    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    "Extremely disturbing and Thought provoking"
    Overall

    Extremely thought provoking,shocking and revealing. You must listen this audio book. Your prospective
    of how our government handles crucial governing from political decisions to investigative inquiries will never be the same. Thanks Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell job well done,and i hope more to come.

  • My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy

    In this often violent but always introspective memoir, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy tells his much-anticipated story of struggle, survival, and hope on the mean streets of New York City. For the first time, he gives an intimate look at his family background, his battles with drugs, his life of crime, his suffering with sickle-cell anemia, and more. Recently released after serving three and a half years in state prison for what many consider an unlawful arrest, Prodigy is ready to talk about his life as one of rap’s greatest legends.

    "Extremely Inspiring very Thought Provoking"
    Overall

    Words are inadequate to me,to describe the soul wrenching,thought provoking and hair-raising description bro Albert "Prodigy " Johnson depicts in his audio book. From his early beginning life experience in a tough unemphatic school,to growing up in drug filled streets,up until his arrest on minimal infractions ostensibly used to try and frame other hip individuals through a infamous "hip-hop Strike Force". Incredible what the police wanted him to do against other hip artists.

    I only wish other would be artists who are trying to emulate Prodigy(the best parts),would listen carefully to the wisdom of
    is words,on what to do and what not to do in this genre of entertainment. I thought bro Albert "Prodigy" was extremely honest,sincere and wise. I must have listen to this audio book 3 or 4 times.

    I was especially happy that he gave reference to actually youtube videos of certain events,and even more thrilled to have couple of ganster rap songs about 10 minutes near the end of audio book part2,Prodigy's rap art is truly prodigious.

    Great Great job Prodigy. This audio book is a must listen. You will not stop listening until its is completed.

    Thanks Brother Prodigy!! Peace!

  • Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family

    Devra Davis presents a range of recent and long-suppressed research in this timely bombshell. Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain's defenses, and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer. The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable. And half of the world's four billion cell phone users are under 20.

    Overall

    This is a must listen to everyone using cell phone devices. This audio book will make you wonder why the public is not being made more aware of the dangers of using this technology,with out a blue tooth device. I had no idea of the corporate battles that raged of scientist vs big cellular phone corporations. Devra Davis and everyone involved should be commended in putting together a well documented presentation. Since listening to the audio book i have tried to make others aware of the devices and how to properly use them. Keep cell phones away from the head of children! I have checked the boxes of many cell phones and i still don't see any warnings about the radiation leakage from the phones.

    Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards, and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen?

    Jean says: "Interesting look at the early days of the p.c."
    "Vey Good and motivational"
    Overall

    I was captivated buy Steve's story telling. I studied electronics in the past,and now listening to his story makes we want to head to Radio Shack and get a electronics kit again! I was a little disturbed by his pranks and jokes on his peers and the adults he came into contact with though,but nobody got actually injured. A great audio book for anyone who is interested in taking on the great adventure in electronics engineering.

    Frank Pollard awakens in an alley, knowing nothing but his name - and that he is in great danger. Having taken refuge in a motel, he wakes again only to find his hands covered in blood. As far as he knows, he's no killer. But whose blood is this, and how did it get there?

    Root Dorn says: "THE BEST KOONTZ"
    "Excellent..ear candy!"
    Overall

    I think this is one of Dean Koontz's best books. I read it back couple of years ago,but listening to it being read the way it was,was a awesome ear candy treat. The readers made the book come to life,by changing there tone,and word articulations,reading in sync with the character they represented. A must have for your audio library.
