    Story
    (438)

    A larger-than-life hero with a towering personality, Robin Olds was a graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame for his All-American performance for Army. In World War II, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of 22—a double ace with twelve aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend.

    R. A. Frank says: "Top Notch Audiobook"
    "One of those books"
    Overall

    This is one of those books you wish would never end. Olds is one of those people you wish you knew.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "Einstein is much deeper than E=MCC"
    Overall

    A great listen, I have already recommended this book to several people. In fact, I was so moved that I need to read the book as well.

    We have heard stories about Einstein, unfortunately these stories are tales and legends or simple not true.

    Einstein is a deep man, some one I would have like to have known. There is so much I did not know about him, such as his defense of Civil Rights in the USA. To his way with women.

    As well, I chose this book because of my love of physics and it did not disappoint.

    Get it, you will love it, the only disappointment will be when it comes to an end, 21 hours never went by so quickly!

    Striking, heartfelt, and utterly engrossing, Dispatches from the Edge is an unforgettable memoir that takes us behind the scenes of the cataclysmic events of our age and allows us to see them through the eyes of one of America's most trusted, fearless, and pioneering reporters.

    Andrew says: "A Powerful Listen"
    "Near the top of my list"
    Overall

    This is near the top of my audio book list; it is one of those rare books that I can't wait to get back to. Like books from Bill Bryson and Dan Brown, "Dispatches from the Edge" is captivating.

    Anderson Cooper is an interesting character; although he is from a wealthy family, the path he chose is quite different and he should be commended for that. His insights into humanities hot spots provide a glimpse that is usually not provided by those of his profession. Overall, it is an execellent listen and worth the time.

  • The Breakout Principle: Maximize Creativity, Athletic Performance, Productivity and Personal Well-Being

    Story

    In The Breakout Principle, Dr. Herbert Benson delivers the ultimate self-help principle - simple instructions to activate a powerful biological trigger that converts conflict and confusion into clarity and extraordinary performance, a state athletes refer to as "the zone."

    J. James-Long says: "A forward-thinking scientist"
    "Good attempt but..."
    Overall

    The author did make some valid points with respect to the break out principle. However, he spends too much time on mysticism and mixing science and religion. Call me old fashion, but religion is not science and vice-versa.

    There are a key few minutes that delve into making the breakout principle work for you, but it is not worth the money. It is a combination of relaxation, tuning out, and entering what runners call the zone, for peak performance.

    In a phrase: "I was not impressed".
