Would you try another book from Adrian Tweeley and/or Weston Gritt?

NO

Would you ever listen to anything by Adrian Tweeley again?

Maybe not

Any additional comments?

The book is read like a computer voice. 90% of the book is fluff telling you WHY you need to improve brain function. Duh, that's why I bought this book. Almost no time is spent teaching you or sharing with you techniques on how to. Yes a little is shared but you have to listed to 1 hour of why you need to, and 60 seconds of how with a simple example. What a waste. I kept hopping it would get better. The some info is repeated over and over again, and he constantly recommends that you buy a book or training course on HOW to improve your brain. So the title should be WHY YOU NEED TO ENHANCE YOUR BRAIN. Because not much how to here. And they goes off on how to take pictures, and camera types and settings, and how to be a professional photographer. Oh and special info on how to MAIL your pictures through the Post Office to get them scanned. Really? When was this book written. It's new on Audible. REFUND!

More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

Where does Killing Kennedy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to 30 books and this is my favorite. It was a great story if you want to know more about political history. I can't comment on the accuracy, but Bill did a good read, kept my interest, and I really learned a lot of things in history that surprised me. I loved this book.

What other book might you compare Killing Kennedy to and why?

Killing Lincoln

What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

Loud, easy to understand, a good performance. No Complaint.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Killing Kennedy says it all.

Any additional comments?

I don't comment much, but if you have an interest in Kennedy, this book is pretty informative.

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls facing our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may well be difficult for some parents to swallow: we are in the midst of a crisis with our kids.

The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been. It never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, he has dismantled society's sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems. In No, They Can't, the New York Times best-selling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the "perfect" government - left or right - and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals - and fast.

I thought this was book was about TRUMP, but its about how George Ross negotiates for Trump, or likeTrump. But its excellent. Very good content, very detailed, and always brings the examples not only about Billion dollar deals, but simple consumer deals too. Normally I'm happy if I could use 10% of the books knowledge. This book is mostly content and not much fluff and I can use about 50% of the content. This book is about, well what the title says it is about. Very happy with the Narrator too.

As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

I really enjoyed this book. It is Abridged, but don't let that scare you as it is still very detailed. I didn't listen to the enabridged version, but I cannot image I missed anything. The sound quality was great. I had no issues. I think I have my settings set to download enhanced or something. The Narrater is just awesome. He is clear easy to understand and very enjoyable to listen too. He uses different voices for each character and before long you start to recognize each charater voice. This made it very easy to follow along.
I highly recommend this book. Great story, yet has a very important message. Ayn Rand wrote this book so long ago as a foresight to what will happen if the government controls society for our safety and fairness. LISTEN TO IT.
