    Accidental Playboy is the hilarious, erotic, and provocative memoir of a sensitive post-modern man who stumbles into the dream job of a lifetime. When Playboy magazine tapped Leif Ueland to report on its nationwide search for the Playmate of the Millennium, he was the ultimate confused American male. A self-professed nice guy, he was the last man to be on Playboy's roving audition bus, never mind its official reporter. And yet, something deep within his psyche leapt at the opportunity.

    Overall

    Really enjoyed this one. I'm getting married and leaving all this behind. But it was fun to think about what you would have done if your were him for the trip.

    In his celebrated best seller Catch Me If You Can, Frank Abagnale recounted his youthful career as a master imposter and forger. In The Art of the Steal, Abagnale tells the remarkable story of how he parlayed his knowledge of cons and scams into a successful career as a consultant to businesses on preventing financial foul play - while revealing to listeners how they can identify and outsmart perpetrators of fraud.

    Barbara says: "Financial fraud was never so interesting"

    Wonderful listen. Very, Very, Informative and entertaining. I fell a lot more informed as a consumer after this book.

    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    Steven says: "Best Audible Book Yet"

    Overall

    Wow! I have been raving about this book for weeks. This book is perfect for anyone who likes, once liked, or is fanatic about baseball. But is also a great business book. A complete think outside the box, question everything story. This book rankes #1 on my list all time.

    Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet, contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home. But his melancholy existence forever changes when he becomes the reluctant hero of a dangerous expedition. Browse more Tolkien.

    Nothing more to say than Incredible. Wonderful story, and the Naviation was the best I've ever heard in an audio book.

    The thinking person's comic offers a hilarious new collection of razor-sharp observations. Carlin dives right in, asking tough questions and sharing philosophical musings, serving up an irresistible assortment of quips, probes, thrusts, and verbal ordeals in these unabridged excerpts. Browse more Carlin.

    Overall

    I liked it overall. But some stuff he was reaching for the connection. But if you like other Carlen stuff you'll like this too.

    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    Stephanie says: "Good info, hard to listen sometimes"
    "Great , but long..."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. But, parts of it. I had to suffer through some of the medical explainations. I recommend the Abridged version.
