    Western civilization has given us modern science, the wealth of free-market economics, the security of law, a sense of human rights and freedom, charity as a virtue, splendid art and music, philosophy grounded in reason, and innumerable other gifts we take for granted.

    Michael Kellogg says: "Fascinating and informative"
    "Fantastically Revealing and Fascinating"
    Overall

    I was completely amazed at the depth and breath of how much of Western Civilization owes the Catholic Church and thanks to this tremendously interesting, detailed, and substantiated book, I learned about it. From the introduction of spacing in words, lower case, the father of Aviation, Seismology, Geology, being critically involved in the written introduction of the scientific method, modern economic theory, and so on.

    In a not-too-distant future that is not quite ours, there has been a major scientific breakthrough. It is a way to open windows into the past, permitting historical researchers to view, but not participate, in the events of the past.

    In one of the most powerful and thought-provoking novels of his remarkable career, Orson Scott Card interweaves a compelling portrait of Christopher Columbus with the story of a future scientist who believes she can alter human history from a tragedy of bloodshed and brutality to a world filled with hope and healing.

    Story

    There are very few books I have read that I'll read a second time. This is one of them. When I recommend audiobooks for people, I recommend this book as the first to listen to. Now only if my second favorite book was available in audiobook form (The Proteus Operation by James P. Hogan).

    The authors of the New York Times best seller Protein Power are back with an expanded nutritional program. Now the Drs. Eades have amplified their theory to show how the Protein Power Lifeplan can help fight diabetes, high blood pressure, auto-immune disorder, and more.

    Levi says: "A great intro to low-carb eating."
    "Book is great, audio is the worst Audible sells"
    Overall

    I totally feel ripped off having bought this book. It sounds like they're talking through a tin can (kids' home-made phone setup). It only comes in audio format level 2. Last, it is only an abridged audiobook, not unabridged. Super ripoff.
