  • Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

    • ABRIDGED (18 hrs and 5 mins)

    Story
    (186)

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Lawrence D. Clayton says: "On an equal footing with Helter Skelter"
    "Exceptional Detailed Account"
    Overall

    Bugliosi's latest is a welcome breath of fresh air on a subject that has seen little since the mid 1960's. In particular, Bugliosi crushes Oliver Stone's mythical JFK film as the complete fraud that it was. Anyone having a sense of intellectual honesty on this subject oughtta do two things: 1. Watch JFK, 2. then read this book.

    As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. For almost 50 years, he's been creating some of the most recognizable songs in American rock, but never before has he paused to reflect on the long road he's traveled. Now, he tells the unflinching story of his life, laying bare the unvarnished truth about his wild ride that has spanned across the years.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to My Cross to Bear the most enjoyable?

    Will Patton is, once again, one of the best voices out there. His voice, combined with Gregg's story and Alan Light's literary skills, amount to a Rock & Roll autobiography unlike anything we have ever seen. Gregg comes across as an humble, flawed, rock & roll survivor with a passion for music generated by bass guitar, rhythm guitar, 2 drum kits, and a Hammond B3...no synthesizers here.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gregg is the survivor. His homage to his brother Duane and Berry Oakley show him to be the keeper of the flame honoring 2 of the greatest Rock musicians that ever graced this planet.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    Will Patton is the best voice out there!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep


    Any additional comments?

    Nope

  • The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More

    Our world is being transformed by the Internet and the near limitless choice that it provides to consumers; tomorrow's markets belong to those who can take advantage of this. The Long Tail is really about the economics of abundance, an entirely new model for business that is just starting to show its power as unlimited selection reveals new truths about what consumers want and how they want to get it.

    Jim says: "Good Book, Flawed by Repition"
    "Excellent ground-breaking book"
    Overall

    This book puts to rest the 4 years of marketing I studied in college. BUT, it brings my understanding of effective marketing into the 21st century. A great read, and well-narrarated!

    The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. And so one day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.

    Dan Clements says: "Wow!"
    "One of the best business books I've ever read"
    Overall

    A definite audiobook for any business person. This book is in the top 5 of business books I've read (and I've read them all). This is 2 and 1/2 hours well spent.

    Classic Grisham. A real "page-turner". Michael Beck does a great job of narraration.
