In this rollicking memoir, So, Anyway..., John Cleese takes listeners on a grand tour of his ascent in the entertainment world, from his humble beginnings in a sleepy English town and his early comedic days at Cambridge University (with future Python partner Graham Chapman) to the founding of the landmark comedy troupe that would propel him to worldwide renown.

I really didn't know exactly what to expect for certain but no matter what it should have been I am sure my expectations would have fallen short of the brilliance that came out of this book. Definitely a must for anyone who as even remotely been touched by John's wonderful history.

The Mises Institute is pleased to present this audio edition of Rothbard's most famous monetary essay - the one that has influenced two generations of economists, investors, and business professionals. The Mises Institute has united this book with its natural complement: a detailed reform proposal for a 100 percent gold dollar. "The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar" was written a decade before the last vestiges of the gold standard were abolished.

I always enjoy getting many perspectives on a given subject matter and this met that need and more. It is one thing to get a lot of information but another to inspire you enough to really meditate on it and really way the possibilities.

How did violence and power seep into our understanding of faith and grace? For those troubled by this trend toward the sword, perhaps there is a better way. What if the message of Jesus differs radically from the drumbeats of war we hear all around us? Using his own journey from war crier to peacemaker and his in-depth study of peace in the Scriptures, author and pastor Brian Zahnd reintroduces us to the gospel of peace.

I have read a few hundred books overs the years and of all of them this has been the single one to have the greatest impact on my life. If I only had one book to read over and over going forward this would be it.
