    At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, The River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.

    "Theo...Who knew?"
    Overall

    Before listening to this book, all I knew about Teddy Roosevelt was that he was a President, had a big mustache and/or stick & was always yelling "Bully". This starts a bit slow but in the end, I was really touched. Theo seemed a great man, everyone who knew him intimately, seemed to truly love & admire him ...& now, I kind of do too (although I didn't really know him intimately). This book/adventure makes you cringe with fear for Theo & his entourage, ache for their safety & wonder why the heck are they there? But I thought it was really good & I liked it alot. And though I spaced out occasionally while listening because I guess I also had to pay attention to my driving once in awhile, & therefore had to re-listen to some parts, it always kept my interest. I Like Teddy! This book was an education...and to ME, an interesting & informative one.

  • Hughes: The Private Diaries, Memos and Letters: The Definitive Biography of the First American Billionaire

    Story
    (192)

    In "the most exciting bio of the year," Richard Hack uses recently uncovered (and in some cases, recently declassified) personal letters, court testimony, FBI files, autopsy reports and exclusive interviews to reveal the man who was a legendary lover, record-setting aviator, award-winning film producer, talented inventor, ultimate eccentric, and, for much of his lifetime, the richest man in the United States.

    Story

    I couldn't stop listening. I knew Hughes was at least eccentric and OCD but those descriptions are too vague. I don't think there is a psychological or physiological category that he would fall in to. Fascinating. Well written, credible and though I thought a few words were misread, narration good.
