When he initially began trading, Jim Paul believed he was some type of Superman. He believed he was invincible - that whatever he touched would become gold. When he lost a million dollars, he recognized he was human like the rest of us, that he had actually just got fortunate, and that continuously flexing the guidelines just gets you so far. Any financier worth his salt requires far more than luck and self-confidence: he has to discover ways to lose.

The narrator is poor and he does a poor job of summarizing this book. This is one of the few books I will request a refund for my purchase price.

Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

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.

Would you listen to Righteous Indignation again? Why?

I found this book to be extremely informative. It helped me to understand many of my observations about the current state of the country and the "old media" and the "new media" and how politics and the media have evolved over the last 50 years in America. I have enjoyed this learning experience so much that I am listening to it for the second time. I have also told all my friends that are concerned about what is going on in this country about this book.

What about Jeremy Guskin’s performance did you like?

His speaking tone and voice works very well for this subject material. After listening for awhile, I thought I was listening to Andrew Breitbart himself.

If you could give Righteous Indignation a new subtitle, what would it be?
