    For the first time ever, the complete founding documents of the United States of America are here in one unabridged recording. Sam Fink, award-winning author of the highly acclaimed illustrated book of The Declaration of Independence, provides concise introductions.

    Story

    This book simply and clearly breaks down what these three documents meant to the founding of our country in such a way that it becomes obvious to the listener/reader what we should expect from our government. Listen to this and you will see that we deserve the best government possible and that it is our duty to make sure that governing body stays inline, with its original intentions intact. These are NOT outdated documents. Students from elementary on should learn and discuss them, starting with this book!

    In the Fall of 2006, Dean Karnazes, known as "the Lance Armstrong of the running world", took on the ultimate challenge: running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Dean set off in a caravan packed with fellow runners, with nothing more than a roadmap and a determination that defied all physical limitations.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to 50/50 the most enjoyable?

    I have read or listened to all of Dean Karnazes' books. I like the warmth, humbleness, and down-to-earthiness of the guy. And he's funny! My kids enjoy listening to his stories too. He treated the people he met in each of the 50 marathons with kindness and appreciation. That's really something!


    What other book might you compare 50/50 to and why?

    Ultramarathon Man because it talks about various events and people throughout his journey.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say yet.


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

    It's really not about the running.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked hearing Dean read his own books and convey his voice in his work so honestly.
