    Story

    From Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia, President Barack Obama addresses America's students directly as they come back to school for another year. He is introduced by student Timothy Spicer, president of Wakefield's senior class. Spicer is introduced by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

    Overall

    I am a teacher at an alternative high school. President Obama's speech was well spoken, heartfelt, and timely. The main idea of his message, to strive towards success no matter your circumstances, is one I hope all young people take to heart. This speech has nothing to do with political views. Rather, it's about using you talents to enhance your future and by extension the future of America.

    Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audiobook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

    Overall

    .....by all means get "Roseannearchy". It tells a more complete story of who she is, why she made her infamous choices, the price she paid, and why she'd do it again in a heartbeat. If you are a fan of Roseanne, hearing her tell her story is icing on the cake. If you aren't a fan of hers, but you crave strong, fearless women, this audiobook will satisfy your appetite.
