It's the complete second season of The Ricky Gervais Show - six episodes in one tidy package. It's packed full of all-new drivel, as Ricky and Steve Merchant forage through the long grass of Karl Pilkington's brain.

Absolutely hilarious. Wish these seasons were longer! Karl Pilkington is one of my favorite people to watch and listen to. I would listen to him read the phone book.

From the summer of 1979 through the spring of 1981, Atlanta, Georgia, was held under siege by a serial killer, and dozens of victims started to appear. The series of murders, which became known as the “Atlanta Child Murders case”, gripped the city of Atlanta with fear and shocked the nation because most of the victims were children. In this true-crime audiobook, you will hear about how the Atlanta Child Murders case put a city under siege and how a task force of law-enforcement officers from several different agencies eventually captured the killer.

Having never heard of the Atlanta Child Murders I was fascinated by the crimes. The book went into the perfect amount of detail, I thought, to truly tell the story. This was my first Rosewood book and I'm excited to check out the others. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

While he's not quite a household name, most people would consider H. Jon Benjamin, the voice-actor star of Archer and Bob's Burgers (and a sentient can of mixed vegetables in 2015's Wet Hot American Summer) a comedy show business success. But he'd like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. In a hilarious, self-deprecating memoir, Jon lays out some of his many failures in all areas of life, from Work ("wherein I'm unable to deliver a sizzling fajita") to Family ("wherein a trip to PF Chang's fractures a family").

While there are a couple chapters that kind of dragged on, Benjamin has a way of retelling his life's stories that are hilarious. It also helps that I envision Bob Belcher is telling me the story. Well worth your time and effort. When I needed a good, funny, pick-me-up after a long day this is the audiobook I turned to.

Such an interesting memoir of her life and career. I've always been a fan, but my respect for her grew so much after listening to this book. It's well worth your time.

Evoking days gone by when coaches were respected as much for their off-court performances as for their success on the court, Wooden presents the timeless wisdom of legendary basketball coach John Wooden. In honest and telling passages about virtually every aspect of life, Coach shares his personal philosophy on family, achievement, success, and excellence. Raised on a small farm in south-central Indiana, he offers lessons and wisdom learned throughout his career at UCLA, and life as a dedicated husband, father, and teacher.

Anything regarding Coach Wooden is worth the read/listen. His values are timeless. I use his pyramid in my life as I coach youth sports. Do yourself a favor and listen.

Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens of all sizes.

I loved Freaks and Geeks and was very excited to listen to this book. Like many of the reviewers have said, the book was so self indulging that I had a hard time finishing it. I get that a memoir is one's own journey, but it was too Valley Girl for me.
