    From the man who was in the very middle of this perfect economic storm, On the Brink is Paulson's fast-paced retelling of the key decisions that had to be made with lightning speed. Paulson puts the listener in the room for all the intense moments as he addressed urgent market conditions, weighed critical decisions, and debated policy and economic considerations with of all the notable players.

    Story

    I used to work in banking, and now (and in 2008) I work in the financial/equities industry, and I could barely tolerate this book. I tried and stopped half a dozen times, it was monotone and monotonous, and it barely kept my attention. I found myself unable to pay attention, and eventually just gave up. I have a feeling reading the book would be much more interesting and productive, but the dry story in audio form just didn't work for me at all. I'm sure the story is probably a semi-interesting one for people interested in the specifics of what went on in the financial industry in 2008, but even experiencing it firsthand, this book could barely keep my attention for more than 30 minutes. Had to give up. I can't recommend this at all, with so many other, better books (and movies) out there.

  • Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child

    A collection of outrageous stories by the stand-up comic, TV host, and inspiration for the movie National Lampoon's Van Wilder. Bert Kreischer doesn't know how to say "no". If he did, he wouldn't have gotten himself mixed up with a group of Russian mobsters on a class trip to Moscow, earning him his nickname "The Machine". He wouldn't have wrestled with a bear or swum with sharks on national television. He wouldn't have (possibly) smoked PCP with a star of Saturday Night Live.

    I listened to the book in one day. Bert was hilarious, and his stories were great. Great comedy book, and well read (and occasionally improved).

    It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back.

    Overall

    Adam Carolla might rant and rave, but it's pretty much what every reasonable person is already thinking- or would be if the crazy left or right wing didn't try to guilt or bully them out of it. The left and the right might be loud, might have the soapbox, and each might be the flip-side of the same two-party coin, but Adam just tells it like it is, and illustrates time and time again that most people just plain don't think things through, or think critically enough to form reasonable or realistic opinions about anything. Adam's the blue collar hammer-swinging version of Jon Stewart, and not afraid to take on majority opinion or skewer the sacred cows. Adam is a great reader - and equally good at digression - so get an entertaining lesson in common sense with Adam Carolla, and download this now!
