    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    "THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC!"
    Overall

    I am a huge fan of both science and art and this book is at least as good as "DaVinci Code" if not better!

    The young field of quantum mechanics holds out the promise that some of humanity's wildest dreams may be realized. Serious scientists, working off of theories first developed by Einstein and his colleagues 70 years ago, have been investigating the phenomenon known as "entanglement," one of the strangest aspects of the strange universe of quantum mechanics. New experiments suggest it does happen, and that it may lead to unbreakable codes, and even teleportation...

    Kenneth says: "Quantum Physics + People = Good Stuff"
    "I LOVED THIS BOOK!"
    Overall

    This is my favorite since Bill Bryson's "Short History of Almost Everything." If you loved that one you will love this one too!!! I look forward to listening to it again and again.

    In this landmark new study of Western thought, Anthony Gottlieb looks afresh at the writings of the great thinkers, questions much of conventional wisdom, and explains his findings with unbridled brilliance and clarity. After finishing The Dream of Reason, listeners will be graced with a fresh appreciation of the philosophical quest, its entertaining and bizarre byways, and its influence on every aspect of life.

    Amazon Customer says: "An in depth read."
    "Too negative"
    Overall

    I was a philosophy major. I found it a chore to listen to this whole thing. The tone of voice of this narrator and the content of this book made me feel like I was forced to listen to 16 hours of someone complaining what was wrong about philosophy.

    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    Victor says: "still a winner!!!"
    "I loved it!"
    Overall

    I actually loved this even more than reading the book because of the the author doing the voices. My favorite: the mice saying "Yes, thank you Slarty Bartfast, you may go." (at time = 4:33)

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.
