    George Whitefield is considered the greatest evangelist of the 18th century and was a major contributor to the "Great Awakening" in Colonial America. Born in 1714 of humble origins, he grew up to become a very popular preacher. In this sermon, "The Method of Grace", Whitefield shows the way to receive true, lasting peace within the soul.

    George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st president. Forty-three men have served as president of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a president told the story of his father, another president, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career.

    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Message?

    wow loved Jesus, Peter is great, and seems just like people of today, John rocks, Paul really hits it out of the park, now i understand why so many people follow Jesus, no figure in history went thru so much , born in sub par conditions, did not care about titles or wealth,wonderful ...so glad i took such a little amount of time to give this one listen, now i think i will listen again....and again....great....


    Which scene was your favorite?

    they all are just normal people , not like anything that you would imagine from church, just people who witnessed an amazing event, and shared it....people have it all wrong you don't have to give up anything , this really is the ultimate free gift....you do nothing, just accept...favorite scene,(hard to narrow it down) Jesus waiting around, and Lazarus dies, NOT....well sort of, you have to listen to understand,


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

    i found my self very emotional and crying, i had to take it in small doses, its hard to see yourself and to compare yourself to ....Jesus....no wonder so many try to deny or just say it ain't so, he is either a liar, or a nut, or ................(add bright lights and trumpets here)

  • Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude

    Maximizing the trader's state of mind is the key to successful results. Conflicts, contradictions, and paradoxes in thinking can spell disaster for even a highly motivated, astute and well-grounded trader. Mark Douglas, an industry consultant since 1982, sends the message that a "thinking strategy" will profoundly influence a trader's success rate. Douglas addresses five very specific issues to give traders the insight and understanding about themselves that will make them consistent winners in the market. Trading in the Zone offers specific solutions to the "people factor" of commodity price movement. It uncovers the true culprit for lack of consistency when it comes to stock picking: lack of focus and self-confidence. Through simple exercises, traders will learn how to think in terms of probabilities and adopt the specific beliefs necessary to developing a winner's mindset. Along the way, they'll gain valuable insights into their own entrenched misconceptions about the market.

    Would you listen to Trading in the Zone again? Why?

    if you are a trader, this is close to the holy grail, (no one can ever get the holy grail) for mental conditioning ,on my favorites list and now stands in my library...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    myself and my mental framework


    What about Walter Dixon???s performance did you like?

    the content reached the right place between my ears....


    What insight do you think you???ll apply from Trading in the Zone?

    you can't get something for nothing, you have to listen and see if your mind has the ability to pull it out....if it can you are in a better place, if not , please close you trading accounts, you are not a trader ....

    "Years ago, I wrote about a retail store in the Palo Alto environs—a good one, which had a box of two-cent candies at the checkout. I subsequently remember that 'little' parting gesture of the two-cent candy as a symbol of all that is Excellent at that store. Dozens of people who have attended seminars of mine have come up to remind me, sometimes 15 or 20 years later, of “the two-cent candy story,” and to tell me how it had a sizable impact on how they did business."

    his mastery of the american scene shows forth in full view, when at great length and with frequent repetition he extols the greatness of our beloved leader, barrack obama, with our nation in shambles and millions out of work , and the printing presses running at full steam this author should be required reading by all business leaders, in red china...

    Swing trading is gaining popularity as a powerful method to increase returns, and potentially lower risks, by profiting from short-term price moves. The Master Swing Trader explains how traders can use technical analysis, charting, and market sentiment to make trades that hold through price fluctuations and noise with wider stops.

    layer upon layer of almost knowledge, disquised as wisdom hidden among many words, yet never getting to any point, this author missed his calling, he should have written textbooks about origins, he would have won a nobel prize, could have been the worlds greatest evolutionist,or global warming author,

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Robert says: "Over before you know it"

    if you are not well read, and if you think oprah is cool,if you watch too much liberal propaganda ie.television, if your read liberal propaganda,ie.newspapers, please don't even consider this, but if you have the mental capabilities, and are the elect few,then proceed. we need a mr. gault,
