    Did Wall Street cause the mess we are in? Should Washington place stronger regulations on the financial industry? Can we lower unemployment rates by controlling the free market? Answer: no. Not only is free-market capitalism good for the economy, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of one of the top 25 financial institutions, John Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis.

    If you could sum up The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure in three words, what would they be?

    Of all the books I have read about The Financial Crisis that hit us in 2008, FREE MARKET CURE is hands down the BEST! Along with spelling out why it happened, John Allison also discusses the issues that our country needs to address to further promote our economic prosperity. GREAT BOOK!

    One fateful day in 1996, after discovering that five freight cars' worth of glittering corn have reaped a tiny profit of $18.16, young Forrest Pritchard vows to save his family's farm. What ensues-through hilarious encounters with all manner of livestock and colorful local characters-is a crash course in sustainable agriculture. Pritchard's biggest ally is his renegade father, who initially questions his son's career choice and rejects organic foods for sugary mainstream fare.

    Story

    This is a extremely well written story of Forrest Pritchard following his dream in being a farmer on his family land in spite of all the failed farms around him. His own dad was against his career choice. Against all odds, perseverance, and dedicated he turned his dream into a success. The book is extremely funny, inspiring and informative on what it is like being a farmer and also a entrepreneur. I cannot remember the last time a enjoyed a book as much as I did this one. I absolutely LOVE IT!

    It’s everywhere, from commercials to New York Times best-sellers to college (and even younger) classrooms. In fact, pornography has become such a part of normal life in 21st century America that many teens and twenty-somethings have had no more important influence. They are the porn generation, where life’s expectations come from Mouseketeer pop tarts, Victoria’s Secret, internet titillation, and condom-flogging sex education.

    Story

    There is no escaping the TRUTH. Shapiro is 100% correct in his argument in spelling out the moral degradation that we are witnessing in our society and how it impacts our culture (especially for our children). He craft fully outlines how we are being sold out by Hollywood, the Music Industry, our education system, and our government. If you have children, you should read this book. A+

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    Story

    The LONGEST RIDE is a work of ART in which Nicholas Sparks magically brings together two stories. The story makes a perfect circle. The narrators in the audio version is extremely well done. This is one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks books to date. I read only nonfiction unless the author is Nicholas Sparks. He is not only gifted as an author but also has depth in showing what is truly important in our lives-- family, values and our spirituality.

    Why do some products get more word of mouth than others? Why does some online content go viral? Word of mouth makes products, ideas, and behaviors catch on. It's more influential than advertising and far more effective. Can you create word of mouth for your product or idea? According to Berger, you can. Whether you operate a neighborhood restaurant, a corporation with hundreds of employees, or are running for a local office for the first time, the steps that can help your product or idea become viral are the same.

    If you could sum up Contagious in three words, what would they be?

    Most business books start off great with a "Central Theme" and basically repeat it over and over throughout the book. As a result, most books become very dull as you read through them. "Contagious," is engaging, interesting and useful to the very last page. It is one of the most "captivating" business books I have ever read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Contagious?

    That is a very difficult question because the entire book is fantastic.


    Have you listened to any of Keith Nobbs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have been recommending the the audio version of "Contagious" to people because Keith Nobbs did such a great job with the book. His narration I believe sends the book out of the park. Great Job!

    Written by cancer physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Emperor of All Maladies is a stunning combination of medical history, cutting-edge science, and narrative journalism that transforms our understanding of cancer and much of the world around us. Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a novelist's richness of detail, a historian's range, and a biographer's passion.

    Paul Krasner says: "Spectacular!"

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audio book. It is written with such elegance . Dr. Mukheriee has a great gift as a writer. I never knew how vast the historical fight for cancer was before this book. I found this account very interesting. After reading this book you understand why the medical profession is using the current forms of cancer treatments and the background behind it. You also recognize that there is not a "easy cure" for cancer that a trip to Mexico or a using naturopathic means is likely to resolve. I am left with hope after reading this wonderful book that the battle will be someday won. The fight continues.....
