  • Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

    Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work - just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up.

    I found this book somewhat laughable. I wondered when they were going to suggest a tinfoil hat. Seriously strange.

If she can get to Nashville and find her momma, then all that she promised will come true: Lulu will be a star. Daddy will come to live in Nashville, too. And her family will be whole and perfect.

    Story

    I have read many "end times" books. it's interesting to read the different interpretations of change. "alas babylon" is a character study with heart. the" surviving home" series condems others for looting, killing, when the heroes do the same things. right is on their side. this book......goes into such minute detail that I am surprised the heart and respiration are not given.

    as with many end times stories, the main character is a somewhat two dimensional figure, saving the others. maybe I slept thru the nuances of his person.

    it just didn't resonate with me.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots is a harrowing story of survival after the destruction of the electric grid and nearly every electronic device in the country. Jonathan Hollerman paints a vivid and disturbing picture of society falling apart after an Electromagnetic Pulse attack against our nation.

    Story

    If 'Christian' gets to the deserted store first, before the "looters", and packs off with thousands of dollars in goods, isn't the Christian the first looter? These characters believe they are superior... and they are not. Maybe three stars are too many?

    I've read lots of "end times" books. The best is "Alas Babylon". It doesn't bombard with product names and gun types.. and has a deep sense of humanity that this effort does not convey.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    No electricity. No running water. No food. No end in sight. If life as you knew it changed in an instant, would you be prepared? In A. American's first novel, Going Home, listeners were introduced to Morgan Carter, the resourceful, tough-as-nails survivalist who embarks on a treacherous 250-mile journey across Florida following the collapse of the nation's power grid. Now reunited with his loving wife and daughters in this follow-up to Going Home, Morgan knows that their happiness is fleeting, as the worst is yet to come.

    Story

    Good series, good story. Narration leaves a little to be desired, but didn't ruin the book.'
    I have hundreds of audio books and not every narrator can be Will Patton!

    The series is a bit addictive. I read all three in a short time, and look forward to the June release of the final chapters. It's a little annoying that the author decided to turn the final book into two books.. seems like a bit of a money grab. (shrug) I think I got the first one for free, so it's a wash in my opinion.

    Hirsi Ali tells the stirring story of her search for a new life in America in this vivid philosophical memoir, picking up where Infidel left off. Nomad is a portrait of a family torn apart by the clash of civilizations. But it is also a touching, uplifting, and often funny account of one woman’s discovery of today’s America.

    Great listen! While she does have an accent, it adds to the richness of this book!

    Also, read "Infidel" first. Both books are outstanding.

    His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

    Daniel Beck says: "Start here if you are new to Jack Ryan."
    "My first and LAST Tom Clancy novel"
    Overall

    It is difficult for me to believe this author is so popular. I would not recommend this book, unless you are already a diehard Clancy fan. In addition, the narration is deadly dull. Compare this narrator to Will Patton or Raul Esparza and you will see the incredible difference.

    Clancy does weave a good story, but chacters are predictable and sometimes even silly. I started to wonder about this when our hero picks up a total stranger, hitchhiking.. then pays nearly no attention to her behaviour. COME ON!

    I won't finish the book. This was a wasted credit for sure.
