    From 1962 until 1992, Johnny Carson hosted The Tonight Show and permeated the American consciousness. In the ’70s and ’80s he was the country’s highest-paid entertainer and its most enigmatic. He was notoriously inscrutable, as mercurial (and sometimes cruel) off-camera as he was charming and hilarious onstage. During the apex of his reign, Carson’s longtime lawyer and best friend was Henry Bushkin, who now shows us Johnny Carson with a breathtaking clarity and depth that nobody else could.

    America's first families are unknowable in many ways. No one has insight into their true character like the people who serve their meals and make their beds every day. Full of stories and details by turns dramatic, humorous, and heartwarming, The Residence reveals daily life in the White House as it is really lived through the voices of the maids, butlers, cooks, florists, doormen, engineers, and others who tend to the needs of the president and first family.

    What did you like best about The Residence? What did you like least?

    I like the interesting behind the scenes details. To be honest, I can't listen to the entire book. I've made it halfway through and I can't take the narrator anymore. Every character voice she does sounds like an old southern black man. If I decide to finish the book I'll buy the Kindle version and read it myself.


    What didn’t you like about Karen White’s performance?

    Every character voice she does sounds like and old southern black man. I finally gave up listening and deleted the book from my account. I'll buy the Kindle version and read it myself.


    Do you think The Residence needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    Gene Wilder is one of the great comic actors who defined the 1970s and 1980s in movies. From his work with Woody Allen, to the rich group of movies he made with Mel Brooks, to his partnership on screen with Richard Pryor, Wilder's performances are still discussed and celebrated today.

    Author and award winning filmmaker Richard Martini explores startling new evidence for life after death, via the "life between lives," where we reportedly return to find our loved ones, soul mates and spiritual teachers. Based on the evidence of thousands of people who claim that under deep hypnosis, they saw and experienced the same basic things about the Afterlife, this audiobook documents interviews with hypnotherapists around the world trained in the method.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to friends. The stories are interesting and give a person hope for what awaits all of us.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could listen to this book all in one sitting. Richard Martini is an excellent story teller. Very natural style that I enjoy. Listening to his book is like sitting with a good friend and listening to him tell you stories. Well done.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint concerning this book is the production of it. The "popping of the P's", the thumping of the microphone, the change in sound from one chapter to another. For instance I was listening to a later chapter yesterday on the way home from NC. One chapter sounded like it was recorded in a large cave. I really like Mr. Martini's natural style of delivery but the noise from popping P's to hitting the mic and making a thumping noise is distracting.

    Read the astonishing true story of a young boy's gruesome head-crushing injury, his three visits to Heaven, and his supernatural healing...and your life may change forever. Run over by a car at agefive, Billy Anderson died three times prior to emergency surgery and was left in a vegetative coma after large portions of his damaged brain were removed. Though his doctors did not expect him to survive, God had other plans - supernaturally healing Billy only six days after his skull-shattering accident.

    What does Chaz Allen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A very good story teller.

    James Anderson does a fantastic job of telling the story of his brother Billy's trip to heaven and back. The book is funny and entertaining and down to earth. It's a great read.

    Expert Book Reviews presents a comprehensive review, analysis and plot summary of Khaled Hosseini's novel And the Mountains Echoed. This is an epic tale set in the mold of Doctor Zhivago, in which the lives of the characters are determined, often tragically, by great historical circumstances and events that they are powerless to control. Khaled Hosseini's story tells of a little Afghan girl's unlikely journey with her family. And the Mountains Echoed is a love story of a different kind. Pari, as she is named, is loved by her older brother beyond words.
