In America the Beautiful, Dr. Ben Carson helps us learn from our past in order to chart a better course for our future.

Would you consider the audio edition of America the Beautiful to be better than the print version?

Yes. I often both read and listen. In this case I like the audio better. I prefer when the author narates his or her own.

What was one of the most memorable moments of America the Beautiful?

When Dr Carson details the current political problems

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

I laughed several times.

Any additional comments?

I only heard of the Dr last month. I learned how close his views reflect mine by watching utub, watching the movie Helping Hands and readinf this book. I now hope he is on the 2016 presidental ticket

More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

Where does Killing Kennedy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've read previous O'reilly books so I felt confident this would be worth the time. Bill nariated and did an excellent job.

This is my first audio book

Who was your favorite character and why?

Overall educational value

Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Always in print until now

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

No.

Any additional comments?

Much detail about events of the time was discussed a lot of which was new to me.

I expected to learn something about the actual assassination but didn't.

If you hope t I learn a new theory on the killing you will be disappointed.

I also purchased Killing Lincoln in hardback form but have yet to read even the back cover. I enjoyed th audii format and anticipate the rest of the books I get to be so.

Bottom line: Most people are going to love the book.
