    In World War 3.0, renowned media critic Ken Auletta chronicles the fierce conflict between the world's elephantine media companies from the vantage of its most important theater of operations: the devastating second front opened up against Bill Gates' empire by the United States government.

    Very one-sided (anti-Microsoft) - I guess if you're a Microsoft-hater you'll probably like it, but otherwise skip it.

  • Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right

    Story

    Ann Coulter, "pundit extraordinaire," takes a hard look at modern political discourse. Refreshingly honest, unerringly timely, Coulter lashes into liberals and demonstrates how the media obfuscates the issues, belittles the right and praises the left. Her outspoken manner has made her one of the most fascinating women in politics, according to George magazine. Don't miss C-SPAN's Booknotes: Ann Coulter's Slander.

    Amazon Customer says: "Liberals Should Listen to the Book"
    "Unfairly maligned"
    Overall

    I was wary of this book - I consider myself a moderate (most definitely socially, if not economically) and listened to Al Franken's 'Lies' just prior to this. Franken spends half the book accusing Coulter of being both a liar and a lunatic. Thankfully I decided to give this book a chance.

    Al Franken is perhaps a BIT (although not much) funnier than Ann but Slander is a MUCH better book. And unlike Franken's, this book does NOT stoop to the level of personal attacks and unjustified invective.

    It's not surprising the hard-core liberals choose to slam this book. But if you've got an even slightly open mind, I suggest you give it a chance and take a listen. Like me, you may find yourself (very) pleasantly surprised.

    The Harvard Business School has its own boot camp, and you're the prize recruit. Let leading marketing consultant Mark Stevens teach you the strategies of the business world's most rewarding training program...without the big tuition pricetag.

    Chris Selland says: "A commercial for Harvard"
    "A commercial for Harvard"
    Overall

    A few good ideas (thank God) but generally this is nothing but a commercial for Harvard's executive program. Don't waste your money. Call Harvard and ask for a brochure if that's your cup of tea.

    From the author of Silence of the Lambs, it's the terrifying tale that introduced the world to Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter. There's a serial killer on the loose who specializes in murdering innocent, happy families, and now it's up to FBI Special Agent Will Graham to understand the brutal killer's motivation and anticipate his next move. Graham needs to get inside the killer's mind; to do that, he needs the help of the brilliant, psychopathic Hannibal Lecter.

    L. Jeffreys says: "May as well just watch the DVD"
    "Very choppy abridgement"
    Overall

    This is basically the 'Cliff Notes' version of the book. Cut back far too much - this version tells you the basics, but there is absolutely zero character development.
