  • The Hitler I Knew: Memoirs of the Third Reich's Press Chief

    When Otto Dietrich was invited in 1933 to become Adolf Hitler's press chief, he accepted with the simple uncritical conviction that Adolf Hitler was a great man, dedicated to promoting peace and welfare for the German people. At the end of the war, imprisoned and disillusioned, Otto Dietrich sat down to write what he had seen and heard in 12 years of the closest association with Hitler, requesting that it be published after his death.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was a British man who narrated this book and his handling of English was excellent, meaning I could listen to him for hours, as long as he veered away from German names. Problems appeared whenever he tried to say any kind of German name - even the really easy ones - and just plundered his way through. In the second half of the book, the names got thicker and their mispronunciations got to the point of distraction. How bad was it? Even "Isar" stumped him. It's a good book though and deserves to be re-recorded with a defter handle on German names. Again, the narrator was excellent for English overall and I would consider any other work of his for non-German topics.

    The first third of the book dwells too much on feelings. The second third gets into the nitty-gritty of the impact on the author's life due to many external things. The final third gets into some new ground and is worth the effort to reach. This title is very much worthwhile because it tries to build a complete circle of cause and effect in a distinct manner.

There are new between life sessions with astounding claims of contact with the afterlife, with experiencing God and understanding life's journey.

    In this engrossing and enlightening debut, Blake Healy shares the story of his unusual gift. Having been born with the ability to see angels and demons as regularly and clearly as anything else in waking life, his journey has been one of unique perspective and unique challenge. It is an amazingly clear view into the realm of the spirit, as well as a true testament to the power of living a life in pursuit of deeper relationship with God.

    Would you listen to The Veil again? Why?

    Yes, and that's unusual for me as I have a voracious appetite for new audio content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    If you've ever seen the original Ghostbusters movie and recall the see-through green creatures munching on things, then this is what I think was being described by the author in some coffee shop.


    What does Blake K. Healy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The book itself was excellent, but the hours-long radio-show-like commentary after the book was even better. I think the commentary part is exclusive to the audiobook and it involves three or four friends, including the author.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was extremely pleased to have found a title which really stands out from the abundant, mushy, lookalike crowd out there in this category.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe that this title will become a thought-leader for its category soon. It deserves it. The ebook is currently available to Kindle Unlimited customers for free, so if you're on the fence and belong to KU, then check it out that way, but the author's own reading is great. Again, the post-book commentary is something not to miss, so, if you can afford it, just go for the audiobook. To the author: GREAT JOB!

    In You're Trying Too Hard, Joey Lott explains exactly that - you are trying too hard, and you will never achieve your goals precisely because you already are freedom. Stop trying everything under the sun to bring yourself to true enlightenment. Stop searching for wiser, more special teachers. Stop worrying about lineage and ego and diet and the self. Stop everything. Remain only with direct experience, and let true clarity at least reveal itself.

    Take any concept that you value and imagine someone telling you that it doesn't matter because it doesn't exit, then repeat that process for 95 minutes, and you have the content of this title. What I don't understand is how there are so many favorable reviews for this title, unless...

    Circle of Treason is the first account written by CIA agents who were key members of the CIA team that conducted the intense "Ames Mole Hunt." Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille were two of the five principals of the CIA team tasked with hunting one of their own and were directly responsible for identifying Ames as the mole, leading to his arrest and conviction.

    The monotone voice really wore me down. I was hoping for a lot more detail, but that was dashed once I realized the book was written by an actual CIA employee, so it was heavily stripped of essentials, likely due to security. I expected much more.

    This work of speculative nonfiction combines meticulous fact-finding from historian/researcher Richard M. Dolan and forward-leaning scenarios from journalist/screenwriter Bryce Zabel on the world's most mind-bending subject. The authors predict radical changes after official acknowledgment that at least some UFOs are intelligently controlled craft from somewhere other than Earth.

    In 1942, the Brooklyn-born Erickson was a millionaire oil mogul who volunteered for a dangerous mission inside the Third Reich: Locating the top-secret synthetic oil plants that kept the German war machine running. To fool the Nazis, Erickson played the role of a collaborator. He hung a portrait of Hitler in his apartment and "disowned" his Jewish best friend, then flew to Berlin, where he charmed Himmler and signed lucrative oil deals with the architects of the Final Solution.
