    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Great book!"
    Overall

    I loved this book! It was well written and moving, exciting sports recounts, a love story, and the struggles of the famous athlete. I had no real opinion of Andre but now am a big fan. I felt that I was carried behind the scenes into the mind of a super athlete. I am also very impressed with his "giving back" philosophy. Very worth listening to...great narrator too!

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

  • The Blessing of a B Minus: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Resilient Teenagers

    Mogel’s sage advice on parenting young children has struck a chord with thousands of readers and made her one of today’s most trusted parenting authorities. Now, in a longawaited followup, Mogel addresses the question she hears most frequently: what to do when those children become teenagers, their sense of independence and entitlement grows, the pressure to compete and succeed skyrockets, and communication becomes fraught with obstacles.

    Would you listen to The Blessing of a B Minus again? Why?

    I plan to listen to it at least once a year to remember some of the important lessons. This book gave me a peaceful feeling towards all of the scary teenage years I have in front of me as a parent.


    What other book might you compare The Blessing of a B Minus to and why?

    Blessing of a Skinned Knee - same approach except for younger kids.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Tina Fey is so funny! I also loved the behind the scene view into SNL and 30 Rock.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Really light and easy. A very nice break from some of the more serious topics out there.


    Have you listened to any of Tina Fey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is a great narrator.
