    From the Stooges and MC to Grand Funk Railroad and Ted Nugent, to the White Stripes, Eminem, and Kid Rock, and whole casts of other great bands and performers, Detroit has always produced louder, more rumbling, more subversive rock music than any city in the world. In Detroit Rock City, listeners get to hear the stories straight from the participants themselves: the singers, the guitar slingers, the fans, the reporters, the promoters, even the guys who hand-made amps to be louder and crunchier than the competition’s.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book is nothing but 5000 quotes from other people read. Hard to follow, not real interesting and I never made it to part 2, board out of my mind.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Story
    If you could sum up No Easy Day in three words, what would they be?

    We are building fantastic warriors throughout the world, and they want to use their skill sets, but in listening to this book all I can think about is the impression we left on the woman and children at the compound, watching the Americans kill. Yes, I know they killed thousands of us, however I hope a day comes that the only weapon in war will be debate and words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Easy Day?

    I totally respect all the Seals for what they are doing to protect us, and I'm very thankful they are on our side.

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Would you try another book from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins and/or Paul Costanzo?

    I found the book to be a little boring for me, however for someone who has not be learning how to read people's emotions for the last 10 years then I would recommend this book. For all you sales people, if you are having trouble reading what your client is saying without him using his words, but instead using his body languge, then you should invest in this book. Become more aware about yourself and how your reactions maybe impacting others is very valuable in all our communications.

  • Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude

    Maximizing the trader's state of mind is the key to successful results. Conflicts, contradictions, and paradoxes in thinking can spell disaster for even a highly motivated, astute and well-grounded trader. Mark Douglas, an industry consultant since 1982, sends the message that a "thinking strategy" will profoundly influence a trader's success rate. Douglas addresses five very specific issues to give traders the insight and understanding about themselves that will make them consistent winners in the market. Trading in the Zone offers specific solutions to the "people factor" of commodity price movement. It uncovers the true culprit for lack of consistency when it comes to stock picking: lack of focus and self-confidence. Through simple exercises, traders will learn how to think in terms of probabilities and adopt the specific beliefs necessary to developing a winner's mindset. Along the way, they'll gain valuable insights into their own entrenched misconceptions about the market.

    Lee Iacocca believes that leaders are made in times of crisis - such as today. In Where Have All the Leaders Gone? he offers his no-nonsense, straight-up assessments of the American politicians most likely to run for president in 2008. He also shares his lessons learned, and issues a call to action to summon Americans back to their roots in hard work, common sense, integrity, generosity, and optimism. Where have all the leaders gone? Lee Iacocca has the answer.

    Michael says: "Good listen after the Bush bashing"
    "I loved this book!"
    Overall

    I really liked this book. I have always been a fan of Lee Iacocca’s and value his opinions. This book is a wake up to all those who are out there, not voting, not participating in our political system. Lee is not asking you to go along with his opinion, what he is saying is lets make a good choice next time in our Presidential election. Let’s make sure we ask those tuff questions of each Presidential Candidate, hear their detailed plans and get away from just hearing sound bites. I highly recommend this book.
