    Geert Wilders is a hunted man. He lives in a heavily protected safe house that is bombproof and bulletproof. Why? Because Geert Wilders is marked for death by Islamic extremists. In his new book, Marked for Death, Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders tells his never-before-published story about the jihad being waged against him—and the West.

    William says: "Outstanding! Every American should read this!"

    Would you listen to Marked for Death again? Why?

    Yes, and I have recommended it to many friends. It explains Islam and what we can do to combat the creeping Islamization of the West. It is the story of a brave man that we can all relate to.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it and I will probably buy the hardcover version as well because the quotes used were so perfectly suited to the chapters that I would like to incorporate them into my vocabulary.

  • The Secret Life of Bees

    Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Secret Life of Bees in three words, what would they be?

    I would sum up The Secret Life of Bees with the words: true, wise, and touching.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Life of Bees?

    The most memorable moment for me was when Lily had bees swarming around her and she didn't flinch but floated mentally to another place and was able to keep calm and become "one" with the bees.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are so many gems in this book. Each word drips with sweet truth against the backdrop of bitter racism. The book doesn't focus on "racism" beyond the matter of fact reality of living in the south during that era.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Secret Life of Bees and why?

    August is the most memorable character for me. Salt of the earth sweetened with a lifetime of honey.


    Any additional comments?

    Please read or listen to this book before you see the movie. You will be touched, moved, and uplifted by this glorious work of art.

  • Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey

    David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left and an editor of Ramparts, the magazine that set the intellectual and revolutionary tone for the movement. From his vantage point at the center of the action, he provides vivid portraits of people who made the radical decade.

    Where does Radical Son rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best explanations of the 60's and the radical mindset. You will find yourself constantly saying, "Ahaa! Now I understand!"

    This book is like a Rosh Hashana Challa, sweet, complete, and satisfying. Perhaps a bit like Passover with some bitter herbs as well. But no life is complete without that. You feel the wholeness of life, living, and dying, betrayal and disbelief, hope and perseverance.
