    In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don Roos, found themselves in an L.A. delivery room, decked out in disposable scrubs from shower cap to booties, to welcome their adopted baby girl - launching their frantic yet memorable adventures into fatherhood. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother - a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew - delivered a son into the couple’s arms.

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

    This is the perfect example of having the added pleasure of hearing the author tell his own story. Dan's really dry sense of humor and impeccable comic timing makes this an audio book well worth listening to. There were parts that made me laugh right out loud.

  • Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And All the Brilliant Minds Who Made the Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic

    Mary Tyler Moore made her name as Dick Van Dyke's wife on the eponymous show; she was a cute, unassuming housewife that audiences loved. But when screenwriters James Brooks and Allan Burnes dreamed up an edgy show about a divorced woman with a career, network executives replied: "Americans won't watch television about New York City, divorcées, men with mustaches, or Jews." But Moore and her team were committed, and when the show finally aired, in spite of tepid reviews, fans loved it.

    Would you listen to Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted again? Why?

    Yes, I would definitely listen to some parts again. To hear the background of one of television's most successful series is a real treat to anyone who grew up watching this landmark show. The behind the scenes stories are priceless.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Landon?

    I think I would prefer someone who bothered to read the book ahead of time. Judging from her line readings she frequently didn't seem to know the intent of the sentence. The only time I've ever heard results like that is when someone is doing a cold reading. Also distracting was her mispronunciation of certain names (such as Gavin MacLeod's Love Boat character - Captain Stubing which she pronounced as "STUBBING" as opposed to the familiar "STEWBING") The performance doesn't ruin the experience but it certainly doesn't enhance it.

    The Eagles are the bestselling, and arguably the tightest-lipped, American group ever. Now band member and guitarist Don Felder finally breaks the Eagles years of public silence to take fans behind the scenes. He shares every part of the bands wild ride, from the pressure-packed recording studios and trashed hotel rooms to the tension-filled courtrooms, and from the joy of writing powerful new songs to the magic of performing in huge arenas packed with roaring fans.

    Paul Schmitz says: "Don Felder is an interesting dude"
    "Fascinating and revealing..."

    What did you love best about Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001)?

    This book confirms all those rumors of discord that always swirled around The Eagles. It is a fascinating story of growing and outgrowing.


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

    I listen to audio books in the car and with this one I found myself sitting in the driveway at home, unable to stop listening!


    Any additional comments?

    Warning: After you finish this book you may be struck with an overwhelming desire to go to your iTunes and delete all the solo Don Henley stuff!
