    Overall

    Your Mac Life is a very fun and entertaining show. It features Apple and tech news as well as interviews with industry notables and other tidbits. The actually amount of technical information can be low but the show is useful for keeping up with the general Mac and Apple community. YML is very irreverent and casual so beware if you area easily offended. I'm actually more of a PC guy but I still enjoy the show.

    Story

    The Commander in Chief of the United States Central Command from July 2000 through July 2003, General Tommy Franks made history leading American and Coalition forces to victory in Afghanistan and Iraq, the decisive battles that launched the war on terrorism.

    Ron says: "An American's American"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    This is an excellent modern soldier's autobiography. Well written and well narrated. Franks' story is very interesting (and very different from what I expected) and gives you a glimpse behind the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. A better read than Powell or Schwarzkopf's works I think.

  • Colder than Hell: A Marine Rifle Company at Chosin Reservoir

    Story
    (40)

    Joe Owen tells it like it was in this evocative story of a marine rifle company in the uncertain, early days of the Korean War. His powerful description of close combat in the snow-covered mountains of the Chosin Reservoir and of the survival spirit of his Marines provide a gritty real-life view of frontline warfare.As a lieutenant who was with them from first muster in California, Owen was in a unique position to see the hastily assembled mix of some 200 regulars and raw reservists harden into a superb Marine rifle company. The action and narrative move fast as the company learns to fight under enemy fire, eat frozen rations, and keep pushing forward when its wounded and dead go down.

    Paul says: "Excellent!"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    First of all the narrator does a great job with the book. The book itself is a gripping tale of infantry combat in the Korean War. The author tells it like he saw it and the book does not dwell on the larger issues of the war (military or political). But if you want a great 'you are there' story of infantry combat this is one of the best accounts I have read. A classic.

    Story

    Fed up with the Republican Right? Then you'll love Al Franken's scathingly hilarious look at America's largest talk show host and his conservative cronies. Funny yet uncompromisingly fair, Franken tackles the issues - and the politicians - in ways few have dared.

    R. Hill says: "Give us the rest of it"
    "Liars is a better book"
    Overall

    The book itself is probably worth three stars. Not nearly as funny or insightful as Al's Liars book. The worst though is the audio quality of this title. Much of it is almost inaudible. It is hard to understand Al but his audio inserts are almost imposssible. If you are going to listen in the car I'd pass on this one.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Story
    (311)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Interesting"
    Overall

    Right-wingers and Fox News fans are not going to like it but Al takes various folks to task for their statements (well, ok, mostly misstatements). He does so intelligently, fairly, with solid research and, best of all, humor. The book can get a bit tedious at times as Al strives to make his points detailed. The decision to include actual voice audio of other people at times is interesting but usually jolting and/or of lower quality which can be a bit annoying. Also the audio book contains content not in the printed version. Overall probably a more 'fair and balanced' look at political life and certainly entertaining and thought provoking.

    From the acclaimed Vanity Fair and GQ journalist - an unprecedented, in-depth portrait of the man whose return to Apple precipitated one of the biggest turnarounds in business history.

    Thomas says: "Awesome background on Apple, NeXT, and Pixar."
    "Excellent book!"
    Overall

    The author is also an excellent narrator. I wish he would read more books. The book itself is also very well done. It is interesting and filled with lots of good tid bits. The book si both amusing and informative. Of course after reading it you will wonder how Jobs ever managed to accomplish anything with his huge ego and obvious lack of talent in anything. But obviously bluster and abuse can take you far.
