smell of a mangoe and unknowingly stacks the heads of her sons to climb them and get the mangoe and when she is finished she realizes the horror of what her need to eat a mangoe has driven her to do.


    What does Devdutt Pattanaik and Dramanon Theater bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Multiple layers and keeps the story away from becoming monotonous.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well I want to learn from books like this and I always listen to it again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is for people that like learning but also want to be intrigued and moved.I am a history fan so for me books like this are food for my brain.

    In Search of Bill Clinton unravels the mystery at the heart of Clinton's complex nature and explains why so many people fall under his spell. Gartner tells the story we all thought we knew, from the fresh viewpoint of a psychologist, as he questions the well-crafted Clinton life story. Gartner, a therapist with expertise in treating individuals with hypomanic temperaments, saw in Clinton the energy, creativity, and charisma that leads a hypomanic individual to success as well as the problems with impulse control and judgment.

    "A look into the brilliant mind of Clinton."

    Any additional comments?

    I have always found brilliant minds to be the most intriguing phenomenon.I have always been a huge Clinton fan on every level and want to know what makes him,Him.He is fantastic,humble,courageous,confident,extremely impressive,inspiring and makes bridges into the hearts of people.The only other president that is at par with him is Abraham Lincoln.American presidency has four giants naming them chronologically Abraham Lincoln ,Franklin D rosevelt,John .F.kennedy and Bill Clinton.These people made America what it is and are sorely missed.If I had a magic lamp I would rub it and one of my wishes would be to meet President Bill Clinton and to become his student.
