    In his unmistakable voice and with an insider's eye on history, former Vice President Dick Cheney tells the story of his life and the nearly four decades he has spent at the center of American politics and power. In My Time is truly the last word about an incredible political era, by a man who lived it and helped define it - with courage and without compromise.

  • Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World's Economy

    Story
    (32)

    Raghuram Rajan was one of the few economists who warned of the global financial crisis before it hit. Now, as the world struggles to recover, it's tempting to blame what happened on just a few greedy bankers who took irrational risks and left the rest of us to foot the bill. In Fault Lines, Rajan argues that serious flaws in the economy are also to blame, and warns that a potentially more devastating crisis awaits us if they aren't fixed.

    "A REAL SNOOZER"
    Overall

    A bunch of rambling words for 13 hours. Rajan's book starts nowhere and goes nowhere. i think Rajan was carrying the pages of his book to the publisher and dropped the pages, scooped them up without regard to page order and the narrator read them like that. It sounds like this, blah, blah blah, blah, blah blah. i thought this would be a pretty good book with insight because i listen to Rajan before on TV. he is better with 2 or 3 minute economic bursts. SAVE YOUR CREDIT!!!!!!!!!!

  • Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure

    Story
    (192)

    In the words of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is “an empire on the edge of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we’ve turned our backs on the Constitution. Yes, our country is financially broke, but that’s just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.

    Antoine says: "First Beck Book Read"
    "THE GRIM TRUTH"
    Overall

    after getting thru the history lesson (the first half of the book) Beck starts to hit the true nature of how the GLOBALIST (the billionaires) control you and me by pay to play politics. A VERY SAD BOOK BUT IT IS THE TRUTH. The Billionaires (globalist's) via our politicians( who use inside information to make themselves RICH off of our backs and sweat) are manipulating OUR LIVES thru the media the Globalist's own....Beck calls them the MASTER PUPPTEERS. They put on a happy show in the front stage (your TV) but in the back stage the ugly truth is hidden...theft, fraud, treason, lies, master manipulation of YOU AND ME. And for the most part, AMERICAN'S DON'T GIVE A DAMN. YOU ARE BEING RIPPED OFF BY THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS....THE BOOK IS THE TRUTH.....SADLY....THANKS GLEN BECK ...FINALLY THE TRUTH....

  • American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    "CIA CONSPIRACY? HMMM"
    Overall

    Although i respect Gov. Ventura's opinions because he was one of the only politian that i have seen besides congressman RON PAUL, ALAN GRAYSON that seemed to tell the truth about the US and our future. The book was interesting and i think it was part of the puzzle but it's not only the CIA that conspire they are actors in the bigger picture you need to follow the money...THE FEDERAL RESERVE(no connectionn with our government by the way). this organization has NO RULES, NO LAWS and they manipulate YOUR MONEY IN SECRET. HMMMMMM. anytime you have an organization manipulating money in secret you will get FRAUD, ABUSE OF POWER, CORRUPTION AND THEY ARE DOING IT TO YOU EVEN AS WE SPEAK. The CIA and YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS are pawns to the KING (THE FEDERAL RESERVE...he needed to connect the dots and he didn't....HOWEVER JESSE, thank you for trying to expose the truth. The powers that be are very strong, corrupt and i am ashamed of my government.
