    This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

    Overall

    Thomas Sowell has again shown that he is a think tank of our age. His wisdom and logic cannot be defeated at face, as shown by Elton's weak criticism. One can get away with demagoguery on a TV clip or sign waved in a demonstration, but lay out your argument paper simple terms it becomes obvious that Thomas Sowell's logic cannot be refuted...

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Overall

    This has to be one of my all time favorite novels!

    There is a reason this book as been voted to be one of the most influential books in the last century. Though I do not agree with Ayn Rands phiopsophy of objectionism, she has a profound debt of understanding of the nature of man that is displayed through the various of characters in this book, that made it gripping.

    But if your prefer wrestling or a 30min TV show that gets to the plot in that time, and find that to fit your attention spand then this book is not for you.

    More than 40 speeches - considered among the greatest of all time - comprise this marvelous collection. All the works you'll hear are unabridged, and the most contemporary are live recordings. Included are speeches by Susan B. Anthony, Joan of Arc, Winston Churchill, Jefferson Davis, Amelia Earhart, and John F. Kennedy.

    "Jimmy Carter & Clinton's speeches must be a joke!"
    Overall

    Likes:
    Most people are not aware of the great leaders of history! If more people listened to the inspiring speeches from great leaders such as Churchill, Kennedy and Martin Luther and M.L.King, and read some history; they would not stand for the double speaking, spineless, self serving, and quisling like, empty suit politicians in the house and senate that keep getting re-elected!

    Dislikes:
    To include Jimmy Carter hopeless speech and a 10 self indulgent fluff speech by Bill Clinton, is utterly laughable, in the light of the giants, while not including the actual speech by Ronald Reagan's "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." Instead, the CD has a two-minute segment from an American TV address in which he tells of seeing the Berlin Wall.

    The one thing it shows is the political leanings of the people that put this audio book collection together....
