    From DaVinci to Rembrandt, van Gogh to Matisse, and Picasso to Warhol, you'll learn about both their artistic masterpieces and their personal messes. Fun and lighthearted, yet full of solid information, trivia, and provocative commentary, Lives of the Artists presents objective, 3-dimensional biographies of the world's great artists.

    L. Worthington says: "Fascinating!"
    "innacurate but fun"
    Overall

    very easy to listen to though many facts were embellished or wrong. Not a very in depth book but def fun to have on in the car.

  • Jazz 101

    Story
    (7)

    Jazz 101 is a fascinating entry into the world of jazz, for the beginner, novice, or jazz enthusiast. Szwed takes listeners on a tour of the varied and nonlinear history of jazz, exploring how it developed from an ethnic music to become America's most popular music and then part of the avant-garde in less than 50 years.

    Tim says: "Great book for understanding Jazz"
    "argh!!"
    Overall

    this is not a good book. It does not follow any course of history. Does not go by timeline or jazz period but instead random chapters on randoms topics. And the wording is very verbose and has a very sterile tone to it all. Boring and with no music in the audio book. Try something else. I have read many books on jazz history and this was the worst.

    Poetry on Record is an engrossing collection of poems read by the people who wrote them, from the dawn of sound recording to the current day. Over the course of four volumes, it tells the story of the past 120 years of poetry in English. Equally important, it allows listeners to understand exactly how the poets intended their poems to be read aloud.

    Overall

    dude, the poets are fine and good but the need to introduce each poem by name and poet which they don't. They just go from one poem to the next. I had no idea who I was listening to.
