There´s little debate that Robert De Niro is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, screen actors of his generation, perhaps of all time. His work, particularly in the first 20 years of his career, is unparalleled. Mean Streets, the Godfather Part II, Taxi Driver, the Deer Hunter, and Raging Bull all dazzled moviegoers and critics alike, displaying a talent the likes of which had rarely - if ever - been seen. De Niro become known for his deep involvement in his characters, assuming that role completely into his own life, resulting in extraordinary, chameleonic performances. Yet little is known about the off-screen De Niro - he is an intensely private man, whose rare public appearances are often marked by inarticulateness and palpable awkwardness. It can be almost painful to watch at times, in powerful contrast to his confident movie personae. In this elegant and compelling biography, best-selling writer Shawn Levy writes of these many De Niros - the characters and the man - seeking to understand the evolution of an actor who once dove deeply into his roles as if to hide his inner nature, and who now seemingly avoids acting challenges, taking roles which make few apparent demands on his overwhelming talent. Levy has had unprecedented access to De Niro´s personal research and production materials, creating a new impression of the effort that went into the actor´s legendary performances. Levy also spoke to De Niro´s collaborators and friends to depict De Niro´s transition from an ambitious young man to a transfixing and enigmatic artist and cultural figure. 1. Language: English.

Uber Taxi Cab Confessions is a whirlwind tour of true short stories viewed through the eyes of a part time Uber driver. You will be a passenger on every ride, discovering the hottest bars and restaurants and the secret after-hour clubs in Fairfield County as we pick up riders and take them to wherever they want to go. Your life changes once you turn on the Uber app. The show begins as soon as a rider opens the door to your cab. You never know what personality you will have to have until you greet your passenger. You may need to be a weatherman offering the latest forecast or acting as a political analyst. Sometimes you will have to be the rider´s personal shrink, and other times a comedian or an imaginative story teller. I now have acquired multiple personalities to match each rider´s MO. I must be pretty good at that. I get a five-star rating on almost every ride, plus I get crazy good tips by agreeing with everything they say. Confessions is a collection of what happens in the back seat of my Uber cab. Hear about the two chefs cooking in the back seat. Or the very intoxicated woman who leaves her dog in my cab. But one of the funniest stories is about the man who was so big, the backdoor had to be removed to get him out. The Uber concept is amazing. It´s so much fun to be a driver. I have included a list of tips and suggestions for both drivers and riders that are also very amusing. So buckle your seat belt and listen on. Included in the Uber Taxi Cab Confessions audiobook is a PDF file which contains over 35 chapter-by-chapter illustrations for your enjoyment, plus ´´clickable´´ links as mentioned in the book.
