    The best-selling author of No Shortcuts to the Top and K2 chronicles his three attempts to climb the world's tenth-highest and statistically deadliest peak, Annapurna in the Himalaya, while exploring the dramatic and tragic history of others who have made - or attempted - the ascent, and what these exploits teach us about facing life's greatest challenges.

    It's fascinating to listen to what drives various people to such great sacrifices. A great review of the peak's history.

  • The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery

    Is Earth merely an insignificant speck in a vast and meaningless universe? On the contrary: The Privileged Planet shows that this cherished assumption of materialism is dead wrong. In this provocative book, Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards present a staggering array of evidence that exposes the hollowness of this modern dogma.

    Story

    I first saw the documentary on these guys, and their book goes into so much more detail. I won't pretend to follow every detail of the science, but the basic arguments are clear and accessible. It's brilliant to see two guys who have the sense to step back and see the whole picture!

    Treasure Island must be the most enthralling adventure book ever written. As we listen to the voice of Jim Hawkins telling his extraordinary tale, and later that of his companion Dr. Livesey, we are plunged into a world of pirates, buried treasure, mutiny, and deceit.

    Jason says: "Rousing tale"

    Having never read Treasure Island, I didn't get references to it before. This was a good way to ingest a classic. Well narrated.

    Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's wildly popular course The Science of Willpower, The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity. Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters.

    Unless you're perfect with self-control, you need to listen to this book! Amazing. So many insights it requires multiple listens. I even bought the print version!
