    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    David says: "Don't bother with the abridged version"

    Story
    Would you listen to Charlie Wilson's War again? Why?

    Absolutely! The details and explanations of the Russian War in Afghanistan are fascinating. I understand how the US participated then and what the US is up against now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How this Congressman got things done.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's a great artist who captures each character w/ the appropriate dialect and inflections. He makes the book real throughout without falter.


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

    I enjoyed it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Its worth the listeners investment in time and money..

  • Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy: A Righteous Gentile vs. the Third Reich

    Story

    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book is time well spent to read it because we need to know of those inside Nazi Germany who stood up against Hitler.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While Bonhoffer was a devout Christian, he was concerned for the well being of all people.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not put me to sleep. Very dry without expression.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Eric Metaxas’s life?

    I've seen Metaxas speak. He's very interesting, excited and gregarious. Very satirical. I believe humor is in his future.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is a better read than it is a listen.

    Boston, 1926. The ‘20s are roaring. Liquor is flowing, bullets are flying, and one man sets out to make his mark on the world. Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city's most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the spoils, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw.

    Richard Delman says: "Lehane shows off his skills."
    "Destined to be a great movie!"

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Absolutely. Its a fascinating book about the will to survive under several incredible adverse situations. Once more the WW II history is fascinating.


    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Louie Zamparini.


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

    No. This is a long book. Its worth the time to marinate on the various events between scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book w/ an ending that surprised me. Its a true testament to the internal fortitude of man.

    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.
