American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are responding. They're dropping out of college, leaving the workforce, and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this man-child phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?

A very well written and articulate novel. The many examples of anti-male practices rampant in our society were very moving and appalling.

  • The Real Lincoln

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?

The narrative enforcing Abraham Lincoln's greatness, that I initially grew up with, was intelligently exposed as a blatant distortion of true history. The Author's arguments were spectacular. I now have a greater respect for both the cause of the Confederacy, State's Rights/Sovereignty, and the importance of the Writ of Habeas Corpus. Any person interested in the "Civil War" (War of Northern Aggression) owes it to themselves to read is book through.

Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

The narration is done very well, though I do think the storyline moves along too quickly. Also, character development is very shallow. Apart from that, I loved the plot.

I expected to learn a lot about how to travel asks live fairly comfortably on a REALLY tight budget (Vagabond) and it turned out to be more of an empowering lecture that encouraged you to realize that Y.O.L.O. and that you should drop your life and take off, essentially... Ugh..

What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth? We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves - but Dr. Brené Brown's research has shown there is ultimately one obstacle to our sense of worthiness. “Shame is the barrier,” she teaches, “and building shame resilience is how we overcome it.”

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

I'm not one to even consider reading this type of book (my personality doesn't fit this type of read), but I decided to step outside my typical "zone" and am SO GLAD that I did! Sean Runnette does a SUPERB job narrating and I hope he continues to do so through book 6! Never a dull moment...Loaded with laughs, suspense, anxiety... I would DEFINITELY recommend this author and this series to everyone! (Hope Audible will carry all of this authors books soon!)
