    Story
    (742)

    Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers' genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship.

    Teddy says: "If you have an open mind... Give it a listen"
    "I found it very interesting!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book, I was afraid it would be a sort of enviro nut type of story, but the author does a decent job of keeping it logical aside from a few global warming references it was very educational. This is the type of book I wouldn't normal download but was glad I did, I will never look at apples and especially potatoes the same way.

    Story

    As president of Shell Oil, John Hofmeister was known for being a straight shooter, willing to challenge his peers throughout the industry. Now, he's a man on a mission, the founder of Citizens for Affordable Energy, crisscrossing the country in a grassroots campaign to change the way we look at energy in this country.

    David says: "Intelligent and Realistic"
    "Learned a little, sort of expected different."
    Overall

    First, I had anticipated more in depth info in regards to oil comany profits etc.. how much they make per gallon etc..He just explores alternative forms of energy and how they will and will not work. I did enjoy some sections but towards the end when his big solution was to create a new government agency to handle our energy crisis, and comparing it the succesfull fed reserve I almost threw my mp3 player out the window. He blames politicians then claims they are the answer?

  • The Age of Reagan: A History, 1974-2008

    Story
    (15)

    In The Age of Reagan, Sean Wilentz offers a fresh, brilliant chronicle of America's political history since the fall of Nixon. The past 35 years have marked an era of conservatism. Although briefly interrupted in the late 1970s and temporarily reversed in the 1990s, a powerful surge from the Right has dominated American politics and government.

    John says: "Impressive Achievement"
    "Not what I was hoping for"
    Overall

    The first I don't know how many hours are basically about the evil Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld,and how great Jimmy Carter was. When he finally gets to Reagan he is very biased in that he very light touches on the pros and digs into the cons. I wish had read the reviews before purchasing.
