    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Plastic built the modern world. Where would we be without bike helmets, baggies, toothbrushes, and pacemakers? But a century into our love affair with plastic, we're starting to realize it's not such a healthy relationship. Plastics draw dwindling fossil fuels, leach harmful chemicals, litter landscapes, and destroy marine life. As journalist Susan Freinkel points out in this engaging and eye-opening book, we're nearing a crisis point.

    Danya says: "Immensely entertaining and informative"

    What disappointed you about Plastic?

    To much little details about not important things like for ex. the curves and of a specific chair
    created by....bla bla bla....


    What could Susan Freinkel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Perhaps more in depth research for more substance regarding the subject


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Plastic?

    Most of the historical(insignificant)details of plastic products(like chairs and designers taste, ect)
