    For more than 40 years, communism held eight European nations in its iron fist. Yet by the end of 1989, all of these nations had thrown off communism, declared independence, and embarked on the road to democracy.

    Learned about many things I was unaware of and it was presented in a very entertaining manner and made a serious subject very human and enjoyable.

    What different kinds of books are in the New Testament? When, how, and why were they written? And why did some books, and not others, come to be collected into what Christians came to consider the canon of scripture that would define their belief for all time? With these 12 lectures, get a fast-moving yet thorough introduction to these and other key issues in the development of Christianity.

    Story

    I have avoided more of these courses, not because of the wonderful information contained within, but that accursed APPLAUSE at the end of each lecture. Occasionally, I cruise through the titles, almost give in and buy another one...then I remember how painful it was to dread the end of a lecture and have to listen to the clapping.

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Ramon says: "Great story with nice twists"
    "Ho hum, seriously convaluted"
    Overall

    Being an avid Baldacci fan, I thought I had missed something in my first reading of “Hell’s Corner,” so I waded through this book a second time. The only thing different the second time through was the STUPID gunfire sound effects didn’t scare the wadding out of me. The rampant personal guilt trips...”It’s all my fault that so-and-so is...” were a tad much. This book was very disappointing!
