  • Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorism

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Benjamin Netanyahu
    • Narrated By Jeff Riggenbach

    In this newly revised edition of Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, offers a compelling approach to understanding terrorism. Netanyahu's points are "soberly and clearly made," says The New York Times, and The Washington Times calls the book "an excellent primer on the groups, motives and methods of the current terrorist threat."

    Matt says: "Excellent Perspective"
    "Excellent Perspective"

    Great perspective from a country leader who is used to terrorism on a daily basis. Listen with the thought that it's his point of view with documented facts, and you'll enjoy it whether you agree or disagree.

  • The Closing of the American Mind

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Allan Bloom
    • Narrated By Christopher Hurt
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In one of the most important books of our time, Allan Bloom, a professor of social thought at the University of Chicago and a noted translator of Plato and Rousseau, argues that the social and political crisis of 20th-century America is really an intellectual crisis.

    Douglas says: "VERY IMPORTANT WORK!"
    "Excellent...Must Listen"

    This was an excellent listen. Every American should listen to this a couple times. Great understanding of what happened before the "60's revolution" and what drove that cultural revolution.

  • The Legend of Bagger Vance

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Steven Pressfield
    • Narrated By Ronny Cox

    In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Their match is thrilling competition, but the key to the outcome lies with caddie Bagger Vance, who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing.

    Robert says: "Blows the movie away!"
    "Edge of Your Seat Listen"

    Excellent listen. I did not see the film adaptation and don't plan to. May not enjoy it as much if you're golf illiterate.

  • America's Real War

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Rabbi Daniel Lapin
    • Narrated By Rabbi Daniel Lapin

    Our country is in a tug-of-war. At one end of the ropes are those who believe in a secular nation. At the other end are those who stand for a spiritual America. Orthodox Rabbi Daniel Lapin calls for a halt to the war - through a return to our Christian tradition.

    Matt says: "Excellent Listen"
    "Excellent Listen"

    This is an excellent read for any American, Christian or not. Great to hear the perspective of a Jewish Rabbi.

    • Narrated By Stephen Hoye

    People learn to work for money...but never to have money work for them. That's what Robert Kiyosaki says in this guide about what rich dads tell their children that poor dads do not. Browse all Rich Dad titles.

    TomD says: "Good starter"
    "Great Info and Encouragement"

    Wish it was in the unabridged version. Tons of food-for-thought for those wishing to rise above the fray of mainstream economic thought.

  • Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Ann Coulter
    • Narrated By Ann Coulter

    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

    Mark says: "A bizarre phenomenon"
    "Good Read for Historical Facts Too"

    I found this book very intriguing, not only because I'm on the same "side" as Ann, but because of the historical facts in the book and the research that went into it. Since I did not grow up in McCarthy's era, I had only heard his name in a negative context. It was good to hear this treatment of him and what really happened in the context of those days.

  • Understanding Islam: An Introduction to the Muslim World

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs)
    • By Thomas W. Lippman
    • Narrated By Nadia May

    Of the 1.3 billion people who today follow the Islamic faith, all are profoundly affected by the teachings of Muhammad and by Muslim traditions that have developed over the past thirteen hundred years. This comprehensive guide offers an informative and insightful introduction to Islam, both as a religion and as a political-economic force. This download has never been more timely!

    R. Bell says: "Could have been better"
    "Historical Treatment"

    This was interesting as a historical book, not a current events book. Good read if you want a simplistic and quick, but thorough background on Islam.

  • The Teeth of the Tiger

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Tom Clancy
    • Narrated By Stephen Lang

    Charged with spotting terrorist threats, the top-secret "Campus" has its hands full when Middle East thugs and Colombian drug lords join forces. New Campus recruits include Jack Ryan Jr., son of master spy John Patrick Ryan, now President.

    J. Anderson says: "The Teeth of the Tiger"
    "Needed Unabridged"

    Excellent Tom Clancy material. It was too short though. Would have enjoyed an unabridged version.

  • The Age of Sacred Terror

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Daniel Benjamin, Steven Simon
    • Narrated By Philip Bosco

    Long before September 11, 2001, Steven Simon and Daniel Benjamin warned publicly of a massive terrorist strike against America. They were not voices from the fringe; they had been the directors of the White House's counterterrorism program. Their warnings were ignored. Now they have written the definitive work on radical Islam's war against America, from its deep origins to our long struggle ahead.

    Matt says: "Good Perspective to Understand"
    "Good Perspective to Understand"

    Great read (listen). Great perspective to understand where terrorism has come from and where it is going. Authors clearly prefer Clinton foreign policy to Bush (current) foreign policy.
