    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Jeff says: "Great for the stories."
    "Google is Everywhere!"
    Overall

    A fascinating and sometimes scary look into the power and depth of whatever Google is really trying to be. The concept of “cloud computing” where files on our personal computers/phones/whatever …no longer exist….” asks us to place all of our trust in a company that appears to mean well ………. that appears to have our best interests at heart – but when and where have we heard all of that before and what were the outcomes?

    A great – “should/must read” for all of us who use many of Google’s services on a daily basis.

  • Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Any additional comments?

    Almost any book on JFK is interesting, this title is no exception as a re-hash of the largely unaccepted but official explanation of Kennedy’s assassination. You could almost be forgiven for thinking that the book must have been commissioned by some branch of the US government.

    JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James William Douglass is a much more interesting and plausible look at the JFK death and cover-up.

    Bill O'Reilly , Martin Dugard might do well to consider taking on a real project; that of explaining to their loyal readers why the research that Douglass claims to have done cannot possibly be verified.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance?

    Story

    Peter Telep may have studied all of Clancy's books - if he did, he learned nothing - Against All Enemies is not a Tom Clancy book - other than on the title page. Same for the guy writing for Ludlum, I should have known better.

    Audible - look at the reviews! You should consider giving all of us a bonus credit

    Clancy is great every time I listen - as long as he wrote it.

    To Audible customers who love Tom Clancy - You will HATE this book.

    Jason Bourne's nemesis Arkadin is still hot on his trail and the two continue their struggle, reversing roles of hunter and hunted. When Bourne is ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding. In safety, he takes on a new identity, and begins a mission to find out who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is, how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would become if that was suddenly taken away from him.

    Lanny says: "Disappointed"
    "It Is a Deception"
    Overall

    Jason Bourne may be back, but it's a simple fact that Robert Ludlum is, sadly, no longer with us. Ludlum wrote in a particular style with a predictable, yet enjoyable formula. Ludlum must have taken both his style and formula to the grave as both are clearly missing in this latest attempt to trade on one of Ludlum's best characters.. We may have a great movie script but we definitely have nothing approaching a Robert Ludlum novel. "The Bourne Deception" is much more appropriately named than Van Lustbader could have ever intended.

    As a presidential campaign narrows into a dead heat, the Secret Service learns of a catastrophic terrorist plot to assassinate one of the candidates - but which one? Who do they want dead? And can U.S. forces stop the terrorists before millions lose their lives?

    Overall

    Take your bible with you when/if you decide to buy this sad - would be - political thriller. If you thought the film about Jesus Camp" was a great film - you will love this book. If you actually understood the message of Jesus Camp - to be a form of child abuse - you will NOT like this book....if I hear one more reference to the war of "gog and maygog"......be saved and pass the pepto!
