    We’ve long understood black holes to be the points at which the universe as we know it comes to an end. Often billions of times more massive than the Sun, they lurk in the inner sanctum of almost every galaxy of stars in the universe. Recent research, however, has led to a cascade of new discoveries that have revealed an entirely different side to black holes. As the astrophysicist Caleb Scharf reveals in Gravity’s Engines, these chasms in space-time don’t just vacuum up everything that comes near them; they also spit out huge beams and clouds of matter.

    Would you listen to Gravity's Engines again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to this again. Perhaps I am not the average person, but I love this kind of learning, and this truly is a learning experience to be savored.


    What about Caleb Scharf’s performance did you like?

    Caleb did a wonderful job. I'd be proud if he was to do this kind of work for my books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was emotionally moving. One can feel the connection with the grand scheme of creation.


    Any additional comments?

    SUPERB...!

    Battle: The Story of the Bulge, John Toland's first work of military history, recounts the saga of beleaguered American troops as they resisted Hitler's deadly counter offensive in World War II's Battle of the Bulge - and turned it into an Allied victory. It is a gripping work, painstakingly researched and imbued with such vivid detail that listeners will feel as though they themselves witnessed these events. This is a book not to be missed by anyone interested in this tumultuous era of our world's history.

    This work is not only well done but it is a moving account of life and death. War is hell and I truly doubt that there were many atheists in the foxholes during these terrible days. While I did enjoy the stories, I found that evil is real, and only God, and good people can stop true evil.

    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    Jerome Corsi's newest opus, No Greater Valor, examines the Siege of Bastogne - one of the most heroic victories of WWII - with a focus on the surprising faith of the Americans who fought there. In December of 1944, an outmanned, outgunned, and surrounded US force fought Hitler's overwhelming Panzer divisions to a miraculous standstill at Bastogne. The underdogs had saved the war for the Allies. It was nothing short of miraculous.

    It's not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.

    At first, all seemed well BUT suddenly, halfway through, the author (for no necessary nor literary reason) begins using derogatory phrases like, "What the hell..., eat shit..., and so on. This denigration is an obvious attempt by the author to say, "I am free." Well, so am I, and I won't support such corruption in an alleged "Godly Essay.".

    A Great Work while listening there is no indication of what book, chapter, or verse you are hearing.!? This is a very large work and most folks would like to know what part they are hearing.

    This production makes one giant assumption. The reader / listener is gullible. Zukav assumes that you, the customer, will grant him authority to preach his "message". Blind faith in Zukav is the only way you or I might enjoy this "message". Sorry but, No Thank You....

    David R. Lewis will keep your interest. This is well written, and since the author is doing the reading, the tale flows smooth as silk. The characters voices are clearly separate and firmly recognizable. The musical interludes between chapters is another plus, as it allows the imagination a few seconds to consider the storyline. David R. Lewis Is marking a clear trail and I will surely follow.

Writer, William Johnstone does a fantastic job in bringing the old west alive with the narration of Jack Garrett adding flavor and color to the adventure series. If your interested in the Wild West 1870-1900 this series will satisfy your desire.
