    Charlie Wilson's War is the untold story behind the last battle of the Cold War and how it fueled the rise of militant Islam. George Crile tells how Charlie Wilson, a maverick congressman from east Texas, conspired with a rogue CIA operative to launch the biggest, meanest, and most successful covert operation in the agency's history.

    Chuck says: "Best Non-Fiction Book - Extremely Compelling!!!"
    "Outstanding But LONG"
    Overall

    Outstanding book, but then it was an outstanding real life story. All the 4-5 star reviewers get it right. But for an audiobook and a listener that is not a professor of history it is way too long. The reader is great, but his style doesn't lend itself to droning on and on about previously unknown, but a wide cast of characters, especially if they are only minor in the whole scheme of the story or not known by previous media events in our lifetime.

    My recommendation is to get the abridged version. But don't miss it altogether because it is a great story, with a whole lot of relevance to our current events.

  • The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and Maintaining Your Perfect Weight

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 4 mins)

    The Body Fat Solution is neither super low carb nor super low fat, and the author steers clear of demonizing entire food groups. Instead, Venuto shows you how to personalize an eating plan that takes into account your unique metabolism and calorie needs. He details the stumbling blocks we all face to success, and gives you the tools to overcome them.

    David says: "The Most Sensible "Diet" Book Ever"
    "Not in Audio"
    Overall

    The book itself is good. Lots of information that isn't new, but that is good to be reminded. What was disappointing is that there was no effort to make it anything other than a book that is read to you by someone else. Inappropriate for a book of this type. With a small amount of effort and a producer it could have been an audio book that you use over and over and it becomes motivation for your program. So get the book or get another audio that is billed as an enhancement to your workout program because this isn't it.

    Stop smoking forever with this superb high quality hypnosis recording by Glenn Harrold, the UK's best selling self-help audio author.Glenn completely understands the smoking habit as he was a regular smoker for 15 years until he quit in 1987. He has created this unique hypnosis recording to help you programme your mind to break the smoking habit and become a non-smoker.

    Overall

    For a first pass this can be initially inspiring, but when you are quitting smoking you need more. A lot more. I understand the need for repetition, but there are many facets to stopping such a horrific addiction and I didn't feel this covered mind, body and soul and affirmations that can carry you through the long haul. Mr. Harrold's technique is flawless, which warranted the rating of 2, but lacked significantly in substance with respect to kicking an addiction and all that it entails.
