    From the author of The New York Times best sellers Treason and Slander comes an updated Ann Coulter compendium, complete with reader responses and television and talk radio transcripts (Couric, Donahue, Franken). With titles like "Would Mohamed Atta Object to Armed Pilots?", "9 out of 10 Caribou Support Drilling", and "Liberal Pimps for Clintonism", How to Talk to a Liberal covers Coulter's waterfront on her favorite issues and targets, from national security to Hollywood.

    Overall

    Ann Coulter is one of THE MOST talented political humorists around. If, like me, you are an average working Joe, who battles with the challenges of life with honor and as little sniveling as possible.......you will LOVE Ann Coulter! You will laugh until you cry with gratitude that Ann Coulter can so eloquently express the stream of consciousness Right ( with apologies to Jack "Being a Drunk is Really Hep" Kerouac).Both the abridged and unabridged are enthusiastically recommended.

  • 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.

    Joe says: "Best Audiobook of 2010!"
    "Great dirty gossip - Pathetic leftist slant"
    Overall

    The mud held my interest.

    The authors politics, however, are as ingratiating and fawning as can be expected from these beltway boys.

    As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison's searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.

    Overall

    This book is a riveting look at the life of complex man, a man very much a product of (and contributor to) his time. It captures the feel and history of LA in the 60's and early 70's.

    Morrison, debauched, naive, sympathetic, brilliant, cruel, a train wreck in waiting. He was many things....a phony he was not.

    Don't let the length of this title put you off, this is a compelling story. Great writing and narration make this one of my all time favorite listens.

    Boldly original and fully documented, this unauthorized yet definitive biography tells the almost incredible story of Joseph P. Kennedy, grandson of a poor Irish immigrant, controversial founder of a great American fortune, and father of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy.

    "A Great Bit of History"
    Overall

    No matter which side of the political divide you hail from, I believe you will enjoy this work immensely. It gripped me from the start.
    Mr.Whalen's narration is warm and easy.

    I highly recommend this reading,especially to political and/or 20th century history buffs.

    Possibly the funniest series ever!
    John Cleese, Connie Booth, Prunella Scales et al.
    Cleese wrote the first 6 shows with Booth (his then wife......who, by the by, is American.) The series was so popular that BBC begged for 6 more episodes. Cleese and Booth (now divorced) got together and brought us 6 more gems of comic genius.
    The Major, Manuel ( who narrates the series in letters to his Mom ), Chef......they are all here! To my surprise I found that I enjoyed the audio version more than the televised show.
    If you are serious about funny, you will get the whole series post haste!
    I already have these. You lucky Audible Listeners!

    Like a car alarm, bagpipe music, or a doorbell ringing in the middle of the night, hearing this all-new audio edition of The Bad Beginning will only upset you. This unique multi-voice recording brings the first book in Lemony Snicket's alarming A Series of Unfortunate Events to such terrible life that no one should really have to experience it.

    In this follow-up to his best-selling expose about Saudi Arabia's support of global terrorism, Dore Gold, a former ambassador to the United Nations, reveals how the United States faces a dangerous world filled with terrorists and troubling regimes because the United Nations has created a global crisis with its moral relativism.

    Eunice says: "Essential"
    "U.N.: Ally of Tyranny and Chaos"
    Overall

    Why did "The Killing Fields" Pol Pot never face a tribunal?

    Why didn't the UN take action on Rawanda, Somalia, or much else?

    Dore Gold (author of the excellent "Hatred's Kingdom") writes a very timely book. A very profound book. Moral Equivalency is not tolerance, it rings the death knell of Western Civilization.
    Gold answers the questions and puts forward a strong case that The U.N. is not benign.
    This book is a News Hound's delight.
    Robertson Dean narrates perfectly.Buy this book! You'll be glad you did!

    A drama of psychological terror inspired by the classic silent film of the same name - a witty, literate, and chilling study of paranoia by Peabody Award-winning audio dramatist Yuri Rasovsky and a magnificent cast. "I thought it would be an interesting challenge to make an audio version of a silent film," says the writer. The challenge is to tear yourself away from this enthralling production!

    Scary, well acted, great sound effects.Great for a late night listen.
    And (most critical) this is NOT a "Group Hug" kind of Horror Story!
    It is very creepy.
