    Story

    It's rare that a non-fiction book can be this exciting, this compelling, and this gory! Hot Zone certainly gets detailed, and I loved every second of it. Preston did an OUTSTANDING job researching this topic, and really becoming an expert on it. The way he crafted a story that will keep you guessing is nothing short of genius. Narrarator is outstanding. Overall, I'd rather read/listen to this non-fiction book than ANY of the fictional virus stories I've read. Yes, it's THAT good!

    A highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest suddenly appears in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. There is no cure. In a few days, 90 percent of its victims are dead. A secret military SWAT team of soldiers and scientists is mobilized to stop the outbreak of this exotic "hot" virus. The Hot Zone tells this dramatic story, giving a hair-raising account of the appearance of rare and lethal viruses and their "crashes" into the human race. Shocking, frightening, and impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone proves that truth really is scarier than fiction.

    Story

    Every woman should read this, ESPECIALLY if you're going to have children. It goes into great detail about the environmental and dietary pollutants that can poison breast milk. Tells you the things you should stay away from. It also discusses the benefits of different tests you can have done on your breasts, blood, and breast milk.

    If you're a guy (like me) and your wife is pregnant, it wouldn't be a bad idea to read this, just to familiarize yourself with all the options out there. It touches briefly on male breast cancer, which I found fascinating--- and scary. In all honesty, if you're a guy, you probably won't enjoy this book. However, it's best to take the approach that you'll be reading it more as a favor to your significant other.

    The reader is very good. It's a science book, but written more like satire, which should hold your interest.

Her investigation follows the life cycle of the breast from puberty to pregnancy to menopause, taking her from a plastic surgeon's office, where she learns about the importance of cup size in Texas, to the laboratory, where she discovers the presence of environmental toxins in her own breast milk.

    This is a close up of the miracle Paul Farmer has brought to Haiti. Along the way, you get a first hand look at the obstacles that he overcomes and more than a glimpse at what drives Paul Farmer. Beyond that, you'll learn a lot about the challenge of fighting TB. Solid narration.

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

    "really interesting, but longwinded"

    Overall

    Michael Pollan created a very comprehensive volume on the range of complexities, implications and unintended consequences of producing food. Moreover, Scott Brick, the narrator is absolutely first rate. After a great first half, unless you want to learn about the authors feelings about hunting and his experiences collecting mushrooms and preparing dinner for friends, don't even bother with part 2. Overall though, Pollan did a great job of laying out the range and detail of issues involved in organic as well as industrial farming, both on a small scale and large scale.

  • "Anatomy of an Epidemic"

    11 of 12 helpful votes

    During the Great Flu epidemic of WWI, there was an epidemic of encephalitis lethargica —or “sleeping sickness”— that left its victims permanently disabled, a plague of catatonic lethargy. Some people were comatose for years-- and it could recur at any time.

    What was it?

    This medical-mystery drama, by award-winning reporter Molly Caldwell Crosby, follows the doctors, scientists, and patients of the time as they tried to solve the origins of this disease.

    You may remember Oliver Sacks’s "Awakenings" chronicled his work curing the sleeping sickness victim. But science has yet to find the cause of the epidemic, the "why?"

    Crosby's book turns a corner in these “sleep” conversations that will have you wide awake to the most chilling prospects yet.

    In 1918, a world war raged, and a lethal strain of influenza circled the globe. In the midst of all this death, a bizarre disease appeared in Europe. Eventually known as encephalitis lethargica, or sleeping sickness, it spread worldwide, leaving millions dead or locked in institutions. Then, in 1927, it disappeared as suddenly as it had arrived. Asleep, set in 1920s and '30s New York, follows a group of neurologists through hospitals and asylums as they try to solve this epidemic and treat its victims - who learned the worst fate was not dying of it, but surviving it.

    Who among us will overcome cancer, and why will we be able to? Who among us will be defeated by cancer, and why will we be? Typically, advanced medicines and modern equipments could treat most deadly sicknesses nowadays, but the veracity is almost the complete opposite for lethal cancer. Commonly yet characteristically, how are cancerous tumors created to begin with? How can we prevent ourselves from high risks of having cancer? How can we help ourselves fight against fatal cancer?

    As sentient beings, we all know that we will die someday, but by the same token, we all fear of death. Even if death sounds really scary, all of us are willing not only to take high risks but also to subject ourselves to dangers throughout our whole lives, regardless of whether we realize it or not. Why is it so? It is simply because none of us believes in the ephemeral nature of life. When death comes to strangers, to our neighbors, to our blood relatives, and even to our family members, we still serenely live with the mentality that death will never come to us.

Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

A brief, but insightful look at history shows the evolution of combat, the development of the physical and psychological leverage that enables humans to kill other humans, followed by an objective examination of domestic violence in America.
