    Story

    Even centuries later, the final decades of the 20th century are still regarded as one of the darkest and most perilous chapters in the history of humanity. Now, as an ancient and forbidden technology tempts mankind once more, Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise must probe deep into the secrets of the past, to discover the true origins of the dreaded Eugenics Wars - and of perhaps the greatest foe he has ever faced.

    Story
    Would you listen to Star Trek again? Why?

    I found myself re-listening to the book. The story is rich and the characters come alive. The Eugenics Wars are the most superb audio I've even listened to. Some tell Audible to include Vol III To Reign in Hell.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek?

    Any scene with Khan.


    What does Anthony Stewart Head bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Atmosphere the allows the reader to visualize what's happening.

  • No, They Can't: Why Government Fails - But Individuals Succeed

    Story

    The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been. It never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, he has dismantled society's sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems. In No, They Can't, the New York Times best-selling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the "perfect" government - left or right - and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals - and fast.

    Daniel Cogan says: "Great Book, Must Listen"

    Would you consider the audio edition of No, They Can't to be better than the print version?

    Yes b/c I enjoy his voice and drive alot.


    What about John Stossel’s performance did you like?

    His knowledge and consistency to provide evidence and make logical arguments for grounding his point of view. It makes his case almost irrefutable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    TSA and Health Care. Also when he balances the budget.


    Any additional comments?

    Great work, the only thing I miss, which Stossel did in Gimme A Break, is include audio clips for the people he quotes.
