    Story

    This really worked for me. I used it to brush up on Spanish before traveling to Central America. I had studied Spanish in school but never felt comfortable speaking. It seemed overly simple. However I followed the directions exactly. I was shocked at how effective it was. I had the confidence to speak in situations that would have caused me to grapple for words in the past. Successive units quickly add terms and expressions but the pace is amazingly manageable.

    Story

    Imagine a really bad musical performed by 3 actors from children's programming with a very low quality synthesizer. Most of them made me laugh, but some of the lessons made me cringe. My partner banned it from playing within earshot in the first 3 minutes. I gave it a chance. I think it was helpful, but it was an unpleasant experience.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "This book has all my friends laughing and talking!"
    Overall

    It didn't tell me a whole lot I didn't already know, but said it in such an entertaining way that I would rather have heard it from Al Franken anyway. This book owes much to previous work done by other authors and journalists. I think it could even be quoting Eric Alterman's slightly earlier book "What Liberal Media" on many occasions (an excellent no-nonsense book). I really loved the results, and I play bits for other people every chance I get. Don't deprive yourself of this one!

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "Moore's best work so far."
    Overall

    I found this book more articulate and informative than Stupid White Men, and not very bitter at all considering how consistently the Bush Administration, and most of the rest of our elected officials have let us down on nearly every issue since 2000. Actually he sounds a lot more positive than the majority of current events books lately. The first chapter had me laughing out loud.

    My only compliant is that Michael Moore does not narrate his audio books and is a better comic speaker than those who disappointingly did the audio versions of his last two books, they are better off in print. I saw him live last month, and believe me, it is funnier coming from him.

    If you can't understand his perspective try reading The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (new American Edition), Bushwhacked!, and Toxic Sludge is Good For You, these are a little more serious and will enrage you, then read Pigs at the Trough, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, and Dude Where's My Country over again-Funny and uplifting!
