    On May 2, 2008, an enormous tropical cyclone made landfall in Burma, wreaking untold havoc and leaving an official toll of 138,300 dead and missing. In the days that followed, the sheer scale of the disaster became apparent as information began to seep out from the hard-hit delta area.

    Story

    The book is tragic and sad but brings awareness to what is happening in Burma and what happens to a country under military rule. If you are interested in history and Asia, I would highly recommend this book.

    The story is well written and compelling as it unravels the story of the burmese after cyclone nargis. The reading also does an excellent job.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Story

    Could have lived without hearing his theory of evolution, which was woven throughout the book. But his personal story of running with the hidden tribe, and the characters that joined him on his journey are will worth getting past hearing his personal believes of evolution. Still this was the best written book I have heard all year. Truly, a well written piece of non-fiction that I highly recommend even through I disagree with his person theory.

    This book is so compelling that it will make you want to go for 30 mile run. The book is well written, and the reader is excellent.
