From the author of the New York Times best-selling Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism) comes Red Hot Lies, an exposé of the hypocrisy, deceit, and outright lies of the global warming alarmists and the compliant media that supports them. Did you know that most scientists are global-warming skeptics? Or that environmental alarmists have knowingly promoted false and exaggerated data on global warming?

I want to believe in Christopher C. Horner. A least the so called global warming is overrated.
Anyway is a pleasure to listen some convincing one from the other side.
But, seven billion in Earth? This is beyond over. You will see what they will do to the Seas.
Worth listening. Also Robert Dean is good.

This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

Would you listen to The Stand again? Why?

If I were to listen/read only one book of S. King this would be The One.

What other book might you compare The Stand to and why?

White Plague of Frank Herbert. Same post apocalyptic theme, a lot darker.

What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I am brasilian and I could easily understand his english voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When The Kid threatens the Trashcan Man.

Any additional comments?

Best book of King, ever.

  • The Disease to Please

  • Curing the People-Pleasing Syndrome

People pleasers are not just nice people who go overboard trying to make everyone happy. Those who suffer from the Disease to Please are people who say "Yes" when they really want to say "No". For them, the uncontrollable need for the elusive approval of others is an addiction. Their debilitating fears of anger and confrontation force them to use "niceness" and "people-pleasing" as self-defense camouflage.

Although this is a self help book it contains valuable and acessible information. Harriet Braiker is very very good in explaining the problem and remedies. She is not rosy, she is not tragic. Bernadette Dunne has a crystal clear pleasant voice. Maybe you think you don't need it. I dare say you are wrong.
