    The New York Yankees. The Boston Red Sox. For a hundred years, no two teams have locked horns as fiercely or as frequently, and no two seasons frame the colossal battle more perfectly than 2003 and 2004. Now, with incredible energy and access, leading sports columnist Mike Vaccaro chronicles the history of the greatest rivalry in sports, and the two stunning American League Championship Series that define a century of baseball.

    Dan says: "Best rivalry in sports, solid listen (Go Sox!)"
    "Great Book Even If You're Not A Red Sox Fan"
    Overall

    This book was a joy to listen to.

    Story

    With eloquence and beauty, the award-winning author of The Book of the Dun Cow, The Book of God, and Paul: A Novel, turns his pen to history's most compelling figure, Jesus of Nazareth. In vibrant language, Walter Wangerin, Jr. sweeps away centuries of tradition and reveals a man of flesh-and-heart immediacy.

    R says: "The VIVID narration matches the MASTERFUL text"
    "Terrible"
    Overall

    First start out by paraphrasing the New Testiment, and then fill in the gaps with a soap operaish version of what you think happened, seems to be this authors idea for writing about this subject. Maybe had the narrator been somebody different, or if they'd decided to do it with a cast of characters it might have been more palpable.

  • The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew and How Far She'll Go to Become President

    Like it or not, Hillary Clinton is almost assuredly going to run for president in 2008. It doesn't matter that her negative poll numbers are high or that her past 15 years in the public eye have been anything but smooth. Since she was a little girl she has dreamed about becoming the first female president, and now that dream is well within reach.

    John says: "Right down party lines"
    "Tough to be worse than Klein"
    Overall

    Among the many false claims in Klein's book:

    * Klein falsely claims that Hillary Clinton spoke of her Jewish relatives only after controversy arose over her hug of Suha Arafat (Klein reversed the true order of the events).

    * He falsely claims the $25 million Clinton planned in 1999 to raise for her Senate campaign would be an "unprecedented" amount, ignoring the fact that another candidate had raised more than that for a Senate election held the previous year in the very same state.

    * Klein falsely claims that Rick Lazio, Clinton's Republican opponent in 2000 for a New York Senate seat, sent out no direct campaign mail.

    * He falsely claims that Moynihan couldn't bring himself to say Clinton's name in introducing her at her campaign announcement.

    * He falsely accuses Moynihan of giving a long and rambling description of hay-cutting that, in fact, lasted all of 29 words.

    * Klein falsely accuses Clinton of ignoring Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) during a speech to teachers in support of his presidential campaign.

    * He falsely accuses her of not wanting Kerry to win and of spending her time in states such as South Dakota, in which Kerry had very little chance (she hasn't been to South Dakota in years).
