    In Liberty Defined, congressman and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ron Paul returns with his most provocative, comprehensive, and compelling arguments for personal freedom to date. The term "Liberty" is so commonly used in our country that it has become a mere cliché. But do we know what it means? What it promises? How it factors into our daily lives? And most importantly, can we recognize tyranny when it is sold to us disguised as a form of liberty? Dr. Paul writes that to believe in liberty is not to believe in any particular social and economic outcome.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Liberty Defined to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Liberty Defined to and why?

    Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levin because they both have to do with conservatism and liberty. They take different stances on many issues though, so they aren't perfectly comparable.


    What three words best describe Bob Craig’s performance?

    Monotone, precise, and ...


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I just love how everything he says makes so much sense. The government is way to involved; the downward spiral of the world walks hand and hand with Keynesian economics, entitlement, over-regulation, irresponsibility, restriction, effeminacy (for men), over-involvement in stuff that isn't the U.S.'s business, etc...

    Stephen Dando-Collins paints a vivid and definitive portrait of daily life in the Tenth Legion as he follows Caesar and his men along the blood-soaked fringes of the Empire. This unprecedented regimental history reveals countless previously unknown details about Roman military practices, Caesar's conduct as a commander and his relationships with officers and legionnaires, and the daily routine and discipline of the Legion.

    What did you love best about Caesar's Legion?

    The detail and attempted accuracy of what was said and the simplification of the book into "plebeian" terms.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gaius Crastinus, a Centurion in the 10th; really, he was just the man.


    What about Stuart Langton’s performance did you like?

    He narrated the book without irritating me with his voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    IDK.

    From Robert Ferguson comes a comprehensive and thrilling history, based on the latest scholarship, that offers the definitive portrait of the Vikings.

    What did you like best about The Vikings? What did you like least?

    I liked the interesting comments he made about viking culture and warfare; I dislike how much everything jumped around and DID NOT follow a time sequence. One sentence we're in the 700s ad, the other the 10000s, then back to the 800s, etc.


    If you’ve listened to books by Robert Ferguson before, how does this one compare?

    Haven't.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was The Vikings worth the listening time?

    Almost

  • Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer

    In the first and most reliable biography of Daniel Boone in more than 50 years, award-winning historian Faragher brilliantly portrays America's famous frontier hero while illuminating the American hero-making process itself. Drawing from popular narrative, the public record, scraps of documentation from Boone's own hand, and a treasure trove of reminiscences gathered by nineteenth-century antiquarians, Faragher uses the methods of new social history to create a portrait of the man and the times he helped shape.

    James P Carter says: "Excellent book for history readers"
    "A good analysis of a good man"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, especially if that friend has an interest in early American history, the frontier or is enthralled with the wilderness in general.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the anecdotes about Boone's life. I like that Boone is portrayed as a hero not because of the tall tales people tell about him but because of his simple courage, persistence and hardihood.


    What does Tom Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way he says "Boone" is very unique and I found my self mimicking it out-loud.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to my audio books as I drive, so I don't know how I would like it in more than 30 minute bights.


    Any additional comments?

    Here we have a common man being uplifted; because of this, he is a true American hero.
