    The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history, the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild 12-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

    Elizabeth says: "Fascinating!"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    I would recommend this book. It is fast paced and moves along very well. I found it to be informative and provided a lot of insight into many details I did not know about the Lincoln assination. It is well researched and presented in an interesting format. The reader is easy to listen to and adds to the experience. If you like nonfiction, this book will provide you with background on one of the most important parts of American history.

    Younger Next Year is about how to turn back your biological clock. How to become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, and continue to live with vitality and grace into your 80s and beyond.

    Overall

    I maintain an above-average workout routine. And don't need a lot of coaching to make me realize the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The narration in the book is a bit too dramatic for me. The "real life" examples the author uses are questionable. Get up tommorrow and commit to a 60-minute cardiovascular workout 5 times a week. Ride a bike 20 miles every other day, and start to lift weights. Use the money you would have spent on this book towards a heart monitor, and spare yourself of this book. On the other side, if your idea of a workout is a trip to the fridge to get another beer for the pizza you're eating then YOU NEED HELP. Buy this book. It will help you change your life.

    The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere.

    Roger Smith says: "Very Good"
    "Good from start to finish"
    Overall

    I enjoyed every minute of this book from start to finish. It offers an interesting perspective into Google on both a business and personal side. I've used Google many times without ever giving any consideration into the origin of the website, how it operates or it's long range business plan. This book offers a unique insight into the personal and business sides of it's founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. And provides many interesting behind the scenes details, that hold your interest throughout the entire book. This was my 4th Audible book, and was my best so far.
