    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "Enjoyable and inspiring"
    Overall

    Great story and very thought provoking. I laughed a lot while listening to this book and it makes me want to run real distance.

    Story

    In a night of shattering brutality, three of Washington's most powerful and unscrupulous politicians have been executed with surgical precision. Their assassins, vanishing without a trace, have delivered a shocking ultimatum to the leaders of the American government: set aside petty, partisan politics and restore power to the people, or be held to deadly account. No one, they warn, is out of their reach, not even the president.

    Would you listen to Term Limits again? Why?

    No. If you think that politicians are so evil that they think that the assassinations of other Congressman or Senators is a fine thing - please enjoy the book. I am a moderate so it seems a bit far fetched for me. The authors political beliefs are so entrenched in this book that it is difficult to listen too. I have suspended my reality for the time being to listen but I won't bother to do that again. "Liberals are anarchists", "the people are clamoring for this type of change" oh yes, and Americans in general will be happy to appease terrorists are just a few of the things you must believe to enjoy this story.


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

    could barely stand to finish it

    They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they honorably answered the call. War - it was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys and they came back - those who made it - as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle....

    Story

    I love this series. I have been hoping the early ones would finally appear. My problem is now I am waiting for The Captains. The early Corp books would also make great additions. These are stories I happily read/listen to more than once.

    Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded - but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

    Story

    I left this same review for "The Hunger Games" but it is still appropriate. The story moves quickly but is easy to follow in situations where you might be momentarily distracted from time to time where books written for an adult audience is not always. No subtext or hidden symbolism to track or follow. It still has a great story line that moves along quickly with both action and emotional impact. I bought the whole trilogy and am glad I did. Great listen for the car, running, or the gym. I would recommend this to anyone teenaged or above.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
