    Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us?As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I.

    I will likely have to listen to it more again to absorb even more but even though some of the higher concepts of macro-economics were outside if my expertise, he does present it in a way that your average college student can understand.

    A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America's story from the bottom up - from the point of view of, and in the words of, America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers.

    Story

    Talk about a real education!! It's a lot to take in but I can't see how the author could have done it with less content. He backs everything up with references. Court cases, newspaper articles, Senate reports, official government documentation, historical accounts, and much more. This is FAR from the patriotic lessons we learned in school. The knowledge you get from this book is life changing. I may even buy the book to go back through it and highlight the heck out of it.

    Suspense, politics, war, humor and intergalactic finance. A towering masterwork of science fiction adventure and one of the best-selling science fiction novels of all time, L.

From the handful of surviving humans a courageous leader emerges Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, who challenges the invincible might of the alien Psychlo empire in a battle of epic scale, danger and intrigue with the fate of the Earth and of the universe in the tenuous balance.

    I saw the movie when it first came out and it was... OK. The book is far better! I enjoyed it very much. It prompted me to go back and see the movie again, which made the movie better but still... the book far exceeds the film. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    The entire trilogy was fantastic. My wife and I could not get enough. We even watched the foreign films on NetFlix pausing when it caught up with the book. Of course the books were far better... I would recommend this series to anyone.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Both my wife and I listened to this book independantly and both of us, though we can have varying tastes, truly enjoyed it. She then couldn't wait to rent the movie.

    What are little boys made of? It used to be frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, but today it is MTV, ADD, and STDs. So how do parents raise their sons to be respectful and responsible young men in a toxic culture that relentlessly undermines masculine virtues such as moral strength, self-restraint, and respect for women? By letting boys be boys.

    Story

    Our 5yr old boy has been challenging his Kindergarten teacher. He is bright and learns quickly but is very rambunctous. Instinctually I knew that he was just being "a boy" but it was nice to get some confirmation. This book taught me that it's not just that "Boys will be Boys" but as the title says, "Boys Should Be Boys". And I just need to fight for him as well as shape him!!

    Great Book! I would hightly recommend to any Mom and Dad of boys
