    Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless story of the pig named Wilbur and the wise spider named Charlotte who saved him has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere. This 1953 Newbery Honor Book comes to life in a delightful unabridged recording, read lovingly by the author himself.

    Overall

    Good reading of a great book. My 6 year old son loved it. We listened to it in the car and it entertained the adults as well.

    Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy Kidder tells the true story of a socially conscious genius who uses his intellectual and personal gifts to solve global health problems.

    "Opened my eyes"
    Overall

    Although Dr. Paul Farmer is only human and has faults as other reviewers have pointed out, his sacrifice, love and advocacy for the poorest of the poor in Haiti moved me in a way I never would have thought possible. Even more powerful was the way Tracy Kidder made me acutely aware of the terrible conditions and suffering of the impoverished people in Haiti and Peru. I wish everyone in the developed world would read this book and, like me, have their eyes opened to the terrible conditions in which so many people live. This book gave me a desire to relieve suffering wherever I find it and to do something for people in Haiti and elsewhere who can do very little to help themselves.

  • Albert Einstein: Creator and Rebel

    Story
    (9)

    This intimate portrait of Albert Einstein reveals the "backward" child, the academic outcast, the reluctant world celebrity, the exile, the pacifist, the philosopher, the humanitarian, the tragically saddened "father" of the atomic bomb, and above all, the unceasing searcher after scientific truth.

    Bookini says: "Excellent intro into the world of Einstein"
    "Excellent intro into the world of Einstein"
    Overall

    I have listened to 4 or 5 biographical books offered by Audible about Einstein. This one is best as an introduction to the man and his theories. Fascinating account of a complex man. I felt this one was best also for a general audience, as it does not require a deep understanding of physics.
