    Salk became a cultural hero and icon for a whole generation. Now, at the fiftieth anniversary of the first national vaccination program, and as humanity is tantalizingly close to eradicating polio worldwide, comes this unforgettable chronicle. Salk's work was an unparalleled achievement, and it makes for a magnificent listen.

    Who would have thought that the story of the development of a vaccine could be so fascinating? Obviously Jeffrey Kluger did, and he did a wonderful job of weaving all of the components of this story together. One of the best stories I have heard on audible.com. I give it my highest recommendation.

    In a penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and as an individual. In First Man, the personal, technological, epic, and iconic blend to form the portrait of a great but reluctant hero who will forever be known as history's most famous space traveler.

    The book reflects Armstrong's personality: interesting but tends to bog down in detail a little every now and then. The only thing I really didn't like was the narrator changing his voice to reflect the different characters, including women. Wasn't necessary & is a distraction.

    Overall, it's a pretty good book.

  • NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized)

    The NIV Audio Bible is more than a Bible you listen to. It's an experience that helps you enter into God's Word...so God's Word can enter into you.

    Dave says: "Best Version By Far"
    "Not real great"
    Overall

    Hate to be critical of any presentation of the Bible, but I thought several of the readers overacted to the point of being a distraction from what they were reading. Doubtful I will listen to it again.
