  • The Modern Scholar: Judaism, Christinanity and Islam

    Professor Peters' studies of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam allow him to offer a series of lectures beginning with Creation and ending with the Final Judgment. In this course, Professor Peters leads listeners through a comprehensive study of each of these fundamentally monotheistic religious communities. As he concludes, only by understanding their similarities and differences can we hope to make sense of the politics of religion which continue to fuel conflicts throughout the world.

    Story

    It's a good solid book with no major bias. It links the religions, their history and values enough to further understand the linkage of the universe as a whole and the place of humans in it. Recommended.

    Story

    Sleep is the subject of intense scientific debate among biologists and neuroscientists. Why must we spend about one-third of our lives asleep? What exactly is sleep? Why does a lack of sleep impair our cognitive abilities and leave us vulnerable to a host of medical issues ranging from obesity to reduced resistance to infectious disease?

    Great book for the health conscious. If you're driving tired know that most deaths from car accidents are not from alcohol but from sleep deprivation!

  • War and Peace

    Story
    (639)

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    Story

    A great book of history through story. I love the breakdown and background the author gives as well as his explanation of history and opinion.

    As I listened it reminded me of a cross between the TV Drama "The Paradise" and 'Saving Private Ryan" with a sprinkle of illuminate.

    I like the narrator - dose great female voice that brings a smile. I heard him before, narrating 'The History of the World' another 60+ hour book that he makes an easy listen.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    This book is not just an entertaining December listen, it is passively mentioned in many books and has inspired many self development books over the years. Fun narrator.
