  • A Little History of the World

    E. H. Gombrich's world history, an international best seller now available in English for the first time, is a text dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's achievements, and an acute witness to its frailties.

    Edward says: "an enlightening book; very well read"
    "A pleasant read"
    Overall

    This audio book is like having your favorite uncle sitting beside your bed each night and telling you little segments of history before you go off to sleep. Very pleasant and very informative. This book gives a warm human side to history. If the author had been your history teacher, you would have loved history.

    Buy this book before you purchase a dog. If you have already purchased a dog, then both of you read this book. Great insights about our best friends.

    In I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can!, Tom elaborates on the process by which he is able to sit calmly and patiently, without being distracted, at any time, no matter how hectic, as well as respond quickly (and hilariously) when Marie Osmond faints at his feet on live TV. Haven't seen it? Check it out on YouTube. The man is always in control.

    Chrys says: "A wonderful "read""

    Tom does a great job at "hosting".

  • Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

    Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. Character driven and dialogue rich, replete with extravagantly detailed scenes, this is the occasion-ally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

    Joe says: "Best Audiobook of 2010!"
    "worth the 1 credit"
    Overall

    Eventhough I find politics rather boring this book had some good moments. The one problem is that it makes everyone seem so "human". While I personally like Sarah Palin, this book (if you can believe it) makes it very clear how she was totally unprepared to be president. You'll enjoy the book.

    Beauchamp writes about the pictures Kennedy produced, the stars he made - and destroyed - and the men who did his bidding. She also writes about the Hollywood titans in his midst: William Randolph Hearst, Cecille B. DeMille, and David Sarnoff, whose collaboration with Kennedy resulted in the formation of RKO Studios.

    Must reading for any one who wants to know the true story of the Kennedys and how they got their millions.

    The Kid Stays in the Picture by Hollywood giant and legendary "bad boy" Robert Evans is an intimate and fascinating account of his rise, fall, and rise again in show business. The only actor to ever run a studio, Evans took Paramount from the basement to the penthouse with such movies as The Odd Couple, Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, The Godfather, and Chinatown. An extraordinary recounter, Evans spares no one, least of all himself.

    Amazon Customer says: "Cult Classic - Must be Heard to be Believed"
    "pure entertainment"
    Overall

    If you love hearing stories about how movies are made, you'll enjoy this book. I read the actual book about 4 years ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it. The audio book was more enjoyable.

    A richly detailed and dramatic account of one of the greatest achievements of humankind. At 9:32 A.M. on July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 rocket launched in the presence of more than a million spectators who had gathered to witness a truly historic event. It carried Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins to the last frontier of human imagination: the moon.

    Joseph says: "DeJavous"
    "Very information and well told"
    Overall

    This book puts "human flesh" on how we reached the moon. I found the book enjoyable, informative and rich in details. For me, it answered why we haven't gone further with our space program than we have. The book is a collection of biographies of many people.

    Strange Son is the dramatic story (part memoir, part groundbreaking science) of how the author learned to communicate with her severely autistic son through meeting Soma Mukhopadhyay, a poor, single mother from Bangalore, India, whose own son, Tito, is a genius who is also severely autistic.

    Ingrid says: "Meh."
    "Very Informative"
    Overall

    If you enjoy books about how the mind works, you will enjoy this book. Imagine this: a mind that can both see and talk, but can't do both at the same time. That is what this author is battling with..the complications of the autistic mind that are beyond belief. This book gives true meaning to the expression: "There, but by the grace of God go I".

    Easy Rider, Raging Bulls follows the wild ride that was Hollywood in the 70s - an unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (both on screen and off) and a climate where innovation and experimentation reigned supreme.

    Celia says: "If you studied film in the '70's..."
    "The total info on Hollywood"
    Overall

    This is a great education about the wonderkids of Hollywood. I'm sure the people talked about by the author would love to have this book banned. Sorry, no banning in America. They are just like you and me, except they make millions of dollars and live in unreal worlds. If you like living history and gossip, you'll love this book.

    In this compelling, behind-the-scenes account, former top CIA officer and Cuba expert Brian Latell examines the extraordinary Castro brothers and the impending dynastic succession of Fidel's younger brother, Raul. Exploring the brothers' remarkable relationship, he reveals how Fidel and Raul have collaborated, divided responsibilities, and resolved disagreements for more than 46 years, a challenge to the notion that the little-known Raul has been an insignificant player.

    Every American should listen to this audio book. The author does a great job of explaining the Castor brothers from their childhood to current positions as world leaders. Well written and well read by the narrator.
