    "You’ve seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don’t know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can."

    Any additional comments?

    Although this book is a bit self-agrandizing it makes some very important points. If kids in high school knew how much untrue garbage is spewed on the web there might be a lot less anxiety in their lives.

    For the adults that get their news from the web, maybe we should take it less seriously and think twice before reaching conclusions.

    I can't say this is a great book but the points it makes are very important in todays society.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Overall

    A wonderful story with great character development. It's well read and I was sorry when it ended.

    I immediately purchased the next book in the trilogy.

    Best selling author David Baldacci brings all his brilliant character-building skills to bear in Wish You Well, a literary coming-of-age tale set in Baldacci's native Virginia. Publishers Weekly calls it "his best novel yet...an utterly captivating drama" that offers "bone-deep emotional truth."

    Carol L. Riegel says: "Excellent Book"
    "A wonderful example of life"
    Overall

    I've listened to audio books for years but this is the first I've reviewed. The character development was excellent. What was so exceptional about it was the extreme emotions it elicited from me(happiness, sadness, anger, contentment ...) and the simple, but important, messages it conveyed.

    I couldn't put it down. Even when I was dreading what was going to happen next, I had to keep listening. Oh, and there was no sex, profanity or horrifying blood baths. It would be a great book for kids to listen to.
