    Most people don't know that Benjamin Franklin almost killed himself trying to electrocute a turkey; the Wright brothers were not the first to fly an airplane; there was a 14th state that the original 13 wouldn't let join the Union; and that Benedict Arnold helped save the American Revolution. All this and more is revealed in That's Not in My American History Book.

    Overall

    It would be easy to say this is a book about US historical trivia but that would deprecate the accomplishments of men and women who, while mostly forgotten by history, helped shape our country in profound and positive ways.
    This book was easy to listen to with my Garmin GPS when driving.

  • How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life

    In 1982, Peter Robinson was hired as a speechwriter in the Reagan White House. One of a core group of writers who became informal experts on Reagan, Robinson absorbed not just the president's politics but his manner and way of carrying himself. And the example Reagan set, as a confident, principled, generous-spirited older man who inspired those around him, molded Robinson just as he was coming into his own.

    James says: "Fantastic!"

    Overall

    A heartwarming and often times touching first hand account of the events during the Regan Presidency. I especially appreciated the little stories that never made it into the news. I found myself laughing at Regan's favorite jokes and crying during President Regan's final battle with Alzheimers. Easy to listen to if you use a Garmin GPS while driving (like me) and I appreciated the author reading his own book. He's a very good writer. No wonder why Regan had him on his staff.

    Who's Looking Out for You? is a book that boldly confronts our worst fears and biggest problems in a post-9/11, post-corporate-meltdown world. Its sage, candid advice on regaining control and trust in these troubled times will resonate with the millions of readers and viewers who have come to believe in Bill O'Reilly as the man who speaks for them.

    Charles says: "Balancing The Reviews"
    "great book"
    Overall

    Once again, the time flew by while listening to this book as it did for me with Culture Warrior. I especially enjoyed the insights into Bill O's past and the honesty as Bill spoke about his own mistakes. There are lessons to be learned from these words.

    Bill O'Reilly is the very embodiment of the idea of a Culture Warrior, and in this book he lives up to the title brilliantly, with all the brashness and forthrightness at his command. He sees that America is in the midst of a fierce culture war between those who embrace traditional values and those who want to change America into a "secular-progressive" country.

    Earleen says: "conservative centrist"
    "Great Book!"
    Overall

    The time passed by so fast I was surprised when the book was over! This probably was at least partially due to Bill O reading the book himself, which was a plus.

    "Hard to Listen to On my Garmin GPS"
    Overall

    The voice of the reader was hard to hear on my Garmin GPS whileI was driving on the highway. I also felt that the reader sounded a bit boring at times. like a previous review I also found chapters rather void of information. The book is not useless but I was hoping for more.

    Jeffrey Gitomer's best selling work in which he shares his tips on how to be a successful salesperson has a new edition and is now available on audio. He provides motivational advice and practical techniques for initiating, maintaining, and closing a sales presentation.

    Mark says: "Much better in book form"
    "not as good as I hoped"
    Overall

    Honestly I have mixed emotions about the book. There were parts I liked but the author comes off cocky at times which I found annoying. Also, considering the book is over 8 hrs I DID NOT LIKE how the author continually tried to get me to go to his website for more information on various topics. The "Bible" doesn't say "thou shalt not steal; now go to www.god.com for the top 10.5 tips on why stealing is bad"... Obviously the author wants to collect my info so he can sell me stuff down the road. Thats selling I know but it was just a little too much for my tastes.

    Overall

    I listen to audio books when I'm in the car and this was the worst audio I've ever heard. It sounds like it was spoken over the phone. Its ironic that a book about PR would be so badly produced.

    This was a pretty good book for those just starting out and learning the ropes. David is easy to listen to and usually takes nothing for granted choosing his words carefully to foster the learning process. Even though the book is only about an hour, its an information packed hour.

    Born over 2,400 years ago, warrior, thinker, and leader Sun Tzu lived during a time of great internecine conflict in China. A classic of Chinese literature, Art of War reveals the strategies, tactics, and insights that lead to success. Mastery of warfare and the maintenance of power are the most important values in Sun's philosophy, without which there can be no peace or life.

    Scott says: "A True Classic Must Read Book"
    "read the book"
    Overall

    I have to say this book does not lend itself well to listening - especially if you are driving as I was when I obtained this audio book. There are many parts where I had to think about what was being said - not good if your driving. I think to get the most out of the Art of War, its better if you read the book and digest it at your own pace.

  • Guerilla Marketing Weapons

    Too many small and mid-sized businesses offer gold-medal quality and service yet struggle to pay their bills and stay in business. Their only missing component is guerrilla marketing, a method that puts energy where the dreams are. The 100 targeted weapons detailed in this audiobook add potency to a marketing attack and substantially increase profits. Most important, they work for all types of small and medium businesses, and even for nonprofit organizations.

    Michael MacDonald says: "Good info narrated horribly"
    "good review of many marketing opportunities"
    Overall

    The book was a good overview of many different opportunities to market ones services. as for the book reader, I didn't find his voice too hard on the ears in fact the he reminded me of the voice heard at the intro of the old Outer Limits TV series of the 1960s
