  • Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream

    When Hugh Hefner quit his job at Esquire to start a magazine called Playboy, he didn't just want to make money, he wanted to make dreams come true. In this wise and penetrating biography, intellectual historian Steven Watts looks at what Hugh Hefner went on to become and how he took America with him. Hefner became one of the most hated and envied celebrities in America, standing just barely on the wrong side of decency - with as many as seven million subscribers to his magazine.

    Very interesting story of how Hugh Hefner started and an interesting look into his life. The only problem was after a while it started to drag on and on. Overall a very interesting story and it's easy to see why so many men idolize Hugh Hefner; including me!

  • Stick to Drawing Comics, Monkey Brain!: Cartoonist Ignores Helpful Advice

    Everyone knows Scott Adams as the king of workplace humor. No office is complete without a few Dilbert strips on the wall. And if you compare a VP to the Pointy-Haired Boss, no further description is necessary. But why should a humorist stick to the workplace when there are so many other great subjects to explore? What about politics? Religion? Malfunctioning underpants?

    Overall

    I enjoyed the book very much, but it is nothing more than a 10 hour monologue. It is very funny in spots and very entertaining throughout, but it tends to just ramble from topic to topic. At times I was asking myself why was I putting credence into the opinion of a cartoonist, but then I realized that I should trust his opinion more than most of the pompous windbags out there giving their opinions, plus Scott's are much funnier.

    Each week, when Sports Illustrated's 21 million readers open up their magazine, many turn right to the last page - because that's where to find SI's most popular feature: the Life of Reilly column, written by best-selling author Rick Reilly. This new collection includes 100 of Reilly's favorite columns from the last six years, along with an introduction by Lance Armstrong.

    Overall

    Rick Reilly is one of my favorite sports writers and this book does not disappoint. This is a "best of" from his SI articles and they are all very compelling. The only problem is with the narrator. I've never had a problem with a narrator before, but it's obvious this one is not a sports fan by the way he butchers so many of the names of the athletes, especially the eastern Europeans.

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is one of the most electrifying, most admired novels of our time. Set in the bleak confines of a state mental hospital and narrated by a half-Indian patient named Chief Bromden, it's the story of a titanic battle of wills between two unforgettable characters.

    Nina says: "Even better than I remember1"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    Interesting and captivating story and the author's interpretation makes it that much more interesting. After hearing the book, I had to see the movie, yeah, the book is far better. The interview with Ken Kesey is a very enjoyable addition to the download.

    Savor one of the most clever of Christie's suspenseful classics. An American businessman is stabbed to death aboard a luxury train, the Orient Express, snowbound in the middle of Europe. Nothing escapes the eagle eye and quick intelligence of the great Hercule Poirot, and clues abound. Sorting through a dozen perfectly respectable passengers, all suspects, Poirot is tenacious in his pursuit of the truth.

    Overall

    I enjoyed the story very much, this was my first Agatha Christie book, but won't be my last. The narrator also did an outstanding job and used a wide range of voices for the characters. Toward the end some of the female voices started to blend together, but by that time I was so wrapped up in the story all I could do was concentrate on the facts and wait impatiently for Poirot to reveal the murderer. Well worth the time spent.
