As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters - until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal. Juno mourned Starkiller as dead...but now he is back....

  • Tough Sh-t

  • Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

More advice.

What about Kevin Smith’s performance did you like?

It is funny how he breaks out of the reading for some comments

Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring con men, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

Where does Star Wars: Darth Plagueis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Normally I am not a big fan of fiction, but this was very well written and Daniel Davis does superb work.

What does Daniel Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The different voices. Just excellent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Try some of the free stuff of Robin Sharma which is quite good, but this really was not worth the time.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Robin Sharma?

Yes, some of his stuff is good. There is a free audio book on audible which I highly recommend.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari?

The part about the monk who sold his Ferrari.
