  • You're Good Enough, You're Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like You!

    From Stuart Smalley come calming visualizations that will take you to a safe and healing place...except for a few wrong turns along the way. Al Franken brought Stuart Smalley to prominence on Saturday Night Live, and although Stuart's not perfect (and that's okay), he offers a healing journey through the Dysfunctional Forest and other guided visualizations.

    I laughed my head off. And made the mistake of trying to listen to a meditation audiobook later on. I could not stop laughing. Franken has hit the nail on the head here.

    For those who don't like his politics... forget that stuff, this is just a good time with his Stuart Smalley character. I liked how he worked the audio presentation into the presentation. It wasn't just Franken reading from his book.

  • The Peloponnesian War, Volume 1

    Story

    Historians universally agree that Thucydides was the greatest historian who has ever lived, and that his story of the Peloponnesian conflict is a marvel of forensic science and fine literature. That such an historical work would be simultaneously acknowledged as a work of great literature and a penetrating ethical evaluation of humanity is one of the miracles of ancient history.

    Michael says: "Come prepared"
    "historical history"
    Overall

    A history written long ago that is history itself. Can't get much more historical than that.

    If you focus on the bigger picture of what is happening and not bother to try to remember all the names or who they are sons of then it is pretty easy to follow, even when driving in heavy traffic in bad weather. Listening to this you get an idea of the different dynamics of the various city-states and the details on the war. Highly recommended for folks who like ancient history.

    There has never been another writer quite like Douglas Adams; witty, funny and brilliantly eloquent on a gargantuan number of topics. The Salmon of Doubt brims with the Adams trademarks: thought-provoking, silly and insanely original writings in an all-new never-before-published collection. For the millions of readers who expressed their grief and shock at his untimely death, this is it: his final book and our last chance to see new work from an acknowledged comic genius of our time.

    Carla says: "Last Chance to Read.."
    "a bio and a (partial) novel"
    Overall

    An excellent collection of Adams writings, speeches and the unfinished final novel. This book really does a great job capturing the man behind the lunacy. A highly recommended book!
