  • Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Overall

    What a great listen. I discovered Anthony Bourdain through his No Reservation shows on the Travel channel. If you've enjoyed those as much as I have, you'll love this. I can't imagine anyone else reading it like the author. From the CIA (the school, that is), to P-Town, to NYC, to Tokyo and back with a supporting cast of dishwashers, waiters, sous chefs and the best baker in the world (with no last name !), you'll love hearing about his life and exploits. Enjoy.

  • Economic Facts and Fallacies

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 48 mins)

    Economic Facts and Fallacies is designed for people who want to understand economic issues without getting bogged down in economic jargon, graphs, or political rhetoric. Writing in a lively manner that does not require any prior knowledge of economics, Thomas Sowell exposes some of the most popular fallacies about economic issues, including many that are widely disseminated in the media and by politicians.

    "No Facts just the author's Fallacies"
    Overall

    The author's prejudices come across from the start and continue throughout his rants in subsequent chapters. Don't waste your time.

    In six minutes, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming. So says Wes Holloway, a once-cocky and ambitious presidential aide, about the day that changed his life forever. On that Fourth of July, Wes put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the presidential limousine. By the time the trip came to an end, Wes was permanently disfigured, and Boyle was dead, the victim of a crazed assassin.

    Nick says: "Too Much Psychobabble"
    "Overhyped"
    Overall

    The book does not deliver on all of the Masonic hype. It's a very minor part of an otherwise interesting yet ultimately disappointing plot. It has a few good moments but not worth the investment of time. I found the beginning of chapters/section pauses and music most annoying. It reads like a screenplay and, no doubt, there is probably a movie deal already. I'll wait for the discount DVD. The old adage that quality is generally inversely proportional to hype rings true for this. If the tons of money spent promoting this went in to better editing and plot twists, we may have something. Two thumbs down.

  • The Teeth of the Tiger

    Charged with spotting terrorist threats, the top-secret "Campus" has its hands full when Middle East thugs and Colombian drug lords join forces. New Campus recruits include Jack Ryan Jr., son of master spy John Patrick Ryan, now President.

    J. Anderson says: "The Teeth of the Tiger"
    "Not one of Clancy's Best"
    Overall

    Not a lot of the usual Clancy attention to detail. The plot tediously unfolds as expected abruptly ending leaving one craving for more. The "dark ops" are unimaginative though somewhat plausible.
