    The English had long dreamed of colonizing America, especially after Sir Francis Drake brought home Spanish treasure and dramatic tales from his raids in the Caribbean. Ambitions of finding gold and planting a New World colony seemed within reach when, in 1606, Thomas Smythe extended overseas trade with the launch of the Virginia Company. But from the beginning the American enterprise was a disaster.

    Working behind the scenes for 18 months, Bob Woodward has written the most intimate and sweeping portrait of President Obama making the critical decisions on the Afghanistan War, the secret war in Pakistan, and the worldwide fight against terrorism.

    Roy says: "Woodward Does a Service"
    "Tremendous !"
    Overall

    I listened to this book 3 times and will probably listen to it again. Fascinating details and so well written.

    In a searingly candid memoir that he authored himself, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Rick Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise in music, film, and television, and his lifelong battle with depression.

    Theresa says: "Late night snack"
    "Didn't like this book"
    Overall

    I was hoping there was some wisdom to be found in this book due to his battle with depression, but heard none. I found it slow moving and depressing.

  • House of Abraham: Lincoln and the Todds, a Family Divided by War

    For all the talk of the Civil War "pitting brother against brother", until now there has never been a single book that traces the story of one family ravaged by that conflict. And no family could better illustrate the personal toll the war took than Lincoln's own. Mary Todd Lincoln was one of 14 siblings who were split between the Confederacy and the Union. Three of her brothers fought, and two died, for the South.

    Linda Lou says: "REVEALING, INFORMATIVE & VERY FUNNY"
    "Enthralling"
    Overall

    Listened to it three times! Well written-

    Story

    Four centuries ago, and 14 years before the Mayflower, a group of men - led by a one-armed ex-pirate, an epileptic aristocrat, a reprobate cleric, and a government spy - left London aboard a fleet of three ships to start a new life in America. They arrived in Virginia in the spring of 1607 and set about trying to create a settlement on a tiny island in the James River.

    Don says: "Interesting story - poor narration"
    "Disorganized"
    Overall

    Hard to follow- poorly organized-never finished it.

  • The Lincolns: Portrait of a Marriage

    Story
    (32)

    In 1974 the historian Fawn Brodie predicted that a "sensitive study of the Lincoln marriage will not always defy biographers". Until now, it has. The only book-length treatment of the marriage was published in 1953, when scholars lacked today's resources and were still struggling with deep-seated prejudices about Mary Todd and Abraham Lincoln. Now Daniel Mark Epstein has produced an incisive and balanced portrait of the Lincolns.

    Elizabeth says: "Fascinating!"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Could not stop listening to it-great history lesson.
