    At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy's change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have and will. To gain a deeper understanding of, not only the assasination, but of the workings of the shadow government to supplant constitutional government, of, by, for the people, with one fashioned and controlled by them to serve their narrow interests at the expense of the national welfare.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Kennedy, because I learned more about his courage and thoughtful plans to disengage from the insanity which threatened at the time and has since become our daily bread. What a different world it might be had he lived to see his plans brought to fruition.


    What does Pete Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm a slow reader because I often have to go back and rephrase something when it hasn't sounded right in my head. Larkin's understanding and familiarity with the material provides that dramatization of the story line in an uninterupted flow effortlessly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Prophiles in usurpation.


    Any additional comments?

    It should be required reading in every high school and test questions on its contents a prerquisite for holding public office. We might get our national integrity back.

  • The Grand Design

    Story

    The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity.

    Brandi says: "Hawking succeeds in mind-blowing physics, real"
    "Clear presentation, understandable to the lay man."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have recommended it to a friend who shares an interest in the advancement of scientific understanding, for the reasons cited in the headline.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The cosmos, because it exceeds Cleopatra in its infinite variety and mysterious allure and secondarily the cleverness of the detectives in following the clues in the most recent chapter, while posing mysteries yet unsolved.


    What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

    I thought it excelent.


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

    If you mean was it sufficently intriguing to want not to put it down, the answer is yes. However the length precluded that and it was equally gratifying to look forward to the remainder.


    Any additional comments?

    I could only wish that Hawkings could accept the intelligent action of a devine being and not be held by the belief that intelligence is a relatively recent development. Eveything about everything makes more sense to me with that belief I hold, that God is and that the ellivated consciousness of man has produced riches in art, literature and thought, seeking harmony with that Being.
