I drive for a living is this book gave me many hours of enjoyment on the road. The story whisk you away too far off fairytale land and brings you into the sword play in a way that makes it real. Pity that I'll never be able to visit the liens that are described in this book, that is the only pity.

In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

If you are questioning if you can really vote for this man, you questions should be answered in this book. He lays it all out on the table for everyone to see. Nothing to hide with President Obama in "The Audacity of Hope." Not to mention his story is amazing.

Atul Gawande explores how doctors strive for best performance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. His stories of diligence and ingenuity take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, to labor and delivery rooms in Boston, to a polio outbreak in India, and to malpractice courtrooms around the country. He discusses the ethical dilemmas of doctors' participation in lethal injections, examines the influence of money on medicine, and recounts the astoundingly contentious history of hand washing.

"Better" for having listened

Dr. Gawande delivers in a big way. I listened to Better and am now reading his freshman publication, "Complications" which is awesome as well. This book is not only information, adventuresome, and ethical, it is a must read for Medical personnel that want to do the most good for patients. The history that is presented in regards to hand washing is astounding! I know that I even look at hand washing and hand sanitizers differently now. Thank Dr. Gawande, you are a friend to every person that will ever enter the Operating Room, patient or care provider.

The title "The Prometheus Deception" is what originally grabbed my attention. I know that you should not judge a book by it's cover but I am glad I did in this instance. The Prometheus Deception is my kind of book. Suspense, travel, twists and turns, a wonderful listen. I wish that I could have had the unabridged version. I could have listened to this book for days!

He has done it again! Brazil is a country with so much adventure to offer and John Grisham gives it to you in literary work that will have wishing for younger days to comb through rain forests, thousands of miles from home. A great listen for anyone that loves suspense and adventure.

Christine Montross was a nervous first-year medical student, standing outside the anatomy lab on her first day of class, preparing herself for what was to come. Entering a room with stainless-steel tables topped by corpses in body bags is shocking, no matter how long you've prepared yourself, but a strange thing happened when Montross met her cadaver.

I loved this book from the moment I hit play. This book should be a mandatory listen for any student that is going to the Cadaver lab. I am taking A&P right now and will have Cadaver lab next semester and now have a better idea what to expect. God bless Dr. Montronss for this "Body of Work." I purchased the hard copy so that it could be in my collection. I have actually read a couple of chapters just because I love the way that she writes so much. From Delaware to Bolongna, Dublin, Ireland to San Francisco, this book has it all!
