    Grown people playing on the telephone is a disgrace. I'm ashamed of myself for laughing so hard. After about the fifth or sixth time listening to it, I didn't laugh so much.

    Story
    (51)

    Scott McClellan belonged to President Bush's select inner circle of trusted advisers during one of the most challenging, contentious periods of recent history. Over a period of more than seven years, he witnessed, day-to-day, exactly how the presidency veered off course, not only by its decision to topple Saddam Hussein, but by an embrace of confrontational politics in the face of an increasingly partisan Washington and a hostile media.

    "I nominate Scott McClellan"
    Overall

    It must have taken a lot of courage for Scott McClellan to write this book. I recommend it to anyone in politics or news. The more Americans who read this book, the harder it will be for Washington to pull the wool over our eyes. I am a bit surprised at the nerve of some of the people who occupy the whitehouse. They will so whatever it takes to advance their agenda.

    The Learning Spanish Like Crazy method lets you learn Spanish quickly and easily. It has been created by native Spanish speakers from Latin America to make sure you learn to speak Spanish just like a native. All speakers are college-educated speakers from Latin America to make sure you develop an authentic accent. This is a fun method of learning Spanish - no tedious memory drills. You learn practical spoken Spanish that you can use in everyday situations. Level 1 consists of Lessons 1 to 30.

    Overall

    After only listening to half the program, I was speaking Spanish in the Dominican Republic. My family can't believe how much I learned. I was translating for my husband, speaking to the hotel staff and the tour guides and ordering food in Spanish. I must admit that at first I didn't think I was learning things that would help me on vacation but I stuck with it for a few lessons and I began to see the usefulness. It was so much fun to be able to speak to people in Spanish. My husband was really amazed because he took a college course in Spanish and said he didn't learn as much as I did. I'm about to purchase level II. I highly recommend it for people who are travelling to Spanish speaking countries in the Carribean.

    Story

    On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

    "I'm hooked"
    Overall

    I love puzzles, history and fascinating little tidbits with significant meaning. Deaver is excellent at detail and leading you down a heart pounding, but misleading path. I fear that revealing what I really liked best about this story would give too much away and ruin the book for other readers. Where is the sequel? I can't wait to read it.

    I love good humor that I can share with other people and this book fit the bill. You can share the laughs with grandma or your seven year old neice. I play it in my car for friends.
