    Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the French Pyrenees: the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, her version of the life of Jesus and the events of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of L'Attendu, the Expected One.

    "Not mystery novel"
    Overall

    This book is not worth it. This is more like a what if? I am not Christian. So when I listened to this audio book and others like it, e.g. The Da Vinci Code, or the Last Supper. I am more intersted in the criminal web, the invisible hand, the syndicate, and fiction mixed in with some historical drama either set in the present or the past where the detective(s) is using available tools to solve the crime. This book seems to be more about restating or Author's wishfull version of history. Or maybe it is all true and this is just as boring for people who know christian history and are like me wondering what is the point?

    On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all.

    To take a skeptical approach to American history is not to dabble in imaginative conspiracy theories; rather, it's to reframe your understanding of this great nation's past and actually strengthen your appreciation for what makes American history such a fascinating chapter in the larger story of Western civilization. And in this bold 24-lecture series, you can do just that.

    Story

    Prof. Mark stolen provides an excellent narration in a clear, steady tone. It was not boring to listen to these lectures. The breadth of time period from 1776 to 2008, with emphasis on periods upto 1990 also helped to put events in perspective.

    In six minutes, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming. So says Wes Holloway, a once-cocky and ambitious presidential aide, about the day that changed his life forever. On that Fourth of July, Wes put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the presidential limousine. By the time the trip came to an end, Wes was permanently disfigured, and Boyle was dead, the victim of a crazed assassin.

    Nick says: "Too Much Psychobabble"
    "save ur credits"
    Overall

    There is no Book of Fate. There was no methodical or interseting study done by the author into the lives of U.S. presidents or the presidential office. The title is misleading and a purposeful way to capitalize on the current fascination with Davinci Code genre of books. This book was a waste of 8hrs of my time. Save ur credits
