5.0 out of 5 stars A Historical Journey of the Little Beer Company that Could!, January 28, 2007
After about 10 years of indulging in Tom Schlafly's products and enjoying the fine food they serve at his restaurants I was excited to see that he had written a book of his David versus Goliath journey in the St Louis beer industry. I was even more excited this Friday night to get to meet him at a book signing event and have a sip with him of his new "No. 15" brew to commemorate their 15th anniversary in St Louis.

Anyway enough of how I came into the possession of this fine book, which can be read in a matter of hours, and on with the review. Not only is Tom a great person and business man but he also has incredible writing talents. As the story unfolds and you are taken on journey of not only Schlafly's rise in the St Louis brewing arena but a historical recount of his beloved town, family, partners, and even his rivals at AB (or the Brewery as it is called in St Louis). Readers of biographies as well as many other reading genres will enjoy this great account of an American business triumph by the little beer company that could! Good luck Tom we hope to enjoy your products and wit for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Other Way to be There - Except a Time Machine, June 9, 2000
Steven Lang's voice brought chills to this "feel like your there" book. I could feel the cold. I could see General Lee on his horse. I could sense the creaking of the wood as Federal troops crossed the creek for the battle of Fredricksburg. I had a clear view of the gold buttons on "Stonewall" Jackson's uniform, and I could smell the gunpowder, and see the cannon flashes. No better way to catch a glimpse into the minds of Generals on both sides of the war. Don't miss this one if you really enjoy audiobooks and the Civil War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story!, November 23, 1999
Take the great ideas of Tom Clancy and add them with the great audio voice of Jay O. Sanders and you have a great work! A few little errors in culture and language shouldn't deter a fan of Clancy from listening to this book...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Journey!, November 23, 1999
For those that like or dislike the Civil War this book is well worth your time. A very interesting way to see the long term effects of the Civil War. Facts and figures are great and Michael Beck does a great job on the voices...

This review is from: Rites of Spring (Paperback)
Ecksteins weaves a never before told story of how modernity and culture played a strong role in Europe in the 20th century, especially in Germany during WWI. A really tough read that will pay dividends with completion...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, June 15, 1999
This review is from: Storming Heaven (Audio Cassette)
This was a fantastic audio, Foxworth is great! I usually only listen while travelling or exercise, but I found myself with headset on at home listening while doing other work. Dale Brown as usual is right on with vivid desciptions and fabulous detail.
