    In Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards, best-selling humorist P. J. O’Rourke delivers a hilarious theory of politics.

    America’s most subversive conservative, O’Rourke describes government as a devil’s bargain between power, freedom, and responsibility, and goes on to hilariously skewer the politicians who have bargained with us to consolidate power, and the many mini-bargains and evasions that citizens have made with the consequences of their choices.

    Fernando says: "Would be much funnier with a different narrator"
    "Don't Vote - It Just Encourages the Bastards"
    Overall

    Very funny and entertaining - also a tad informative, but somewhat redundant. Possibly should have been a pamphlet.

    On a sunny afternoon in late June, Cambridge professor Joseph Reavley is summoned from a student cricket match to learn that his parents have died in an automobile crash.

    Very dull and Ann Perry doesn't know much about WWI. I was hoping for basic WWI history. But Instead I got a murder mystery.

  • The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War

    The Second World War lasted for 2,174 days, cost $1.5 trillion, and claimed the lives of more than 50 million people. Why did the Axis lose? And could they, with a different strategy, have won? Andrew Roberts's acclaimed new history has been hailed as the finest single-volume account of this epic conflict. From the western front to North Africa, from the Baltic to the Far East, he tells the story of the war - the grand strategy and the individual experience, the cruelty and the heroism - as never before.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A very interesting book with some shortcomings."
    "What a dope I've been!"

    Story

    I grew up thinking WWII was akin to a club-med camping trip. (But that's what our Gov. wanted us to think.) I'm sure this book didn't tell everything that went on. But like Gen. Sherman of the Civil War once said; "War is hell!" And he wasn't kidding! Good book.

    I had to adjust to the strong British accent. But once I got used to it. . . I was hooked!

    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.

    Robert says: "Interesting but wandering"

    Very interesting! Now I can better understand a psychopath when I see (or hear) one.
    I also understand why my dog always yawns when I'm clipping his toe-nails. He's nervous!

    The definitive account of Germany's malign transformation under Hitler's total rule and the implacable march to war. This magnificent second volume of Richard J. Evans's three-volume history of Nazi Germany was hailed by Benjamin Schwartz of The Atlantic Monthly as "the definitive English-language account... gripping and precise." It chronicles the incredible story of Germany's radical reshaping under Nazi rule.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A catalog of horrors"
    "The Third Reich in Power:"
    Overall

    I loved it but it was a bit too long. However, it's a must read/listen for anyone interested in Hitler and his crazy ways!

    In this astonishing and startling book, award-winning science and history writer Robert Whitaker investigates a medical mystery: Why has the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States tripled over the past two decades? Every day, 1,100 adults and children are added to the government disability rolls because they have become newly disabled by mental illness, with this epidemic spreading most rapidly among our nations children. What is going on?

    This book was an eye opener and very scary! When my youngest daughter was in the third grade her teacher said she had ADHD and wanted her to take drugs for it. Her father and I said "NO" and put her on a strict exercise program plus a time limit for almost everything. We bought and set timers in every room, so when the timer went off - she had to stop whatever she was doing. It worked! And the school wanted to know what we did? She's now in college and just finished two tours of duty in Iraq. I'm very proud of her.

    At the end of the last century, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was a booming coal-and-steel town filled with hardworking families striving for a piece of the nation's burgeoning industrial prosperity. In the mountains above Johnstown, an old earth dam had been hastily rebuilt to create a lake for an exclusive summer resort patronized by the tycoons of that same industrial prosperity, among them Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, and Andrew Mellon.

    Susan K Donley says: "A page-turner! HIstory that reads like a novel"

    Drawing on hundreds of accounts by soldiers, politicians, aid workers, entertainers and the Vietnamese people, Paul Ham reconstructs for the first time the full history of our longest military campaign. From the commitment to engage, through the fight over conscription and the rise of the anti - war movement, to the tactics and horror of the battlefi eld, Ham exhumes the truth about this politicians' war - which sealed the fate of 50,000 Australian servicemen and women.
