  • Room Full of Mirrors: A Biography of Jimi Hendrix

    For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism, and his excessive lifestyle, was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had.

    J. Wood says: "Hendrix-Man and Myth"

    Overall

    Wish I had this book when I did a report on Jimi in the 7th grade (19 years ago). Feels like I got to know him. Get it, you'll love it.

    In 1897, at the age of 50, Bram Stoker was touring manager to the actor Henry Irving and was enjoying a modest success as a journalist and writer. Publication in that year of Dracula was to bring him international and lasting fame.

    Don't even hesitate, this is one of the greatest books of all time. It will actually make you more intelligent and better looking if you listen to it. Superb story, great narration.... scary, indearing, hopeful.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Story
    (1672)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "Not a novel"
    Overall

    You gotta love Einstein.... I listened out of repspect for a man who has given us so much. Interesting book, better if you read along while listening. Could have summed this one up in a 1/4 of the book. Fell asleep a few times.

    This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need to be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

    "Give the narrator a glass of water"
    Overall

    Come on with this guy! Was he whispering, hoarse, or in terrible need of a glass of water? I tried slowing it down, speeding it up, listening through headphones underwater, broadcasting it through a bull horn. Nothing made this guys voice work for me! Mr.Intensity made it hard to get to the meat of a great version of the New Testament.

    In Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot, eminent neuropsychiatrist and best-selling author Richard Restak, M.D., combines the latest research in neurology and psychology to show us how to get our brain up to speed for managing every aspect of our busy lives.

    Glenn E. Graham says: "Brain exercises for you"
    "Stick with it."
    Overall

    I loved this book, it changed my mind about what is "boring". I'm begining to see the value, and joy of exercising my brain. I wouldn't have "gotten it" in small chunks. Listen to the whole thing in 1 or 2 sittings to get the most out of it. The references to other literary work opened some doors I didn't know needed to be opened, for me. I'm glad I got this book.

    Continuing the inspiring story begun in his first book, Every Second Counts captures the mind-set of a man who has beaten incredible odds and considers each day an opportunity for excellence.

    Wayne says: "Good Book - Unfortunate Narrator"
    "Get it"
    Overall

    One of the only audiobooks with cycling content in the Audible library. The unabridged is the best way to go with this one, has more personality than abridged, I have both. I am a cycling geek, so I wanted a little more about the sport, but it seemed to scratch the itch. I went for a long, hard ride every time I was done listening to it. Ride on, brothers and sisters!
