Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK’s presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys - America’s royal family. To mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie’s guard, experienced those days firsthand.

Loved listening to this book from the first chapter to the last. Very visual descriptions with incredible details about the minute by minute sad moments in JFK's assassination history. Clint is an unsung hero.

Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our greatest passions to things that can never fulfill, and it distracts us from the very lives we wish we were living. But it doesn't have to be this way.

Love this book with Audible companion. After reading four chapters we had a dumpster in our driveway and a week later it was full of stuff that was clogging my way to clear thinking. After a few more cleaning and throwing away sessions we will be in a very good place to living an uncluttered lifestyle. Good book to pass on to others.

This is just what I needed to teach my teenager about his shyness and how to overcome it. I am working with him now so he can grow up confident and healthy. As a parent, I too can benefit from this knowledge. Thank you for writing this book.

The audiobook will explore Trump's view on key issues including the economy, big CEO salaries and taxes, health care, education, national security, and social issues. Of particular interest will be his vision for complete immigration reform, beginning with securing the borders and putting American workers first.

This is the extraordinary, behind-the-scenes tale of how Woodstock went from a pipe dream to the most iconic rock concert of all time. Elliot Tiber, then known as Eliyahu Teichberg, was a budding painter in the 1960s. He also happened to be head of his local chamber of commerce - and owner of the yearly permit to hold summer music concerts. The rest, as they say, is history.

This is the most interesting and entertaining audiobook I ever bought. It tells about all the behind the scenes drama that occurring during the planning of Woodstock Music and Arts Festival. The author was right in the middle of the "storm" and made it very visual and rather humorous at times. Very hip and groovy. Wish I could have been there in 1969.

Woodstock: The Oral History is the definitive, electrifying account of the rock festival that shook the world and defined a generation. It shares the adventures of a ragtag bunch of businessmen and bohemians, of hippies, hucksters, handymen, and hangers-on, working against all odds to unite a generation for one wild, glorious weekend in August 1969.

First published in 1973, this is a study of the force of photographic images, which are continually inserted between experience and reality. When anything can be photographed, and photography has destroyed the boundaries and definitions of art, a viewer can approach a photograph freely, with no expectations of discovering what it means. This collection of six lucid and invigorating essays, with the most famous being "In Plato's Cave", make up a deep exploration of how the image has affected society.

He's got the biggest personality in business. His trademark line "You're fired" from The Apprentice is one of America's most recognizable catchphrases. He's survived the biggest real-estate bankruptcy in history and climbed his way back to the top. He's Donald J. Trump, and he's going to tell listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money.

This book is a "must read." Trumps cuts through all the crap and tells it like it is. Allot of great business and life-long advice is contained within his writings and is very well conveyed in the audio version. I wish I could have lunch with Mr Trump and find out more on what is inside his brilliant brain. More books from him are now on my bookshelf. Highly recommended.
