  • "I felt I was there"

    Bikel's wonderful narration brings this story to life. Listening to this book provides a birds eye view of the birth of Israel. Terrific detail on the personalities and day-to-day battles from both sides...Arab and Israeli.

    O Jerusalem! is the epic drama of 1948, when Arabs and Jews fought for control of the city of Jerusalem. This story traverses centuries and continents, covering the time between WWII and the creation of the independent state of Israel. Based on five years of intensive research and thousands of interviews, this is a story of courage, terrorism, heroism, and ultimately, war.

    Great distillation of what exactly "global warming" is. In only a few hours, the book provides solid info on the past, present and future implications of global warming. Beyond the info, I thought the narrator was one of the best I've ever heard at Audible.

    Somalia, on the tip of the Horn of Africa, has been inhabited as far back as 9,000 B.C. Its history is as rich as the country is old. Caught up in a decades-long civil war, Somalia, along with Iraq and Afghanistan, has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Getting there is a forty-five-hour, five-flight voyage through Frankfurt, Dubai, Djibouti, Bosasso (on the Gulf of Aden), and, finally, Galkacyo. Somalia is a place where a government has been built out of anarchy.

Anandasubramanian's greatest hits:
  • Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety

    "Chilling !"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    It's a miracle that we haven't had an accidental full-scale detonation of a H-bomb.

    The author tears apart the myth that the military has the utmost safety standards for building, maintaining, storing and transporting nuclear weapons.

    Heck, if I run my business the way the military runs its nuclear program, I would be in jail, for a long time.

    The author clearly documents the stumbling way the military went through arming the nation to the teeth with dodgy nuclear weapons with a safety record that was criminally insane. The fact that none of those responsible have been prosecuted clearly shows the military-industrial complex power and reach.

    Bureaucracy that refused to adopt higher safety standards, refused proper communication protocols during Korean and Vietnam wars, the battle between military and civilians over who should control nuclear weapons, and the stupidity of Lemay who got branded as a Nazi even though he fought against them... all are laid out bare.

    I shudder to think what would have happened if an accidental detonation had happened. Heck, if such a thing had happened after 9/11, the US would be at war with nations that had nothing to do with it.

    Nuclear safety is a myth.

  • Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA

    "Well titled"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    1) Regime change did not start with Bush or Iraq. It started with Eisenhower.

    2) JFK was not all Camelot. He made the CIA intervene in internal affairs of many countries than any of his predecessors. His obsession with killing Castro and his subsequent assassination may or may not be revenge killing.

    3) CIA is not all great as its myth. It was brilliantly bad at its core purpose (to collect intelligence). It was good at wetware operations and regime changes.

    4) The CIA was almost always wrong with its intelligence reports, so bad in fact not one President trusted it. Except for the Israeli war, it was wrong on ALL counts.

    5) The CIA did not win the Cold war. The USSR lost it.

    6) The sheer amount of useless lives lost due to CIA carelessness is criminal.

    7) The CIA was a bastard child since its inception was vetoed by the President who refused to sign the declaration and killed the OSS.

  • Dark Pools: High-Speed Traders, A.I. Bandits, and the Threat to the Global Financial System

    "Not as great as Too Big to Fail, but OK"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you like best about Dark Pools? What did you like least?

    How NYSE fought electronic trading and sought to preserve the profits with non-decimal brokerage and Market maker's free comission.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Scott Patterson? Why or why not?

    Of course. He is a good author and have read his previous book: Quant.


    What didn’t you like about Byron Wagner’s performance?

    Sometimes the context is absent. Like he shows excitement AFTER reading the exciting passage.
    Take for instance Ray Porter and the Jonathan Mayberry series. That was a brilliant narrator.


    What did you take away from Dark Pools that you can apply to your work?

    Learnt about Liquidity Management, Risk & Trading, trading book losses and how to jump the queue: legally.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott: Please don't meander your story. Be specific like Quants was.

    The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power.

    James says: "A concise account of an originalist viewpoint"

    In the spring of 2010 the world watched for weeks as more than 200 million gallons of crude oil billowed from a hole three miles deep in the Gulf of Mexico. Warnings of various and imminent environmental consequences dominated the news. Deepwater drilling - largely ignored or misunderstood to that point - exploded in the American consciousness in the worst way possible. Fire on the Horizon, written by veteran oil rig captain John Konrad and longtime Washington Post journalist Tom Shroder, recounts in vivid detail the life of the rig itself, from its construction to its improbable journey in the year 2000 to its end.

Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

People still reeling from catastrophe were being hit again, this time with economic "shock treatment": losing their land and homes to rapid-fire corporate makeovers.

Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped - but Shin Dong-hyuk did.

    Hundreds of thousands of people die every year from malaria. No one's quite sure of the exact number. It's just too difficult to keep track of the disease as it tears through more than 200 million cases each year, many of them in countries wracked by war and blighted by other problems. In The Deadly Air, Christian Jennings mixes together his own experiences of suffering from malaria with a history of mankind's struggle with the disease.

    C S Lewis's philosophical defence of Natural Law (absolute morality) - without which human beings are reduced to less than fully human, and are, thus ‘abolished'. CS Lewis argues that objective value actually exists and that to believe otherwise is to create nonsense. Human beings appreciate values such as beauty and goodness because such things are part of reality - but if absolute morality is denied there will not be any progress for mankind as the things that matter most will be explained away.
