Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger's high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach, to breathing life into cinema's most iconic characters, and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.
I thought that this book may be about his acting career more than anything else but I really enjoyed his childhood and the Army. He did a great job with the book and and it is a definate MUST LISTEN!!!
Rattler One-Seven puts you in the helicopter seat, to see the war in Vietnam through the eyes of an inexperienced pilot as he transforms himself into a seasoned combat veteran. Soon after the war, Gross wrote down his adventures, while his memory was still fresh with the events. Rattler One-Seven (his call sign) is written as he experienced it, using these notes along with letters written home to accurately preserve the mindset he had while in Vietnam.
The first Heli book I listened to was Night Stalkers. That was Very informative and at the same time fed my Love for Helicopters. This book Does it all over again. Gross takes his letters he sent home and other things he wrote at the time and reads them as he progresses thru his Army stint in "Nam". He takes you from when he enters the Recruit center and adds the most Exiting and informative days in that time period and puts them in this book. He becomes one of the more revered leaders of his unit that many guys come to look up to. I hesitated b/c of not many people rating this yet but I'm glad I took a chance and got it. It is now one of my Favorites that I will be re listening to for a long time.

One witch is the most feared, the most ruthless, and the most deadly of all the witches in the county. If she hunts for you, she will find you. If you have crossed her, you don't stand a chance. She is the witch assassin, and her name is Grimalkin. Grimalkin's one alliance is with Tom Ward, the Spook's apprentice. With Tom, she plans to rid the world of the most terrifying evil, the Fiend, who once did her a great wrong. For the first time, fans of the Last Apprentice series will hear the story from Grimalkin's side.
This is a book that many of us "followers" have been waiting for. This book takes you on the other side of the light. Grimalkin's story is an exiting adventure. You as a listener get to root for the Darker side this time. Grimalkin fights against the Dark w/ her magic and all her skills. She takes on an apprentice of her own to help her fight off the Dark that is trying to take back the head of the Fiend and reunite it w/ his body. Grimalkin finaly cant do it all on her own and needs to enlist the help of Alice. Tom sits this one out. Its only Alice that joins up w/ Grimalkin from the "clan". This time Alice has to dig deep into herself and pull out magic that not even she knew she had. This may be the turning point for Alice...
Total enjoyment from start to finish!! Only bad part is that I wish it went on more than it does.
