    In their new book, Unfit for Command, John O'Neill and co-author Jerome Corsi bring together the words of more than 200 Navy veterans who served with John Kerry and who feel it their duty to tell why Kerry is unworthy of the presidency.

    Overall

    I have been an Audible listener for years and this book is well written, thoughtful anf insightful. I enjoyed listening to the entire thing. For people who want to know how Bush has run our country, listen to this book. Tommy Franks tells the entire story of how we got into Iraq. God help this country!

    The Commander in Chief of the United States Central Command from July 2000 through July 2003, General Tommy Franks made history leading American and Coalition forces to victory in Afghanistan and Iraq, the decisive battles that launched the war on terrorism.

    Overall

    I found the book to be inspiring, demonstrating the true virtues of an american boy, properly raised by loving parents who then goes on to a career of service to his country. The big difference between this boy and others like him during the time is that he ends up becoming a general, responsible for thousands of people during a time of war. I think this is a good read for anyone who somehow believes that america's stability and might comes from anything other than family.

  • Sleeping with the Devil: How Washington Sold Its Soul for Saudi Crude

    Story

    Robert Baer reveals how our government's relationship with Saudi Arabia and America's dependence on Saudi oil make us vulnerable to economic disaster and put us at risk for further acts of terrorism. Our addiction to cheap oil and Saudi petrodollars caused us to turn a blind eye to the Al Sa'ud's culture of bribery, and its financial support of fundamentalist Islamic groups that have been directly linked to international acts of terror, including those against the United States.

    Kevin Christy says: "Ouch. The truth hurts."
    "It appears that our country is run by the Sauds"
    Overall

    This is an eye opener. With all the partisan argument going on, we hear nothing of the money that finds its way to our politicians on both sides. Given the recent OPEC increase in oil prices, I suspect that Bush is not bending to their money. This is quite disturbing since he appears to be receiving fire from all sides. I would be willing to bet that there is Saudi money behind these attacks, but apparently we will never hear about it. Very distrubing.

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "Loved it!!"
    Overall

    A great book for anyone interested in science, life and who we are. I listen to most of the science books offered at audible, and this one was both fun and educational.

  • Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

    Story

    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

    Mark says: "A bizarre phenomenon"
    "Treason"
    Overall

    Even as a conservative, I had a hard time adjusting to the idea that McCarthy was the victim. All the movies and writing about this man over my 44 years had made me believe that Mccarthy was an overly aggressive politician, trying to promote his political standing through attacks on the left. Now it is clear, whether Coulter's views are 100% accurate or not, that my former view was wrong. It is now clear that McCarthy was attacking, now proven comunist agents, planted in our government, and that the left was more interested in attacking McCarthy and the right than protecting our country or the truth. This confirms my dim view of liberals who seem intent on promoting their own agenda over the truth.
