    Story
    (188)

    Best known to the world as the actor who created the legendary Mr. Spock in the cult television series that launched the Star Trek phenomenon, Leonard Nimoy has written the definitive Star Trek memoir. In this long-awaited autobiography, Nimoy opens up to his fans in ways the Vulcan never could.

    Mika says: "Excellent."
    "In honor of Spock & Nimoy, lend them an ear."
    Overall

    Was a fun listen, always comforting to hear Nimoys voice and his almost delusional rants with Spock.
    focuses mainly on his Star Trek feelings and work and little of his general biography. Good for ST fans and Nimoy/Spock admirers.

  • A History of the Middle Ages

    A History of the Middle Ages is the amazing story of European man in transition. It is a dramatic chronicle of 1,000 years of political, social, and economic transformation beginning with the dissolution of the classical Mediterranean civilization and ending with the first flowering of the Renaissance. It is also the story of two new religions, Christianity and Islam, both of which were destined to dominate the mind of every person in those new civilizations arising in their wake.

    Theresa says: "A Stunning Achievement"
    "Excellent Overview: A Good Start"
    Overall

    I found this book to be an excellent start for one that has limited knowledge of the Middle Ages. It covers a lot of ground, and frankly will leave you lost if you try and grab onto every word. Its best treated as an encyclopedia of sorts. If only the chapter listing was listed properly it could indeed serve this function.

    Focused heavily on European and Mediterranean areas during the period. There is no mention of Asians, Africans or Indigenous Americans at all. Glanced over Islam and went heavily into Christianity. This is not a knock, there is some cross over but if you want to read about Islam's influence in depth, you will need to supplement.

    The readers clinical/scholarly voice did not irritate me as it did others.

  • The Revolution: A Manifesto

    Story
    (166)

    In The Revolution, Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has exposed the core truths behind everything threatening America, from the real reasons behind the collapse of the dollar and the looming financial crisis, to terrorism and the loss of our precious civil liberties. In this book, Ron Paul provides answers to questions that few even dare to ask.

    Sierra Bravo says: "Worth your time"
    "I wasnt a fan or cared much for Dr. Paul"
    Overall

    I wasnt a fan or cared much for Dr. Paul, prior to a few weeks ago. I was mainly turned off by the cackle of his followers annoying second only to the followers of "The One". However now that the elections are behind us and the bail-outs and ever growing national debt and inflation before us, i had the time to properly digest Dr. Pauls book. The only thing i wish is that i had read this a few months prior to the election, or even a year or two before that. My approach would have been much different. I recommend this as a must read to everyone in the United States, everyone.
