  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 51 mins)

    Story

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Story

    This is one of the best audio programs I have ever heard, from any source. Al Franken's work really is essential for any thinking person - at least any person who is thinking of voting in the upcoming elections. The substance of his presentation is first-rate. Let's face it, Al Franken is a comedian. Yes, he is a very intelligent person, but he's a comedian. However, the quality of his presentation, the thoroughness of his research, the logic and cogency of his arguments, all put this work on a level above the vapid scrawling of his right-wing subjects. Oh, and he's hilarious! This really is funny!
    Furthermore, this program is an audio program, not a mere reading of the book. Franken produced this presentation for audio and he performs the work himself. There is an excellent use of original audio from the Wellstone memorial service that makes his point beautifully. This is a superior presentation than the original book. Even if you don't agree with Franken's politics, you'll find this book entertaining.

    Okay, that's probably not true. You probably won't care for it quite so much if you're fond of those whom he skewers, but give it a try anyway.

    Story

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Jake Williams says: "Altered Carbon"
    "Very Intense, Violent, Adult Sci-Fi"
    Overall

    This is a very good book, but it is NOT Isaac Asimov. It is extremely violent, intense, explicit and contains a lot of language and sex that may be offensive to some. However, it is creative, intelligent and fast-paced. I think the comparison to Sam Spade is the most accurate. I have enjoyed the book and the production and I look forward to the next two installments.
