This book should be required reading for everyone.
If the general population would open their eyes and minds to the truth, the world would be a much better place. Disclosure is obviously not going to voluntarily happen, it’s people like this who tell the true stories of what really happened, and is ongoing.

David M. Potter's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Impending Crisis is the definitive history of antebellum America. Potter's sweeping epic masterfully charts the chaotic forces that climaxed with the outbreak of the Civil War: westward expansion, the divisive issue of slavery, the Dred Scott decision, John Brown's uprising, the ascension of Abraham Lincoln, and the drama of Southern secession.

Everyone's favorite houseguest who never left, Leon Black (played by award-winning comedian JB Smoove from HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm), drops his wisdom and good-bad advice for the masses. Learn the secrets Larry David has gleaned from the Falstaff of television. Be forewarned: in opening this audiobook and Leon's mind, you need to be prepared for straight talk. The kind of unfiltered blunt straight talk that pounds on your door, invites itself in, makes itself at home, and helps itself to your food, your security pass code, and your expensive organic beet juice.

They were the last great band of the '60s and the first great band of the '70s. They rose, somewhat unpromisingly, from the ashes of the Yardbirds to become one of the biggest-selling rock bands of all time - and eventually paid the price for it, with disaster, drug addiction, and death.

Was a bit leery of this book at first listen however it grew on me. lots of information I never realized about the band. Enjoyed the positions the players were in as the various albums and tours were done. Was really taken aback on the amount of interaction the various musicians of the era had with each other. The narratives were sill however enjoyed hearing the english slang from the 60's and 70's. Very well worth the time.

Van Halen's rise in the 1980s was one of the most thrilling the music world had ever seen - their mythos an epic party, a sweaty, sexy, never-ending rock extravaganza. During this unparalleled run of success, debauchery, and drama, no one was closer to the band than Noel Monk. Throughout Van Halen's meteoric rise and abrupt halt, this confidant, fixer, friend, and promoter saw it all and lived to tell. Now, for the first time, he shares the most outrageous escapades.

The narration was very well done on this book. The story was good and interesting. A fired manager viewpoint of the happenings of the band through the end of the first iteration of Van Halen. I would have liked more of how the individual albums came together however he explains he was not around for that aspect. We'll worth the time to listen, especially if you are a fan of the original band

Mirabelle, the "shopgirl" behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus, is slightly lost, off-kilter, and shy. But there's something about Mirabelle. Steve Martin reads this charming novella. Hear an interview with the author and browse more Martin.

This is a wonderful story, short by many reader’s standards, I’m sure; but well worth a credit.

Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

Great story line. Keeps you engaged and moves along at a good pace. Very well written. Narrator did a great job as well. I could see a series written off this premise. An enjoyable couple of hours.
I got this on a daily deal. Not long enough to be worth a credit, in my opinion. But well worth a listen!

America's Great Plains once possessed one of the grandest wildlife spectacles of the world, equaled only by such places as the Serengeti, the Masai Mara, or the veld of South Africa. Pronghorn antelope, gray wolves, bison, coyotes, wild horses, and grizzly bears: less than 200 years ago these creatures existed in such abundance that John James Audubon was moved to write "it is impossible to describe or even conceive the vast multitudes of these animals".

Very interesting book on the American great Plains. Has an intro and conclusion. The body is broken into segments of the various animals of the plains area. Great way to do this. There was a number of reviews about the narrator doing a poor job. I thought he did a fine job. Very well worth the time to listen to.
