  • Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

    Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper-sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense. If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.

    I'm a listener to Beck's radio show, but wasn't sure about a book (audio or not). I was pleasantly suprised. I loved it. I've listened through it once and expect to give it a second listen.

    We are at a crossroads of immense proportions. Nationally, internationally, and globally, we areliving in a manner that is absolutely, unconditionally, irrevocably unsustainable. Our global economic stability is in jeopardy, our planet’s ecosystems are under attack, and our health is deteriorating. Huge changes are coming whether or not we want them, whether or not we are ready for them. How can we lead the charge to introduce innovations and solutions to meet the inevitable challenges of new kinds of economic forces?

    "Not What It Seems"
    Overall

    I was sorely disappointed with this book. It is filled with self righteous "I" statements...the author seems to fancy himself an expert on just about everything. Most of the discussion is eat right, stay healthy, recycle, etc....all good advice, but not what I expected from this book. The investment strategy information is minimal and followed by statements that while an industry or fund may appear to be one of the sound investments for the future one cannot be certain without extensive research....then the author concludes with information on how to establish an account with his brokerage firm!! He downgrades the marketing industry and has then succeeded in getting me to buy a book which is one big advertisement...I feel duped!

    I loved "the Secret" , but the Power was no secret. It's not bad, but it just doesn't have the same feeling to me.

    Conspiracy of the Rich is an interactive, "Wiki-style" project in which Kiyosaki has invited feedback, commentary, and questions from readers across the globe. The response so far has been totally fantastic. Millions and millions of readers have flocked to the website (www.conspiracyoftherich.com) to read what Robert has to say about the recession, and the readers have posted thousands of comments.

    My favorite "rich dad" book. If you read only one, make it this one.

    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    I usually don't read (or listen to) fiction, but I really liked this book. It was very interesting.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Loved these series!"
    Overall

    I listened to the first book in this series, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," and at the end thought, "That's it?? This can't be the end!" and then discovered it was a series. I've listened to all three books and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. The author, reader and translator are all to be commended!

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "Great production of an audio book"
    Overall

    Really enjoyed this audio book. The production was wonderful and made it easy to listen to, understand, and enjoy. Instead of someone just reading straight through a book, it was filled with audio clips and interview sections from different people. I assume these were excerpts from the movie, but it was a wonderful audio format that others should emulate. I liked it very much. Oh yea...the message was good too. Full break down into the power of positive thinking. It has made me a more positive thinker.

    Somewhere in South America at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening, until a band of terrorists breaks in, taking the entire party hostage.

    Brian says: "Surprisingly engrossing"
    "Good Book...Believable Characters"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book very much. The story line was unique and the characters were all very believable. The reader was appropriate to the story...completely objective whether speaking from the point of view of the terrorists or the hostages. All in all a very good listen!
