    In We Can All Do Better, for the first time since the financial meltdown and since the worst of the intensifying political gridlock, Bill Bradley offers his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation. He argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course.

    Gus says: "Today and History no BS"

    If you could sum up We Can All Do Better in three words, what would they be?

    Demonstrate how we can get back on right path to greatness if we work together.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Positive view and demonstrates how we can get back on the right path by looking at our own past and apply that to our future.


    What about Peter Ganim and Bill Bradley ’s performance did you like?

    The performance was good could have had more drive and energy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me cry but also gave optimistic view in the future. I can't wait for things to become positive.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the historic facts that can point to a positive future. More facts and less blind beliefs.

    For most couples, a quiet dinner for two at Auberge de la Reine Blanche on the Ile Saint Louis would be just the thing to smooth out the complications in a romance. But for gorgeous Mossad operative Delilah and trying-to-retire contract killer John Rain, nothing is ever easy, and when Rain sees a crew of hard-looking men setting up outside the restaurant, he realizes someone has been bringing her work home with her. Is it a hit - or something even worse?

    It seemed like a good performance.


    Was Paris Is a Bitch worth the listening time?

    Yes and no it was incomplete.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Jacqueline says: "Gripping Page Turner!!"
    "Great story with a matching performance."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    The audio was a great putting together a wonderful story. Especially because reading leaves much of the details to ones imagination. The performance was a wonderful enhancement.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Moving from the mind of Scott to Maggie's mind.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Hard to say Maggie was new and enlightening.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The reunion at the end of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read.

    Your doctor suggests you take a drug to lower your blood pressure, but you’ve read that it has risky side effects for some patients. Do you take the drug given the risks it entails, or do you risk living with high blood pressure? The answers to questions like this can be maddeningly—even dangerously—elusive. Drs. Groopman and Hartzband provide groundbreaking guidance any patient can use to tailor their medical choices to their own physical and emotional needs.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jerome Groopman and Pamela Hartzband and/or Linda Emond and Cotter Smith ?

    Yes: It is very interesting to see how our experience influences current thoughts. It is also very interesting to know the different factors that are affecting peoples thought processes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite character. One observation that may affect things: many of these people were educated and successful; more likely to challenge. I am a healthcare worker and deal with many people who are overwhelmed by these circumstances. They are much less likely to be challenging. Many older folks are submissive without questioning, they need the younger family members that are going to ask questions and do research.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Linda Emond and Cotter Smith ?

    Yes they were quite good I would listen them as a team or individually.


    Did Your Medical Mind inspire you to do anything?

    As a healthcare worker I was aware of many of these things. It was a confirmation of my thoughts and observations over the years.


    Any additional comments?

    We all have to arm ourselves with information on our health issues. We most be empowered to ask questions and take control of our healthcare.
