    Secret Service agents, acting as human surveillance cameras, observe everything that goes on behind the scenes in the president's inner circle. Ronald Kessler reveals what they have seen, providing startling, previously untold stories about the presidents, from John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as about their families, Cabinet officers, and White House aides.

    Story

    Funny how Kessler has nice things to say about all the Republican presidents, but trashes the Democratic ones. Lots of mundane details about the politics of Secret Service lifestyle. Who cares? Not enough behind-the-scenes on the presidential details.

    In Chris Matthews’ extraordinary biography, we see this most beloved president in the company of friends. We see and feel him close-up, having fun and giving off that restlessness of his. We watch him navigate his life from privileged, rebellious youth to gutsy American president. We witness his bravery in war and selfless rescue of his PT boat crew. We watch JFK as a young politician learning to play hardball and watch him grow into the leader who averts a nuclear war.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Stephen King has done it again. Time travel and suspense. Great mix. Couldn't stop listening. Worth every penny!

    Boldly going where no audio has gone before, Star Trek Memories is William Shatner's own behind-the-scenes look at the legendary '60s television series that continues to spawn movies, books, and series spin-offs 26 years after the last episode aired. Avid Trekkers are sure to be delighted with this first-hand account from Captain Kirk himself.

    Barton says: "good insider view"
    "Interesting, but wooden narration from Shatner"

    Story

    There are some good behind the scenes stories here for Trekkies to enjoy, but Shatner's monotone narration was dissapointing. Worth a listen if you are a die-hard ST fan (and you can get this title on sale).

    First came the man: a young wanderer in a fatigue coat and long hair. Then came the legend as the character, John Rambo, took his place in the American imagination. This remarkable and critically acclaimed novel pits a young Vietnam veteran against a small-town cop who doesn't know what he will unleash after their first ill-fated encounter - a life-and-death struggle through the woods, hills, and caves of rural Kentucky.

    This book does not have the excitement of the movie. I kept waiting for things to get going, and felt unsatisfied at the end. A waste of time.

    Jaws is the classic, blockbuster thriller that inspired the three-time Academy Award-winning Steven Spielberg movie and made millions of beachgoers afraid to go into the water. Experience the thrill of helpless horror again - or for the first time! Jaws was #48 in the American Film Institute's 100 Years...100 Movies, and the film earned the coveted #1 spot on the Bravo network's 100 Scariest Movie Moments countdown.

    A bold English adventuer. An invincible Japanese warlord. A beautiful woman torn between two ways of life, two ways of love....An English captain and his crew are shipwrecked on the coast of feudal Japan. They must deal with two Japanese warlords who are struggling to attain the title of Shogun - and the ultimate power that comes with it.

    Lorrie says: "A question about further Clavell books."
    "Keep listening for many hours of enjoyment"
    Overall

    This wonderful book starts slow for the first 2 hours or so, but the remaining 46 are a great listen. The narrator is not great at the start, but does a great job with dialogue between the many players. I've read this book a couple of times many years ago, and what a pleasure it was to listen to the action and adventure at my own pace. The character interaction is memorable, and I found this book to be worth the expense. Was sorry to see it end.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "1776 one of my favorite Revolutionary war books"
    Overall

    This book is so well-written, and McCullough is wonderful reading his own material. This is worth a repeat listen. Highest praise!

    This New York Times best seller is a thrilling account of one of the most pivotal moments in United States history. Six months after the Declaration of Independence, America was nearly defeated. Then on Christmas night, George Washington led his men across the Delaware River to destroy the Hessians at Trenton. A week later Americans held off a counterattack, and in a brilliant tactical move, Washington crept behind the British army to win another victory. The momentum had reversed.

    William says: "Particularly Good Military History"
    "Worth the ride across with Washington!"
    Overall

    This book is a wonderful listen. You'll have a new respect for George Washington and the remarkable feats he accomplished. The pre and post crossing stories are great too. Runger first class job as narrator.
