    Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us - an ambitious urban entrepreneur who rose up the social ladder, from leather-aproned shopkeeper to dining with kings. In best-selling author Walter Isaacson's vivid and witty full-scale biography, we discover why Franklin turns to us from history's stage with eyes that twinkle from behind his new-fangled spectacles. In Benjamin Franklin, Isaacson shows how Franklin defines both his own time and ours. The most interesting thing that Franklin invented, and continually reinvented, was himself.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator must really love his peanut butter. If you are sensitive to disgusting mouth sounds, this book is not for you. The Audible-page sample audio is pretty clean and not so ??representative of the mind-numbing 24-plus hours. If you listen in the car or another noisy environment, you will be fine. Otherwise, be warned.??

    Once upon a time, one man ruled America's greatest entertainment company. This is the untold story of his triumphs and failures, and of the revolt that cost him his kingdom.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Excellent reader. I found a few facts to be inaccurate. Overall it would have been good but I kept being distracted by all of the production errors. It is as if they skipped the editing step when producing the audio.??


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Lawlor???s performances?

    Yes. One of the best readers.

    Space is a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer. Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? What happens to you when you can’t walk for a year? Have sex? Smell flowers? What happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible for the human body to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles per hour?

    Kathy says: "Terrific!"
    "Not about Mars"
    Overall

    This could have been titled ???Training at NASA,??? but it was not about Mars, science, or ???the void.??? I counted the word ???Mars??? being used 11 times throughout the whole book. There was no information on the preparation necessary to plan a trip to Mars. Half of the text was annoyingly bracketed in incessant ???note/end note??? pairs.
