    In Screwed!, best-selling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann lay bare the unvarnished facts as never before and suggest real, immediate, and specific steps to stop those who undermine our interests and take away our jobs. Morris and McGann have documented exactly how the United States is getting screwed, and how to stop it. They dig up the facts, name names, point fingers, and suggest concrete solutions - independent of partisan politics.

    Story

    This book has so much valuable information, however, I found myself wishing I had the book to reference it afterwards. Dick Morris seems like he knows his stuff. This book has so much info about all the different countries out there. I love how when he tells us how we are being Screwed he then gives us a way out. I always remember being told, if you don't have a solution to a problem don't complain about it. The narrator was good but not great.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Story

    Great book. So much of what happened during this time was never shared with me. I did not grow up during this time frame but I had a pedestal view of JFK and MLK. I was amazed with the behind the scenes of the President and his successes and failures. This was a great read. Bill O'Reilly is such a great narrator! I also listened to Killing Lincoln, however, Killing Kennedy was closer to my generation. I can wait for the next book that comes out.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Story
    Would you listen to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again. In fact, I started to listen again to hear things I might have missed the first time. I believe this book is for everyone. It's principles are not area specific. I think families would benefit a lot from this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Towards the end of the book he describes his life while writing a book. He lived in Hawaii and spent a lot of time cultivating his relationship with his wife. The way he describes this time is very intriguing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I knew I would need to listen to this book across many opportunities.


    Any additional comments?

    Do all the things he asks you to do in the book while you are listening to it. I think this would help you grasp more of the benefits to this book. Even if its a little effort. It will help.
