    When we first meet the young man at the center of this extraordinary and moving story, he is one of 13 children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or any of the things a child might learn in school. And he has no serious experience playing organized football.

    Chris says: "Touching and Informative"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Not only was this a great telling of a heartwarming story of a family openning their arms to a downtrodden unlikely stranger, but it also tied in a great analysis of the evolution of pro football.

A massive conspiracy is unearthed surrounding the centuries-old slave trade, and only Remo can unravel it.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    This is a great cornerstone book on reading people. You will be amazed what you notice. I play poker, and it has already helped notice, what I do wrong as well as others. It also will make watching all kinds of people way more interesting, including politicians, teachers, and litigants on court TV shows. Very useful and entertaining.

    Suppose there really were vampires. Dark, stalking, destroying. They’d have to be killed, wouldn’t they? Of course they would. But what kind of fools would try to make a living at it? In best-selling author John Steakley's vampire classic, one tightly knit band of brothers devotes itself to hunting down the monsters that infest the modern world—for a price.

    Andrew Pollack says: "Great to see Steakley back - and in good form"
    "Novel that puts vampires in their place..."
    Overall

    ...As blood sucking fiends, who can only fake human sexuality to feed and control. John Steakley is one of my favoite writers and story tellers. I am glad audible released his two books to date.

    Gritty, emotional, a great train ride...

  • I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist

    I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all worldviews because it is the most reasonable. The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style. A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to the prior beliefs of doubters and skeptics.

    Steven says: "Faith of an Atheist?"
    "Not great..."
    Overall

    Some valid and interesting arguements, but there are also some major loopholes. Stick with Lee Strobel for some scientific points of views, and C.S. Lewis for philosophical arguements. In my opinion, they do a more tidy job on a subject that should still be something that to which you draw your own conclusions. The book does get one thinking, however...especially when "people", mainly "intellectuals" tell everyone how it is...investigate for yourself, research and weigh the options.

    The world is changing - the government has seized control of almost everything and kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother, Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend, except that the new government is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Jason says: "Quick listen, but seems quickly written."
    "Why do good authors go bad?"
    Overall

    I wish I read the reviews before I downloaded this pasture steamer. Why do accomplished authors try to bludgeon their ways into currently popular genres? I have read several J. Patterson's books, and he's way better than this. This is nothing more than a miserable failed attempt at getting into the “Adolescent Twilight, the supernatural isn’t scary, it’s cool and romantic” genre. I have tried many such books, and I hated them all, and this is the worst, by far.

    The planet is called Banshee. The air is unbreathable, the water poisonous. It is the home of the most implacable enemies that humanity, in all its interstellar expansion, has ever encountered. Felix is a scout in A-team Two. Highly competent, he is the sole survivor of mission after mission. Yet he is a man consumed by fear and hatred.

    George Dean says: "An intense and unusual work, wonderfully performed"
    "One of my favorites"
    Overall

    Armor is one of my all time favorites. The audio adaption is excellent. It's two fast paced Sci Fi thrillers in one, that will leave true Sci Fi fans and casual readers satisfied and breathless.

    This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

    J. Johnston says: "Great Book, Somewhat Misleading Title"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    This was one of the most enlightening books to which I have ever listened. Yet, thinking about it logically, the subject matter top to bottom should have been obvious. It just goes to show the lengths at which politicians and activists go to further their own agenda and power but at what cost? The people who supposedly have the “best interests” of the people in mind are, in fact, destroying them.

    Ever had an inkling there was something wrong with American society and the tendencies of various groups, read/listen to this book and understand why.

    "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole.

But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

    When 21-year-old NYU student Jeff Converse is convicted of a brutal rape and murder that he did not commit, his nightmare has just begun. Jeff is just the latest innocent man to be made a target of the society that controls the underground hell called the Manhattan Hunt Club.

    Lee says: "Story good, narrator ruins it"
    "Good"
    Overall

    Just spent some time in NYC, and this book was a great follow-up. Great story and idea. Saul is a bit wordy though...there is such thing as too much character development of minor characters.
