    Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, extraordinary behaviour and the human mind. He has spent his life investigating crazy events, following fascinating people and unearthing unusual stories. Collected here from various sources (including the Guardian and GQ America) are the best of his adventures.

    I really like that this book was a series of essays. Ronson's writing style is witty and engaging and I couldn't imagine it being narrated by anyone else.

    Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest alchemist of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty. The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives, but only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time.

    What did you like best about The Alchemyst? What did you like least?

    The story was incredibly cliche. It felt like so many other teen fiction novels being written these days but without any character. It wasn't terrible, just bland. You know exactly what's going to happen at every corner because they always go for the most cliche option. The narrator was very good though.

    Whether you're a recent college grad trying to figure out how to start investing, a young parent struggling to decide where and how to put away money, or someone well into middle age and worried about whether you've saved enough money for retirement, Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life has the answers.

    What disappointed you about Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life?

    For real. He is a horrible narrator. It was really annoying. I think there was some really good and helpful information in here, but I couldn't handle listening to this so I've stopped listening halfway through and plan on checking a hardcopy of the book out from the library.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James J. Cramer?

    Just about anyone.


    What character would you cut from Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life?

    Jim Cramer
