    Story
    (186)

    With the same directness that defined his career in public service, Donald Rumsfeld's memoir is filled with previously undisclosed details and insights about the Bush administration, 9/11, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It also features Rumsfeld's unique and often surprising observations on eight decades of history.

    "Inside view of five decades in politics"
    Overall

    Rumsfeld is such a polarizing figure in American politics, that I know it will be tempting for some to rate this book on whether they agree or disagree with his views. Set that aside. Whether one agrees or disagrees, it's simply a riveting look at the world of politics from an insider's point of view. Rumsfeld does a great job of reading his own material, so much so that it really feels more like listening to a storyteller in the old fashioned sense. Enjoyed it tremendously.

    Story
    (16)

    First published in monthly parts between October 1846 and April 1848, it tells the story of Paul Dombey a heartless London merchant who runs his domestic affairs as he runs his business. In his daily life there is no room for dealing with emotions because emotion has no market value. In his son he sees the future of his firm and the continuation of his name, while he neglects his affectionate daughter, until he decides to get rid of her beloved, a lowly clerk.

    Mary says: "good story, poor recording"
    "Not really "unadbridged""
    Overall

    Beautiful reading, but for some reason he skips paragraphs and sentences here and there. I'm only in chapter three, but there he skipped an entire page. This title is labeled "unabridged" and at 41 hours you'd think it would be, but it's not. Just thought you'd like to know.
