    In this star-studded autobiography, Clive Davis shares a personal, candid look into his remarkable life and the last 50 years of popular music as only a true insider can. In the history of popular music, no one looms as large as Clive Davis. His career has spanned more than 40 years, and he has discovered, signed, or worked with a staggering array of artists: Whitney Houston, Janis Joplin, Simon and Garfunkel, Barry Manilow, Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Dionne Warwick, Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, Alicia Keyes, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Aretha Franklin, to name a few.

    On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his flight home to Montana when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America.

    What did you like best about 77 Days in September? What did you like least?

    The premise for the story, devastation caused by an EMP, was great, and I listened to the first couple chapters with great anticipation for ensuing elements which never were delivered.


    What was most disappointing about Ray Gorham’s story?

    Rather than develop a story on the after-effects of the atmospheric nuclear explosion, the author chose to focus on a single person in pursuit of his family in an unrealistic walk across the country. Would have liked to have known what was happening on the government level, who our allies might be in that situation, how the rest of the world might respond to the incident, etc.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Morton?

    The narrator was slow and mundane. Monotone. Maybe he was cast for the job because of the dour nature of the book itself.


    Could you see 77 Days in September being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Oh no. Too depressing for the reality-show mentality of today's audiences.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend to anyone with or without kids. We all were kids at one point, trying to connive our way into staying up later than our parents wanted us to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Go the F--k to Sleep?

    "You know where you can go? The ... to sleep."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Ummm, it's 6 minutes.
