  • I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight

    Story
    (16)

    Comedian and activist Margaret Cho's righteous comic rage finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes, among them freedom of expression, gay rights, racial discrimination, and capital punishment. It is this blend of comedy and fervor that awakens the devotion of her legions of fans and permeates this book.

    Susan says: "Try other liberal audio books"
    "Try other liberal audio books"
    Overall

    Margaret Cho touches on a broad array of socially critical issues. However, her stand-up comedy style doesn't translate well to a full-length book. Several of her political analyses are painfully naive, even to this liberal reviewer. Audible liberals would be better served by listening to Al Franken or Maureen Dowd, whose books are well-researched.

    Story
    (29)

    With the new abridged audio for commuters, people driving to work, riding the bus or subway, or flying cross-country will be able to experience the life-changing message of The Purpose-Driven Life. It will help you understand why you are alive and God's amazing plan for you, both here and now, and for eternity.

    Edward Hanline says: "A summary of purposeful Christianity"
    "Pure dogma"
    Overall

    This book would be appreciated best by those seeking affirmation of fundamentalist dogma. It would not be appreciated by Christians seeking an intellectual discussion of faith. This book is simplistic and boring.

  • Big Russ and Me: Father and Son, Lessons of Life

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 12 mins)

    Story
    (41)

    Over the last two decades, Tim Russert has become one of the most trusted and admired figures in American television journalism. Throughout his career he has spent time with presidents and popes, world leaders and newsmakers, celebrities and sports heroes, but one person stands out from the rest in terms of his strength of character, modest grace, and simple decency: Russert's dad, Big Russ.

    Linda says: "The best I've read in a very long time!"
    "Nonetheless worthwhile"
    Overall

    A bit heavy on dogmatic devotion to father/family/community/country/church, but full of character and love, literally from cover to cover.
