    An irreverent, hilarious insider's look at big-time NCAA basketball, through the eyes of the nation's most famous benchwarmer and author of the popular blog ClubTrillion.com (3.6m visits!). Mark Titus holds the Ohio State record for career wins, and made it to the 2007 national championship game. You would think Titus would be all over the highlight reels. You'd be wrong.

    Story

    Many very funny stories. Overall enjoyable and nice mindless listening. Interesting hearing details about the guys you watched play for OSU for the last few years. And I have been a Thad Matta fan, but am a bigger one now.. You are reminded often that the writer is about 23 years old as he regularly says things like, "I never heard something like this, or saw so much of that, etc.. in my Entire Life." If you love OSU like I do, it is a good, fun, albeit raunchy listen. Oh, as for the raunchy, don't get it for your grandma or 8 year old. Author states his audience is 16-34 year old males, and there are many sex, body part and bodily function stories..

  • Then We Came to the End

    No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts. Every office is a family of sorts, and the Chicago ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best. The characters in Then We Came to an End cope with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, secret romance, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.

    Story

    Interesting book. In the beginning you think it is just going to be a knock-off of The Office. It turns out to be more. The author takes an interesting and generally entertaining look at the workforce. He takes it from the perspective of a narrator within the office for most of the book.

    The book has some excellent humor but can drag at a few points. It ends well and you will be happy you read it.

    As for the audio book, I listened to most of it and read the book itself. The items removed from the audio book are questionable at best. At least two key stories from the book were deleted from the audio book.
