    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

  • Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition

    In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

    If you could sum up Whole in three words, what would they be?

    Awesomly Supersensationalistic Ideas


    Any additional comments?

    This book is about SOO much more than just nutrition! The insight in this book could be revolutionary if more people would read it. Change the world! If you care anything at all about your health, loved ones or our planet, you need to listen to this! Even if you think you already know everything about health and nutrition. He does use some big words that I had to look up from time to time,but if a simple uneducated factory worker like me can be get some of the complex ideas in this book,then surely you can. For everyone involved in providing this information, you have my deepest and sincere thanks.

    There are 62 LEGO bricks for every person in the world, and at age 30, Jonathan Bender realized that he didn't have a single one of them. While reconsidering his childhood dream of becoming a master model builder for The LEGO Group, he discovers the men and women who are skewing the averages with collections of hundreds of thousands of LEGO bricks. What is it about the ubiquitous, brightly colored toys that makes them so hard for everyone to put down?

    Stephen says: "For Adult Fans of Lego"
    "Be careful if you already like Lego"
    Overall

    This book has made me realize I have a deeper passion for Lego than I knew. I loved hearing about the history and culture of Lego. I always knew there were probably adult Lego fans out there. Now I know were to find them. Since reading this book, I have obsessively pored over Lego sights and to the delight of son I have bought way more Lego than my wife thinks sane!

    Thanks for giving insight on varieties of the cycling experience I might otherwise never have known and thoughts to think about along the way! This book has inspired me to ride my bike across North Carolina.

  • The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment

    A collection of A.J. Jacobs' most hilarious and thought-provoking experiments yet. In his role as human guinea pig, Jacobs fearlessly takes on a series of life-altering challenges that provides readers with equal parts insight and humor. (And which drives A.J.'s patient wife, Julie, to the brink of insanity.)

    David says: "Laugh out loud"
    "great listen"
    Overall

    I wish there were more like this. Jacobs approaches the world with real life curiosity and is not afraid to put himself out there. Highly recommended

    Everyone knows Scott Adams as the king of workplace humor. No office is complete without a few Dilbert strips on the wall. And if you compare a VP to the Pointy-Haired Boss, no further description is necessary. But why should a humorist stick to the workplace when there are so many other great subjects to explore? What about politics? Religion? Malfunctioning underpants?

    Steven says: "Mildly Entertaining"
    "lost in thought"
    Overall

    Open minded, observant of the world in a funny way and great ideas. You do not need to be a Dilbert fan to enjoy this book. can not wait to hear more.
