Borderline Personality Disorder. "What the hell was that?" raged Rachel Reiland when she read the diagnosis written in her medical chart. As the 29-year old accountant, wife, and mother of young children would soon discover, it was the diagnosis that finally explained her explosive anger, manipulative behaviors, and self-destructive episodes- including bouts of anorexia, substance abuse, and sexual promiscuity.

The 1990's movie has nothing to do with the book, so don't expect a similar story.

In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

Monumental story of determination and strength of character. After listening to this book you come to realise the quality of men who built an Empire.
Simon Preble is totally up to the task. By the modulation of his voice you come to experience the ordeal those heroic men underwent.
Bravo!

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.

What would have made Killing Kennedy better?

Telling the truth. Or by telling the truth, he would have upset his friend, George W. Bush (senior). What a travesty!

Would you ever listen to anything by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard again?

Yes: don't allow fakes in - they compromise the credibility of Audible, as a company.

This humorous and nostalgic novel takes the listener back to the carefree days of boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up.

Just what did boys do in a small Midwestern town during the mid-1800s, a time when there were no televisions, no arcades, and no videos? They whitewashed fences, floated down rivers, traded marbles, formed secret societies, smoked pipes, and, on occasion, managed to attend their own funerals.

The Gospel of Luke is a beautifully and meticulously written account of the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this topical series, Pastor Skip Heitzig touches on a number of stories, parables, and teachings of Jesus that show his compassion for outcasts and how we are to live the Christian life.

This is a rendition of the Book of Romans, as taught by a Christian Pastor to his church. It's not an audiobook as others are.
You need to be a Christian to appreciate it.

But it's just fantastic! This book is fundamental for understanding what Christianity is all about and Pastor Skip Heitzig does a capital job of commenting it.

Great performance! You can tell he is gifted for the Ministry and particularly for Teaching (both are gifts of the Spirit).
