    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    "Excellent production"
    Overall

    This book is by far one of the best that I have ever heard. I already knew I would like the book as I have read it in the past. This audio production brings the book to a different, more alive level. The different voices for the various characters is very well done.

    Story

    Drawing on unprecedented interviews with former Wal-Mart executives and a wealth of staggering data�including facts such as this: Americans spend $36 million an hour at Wal-Mart stores, this text is an intimate look at a business that is dramatically reshaping the American economy.

    Michael says: "Excellent, Balanced View"
    "Thoughtful"
    Overall

    This book blew me away. I've shopped at Wal-Mart for years and am a "conflicted" buyer. Although I've had doubts about my Wal-Mart experiences in terms of conflict of conscious, this book distilled those chaotic thoughts into coherent logic. I have a lot to think about especially from a socially responsible point of view. The book is easy to understand and very well written.

    Feeling feverish, tired, or achy? Listening to Gina Kolata's engrossing account of the 1918 Influenza epidemic is sure to give you the chills. A gripping work of science writing, Flu addresses the prospects for a great epidemic recurring, and considers what can be done to prevent it.

    L. says: "Disappointed"
    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    As a medical professional, I was fasinated by this story. The story was sobering especially as we may be facing a similar panepidemic. I think the author provided excellent detail and good explainations. I enjoyed this book very much and would highly recommend it. The reader was very good. Although there may have been a slight list, it didn't detract at all from the experience.

    The TNIV Audio New Testament 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. Featuring Today's New International Version (TNIV), it continues a life-giving legacy of communicating the Bible's timeless truth in today's language. The TNIV Audio Bible New Testament speaks God's words to today's world.

    "Wonderful translation"
    Overall

    I have really enjoyed this translation. The narration is excellent and keeps one's attention. The concerns raised below regarding the actual translation are basically made by people who have no appreciation of God's view of men and woman. This translation uses terms such as "people" rather than "man"; this is consistant with all of scripture which holds the view that all are equal before God, not that men are more like God as compared to women.
