    A Sister of the Dark captures Richard and takes him deep into the Old World, to the very heart of the Order, while his beloved Kahlan remains behind. Free because of Richard's sacrifice for her, but unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, Kahlan violates not only prophecy but her last pledge to Richard and raises an army against the advancing horde of the Imperial Order.

    "Not for communists"
    Overall

    This is one of the better books of the series. The pace is typical of Goodkind, meaning it can run a little slow at times, but overall good. The narrator does a good job giving life to the characters, although someone with such a deep voice reading for female characters is a bit distracting at times when he raises up an octave.

    The second half focuses on the order and a thinly veiled attack on communism. I still enjoyed it quite a bit and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the sword of truth series.

    This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last 60 years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America's confidence.

    Michael says: "Flawed but Important"
    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    As a 35 year-old reading this book, I found it fascinating learning about what happened in the inner workings of the CIA before I was born. Some of what you read hear contradicts what you learned in school, other tales are just simply unbelievable. This book shows you what we are capable of doing in the name of freedom.

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Greta says: "Get the "Paper Book" instead."
    "Great method, boring listen"
    Overall

    I am a big believer in GTD. However, listening to this on a 600 mile trip nearly caused an accident. It is so boring without the illustrations, that I nearly drove off the road. Get the abridged version or buy it in paperback.
