    Story

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "Very much worth the listen"
    Overall

    Bill Bryson, the author, is an excellent writer and quite a good reader as well. The reading is charming and easy going even on topics that often boggle the mind. The book is basically the story of how we got the be where we are. It is the history, the story, of our planet and the life on our planet. It is not only a history of science but also a history of what we know (or think we know) and what we thought we knew. This story is told in an easy style with more than a little irreverence. You may hear information that you heard before but if you are not a student of the area it is an enchanting reminder.

    In 2010 world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness. Full of inspiration and wisdom, this book will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

    Would you listen to How Will You Measure Your Life? again? Why?

    yes, the process and assumptions are most interesting


    What other book might you compare How Will You Measure Your Life? to and why?

    Deep Survival by L. Gonzales. The story, analysis and process of how we look at, and understand, ourselves is very interesting.
