    Michael Oher is the young man at the center of the true story depicted in The Blind Side movie (and book) that swept up awards and accolades. Though the odds were heavily stacked against him, Michael had a burning desire deep within his soul to break out of the Memphis inner-city ghetto and into a world of opportunity. While many people are now familiar with Oher's amazing journey, this is the first time he has shared his account of his story in his own words.

  • Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power

    Three and a half years ago, David Sanger’s book The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power described how a new American president came to office with the world on fire. Now, just as the 2012 presidential election battle begins, Sanger follows up with an eye-opening, news-packed account of how Obama has dealt with those challenges, relying on innovative weapons and reconfigured tools of American power to try to manage a series of new threats.

    Where does Confront and Conceal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably in the top three books that I've listened to so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Confront and Conceal?

    This book is so packed with revealing insights from so many Washington and military insiders that no one moment can be singled out.


    What does Robertson Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    So many different inflections that really give you a sense of the characteristics and intensity of the various contributors to this dialogue.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Surprise. I was surprised at the strength and tenacity of President Obama. Certainly a very shrewd leader and far stronger than the media and the "right" give him credit for.


    Any additional comments?

    David Sanger does a fantastic job of fairly and impartially reporting the facts that he gathered for this book (except for his position on the Drone strategy). There are times when you will strongly agree with positions and times when you will get a bit ruffled . . .but that's what happens when both sides are told fairly and accurately. GREAT BOOK!
