    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Daniel E. Jacobs says: "putting his voice on what people have been saying"
    "King strikes. Again"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Guns to be better than the print version?

    Only did audio version because I'm blind. I have listened to Dr King since the days of traveling I-5 on road trips between Portland and LA started with drawing of the three and got hooked.


    What other book might you compare Guns to and why?

    Noam chompsky it's a real motivating look hopefully the masses listen to wisdom, but we know only the realists will


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Who


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I never thought what I wrote would end in ritual massacres


    Any additional comments?

    I bought all your books on tape, even the green mile now I'm buying them again. How rich do you and your family have to be? You should keep your guns. And ask yourself does the king of make believe belong in reality

    PS. Thanks for Insomnia

  • In the Company of Heroes: The True Story of Black Hawk Pilot Michael Durant and the Men Who Fought and Fell at Mogadishu

    Durant's experience as a prisoner in Somalia grew increasingly bizarre, crystallizing a clash of cultures by turns frightening, melancholy, hilarious, and strangely familiar. Revealing never-before-told stories with the incisive thought and emotion of one who was there, In the Company of Heroes is one man's unforgettable, true story of going to hell and making it back alive.

    The New World Order. Hitler referred to it in his diaries. President George H. W. Bush foretold of it in his speeches. Formed by a secretive global elite, the group seeking this new order has taken hold of the nation and perhaps the world. Its influence pervades every reach of American society, from the products we buy at the grocery store to the topics of evening news programs.

    Ninety-nine elite American soldiers are trapped in the middle of a hostile city. As night falls, they are surrounded by thousands of enemy gunmen. Their wounded are bleeding to death. Their ammunition and supplies are dwindling. This is the story of how they got there - and how they fought their way out. Black Hawk Down drops you into a crowded marketplace in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia with the U.S. Special Forces and puts you in the middle of the most intense firelight American soldiers have fought since the Vietnam war.
