    After almost 60 years as an actor, William Shatner has become one of the most beloved entertainers in the world. It seems that Shatner is everywhere, and he was recently elected to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame. In this touching and funny autobiography, he reveals the man behind his career, and explains how he's become the worldwide star and experienced actor he is today.

    William says: "Very enjoyable"
    "I am really glad I got this audiobook."
    Overall

    Mr Shatner's narration was great.

    This is a good quality autobiography that shares a very real person and his very real life.

    I really like the style and sincerity of his presentation. It has the feel of lounging around with a real good close friend and talking for hours, mind you he does all the talking.
    The listening feels both comfortable and intimate.

    Definately worth getting to know him a little here in this audiobook. You'll really like the person you meet. Even his little shameless promotions will leave a smile.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "very good, read well"
    Overall

    The author is the perfect person to read this book. It has a since of honesty about it that seems to translate a small part of the Afgan plight for the very western mind through a well written story. And again, I really appreciated this author's naration.

    Let noted sex educator Sari Locker show you how to explore your sexual responses, make more rewarding sexual choices, and enhance your sexual pleasure. Included are quick and easy ways to improve your love life, idiot-proof steps to having more fun in and out of bed, and more.

    Michelle says: "just ok"
    "dissapointing and uninformed"
    Overall

    It didn't seem the author was very interested in her subject matter other than whatever must be popular and politically correct to say about it, whether accurate or not. I could almost assume she was a virgin she was so disassociated from her subject matter. If a corporate memo was typed up on sex it would read just like this book.

    Central Europe's ancient civilizations have long been dominated by empires: The Roman Empire; the Habsburg Empire, based in Austria; and more recently, the Soviet Communists. But the decline of communism in the late twentieth century has unleashed old resentments, rivalries, and ambitions that have caused yet more war in this troubled region.

    J says: "Amazing"
    "it was okay."
    Overall

    very informative, just a little rough on style.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Very inciteful"
    Overall

    I really like this book because it gives a very informative and less politicized view of history's most influencial minds. It provides an honest summary of the condition and place of human knowledge.

    Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the French Pyrenees: the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, her version of the life of Jesus and the events of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of L'Attendu, the Expected One.

    Sheila says: "the Expected One (unabridged)"
    "I enjoyed it."
    Overall

    This book is a little goofy, but kind of fun. But most religious text seems a little more than goofy, so this fake one is a little refreshing.

    As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what's under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: "What do I do?" Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue.

    Adam says: "Really Good for What It's For"
    "Informative w/o pretense"
    Overall

    Although this author is long winded and quotes from a lack of his own sense of literary style, he attempts an honest and effective address of a subject he appears confident and competent about. Obviously has an appreciation and respect for the subject matter. This work is a rarity because it lacks pretensive boasting and slong measuring making it a treasure for the library and a important work for us less informed folk.
