    Story
    (157)

    In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.

    Mike & Jan Geihsler says: "Needed unabridged"
    "Brilliant Read"
    Overall

    This narration is excellent. After this abridged version, you may want the full text.

    Unfortunately, most of the anonymous "helpful" or "not helpful" clicks are obviously from folks who haven't read or listened to this book. This is reflected in the 4.5 star rankings and thoughtful reviews, compared to the lopsided "was this helpful" number. Why do you think "these" people want to shut Sarah down? GO ROGUE, and see !!

  • The Low-Carb Fraud

    By now, the low-carb diet's refrain is a familiar one: "Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn't matter. Carbs are the real reason you can't lose weight. In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how the low-carb proponents get it wrong: Where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as "carbs" aren't all created equal, and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Be careful when you see the word Fraud. I am a physician, and suggest the interested reader listen to both sides of this question. This PhD author seems somewhat jealous of his peer group, and even perpetuates the myth (from the "vegetarians") that Dr. Atkins died from low-carb diet consequences. (Dr. Atkins was 6 ft., 195 lbs when he suffered from a head injury. He died bloated, with organ failure, in a coma.) This author also clings to the "cholesterol is the problem", soon to be arcane. There is valuable information here, but only if tempered with some outside information. (Fat comes from carbs, not from fat.)


    Would you ever listen to anything by T. Colin Campbell again?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Every decade, we learn the new truth. I suspect we are not finished yet. iDoc

  • Atlas Shrugged , Volume 1

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Ayn Rand
    • Narrated By Christopher Hurt

    (136)

    Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who have never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Valerie says: "An excellent listen, despite its length."
    "Breadth and depth - timeless !"
    Overall

    I first read Atlas Shrugged more than 30 years ago, before college and post-grad school. I was fascinated by Ayn Rand's ability to depict the social and political temperament of the capitalistic world, and further impressed knowing Ayn arrived in America from Russia, not speaking English. I have re-read Atlas Shrugged many times over the years, and have recently listened to the Audible book presentation. I am never disappointed. Many of Ayn Rand's scenarios were prophetic; more so as the years go by. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
