    In his controversial New York Times best seller, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza answered the question on everyone’s mind: why is President Obama hell-bent on seeing America fail? The reason, D’Souza explained, is Obama’s fervent anticolonial ideology. Here, in his blockbuster follow-up, Obama’s America, D’Souza shows how President Obama is applying his anticolonial ideology to unmake America and turn it into a country our founders would hardly recognize.

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

    Yes I have done this already. D'Souza logically argues his points and often quotes from Obama to prove his points.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    If Obama is such a "nice guy" why does not he help HIS brother George Obama? George is family!!! Yet, Obama wants everyone to help others....the rules seem NOT to to apply to this President. Obama went to one of the most expensive and elite private schools in Hawaii....I went to public school.

  • The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

    Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?

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

    This is a well documented book about the politics of science and why fat was unfairly condemned.


    What other book might you compare The Big Fat Surprise to and why?

    Why We Get Fat by Garry Taubes. Fat Chance: The Bitter Truth About Sugar by Robert Lustig.


    Any additional comments?

    As a physician with a degree in nutrition I am impressed with this book. The world of nutrition is flipping back to what we ate hundreds of years ago before we got fat and died of heart disease.

His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition, and wit are collected in one volume.

    A popular question in philosophy is "How do I know I exist?" That seems really boring, though. How about, "How can I use logic to get over my ex?" If you really love wisdom, you love it in all situations - you don't need to be spoon fed unsolved problems in philosophy, because you're already analyzing the US Weekly you’re reading or your kinda significant other. Sarah Heuer and Chrissy Stockton are writers living in Minneapolis who are determined to do something more interesting with their philosophy degrees than talk about dead white guys.

    What disappointed you about PhiLOLZophy?

    I have had a more intellectual conversation with a slobbering drunk. The drunk at least thinks outside the box. Picture a burned out cigarette butt in beer bottle after a bar pick up where you talked about yourself as you had sex. Critical thinking????


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jack and Jill since it is better story.

    The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

    If you could sum up Leading from Behind in three words, what would they be?

    The Man was not ready for Prime time and Is still not ready for Prime time. In 2008 Obama said it best when he said it was time to replace a failed administration with Hope and Change. It is true today. It is time to replace Obama's failed administration with Hope and Change. This book documents that Obama is not the leader He thinks he is and America Hoped he was. Time for change.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The seals who killed UBL.


    If you could give Leading from Behind a new subtitle, what would it be?

    America, You Got What You Deserved When You Tossed Your Vote Away.


    Any additional comments?

    All Americans need to read this book to see how not researching ones vote can potentially bring down our nation.

    Paul Kengor's God and Ronald Reagan made presidential historian Paul Kengor's name as one of the premier chroniclers of the life and career of the 40th president. With The Crusader, Kengor returns with the one book about Reagan that has not been written: The story of his lifelong crusade against communism, and of his dogged and ultimately triumphant effort to overthrow the Soviet Union.

    Learning about newly released documents that had been previously classified has added so much to the depth of our understanding of importance of Reagan's place in history.

    The Communist by Kengor. The story of Obama's "Frank". Flip side of the coin.

    This is the story of Condoleezza Rice that has never been told, not that of an ultra-accomplished world leader, but of a little girl - and a young woman - trying to find her place in a sometimes hostile world, and of two exceptional parents, and an extended family and community, that made all the difference.

    What does Condoleezza Rice bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was sitting in the room with me and speaking to me. Thank you.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I cried when she told me of her loss of her mother and father.

    As we approach the most important presidential election in America’s history, something has been lost among all of the debates, attack ads, and super- PACs - something that Americans used to hold in very high regard: THE TRUTH. The truth can no longer be something we hope for; it must be something we live. When courage prevails, cowards do not - and this book was written to ensure that’s exactly what happens.

    Story
    Where does Cowards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Beck always writes a very entertaining book. He clearly makes his case. Too bad more people do not read this book, but some non readers of this book are also cowards and do not want to see that the world is being destroyed. This book is related to todays social and political climate. Ayn Rand's master pieces are similarly poignant, but more likely to be read 50 years from now.

    "More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins The Language God Talks, Herman Wouk's gem on navigating the divide between science and religion. In one rich, compact volume, Wouk draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Language God Talks: On Science and Religion to be better than the print version?

    Yes, but I always "hear" books. I do not read them. I bought the print version for my two daughters as they enjoy reading books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The special and unique fabric that Wouk weaves between himself and Feynman. Wouk is a very special story teller as the thread he sews touches on cosmology, God, the culture of how we live in religion and how we see what we are capable of understanding and/or accepting in faith. It gave me the chance to relive a brief meeting I had with Feynman a half century ago.
