    National radio talk show host Mike Gallagher provides a careful study into the psyche of the liberal mind, using humor and irony to both entertain and instruct. A recent Gallup/USA Today Poll (not exactly Fox News Channel) revealed that 42 percent of Americans called themselves conservative, 35 percent moderate, while only 20 percent used the "L" word to describe themselves. Mike Gallagher uses his trademark humor to take the listener inside the life and mind of the American liberal, coming up with 50 definitive things liberals just love to hate.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

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

    I put Killing Kennedy up there with Killing Lincoln loved both books, Both of these books grab your attention and you just do not want to put it down and I didn't.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Kennedy?

    The way this book is laid out that it was really cool to get the interaction between, Jack, Jackie, Bobby, LBJ and the others. The actual point where JFK is shot in Dallas was a dramatic point.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    Bill O'Reilly's performance is remarkable and makes the book that much more enjoyable.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was broken hearted that JFK was shot and that because the FBI screwed up we lost the President of the United States, It was a very sad day for America. It really broke my heart.


    Any additional comments?

    Just wish Bill had spent a little more time at the end going over JFK's buriel at Arlington National Cemetery. Just something to think about. for the paper back edition of the book.

    After President Dwight D. Eisenhower left office in 1961, he retired to a farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Living next door was his teenage grandson, David; they would be neighbors for the rest of the decade. Based on personal stories, letters, diaries, and the reminiscences of Eisenhower’s closest friends, Going Home to Glory is both an intimate chronicle of the elder statesman’s final years and a coming of age story.

    What made the experience of listening to Going Home to Glory the most enjoyable?

    I am a great lover of American History. I have listened to the full audio book several times since it came out and relistening to it now. Listening to this book has given me a great appreciation for


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Going Home to Glory?

    The way the General interacts with others, from his family, the Presidents and members of Congress. Everyone was treated with such great respect. That Ike and Mamie were from a generation that understood that it took hard work and sacrifice to make a better life for your children and grandchildren. That America is the Last Best Hope for the world.


    What about Arthur Morey’s performance did you like?

    Arthur Morey made the experience of this book very enjoyable. He did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the book transitioned to the time when the General knew he would never come back to Eisenhower Farm in Gettysburg, Pa. Wow, the human emotion of it all. The General showed that he was a father, grandfather, President, General and most importantly husband to Mamie.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book to all history buffs. Only one statement I can say....Wow. Learned stuff I never even realized that President and General Eisenhower did for the country he loved. Would make a great Christmas or Birthday gift for the reader in your life.

    The whole world can change in 20 years - and it did. Where is America going? Just look at the decades between 1988 and 2008. As America collectively exhaled at the end of the Cold War, we loosened our grip on the fear of nuclear confrontation for the first time since WWII. Some scholars even characterized teh collapse of the Soviet Union as the end of history itself. Peace was palpable.

    This was the third book that I selected from my Audible membership and it was well worth the investment. I recommend the book as part of a full home schooling agenda. It is a great history resource as part of the whole set. Dr. William J. Bennett knows how to put together a complete and true picture of our American History. This book runs from the begining of Bush 41 to the end of Bush 43 and touches on BHO.

    The second volume of Bennett's overview of U.S. history begins with the events leading up to WWI, tracing the progress of the U.S. through the end of Reagan's presidency. Bennett has a long history of government service - he was Secretary of Education under Ronald Reagan and Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under George H.W. Bush - and the overall tone of the book reflects the deep respect he holds for America's leaders, history and institutions.
