    Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Don’t believe it? Well, consider this: For nonbelievers, every day you’re alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life to the fullest like Penn Jillette - the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn & Teller - whose spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike.

    Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home. To remedy this, he formed the idea of journeying about his house from room to room to “write a history of the world without leaving home.”

    I love Bill Bryson, and its such a pleasure to have a title that he also reads himself. Bryson makes the most seemingly mundane things absolutely fascinating. If you liked "A Short History of Nearly Everything", you'll love this.

    Story

    In his giant New York Times best seller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction. What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction. No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

    Story

    The best audiobooks are the ones that are read by the author. And the best of those are the ones where the author has a great voice, and Steyn is one of those guys. Best of all, he's smart AND he's funny. You can't beat that.

    I read this book and then went and bought the audiobook to hear it read to me again. Its that good.

    And Steyn is right on the money about EVERYTHING, but even if you don't agree with his politics, he's still fascinating.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    David Bodanis demystifies the world's most famous equation, explaining its science and bringing it to life. He makes clear the astonishing array of discoveries and consequences it made possible and its impact on our daily lives. At last, the masses can understand that Einstein did nothing less than open the door to the inner structure of the universe.

    What made the experience of listening to E=mc2 the most enjoyable?

    Its a fascinating topic, and the concept is great.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I now, more or less, get what E=MC2 really means


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I didn't like his voice or his intonation. Pit, because its great material. Deserved someone better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really that kind of book
