    Whether it is Hannibal of Carthage marching elephants across the Alps and attacking the heart of Rome, Khalid ibn al-Walid boasting an undefeated military career and destroying the Persian Empire while subduing the Byzantines, or Russian General Alexander Suvurov and his elevation of the bayonet to a work of art that could cut down any European army, great military leaders have exerted tremendous influence on society. This book will look at the lives of the 10 greatest military commanders in history.

    What did you love best about History's Greatest Generals?

    I loved learning the history behind the Generals.


    What other book might you compare History's Greatest Generals to and why?

    not sure.


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

    Pierce brought the book to life. I love history but don't always want to read a book. Even if I read the book, I may get bored quickly. I loved listening to the audio about the battles and victories.


    Any additional comments?

    I received the audio, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

    As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t sell, and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan. Enter the star editor, MacDermott Ellis: Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Then there's Allan Lavigne, once a revered author - now as forgotten as last year's best sellers and his nephew Nick: Tall, gorgeous, sweet, single, and ready to sweep Kate off her feet.

    I received this book in exchange for honest review. I loved listening to the book. I tried to Chromecast it to play on the tv, while cleaning, but Silverlight didn't like me. So, I turned off the tv and listened from the computer.

    Kate is a publicist, who helps upcoming authors with their books. In the first scene, she is helping one, hysterical author, keep from jumping off a ledge. Kate also has a crush on an editor at work (Mac), who is married, but is cheating.

    I think the scene, which grabbed me the most, was when George focused on Mac's wife miscarriage, 20 or so years ago. I really felt for his wife, since I had a miscarriage before. The wife withdrew and moved into a separate room. She also has not been intimate with her husband since.

    Then, you have Grace, Kate's good friend, who tries to keep Kate on the straight and narrow, especially from falling for Mac.

    The book flowed well from one chapter to the next. I was on chapter 11 within a few hours. I also loved the scene, where Bernie, a low grade editor, forgets to order enough books for a book signing, Kate is helping promote. When Kate arrives at the book signing to set-up, she learns Bernie only ordered 20 books, when 200 people have arrived to see the authors.

    Kate is not trying to fail because she has a hot book, she was promised to help promote, which will help jumpstart her career. No more hysterical authors to keep from jumping. or authors crying over a bad review (which I know the feeling)

    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.

    Where does Go the F--k to Sleep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    #1. I felt a special connection to the book since I have two kids, 13 and 2. Both of them give me troubles at night. I want them to sleep. They want something to drink, eat, a diaper changed :-)


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

    Sam Jackson narrating the book.


    What about Samuel L. Jackson’s performance did you like?

    I liked everything.


    If you could rename Go the F--k to Sleep, what would you call it?

    Take your As* to sleep, NOW. I'm not telling you no more. Go to sleep or Else.
