Fire and Fury
- Inside the Trump White House
- By: Michael Wolff
- Narrated by: Michael Wolff, Holter Graham
- Length: 11 hrs and 56 mins
With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.
Not as credible as one would like.

Make no mistake, this is another contribution to fake news. I believe the events and descriptions are largely true, but much of what is presented as fact here is clearly made up based on analysis of the author. if you like Trump you won't believe most of what is here. If you dislike him you will find yourself believing every word. Like most historical fiction, I believe it has a spirit of truth, with some true historic facts interspersed with lots of filler.

- Length: 10 hrs and 19 mins
Under Tiberius is a thrilling story of crime and deceit involving the man who came to be called Jesus Christ. Deep in the recesses of the Vatican, Nick Tosches unearths a first-century memoir by Gaius Fulvius Falconius, foremost speechwriter for Emperor Tiberius. The codex is profound, proof of the existence of a Messiah who was anything but the one we've known - a shabby and licentious thief.

Interesting primus inadequately explored
Would you try another book from Nick Tosches and/or Jonathan Davis?
What could Nick Tosches have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
His exploration of the theme that Jesus was an impostor, helped by a noble birth Roman is interesting. NT borrowed too much "thought process" from modern times. Would have been more interesting if he had tried harder to capture the thinking processes of the 1st century human.
Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I was very intrigued by the idea of this book, but the execution was inadequate. I was disappointed.

Inconsistent advise and utter disregard for Bible
What disappointed you about Become a Better You?
His inability to give consistent advise and his utter disregard for treating the Bible in an intellectually honest manner.
What was most disappointing about Joel Osteen’s story?
He kept circling back to the same points over and over without acknowledging that there were incompatibilities between individual theses in the book.
What does Joel Osteen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His nearly hypnotic speaking style discourages thinking about the content of the message.
What character would you cut from Become a Better You?
