    "I heard you paint houses" are the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran. To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the blood that splatters on the walls and floors. In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews Frank Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than 25 hits for the mob, and for his friend Hoffa.

    Ira Stoll's fascinating biography not only restores this figure to his rightful place in history but portrays him as a man of God whose skepticism of a powerful central government, uncompromising support for freedom of the press, concern about the influence of money on elections, voluble love of liberty, and selfless endurance in a war for freedom has enormous relevance to Americans today.

    Where does Samuel Adams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very informative, but i had a hard to staying with it, kind of dry. I usually listen to these as I sleep, this one, was average.

    The story of the brilliant American Revolutionary War general who turned traitor. Focuses on his many military victories for the colonists, the causes of his estrangement from the American side, and his decision to commit treason and defect to the British.

    Welcome to Gor, a parallel Earth, where social norms are exotic and the way of life is brutal. In the fifth book in the Gorean Series, the deadly assassin Kuurus is intent on a bloody mission of vengeance. His adventure takes him from the caste of the pleasure-slaves, which are rigorously trained in the rules and techniques of sexual ecstasy, to the brutal arenas where humans participate in deadly hand-to-hand combat. He witnesses violence, conflict and uncertainty, as the inhabitants of Counter-Earth are forced to confront their destinies…no matter how exalted or debased.

    What disappointed you about Nomads of Gor?

    The voices used for main charecter sin this book are terrible, irritating at best. I love the Gor series, but this makes it worthless to listen to .
