    Story
    (120)

    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Regis Philbin - consummate talk show host, man about town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fan - looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of How I Got This Way to be better than the print version?

    Definitely, spoken brilliantly by the REEG himself, no one could do it better, simply wonderful, the story comes to life, like reading could not... I WAS ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT, THE WHOLE JOURNEY... Perfect delivery...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Regis himself, his recall of of precise details is amazing, and very entertaining, with wit and a sense of humor, that you grow to love...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every last one, it builds to a crescendo as the story unfolds, to my amazement...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The REEG as you never seen and how he got that way...


    Any additional comments?

    Simply marvelous, if you love a great, true story, filled with wit, insights and humor, you will love this...

    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."
    "The future of communication..."
    Overall

    Wow, what a great listen... its a great story of the rise of facebook, and its only the beginning... well read by the author... a great glimpse into the futue of communication...
