    Here is THE book recounting the life and times of one of the most respected men in the world, Warren Buffett. The legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir, but now he has allowed one writer, Alice Schroeder, unprecedented access to explore directly with him and with those closest to him his work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies, and wisdom. The result is the personally revealing and complete biography of the man known everywhere as "The Oracle of Omaha."

    Richard J. Riker says: "2,220 well-invested minutes!"
    "Oh My Gosh! SOOO much detail!"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes if you are interested in Warren Buffett


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    LESS DETAILS OF EVERY SINGLE THING HE EVER DID! Really it was a bit much. Still I kept to the grindstone and listened to the whole thing. What I realized is that I like my much less rich life so much better than I liked his! Still, he is and was an incredible smart man that seemed to be able to turn even water into gold!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Almost didn't read the book because of the syrup-like narrator. Had to start and restart the book several times before sticking with it. After a while I learned to just not hear her anymore. Maybe that was my problem. I just felt his story should be read by a man. Hmm? Maybe?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    What did you love best about Stories I Only Tell My Friends?

    It had an air of sincerity to it. Rob Lowe read it well and you felt just how he felt. The stories were interesting and non sensational. Just real. (Or I hope they were) He is not the man I perceived him to be...or perhaps he was transformed by the time he wrote this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt both on a few occasions.

    Carl Bernstein's stunning portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows us, as nothing else has, the true trajectory of her life and career, with its zigzag bursts of risks taken and safety sought. Marshaling all the skills and energy that propelled his history-making Pulitzer Prize reporting on Watergate, Bernstein gives us the most detailed, sophisticated, comprehensive, and revealing account of Hilary Rodham Clinton yet.

    Katherine says: "in depth and well-written"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Woman in Charge the most enjoyable?

    Quite an account of her life, thoughts and actions. I'm always a bit wary of these biography type books. How accurate and real are they. But, even if only some is true, it is quite interesting all the things that we thought we knew but really didn't know at all. Hillary R Clinton is a remarkable woman who has made good and bad decisions. It was worth the read...if you are interested.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Woman in Charge?

    when her old friend that she had sort of abandoned, in my opinion, committed suicide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO! Way too much to take in.
