  • Death's Acre: Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab The Body Farm Where the Dead Do Tell Tales

    Nowhere is there another lab like Dr. Bill Bass's: on a hillside in Tennessee, human bodies decompose in the open air, aided by insects, bacteria and birds, unhindered by coffins or mausoleums. At the "Body Farm," nature takes its course, with corpses buried in shallow graves, submerged in water, concealed beneath slabs of concrete, locked in trunks of cars. As stand-ins for murder victims, they serve the needs of science, and the cause of justice.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I am from the Knoxville area originally and most of the crimes he discussed were familiar to me. It was very interesting to hear how he helped to solve them. I think Dr. Bass is a terrific storyteller and the book kept my interest. It takes you a step further than CSI and gives you a lot of background on how time of death is determined, etc. Highly recommended if you are at all interested in the topic of forensics.

  • Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America

    Can man live on fast food alone? Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For 30 days, he ate nothing but three "squares" a day from McDonald's as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary won him resounding applause and a worldwide release that broke box-office records. Audiences were captivated by Spurlock's experiment, during which he gained 25 pounds, his blood pressure skyrocketed, and his libido all but disappeared.

    Jeff says: "A must-read!"

    Overall

    I hated this book. I even got depressed listening to it. Not only is it a recycled version of Supersize Me, it is basically a 7 hour rant against McDonalds. I was left wondering what McDonalds had originally done to him to make him so angry! After all, it was HIS idea to make the movie about the McDonalds diet for 30 days - they didn't come after him and ask him to do it. I think his intentions about nutrition are probably good, but after listening to 7 hours of ranting against fast food, all you want to do is go get a cheeseburger. Not recommended.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"
    "Wonderful book!"
    Overall

    This was the best book I have read (or heard!) in a long time. Truly engrossing. Best Audible download ever!

  • The Murderer Next Door: Why the Mind is Designed to Kill

    As acclaimed psychological researcher and author David Buss writes, "People are mesmerized by murder. It commands our attention like no other human phenomenon, and those touched by its ugly tendrils never forget." Though we may like to believe that murderers are pathological misfits and hardened criminals, the vast majority of murders are committed by people who, until the day they kill, would seem to be perfectly normal.

    Excruciatingly boring. Way too much evolutionary analysis. Literally put me to sleep.
