    Richard Labunski offers a dramatic account of a time when the entire American experiment hung in the balance, only to be saved by the most unlikely of heroes, the diminutive and exceedingly shy James Madison. Here is a vividly written account of not one, but several major political struggles that changed the course of American history.

    James says: "American History is All of a Sudden Interesting!"
    "Tedious"
    Overall

    The struggle for the Bill of Rights should be a fascinating history. What ideas drove the men who argued for and against the Bill of Rights? The book claims that much of the disagreement was just about process--e.g., whether we should get a Constitution with a Bill of Rights or first a Constitution and then a Bill of Rights. Oh really? Process may have been an argument, but surely wasn't the foundation of disagreement. Puzzling facts get mentioned, but but never get explored--such as, why was New Jersey so quick to approve the Constitution without a Bill of Rights? The author doesn't pause to consider such questions. A great opportunity missed.

    Story
    Where does Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's top notch. A kid's book that's like a good ride through unknown and intriguing territory. Really two stories: one the real-life history of the Pilgrims exodus to America and the school kids fantasy of a time traveling teacher and horse.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims?

    The contrast between the near starvation of the Pilgrims on arrival in America and the cornucopia of a 50s drive-in.


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

    His seriousness, respect and humor underscore the story at appropriate times.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trump Strategies for Real Estate to be better than the print version?

    The book stresses strategy, but also addresses a lot of negotiating tactics as well. The book's written by George Ross, a long-time business associate and attorney for Donald Trump. It is solid and full of ideas we can put to work in business and especially in real estate investment. The key is always: "how do I add value?" Without an solid business answer to that question, the rest of the strategy rests on sand. But there are lots of other strategic and tactical ideas that the author covers in a systematic and clear manner.

    Along the way, you get to know both Donald Trump. I was rather neutral on Trump before I read the book, but I come away with a new found and deep respect for the main's integrity, creativity and entrepreneurship. He's the real deal and it's a pleasure to understand how he thinks about real estate, investments and people.
