The term ´blog´ is short for ´Web log´, an online site with time-dated postings, maintained by one or more posters, that features links and commentary. That´s the most basic definition, but it is like saying a car is a means of transportation featuring four wheels. In Blog, syndicated radio talk show host and best-selling author Hugh Hewitt helps you catch up with and get ahead of this phenomenon.If you doubt the influence blogs have in society, think again. Better yet, just ask Senator Trent Lott regarding his comments at Strom Thurmond´s birthday celebration. Ask New York Times editor in chief Howell Raines about reporter Jayson Blair´s fabricated stories. Ask Dan Rather and CBS about President Bush´s National Guard documents faxed from a Texas Kinko´s. Or ask John Kerry about his battle with Swift Boat veterans. All of these major stories were fully covered by the mainstream media only after their exposure in the blogosphere.Until now no influential blogger has written a definitive book about this phenomenon, but in Blog, Hugh Hewitt helps you position yourself and your organization at the forefront of this information reformation. 1.

One woman´s story as she blogs about - and fights back against - the zombie apocalypse. Allison Hewitt and her five colleagues at the Brooks and Peabody Bookstore are trapped together when the zombie outbreak hits. Allison reaches out for help through her blog, writing on her laptop and utilizing the military´s emergency wireless network (SNET). It may also be her only chance to reach her mother. But as the reality of their situation sinks in, Allison´s blog becomes a harrowing account of her edge-of-the-seat adventures (with some witty sarcasm thrown in) as she and her companions fight their way through ravenous zombies and sometimes even more dangerous humans. Narrated by Piper Goodeve and a full cast. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Piper Goodeve. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/003022/bk_adbl_003022_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
