    Legions of fans know Opie & Anthony as the kings of "cringe radio," who dominate an expanding media empire. Since October 2004, their unique humor has been the centerpiece of High Voltage, the channel XM Satellite Radio created especially for them. Then, in April 2006, they took over the key morning drive slot on seven CBS Radio stations. Audible's Opie & Anthony subscription delivers both shows in one hilarious package!

    I will not review this content. Instead I will inform you why you will enjoy the Opie and Anthony Show. To put it simply, it is entertainment. So, why choose to be entertained by these two people? They are a new breed of talk show that does not assume the audience to be dazzled by gimmicks. They also assume that you will not be offended by toilet humor. This is not what their show is about, however, it is a nice departure from sensationalism. You will walk away being informed of todays news. You will have stuff to talk about with your friends that will captivate them. New ideas that can stimulate conversation will start to roll off your tongue. The marriage of talk radio and Audible content has never been more profound. This is a new breed of entertainment. This, my friend, is Audible.

  • A Beautiful Mind: The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash

    John Nash was a mathematician teetering on the brink of international acclaim, but he fell instead into madness. Saved by the love of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and worldwide fame. This is his true story.

    I wish there were more books like this. I was delightfully entertained.

  • Think!: Why Crucial Decisions Can't Be Made in the Blink of an Eye

    Outraged by the downward spiral of American intellect and culture, Michael R. LeGault offers the flip side of Malcolm Gladwell's best-selling phenomenon, Blink, which celebrated impulse thinking over factual knowledge or critical analysis. If best-selling books are advising us to not think, LeGault argues, it comes as no surprise that sharp, incisive reasoning is on the decline, leading our society to incompetence and failure.

    Dave says: "noncritical critical thinking"
    "Great material"
    Overall

    This is a prime example of why the new art of narration should be left to the professionals. Excellent material, however, he sounds like the teacher from Ferris Bueller's day off. The material is definitely interesting, however, he is putting me to sleep.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Overall

    This book was just enough to wet my appetite. I have to buy the unabridged version now. I enjoy both the physical and audio books. However, laying down on the couch, staring into the fire, I was able to envelop myself in the words of the text. When reading, you loose the ability to let your mind run wild. I felt as if I was drawn into the world along side the characters as they embarked upon their journey. In hollywood, you are limited to the visions of the director. In your mind, you are only limited to extent of your imagination. At the end of the book, I felt like I was just coming back home after having been on an amazing journey.

  • Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America

    Can man live on fast food alone? Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For 30 days, he ate nothing but three "squares" a day from McDonald's as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary won him resounding applause and a worldwide release that broke box-office records. Audiences were captivated by Spurlock's experiment, during which he gained 25 pounds, his blood pressure skyrocketed, and his libido all but disappeared.

    Jeff says: "A must-read!"
    "A must listen"
    Overall

    I have bought many books. Quite simply, Morgan is excited about his book. Just listen to a brief sample and you will hear it in his voice. He will excite you too. As the world of audible books grows, narrators must take his example. This is one of the few books that are going into my A list. I can't wait to see what he will do next!!!!

    It's the perfect listen for your morning commute! In the time it takes you to get to work, you'll hear a digest of the day's top stories, prepared by the editorial staff of The New York Times. Each edition includes articles from the front page, as well as the paper's international, national, business, sports, and editorial sections.

    Overall

    Life on the go just got easier. For many of us, we never get a chance to sit and read a newspaper. Time is money. Now, Audible makes it possible to listen to the newspaper while on the go. Technology has made it possible to remain on the go ad still enjoy our paper with a coffee (however no table and chair needed).
