    The sequel to the best-selling Star Trek Memories, documenting in deliciously lurid and candid detail all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans in the making of the six Star Trek movies, with on-the-scene reporting from the set of the seventh in which Kirk dies!

    Story

    Shatner in his typical way moves quickly through all the movies except the dreadful #5, helping us understand why it really shouldn't have been the bomb it was. Overall the stories, though extremely brief were nice and it is always enjoyable to learn a bit more about the cast.

    The Presidents Club was born at Eisenhower’s inauguration when Harry Truman and Herbert Hoover first conceived the idea. Over the years that followed - and to this day - the presidents relied on, misunderstood, sabotaged, and formed alliances with one another that changed history. The world’s most exclusive fraternity is a complicated place: its members are bound forever because they sat in the Oval Office and know its secrets, yet they are immortal rivals for history’s favor.

    Story

    This book focuses on the interactions between the Presidents. It only used history as a narrative to give depth to the reasons why past Presidents work with current ones. I am in my 30's and found it very interesting to see how much Eisenhower helped Kennedy. How involved Reagan was in national politics before he became President in the 80's. The stories were extremely interesting to history buffs. I actually wish that they had spent more time on the Clinton/Bush II years and less on Nixon, but overall it was a very interesting read.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Story

    I really enjoy listening to Baldacci's book They are fun, keep me guessing and at the same time do not require the brainpower of say a Tom Clancy novel. I like stories that move. This is my favorite. The characters were not overdeveloped and the story moved fast. I enjoyed this new character and look forward to further novels about him. I highly recommend!

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Story

    I simply could not finish this audio book. I have listened to all the rest and enjoyed the series immensely. Ken Kilban however made Irene sound like a school girl and Mitch her boppin' boyfriend. IT WAS AWFUL!!! Please rerecord this book with George Guidall. He is an amazing narrator and capture both the personality and essence of ALL the characters.

    Bottom line - Go to your local library and read this one!
