    How remarkable that an Italian living in the 15th and 16th centuries should lend his name to a word still in common usage in the English language today. Nicolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) wrote only one major work as a gift for his ruling Prince, Lorenzo de Medici. Machiavelli held office as a senior civil servant for 14 years until the downfall of the Republic in 1512. No longer officially employed to impart advice, instead Machiavelli poured out his ideas and resentment in his writings.

    Awesome book. Gave incredible insight to what is going on in today's politics. Must be required reading for members of congress. Ian Richardson reads the book as if he has memorized his lines and is reading it as if he were reading it to The Prince. His knowledge was worth more than gold. I was sad it was over...

  • The Attractor Factor, 2nd Edition: 5 Easy Steps to Create Wealth (or Anything Else) from the Inside Out

    For the first time ever, one of the rarely discussed formulas for building wealth and achieving success in all areas is revealed in The Attractor Factor. Popular marketing and spirituality guru Joe Vitale argues that those who try hard and fail need to remake their inner beings in order to easily attract success, wealth, and happiness. Many people do the right things but get the wrong results; it's not so much what they do, as what they are inside. The problem for most people is self-sabotage.

    Ok this really works. I just closed a 2.7 million dollar sale! The book has short chapters that flow well. It is a little difficult to take the quizzes (as I am driving when I listen to audiobooks) that he goes over and some of the stuff is out of date. For example, there is a quiz he lists from another person that a website is given that is no longer in operation.

    Joe Vitale narrates the book and his voice is pleasant and he is funny. The bottom line is that I used the 5 steps and they worked. I really liked the fact he gives you several methods to get clear. This alows you to find out which one works for you. He gives lots of enjoyable personal stories. If you want this to work, its all on you. Its like a roadmap. If you chose not to follow the map, you would still get lost...

    The Koran is not only one of the most influential books of prophetic literature but also a literary masterpiece in it’s own right. Universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as revealed to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel nearly 1,400 years ago, the Koran still provides the rules of conduct fundamental to the Arab way of life.

    Thomas says: "A Clear and Sober Reading"
    "Easy to understand..."
    Overall

    I wanted to get an understanding of Muslims and Islam. The narrator is very clear in his speech and is easy to understand. The cost of this is good and is not broken up like other versions were that would make buying it cost ineffective.

  • Intelligence in War: Knowledge of the Enemy from Napoleon to Al-Qaeda

    In fiction, the spy is a glamorous figure whose secrets make or break peace, but, historically, has intelligence really been a vital step to military victories? In this breakthrough study, the preeminent war historian John Keegan goes to the heart of a series of important conflicts to develop a powerful argument about military intelligence. In his characteristically wry and perceptive prose, Keegan offers us nothing short of a new history of war through the prism of intelligence.

    Jay says: "Classic Keegan"
    "Great insight on the value of intelligence..."
    Overall

    Very interesting historical perspective.

    I happened to be listening to this book when UBL had been killed. It was quite interesting to see how things went down and how the intelligence was gathered, passed, read and acted upon. This book goes along books as The Art of War and The Prince.
