A great listen. Very interesting insight into Martin's life and career. My only criticism is that I wish it had been longer.
Great book about a president I knew virtually nothing about.Great story and a solid performance. I gained a great deal of respect and admiration for Coolidge. It's odd that he is not better known.
Perhaps it's not fair to judge a book after decades of hype. It's hard not to expect too much. The story line was good; interesting and somewhat unpredictable. The performance was excellent. Dune was a solid read - just not one of my favorites.
Of the 50 or so books I've listened to this was the best. I wish I could somehow erase it from my memory so that I could listen to it again.
I was looking for the story of government's dealings with the Wall street debacle of the last few years. Unfortunately, the author's bias ruined what could have been a fascinating story of greed and collusion. If you believe that Obama and the democrats can do no wrong, you will love this book. But if you are looking for an accounting of the actual events of 2007-2010 with the credit and blame falling where the events dictate - keep looking. Too bad.
Difficult to rate on a 5 star scale. I wanted to give it a 4.5.
Massive and comprehensive. Filled with detail of little known events. The author's first-hand account of events is incredible. I was reluctant to get into such a long book but it was well worth it. The narrator turned in a masterful performance. My advice to anyone starting this would be to have some historical maps at hand. Great book.
Great story. Very well written. If only Bill O'Reilly could pronounce CAVALRY. The word is used at least 100 times - each time pronounced CALvary. Too bad because it distracted me from a great story. I look forward to his next historical book.
After a slow start this book was very entertaining and completely unpredictable. I've never found Corolla's work very funny before - mostly on TV. This book changed my mind. Be careful, though. It's rough and raw....and FUNNY.
Guilty is full of examples of media bias. Coulter is at her best delivering detail rich examples while keeping it an enjoyable, funny read. The narrator of Guilty did was very good. Not quite as good as Ann herself, but close.
Great story. The narrator got in the way by imposing overdone and inconsistent accents on french and spanish words. Given that the listeners speak english the pronunciations really get in the way. There are errors and at least one restart that was not edited out. The author deserves a rerecording of this work.
