  • Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis

    In Our Endangered Values, Carter offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred.

    "A thoughtful and insightful work"
    Overall

    President Carter does a wonderful job of putting into words many of the thoughts and feelings shared by those of us concerned about the direction this country is taking. Other reviewers here have called President Carter's views those of an "extreme Liberal agenda." As President Carter shows, his views are actually the traditional values upon which this country was founded. It is the current climate of intolerance, political repression and blurring of the distinction between church and state that are contrary to the princples upon which our nation was founded.

    This New York Times best seller is the authoritative guide to comprehending what happened in the 2004 elections and understanding how progressive thinkers can wrest control of America's political dialogue away from the conservatives who have it now.

    This is one of the best audiobooks I've downloaded. Prof. Lakoff does a terrific job of explaining how the Republicans use (abuse?) the language. Truly a wake up call for Democrats.

    From Robert B. Reich, passionate believer in American democracy and public servant, Reason is a guide to confronting and derailing what he sees as the mounting threat to American liberty, prosperity, and security posed by the radical conservatives, Radcons as he calls them.

    "An Excellent Book!"

    The author does a fine job in presenting his arguments. Informative and humorous, well written and well read by the author.

    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    Victor says: "still a winner!!!"
    "Give yourself a treat!"
    Overall

    For several years, "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" has been on my "To Read" list. I am so pleased that I finally 'read' the book by downloading this audiobook. The imagry of Douglas Adam's prose is magnified by the author's wonderful reading of the story. I highly recommend this book, and I intend to download the rest of the "trilogy."

  • Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror

    The real war on terror has happened largely behind closed doors, run by the White House, drawing on secret intelligence and operations around the world. There is no man who knows more about it than Richard Clarke, the former Counterterrorism Czar for both George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the man who has led our efforts against al Qaeda and all other terrorist enemies for years.

    Paul Michael says: "Your Government At Work"
    "An Eye-Opening Book"
    Overall

    After listening to this audiobook, I am more convinced that the the war with Iraq is both foolish and tragic for the future of America. Richard Clark makes the point quite clearly that by entering into an invasion of Iraq, we have made ourselves much more vulnerable to future attacks by Al-Qaeda. His description of the Bush administration's obsession with Saddam Hussein and their lack of interest in bin Laden is sobering. It is hard to listen to this audiobook and not be concerned that we are failing in the war against terror. We need more people like Richard Clark in government service.
