    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Rick Just says: "Dangerous Religion"
    "They say aloud what most people are thinking"
    Overall

    I found this book to be facinating. I have been thru at least 3 different religions and i can tell you none of them " filled a void" . this author speaks to that little voice in your head That tells you that what you are hearing from a priest, bishop, rabbi, or what ever just seems off. and he backs it up with good plain undeniable logic. But remember belief in anything is an entirely personal CHOICE. Even if that thing is nothing at all.

    Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.

    Dave says: "It's a must."
    "Anything Napoleon Hill is a Must Read!"
    Overall

    this is the book that started it all for every Success teacher/guru . It is the cornerstone and the standard to which all self help books are based. It is an excellent listen . Worth every credit. This is a must have for your audio library

The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation.

    This was a good book. good characters that are well developed . A decent and believable plot and nice pacing. this is the first book in the dismas hardy series ( first in the courtroom series) there are two other books before this one were he is a bartender. But the author does a good job at catching you up in the series. Worth the money or credits.

Since his treachery was exposed, Tice has been kept under strict surveillance in a maximum security prison. Then one morning, his cell is discovered empty. Jay Tice has vanished - without tripping an alarm or leaving any trace of his passing.

    A User says: "fast and furious"
    "fantastic and fast paced!"
    Overall

    This was a very good book . excellently written , fast paced , and totally enjoyable. The characters were well developed and the plot believable. Gayle has written three of the Robert ludlum books in the "covert one" series and her continuations of his work were much better than the other authors that tried to continue the series.This book is a testament that she has learned from the master from this genre. get this book you will definately enjoy it.

    Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board.

    This is the author we have been looking for the continuation of this series. This is the best story i have listened to in this series since Ludlum passed away. I too, definately hoped that this author continues to write for the series as this story was excellent and a fantastic read.
