  • Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions and Hurtful Acts

    Why do people dodge responsibility when things fall apart? Why the parade of public figures unable to own up when they screw up? Why the endless marital quarrels over who is right? Why can we see hypocrisy in others but not in ourselves? Are we all liars? Or do we really believe the stories we tell? Backed by years of research and delivered in lively, energetic prose, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers a fascinating explanation of self-deception.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    What did you love best about Defending Jacob?

    Well written, and well recorded. I like the story that how parents could love their children blindly.

    The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a contemporary spiritual masterpiece and one of the world's most profound sources of sacred inspiration. Sogyal Rinpoche interprets Tibetan Buddhism for Western students, offering new ways to look at life and death. He teaches us to transcend our fear and denial of death, enabling us to discover parts of ourselves that will survive eternally.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The sound is so unclear that I could not get very much. I end up buying this paper book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    RE-record it with clear voice.

    How to Be an American Housewife is a novel about mothers and daughters and the pull of tradition. It tells the story of Shoko, a Japanese woman who married an American GI, and her grown daughter, Sue, a divorced mother whose life as an American housewife hasn't been what she'd expected. When illness prevents Shoko from traveling to Japan, she asks Sue to go in her place. The trip reveals family secrets that change their lives in dramatic and unforeseen ways.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am an immigrant, and hope to learn more about American family culture and marital relationship. This book is too simple to learn much from it. The story is not very interesting to me. I could not continue to read after a few chapters.
