I would not - it has a couple good tips which I could tell them myself, and is not worth the ten hours of listening or whatever.
Only if it was short.
He really knows his accents
Steal from the minibar? I'm already generally very nice to hotel staff...I thought it would be more concise and filled with tips about what to do in hotels generally. It had a few tips but really, hearing about someone's work life is not my bag.
I'd bought this because Dan Savage raved about it on his podcast and then asked for tips about getting with a hotel worker...stuff like that was totally missing from the book, and in fact it was only mildly interesting.
The story itself is surprising, the classic elements of a 19th-century tale of giants astride the earth, with lust and madness to boot. I work in technology but this book had me see a more than one thing in a new light, and has built a deep respect in me for Tesla.
Yes, but I would check the length and consider carefully - this one was a monstrous length if consistently interesting and dense. I would love access to the notes and bibliography.
I thought his voices were over-the-top and quite fun therefore. He probably wouldn't appreciate me saying that. Mostly I though it was a very creditable performance.
Maybe but that would have been impossible without a cross-country road trip involving multiple drivers going non-stop. I listened to it while cooking - about 30 minutes to an hour several times a week - and it took me a month. It's a monster.
I recommend this one; filled with facts and questions which I hadn't taken the time to consider. How did we move from no electrical transmission to cities to cables 100 miles or longer, in 1890 - 1905? Why haven't we harnessed the rotational energy of the earth to generate electricity? Etc
