    A true story as exhilarating as a great spy thriller, as turbulent as today's headlines from the Middle East, A Time to Betray reveals what no other previous CIA operative's memoir possibly could: the inner workings of the notorious Revolutionary Guards of Iran, as witnessed by an Iranian man inside their ranks who spied for the American government.

    Walter says: "Absorbing throughout. Questionable at times."

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    This is the breathtaking adventure of the great Carthaginian general who shook the foundations of Rome. In the world's first "global" conflict, Hannibal Barca marched up and down the Italian peninsula for 18 years, appearing well nigh invincible to a Rome which began to doubt itself for the first time in its history.

    Story

    I really loved this book. I did not know too much detail about the invasion of Hannibal and enjoyed hearing the details of the second Punic war. The performance was superb and the story was great. I took off one star for one historical inaccuracy that did sit in my craw. The author refers to Hannibal taking refuge with Antiochius III and describing that the coming battle with the Romans was unlike other warfare the Selucids engaged in. He mentions in passing the conflict in "Palestine". First of all, Antiochus III had excellent relations with his Jewish subjects in occupied Judea. The conflict, which is commemorated by the Jewish holiday of Hannukah, was with his son Antiochus IV. Secondly, there was no "Palestine", as this made up name was given to Judea by the Romans after the revolt in 60 C.E., some 300 years later. There never really was a country called "Palestine" in history, but the territory was referred to by that name after 63 C.E. Let's be historically accurate on this point, please!

    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.

    What did you love best about Killing Kennedy?

    Whatever you may feel about Bill O'Reilly, put aside your politics and read this book. It is a factual reading of what happens with an extensive background of the Kennedy Presidency and the events leading up to the assassination. Mr. O'Reilly avoids all the conspiracy theories and does give the whacky ones any thought whatsoever. He mentions all of them in passing and sticks to only verifiable facts. It feels like a news report but done the way it used to be: factual, unbiased, and straightforward. All of this serves to bring home the tragedy even more, I almost cried as he described, step by step, the actual assassination itself.


    What other book might you compare Killing Kennedy to and why?

    After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Indians of the Americas has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Indians to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book. The history is fascinating as are the historical connections made. I think sometimes these connections are stretched a bit too much to make the point, but the underlying concepts are sound. I learned a lot from this book.
