  • Bitter Brew: The Rise and Fall of Anheuser-Busch and America's Kings of Beer

    The engrossing, often scandalous saga of one of the wealthiest, longest-lasting, and most colorful family dynasties in the history of American commerce—a cautionary tale about prosperity, profligacy, hubris, and the blessings and dark consequences of success. This engrossing, vivid narrative captures the Busch saga through five generations. At the same time, it weaves a broader story of American progress and decline over the past 150 years. It's a cautionary tale of prosperity, hubris, and loss.

    I don't know who exactly the target audience was for this book, but someone had to know that the St Louis community would be a big part of it...right? But yet no one had the common courtesy to check on the pronunciations of the city's neighborhoods and landmarks...and even the newspaper. Very very distracting!

  • Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know

    Twenty four classic fairy tales compiled in 1905 by Hamilton Wright Mabie, this enchanting book isn't your Disney classic. Little Red Riding Hood does get eaten by the Big Bad Wolf, but in most cases the princes and princesses go on to live long and happy lives and the wicked step mothers get their just dues.

    Story

    This was so disappointing. My daughter commutes with me in the morning and we like to listen to audiobooks together. I thought for sure she would love listening to these fairy tales. The problem? It's written in early 1900s English and is just so dry. I couldn't even make it through the first couple minutes of each story.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    The performance was just downright weird and creepy. The different voices were bizarre. Unfortunately I won't be able to get the strange baby-talk-to-the-dog out of my head (ever). If the story was more interesting I might not have been so distracted by the performance. Couldn't even finish it.

  • Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.
