    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Larry says: "What a great book."

    Would you listen to Helter Skelter again? Why?

    No. I just don't do that. There are too many other books to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    One of my top five books so far.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

  • Scar Tissue

    Story
    (207)

    As lead singer and songwriter for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis has lived life on the razor's edge. Much has been written about him, but until now we've only had his songs as clues to his experience from the inside. In Scar Tissue, Kiedis proves himself to be as compelling a memoirist as he is a lyricist, giving us a searingly honest account of the life from which his music has evolved.

    Nicole says: "Up Close and Personal with Anthony Kiedis"
    "Horrible kiss and tell story !"

    Would you try another book from Anthony Kiedis and Larry Sloman and/or Rider Strong?

    No way.


    What could Anthony Kiedis and Larry Sloman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was only a sad kiss and tell story sprinkled with depressing drug abuse ramblings.


    What didn’t you like about Rider Strong’s performance?

    Dull


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointing beyond belief !


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to alot of books and this was probably the worst, bar none.
