The highly acclaimed music from the Seven Secrets spoken word audio by Russell Webster. Russell's voice features on ths audio, which is predominantly music, yet has underlying subliminal messages. This is a superb work of relaxing chill out music, with a slightly upbeat tempo. It even gets played at Cafe del Mar in Ibiza in the early hours of the following day after the night before. Great dinner party music too. This is incredibly popular.

If I could give this Seven Secrets Subliminal a 20 Star rating it would be holding back. As a follow-up to the Seven Secrets book it is SO POWERFUL! Yes, I meant that for emphasis. This subliminal reinforces the Seven Secrets messages and it simply makes me feel good every time I listen to it and I've listened to it 100's of times! Thank you Russell Webster.

This history, well and thoroughly written, true as best can be ascertained by Win Blevins, is told to us as around a campfire in as animated and clear a fashion as bespoke the times by Michael Taylor. It makes a man yearn for the mountains, harken to every bird call or rustling of the leaves, to chill at silence, and to feel the untrodden earth as if walking in another man's moccasins. The thrill of the hunt, the camaraderie of the rendezvous, and the friendship and hatred of the indians and the trappers. They were for and against each other, and both against the migrants that came after in their trains of wagons... I cannot express the pleasure I derive from this wonder filled book.

Somehow Nice Girl and Noir sounded oxymoronic to me, me who brought myself up on Spillane, Hammett and Chandler but I bought it anyway and left it on the digital shelf while I followed Gibbon, Beard and the Great Courses across the ancient world. Then yesterday I opened this up and was delighted to find a calculating mind weaving words and crisp phrases across several excellent and short stories. Yes, I listened to the entire book of stories in a day. And yes, they are noir and they left me wanting more of Libby Fischer Hellmann... more, Staccato

The Peloponnesian War pitted Athens and its allies against a league of city-states headed by Sparta. The ancient Greek historian Thucydides captured this drama with matchless insight in his classic eyewitness account of what was arguably the greatest war in the history of the world up to that time. These 36 half-hour lectures draw on Thucydides' classic account as well as other ancient sources to give you a full picture of the Greek world in uneasy peace and then all-out war in the late 5th century B.C.

Thank you Professor Harl. As another reviewer observed this is a "serious" course. The histories explored and questioned, the importance of the prelude to the war, the actions within it, and the repercussions throughout and after lend us insight into the important wars and alliances then, and throughout the intervening 2,400 years even unto our present day. This is a course to be studied with the excellent accompanying course PDF and the best maps that you can find to refer to throughout. I will never see our "modern" world the same. More complex, perhaps. More devastating, definitely. More humane or evolved? These questions remain with me as I view the Athenians, Spartans, and others presaging the EU, US, former USSR and Daesh, while wading through alliances, diplomacy, and war after war. If you think critically, you will be challenged with this course.

William Cooper stood head and shoulders above any of his contemporaries... He had no peers. He has none even today and this abridged version of his book and his truth is priceless. He encapsulates in his own words and voice more truth in two + hours than this entire library could produce, if anyone else would dare to even say it. The question is, will you dare to hear it... Your life and your world will never seem the same. Then, pick up the hardcopy of "Behold A Pale Horse" and read it all. You only have ignorance to lose.

Foreign Enemies and Traitors is set in the near future in an America that is creeping steadily toward socialist tyranny, in the midst of the second Great Depression. A year after earthquakes have devastated the Tennessee Valley, survivors are resisting demands by the federal government to relocate to FEMA refugee centers. United States National Guard units have proven ineffective at forcing these survivors out of the earthquake-damaged regions, due to their reluctance to employ deadly force against fellow Americans.

What made the experience of listening to Foreign Enemies and Traitors the most enjoyable?

The story is IMO, the best dytopian fiction written to date, and I have read all of the top 100 plus books of this genre. It is realistic, believable, exciting, and well written. It culminates the Trilogy and pulls all of the pieces and charecters together. This third book was more than 20 hours long and I drug out the last few hours because I hated for it to end.

What did you like best about this story?

The story started in Book 1 and was frighteningly plausable, and the charectors were real life and when put into their situations acted in a realistic manner... they were informed, the story put their life experience to work, and they improvised as they went. It made me feel that Americans have the will, the knowledge and the ability to match their circumstances and prevail. Not always win, not without heartache and loss, but Yankee ingenuity can win out. This book can be read stand-alone without reading 1 and 2 but why? You'll just go and buy them anyway once you get started in this...

Have you listened to any of Mike Kemp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to and enjoyed all three of Mike Kemp's Audible offerings, all with this trilogy. He has a rich (baritone?) voice with a bit of southern gentleman accent. To his credit he does not try to switch voices to sound like a woman or other changes in tone to separate charectors and the book is written in a manner that doesn't require it. His tone, volume and manner of speaking do vary as needed for emphasis and right as they should. I also have the hard copy and Mr. Kemp's performance is virtuallt flawless. His performance was good in book 1 and got even better as he went forward through Book 2 and very good in Book 3. I am very grateful to Mike Kemp for his narration, because of him we have more than 70 hours of Matt Bracken's excellent Enemies Foreign and Domestic Trilogy done well.

If you could take any character from Foreign Enemies and Traitors out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Ranya Bardiwell out to dinner to any restaurant she wanted. She is intelligent, practical, very well trained, determined and principled way beyond most men or women, and... she is young, beautiful, a couragious Mother and Patriot, and she can outshoot most guys what is not to love about this woman?

Any additional comments?

Having this book and the entire Trilogy of Enemies Foreign and Domestic on audio is the best gift I've given to myself in years... I enjoy it because it is an excellent story and more... I learn from it, from Matt Bracken, a real deal SEAL who has actually been there and done that and wrote about what is happening and may yet happen in our country. It is eerie how prescient his Trilogy is... it is coming too true, too quickly. It is an excellent value. Buy it. Read it, you'll be glad you did!

I read another review and downloaded "Talking Cooking" anyway. It is good basic and valuable. How Maria speaks or reads was helpful, it was like the real life experience of sitting in the kitchen with her. . . and she had a couple of notes on a pad so she didn't want to forget what was important. This lady has a lot of information and helpful hints. I am a bachelor man and this is just what I needed to get started and then some. . . it is eductional and fun. My only criticism is that it didn't go on for another two hours. Even if you already know how to cook - don't pass this up! There are tips, like the ones on cooking with children that are well worth the money and time. Have fun with it.
