    For Australians, Kokoda is the iconic battle of World War II, yet few people know just what happened and just what our troops achieved. Now, best-selling author Peter FitzSimons tells the Kokoda story in a gripping, moving story for all Australians.

    Overall

    This rendition kept me awake all night, with tears of sorrow and chest pumping pride.

    Despite the petty politics of the 'high ups' these few men were there to do a job. Stop the Japs. They did, but at a cost.

    This book is about mate-ship and lost mates. It makes you proud to be Australian to learn more of the New Guinea campaign's details and the privations endured by our fathers and grandfathers in support of their families back home.

    Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Jason Spencer says: "Action packed, edge of your seat "page-turner""

    What made the experience of listening to The Gray Man the most enjoyable?

    Fast moving drama driven by a righteous guy. Credibility out the window as the story just carries you away


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Grey Man is far cooler than Mr Bond and more contemporary than the cold war warriors.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    Besides Jim boy it would have to be Kurt.

    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    I read it as a young man, but it is always good to be reminded. Excellent as a parental guide.

    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Lynn says: "A Rip Snorting Story"
    "A misunderstood giant"
    Overall

    An entertaining rendition, written in almost a collegiate style their was a little too much of "were the misunderstood good guys".

    Google is the third half of the many peoples minds and its efficacy and ease is almost like an opium. It posses the questions of responsibility in the competitive arena but does not paint the picture of the continuing social shift.

    All the same very entertaining
