    From the outrageously filthy and oddly innocent comedienne Sarah Silverman comes a memoir—her first book—that is at once shockingly personal, surprisingly poignant, and still pee-in-your-pants funny. If you like Sarah’s television show The Sarah Silverman Program, or memoirs such as Chelsea Handler’s Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea and Artie Lange’s Too Fat to Fish, you’ll love The Bedwetter.

    Story

    I love Sarah Silverman, but this book fell short for me. The early life and start in comedy sections were interesting. The second half just felt like promotion for her show, which I would assume most readers would have seen. The episodic rundown of her show was laborious.

  • Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    Story

    I am always interested in how people work their way up through the ladder to become the faces we see on tv. Cohen's story is interesting and a testament to his persistance and hard work. However, if your looking for great dish on behind the scenes activities behind the housewive's series, you are out of luck. Just remember his main goal is to promote the show and protect Bravo. Nothing about all of the freebie's and positioning that goes on.

    Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the best-selling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year.

    Story

    I found this book entertaining. I also respect the fact that the author was open about the pitfalls and negative effects of what they were attempting to create. I wish he would have illustrated the success ratio more. There was kind of an implication that he was always successful. I would have been interested to know how many "sets" these guys did to have success.

    Loud rock, fast cars, and Cabo. This is the life of Sammy Hagar. For almost 40 years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the band Montrose to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, Sammy's powerful and unforgettable voice has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written - songs like "I Can't Drive 55", "Right Now", and "Why Can't This Be Love".

    Hillary says: "LOVED it Twice"
    "Sammy Hagar Super Genius! or Forrest Gump"
    Overall

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this audiobook, but I hate to break it to Sammy, but people are listening to hear about Van Halen. It definitely delivered, but Sammy as the genius behind every single thing got old after awhile. From fire sprinklers, to stage production, tequila, mountain bikes, cars, Sammy knows all and never fails! Wait, I left out band management writing, promotions, he really does it all!

    ESPN began as an outrageous gamble with a lineup that included Australian Rules Football, rodeo, and a rinky-dinky clip show called Sports Center. Today the empire stretches far beyond television into radio, magazines, mobile phones, restaurants, video games and more, while ESPN's personalities have become global superstars to rival the sports icons they cover.

    Danny D. says: "Not a lot of information"
    "Enjoyed Parts 1 & 2, 3&4 written by ESPN"
    Overall

    the first 2 parts that dealt with the origin and establishment of ESPN were excellent. The insider view of the various complex negotiations regarding; venture capital, broadcasting rights, production, talent, etc, were fascinating. Part 3 was basically a pointless run down of every show idea ESPN put on the air. Part 4 seemed to be ESPN's chance to address (unchallenged) any negative situations that had arisen over the years and put thier spin on it. The female voice on this audiobook was terrible and made the women sound juvenile and naive.

    Immediately gripping and thoroughly harrowing, Storming Las Vegas tells the story of a remarkable true-life crime spree - a story that was previously squashed so as not to disturb tourism, in the ultimate proof of "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas".

    E. L. Robertson says: "I loved it.."
    "Very detailed, but too long"
    Overall

    Author definitely put a lot of effort and research into this book. Probably a little too much research. The detailed descriptions of the lives and histories of those involved was laborious. The main players sure, but even bit players were given quite long biographies. I would have been fine with just modern day crime coverage and Vigoa's background.

    This is Diablo's captivating fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, from quiet gentlemen's clubs to multilevel sex palaces and glassed-in peep shows. In witty prose she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer's keen eye, chronicling her descent into the skin trade and the effect it had on her self-image and her relationship with her now husband.

    Suzn F says: "Prefer a 3.5 if I could"

    I found the behind the scenes operations of strip clubs to be fascinating. Listened to this on one long flight. Very enjoyable.

    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    Steven says: "Best Audible Book Yet"
    "Interesting Listen."
    Overall

    I Felt the author lost objectivity and seemed to be presenting all of these theories as fact and the best way to evaluate players. Interesting how Beane and Podesta were all about the numbers, but yet so emotional when they felt the players weren't playing to them.
