    Meet Albert Einstein, inventor and the smartest man to live in the 20th century.

    Overall

    Excellent synthesis of the man Albert, showing his genius for sciences and his attraction to the "gentle" sex makes one understand that even during years of rigid formality full and dedicated love is the prime mover of great minds.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    It is just a sequel of trivial facts, expressed crudely with abundant four letter words.

  • War and Peace

    Story
    (556)

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    Diana says: "Glad I finally decided to read it"
    "WAR AND PEACE"
    Overall

    It is so long that the story becomes insignificant. The narrator's impersonation of the different characters is quite unrealistic.

    How did Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, and Elizabeth Arden choose their careers? Discover how these and other high achievers including Nancy Astor and Frank Whittle, became successful in this unique audio collection from the Amazing People Club. In life, the work some people did brought fame and for a few fortune. Some people chose their jobs because of strong convictions while others are motivated by salary.

    Ugo says: "Amazing Careers - Very disappointing!"
    "Amazing Careers - Very disappointing!"
    Overall

    Lincoln's life cannot be compared with that quite trivial of the ladies mentioned in the book. Einstein's life is not trivial, but in this book the publisher just copied the text of Meet Albert Einstein which I previously bought, Can the same text be used with no warning for two titles by the same publisher?

    An interesting but superficial story. The Time-work story possibly duplicates the Time-work story from Amazing Inventors by the same publisher.

    Overall

    The text is very superficial. It hardly matches the information available on any encyclopedia. The gimmick of pretending to listen to the subject's own words detracts to the credibility and interest of such a concise text. At any rate, onc e this format was chosen, it should have shed som light of how a deaf composer managed to write such masterpieces of music.
