The closer we look at the Robertson family, the more we discover the substance and authenticity below the surface of these well-known TV characters. In this enlightening audiobook, Jase Robertson gives us a deep look behind his funnyman exterior. In addition to stories of life in the Robertson family and epic tales of hunting of all kinds, listeners will get an inside look at Jase’s personal faith in the Creator of the outdoors he so dearly loves.

No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 - 5) to be better than the print version?

Absolutely not! In fact, what on earth were you guys over at ‘Broad Reach Publishing’ thinking? Did anyone listen to this disaster before signing off?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 - 5)?

This is a great book from start to finish. Just buy a copy and (read) it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I don't want to get started.

Any additional comments?

This book deserved a top-notch, male narrator.

Joe Pickett is the new game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming, a town where nearly everyone hunts and the game warden—especially one like Joe who won't take bribes or look the other way—is far from popular. When he finds a local hunting outfitter dead, splayed out on the woodpile behind his state-owned home, he takes it personally. There had to be a reason that the outfitter, with whom he's had run-ins before, chose his backyard, his woodpile to die in.

I???m starting to run out of Nelson DeMille, Vince Flynn, Michael Connelly, and Craig Johnson books so Greg Iles was a good find. I highly recommend this book.

Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

America by Heart is a highly personal testament to Sarah Palin's deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. The book includes brief readings from classic and contemporary works that have moved and inspired her, as well as other Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.

To have a woman so beautiful talk for seven hours and not say a single word that I disagree with is pretty darn special. You gotta respect this lady???s resolve. In my fifty-four years I???ve not seen a public figure continuously savaged in such a foul manner. But, it???s like Rush says, the left always lets you know who they fear most.

Informative, well written book. If you get your news from a source other than Fox you are probably of the opinion that President Bush is not capable of writing a book much less one worth reading. If so, you???re dead wrong. The man is pure class. No blame games like what we???re seeing now. So do yourself a favor, listen to what the man has to say, and stop wallowing in media instilled ignorance. He wasn???t perfect but I???d trade to have him back in a heartbeat. He certainly merits 20 hours of your time.
