    The Easter Rising of 1916 was a major turning point in Irish history. Peopled by patriots and poets, fueled by a desperate desire for freedom, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I, the rebellion is a story of tremendous power and unique poignancy.

    connie says: "more than the year 1916"
    "Great book"

    "I had wanted to love this book"
    Overall

    I not sure of the full message that Lisa is trying to give, she comes from an educated and privileged background that most people only dream about, I enjoyed a lot of what she had to say however-most people in the US cannot afford to go outside of mainstream medical health never mind go from doctor to doctor to evenually end up at a naturopathic doctor.Most of us could find the time to do some of the suggested tasks if we did not work 50+ hours a week and clean our own homes.
    Most 19 years that are enaging in risky behavior and steal cars end up in jail not give training by a surgeon and a salary of over $100,000.00 to stop. Lisa background enables her to have full connections to A listers and the top medical doctors.
    I do applause Lisa and her husband for their work in understanding medical diseases and prevention.
    The book is great if you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth.

    Fegan has been a "hard man" - an IRA killer in Northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by 12 ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he's going to have to kill the men who gave him orders. As he's working his way down the list, he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too.

    David P. McGivern says: "What an unexpected good read!"
    "Wonderful book"
    Overall

    Loved this book and the narrator is probably the best I have ever listened to.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Did not want this book to end"
    Overall

    What a book, the charactors come alive as you continue to listen, the narration is brillant.
    This book will make you think, laugh, cry and want to do good in the world.
    My all time favorite book.

    The need for change as we get older - an emotional pressure for one phase of our lives to transition into another - is a human phenomenon, neither male nor female. There simply comes a time in our lives - not fundamentally different from the way puberty separates childhood from adulthood - when it's time for one part of ourselves to die and for something new to be born.

    Dale Dreher says: "For Men or Women"
    "Beautifully written and read"
    Overall

    this is a magical book written from the heart.
    I loved it and will listen to it again and again.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "this a great book"
    Overall

    This book is the best, from begining to end its plots keep growing, it will hold your interest.

    Writing from his prison cell in Nazi Germany in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a young German theologian, sketched a vision of what he called "Religionless Christianity". In this book, John Shelby Spong puts flesh onto the bare bones of Bonhoeffer's radical thought. The result is a strikingly new and different portrait of Jesus of Nazareth, a Jesus for the non-religious.

    Robert says: "Compelling but ultimately disappointing"
    "Wonderful book"
    Overall

    One of the best books that I have read, it is clear, opens your mind and get you thinking

    Whispers weaves powerful affirmational phrases written by four of the most inspiring teachers of our time into a evocative musical soundtrack. Their words - spoken, sung, and "whispered" by Grammy award-winning vocalists - will feed your mind and nourish your heart with love, vitality, and abundant joy.

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.
