    Josef Fritzl was a 73-year-old retired engineer in Austria. He seemed to be living a normal life with his wife, Rosemarie, and their family - though one daughter, Elisabeth, had decades earlier been "lost" to a religious cult. Throughout the years, three of Elisabeth's children mysteriously appeared on the Fritzls' doorstep; Josef and Rosemarie raised them as their own. But only Josef knew the truth about Elisabeth's disappearance.... For 27 years, Josef had imprisoned and molested Elisabeth in his man-made basement dungeon.

    Eric Schurr says: "One of the most riveting and disturbing books ever"

    Story
    What did you love best about Secrets in the Cellar?

    The actual story is horrible - the fact the father could do this to his own daughter is unreal. How she survived I have no idea.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That she survived - she had strength in her far deeper than most the people on this earth. A mothers love can do amazing things.


    Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    Not saying do not want to give any parts away


    Any additional comments?

    Be ready to be mortified.

    What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind---and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, he tells their stories of trauma and transformation.

    Marilyn says: "Changed a Sixth-Grade Teacher's Life"

    What did you love best about The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog?

    The collection of stories are well written and the mental mind behind them, explained. You get a look into both minds the victims and the offender.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    That people do call for help and they get turned away - then they do their best and a boy ends up living in a cage - our system sucks.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it, where you are interested in true crime, children, psychology, its a very good listen. but do not forget these stories are true.

  • True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal - and How Nearly Dying Saved My LIfe

    On television, as the star of the popular Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Kevin Sorbo portrayed an invincible demi god. He relished living the part—putting in 14-hour days on set, doing his own stunts, and relentlessly working out at the gym. Until one day it all came to an abrupt end. Now, for the first time, Sorbo shares what viewers didn’t know: he suffered three strokes from an aneurysm in his shoulder and was left partially blind and entirely incapacitated at just 38 years old.

    Would you listen to True Strength again? Why?

    Yes - Great true story of a strong man who struggles and still struggles to heal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I my self had a aneurysm and someone said well Kevin Sorbo had one and it takes time to heal its been over 2 years for him - Great Hercules takes two years I am 4 "10 I am going to take 20... so I figured I better hear the story. It really changed things for me at 1.5 yrs out.


    What about Kevin Sorbo and Sam Sorbo ’s performance did you like?

    They played off each other well.


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

    When Kevin really got it this was a life time of changes he would never be the same Kevin


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this... if you know anyone who has struggled this is a great book.
    Want to be inspired great book.
    Be told your life will never again be totally in your control and you have to be ok with that which you should have been in the first place... great book.

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    If you could sum up Rules in three words, what would they be?

    Great for Discussion - with youth groups and children with siblings of children with disabilities.
