  • The Fighting 69th

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Sean Michael Flynn
    • Narrated By Erik Steele
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    On the eve of September 11, 2001, New York City's famous National Guard regiment, the fighting 69th Infantry, was not fit for duty. Most of its soldiers were immigrant kids with no prior military experience, and their equipment was derelict. The thought of deploying such a unit was laughable. Sean Flynn, himself a member of the 69th, memorably chronicles the transformation of this motley band of amateur soldiers into a battle-hardened troop at work in one of the most lethal quarters of Baghdad.

    Gryphon says: "Impressive and inspiring"
    "Interesting and Inspiring!"

    For an interesting and inspirational listen, this one is great! The transformation of the Fighting 69th from a rag-tag National Guard unit to a crack fighting unit in Iraq is amazing. In the current climate of military-bashing, this book provides plenty of reasons to be grateful that there are those willing to do the job to keep our country safe, while bringing stability and a fresh chance for freedom in Iraq. A good related listen is "Between Two Worlds" by Zaineb Salbi. Her story presents a picture of what Iraq was like under Saddam. If you wonder why we are in Iraq or if we have done anything worthwhile there, these two books will be helpful.

    In the Fighting 69th, there is a temptation to get lost in names, etc., but hang on. It all works out as the story unfolds. The true story here is the unit rather than individuals. Narration is well done. Great listen!

  • Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Andrew Breitbart
    • Narrated By Jeremy Guskin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

    Larry says: "Very insightful!"
    "Do yourself a favor...LISTEN!"

    If I had started earlier in the day, I would have listened straight through! The book is excellent; the narration is great, as well.

  • The Word of Promise Audio Bible - Old Testament NKJV

    • UNABRIDGED (77 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Thomas Nelson, Inc.
    • Narrated By uncredited

    This faithful rendering of the New King James VersionĀ® presents the Bible in more than 90 hours of compelling, dramatic audio-theater format. This world-class audio production immerses listeners in the dramatic reality of the Scriptures as never before, with an original music score by composer Stefano Mainetti (Abba Pater), feature film-quality sound effects, and compelling narration by Michael York and the work of over 500 actors.

    Richard says: "Poor Organization of Sections"

    I've completed the first two parts, and am enthralled. At first, the pace seemed plodding. I tried speeding it up, but it was a bit distorted. However, after an hour or so, I was happily engrossed in the production. I wasn't sure if I would like having music and background dramatization effects, but am loving it. I've been a Bible reader all my life. It's easy to forget that the histories of the OT involved real people living these events in real time. The dramatic effects in this production have reminded me of that fact.

    The production quality is excellent. The background effects do not drown out the reading. Rather, they enhance it.

  • The Cold War: A New History

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By John Lewis Gaddis
    • Narrated By Jay Gregory, Alan Sklar

    Drawing on new and often startling information from newly opened Soviet, Eastern European, and Chinese archives, this thrilling account explores the strategic dynamics that drove the Cold War, provides illuminating portraits of its major personalities, and offers much fresh insight into its most crucial events. Riveting, revelatory, and wise, it tells a story whose lessons it is vitally necessary to understand as America once more faces an implacable ideological enemy.

    Cordell eddings says: "WOW"
    "My son recommended this book - He was right!"

    My eldest son called me while listening to this book on a road trip. He was fascinated by it, and told me to see if Audible had it. The kid has right! This is a fascinating read. The author does a good job of connecting the flow of history from Stalin through Viet Nam through Reagan. Nothing happens in a vacuum. This excellent resource in connecting the dots.
    The narration also was excellent. A winner on all fronts!

  • Witness

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Whittaker Chambers
    • Narrated By John MacDonald

    First published in 1952, Witness came on the heals of America's trial of the century, in which Whittaker Chambers accused Alger Hiss, a full-standing member of the political establishment, of spying for the Soviet Union. In this penetrating philosophical memoir, Chambers recounts the famous case as well as his own experiences as a Communist agent in the United States, his later renunciation of communism, and his conversion to Christianity.

    Susan says: "Great history about Communism"
    "I concur - One of the best on Audible!"

    One of the reviews which sold me on this listen stated that this was perhaps the best book on Audible. I totally concur. Whittaker Chambers is an amazing writer with a compelling story to tell. The narration is excellent. The history of the Communist Party in the US explains some things about the political landscape today. Chambers is an engaging unassuming individual with insights one can only gain through personal turmoil. Pure excellence!

