    Eric Chevlen says: "Jerusalem falls. The Temple is destroyed."
    "Great book! HORRIBLE RECORDING!!!!!"
    Overall

    This is a great book, but the sound is horrible! I only was able to bear the strugle to listen to the words because I was really interested in listening to Josephus. Honestly you really have to pay much attention ( a real struggle ) to really understand certain parts of the book.
    Anyway, the book itself shows by the words of Josephus himself how that wicked generation of 70AD was brought to destruction. It's hard not to feel indignation against that generation as you listen to Josephus eyewitness account of what they did to each other. According to Josephus, it was like God himself was bringing destruction upon these people and the temple. Apparently a repeat chastisement as took place by the Babylonians of 607BC. Wether you are a Jew or a Christian, this is a very good book to read. Although I would rather read the written version rather than listening to this horrible recording.

  • Gilgamesh: A New English Version

    This brilliant new treatment of the world's oldest epic is a literary event on par with Seamus Heaney's wildly popular Beowulf translation. Esteemed translator and best-selling author Stephen Mitchell energizes a heroic tale so old it predates Homer's Iliad by more than a millennium.

    George says: "A defense of this "translation""
    "Just ok. With a warning: NOT FOR CHILDREN."
    Overall

    I was interested in this book mostly because of its literary history. I wanted to see what people back then were interested in through their writings. I would say the story was ok, but not great by any means. On the other hand, this is NOT a book for children, it contains very erotic and pornographic parts in it, so be warned. Would I recommend? Maybe only to people like me who really are interested in history and so you can say that "you've read it". Otherwise if you're looking for an interesting book, avoid this one.

    Spanning hundreds of ideas developed over the past century, 50 Psychology Classics also explores important contemporary writings, such as Gladwell's Blink and Seligman's Authentic Happiness. Listeners will gain insight into the scientific research of leading contemporary psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists. And they'll discover why we think and act the way we do from the landmark best-sellers of psychology.

    Rick says: "50 Success Classics"
    "A waste of time!"
    Overall

    This is about a biography of psychologists and not what I expected. Very boring.
