  • Pistol: The Life of Pete Maravich

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 16 mins)

    Pistol is more than the biography of a ballplayer. It's the stuff of classic novels: the story of a boy transformed by his father's dream and the cost of that dream. Even as Pete Maravich became Pistol Pete, a basketball icon for baby boomers, all the Maraviches paid a price. Now acclaimed author Mark Kriegel has brilliantly captured the saga of an American family: its rise, its apparent ruin, and, finally, its redemption.

    steve says: "Extremely Good!"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    This was an incredibly boring book. As others have indicated, it takes a long time for the writer to actually talk about Pete since the first chapters are about his dad. I understand this was done for a foundation, but it was about 3 chapters too long.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Just what should be expected from Dan Brown"
    Overall

    This is just as entertaining as Dan Brown's other books. The scenario is typical of his writing.

    The story of the young sociologist who studied a Chicago crack-dealing gang from the inside captured the world's attention when it was first described in Freakonomics. Gang Leader for a Day is the fascinating full story of how Sudhir Venkatest managed to gain entree into the gang, what he learned, and how his method revolutionized the academic establishment.

    DanO says: "Listen to this one first"
    "outstanding"
    Overall

    This was much more interesting than my dissertation research! I was sad when I had finished it as it had been perfect listening while walking.
    The author's reports on his experiences while getting to know the entire community impacted by the gang made me wonder what is happening with these people now.
