    Story

    Kirk Douglas is a born storyteller, and in this engrossing memoir, he offers wonderful tales, favorite jokes, and hard-won insights. As he explores the mixed blessings of growing older, he looks back at his youth and his glamorous life in Hollywood. He tells delightful stories of the making of such films as Spartacus and includes anecdotes about such friends as Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall, Ronald Reagan, Fred Astaire, John Wayne, and Johnny Cash.

    Jill says: "WONDERFUL"
    "Spartacus still rules!"
    Overall

    Mr. Douglas has done a fine job of reflecting and giving some very wise words of wisdom to the rest of us. He comes across as someone you would love to sit down and talk with. He has shown his faults and regrets but does not dwell on them. He appears to be a man of convictions based on research and common sense, not on what might be the popular, 'Hollywood' thing to do. I'm open anytime he would like to have coffee.

    Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of being Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain.

    Arthur Held says: "NOT what I was expecting"
    "Don't bother"
    Overall

    This book was not at I expected...don't understand the title. Once in the book, I was totally offended (and I'm NOT a prude.) with the content. Had I been forwarned I would never have purchased, much less listened to this book.

    For more than six decades, she has been part of our lives. An American icon, Elizabeth Taylor has been surrounded by fame and notoriety since childhood. Now acclaimed biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli looks past the tabloid version of Elizabeth's life to the person she really is, and how she evolved from a child star to a woman in her own right.

    Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?

    Timothy says: "Fascinating book, despite the title."
    "Freakonomics"
    Overall

    Nice easy to listen - quick, interesting.

    Striking, heartfelt, and utterly engrossing, Dispatches from the Edge is an unforgettable memoir that takes us behind the scenes of the cataclysmic events of our age and allows us to see them through the eyes of one of America's most trusted, fearless, and pioneering reporters.

    Andrew says: "A Powerful Listen"
    "Painful"
    Overall

    Dispatches was dry, delivered with no emotion or change in tone....unfortunate from such an interesting person/life. Wish someone else would have done the reading. Thought is was rather self-serving.
