    In the appealing conversational tone that has won him millions of devoted readers, Hahn presents the basic tenets of Church teachings, clears up common misconceptions about specific rituals and traditions, and responds thoughtfully to the objections raised about them. Each chapter concludes with loving, good-natured, inspiring advice on applying the Church's wisdom to everyday life.

    Scott Hahn does have an extraordinary gift for upacking complex Catholicsm teachings into understandable parts. I have read most of his books and I am pleasantly surprise to note that he does the same here with his Audiobook. He does a fine task of narrating his own book.

    On the book itself, I personally believe it is a must have book for all Catholics. The chapters are short and at the end of each chapter there is a reflection quote posed with the author. There are all together 40 chapters covering a wide range of church customs and practices, from Baptism up to the sign of the Cross. Wonderful stuff that every catholic is bound to benefit from!

  • The Presidents Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity

    The Presidents Club was born at Eisenhower’s inauguration when Harry Truman and Herbert Hoover first conceived the idea. Over the years that followed - and to this day - the presidents relied on, misunderstood, sabotaged, and formed alliances with one another that changed history. The world’s most exclusive fraternity is a complicated place: its members are bound forever because they sat in the Oval Office and know its secrets, yet they are immortal rivals for history’s favor.

    Where does The Presidents Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I wouldn't be able to give it a rank per se, it's an enjoyable listen - not the best audiobook I have listened to simply because I have interests in other topics as well


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Presidents Club?

    Understanding the interpersonal relationships that these men had with each other and how they called upon each other's help during times of crises


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When JFK was assinated and how LBJ called upon Ike for support. It was truly touching to see the country coming together.


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

    no, given the fact it is an 18-hour long book, there is no way I could listen to this in one sitting! It took me around 3 weeks to complete the entire audiobook!


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time to listen to if you are interested in American politics.

  • Classical Mythology: The Greeks

    Through the study of these time-honored myths, the Greek heroes and gods - including Heracles, Zeus, Achilles, Athena, Aphrodite, and others - leap from the page in all their glorious splendor. The following lectures are not only an entertaining guide to Greek mythology, but a fascinating look into the culture and time that produced these eternal tales.

    Overall

    I think Peter Meineck does a wonderful job here of explaining Greek mythology. I can now confidently approach literature which have Greek mythological references and have a greater appreciation and understanding of its origins. There are 14 lectures where Prof. Meineck covers the major greek mythological characters. A wonderful discovery of learning if you ask me!