  • The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Lawrence Wright
    • Narrated By Alan Sklar
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    This is a sweeping narrative history of the events leading to 9/11, a groundbreaking look at the people and ideas, the terrorist plans, and the Western intelligence failures that culminated in the assault on America. Lawrence Wright's remarkable book is based on five years of research and hundreds of interviews that he conducted in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, England, France, Germany, Spain, and the United States.

    John says: "Riveting... Sobering... Chilling..."
    "Grateful for such an excellent narrative."

    Such a comprehensive well-written narrative of the events leading to the 9/11 attacks is hard to find, but this book truly delivers! The insights of those whose beliefs and actions led to today's terror networks are thoroughly explored and extremely helpful.

    Looking at the excellent reviews posted here, it is hard to find anything unique to say. Just add my voice to the choir of those who say, "Well done! Bravo!!!"

  • Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Dumb Ox

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By G.K. Chesterton
    • Narrated By Frederick Davidson

    Careless about dress and demeanor and other worldly fripperies, St. Thomas was a man who enjoyed banquets, conviviality, jokes and pranks. His inner certitude aboutreligious truth permitted him to accept the world and its freedom and it endowed him with a childlike innocence. In what many consider to be his best work, G.K. Chesterton portrays St. Thomas in a light that few have imagined.

    GLENN says: "Delivers what he promises"
    "Great biography of St. Thomas"

    Chesterton is a delightful author, and this book is one of his greats. St. Thomas was an interesting character...a great mind. The combination of a memorable subject and Chersteron's rich writing make this a wonderful book.

  • Black Rednecks and White Liberals

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Thomas Sowell
    • Narrated By Hugh Mann
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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"
    "A common sense approach"

    Another great book from Dr. Sowell! This one looks at race issues from all angles...history of populations, education issues, cultural attitudes. All subjects are handled with Dr. Sowell's usual analytical thorough manner, concisely spoken. The narration is excellent. An extremely helpful and interesting listen.

    I thoroughly recommend any of Dr. Sowell's other titles. A particularly timely one is Housing Boom and Bust. Another favorite is Quest for Cosmic Justice.

  • Against Medical Advice: One Family's Struggle with an Agonizing Medical Mystery

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By James Patterson, Hal Friedman
    • Narrated By Kevin T. Collins
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old with the uncontrollable urge to shake his head and his life was never the same again. From that day forward his life became a hell of uncontrollable tics, urges, and involuntary utterances. Eventually he is diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive disorder, and Cory embarks on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist, enduring countless combinations of medications in wildly varying doses.

    Nicole says: "Good Story"
    "Wonderful insight"

    This book was a little difficult to listen to. It opened a window into a troubled mind and body in a very poignant way. It also was most helpful, especially if there is someone in your family or close circle of friends that suffers a similar affliction.

  • America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Mark Steyn
    • Narrated By Brian Emerson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Talibanic enforcers burning books? The Supreme Court deciding that sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state"? The Hollywood Left embracing polygamy? If you think these things can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

    Dave says: "Got to read more from Mark Steyn"

    I thought this would be another "Rah, Rah America" book. Wrong!!!! It is a fascinating study of demographics and the shift of populations. I pretty much listened straight through! I use earbuds, so it makes my ears ring, but it was worth it! Well done, Steyn!!!

    The narration was fine. I had wished Steyn had read it himself, at first, but then fell right in with the narrator. Again, well done!

  • Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One: Second Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Thomas Sowell
    • Narrated By Bill Wallace

    Applied Economics is an accessible guide to how our economic decisions develop. It explains the application of economics to major world problems, including housing, medical care, discrimination, and the economic development of nations. The book is based on an international view of economics, includes examples from around the world, and shows how certain incentives and constraints produce similar outcomes among disparate peoples and cultures.

    Eunice says: "Look at the long's important!"
    "Look at the long's important!"

    Look to the long term...that's the main message of Applied Economics. Dr. Sowell is a master of making the complex understandable. This book covers a number of topics such as rent control, land use restrictions, and corporate tax rates. He follows each through to its logical conclusion, pointing out that politicians often cast votes with an eye only on the current election cycle. We need to make wise decisions based on sound facts, not emotion or sound bytes. Dr. Sowell is a very wise man, and a wonderfully effective teacher! Any book he writes is worth reading! 100 percent!!!!
