    Following his #1 New York Times best seller Our Endangered Values, the former president, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers an assessment of what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel, with dignity and justice for Palestine.

    Story

    Rarely does one come by such a simplified and shallow analysis of events.
    However, for Jimmy Carter fans, plenty of pomposity, self importance and congratulatory comments have "managed" to find their way into this succinct and concise version of the extremely complex events described.
    Waste of time (and money, even for the sale price)...

  • Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

    Story
    (212)

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Story

    I bought this book because I really enjoyed Helter Skelter, by the same author, Vincent Bugliousi. Despite being very long and detailed it was fascinatingly written and read.
    Unfortunately, I can not say the same about this book...

    "Reclaiming History" is too long and goes into tiresome and boring detail. I gave it a good (and long...) chance, but I just couldn't listen through the whole thing. It was way too boring...

  • Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture

    Masters of Doom is the amazing true story of the Lennon and McCartney of video games: John Carmack and John Romero. Together, they ruled big business. They transformed popular culture. And they provoked a national controversy. More than anything, they lived a unique and rollicking American Dream, escaping the broken homes of their youth to produce the most notoriously successful game franchises in history - Doom and Quake - until the games they made tore them apart. This is a story of friendship and betrayal, commerce and artistry.

  • Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting

    Story
    (721)

    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    Story

    Interesting with a humoristic twist, while giving a lot to think about. However, towards the end tends to repeat itself.
    All in all, a good listen

  • Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey through His Son's Meth Addiction

    David Sheff's story is a first: a teenager's addiction from the parent's point of view, a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.

    Before meth, Sheff's son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first warning signs, the attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another, too, lest they become addicted to addiction.

    I couldn't take me headphones off...
    The story is sad, touching and written (and read) in a realistic and heartbreaking way.
    No cliches and self help mantras - It is a window into the author's sole.
