    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    Where does Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Surprisingly touching and soulful. and even more surprising, Emelio is a better reader than Martin!

  • Steve Jobs

    Story
    (10338)

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story

    I was looking forward to this biography, since so many people I know had read it. But it is the exulted story of a truly awful person, and I'm not at all sure I can make it through to the end, to see if it gets better and if Jobs is EVER able to gain a glimmer of compassion for another human.

    Sure, its obviously well research and greatly detailed, if boringly, written. I can see why Jobs chose this author to be his biographer. He accepts Jobs' view point, excusing his obvious narcissistic personality disorder and beguilingly reports things he was told...like that Jobs was interested in enlightenment, when nothing in his life suggests he had ANY spiritual interest, unless it was to understand his own greatness or to see if he could exploit it for profit.

    Now I'm sorry I have so many apple products, since Bill Gates is CLEARLY a better human being.

    Monotone narrator does not help either.

    Admit it. You want to BE William Shatner. This collection of rules, illustrated with stories from Bill’s illustrious life and career, will show you how Bill became WILLIAM SHATNER, larger than life and bigger than any role he ever played. Shatner Rules is your guide to becoming William Shatner. Or, more accurately, beautifully Shatneresque.

    Would you listen to Shatner Rules again? Why?

    Very entertaining and surprisingly touching as well. Have always enjoyed his performances, but now admire him as a man as well. Bravo, Bill

    In September 1998, Michael J. Fox stunned the world by announcing he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease: a degenerative neurological condition. In fact, he had been secretly fighting it for seven years. The worldwide response was staggering. Fortunately, he had accepted the diagnosis and by the time the public started grieving for him, he had stopped grieving for himself.

  • Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

    Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. Character driven and dialogue rich, replete with extravagantly detailed scenes, this is the occasion-ally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    excessive verbiage praising the wonderfulness of Hilary Clinton, but no stories that actually demonstrate that she's wonderful. having a hard time getting thru it. there's a great story in there somewhere, but it is dragged down by the heavy, boring attention praising Hilary. but there is NO proof that she deserves all the accolades


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    less glowing adjectives about Hilary, more facts


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    boring
