    From Robert B. Reich, passionate believer in American democracy and public servant, Reason is a guide to confronting and derailing what he sees as the mounting threat to American liberty, prosperity, and security posed by the radical conservatives, Radcons as he calls them.

    Ron says: "Reason"
    "Good Common Sense"
    Overall

    Very sensible and well produced examination and evaluation of our current situation in politics. Anyone who wants to learn both sides of the picture should listen to this one.

    The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

    Well researched of what we are about and what we do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thinking, Fast and Slow?

    That we are obstinate in our answers intuitively and refuse often to accept the facts.

    Over the years, as Warren Buffett's influence and affluence have grown, one thing has remained the same - his unpretentious, honest, and optimistic approach toward business and life. Now you can discover life's little secrets of success as revealed by the world┬┐s greatest investor.

    morton says: "A Great Listen!"
    "Disappointment"
    Overall

    Didn't expect any secrets. Author keeps alluding to how he is outling the book and then goes off on a tangent. If you are interested in Buffett quotations, there are plenty. Lots of big financial figures thrown around if you are interested. Guess I didn't know what my expectations were so I can't complain about that.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Claudia says: "excellent"
    "Great feeling of history"
    Overall

    Follett demonstrates his distinct ability to take you back to a time where you have the enjoyment of living the period as if you are a part of it.

    Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet, a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle. Yet all their skills may not be enough when a deadly new opponent rips off the veneer of Stone's own mysterious past.

    A User says: "Stone Cold"
    "Double Dose of Intrigue"

    Like two intrigue novels interwoven into one - the past and now. Enjoyable read.

    Stone Barrington hasn't heard from his cousin, Dick Stone, in years, though he has fond memories of a teenage summer spent at his house in Maine. But then the CIA's Lance Cabot interrupts an otherwise pleasant meal at Elaine's with the news of Dick's death, apparently by his own hand. It seems that Dick Stone, a quiet family man who doubled as a CIA agent, methodically executed his wife, daughter, and then himself...or did he?

    B. Lingerfelt says: "As always with Woods, it's more the journey"
    "Engaging"
    Overall

    Intriguing but somewhat predictable.

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    Patrick says: "Facinating, Scary and Repetitive"
    "The future of business"
    Overall

    Friedman has done an excellent job of researching the leveling of the playing field through the economic phenomenon of very cheap telecommunications throughout the world tying our economies closer together and allowing for cost reduction through exporting jobs that can be done faster, better and cheaper by others. This is reported by a reporter, factual and describes accurately the future of businesses that can export functions. A little Gee whiz, but good information.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Good mystery"
    Overall

    Most enjoyable and informative from the author's view of how the dysfuntion of the crimial justice system can be exploited today. Most enjoyable and realistic mystery with many surprises.

    The dizzying exuberance of the Internet-driven marketplace offers unprecedented opportunities and an ever-expanding choice of products and jobs. This is a boon to us as consumers, but it's wreaking havoc in the rest of our lives. Using examples from everyday life, Reich delineates what success is coming to mean in our time and suggests how we might create a more balanced society and more satisfying lives.

    Kenneth says: "What you knew, but hadn’t articulated"
    "Insightful View of Our Economy and Future"
    Overall

    The book is full of information presented in a logical and clear manner considering the broad extents of knowledge that is presented. The book is exceptional and a great listen.
