Listen and be inspired by the soothing baritone of award-winning narrator Mike Vendetti as he reads George Samuel Clason's classic The Richest Man in Babylon. Unless you were born wealthy or hit the lottery, this audiobook can be your path to financial security and success. The parables set in ancient Babylon and originally published in 1926 are as applicable today as they were in ancient times.

Excellent book with invaluable lessons but the narrator is very monotone and droning. I found it very hard to listen to.

When philandering Sir Giles Lynchwood decides it's time to wriggle free of his monumentally unattractive wife, Lady Maud, he knows divorce is out of the question. He can't leave her and keep her cash; a reversionary clause on her ancestral home, Handyman Hall, has taken care of that. Lady Maud, for her own special reasons, is also dying to see the back of Sir Giles.

Stirringly evocative, thought provoking, and often jaw dropping, The Operator ranges across SEAL Team Operator Robert O'Neill's awe-inspiring 400-mission career that included his involvement in attempts to rescue "Lone Survivor" Marcus Luttrell and abducted-by-Somali-pirates Captain Richard Phillips and culminated in those famous three shots that dispatched the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden.

An excellent book and brilliantly read by Rob O'Neill. Moments that will make you smile when you realise what these guys get up to and moments that will make you want to cry when you realise what these soldiers sacrafice and the heroes who have been lost. Altogether brilliant and thoroughly engrossing.

Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

Thoroughly engrossing and well written book and superbly read. There are plenty of moments where you have to pause to think how clever Kevin Mitnick was to do the things he did. The quality of the reader adds to the excitement.

Thoroughly enjoyed this version of Treasure Island. Faithful to the book but with enough dramatic licence to keep it original and entertaining and helped even further by a wonderful cast. Superb.
