Honey bees - and the qualities associated with them - have quietly influenced American values for four centuries. During every major period in the country's history, bees and beekeepers have represented order and stability in a country without a national religion, political party, or language. Bees in America is an enlightening cultural history of bees and beekeeping in the United States. Tammy Horn, herself a beekeeper, offers a varied social and technological history from the colonial period, when the British first introduced bees to the New World, to the present, when bees are being used by the American military to detect bombs.

The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street.

It was so much more enjoyable to listen as an adult then read as a student in school. The characters came alive as the story unfolded. Great performance by Anthony Healds.

Is it okay for Katniss to break the law to ensure her family's survival?

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunger Games and Philosophy to be better than the print version?

I found listening allowed me to review and contemplate how the characters interacted among each other. I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster of all the Hunger games books. The Philosophy of the Hunger games ties all of the actions together for the listener to understand why certain actions were taken by the characters. A very good series of audio books that are more entertaining to listen too, than read.
