Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

Since Obama took office, conservative pundits have been mainstays on the best-seller list. And now, the best-selling author and political legend Pat Buchanan weighs in with a warning against not only the dangers that the country faces under Obama, but the risk of sliding into irrelevancy that the Republican party faces if it chooses to forget its core values. As he shows in this incisive book, liberal policy-making and unhindered globalization have eroded America’s economic strength.

I was hesitant to get the title since it was abridged but glad I did. It hits like a ton of bricks. Mr. Buchanan lays out the case very clearly how the country is over. This was written about 2011 and nothing has been done to stop the bleeding. The suicide is complete and the body is already in rigor mortis. There's no saving the country. BY 2030 the country willbe off the rails crazy. All of the institutions will be completely dysfunctional. America will implode like South Africa.

Most Americans consider Abraham Lincoln to be the greatest president in history. His legend as the Great Emancipator has grown to mythic proportions as hundreds of books, a national holiday, and a monument in Washington, D.C., extol his heroism and martyrdom. But what if most everything you knew about Lincoln were false? What if, instead of an American hero who sought to free the slaves, Lincoln were in fact a calculating politician who waged the bloodiest war in American history in order to build an empire that rivaled Great Britain's?

  • Suicide of the West

Through studious research into past civilizations, Burnham diagnoses the 20th century and finds it afflicted with destructive, even "suicidal" tendencies - all of which arise from the “Liberal syndrome” and its inherent applications. The book explores several important questions, including why Liberalism clashes with Christianity and how Liberalism is a root cause of race riots and the rapid growth in crime.

For the first time in 65 years, a modern, easy to understand, truly complete and uncensored edition of Mein Kampf has been released which reveals more than any past translation. This is also the first translation available in an English language audio format. Older translations altered passages, omitted passages, mistranslated Hitler's words, and made some parts more sensational while concealing the true meaning in other parts of the book.

Fascinating diversion here. The narration is well done and goes at a good pace. Im about 4 hours into it and Im finding it a bit addicting. He covers a lot of obscure German history and discusses the old Hapsburgs and various provinces and countries and their interactions. I have already gained a new appreciation of the unique complexities for these peoples in a place like Europe. As I listen I find this sense that Im really lingering in the late 19th Century. This time period is discussed a fair amount. Another excellent feature is when some obscure name or event is mentioned immediately a new voice chimes in to a give a quick two three or four sentence explanation of the reference. Works GREAT!

The Lincoln-Douglas Debates made history and changed its course through seven legendary match-ups between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas during the 1858 Illinois senatorial race. Although he lost the election, Lincoln's gift for oratory and his anti-slavery stance made him a nationally known figure, and led to his election to the presidency in 1860. Never before presented in audio, these debates and great statesmen are brought to life by narrators Richard Dreyfuss and David Strathairn.

How is it possible for the disciplines of cosmology, geology, anthropology, biology, and history to fit together? These 48 lectures answer that question by weaving a single story from accounts of the past developed by a variety of scholarly disciplines. The result is a story stretching from the origins of the universe to the present day and beyond, in which human history is seen as part of the history of our Earth and biosphere, and the Earth's history, in turn, is seen as part of the history of the universe.

I found these lectures to be pretty valuable and helps quite a bit for filling in some blank spots in my internal timeline knowledge. I was fascinated by the big bang stuff and the description of the early universe development. I must admit it lost some luster when he started talking about patriarchy. He has spent all this time describing this Natural unguided spontaneous evolution and development of the universe then its like he has a problem with patriarchy? Really? It was a bit lame. I also noticed he frequently would say something like " We really dont know this, BUT let me tell you how it was." But all in all a very good BIG PICTURE overview for the current "establishment" outlook of the godless universe.

Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

What made the experience of listening to A Prayer for Owen Meany the most enjoyable?

This audio experience builds a world. His tones and inflections takes us back to New England of decades ago. He brings Owen Meany to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too long for listening in one sitting but youll want to hear it more than once for sure.

It is a "basic training" of security and patrolling and how to go about security. The book reinforces enthusiasm and the mind set needed for prepping. A good primer. Then get Patriots- A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse by James Rawles. That book is the next level and then some!

Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

AWESOME narrator!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did - some might say this book is just common sense but it goes deep into the lessons so you understand on a profound level that character, discipline, and our inner attitude are key to living a successful and prosperous life.

Any additional comments?

This is a book I would recommend for EVERY young person - it should be required reading in high school. I think it was written in hte 1920s and the writing style is mature yet direct and easy to understand - you really can tell that the mucky goopy psycho-babble we have today is so much B.S. Napolean Hill teaches with wisdom. This audio book is a gem.
