  • Peter the Great

  • His Life and World
  • By: Robert K. Massie
  • Narrated by: Frederick Davidson
  • Length: 43 hrs and 37 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    4.5 out of 5 stars 741
  • Performance
    4 out of 5 stars 624
  • Story
    4.5 out of 5 stars 614

This superbly told story brings to life one of the most remarkable rulers––and men––in all of history and conveys the drama of his life and world. The Russia of Peter's birth was very different from the Russia his energy, genius, and ruthlessness shaped. Crowned co-Tsar as a child of ten, after witnessing bloody uprisings in the streets of Moscow, he would grow up propelled by an unquenchable curiosity, everywhere looking, asking, tinkering, and learning, fired by Western ideas.

  • The Most Dangerous Man in America

  • Rush Limbaugh’s Assault on Reason
  • By: John K. Wilson
  • Narrated by: Arthur Morey

    3 out of 5 stars 11

With almost 20 million listeners on more than six hundred stations, Rush Limbaugh is the leading and most dangerous figure in the conservative movement today. John K. Wilson uses the most effective strategy of all—Rush’s own words—to show how Limbaugh’s flagrant disregard for the truth and penchant for savage personal attacks laced with racist, sexist, and homophobic slurs have held the political arena hostage.

Would you try another book from John K. Wilson and/or Arthur Morey?

only if I needed to feed from the liberal trough...

Has The Most Dangerous Man in America turned you off from other books in this genre?

Just a short reading will determine-- but the liberal agenda? You'll probably read.
Recognize the slant? Throw it out!

Did Arthur Morey do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

No documentation. No proofing. Just the liberal agenda.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadly, a waste of time.

Any additional comments?

Save your money! DONT BUY!
