    I found the information compelling and a "no-brainer" to add this to all our current school programs. I would encourage parents to know this data and share with your administrators and teachers. We have instituted our own morning work-out program before school due to the data. A definite must read.

    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."

    I found David Kirkpatrick's story approach interesting, the material seemed very well researched and presented in a balanced approach. I have followed the Facebook story for many years and enjoyed the factual recap of the story.

  • American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us

    American Grace takes its findings from two of the largest, most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on religion and public life in America, plus in-depth studies of diverse congregations---among them a megachurch, a Mormon congregation, a Catholic parish, a reform Jewish synagogue, and an African American congregation.

    Daniel says: "Interesting Analysis"
    "Interesting but heavy on statistics."
    Overall

    I get that the authors are researchers and it definitely has many statistical moments to slough through, however (a word used often by the authors), there are some nice stories to help with their research. Since it's the first book really of it's kind - good first attempt. Look forward to the follow-on trending and changes.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Story

    Whether you take this story at face value or you just read/listen past the scripture and see the power of the mind for this little boy - it is a wonderful story and should be shared.

    Production quality of this recording was not as polished as most I listen to but was just ok in that respect.

  • The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness

    The challenges and threats we as a nation face today are eerily similar to the conditions in the world before the beginning of the Reagan era. In his famous 1976 speech at the Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan helped define a way forward and strengthened the Republican Party. As we stand at a crossroads once again, we are fortunate to have a blueprint for restoring America’s greatness. Reagan has given us the principles to succeed.

    Story

    I will start by stating that I don't agree with Michael and all of his political views but I find the way he presented his topics and family stories insightful. This is a must for everyone - and push through the topics you don't agree with him on, if any. As he will share his father's words - how do we agree and let's move from there.
