This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

I stole the headline from a friend... but I agree 100 percent. A great read. Great insight. I'm convinced we can do manufacturing in this country again... and among many other things... Steve Jobs proves this as well. Let's all get inspired and get this country back on track!

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

...and so did my husband, who said he didn't want to listen to it. We were driving over to pick my car up from the shop, and I put it on. He was grumpy and said he didn't want to listen to anything (but that I could...he wouldn't mind). He was thinking about work and getting organized. In two minutes I heard muffled snickering coming from behind the steering wheel. It was the scene about the cruise. I was laughing hysterically... then he lost it too. Good all the way through.. just what she promised...really funny and very human. Nice to see someone so successful has kept her feet on the ground.
