    Story
    (48)

    This rich, timely, and highly original portrait of the Buddha explores both the archetypal religious icon and Buddha the man. In lucid and compelling prose, Armstrong brings to life the Buddha's quest, from his renunciation of his privileged life to the discovery of a truth that he believed would utterly transform human beings and enable them to live at peace in the midst of life's suffering.

    Fred says: "Buddha (Unabridged)"

    A well written, insightful and illuminating biography of Gotama and his teachings. A must read for anyone interested in Buddhism.

    Story
    (177)

    In this endlessly fascinating book, New Yorker columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea that has profound implications: large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant. Groups are better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.

    G Barth says: "Very worthwhile listen!"
    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    Fantastic and fascinating book. Recommended for anyone who likes counterintuitive analysis.
