I'm nuts, a few of you might think...but I am a true believer in one man's trash is another's treasure.

And so I highlight the biggest disappointment in audio on my shelf.  Brand new, yet!  I ripped that wrapper off and shoved the first tape into the player...even made my husband listen as we both like the author, Michael Shaara (author of Killer Angels), and like Kevin Costner, and he made a fun movie out of this book.

So, we hated it, and couldn't even finish it.  Blah blah blah, was our opinion.  Never got to the story.  At least not the story that Kevin Costner told in the movie.  There was a wonderful, very interesting intro by the author's son, Jeff Shaara.

Here's the deal, if you want to take a chance on this audio, 5 3/4 hours UNabridged, you can take any other audio off my shelf for free.  Just PM me what you want extra.  Of course, if you prefer a free book instead, that would work, but you'd make out better with a free audio.

I've three audio books. They are cassettes. You can have them for 1 credit each, because I think 2 is overpriced. :P

The Dean Witter Guide to Personal Investing  (Pretty self explanatory title)

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781559352550-The+Dean+Witter+Guide+to+Personal+Investing

I'm Not in the Mood: What Every Woman Should Know About Improving Her Libido (again, pretty obvious)

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781559352932-Im+Not+in+the+Mood+What+Every+Woman+Should+Know+About+Improving+Her+Libido

A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures by Ben Bradlee 

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780671536862-A+Good+Life+Newspapering+and+Other+Adventures

On August 8, 1942, I graduated from Harvard by the skin of my teeth at 10 a.m. At noon, I was commissioned an ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve. And at 4 p.m., I married Jean Saltonstall, the first and only girl I had ever been with and I was on my way to someplace called the South Pacific. I was not yet 21...The education of Benjamin C. Bradlee was finally under way.

And so begins this witty, candid story of a daring young man who made his way to the heights of American journalism and public life, from a New Hampshire weekly through his foreign correspondent years in Europe, to the apex of his career at The Washington Post, whose Watergate coverage gave journalism its finest hours.

An eyewitness to most of the seminal events of our time, a good friend to President Kennedy and a dreaded foe of President Nixon, Bradlee watched and talked to most of the heroes and villains who were making such vivid history so fast. Taking the helm of The Washington Post in 1965, Bradlee and his reporters redefined the way the news is reported, published, and read; his leadership and investigative drive following the break-in at the Democratic National Committee led to the downfall of a president, and kept every president afterwards on his toes.

A Good Life is Bradlee's irreverent, earthy, and revealing look at modern American journalism -- and the extraordinary life story of the man who helped to reinvent it.

I only have two and they are both abridged cassettes.  They are both excellent books, but  I will send them both to you for 1 credit, because I've had them for quite a while--

We Are Driven :: Frank Minirth, Robert Hemfelt, Paul Meier

The American Family: Discovering the Values That Make Us Strong :: Dan Quayle, Diane Medved
