Yet again, reality is weirder that fiction. What a great story. Obviously this book it perfectly narrated.
I loved almost every word of this book. It was entertaining, funny, and full of the advice I hope my kids will listen to. Heck, I got a life lesson or three from it.
Once again... a very enjoyable listen. If this isn't nice, what is?
Yngwie did a fantastic job on this book. Entertainment throughout. And now, if I had a cat, I'd have to rename it Yngwie J. Meowsteen.
This book was exactly what I was hoping it would be. It explains the evidence in this case, and does a great job explaining why the outcome came out the way it did.
Vincent Bugliosi really lets loose is his thoughtful insightful way. The book moves along at a brisk pace, which totally suits the material.
Joseph Campenella seamed the perfect narrator for this book... although his voice kept bringing me back to memories of his `Science International` TV spots from the 70s.
This book is packed full of interesting information, but I did find myself rolling my eyes at much of the preachy content. I would recommended this book to everyone, but caution that you take it with a grain of salt.
I believe the premise that Wheat may be very bad for us is sound. But the author then goes on to blame genetic modification of the Wheat for the badness. Isn't is far more likely that the problem is the amount of wheat that we consume because it's so inexpensive and plentiful?
There are a lot of little annoyance like this in the book. The author never really defends why he only advocates a wheat elimination diet, rather than a wheat reduction diet for the masses.
And as long as I`m pointing out annoying bits... I remember near the end, something like ``Is nuclear fission just another chemical reaction"? I don't know about your school, but in my school we leaded that nuclear fission was a nuclear reaction, not a chemical reaction :-)
Wow! This was a huge story that had everything... very weird aliens, heroic moment, sensuality, murder, intrigue, etc. I really enjoy the full circle experience, as things at the start of the book made sense at the end of the book. John Lee did a great job on Narration... but I held back one star on performance because I found little of no gap in the recording when switching between plot lines within a chapter.
Regardless, I loved the book, and I immediately ordered the next one in the series. There are just so many plot lines that I just need to know how they will turn out!
This book is simply great. It really paints a vivid a picture of Google and its founders. It held my interest throughout.
I am literally half way through this series and I will stop here. The plot line is far too predictable, and though I usually like Scott Brick as a narrator, he is just laying it on too thick. Sorry guys... I will check out the next Herbert-Anderson endeavor, and hope it is not like this.
This book was exceptional. The story was unexpectedly compelling; it seamed to have just the right mix of technology and society. Narration was bang on!
This isn't simply another book about memory tricks. It's a neat story about mastery of memory techniques, and a little bit about how the brain works. The story seamlessly runs all over the place, like interviewing the real rainman, and breaking through personal barriers by focused training. It was a very enjoyable story. And Mike's seamless narration felt like it was coming from the author.
