    Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America's manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA's Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race.

    What made the experience of listening to Failure Is Not an Option the most enjoyable?

    I am old enough to remember many of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo flights and all the excitement they brought. This book helped me to get a much better picture of the events of these missions and to more fully appreciate the immense complexity of space travel. Gene Krantz wrote this book in such a way that even though I knew the outcome of each of the flights, I still felt like I was on the "edge of my seat" waiting to hear how each of them turned out! The book included enough technical details that it would interest those with a science background, but it explained the details so well that it is understandable to non-science people.

    Danny Campbell was an excellent reader of this book. I had trouble remembering it wasn't really Gene Krantz talking to me!

    Precious Ramotswe has taken on two puzzling cases. First, she is approached by the lawyer Mma Sheba, who is the executor of a deceased farmer’s estate. Mma Sheba has a feeling that the young man who has stepped forward may be falsely impersonating the farmer’s nephew in order to claim his inheritance. Mma Ramotswe agrees to visit the farm and find out what she can about the self-professed nephew. Then the proprietor of the Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon comes to Mma Ramotswe for advice.

    If you could sum up The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon in three words, what would they be?

    I have been a faithful listener of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books for years. I also have the print versions of most of the books in the series, but I prefer to listen because of Lisette Lecat's beautiful narration. I savor each of these books, and I kind of ration myself in listening in order to help the book last longer! I eagerly anticipate the next book in the series.

  • Girl with Glasses: My Optic History

    Being a Girl with Glasses isn't just a style choice; it's a way of life. If you've ever had your specs steam up when walking into a bar, squinted into the sun on the soccer field, or laid eyes on a new haircut only after your locks are strewn across the floor, you know what it's like to be a GWG. Marissa Walsh has worn glasses since third grade. Now - 10 pairs of glasses, one pair of prescription sunglasses, and endless pairs of contacts later - she has fully embraced her four-eyed fate.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I received this book as a freebie from Audible in a Valentine's promotional. I listened to it on a 3-hour drive one afternoon, so it worked well for that. I found the story to be interesting enough to help the time pass but not interesting enough that I would have wanted to pay for it.
