  • The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court

    From the moment John Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath of Office at Barack Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, charismatic, charming, determined to change the course of the nation - and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. One is radical; one essentially conservative. The surprise is that Obama is the conservative.

    "Good listen, not great, but good."

    Yes if they're into politics.

  • Making Rumours: The Inside Story of the Classic Fleetwood Mac Album

    Fleetwood Mac's classic 1977 Rumours album topped the Billboard 200 for 31 weeks and won the Album of the Year Grammy. More recently, Rolling Stone named it the 25th greatest album of all time and the hit TV series Glee devoted an entire episode to songs from Rumours, introducing it to a new generation. Now, for the first time, Ken Caillat, the album's co-producer, tells the full story of what really went into making Rumours.

    Story

    I'd highly recommend this for....1-anyone in music production or songwriting it's a very enlightening story about one of the greatest albums ever made. 2- any Fleetwood Mac fanatics. I wish Ken had been a little more specific on the model number of the mics, outboard gear and stuff (I know that would have been useless info for most folks, but not me!), but it is a great story.....Plenty of sex, drugs....and some rock and roll!

    In The Center Holds: Obama and His Enemies, Jonathan Alter uses his unmatched access and deep knowledge of politics and history to produce the first full account of America at the crossroads. He pierces the bubble of the White House and of the presidential campaigns with exclusive reporting and rare historical insight. More than a campaign book, this is the epic story of an embattled president facing a historic moment he considered more pivotal than 2008.

    R.E.M.'s debut album, released in 1983, was so far removed from the prevailing trends of American popular music that it still sounds miraculous and out of time today. J. Niimi tells the story of the album's genesis - with fascinating input from Don Dixon and Mitch Easter. He also investigates Michael Stipe's hypnotic, mysterious lyrics, and makes the case for Murmur as a work of Southern Gothic art.

    Ben says: "Pretentious horse sh-t"
    "A must for all REM fans and, or, recording geeks."

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"

    Geoff Emerick was only 15 years old when he began working with the Beatles as assistant engineer for their early classics "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You". Incredibly, at the age of 19, he was promoted to full engineer, taking the helm for the group's groundbreaking album Revolver. Ten months later, he joined forces with the Beatles for the recording of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, hailed by Rolling Stone as the greatest album ever made.

    Sandi says: "A Must For Any Beatles Fan"
    "Really, really good book!"
    Overall

    It may not be for general audience. But for anyone who has done some recording this is a mind blowing book!

    They began as close allies and friends of FDR, but the quest to shape a new Constitution led them to competition and sometimes outright warfare. Scorpions tells the story of four great justices: their relationship with Roosevelt, with each other, and with the turbulent world of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. It also serves as a history of the modern Constitution itself.

    Charles M. Wyzanski says: "Narrated as admirably as it is written!"
    "Highly reccomended!"
    Overall

    I admit to being a bit of a Con Law obsessive. So, this is right down my ally, but I think it has a much broader appeal!

    Nothing to Fear brings to life a fulcrum moment in American history - the tense, feverish first 100 days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidency, when he and his inner circle completely reinvented the role of the federal government.

    R.S. says: "Important contribution"
    "Wow this is a great book!"
    Overall

    Written as a narrative, this is very easy to listen to. This is one of my top 5 audio books! Highly recommended.
