  Title & Author Description
Eugenics and Other EvilsEugenics and Other Evils
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
"Eugenics and Other Evils," by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. I think G.K. Chesterton explains his book rather well in his introduction, but it might help to start with a sense of the time in question. Chesterton started work on Eugenics and Other Evils in about 1910, but it was not completed and published until 1922. In his own introduction he talks about the period before and after "The War." The war he refers to is now called World War One. We now have a distaste for the word Eugenics,...
HereticsHeretics
G.K. Chesterton
"Heretics," a series of essays by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. First published in 1905. Read by David "Grizzly" Smith. Chesterton had a sense of humor, had a sense of drama, and had sense. He was a man of strong opinions, and quite willing to argue vehemently for his own opinions, even with his friends -- and they remained his friends -- like George Bernard Shaw and Rudyard Kipling. Seems to me that is hard to find anymore. He wrote prolifically. He wrote humor. He wrote mystery novels,...
OrthodoxyOrthodoxy
G.K. Chesterton
"Orthodoxy," a series of essays by Gilbert Keith Chesterton. First published in 1908. Read by David "Grizzly" Smith. "The only possible excuse for this book is that it is an answer to a challenge. Even a bad shot is dignified when he accepts a duel." This is how Chesterton explains "Orthodoxy," the sequel to Heretics. "I have attempted in a vague and personal way, in a set of mental pictures rather than in a series of deductions, to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. I...

    Superbly read audio books. Was a bit put off to begin with because the man had an american accent, but his voice is pleasant and his pronunciation is pleasing.

    Thanks. :) My philosophy, rather than do a bad Brit accent, not many folks think of themselves as having an accent, Chesterton included I'd suppose. Understand and convey the author's message as the author would as best you can manage. If you're bad, a fake accent won't help. If you're not bad, a fake accent isn't needed.

    I have always enjoyed the contrast that I have seen between the Metallica/ Megadeth brand of thrash, and that of Anthrax. While all thrash has more than a little dose of punk thrown into it, Anthrax have always seemed to veer further to the punk side of life than their Californian contemporaries. I am sure that this has a lot to do with their exposure to the thriving New York punk scene in the 80s.

    Dear Mr. Smith,

    Thank you a lot for these wonderful audiobooks. I usually listen to them on bed and I have the impression that Chesterton personally is speaking to me. The music is great too. You really did a wonderful job!
