    Genghis Khan was the greatest conqueror of all time, who, at his peak, ruled an empire that stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. His conquests are the stuff of legend, his tomb a forgotten mystery. Until now. A mysterious Mongolian harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of his ancestors, and holds a dark secret about Genghis Khan that just might give him the wealth and power to make that dream come true.

    What did you like best about Treasure of Khan? What did you like least?

    Unique and interesting storyline that occurs mostly out of the water!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration moved along well most of the time while lagging in some spots.


    Could you see Treasure of Khan being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Due to it's length at lends itself to a series more than a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    unabriged version somewhat LONG with 3 parts

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definately recommend to all; even non-poker players. Great science-based insights for everyone who wants to be better at any activity and improve oneself at setting and accomplishing goals.


    What other book might you compare The Mental Game of Poker to and why?

    Jared's book and methods are to the mental side of poker what Doyle's Super Systew is to the strategy side of poker.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Cadence was well metered but the alternate voice sounded mechanical and contrived. Should have used actual players or someone else's voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Too much info for 1 sitting.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Much information left out of common accounts presented in a novel-like manner than maintains interest thoughout.
