    In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America, from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very well written and read. It was recommended by an eighty year old friend. Fanastic choice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Travels with Charley in Search of America?

    The chapter which covered the desegragation with schools. It still amazes me of the ignorance not to many yeas ago, and still now with some people. It was very disturbing.


    Have you listened to any of Gary Sinise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had not. He was amazing. I have always loved his performances and his read was just as fantastic. Would love more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted too...not possible with time.

  • The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography

    In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. His body of work is arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history, and the power and influence of that work are indicative of the character of the man behind the many storied roles. Sidney Poitier here explores these elements of character and personal values to take his own measure: as a man, as a husband and a father, and as an actor.

    What made the experience of listening to The Measure of a Man the most enjoyable?

    I loved this book. Mr. Poitier has shown us to be humble and proud of what we each have. To appreciate our world and each other. It is amazing everything he has overcome to be where he is.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the triumph!


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

    Mr. Poitier reading this book made everything as it should be. His story is real and you live it with each word he speaks.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Doesn't the title say it all?

    On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still reverberating today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders traveled to Tehran....

    No..too long.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "Frightening Reality"
    Overall

    This book scared the devil out of me. I only hope our government is paying as good attention to this book as the bad guys are. I don't know how America could survive. A must read for all!
