On this tour of Paris' Left Bank, you'll experience: the white hot center of Paris where writers, artists, and musicians come to create; St. Germain des Pres, the oldest church in Paris; the history of massacres and martyrs; chic shops and naughty novels; and the art of the cafe; and much more.

I have taken several audio tours of Paris and this is one of my very favourites. Great content: historical, artistic, practical, interesting. Great narration: not simple reading from a text, but engaging narration, clearly composed using the actual street scenes. This is as good as ParisWalks, which sets the standard.

Find out how to see the best Paris has to offer in just a few days. If you are planning to go to Paris for only two or three days and you want to make the best of your short stay, then you have come to the right place. The focus of this audiobook is to make your short stay one of the most memorable experiences of your life. The goal of this audiobook is not to squeeze everything the city has to offer into two or three days, but to show you the best of the city in two or three days.

Leave out the long websites and phone numbers from an audio program. They're distracting and in my opinion unnecessary. The pronunciation of French wordsd and names is pretty good.

With more than 80 of the most popular and loved poems in the English language, this collection is one of the most comprehensive anthologies of its kind. It covers a remarkable range, from the striking visions of Blake and Shelley and the insights of Keats to lighter but equally memorable verse by Tennyson.

I love Anton Lesser and espcially Simon Russell Beale. I saw the latter live in London in 1998 and still think he's one of the best actors alive. This is a good collection of poetry, and the performance by Lesser and Beale is excellent. I do not regret this purchase and intend to listen to this a second time.

I really enjoyed this. I found Vonnegut's work fascinating, but I was also fascinated by it because he was reading it and in a way interpreting it. This contains the short story Harrison Bergeron, which is a futuristic story about future laws that prevent talented people from performing in an outstanding manner because it they might outshine less gifted people. Another highlight of this recording is an abridged version of Slaughterhouse Five, Vonnegut's famous book about Dresden. It is a Traufamadorian experience in which Billy Pilgrim comes unstuck in time. Then there's the short novella (or "long short story") entitled Welcome to the Monkey House, also set in the future, in an overpopulated world in which everyone is required to take medication that removes libido, so that humans will not reproduce.

This is a relatively concise review of American federal constitutional law. It hits all the major concepts, most of the important fact patterns, and some of the major cases, though it does not present an historical review. It is for law school and bar review but can be used for CLE (continuing legal ed). If you took The Teaching Company (The Great Courses) course on the history of the Supreme Court and enjoyed it, you might enjoy this. If you took Law School for Everyone, this is a good supplement to that too. I recommend this course to any citizen or person who wishes to learn the principal concepts of American con law.

Rafi Nemes does a good job reviewing contract law concisely. His diction is clear and measured. It is even keeled and well paced, not too fast nor too slow. A brief review cannot touch on all legal nuances, but the content of the course appears to be sound. The transition between ideas is direct and fairly smooth. This review is briefer than other audio products available. I used it for CLE (continuing legal ed), though it is designed for law students and bar review. I recommend this item for students, lawyers, and anyone interested in learning about the common law of contracts in the U.S.

  • The Misanthrope

This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th-century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony Award-winning actor Brian Bedford.

I recommend this item. This play is significant in the history of classical French literature and indeed in the history of Western lit. The translation by Richard Wilbur is nothing short of excellent. It is in rhyming verse, which makes it more entertaining. Other great playwrights like the Bard used rhyming verse only occasionally. Also, this play goes to the heart of something inherent in human nature. In everyone, perhaps, there is a tendency to want to tell the truth, even when it might hurt or offend or insult others, but also a tendency to be diplomatic and polite and keep one's truth to oneself. This is one of my favourite plays in all the repertoire.
