  • The 48 Laws of Power

    Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers.

    "Horrible"
    Overall

    Couldn't get past the first few chapters. Horrible narration (over dramatized), and horrible content... "assume everyone else has an agenda, they're out to get you, life is win/lose, do what it takes, whatever you can get away with, and anyone who believes otherwise is naive".

  • Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning

    To most of us, learning something 'the hard way' implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head and will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.

    "The Inflation Debate": Our best explanation of how the universe evolved must be fixed – or replaced. "The Enemy Within": A new pattern of antibiotic resistance may soon leave us defenseless against a frighteningly wide range of dangerous bacterial infections. "Neuroscience in the Courtroom": Brain scans and other types of neurological evidence could transform judicial views of personal credibility and responsibility.

    Peter says: "Great content but they need a new narrator"
    "Content great, Narrator horrible"
    Overall

    After a several year hiatus from Audible Scientific American, I was dissapointed to find, upon re-subscribing, that the new narrator, Mark Moran, makes the magazine almost unlistenable.

    I think Mark could recover his career by listening to Ken Borgers or Todd Mundt (HBR). Even if he just read the way he converses. I mean, I can't imagine he talks this way to his co-workers or family... it would drive them crazy. Half the time when Mark reaches the end of a sentence, he rolls up in tone, as if he is mid-sentence. It makes it sound as if the entire article is one big run-on sentence. To top it off, he removes any pause between articles. So the entire issue sounds like one big run-on sentence. I can't imagine how this guy got the job. Someone's asleep at the helm.
