    A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

    "Masturbatory and babbling."

    Would you try another book from Sam Harris and/or Sam Harris?

    Probably not.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A Brave New World


    What does Sam Harris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have no complaints about the "performance".


    What character would you cut from Free Will?

    The pointless assumptions... Guy.


    Any additional comments?

    A philosophical book on the nature of consciousness (more than anything). I was hoping for/expecting more of a scientific/clinical look at free will. Maybe my fault for not researching a little more before buying. This just made me feel like I was listening to a long winded college kid, under the influence of the weed and musing about nothing. Maybe I should give it another try stoned?

  • She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman

    As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what's under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: "What do I do?" Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from She Comes First?

    If you cut the first two hours I may have given it two stars... Maybe three if I was feeling generous.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're interested in a history of the female orgasm and a lesson in anatomy (written with flowery language and self congratulatory juvenile wit* repeated ad nauseum) you've found your book. If you're looking for practical pointers?... Look elsewhere.

    *See the cover for an idea of what you'll be treated to throughout.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Would you try another book from Seth Grahame-Smith and/or Scott Holst?

    Probably not.


    What was most disappointing about Seth Grahame-Smith’s story?

    Cheesy... Like it was meant to be turned into an action movie or something.


    What about Scott Holst’s performance did you like?

    It was well done, no complaints.

    Marsalis is one of a new breed...literally. Genetically engineered by the U.S. government to embody the naked aggression and primal survival skills that centuries of civilization have erased from humankind, Thirteens were intended to be the ultimate military fighting force. The project was scuttled, however, when a fearful public branded the supersoldiers dangerous mutants, dooming the Thirteens to forced exile on Earth's distant, desolate Mars colony. But Marsalis found a way to slip back.

    L. says: "WOW, Morgan Does it again!"
    "Gritty/dark-ish libertarian sci-fi..."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Thirteen to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    The only thing that wasn't great was some of the female voices. Still much better than I could have managed though.


    Any additional comments?

    A sometimes dark look at human nature and the dangers of authority/power set in a fun sci-fi story.
