    Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter. With her monumental bestsellers Treason, Slander, and High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter has become the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual in years, and certainly the most controversial. Now, in How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), which is sure to ignite impassioned debate, she offers her most comprehensive analysis of the American political scene to date.

    Talk about speed-talking. Coulter could be far more entertaining if she'd just s-l-o-w down. Lots of ideas hitting a listener to the point of saturation. Perhaps the non-Coulter narrated version is a bit better...

    President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

    Overall

    Didn't like him when he was Prez, still don't like him...but I have to say, that after listening to all he had to overcome (okay, he did whine a fair amount), my grudging admiration for the rascal has grown a bit.

    Whether you're Red, Blue, or Purple, it's a good listen and gives one some insight into his style as C.I.C....

This audio flash-card system will have you communicating effectively in the shortest time possible.

    Overall

    The #@%$#^ music in the background is just too distracting to be able to absorb even a modicum of the language.

    Note to editors: those of us who desire to learn a language aren't in the market for background music.

    Note to potential purchasers: save your $$$

  • Take It Back: Our Party, Our Country, Our Future

    The problem with Democrats, Carville and Begala argue, is not ideological. It's anatomical. They lack a backbone. Take It Back is a spinal transplant for Democrats and an audacious battle plan for victory.

    Overall

    Tho they do a bit of a trash job on the current administration (and, deservedly so, IMHO), the authors really turn their guns on the current Democratic party powers-that-be, and their compliance and lack of direction.

    A fairly good operations manual for would-be candidates...and a fairly good review of just-what-the-heck-happened since 9/11 for the rest of us...
