    Al Roker’s aha! moment came a decade ago. He was closing in on 350 pounds when he promised his dying father that he wasn’t going to keep living as he was. That led to his decision for a stomach bypass - and his life-changing drop to 190. But 50 of those pounds gradually crept back until he finally devised a plan, stuck to it, and got his life back. Never Going Back is Roker’s inspiring, candid, and often hilarious story of self-discovery, revealing a (now slimmer) side of his life that no one knows.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a Disney stock holder or a person thinking of purchasing stock. I think they need to know how crazy this good company was once run.


    What other book might you compare DisneyWar to and why?

    None other.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Patrick Lawlor?

    He isn't the best and I wouldn't listen to a book because he was reading it but it wouldn't stop me from purchasing.


    If you could give DisneyWar a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The Insanity

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle of the pack.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made the CIA more of the hero than the campus.


    Which character – as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips – was your favorite?

    John Clark


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Who gave the Campus a license to kill? Oh that's right our hero Jack Ryan. I think Jack Ryan's original idea has gone astray. Jack needs to take ownership of the monster he has created and put it to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm tired of China being the enemy.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think the story could have been deeper in content.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Ron says: "Good McMurtry, not great"

    Would you try another book from Larry McMurtry and/or Annie Potts?

    Yes


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    ??? - I'm sure something from Mcmurtry, Puzo, or Stephen King


    What about Annie Potts’s performance did you like?

    I soon forgot it was Annie Potts reading and simply felt the charactor thru her performance.


    Do you think Telegraph Days needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No
