This is a different approach from other training books. It works with dogs nature not against it. I found this book very helpful.

When Bronwen Dickey brought her new dog home, she saw no traces of the infamous viciousness in her affectionate, timid pit bull. Which made her wonder: How had the breed - beloved by Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller, and TV's Little Rascals - come to be known as a brutal fighter? Her search for answers takes her from 19th-century New York City dogfighting pits - the cruelty of which drew the attention of the recently formed ASPCA - to early 20th-century movie sets where pit bulls cavorted with Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton.

The book seemed well resesrched. Then I got to the end where they started talking about the Ferguson incident where no Pitbulls was involved. I then started to question the validity of the rest of the book. Seemed to be some type agenda and this chapter did not fit the rest of the book that focused on Pitbulls.

When Jonathan's firm sends him to Rome to discredit the testimony of a prominent U.N. antiquities official, a chance reunion leads to a hunt for the legendary Tabernacle Menorah: solid gold, eight feet high, stolen 2,000 years ago and never recovered. As Jonathan and his friend scour Rome's ancient sites for hints to its whereabouts, they quickly realize they are not alone and the precious menorah is a key to controlling history itself.

Where does Last Ember rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Like the historical mix and the story line. I like religious historical novels. Levin does a great job. Waiting for his next novel.

The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.

Fictous

If you keep in mind that this is fictitious, based around some history and some just made up facts the story is interesting and well done. Even though not catholic, I found it to be anti-catholic and theologically very narrow. The author seems to be playing on the whole Gnostic gospel movement for revisionist history. I have read other stories using the some of the basic premises and found them more believable fiction. Some will enjoy, some will be offended and some with knowledge of history and theology will be baffled by the interplay between fact and fiction. The authors notes are important part of this book to understand what is fiction and what is history.
